Everybody wants to have a brighter and whiter smile, and professional teeth whitening is the best way to achieve it.
Teeth whitening is the most accessible cosmetic dentistry option for almost every patient and is safe and effective.
Rather than masking discolouration, it brings out the natural whiteness in your teeth by neutralising pigments and stains.
We provide a broad range of whitening treatments to suit all budgets and lifestyles. Contact us at Dental Cube Kellyville Ridge to find out more!
Advantages of Teeth Whitening
The most common advantage of teeth whitening is an enhanced, whiter, and brighter smile, which improves your appearance.
However, in addition to the aesthetic advantages with teeth whitening, other benefits include:
- Increased self-esteem and confidence
- Kills bacteria that may cause gum disease and/or tooth decay
- Boosts your self-esteem
Causes of Teeth Discolouration
Your tooth enamel can also be stained by food and beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, and blackcurrant. Smoking and using other tobacco products can also stain teeth.
Calculus or tartar can also affect the shade of your teeth. Some people have discolouration under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or by tiny cracks in the teeth into which stains settle.
Teeth Whitening Options
In-Office Tooth Whitening
Teeth whitening performed by your dentist can quickly achieve brighter teeth. The bleaching solution used in-office is usually much stronger than at-home whitening kits.
Also, heat, curing light, or a combination of the two is used to speed up and intensify the whitening process.
The most dramatic results – teeth get up to eight shades lighter – usually take several 30- to 60-minute visits. Some dentists use techniques that can be finished in just one 2-hour appointment.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Options
There are several options for bleaching teeth at home; the most common include:
Teeth whitening strips and gels. Applied to the teeth by a brush or a thin strip, these peroxide-based teeth whitening products are usually applied one or two times a day for at least two weeks. Results may last up to four (or more!) months.
Tray-based teeth whitening systems. With this teeth whitening option, a mouthguard-like tray is filled with a peroxide-based gel or paste and placed over the teeth for several hours a day for up to four weeks.
You can purchase tray-based tooth whitening systems over-the-counter or have one custom-fitted by your dentist.
Teeth whitening toothpastes. Because they’re mildly abrasive, every toothpaste helps remove stains from teeth.
Whitening toothpastes, however, also contain polishing agents that help scrub stains from teeth without the aid of a whitening agent.
Teeth whitening toothpastes are relatively inexpensive and brighten teeth up to one shade.
Some teeth whitening toothpastes contain peroxides, but they aren’t left on the teeth long enough to have a whitening benefit.
