Hamilton Teeth Whitening

We can bleach away ugly yellow stains from red wine, tobacco and coffee

Teeth whitening allows us to remove or reduce stains on your teeth, giving them a brighter, more attractive appearance. Jackson Square Dental Centre can use this popular technology to help give you the smile of your dreams.

Our teeth develop stains because the enamel becomes more porous as we age, and gradually becomes darker. Acidic foods and drinks — such as diet soda — make the enamel even more porous, and leave it vulnerable to stains. Tobacco, red wine, coffee and tea are the most likely to leave those ugly yellow stains on our teeth.

Dentists use different types of peroxide solution to whiten our teeth. The solution penetrates the enamel of our teeth, oxidizing the stains and bleaching the layer of tooth beneath the enamel.

You can whiten your teeth at home — using kits you can purchase from Jackson Square Dental Centre — or you can receive professional Hamilton teeth whitening in our conveniently-located office.

Contact Jackson Square Dental Centre today to learn more about how teeth whitening in Hamilton could completely change your smile.

FAQs — Click to reveal the answers to teeth whitening questions

Q: Can I get my teeth really white just by using a whitening toothpaste?

A: The enamel on our teeth darkens with age, and even the most skilled brushing and flossing — and fancy toothpastes or home remedies like baking soda — cannot prevent that from happening entirely. You can do your part to keep your teeth bright by brushing and flossing daily, not using tobacco, and limiting your intake of staining foods and drinks (like red wine, coffee, and tea).

Q: If I want my teeth to be whiter, should I stop drinking red wine?

A: Red wine, coffee and tea are notorious for causing ugly yellow stains on your teeth. Diet soda is also a problem, because its acidity breaks down your tooth's enamel — leaving it prone to stains. You don't need to avoid these beverages entirely — just be mindful of what they might do to your smile, and try to limit your intake.

Q: Are at-home tooth-whitening kits just as good as getting in-office whitening?

A: The teeth whitening kits available for purchase at Jackson Square Dental Centre are of a very high quality, and are superior to a kit you may purchase in a drugstore. But an advantage to our in-office whitening is the powerful lights we use to accelerate the bleaching process.

Q: Does my dental insurance cover teeth whitening?

A: Teeth whitening is typically an “extra” that is not covered by insurance, but everyone has different coverage. We would be happy to help you understand your available coverage, so please ask us at your next appointment.
