West Kelowna's Teeth Whitening Experts
Teeth whitening is an effective solution for restoring that lustrous smile. Over the course of several years, teeth can lose their bright shine due to the use of tobacco, drinking coffee or other dark-coloured liquids, or simply improper care or neglect. Tooth whitening helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures in West Kelowna as it can vastly improve how your teeth look.
Who Is Whitening For?
Whitening is not a catch-all solution. We recommend its use in tandem with an overall strategy that addresses the ongoing maintenance of proper oral health. Cavities need to be treated before teeth are whitened, because the whitening solution can pass through decayed areas and reach the inner parts of the tooth. If your gums have receded, the exposed roots of your teeth may be discolored, and whitening will not help this. If you have tooth decay or receding gums, whitening may make your teeth sensitive. Whitening also does not work on ceramic or porcelain crowns or veneers.

Expert Teeth Whitening Procedure
The outer layer of a tooth is called the enamel. Having smoother or rougher enamel also affects the reflection of light and therefore the color. The simplest whitening procedures we offer in Westbank entails a process of bleaching. Rest assured, we protect your gums by placing rubber shield or gel on first. The active ingredient is usually hydrogen peroxide or a similar substance; this allows oxygen to get into the enamel of the teeth, lightening their tone and shade of colour. Whitening doesn’t give a “totally white” look to teeth – it’s not a complete colour change, but rather lightens the existing shade of the teeth.
“Why can’t I just buy that ‘whitening’ stuff from the drugstore?”
That’s a question we hear quite often from curious patients. And why not? We all want to save money – when it’s feasible and prudent. Unfortunately, when it comes to the cheaper solutions available on the retail market, we must recommend against their use, as they can cause harm to the gums and teeth. Instead, we encourage you to speak with us about whitening treatments at Westside Dental Centre. We provide safer options, which are more effective and, in the long run, will deliver a greater value.
Frequently Asked Questions
The frequency of your dental exam will depend on your unique dental health care needs. Many patients visit the dentist every six months. At a minimum you should visit the dentist at least once per year. How well you care for your teeth, whether you have any issues that need monitoring and the status of your general health can all influence the required frequency of your exams. The goal is to catch any trouble signs early.
Talk to your dentist about your oral health care needs and the frequency of your dental exam.
The BCDA has produced a patient fact sheet to help you understand some of the things your dentist may look for during your exam. What is included in a dental exam or at each visit is not the same for everyone. Factors such as age, dental health status, level of general health, medication use and lifestyle choices may influence what is covered. Ask your dentist if you have any questions about your exam or what your dentist is looking for during your exam.
The early stages of dental disease do not have any symptoms. Dental disease is not reversible so prevention and early detection is extremely important. Your dentist is trained to catch early signs of conditions affecting your mouth to stop the progression of disease and prevent small problems from becoming larger ones.
