Teeth Whitening in Laval
What is Professional Teeth Whitening?
As we get older, our teeth can naturally get darker by becoming stained and discoloured, both inside the tooth and on the surface. There are a number of factors that can cause tooth discolouration, including:
- Foods and beverages like coffee and red wine
- Dental hygiene upkeep
Professional teeth whitening can be a safe and effective way to help brighten your smile. The process is simple, non-invasive, and can lighten the colour of your natural tooth by targeting and removing stains.
The team at Espaces Sourires can help you determine if whitening your teeth is a good choice for you.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Your smile can be one of the first things that people notice upon meeting you, and having a brighter smile could boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Additionally, taking care of your oral health can have an impact on your overall health and well-being.
How Teeth Whitening Works
Our dentists use a peroxide-based gel in teeth whitening treatments. This gel breaks down stain molecules, which can leave you with a whiter, brighter-looking smile. The peroxide gel is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and safe for use.
Different shades of white suits different people's smiles. Your dental professional will help you choose the right shade for your teeth.
Whitening with Personalized Trays
At-home whitening using personalized trays is a popular choice with patients. Using these specially-designed trays, you can apply the whitening gel yourself and wear the trays every day. The daily duration and number of days that you should use this treatment will be predetermined by your dentist.
Ready-to-Wear Opalescence Go Whitening Treatment
The Opalescence Go teeth whitening treatment is a professional option for teeth whitening that is intended for patients who already have well-aligned teeth.
Opalescence Go aligners are already manufactured and pre-filled. You put the trays yourself on your teeth and wear them for 60-90 minutes daily, for a predetermined treatment duration.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Read the answers to our most frequently asked questions about teeth whitening at Espaces Sourires.
How long do the effects of teeth whitening last?
The effects of teeth whitening are not permanent. Beverages like coffee and wine, and certain foods like those containing turmeric, can stain the teeth. Depending on diet, the effects of whitening may last longer for some people than others. If you maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine, you may desire a touch-up after about a year.
Does insurance cover the cost of teeth whitening?
Dental insurance does not generally cover the cost of teeth whitening.
Does teeth whitening make teeth more sensitive?
Some patients may experience sensitivity as a short-term effect of teeth whitening. For most patients, this fades away within a few days following a whitening session. To minimize any discomfort, we recommend that you use an anti-sensitivity toothpaste before treatment, and for at least two weeks following your treatment.
Do teeth whitening products work on all stains?
For the most part, brown and yellow-coloured stains are most effectively treated by teeth whitening. Some stains tend not to respond to whitening treatments at all. If having a whiter smile is important to you but your teeth have non-responsive stains, your dentist may recommend other cosmetic treatments such as dental crowns or veneers that may be a better fit for you.
Does teeth whitening work on dental restorations?
Unfortunately, no. Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth and will not work on existing dental restorations like dental crowns or veneers. If crowns or veneers are part of your treatment plan, teeth whitening should take place before you receive your dental restorations so that the colour of the restorations match your whiter smile more closely.
Will teeth whitening damage my tooth enamel?
When used by a qualified dental expert, teeth whitening is unlikely to damage your dental enamel. Always consult with your dentist to ensure you are using any teeth whitening products safely. If you experience any pain, sensitivity, or discomfort anywhere in your mouth, let your dentist know right away. Even if it’s not related to whitening, they will be able to help.
