Teeth whitening lies at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry and plays a key role in giving you an aesthetically attractive smile. What follows is an overview of professional teeth whitening and some easy-to-follow tips for keeping your teeth shining whiter.
Some patients may tooth or gum sensitivity with professional whitening. It’s best to speak with your dentist to determine your suitability for teeth whitening.
Teeth bleaching is the most popular teeth whitening technique that can be used at home under the supervision of a dentist. It proceeds in the following steps:
A good whitening toothpaste will successfully remove surface stains, however it won’t whiten the structure of the tooth to the same effect as professional teeth whitening.
Healthy Smiles also offer take-home teeth whitening kits. Common whitening gel brands used at our clinic include Philips Zoom Whitening and Pola Advanced Tooth Whitening System.
First, your dentist will assess your eligibility for teeth whitening treatment during an initial oral examination, then you’ll be fitted with a customised whitening tray and gel to apply from home.
The whitening tray can be comfortably worn with ease for a specified time of usually two to four weeks, at the end of which you’ll have a brighter shade of white teeth.
Teeth whitening kits are easy to use and produce faster results than some other whitening technique. Advantageously, take-home whitening kits are cost effective and do not require any artificial bonding or attachments to the teeth.
At our clinic you’ll always find friendly, professional staff that will go out of there way to ensure your visit to the dentist is a happy one!
