Teeth Whitening in Pickering
Brighten Your Smile
Our teeth can darken over time due to various factors such as eating certain foods or drinking coffee or tea. Even aging can have an affect on our teeth.
As we age, the white enamel surface of our teeth may wear down, making the yellow colour core of the teeth more apparent. You may also notice discolouration from habits such as smoking or a lack of oral hygiene upkeep. Regardless of the reason, people often look for a solution to restore their smile to a brighter state.
Professional teeth whitening with Zoom!® In-Office Whitening System can help you safely and effectively lighten the colour of your teeth. The process is easy, minimally invasive, and targets and removes stains to lighten the colour of your teeth.

Zoom!® In-Office Whitening System
At Dentistry on Liverpool, we use the safe, effective, and fast tooth whitening system, Zoom! This system uses LED technology that minimizes tooth sensitivity following the whitening procedure.
The procedure begins by covering your lips and gums with an isolation material. Next, your dental professional will apply Zoom! whitening gel to your teeth. To activate the Zoom! whitening gel, your dental professional uses a low-heat LED light that penetrates the teeth. Your dental professional will repeat this procedure two more times for the Zoom! teeth whitening system to reach its full effect.
Personalized Take-Home Teeth Whitening
You can also achieve a whiter and brighter smile at home using our take-home whitening kits. If you choose the take-home whitening option, we will make impressions of your mouth to create custom whitening trays. You will apply a whitening gel to these trays and wear them according to the directions for use. At the end of the treatment period, you should notice that your teeth appear visibly whiter.
What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
Since your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you, having a brighter smile can boost your confidence.
Additionally, a whiter smile can encourage you to take extra care of your oral hygiene, which is beneficial for your overall health and well-being.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Read the answers to our most frequently asked questions about teeth whitening at Dentistry on Liverpool.
How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?
Your diet has an impact on the longevity of your teeth whitening results. Certain foods, such as those that contain turmeric, and dark beverages like wine, or coffee, can stain your teeth. You may only require a touch-up after a year or so as long as you maintain proper oral hygiene practices.
Does insurance cover the cost of teeth whitening?
Dental insurance does not typically cover the cost of teeth whitening. Our administrative staff can help you better understand your insurance plan to see what treatments are covered.
Does teeth whitening make teeth more sensitive?
After undergoing teeth whitening treatment, you may experience some sensitivity for a short period. For most patients, this fades away within a few days. To minimize any discomfort, we would suggest that you use an anti-sensitivity toothpaste before treatment, and for at least one or two weeks following your treatment.
Do teeth whitening products work on all stains?
Typically, brown, and yellow-coloured stains respond best to teeth whitening treatments. That being said, some types of stains will not respond to whitening treatment at all. If having a whiter smile is important to you but your teeth have non-responsive stains, cosmetic treatments such as dental crowns or veneers may be the appropriate solution.
Does teeth whitening work on dental restorations?
Unfortunately, teeth whitening only works on natural teeth and will not work on existing dental restorations, such as dental crowns or veneers. If crowns or veneers are part of your treatment plan, teeth whitening should take place before you receive your dental restorations so that they will match the new colour.
Will teeth whitening damage my tooth enamel?
When used under the supervision of a qualified dentist, it is unlikely that teeth whitening treatment will damage your dental enamel. Always consult with your dentist to ensure you are using any teeth whitening products safely. If you experience any pain, sensitivity, or discomfort anywhere in your mouth, let your dentist know right away.
