Realize Your Brightest Smile

Professional teeth whitening for your best smile.

While there are plenty of at-home teeth whitening kits and products on the market, they cannot safely offer the chemical concentration to deliver the dramatic results you can achieve with in-office teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening allows you to achieve your brightest smile possible without damaging your mouth.

White teeth can make you appear healthier and younger. Dr. Robert Lesniak offers professional whitening in St. Albert, Alberta, to help patients achieve a healthy, stunning smile. With a whiter smile, you’ll feel more confident laughing and smiling for pictures, free to express and present yourself without inhibition. Schedule your consultation to discuss how you can achieve your picture-perfect smile.

What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening contains a higher concentration of peroxide for faster, better results. While at-home teeth whitening can brighten your teeth three to six shades with weeks of daily one-hour treatments, professional whitening can achieve a difference of up to eight shades or more in one appointment. Because professional teeth whitening penetrates deeper than at-home treatments, results are also significantly longer lasting.

What are the benefits of Professional Whitening?

Exponential benefits from one simple treatment.

Professional whitening offers immediately noticeable results within just one to two hours. With substantially whiter teeth, your face will appear healthy and rejuvenated. A brighter smile can draw attention away from fine lines and wrinkles to further enhance the appearance of youth. With such a significant impact on your overall appearance, your professional teeth whitening results will increase your confidence and empower you personally and professionally.

In addition to the cosmetic and social benefits of professional whitening, treatment is both time and cost-efficient. While at-home treatments are less expensive per treatment, the overall cost of repeated treatments to reach your goals can easily surpass the price of in-office treatment. Our St. Albert professional teeth whitening treatment can ultimately produce better results for less time and money.

Professional Teeth Whitening Candidacy

Is this treatment right for you?

Ideal candidates for professional whitening are patients with healthy gums who have minimal or no fillings or restorations. People who will achieve the most noticeable results with professional whitening are those who have stains due to drinking coffee or tea regularly, tobacco use, or other factors. Yellow-tinted staining typically responds best to treatment versus stains with grayer tones, but even those gray stained teeth can still see significant improvement with our St. Albert professional teeth whitening treatment.

Your Professional Whitening Procedure

Before professional teeth whitening St. Albert cosmetic dentist Dr. Lesniak and his team will record the current shade of your teeth. Next, he will polish your teeth with a pumice that will remove any plaque from the surface of your teeth. Using gauze, retractors, and a barrier along the gum line, your teeth will be isolated to keep them dry and protect surrounding tissues from the whitening peroxide solution.

Dr. Lesniak will apply a coat of the teeth whitening solution to the front surfaces of your teeth. Dr. Lesniak may use a curing light or laser to activate the peroxide. The solution will be allowed to sit for 30 to 60 minutes. Once your teeth have reached their optimal whiteness or the maximum time has elapsed, Dr. Lesniak will rinse the solution and apply fluoride and other agents to reduce sensitivity. Some patients opt to undergo more than one treatment to achieve their goals.

Professional Whitening Recovery

Ensuring your best and longest-lasting results.

For 48 hours after your teeth whitening treatment, you should avoid any highly pigmented foods or beverages, including coffee, tea, yellow mustard, ketchup, tomato juice and sauce, black grapes, candy, beets, and red wine. You should also avoid smoking and other tobacco products. Some sensitivity can occur, and can last for several days. This varies from patient to patients, and Dr. Lesniak provides at-home care solutions to help reduce this sensitivity.
