Are you looking for a whiter, brighter smile that restores a youthful attractive appearance to your teeth, if so then professional teeth whitening could be the treatment for you. When discussing whether teeth whitening is a good option for your teeth, we will examine your oral health and discuss your expectations from the treatment. We will also consider some lifestyle factors such as diet as well as coffee and alcohol consumption, which can impact the colour of your teeth. The reason we recommend professional teeth whitening rather than at home kits is because we have access to materials and techniques that you don’t. This way you can get more effective results and aren’t wasting your money on a product that over-promises and underdelivers. At home teeth whitening also doesn’t clean your teeth of excess plaque and doesn’t take into account coloured fillings. Fillings will not whiten like regular teeth and you will end up with an uneven look. Teeth whitening is only a small part of cosmetic dentistry and it is important to consider other treatments that will complete your smile and compliment whitening.
When you visit us for teeth whitening we will first conduct an assessment of oral health, your expectations, and lifestyle. We will then clean your teeth to remove any excess plaque and ensure that your smile not only looks great but also is as healthy as it can be. A gel will then be applied to aid the whitening process and an activation light may be used as well depending on the product. In a short treatment you will work out with an amazing bright smile! Other cosmetic dentistry treatments that you wish to have may need to be performed in separate appointments, however we will consider your treatment holistically and ensure all treatments compliment each other.
Teeth whitening shouldn’t hurt at all, however if discoloration is found to be because of infection or decay we will be unable to perform the treatment. Other concerns will then need to be addressed but we will make sure that no pain is felt and you are comfortable no matter what treatment you are receiving.
It can occasionally lead to dental tooth sensitivity however our dental practitioners can aid in making the experience as comfortable as possible with the most effective outcome for your mouth.
