Teeth Whitening

Smiles at Stanmore offers One-hour teeth whitening as well as Take-home whitening systems.

One-hour Teeth Whitening.

How does it work?
With Opalescence Xtra Boost, you will have whiter teeth before you leave the dental practice.
This product is so advanced, it does not require a laser or a light for activation. Through enhanced chemical activation, we can now whiten your teeth without the bothersome heat or harmful ultraviolet rays.
The product simply activates itself as it sits on your teeth.
It’s simple. It’s easy. And, in about an hour, you’ll have noticeably whiter teeth.

Will additional whitening be necessary?
The in-office procedure is the greatest jumpstart to whiter teeth.
But, most likely you’ll want to continue whitening after your procedure to ensure that your teeth realize their whitest potential.
Dr. Sacco will provide you with a system for follow-up treatment that you can use at home for the next couple of days as your teeth continue whitening and eventually stabilize to their final colour.

How do I keep my smile white?
After you have the white smile you’ve long desired, it’s important to keep it that way. Practice good oral hygiene and always remember to brush after consuming staining food or beverages.

Opalescence® Take-Home System.
Opalescence® is a take-home product and is a very popular teeth whitening method.
You are provided with custom-fitted trays for your upper and lower teeth and plastic syringes containing the Opalescence® whitening gel (containing the active ingredient carbamide peroxide) to take home.
The purpose of the custom fitted tray is to ensure a snug fit for the dosing of the whitening gel whilst minimising contact with gums.
Opalescence® has the added benefit of potassium nitrate and fluoride to minimise tooth sensitivity and does not leach like other take home whitening gels.
We offer two types of Opalescence kits® – day or night system to fit in with your schedule. Typically, you should see results in 5-7days of your two week treatment program.
The benefit of the Opalescence® take home teeth whitening system is that you get a cost effective gradual shade improvement over time.
