Teeth Whitening in Wheelers Hill

Photo showing before and after of teeth whiteningTeeth whitening is the most commonly requested cosmetic dentistry procedure. It is a safe and proven method to brighten your smile and boost your confidence with a fast, easy and inexpensive solution. While many people purchase over-the-counter whiteners, our professional procedures produce better results, in only a fraction of the time.

Is Whitening for Everyone?

When it comes to teeth whitening, it’s best to begin in our office. We can advise you on whether you are a good candidate for teeth whitening.

People with yellowish teeth typically have better results than those with brownish or greyish hues. Also, whiteners have no effect on tooth-coloured composite fillings or teeth that are bonded.

In-office or At-home Options

The whitening procedure that we do at the practice generally takes about an hour, and the results are immediate. After ensuring that the gums are protected, a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth, and it does all the work!

Here at Waverley Park Dental Care we dispenses take-home kits along with a custom-made mouthpiece. These 10% carbamide peroxide (the bleaching agent) gels are generally used for two weeks in order to obtain the desired results.

Over-the-counter bleaching kits also contain carbamide peroxide, but you won’t get the custom-fitted mouthpiece, and your saliva tends to weaken the effectiveness of the gel. Also, professional treatments typically contain a higher percentage of peroxide and are less abrasive, leading to more effective results without damaging your enamel.

When to Stop

Bleaching can become addictive for some people who never believe that their teeth are white enough. This is dangerous because too much exposure to carbamide peroxide may cause tooth enamel to appear translucent and increase teeth and gum sensitivity and irritation. That’s another reason to have the guidance of our professionals who can help you achieve your ideal brightness.
