Stained teeth are a natural part of ageing, even if you don’t use tobacco, drink coffee or sip red wine. Some of the most colourful and healthy foods leave deposits on teeth that collect over time, making teeth look dingy and dull.
Fortunately, no matter your lifestyle choices, a white smile is possible and is celebrated as one of the most conservative and affordable options available from modern dentistry. We offer both in-chair and take-home teeth whitening in our Taringa dental office.
In-Chair Teeth Whitening
Did your family or class reunion sneak up on you and you want to improve your smile fast? In-chair teeth whitening may be the best choice for you and takes only about an hour. Our team will apply professional-strength teeth whitening gel to the teeth while protecting the gums.
You can speak with your dental hygienist or Dr Paul Rollason at your next check-up and clean. Immediately following a dental clean is the best time to whiten your teeth.
You can continue the process at home with your take-home custom teeth whitening trays. Combining both of our professional whitening systems will deliver the most dazzling results.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
For our take-home whitening system, we begin by taking moulds of the teeth to create trays that will hold the whitening gel in place, keeping it away from your gums. You can use your whitening gel, placing a small dot of gel in each tooth receptacle, and wear your trays for about one hour each day for two weeks.
You should keep your trays clean and store them away because you can use them to brighten your teeth anytime you need a smile boost.
What about Store-Bought Teeth Bleaching?
Many of the products available for sale in salons, spas and shops can remove some surface stains from teeth, but they usually lack the power of professional teeth whitening kits. Many toothpaste brands contain abrasives, which can damage the protective enamel protecting your teeth.
It’s a good idea to discuss your options with your Taringa cosmetic dentist so that you can make an educated choice for your dental health and appearance.
What Are the Risks of Teeth Whitening?
For patients with good oral health, teeth whitening products recommended by your dentist are generally safe. The most common side effect is teeth sensitivity. You can reduce sensitivity by following the instructions provided by Absolute Dental Care precisely. Using more gel will not give you brighter results but can cause your gums and teeth to feel sensitive.
