Get the smile of your dreams!

Are your teeth yellow or grayish and give you complexes when you smile? Teeth whitening can be a great solution for you! Quick and inexpensive, this simple, minimally invasive and safe treatment will restore your teeth to their radiance.

Why do our teeth tarnish?
Several factors contribute to color our teeth. Among the most frequent:

  • genetic;

  • medication;

  • certain foods such as tea or coffee;

  • tobacco consumption;

  • age.

The enamel of the tooth is made up of mineral prisms joined together by an organic material. Over the years, this fixes the dyes and pigments, gradually causing the teeth to lose their whiteness. Teeth whitening products can remove these stains to give you a beautiful smile.

How does home tooth whitening work?

Our dental clinic offers you whitening at home, in the comfort of your own home. From start to finish, the treatment is done under the supervision of your dentist, in a completely safe manner. This gives you optimal results under ideal conditions. 

Beforehand: check the health of your teeth

Before proceeding with the treatment, your dentist will perform a rigorous clinical examination of your teeth. If you need dental care, you will need to do it before moving on to whitening.

Your dentist will also perform scaling and polishing of your teeth in order to remove any extrinsic stains and properly expose the dental surfaces to whitening products. Composite repairs or dental crowns retain their original color. Most often, they will therefore have to be replaced in order to harmonize the color of your teeth.

Whitening: a simple treatment for excellent results

The dentist or dental hygienist takes impressions of your dental arches in order to make custom-made, thin, durable and comfortable aligners. These will accommodate the whitening agent that will act on your teeth. 
You go home with the aligners, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide syringes, as well as valuable instructions.
You should wear your aligners for at least an hour a day. The duration of treatment can be from seven to ten days depending on your situation. 
Before leaving home, we give you precise advice and record the starting shade of your teeth in order to compare it with that of the final result.

The benefits of teeth whitening at home

Home teeth whitening has several advantages:

Customized to your teeth, the aligners optimize the contact between your teeth and the whitening agents in order to obtain better results.
You can choose to do the treatment during the day or when you sleep.
Once the treatment is finished, you keep your aligners for any retouching in the future.

This bleaching technique has been proven and allows to obtain remarkable and lasting results.

Avoid during bleaching and after treatment

During the period when you are whitening your teeth, you should avoid foods that color them such as tea, coffee, red wine, tomato sauce, etc. Of course, smoking is not recommended. 

Throughout the process, you will be delighted to see the color of your teeth lighten day by day, and you will find the urge to smile again.

After treatment

A few good gestures are required to maintain a radiant smile:  

  • Maintain impeccable dental hygiene by brushing your teeth morning and night.

  • Floss regularly between teeth.  

  • Regularly visit our dental center.

In order to maintain the results obtained for a long time, we advise you to keep your aligners after the initial treatment. You will be able to do touch-ups a few times a year to keep your teeth white.


Home whitening is safe for the enamel and allows you to find a beautiful smile for several years. As with any treatment, some people respond very well, others not. If you want to get an even whiter smile, and at the same time correct the imperfections of your teeth, your dentist may suggest that you combine tooth whitening with the installation of porcelain veneers .
