Surrey Teeth Whitening
Let us bleach away ugly yellow stains from red wine, tobacco and coffee
Everyone loves a bright, white smile. But keeping your smile white can be frustrating, because our teeth develop stains and deepen in colour. The enamel becomes more porous as we age, and gradually becomes darker. Acidic foods and drinks — such as diet soda — make the enamel even more porous, and leave it vulnerable to stains. Tobacco, red wine, coffee and tea are the most likely to leave those ugly yellow stains on our teeth.
What’s the solution? Teeth whitening! At 21st Century Dental Practice, we use Zoom!® teeth whitening to remove or reduce stains on your teeth -- giving them a brighter, more attractive appearance.

FAQs — Click question to reveal answer
- Q: Can I get my teeth really white just by using a whitening toothpaste?
- A: The enamel on our teeth darkens with age, and even the most skilled brushing and flossing — and fancy toothpastes or home remedies like baking soda — cannot prevent that from happening entirely. You can do your part to keep your teeth bright by brushing and flossing daily, not using tobacco, and limiting your intake of staining foods and drinks (like red wine, coffee, and tea).
- Q: If I want my teeth to be whiter, should I stop drinking red wine?
- A: Red wine, coffee and tea are notorious for causing ugly yellow stains on your teeth. Diet soda is also a problem, because its acidity breaks down your tooth's enamel — leaving it prone to stains. You don't need to avoid these beverages entirely — just be mindful of what they might do to your smile, and try to limit your intake.
- Q: Are at-home tooth-whitening kits just as good as getting in-office whitening?
- A: The teeth whitening kits available for purchase at 21st Century Dental Centre are of a very high quality, and are superior to a kit you may purchase in a drugstore. But an advantage to our in-office whitening is the powerful lights we use to accelerate the bleaching process.
- Q: Does my dental insurance cover teeth whitening?
- A: Teeth whitening is typically an “extra” that is not covered by insurance, but everyone has different coverage. We would be happy to help you understand your available coverage, so please ask us at your next appointment.
