It's natural for our teeth to darken as we age! They can become stained and discoloured, both inside the tooth and on the surface. Many factors can cause the discolouration of your teeth, including:
Having your teeth professionally whitened can be a safe and effective way to help whiten and brighten your smile. The process is simple, non-invasive, and can noticeably alter the colour of your natural tooth by targeting and removing stains.
The team at Marquis Dental can help you determine if whitening your teeth is right for you.
We want to make it easier for you to get a whiter, brighter smile. That's why we offer 2 treatment options – an at-home personalized treatment or having your teeth professionally whitened in our office. Either way, you'll be on your way to your new smile!
Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. If you have concerns about the appearance of your smile, teeth whitening can boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Additionally, taking care of your oral health can have an impact on your overall health and well-being. A whiter, brighter smile can help motivate you to keep it that way by taking more care with your oral hygiene routine.

Read the answers to our most frequently asked questions about teeth whitening at Marquis Dental Group.
Whitening is not permanent. Beverages such as coffee and wine, and certain foods, such as those that contain 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 just desire a touch-up after one year or so.
Dental insurance does not typically cover the cost of teeth whitening.
One short-term side effect of teeth whitening may be sensitivity. 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.
Typically, brown, and yellow-coloured stains respond best to teeth whitening treatments. 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.
Unfortunately not. Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth and will not work on existing dental restorations such as 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.
When used under the supervision of a qualified dentist, teeth whitening is very 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.
