Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry service that can make your teeth look brighter and whiter. Tooth whitening can remove stains and discolouration caused by food, drinks, tobacco, or aging. Tooth whitening can also improve your smile and confidence.
At O’Connor Dental Surgery, we offer two tooth-whitening options: in-office and at-home. Both options use safe and gentle professional-grade products on teeth and gums.
In-office whitening:
In-office whitening is a quick and effective way to whiten your teeth in one visit. We will apply a whitening gel to your teeth and activate it with a special light. The gel contains hydrogen peroxide, a bleaching agent that can lighten your teeth by several shades. The procedure takes about an hour, and you will see the results immediately.
At-home whitening:
At-home whitening is a convenient and affordable way to whiten your teeth at your own pace. We will provide custom-made trays that fit your teeth and a whitening gel containing carbamide peroxide, a bleaching agent that can gradually lighten your teeth. You will wear the trays and gel for a few hours a day, for about two weeks, or until you achieve the desired shade.
Tooth whitening is a safe and effective way to enhance your smile and appearance. However, it is not suitable for everyone. Tooth whitening will not work on crowns, veneers, fillings, or dentures. Tooth whitening may also cause some sensitivity or irritation, which is usually temporary and mild. Tooth whitening is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, children under 16, or people with gum disease, tooth decay, or allergies.
