What is teeth whitening?
It is a procedure designed to remove stains and discoloration and lighten teeth pigmentation. As your dentist in Edmonton, we will custom design the best method to whiten your teeth based on your unique needs. The materials in whitening kits contain different levels of carbamide peroxide…one of the safest chemicals on the market to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening can be done safely, quickly, and reliably at MAK dental.
Are teeth whitening procedures safe?
Yes, whitening your teeth with us is safe. We’ll only use professional whitening agents so that we can be confident in their effectiveness as well as their safety.
If you choose to buy products over the counter, please note that these have significantly less active ingredient, which means it will likely take much more time to get results. The results are not guaranteed. Some of the over the counter options include whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, and whitening gels. Please discuss whitening methods with us before trying one that is not professionally prescribed. As your dentist in Edmonton, we will recommend a treatment plan that best addresses your needs.
