Whether it is for an important job interview, a special event, or just because you deserve a treat, teeth whitening is frequently the ideal and highly cost-effective solution.

Teeth whitening is an extremely popular procedure, and a beautiful bright smile automatically conveys the impression of youthfulness. It can be the perfect pick-me-up when you want to spoil yourself. However, it is crucial to ensure you whiten safely which is why it is best to choose a professional teeth whitening treatment. This will provide you with the safest and most effective outcome, protecting your dental health while ensuring you benefit from a beautiful white smile.

Ensuring Teeth Whitening is Comfortable, Safe and Successful

In keeping with our holistic approach to dentistry, here at Bel Canto, we always place your oral health first and will ensure every treatment recommended is appropriate. Before we whiten your teeth, our dentist Dr. Mackie will need to check your dental health because any existing dental problems must be treated before you can safely whiten. If you were to whiten your teeth before addressing these problems, it could feel uncomfortable at best and may worsen these issues. Lots of people have sensitive teeth, and the beauty of a professional tooth whitening treatment is that it will be customized for you and is adjusted to ensure you feel comfortable during your treatment.

Another thing to consider is how well teeth whitening will meet your needs. Your teeth are unique and will whiten slightly differently to everyone else.

One thing we must determine is if you have any existing restorations such as crowns, bridges, white fillings or veneers to ensure you receive an evenly whitened smile. Any restorations will not change colour during your treatment. Having the professional insight of your dental team is another reason why getting your teeth whitened professionally is so much better than trying to do it yourself. Once we are happy that teeth whitening is right for you, we can discuss how you would prefer to whiten.

Bel Canto Only Uses Premium Quality Teeth Whitening Products

All our products are professional grade and are premium quality and solutions include Philips Zoom Whitening, KöR, and Opalescence. Choose to whiten in our comfortable dental office, or if you prefer, we can supply a whitening kit for use in the privacy of your own home.


Philips Zoom is one of the best-known whitening brands in the world, providing a reliable and safe outcome in as little as a single visit, but you can use this system to whiten at home, without the need for any lights or lasers. Philips Zoom makes custom take-home whitening kits, suitable for use during the day or overnight. These must be used for a couple of weeks to achieve optimum results.


KöR is another whitening system for use in-office or at home and again includes a night or day kit. This system can even work effectively on dental fluorosis stains, caused by exposure to excess fluoride during childhood, or on tetracycline staining. Both these solutions use custom-fitted whitening trays made to fit precisely over your own teeth.


Opalescence is a professional whitening system using prefilled, disposable trays for maximum convenience and which need only be worn for fifteen to twenty minutes each day. The prefilled trays comfortably adapt to your mouth as they warm up. The beauty of Opalescence is that it provides you with professional quality products that are far more effective and much safer than anything you can buy over-the-counter, but which are perfect for the cost-conscious user.

Caring for Your Beautiful White Smile

Once your teeth are whitened, we are sure you will want to maintain your beautiful bright smile for as long as possible. Our dental team can provide lots of useful advice on how to care for your teeth after treatment, and of course, you can safely top up the results periodically.

    It really helped to read the part of your article that talked about how teeth whitening is customized for each patient. My teeth are a lot more sensitive than other people’s teeth, so I was worried that this kind of procedure wouldn’t work for me. Reading your article has definitely given me more confidence in it, so I’ll look for a dentist in the area that can do this procedure for me right away.
