At Norwood Dental Centre in St. Boniface, we offer both in-office laser bleaching and take-home teeth whitening solutions. Nothing makes us happier than seeing our patients light up the room with their whiter smile.

Adults with discoloured teeth that are the result of environmental factors like food, drink, or smoking are usually candidates for teeth whitening. That said, only your dentist can tell you if teeth whitening is right for you, so please contact us to book an appointment to find out for sure.

No, teeth whitening will only work on your natural teeth. Ideally, any restorations should be added after your teeth have been whitened to match the new, lighter shade. To this end, your dentist may develop a full mouth dental restoration plan.
