Cosmetic Teeth Whitening in Richmond

Cosmetic Teeth Whitening in Richmond


Your smile is one of the very first things people notice when they meet you. Are you proud to show off your pearly whites these days or are you feeling a bit insecure? Kaizen Dental can help you enjoy the healthy, happy grin you deserve! Cosmetic teeth whitening is one of our most popular dentistry requests. Having a more radiant smile can take years off of your appearance! Did you know that our teeth naturally darken with age? The dentin under our enamel can change from bright white to more of a yellowish, greyish tone over time. Many common foods and beverages can additionally lead to discolouration including:


  • White and red wine
  • Coffee and Tea
  • Tobacco Products
  • Nicotine
  • Berries


Surface Staining Vs. Intrinsic Staining


There are numerous over-the-counter teeth whitening products advertised to help you brighten your smile. Surface staining from the above foods or beverages may respond to some of these items relying on bleach or peroxide to lessen discolouration; however, deeper stains affecting the dentin layer will not change. As our dentin darkens naturally with age and our enamel layer decreases, it is only a matter of time before even those with the brightest smiles notice some colour change. Our friendly and warm team at Kaizen Dental in Richmond will assess your smile and determine the root issue to recommend which type of cosmetic teeth whitening option will provide you with the best results.

Maintaining Your Smile After Teeth Whitening


It is essential to avoid staining culprits post teeth whitening and for the next 24-48 hours after your whitening treatment.
