Teeth Whitening Options

Teeth whitening can offer an obvious improvement to your appearance and is a simple way to enhance your smile. There are a number of different teeth whitening procedures to choose from. Some take longer than others and some involve treatments at home while others only take a single treatment in our clinic. Our team at Smilecare can help you decide on the best treatment for you.

Zoom in-clinic whitening is a very effective in-office, light-activated whitening treatment for discoloured teeth. It offers the quickest result with the most shades change. Most people will experience a change of up to 6-8 shades whiter. 

  • Cost: $650. 
  • Appointment length: 1 hour and 45 minutes. 
  • Contraindications: Pregnant and lactating mothers, those currently treated for a serious illness or disorders (ex. Immune compromised, AIDS, etc.), children under the age of 13 years, light sensitive individuals including those on PUVA (Psoralen + UV radiation) or other photo-chemotherapy, those taking any photo-reactive drugs or substance.


Opalescence in-clinic whitening is chemically activated whitening system that we've always used. Also offers us an instant and bright change, yet seems to be less effective than Zoom. 

  • Cost: $450. 
  • Appointment length: 1 hour and 30 minutes. 


Take home whitening involves two different appointments. The first appointment involves taking impressions of upper and lower teeth and we fabricate custom-fitted trays for patients. Also includes 4 syringes of Opalescence whitening gels. This is the best option for people with hypersensitivity.

  • Cost: $399. 
  • Syringes only: 2 for $65
  • Appointment length: 20-30 minutes each



Opalescence Combo whitening
 includes in-clinic and take home whitening at a discounted rate. Opalescence works the best when used as combo.

  • Cost: $600
  • Appointment length: 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  • Contraindications: Patients with a known sensitivity to peroxides, glycols, acrylates or other resins
