Taking Care of Your Pearly Whites

It’s said the most beautiful thing a person can wear is a smile. But what happens when your smile is looking a little lacklustre and isn’t something you want to show off? Leave it to the pros.


If you’ve considered whitening your teeth before, it’s time to take the plunge and trust the professional team at Westshore Dental Centre.


Professional teeth whitening is a safe, gentle, and effective way to enhance your smile, turn up the vibrancy, and boost your confidence as a result. Whitening pastes, gels, strips, and at-home devices are commonly available in your local drug store, but these quick over-the-counter options can require repeated use and applications and may not yield the dramatic results we all want. In fact, sometimes, they don’t give us any results at all.


In-office teeth whitening can typically be done in one visit and patients can see results ranging from 4-8 shades whiter in just one treatment. Your mouth is prepped, and a thin layer of whitening gel is applied, followed by a protective sealant. Then simply brush your teeth and be on your way! It’s that easy.


Whether you’re a regular patient or haven’t seen a dentist in decades, the Westshore Dental Centre team is committed to ensuring your teeth and mouth are in the best shape possible, and your smile is one you’ll always want to show off.
