Teeth Whitening: Take Home and In-Office Solutions


At Heritage Dental, we offer both take home and in-office teeth whitening to help you achieve your ideal smile so you can grin with radiant confidence!

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a process of correcting discolouration of the teeth via professional-grade solutions. These solutions contain safe and peroxide-based ingredients that are applied directly to the teeth for a specified amount of time that is determined by your individual whitening needs.

There are many factors that can lead to tooth discolouration, including dietary habits and oral conditions. At Heritage Dental, we work with you to identify the issues and determine a whitening solution that will best suit your unique needs.

How do take home and in-office teeth whitening differ?

There are two main types of teeth-whitening treatments offered at Heritage Dental: take home and in-office.

With take home whitening solutions, patients are provided with the proper solution, materials, and instructions for how to apply the teeth whitening. This allows for professional-grade whitening from the comfort of your own home.

These days, there are many different teeth whitening products available for purchase at supermarkets. However, these products often do not offer the same effectiveness of dentist-prescribed take home solutions.

In-office teeth whitening is comparatively the more effective method of the two due to the application being carried out by our dentist in Carleton Place. This is likely the preferable option for severe or deep discolouration that needs professional attention.

Benefits of teeth whitening

  • Dentist-grade whitening solutions are strong enough to combat deep discolouration
  • Take-home solutions are straightforward and easy to apply
  • More predictable results than with store-bought options.
