How does In-Chair Teeth Whitening Work?
By booking in for your professional in-chair teeth whitening session, we can brighten up your smile in as little as 1 hour. Our in-chair treatment option is a great option for those who would like a whiter smile as soon as possible.
During your in-chair whitening session, your Dentist will apply a whitening gel that lifts deep seated stains in your tooth enamel without damaging your teeth or gums. The sessions can range
Our dentists will work with you to tailor the best in-chair treatment solution for you using only the latest advancements. Regardless of the in-chair whitening system you receive, all our practices use only approved, safe and effective treatment systems. We will let you know what kind of results to expect prior to your treatment.
How Does Take Home Teeth-Whitening Work?
Take-home teeth whitening is an easy-to-use treatment that allows you to control the pace and strength of the whitening treatment, depending on your own needs. It’s a fast, effective, and simple solution to achieve a whiter smile in the comfort of your own home with visible results usually only after a couple of weeks.
After consulting with our Dentists, we will create custom whitening trays by taking a mould of your mouth to ensure a perfect fit. Once your trays have been created, your dentist will demonstrate how easy it is to apply your very own whitening treatment. Your dentist will show you how much gel to apply and how to apply it.
By opting for a home whitening kit, your customised mouth trays can be reused later so we can simply prescribe additional whitening gel whenever you need to refresh you smile.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
As an accredited practice we only offer solutions that are approved for use by the Australian Dental Association. We care about your dental health and will carefully check your teeth and gums prior to any whitening treatment to ensure it is the best option for you. Teeth whitening can cause some initial sensitivity, and on rare occasions a tingling sensation in your teeth. If your teeth are already quite sensitive, then we can use a lower strength whitening gel so you can whiten your teeth at a more comfortable and slower pace. During your check-up, we can also assess the kind of results you can expect to achieve prior to commencing treatment.
It is important to know that teeth whitening treatments will not change the colour of any crowns, bridges, veneers, teeth with internal stains or teeth which have darkened due to root canal treatment. There is no need to worry if this is the case for you, as there are plenty of other options that we can use to create a uniformly white and healthy smile for you.
What about off-the-shelf whitening products?
Whitening your teeth with off the shelf products is not the same as getting your teeth whitened with a licensed dentist. Prior to commencing whitening treatment, the ADA (Australian Dental Association) strongly recommends a consultation with your dentist to ensure that it’s right for you.
Off-the-shelf whitening products are currently unregulated. Due to this, many of these products contain dangerously high concentrations of hydrogen or carbamide peroxide leading to higher injury reports of damaged enamel, soft tissue burns and pain.
Unlike a professional whitening kit, many off-the-shelf products do not have customised mouth trays for gel application. This has led to an increase of reports of pain, soft tissue burns and damaged enamel. When whitening is done correctly patients should not experience pain.
At 1300SMILES you can relax knowing that any treatment offered in our practice is safe, effective, and proven.
How Long Will Teeth Whitening Last?
This all depends on the reasons why your teeth became discoloured, and on your lifestyle choices but the results may last for up to two years before you need another treatment. We will give you plenty of advice on how to maintain the results for longer. Avoiding highly coloured foods, quitting smoking, and having a good oral hygiene routine will all help your teeth remain whiter for longer.
