Facts & Questions
Should I whiten my teeth?
Regardless of how well you care for your teeth, discoloration will happen over time. If you feel your teeth are dull, stained, or discolored, teeth whitening may be a great option for you!
How white will my teeth get?
Depending on the session you choose to book, your teeth will get anywhere from 2 - 10 shades lighter. Results will vary from person to person.
What should I expect at my appointment?
On the day of your appointment we will do a quick consultation to determine which whitening treatment plan is right for you. Once a treatment plan has been determined, we can then start on the whitening process.

Which session should I book?

Does it matter who whitens my teeth?
While there are both at home kits for teeth whitening, professional whitening treatments will yield better, faster results and will result in minimal to no teeth sensitivity unlike store bought whitening kits. Getting your teeth whitened by professionals is always the better option for the safety of your teeth and gums.
How long will my teeth stay white?
You will start to notice your pearly whites start to fade in as little time as 4 - 6 weeks. We recommend scheduling routine maintenance whitening every 3 - 4 months.
Will it hurt?
At The WPC, we evaluate your teeth and give a proper treatment plan for your teeth whitening needs. Our teeth whitening products don’t usually create sensitivity but everyone is different. If you experience sensitivity periodically without the use of whitening treatments then it is recommended to visit your dentist before coming to see us.
Will whitening burn my gums?
Apart from whitening your teeth we take the proper precautions to protect your gums as well.
H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) can irritate the gingival tissues and create chemical burns if a gingival barrier is not placed correctly. A chemical burn on the gums can take 4-6 weeks to heal properly with the proper care from a dentist/periodontist. Caring for your gums is one of the many ways to visit a dental professional for whitening.
Who shouldn't whiten?
Children under 15 years old
If you have not visited the dentist in the past 2 years (optional but strongly recommended)
Individuals with metal or ceramic braces
Individuals with severe fluorosis
Individuals with cavities on anterior teeth
