Teeth Whitening

Our smile is one of the key ways that we greet the world. But teeth can yellow over time with age, and lifestyle choices. Tooth whitening is a simple, non-invasive method to whiten yellowed teeth and brighten your smile.

The Benefits

Tooth whitening can dramatically improve your smile with no major side effects. It is suitable for almost all patients, and does no harm to the teeth under treatment. Successful whitening can reduce the need for more invasive cosmetic procedures such as veneers.

The Process

At our clinic, there are three types of whitening available. The in-office or chairside whitening, and take-home whitening both treat all the teeth in the aesthetic zone. Internal whitening treats individual teeth which have previously become discoloured after root canal treatment, and helps to reduce the need for crowning or veneering the tooth.

The results from take-home whitening, and chair-side whitening are similar. The main difference is the time it takes, take-home whitening is a slower process that may take a few weeks, whereas chairside whitening usually shows results after 60-90 minutes of treatment. Our dentist will work with you to discover which treatment or combination of treatments is right for you.

The process for take-home whitening is to take an accurate record of the initial shade of your teeth. Customised whitening trays will be made for your teeth, and you will be shown how to place the home whitening gel within the trays. Instructions will be given to avoid trauma to the gums and soft tissues, and on sensitivity management. Our clinic will monitor your progress with a review after a few weeks, and our dentist and staff are always available if you have any questions.

In-office whitening at our clinic is carried out by the dentist. The single visit treatment takes between 60 – 90 minutes to complete.

The system used at our clinic utilises a light at the blue wavelength to activate the whitening gel. Before applying the gel, your cheeks and gums are protected. The lamp is then positioned and the first of four 15 minute sessions begins. During the sessions you can relax or listen to music. In between each session the activated whitening gel is removed, and fresh whitening gel applied.

Some sensitivity may be experience during and after the treatment. We can help you to manage this with pre-whitening desensitising treatments, and analgesics.

The last treatment to be mentioned is the internal whitening which is very effective for discoloured root canal treated teeth. The access previously used to carry out the root canal is reopened. Debris from the pulp chamber is cleared, and any excess filling material is removed. The whitening gel is then placed directly in the cavity, and the whole thing is re-sealed. This process may need to be repeated a few times depending on the depth of discolouration.

The Cost

The fees will vary depending upon the treatment or combination of treatments are chosen. We would encourage you to meet with our dentist for a consultation, and discussion of your particular needs and treatment costs.
