Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments around—and for a good reason. In a short amount of time, you can boost the look of your smile, safely and affordably. Many people whiten their teeth before a big event, such as a wedding or a job interview. But any time is the right time for reliable, professional teeth whitening.
Patients of Trembath Dental can opt for in-chair and take-home whitening. We use Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed whitening system, and our Mount Gravatt, QLD patients love the results.
Is Professional Teeth Whitening Safe?
We believe that professional teeth whitening is a far better option than over-the-counter teeth whitening products because you are under the care of a dentist. Your dentist is well qualified to assess the health of your teeth to ensure teeth whitening is safe for you. In addition, your dentist can use a higher concentration of peroxide during the whitening process, and this tends to provide better, more predictable whitening results.
Your dentist can also address any underlying dental conditions that might be causing your tooth discolouration.
How Effective Is Professional Teeth Whitening?
The effectivity of teeth whitening depends on the types of stains that have caused your teeth to be discoloured. Teeth whitening works well on extrinsic stains that settle on the outside enamel of the teeth. These stains are usually caused by the foods and beverages we consume, use of tobacco products and the ageing process.
If you are planning to have dental work done the involves restorations, it’s best to have the treatment before having your teeth whitening. Dental prosthetics such as crowns or veneers cannot be whitened.
How Do Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Treatments Differ from Professional Teeth Whitening?
At our Brisbane dental clinic, we can tailor Philips Zoom! Teeth Whitening to your needs. Our patients can feel confident, knowing their teeth whitening is being performed by a skilled dental professional with many years of experience in a controlled, sterile environment. With our take-home whitening kits, we provide customised trays to ensure that the whitening agent is applied evenly.
Over-the-counter teeth whitening products take a one-size-fits-all approach, and they are frequently used incorrectly. Many people report feeling sensitivity after using these whitening treatments.
How Long Can I Expect My Teeth to Stay White?
We usually recommend that patients touch up their smiles over time to keep them their whitest and brightest. It’s also a good idea to avoid those lifestyle habits that may have caused discoloured teeth in the first place.
Limit consumption of coffee, tea, and red wine, as well as staining foods such as berries and curries. When you do indulge, be sure to rinse your mouth with water afterwards.
Eat a healthy diet to promote healthy teeth and limit sugary foods and drinks.
Visit our Mount Gravatt, QLD dental practice every six months for check-ups and cleans.
