Whitening

It would be fair to say that of any cosmetic treatment, teeth whitening can offer the most obvious, positive improvement to appearance. There are a number of different teeth whitening procedures available today, some take longer than others; some involve treatments at home while others can be completed after a single treatment in the clinic. Here at Dentalcare West, we can help you decide on the best treatment for you.

Philips Zoom! In-office Whitening

Zoom whitening is the safest and most effective whitening system in the market. The Zoom system uses an LED light to enhance the whitening effect rather than a UV light, making it safer for patients. It is performed in the dental chair for around one and a half hours. With Zoom, whitening results can be seen instantly.

Opalescence Take Home Whitening

This process typically involves two appointments: First appointment- In this consultation we assess if your teeth are suitable for whitening. We then take dental impressions of your teeth to create well-fitted custom-made trays for you. Second appointment- you will be fitted with the whitening trays. Results can be seen within a couple of days up to two weeks.


We recommend a dental check up as well as a scale and polish with one of our hygienists before whitening for optimal results.
