Teeth Whitening in MaroubraIs Teeth Whitening Safe?

Your professional teeth whitening treatment with us here at Dental Serenity Maroubra will be very safe. Before we recommend this treatment, our dentist will want to carefully examine your teeth and gums. This is to make sure you do not have any signs of dental diseases, for example tooth decay or gum disease. Any dental problems must be treated before you can safely whiten your teeth and we will not provide this treatment if there is any chance it could harm your dental health.

How Long Will the Results of Teeth Whitening Last?

Everybody will find their teeth whiten slightly differently and some people will enjoy the results for longer than others. It all depends on the reasons why your teeth discoloured and your present lifestyle habits. If you prefer to drink red wine and lots of tea and coffee then your teeth will become stained more quickly. The same can be true for someone with a diet high in acidic foods as higher acidity levels makes it easier for staining foods to penetrate the tooth enamel. If you smoke then the nicotine will stain teeth more quickly than in a non-smoker. If you wish to make the results last as long as possible, then you might wish to change some of your lifestyle habits. You may also safely re-whiten your teeth and our dentist can advise you on how frequently it is safe to do so.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

How does Teeth Whitening work?

The whitening gel is placed into your custom fitted tray and inserted over your teeth. The enamel and dentin are gently whitened whilst the structure of the tooth is not changed, only the tooth colour is lightened.

This take home whitening system will whiten your teeth within a matter of days; even the toughest of stains. For optimum results we recommend using the whitening gels and trays for a minimum of three consecutive days at a time. However most people need 10-14 days of treatment to get their ideal results.

Teeth Whitening is not suitable for pregnant or lactating women, children under the age of 16, those who experience severe sensitivity and those who have allergies to any of the ingredients within the whitening product.

We also include GC Tooth Mousse with each of our bleaching kits, as it has been shown to be beneficial for sensitivity of teeth and longevity for the whitening.

It is important to note that the teeth whitening procedure will NOT whiten your crowns, bridges, fillings or veneers. The whitening process will only lighten tooth enamel. If you have restorations on your front teeth, they may need to be replaced after the whitening process is finished.
