Teeth Whitening

Tooth staining and discolouration is a common occurrence. Things like medication, tea, coffee, and energy drinks, along with factors such as genetics and lifestyle, can cause stains on your teeth. However, you can remove these stains and discolouration through teeth whitening and lighten your teeth’s enamel. Enjoy the many benefits that come with a white, bright smile by opting for teeth whitening in Coorparoo.

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure that lightens your teeth’s enamel and removes tooth discolouration and stains. Through the procedure, you can achieve whiter teeth and a brighter smile.

The treatment has grown in popularity in the last few years, with more people looking to reap some of the many benefits it promises to offer. Some of these benefits include improved self-image, self-confidence, and even an improved quality of life.

Types of Teeth Whitening Treatments

There are various types of teeth whitening treatments that we offer in our dental practice here in Coorparoo. Patients could get a take-home kit, which we can provide you with at an appointment. One of our dentists will take an impression of your teeth and make a custom-moulded tray. They will also take you through how to use the kit.

The most popular teeth whitening method, however, is in-chair whitening. Here, one of our dentists professionally administers the treatment in our dental clinic. The treatment gives you instant results.

Philips Zoom Whitening

Zoom is a new teeth whitening technology made by Philips. It is a bleaching procedure that we use to lighten the discolouration of the enamel on your teeth. It is quick, has a lasting effect, and can even protect your teeth’s surface, making it resistant to discolourations.
The gel used contains hydrogen peroxide, which, when broken down, penetrates the enamel and the dentin and bleaches the stains from inside. A complete in-chair treatment usually takes four sessions, with each session lasting about 15 minutes.
However, if you are interested in the treatment, you will first need to come in for a brief consultation to enable us to assess your suitability. You might need a professional clean and scale before the dental treatment to ensure the best possible outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure designed to lighten the colour of your teeth and remove stains and discoloration. It can be performed in a dental office using professional-grade bleaching agents for immediate results, or at home with custom-fitted trays and whitening gel provided by your dentist, or with over-the-counter products.

Yes, when performed under the supervision of a dentist, teeth whitening is a safe procedure. Professional whitening products are designed to minimise tooth sensitivity and protect gum tissue while effectively lightening the colour of your teeth. It’s important to follow your dentist’s instructions and recommendations to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.

The duration of teeth whitening results can vary depending on individual habits and lifestyle choices. Generally, the effects can last from several months up to three years. Avoiding staining agents like tobacco, coffee, tea, and red wine can help prolong the results. Regular dental cleanings and touch-up treatments can also maintain the whiteness of your teeth over time.

While most adults can benefit from teeth whitening, it may not be suitable for everyone. Teeth whitening is most effective on natural tooth enamel and may not work on dental restorations like crowns, veneers, or fillings. Additionally, pregnant women, individuals with gum disease, worn enamel, cavities, or highly sensitive teeth should consult their dentist to determine if teeth whitening is appropriate.

Tooth discoloration can be caused by a variety of factors, including aging, consumption of staining substances (coffee, tea, wine, tobacco), medications (certain antibiotics can cause discoloration), excessive fluoride during tooth development, and trauma to the teeth. Professional teeth whitening can address most surface stains but may not correct discoloration resulting from certain medications or dental injuries.

Professional teeth whitening offered by dentists uses stronger bleaching agents and customised treatments to provide faster and more effective results compared to over-the-counter products. Professional treatments also include protective measures to reduce tooth sensitivity and protect the gums. Over-the-counter products, while more affordable, typically offer a one-size-fits-all solution and may require longer treatment times to achieve noticeable results.
