Teeth Whitening Procedures in Hamilton and Stoney Creek
At Gateshead Dental, we offer two procedures you can choose between to whiten your teeth.
Custom Whitening Tray
Custom-made acrylic trays are fitted to your upper and lower teeth. You can take the trays with you and apply them from the comfort of your own home. The trays can be used daily with a whitening gel for two-to-four weeks.
This is one of the most effective and safest teeth whitening treatments around. The custom trays are made to fit your mouth and ensure the whitening gel doesn’t leak into your gums and cause irritation.
This method comes packaged with stock trays prefilled with teeth whitening gel. While not as long lasting as the custom tray, the procedure can give good results to people whose teeth don’t have a high degree of discolouration. The other advantage to this system is that it is less expensive and it’s still more effective than the trays you can buy at the store.

Types of Teeth Discolouration
There are three main types of teeth discolouration:
This happens when the enamel (the outer part of the tooth) is stained. This could be caused by foods, certain drinks, and smoking.
This happens when the dentin (the inner part of the tooth) darkens. This could be caused by anything from exposure to too much fluoride as a child, to using tetracycline antibiotics before the age of eight, to the mother using these antibiotics in the second half of the pregnancy.
It could also happen if you fell when you were a kid and hurt your tooth in a way that affected its development. Some people are even born with a rare condition known as dentinogenesis imperfecta, which causes gray, purple, or amber discolouration.
In some cases, age can yellow your teeth. The enamel grows thinner with time, allowing the dentin to show.
