Our teeth naturally darken over time. Couple this with smoking or consuming food and drink like berries, tea, coffee, and red wine, and our teeth can quickly go from white to dull yellow. Stained or yellowed teeth can cause emotional discomfort and affect our self-esteem.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures for a good reason: it’s safe, effective, and the results are almost immediate.

Teeth whitening may offer many advantages, including:
In addition, teeth whitening is affordable, and the procedure is safe, quick, and easy.
At Alexandra Park Dental, we offer two teeth whitening options. Before we decide which one is best for you, we will schedule a consultation to examine your teeth and discuss your goals.
Our in-office teeth whitening system can whiten teeth by up to six to eight shades lighter in as little as one visit.
We suggest all whitening patients undergo a thorough teeth cleaning before each whitening procedure. After this, we will apply a layer of whitening gel to your teeth, which is activated using a special LED lamp. Depending on your teeth and your desired results, this process may be repeated up to three times.
After the lamp is finished, we will apply a post-treatment gel that protects your enamel and reduces tooth sensitivity. The entire process typically takes less than an hour from start to finish.
If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home on your schedule, we can provide you with a kit that contains customized dental trays, tooth whitening gel, and detailed instructions.
To start the process, begin by brushing your teeth thoroughly. Then, place a small amount of whitening gel into each tray and wear them for the recommended amount of time. When this time has lapsed, remove and clean the trays, and rinse your mouth thoroughly with cool water to remove any remaining gel.
Although results may not be as immediate as our in-office whitening process, most patients who follow their whitening regimen faithfully experience noticeable results within 2 weeks.
