Top Signs You're a Good Candidate for a Teeth Whitening Procedure

Almost everyone experiences some tooth discolouration or staining in their lifetime. If you are feeling self-conscious about the colour of your teeth, here are some signs that you could be a good candidate for a professional teeth whitening treatment.

Multiple factors can cause your teeth to become dull and stained, including the overconsumption of certain foods or drinks and the build-up of plaque. The good news is that this discolouration can usually be treated with regular cleanings and whitening remedies. 

Some of the most common teeth whitening products available include: 

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) bleaching strips/gels
  • Tooth whitening toothpaste
  • In-office whitening treatments 

When compared to OTC products, a professional teeth whitening procedure will not only give you faster and more dramatic results, but it will also prevent any unwanted side effects, such as damage to your gums or tooth sensitivity.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Professional Teeth Whitening Procedure? 

Almost everyone will experience some tooth discolouration over their lifetime. Some factors that could lead to a lacklustre smile include: 

  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Taking certain medications
  • Age
  • Overconsumption of certain foods and drinks, such as tea, coffee, or red wine


In most cases, a professional teeth whitening procedure can restore the brightness of your smile and improve your overall appearance. However, it’s important to note that not everyone can have a teeth whitening treatment safely or effectively. 

Before you opt for this dental procedure, it’s important to talk to your holistic dentist to determine if this is a safe choice for you. 

You may not be the ideal candidate for a teeth whitening procedure if you: 

  • Are under the age of 16 
  • Are pregnant or lactating
  • Have periodontal disease, tooth decay, cavities, or exposed roots
  • Have restorations such as fillings, implants, crowns, and dental bridges
  • Have sensitive teeth 
  • Are allergic to teeth bleaching agents, such as peroxide
  • Have unrealistic expectations of the teeth whitening results 

How to Achieve Whiter Teeth if You Have Any Tooth Restorations 

Because crowns, bridges, and other restorations are immune to the effects of tooth whitening, your natural teeth and restored teeth might not match after your whitening treatment. 

Your dentist may be able to develop a strategy to help you get more consistent results, or offer another way to perfect your smile, such as veneers

During a consultation with your holistic dentist, they can assess your oral health, lifestyle, and other factors to help determine if teeth whitening is safe for you. 

How to Maintain a Beautiful and White Smile

If you are not an ideal candidate for teeth whitening, and you are worried about your smile becoming stained or discoloured, there are several things you can do to keep your teeth white, including: 

  • Brushing at least twice a day (for at least two minutes each session) 
  • Visiting your dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and dental cleaning
  • Avoiding foods and drinks such as tea, coffee, pasta sauce, and colas that are known to stain teeth
  • Making lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking 

The team of holistic dentists at our Calgary dental clinic is committed to your oral health. No matter your situation or circumstances, we can help create a treatment plan that will help you achieve a strong, healthy, and beautiful smile.
