Teeth Whitening Perth

A healthy, radiant smile is a great way to feel more confident.
Many of our patients opt for professional teeth whitening to achieve a brighter, whiter smile.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a popular treatment used to enhance the colour of the teeth.

Depending on the shade of your teeth, the condition of your teeth and your goals, your dentist will recommend the best whitening option for you: take home or in-office whitening.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take Home Teeth Whitening Kits

Take-home whitening treatments allow patients to brighten teeth at home using custom-made trays, dental-grade whitening gel, and clear, easy-to-follow instructions.

The take-home teeth whitening kits have a high concentration of carbide or hydrogen peroxide. They are given to patients by dentists for a whiter smile. Custom-made trays are placed on the teeth to shield them from the bleaching solution.

The results are visible after one week or two weeks.

In Chair Teeth Whitening

Professional whitening involves the application of dental-grade whitening gel to the teeth which gets activated by a special LED light.

These products break down stains in your teeth to whiten them. The whitening process happens when the stain breaks into tiny pieces that let more light pass through the teeth. In-house procedures are more effective because they remove intrinsic stains.

In-chair whitening is considered the fastest, most effective way to brighten teeth. It typically offers results – sometimes quite dramatic – as soon as the 1 to the 2-hour procedure is finished.

Advantages and Disadvantages

Does Teeth Whitening Cause Permanent Sensitivity?

Sensitivity from tooth whitening is temporary and usually goes away within one to two days of completing the procedure. At this point, the patient will return to their previous state of sensitivity.

The Removal of Discoloured Teeth is an Advantage of Teeth Whitening

It is everyone’s desire to have a gleaming, bright smile. However, this desire can be difficult to achieve because many people have stained or discoloured teeth. Teeth whitening is a treatment that can lighten teeth and remove discolourations.

What Does Teeth Whitening Remove?

Tooth enamel is constantly exposed to everything we eat or drink and can become stained over time. Fortunately, extrinsic stains are on the surface of the teeth and can be easily treated with professional teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening can safely and quickly eliminate stains from highly pigmented foods and beverages, such as coffee, red wine, tea, and chocolate. Teeth whitening can also remove tobacco stains and bring a healthy brightness back to your teeth.

Teeth whitening cannot correct discolouration due to yellowing from ageing and also does not work for artificial crowns, gold caps on teeth, and dental veneers.

    FAQs

    The majority of patients are good candidates for teeth whitening, but each situation is unique. A consultation is the only way to know for certain if professional teeth whitening is suitable for you.

    Results from professional teeth whitening typically last between six months and two years. To best preserve results, consider avoiding the following:

    • Smoking
    • Black tea
    • Coffee
    • Red wine

    Many studies have determined that teeth whitening is safe and does not cause permanent damage to the tooth enamel or other tooth structures.

    Although the bond strength between enamel and composite restorations may temporarily be reduced after teeth whitening, the procedure usually has little to no effect on restorative materials. During your consultation, restorative materials will be evaluated to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure.

    Products using hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide, are considered safe as long as they are not overused for months or years.

    Whitening toothpaste is usually only capable of cleaning surface stains. For lasting, dramatic results, professional whitening is the most effective option. Whitening toothpaste can be a great way to help maintain your professional whitening results.
