Your teeth darken over time. Changes in the colour of your teeth can be caused by such factors as the food and beverages consumed (like coffee, tea and soda). Other known factors for discolouration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene.
Restoring your natural white smile is a priority for our team
Using the latest in bleaching technology, The Phillips Zoom System, we can provide a variety of safe options for creating a beautiful “bright” smile. Tooth whitening services are growing in popularity, and it’s one of the most requested services offered by our practice. Everyone sees the growing consumer market focused on whiter teeth. The reality is that over-the-counter, “too good to be true” solutions typically don’t work.
To ensure maximum results, our clinical staff closely monitors our whitening system. We are trained professionals using industry-approved methods.
Our goal is to meet the needs of every patient, and every patient’s needs are different. One of the options we offer is in-house tooth whitening. At the initial appointment the dentist will explain the procedure and any potential risks. A mould will also be taken so that we can make customised trays to fit your teeth, and you can top up the bleaching at home. When you come for the bleaching we will make you comfortable in the chair and the dentist will put a protective coating around your teeth to cover your gums. The soft tissues will also be covered so the bleach only works on your teeth. The bleach solution will be applied to the teeth before a curing light is used to activate it. The activation process will take approximately an hour. Your teeth can go up to 8 shades whiter depending on the shade they were before. This is our most popular cosmetic service.
If you would prefer to do the bleaching yourself at home, we will make customised trays to hold the bleaching solution, based on an impression of your teeth. After wearing the tray for a few hours each night for about two weeks, you should see a “whiter” smile.
