Teeth Whitening in Courtenay

Whitening of teeth is perhaps the most common form of cosmetic dentistry. Many people want a whiter, brighter smile. If you require teeth whitening services in Courtenay, trust Riverway Dental. A whitening treatment removes stains that show up on your teeth over time. These stains can be caused by various substances you interact with on a daily basis including:

  • Foods like berries

  • Drinks such as pop, coffee and tea

  • Smoking

While over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at many locations, professional teeth whitening is the safest option as it is less harmful to your teeth and gums.

Types of Teeth Whitening

There are several different types of professional teeth whitening: in-office and out-of-office. Both types offer their own benefits in terms of how long they take and how white your teeth will be after.


In-office treatments offer quick results that will have you smiling! During this procedure, a safe bleaching solution will be applied to your teeth and activated with a high intensity light. After about an hour, your teeth will have the glamourous white glow you’ve been seeking, and correct your tooth discolouration.


Out-of-office methods take longer but offer the convenience and comfort of being at home. A custom whitening tray using a mould of your teeth will be created. You will then be given a whitening gel that fills the tray. You will wear the tray 3-4 hours a day for one to two weeks. At the end of this time, you will notice considerable whitening.


Following either treatment, you could experience tooth and gum sensitivity for a few days. If the sensitivity persists, contact your dentist.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

While they have their disparities, both methods of teeth whitening offer the same great benefits of:

  • Correcting brown, yellow and spotted tooth stains

  • Working on patients of any age

  • Being a nearly permanent, and cost effective, solution to restore the brightness of your smile

Friendly and Professional

“Every time I've been to the office, I've been met with friendly and professional staff. I had IV sedation with Dr. Luksay and everything went smoothly. Dr. Luksay followed up with me the next day to make sure everything was okay. I then came back for a bite adjustment at no charge. Thank you for your great work and professionalism.”

Very Diligent Team

“Dr. Luksay and his staff get high marks from me for being diligent regarding patient well-being. During a routine examination, he and his assistant noticed a growth under my tongue. I had noticed it before for some time but did not give it much attention. He said it looked like it could be an obstructed salivary gland and I should get it checked out. I immediately booked an appointment with my family doctor and was eventually referred to a specialist who ordered a biopsy. There was some concern expressed (it could be a tumor) and I experienced several weeks of anxiety awaiting the results, which took longer than expected. But in the end the growth was removed and I was given a clean bill of health. Thank you Dr. Luksay and staff for taking such good care of me.”

Accommodating and Caring

“Over the past two years I had to have some dental work done and this dental office is the best one I've ever been to. The front-end staff has been accommodating and very caring. They truly go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. This past week Laurie helped me coordinate a last minute dental procedure and even called the next day to check up on me. I also trust Dr. Luksay to make the right dental decisions for me and he is also very attentive and professional. Highly recommend this dental office.”
