Read our blog on whitening here.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry today. It is a relatively cost effective solution making teeth whitening affordable for many patients.

Want a smile makeover? Teeth whitening can brighten your discoloured (or yellow) teeth which may have become dull as the result of diet, smoking or other lifestyle choices.

LONG LASTING IN COMPARISON TO OFF-THE-SHELF PRODUCTS

Teeth whitening products are either Hydrogen Peroxide (HP) or Carbamide Peroxide (CP) based. The ‘strength’ of these products can vary and some can only be applied by a professional dentist.

Products bought off-the-shelf from retail outlets or online should be questioned for their safety, effectiveness and side effects.

I just want my teeth whitened. Why do I need an assessment?

Our dentists are trained to assess your suitability for teeth whitening. At the assessment, your gum and mouth tissues will be examined for:

  • Gum line
  • Gum health
  • Tooth decay
  • Quality of your tooth enamel
  • Check for veneers, fillings or crowns
  • Degree of teeth discolouration

Whilst some patients feel this is unnecessary, teeth whitening products can be harmful to your oral and overall health should they be administered incorrectly, or if uncertified products are applied. This can lead to:

  • Damage to tooth enamel
  • Mismatched or uneven teeth colour
  • Teeth sensitivity or pain (more so than what is commonly experienced)
  • Irritation or blistering of the gums and mouth tissue
  • Digestive problems

It is extremely important to seek professional advice when using whitening products.

Which whitening treatment should I use?

Greenvale Dental Group offer two options when it comes to creating a whiter, brighter smile:

  1. One hour chair-side whitening
    • Quick results
    • No self-application required as the procedure is administered in our rooms by a dentist
    • Great for patients who are time poor or want instant results
    • For optimum results we recommend using this treatment in conjunction with a DIY take home whitening kit.
  2. DIY take home whitening kit
    • Affordable alternative to one hour chair side whitening or other cosmetic work
    • Custom made re-usable tray which will fit snuggly over your teeth for perfect and even coverage
    • Professional strength whitening gels which can be re-purchased as required

Will I get a “Hollywood Smile” result?

Each patient is different and some cases are more successful than others. Lifestyle, diet and consistency are all vital factors in maintaining a great result. Unlike other cosmetic work, teeth whitening is not a ‘once off’ solution and will need to be re-applied. During your assessment, discuss the results you wish to achieve and we can provide information and options that are best suited to you.
