Teeth Whitening Calgary

Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to brighten your smile. Lifestyle and the aging process can yellow and darken teeth. Drinking coffee, tea, red wine, and cola drinks or smoking are significant contributors to teeth discoloration. Whitening agents work by breaking up the stains buried in the microscopic cracks of the enamel.

There are many whitening agents on the market today. The table below lists some of the products, average treatment times, and typical results.
