Professional Grade Teeth Whitening Services

Professional teeth whitening stands out from over-the-counter versions for its increased efficacy. Although both home and professional grade whitening procedures use similar chemicals, Dr. Rusteika can use a much higher concentration of the active whitening ingredient. This results in a more even, brighter shade of white.

One of the drawbacks of at-home whitening gel is that it can cause aching or tenderness when applied to teeth. At Southland Dental Clinic in Regina, this highly concentrated whitening gel can be applied in a more controlled setting. This form of whitening is particularly helpful for discoloration associated with aging, tobacco use, or consumption of coffee, soda, and other dark-colored beverages.

If you’ve been longing for a brighter smile, don’t hesitate to transform your look. Contact us today to learn more about the teeth whitening options Regina patients receive from Dr. Rusteika and staff. They are experts in helping patients find the perfect shade of white to complement their skin tone and overall appearance. Make an appointment today to refresh your smile.

Take Home Teeth Whitening Options

For those that prefer to do it themselves at home, tray based tooth whiteners are the way to go. Upon your visit with to Southland Dental we would take dental impressions of your teeth. The impressions or “mold” would be sent to a dental lab where they would fabricate a mouth guard-like tray that is an exact fit to your teeth. When you are ready to whiten your teeth you would simply fill the trays with a small amount of peroxide-based bleaching agent and press the tray firmly in place. These trays would be worn for a couple hours per day until the desired shade is reached. You would keep these trays and bleaching agent for future use or whenever think you need to brighten your smile again!

Before After

Factors that Cause Teeth to Become Dull or Discolored

When babies begin to teeth, they have beautiful pearly whites that pop through their gums. However, this lovely white color is short lived. A number of factors contribute to teeth that become duller or discolored. Modifying your diet or lifestyle can prevent some of this discoloration, and teeth whitening services can restore your natural shade. Consider the following factors:

  • Coffee – Coffee drinkers often develop brownish teeth from their habit.
  • Tobacco products – Both smoking cigarettes and chewing tobacco contribute to discolored teeth. These brown stains may be lightened by teeth whitening procedures.
  • Wine – Regularly drinking red wine can discolor your teeth.
  • Soda – Frequently drinking soda may discolor your teeth. Rinsing with water or mouthwash after enjoying a beverage may help.
  • Aging – Simply getting older can cause your teeth to become yellow. This is because the outer enamel coating on teeth tends to wear away, revealing the yellowish dentin layer beneath.
  • Poor dental hygiene – Failing to floss and brush your teeth regularly promotes the growth of bacteria. Oral bacteria often cause teeth to develop a yellowish tint.

Frequently Asked Questions:

There are different ways to whiten and brighten your smile. The two main choices are at-home tooth whitening and in-office professional teeth whitening in our Regina cosmetic dentist office. Our highly educated and trained team have professionally whitened the teeth of thousands of patients in and around Regina.

Bleaching gels do cause some tooth sensitivity, which may cause very mild discomfort. This sensitivity is never permanent and goes away within 1-3 days of when you finish whitening. We will customize your treatment so as to minimize or completely eliminate any sensitivity. Some brands of bleaching gel contain desensitizing agents that help to alleviate post-bleaching sensitivity. Using a desensitizing toothpaste like Sensodyne or Prevident 5000 will help minimize discomfort.

Immediately after bleaching, the color of your teeth will typically fade and then remain stable for approximately six months to a year. For maintenance purposes, it is recommended that you touch up your smile every 4-6 months with 1-3 sessions of at home whitening with your complimentary home kit that comes with your Chair-side whitening.

All bleaching agents used to whiten teeth will only work on natural tooth structure. This means that all dental work including but not limited to bonding, veneers, crowns and bridges will not whiten.
