What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening can be defined as the process of whitening natural teeth. When done in a dental clinic, it may involve the use of whitening “agents” like pastes and/or other technologies like lasers.

Most importantly, teeth whitening services offered by a dental clinic observe the highest standards of safety and effectiveness.

Why Do Teeth Turn Yellow, Darken, Or Stain?

Stained teeth or discoloration of teeth can be traced back to factors like age, lifestyle, food, drinks, genetics, and fluoride (1). Let’s take a closer look. 

  1. Wear over time (aging): As we age, the outer covering (enamel) wears off from years of chewing and exposure to food and drinks. As the enamel becomes thinner, it naturally changes colour (turns yellow or greyish).

2. Lifestyle habits: Smoking tends to stain the teeth, resulting in a brownish or yellowish surface.

3. Some foods and drinks: Drinks like coffee and tea, as well as eating foods like curry spices, have pigments that stain the teeth’s enamel over time.

4. Genetics: Genes may also be to blame. Some people are genetically predisposed to teeth with grayish or yellowish shades.

5. Fluorosis: Excess fluoride can cause brownish and yellowish spots on the teeth.

The above factors, among others like trauma and tooth decay, can either cause extrinsic stains (surface stains) or intrinsic stains (stains inside the teeth, within the dentin).

Our Teeth Whitening Process

Getting teeth whitening services at Dr. Claire Benmergui Family & Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic is fast and simple. Here is a quick overlook of our process:

Step 1: Oral examination. All our patients undergo an oral exam to establish the best teeth whitening treatment for them. 

Step 2: Teeth Cleaning. Before whitening, we do a deep cleaning. We may offer appropriate treatment if the underlying cause of teeth stains is a dental condition like tooth decay.

Step 3: Teeth whitening. The best possible teeth whitening method is used based on the unique needs of a patient. When using whitening gels, for instance, the gel is applied and left to seep into the enamel and dentin layers of the teeth. The gel breaks down the stains making it easy to wash them away through dental cleaning. When the stains fade, the natural white colour of underlying teeth shines through resulting in a white bright smile. 

The effectiveness of whitening gels is dependent on factors like gel concentration and treatment duration. Gels also work perfectly with extrinsic stains. We know the most effective whitening gels to use and how to use them safely to eliminate stubborn stains and deliver unmatched teeth whiteness in a single session.

We can use other teeth whitening methods we see fit after an oral examination. We can suggest dental veneers or other cosmetic dental treatments for stubborn stains. Let’s discuss the best teeth whitening treatment for you. Click here to claim your FREE cosmetic/restorative consultation.

FAQs About Cosmetic Dentist Whitening in North York


1) How Much Is Teeth Whitening in Toronto?

The cost of teeth whitening depends on the underlying treatment. Simple take-home whitening kits cost $10 to $150, but the quality of those results cannot be guaranteed. Professional teeth whitening can cost more because it is a safe and long-lasting procedure. 

However, costs can always fall outside this range based on factors like the number of treatment sessions required, other dental services needed, and the experience of the dentist in question. Book a FREE consultation to get an accurate cost estimate for your case.

2) Is Tooth Whitening for Everyone?

No! Some types of tooth whitening treatments, like bleaching products, aren’t recommendable for patients with crowns, fillings, and other related restorations. Teeth whitening is also recommendable for adults only as the treatment can increase teeth sensitivity among younger patients.

Pregnant women, lactating mothers, and people with serious dental diseases (like gum disease) should also avoid treatment. The same applies to people with thin/worn dental enamel.

3) What are the Main Types of Teeth Whitening Treatments?

Generally, there are over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments and professional teeth whitening treatments. Professional treatments include in-office whitening treatments which are the most effective type with guaranteed results.
