Teeth Whitening in Coquitlam
For whiter looking teeth, we discuss three options with our patients. The most inexpensive option is Crest White Strips, which is a completely at-home treatment. The next option is Pola Whitening which combines an office visit to get the impressions for the custom dental trays and then treatments at home by the patient themselves following our instructions. We also offer in-office teeth whitening, more expensive but much faster results than the other two options.
Crest Whitening Strips
People often choose Crest White Strips for teeth whitening. These strips are effective and low cost and available at most pharmacies. We always inform our patients of this option as we like to make sure our patients have as much information as possible when trying to make a decision.
Pola Teeth Whitening
Austin Station Dental offers Pola Whitening as a combination of in-office and at-home whitening. For this whitening system, the dentist will take impressions of the teeth and the patient will get a custom made tray shaped specifically for them. Then the patient will purchase the bleach at our office and then do the treatment at home following the instructions that we provide. This system is only available through your dentist.
Using Pola, whitening can take about 5-14 days and most people will require maintenance treatments about twice per year to keep it up.
Teeth Whitening at the Dentist Office
In-office teeth whitening Coquitlam. This treatment provides instant results and costs about $500.
Tooth whitening products are capable of altering the color of the teeth themselves but people with crowns, root canals, cavities or very dark stains should consult with a dentist to determine if they are a good candidate for teeth whitening.
