Professional teeth whitening – looking good, feeling great

Professional teeth whitening – looking good, feeling great

It has been demonstrated that a bright smile influences perceptions and can affect social relationships. It’s no wonder that some statistics show that over 80% of people would like to have whiter teeth. Professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic services in the world because it helps us to look good and feel great.

Professional teeth whitening is the simplest and most comfortable way to regain the shine of your teeth in a single visit to the dentist’s office. At our Victoria dental clinic, we use the latest technology and top-quality materials to bring out the beauty of a dazzling smile.

What are the causes that lead to a change in tooth colour?

Few people have a completely white smile naturally. With age, teeth are subject to external factors that lead to yellowing or staining:

  • foods and beverages, such as berries, wine and coffee
  • habits such as smoking
  • plaque and tartar build up
  • long term treatments with antibiotics
  • dental trauma – cracks in the enamel that favour the formation of stains on the surface of the tooth.

Stains can be removed with a professional dental whitening session in the dentist’s office. One session takes about 2 hours, depending on the treatment chosen. The effects can last up to 2 years, depending on the maintenance habits of the patient. Teeth whitening can be repeated without affecting the health of the teeth in 2 or 3 years. Before the procedure, the teeth must be clean and healthy, so we recommend a professional polishing and scaling.

The winter season is the perfect time to treat yourself to a professional teeth whitening treatment in Victoria, BC. Your teeth will shine and you will smile confidently over the holidays.

Cosmetic Dentistry In Victoria, BC – Top Treatments To Help You Smile With Confidence

Cosmetic Dentistry In Victoria, BC – Top Treatments To Help You Smile With Confidence

Once only for the stars in Hollywood, cosmetic dentistry* in Victoria, BC is now an attainable dream for all.

At Pacifica Dental, we can fix many smile concerns with proven techniques designed to restore the beauty and function of your smile.

All of our cosmetic dental treatments start with a smile analysis. It’s actually something you already do every time you look in the mirror or check out a selfie. If there’s anything about your smile that you’re not 100% happy with, you’ll notice it, especially if you’re like half of all North Americans… unhappy with at least one aspect of your smile.

For every unique smile – including yours – we have many ways that make the incredible difference between hiding a smile and using it with confidence. Let’s talk about what we could do for you… let’s get you smiling! Our cosmetic dentistry in Victoria, BC will take a personalized approach to helping you get the smile you want.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments. That’s because very quickly, your smile can go from drab to dynamic. Teeth whitening can lighten your teeth up to 8 shades and, depending on how well you maintain your smile and avoid teeth staining foods, drinks, and some lifestyle choices, can last for months. Touch ups are easy and fast.

Tooth-Coloured Fillings

Do you feel completely cofortable laughing out loud? Are you lacking smile confidence because you don’t like the look of those silver-colored fillings? Talk to us about it. We will check the longevity of them (they don’t last forever), and when they’re ready for an update, let’s upgrade! Beautiful white-colored fillings that match your teeth can make a real transformation!

Tooth-Coloured Bonding

Using the same tooth-coloured bonding material that we use to fill cavities, we can hide minor smile flaws in in just one appointment! Whether you have a chip, crack, dark staining, teeth that are slightly crooked, or teeth that have small gaps between them, bonding may be the solution that will make you smile more.

Porcelain Veneers

A more permanent solution to aesthetic smile concerns, porcelain veneers cover a variety of smile flaws like chips, cracks, minor misalignments, or severe and stubborn stains. A thin custom-made tooth-shaped shell is placed onto your prepared tooth, completely hiding what’s underneath. The porcelain is strong and effectively resists staining.

All-Porcelain Crowns

Crowns are used to support a tooth that has been damaged or compromised either by decay, injury, or root canal therapy. But because of their translucent properties, light reflects just like a natural enamel to give us beautiful esthetic results, so many people are requesting them to enhance their smiles cosmetically. In addition to a tooth that is “just like new,” you’ll enjoy restored function or even a more esthetically pleasing smile.


If you want a straight smile but don’t want to wear metal braces, SureSmile may be your perfect choice. With SureSmile, a series of clear computer-calibrated aligners worn daily straighten teeth over time. While we regularly monitor your progress, you do your own “adjustments” by simply progressing to the next aligner in the series on the right schedule for your unique needs. Also, because the aligners are removable, you don’t have dietary restrictions during treatment as you would with band and bracket braces. Brushing and flossing is also easier. And the best part? They’re nearly invisible so no one will know you’re wearing them!

Now, go look in the mirror. Do you want to improve your personal smile analysis? We can help you love your smile! Call us today!

Yours in excellent dental health,
