A beautiful bright white smile is desirable and affordable with in-chair and custom take-home whitening kits. A professional tooth whitening treatment is the safest and most effective way to brighten your smile as we use premium strength professional whitening products not available to the public.
Teeth whitening is an effective treatment, but it isn’t suitable for everyone, and it is important to have a dental examination before using any whitening product. Your teeth must be relatively strong and healthy, and your gums must be free of disease. We need to treat any dental problems before you can whiten safely and comfortably.
Our dentist can examine your teeth and can determine why they are stained or discoloured. Tooth discolouration can be caused by lifestyle choices such as smoking or eating and drinking highly coloured foods, or it may be due to other factors such as antibiotics like tetracycline, or exposure to excess fluoride while teeth are developing. Knowing how your teeth became stained is important because some stains are intrinsic or internal and respond less readily to ordinary tooth whitening treatments. Also, teeth whitening treatments will not change the colour of existing restorations like dental crowns, bridges and veneers. If you do have restorations, we can advise you on the best way to brighten your teeth evenly.
We use Pola whitening products that are extremely effective and safe. These contain ingredients designed to reduce tooth sensitivity so you can whiten safely and comfortably.
An in-chair teeth whitening treatment will brighten your smile in just a single appointment, and we do not need to use a bleaching light. We protect your gums and lips with a flexible barrier and paint your teeth with the whitening gel. The unique formulation of Pola dissolves and releases active whitening ingredients, lifting deep-seated stains quickly. You will see the difference immediately.
We carefully tailor our take-home kits for each patient, containing custom-made whitening trays to fit precisely over your teeth. You can use the trays for as little as 15minutes a day, or leave them in overnight. We will prescribe the correct strength of whitening gel to whiten your teeth safely and conveniently. The gel contains fluoride, which helps to guard against unwanted tooth sensitivity, and it protects the tooth surfaces.
We will give you precise instructions on how to care for your teeth after whitening treatments, and how frequently you can top up the results.
