Teeth Whitening

Are you unsatisfied with the colour of your teeth?

Stains occur for many reasons, including smoking or tobacco use. Your teeth can also become stained by regularly eating certain foods and beverages. Plus, teeth naturally start to darken as you age.

Choosing a professional whitening treatmentcan reverse the effects of tooth staining for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

There are many whitening treatments readily available for purchase; however, professional whitening is generally safer and more effective. Applicator trays in chemist shop kits are intended to be “one size fits all” which can result in them fitting uncomfortably in your mouth since they aren’t designed specifically for your teeth. Whitening gels included with this type of product can sometimes be too abrasive or can leak because of ill-fitting trays, leading to gum and other soft tissue irritation. 

For these reasons, you may want to choose professional whitening instead. The whitening service provided by your dentist may consist of two phases – an in-office whitening session and a customised at-home kit and care plan.

In-Chair Professional Whitening

Your dentist will choose whitening gel in the appropriate strength for your needs while accounting for factors like your level of sensitivity and your whitening goals. This gel is typically applied using custom-made applicator trays for maximum comfort and also to protect the tissues in your mouth from becoming irritated by the whitening gel. Teeth can be lightened dramatically in only one session.

ZOOM! Laser Teeth Whitening

As one of the most trusted treatments offered by laser teeth whitening professionals, ZOOM! Teeth Whitening is the best solution available. The procedure is the quickest, safest and most effective option to getting that brighter and whiter smile you’ve been dreaming about.

Complete in just one hour, the whole process is very simple. All you need to do is sit back and relax while our professional teeth whitening experts complete the treatment.
 
To ensure your teeth remain whiter for longer, we’ll provide you with a take-home top-up tray.

What is the treatment process?

Prior to whitening, your dentist will take some moulds of your teeth to fabricate some trays for you as part of your take home kit. Your dentist will then place a few things in your mouth to carefully protect your gums, lips and cheeks.

The whitening works through a hydrogen peroxide gel which breaks down the stains on your teeth; a process accelerated by the Philips Zoom! White Speed Whitening LED Accelerator light. Through this process of 3-4 15 minute cycles, your teeth will be visibly whiter (up to 8 shades) within a single day.

At-Home Whitening

If you prefer to whiten your teeth at your own convenience, your dentist may provide you with a custom at-home whitening kit. Your applicator trays will be customised just for you, and the strength of the whitening gel will be chosen to meet your needs. You will be given specific instructions on how to use it safely.

After this kind of whitening treatment, you will typically be asked to schedule a follow-up visit at our clinic to monitor your progress.
