Teeth Whitening

Aging, diet, injuries along with many other factors cause teeth to dull and yellow. Teeth Whitening has become a popular dental solution to this problem. Whitening is a mild bleaching process that restores stained or discoloured teeth to a healthy, natural colour. The process is very safe under the supervision of a dental professional.
The results from Whitening can last for as long as a year and with touch-up treatments (at home) every few months, results can last even longer. "Touch-ups" are especially useful for patients that drink coffee, tea, red wine and other teeth staining beverages regularly.
St. Clair Dental Associates can help you get your teeth at their whitest.

Reason for Tooth Discolouration include:

  • Drinking coffee, tea, wine or soft drinks stains teeth
  • Natural aging – The dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth darkens
  • Smoking or any tobacco use stains teeth
  • Accidents – a dead nerve will darken a tooth
  • Root Canal Therapy

Ask us about professional teeth whitening as well as over the counter agents at St. Clair Dental. We can help you compare treatments and determine which solution will be most effective for you.

Avoid common staining foods such as: coffee, tea, red wine, dark cola, ketchip, mustard, soy sauce, berries, deep greens and tomato-based products etc. Acidic and citric drinks and foods may increase sensitivity as well.
