What are the different teeth whitening solutions in Ottawa?
Teeth whitening Ottawa solutions are often available in both in-office and take-home formats. Though both are readily available, Ottawa teeth whitening professional can give you noticeably whiter and longer-lasting results.
If you choose an over-the-counter whitening kit, we suggest that you pick one approved by the American Dental Association. You also need to follow closely the directions on its package. Over-The-Counter kits require 7-30 days of consistent use for full effect and results vary greatly between users.
Dentist-supervised treatments are a very convenient alternative that offers better and faster whitening results than the regular store-bought whitening kits.
A take-home kit provided by Parliament Hill Dental contains a higher concentration of whitening agent than regular over-the-counter kits and is very easy to use. Chances are, if you want to get results, you will be more satisfied with one of our kits than a store-bought one.
After our team performs a thorough exam of your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure, we will sit down with you and discuss the best option to achieve the smile you want.
If the agreed-upon treatment is the in-office treatment, the team at Parliament Hill Dental will:
- Prepare your mouth by covering your lips and gums to only expose your teeth
- Apply a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth
- Expose your teeth to a special light for 15 minutes
- Make sure you are comfortable and that you are relaxing in your chair
- Reapply the gel and light treatment two more times
The usual lifespan of whitened teeth ranges between 4-12 months, depending on the type of treatment chosen and the dietary habits (blueberries, coffee, wine and tea). To keep your teeth white for the longest time the secret is simple: good oral hygiene.

Teeth Whitening FAQ
Q.1. How Is Teeth Whitening Done?
Teeth are continuously exposed to a wide variety of food colorants and, over time, they are likely to lose some of their pearly white color and shine. Teeth whitening is a process of removing stains and discoloration using Hydrogen Peroxide Gel (not bleach!). When done properly, it is a safe and effective method of restoring the brightness and freshness of your smile. If you choose the in-office treatment, your dentist applies a layer of gel to your teeth and leaves them under a special light for a period of about 15 minutes. If necessary, the process can be extended or repeated. The average teeth whitening session can last from 30 minutes to 2 hours. If you prefer, you can purchase a take-home whitening kit. You will have to use the kit regularly, one to three times per week, for a few weeks. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages. It will be up to you and your dentist to decide which method is best for you.
Q.2. How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?
Teeth whitening is not permanent. The whitening can last from several months up to 2-3 years. If you smoke or consume dark liquids like wine, coffee, and tea frequently, the results will not last as long. Our Ottawa teeth whitening dentist will guide you on how to take the best care of your teeth and make your teeth whitening treatment last longer.
Q.3. Does Teeth Whitening Work On Dental Veneers?
Teeth whitening treatment is not for everyone. If you happen to have many cosmetic or prosthetic restorations such as crowns, white fillings, or veneers, teeth whitening may not be suitable for you. Whitening could potentially lead to unevenly tinted teeth. If you are considering teeth whitening, feel free to call and make an appointment for a consultation. Our Ottawa dentists will be happy to evaluate the state of your oral health and make recommendations that will work best for you.
Q.4. Are There Any Special Instructions To Follow After Teeth Whitening?
Yes, in the sense that you want the results of the teeth whitening treatment to last as long as possible. First, you have to continue (or even improve) your regular daily hygiene routine. You must keep your teeth clean and healthy. Second, you will want to avoid as much as possible foods and drinks that are likely to cause staining. The list includes coffee, red wine, fruit juice, dark sodas, beer, black tea, chocolate, etc. Our dentists will give you a list of things to avoid and tell you about the things you can eat instead. If you are a smoker, you may want to consider stopping or at least cutting down. Finally, you can consider whitening touch-ups to maintain your pearly white smile for as long as possible.
Q.5 How Often Can You Get Your Teeth Whitened?
Teeth whitening should only be done on healthy teeth. This is because teeth whitening treatment uses chemicals that can potentially erode tooth enamel and make gums become more sensitive l. If done properly, the procedure is quite safe, but should not be “abused” or overused, Generally speaking, you should be able to enjoy the results of teeth whitening for at least 2 or 3 years.
Q.6 Should You Get Your Teeth Whitened Professionally?
Professional teeth whitening is the fastest and most effective way to get results. Compared to a take-home whitening kit where visible results can take 2-3 weeks to appear, professional teeth whitening generally takes only one appointment. If done properly, teeth whitening can be done safely and effectively professionally or at home. In both cases, your dentist should carry out an examination beforehand, to make sure that your teeth and gums are perfectly healthy and ready for the procedure. If you choose to do the whitening at home, you have to make sure that you follow instructions properly, to avoid any complications,
