Effectively remove stains and safely lighten the colour of your teeth with professional teeth whitening. At Clinique Dentaire Dr Alain Quinn, our dentists offer both in-office and take-home treatment options for patients in Gatineau.
Why Teeth Darken
As you age, your teeth become more vulnerable to staining from food and other substances. Because your tooth enamel attracts food particles naturally, products such as red wine, tea, coffee, tobacco, and nicotine can cause staining on your teeth.
How Teeth Whitening Works
To whiten your teeth, our Gatineau dentists use peroxide-based bleaching agents. As the active ingredient breaks down, oxygen acts on the tooth enamel and creates the whitening effect we see.
Whitening agents used in teeth whitening are designed to reverse the yellowing effects staining and aging can have, lightening the colour of your teeth, and restoring the appearance of your smile.
Teeth Whitening Options
At Clinique Dentaire Dr Alain Quinn, we offer both in-office and take-home treatment options for teeth whitening.
We can help whiten your smile effectively and safely during an appointment at our Gatineau dental clinic. First, a dentist will protect your gums by applying a barrier around them. Each tooth will then be covered with a thin layer of gel. The chemicals in the gel will begin to activate.
You may prefer to lighten your teeth from the comfort and convenience of your own home using a custom whitening tray that we will create to restore the brightness of your smile.
