Teeth Whitening Melbourne CBD
Teeth whitening is one if not the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments offering a quick, non-invasive and cost-effective way to enhance a smile.
Why Whiten Teeth?
Everyone is different, and just like our hair and skin colour, our teeth colour also vary.
Very few individuals have brilliantly white teeth, and our teeth can also change their colour as we age.
Your teeth can also be discoloured by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and blackcurrant. Smoking can also stain the teeth.
‘Calculus’ or tartar can also affect your teeth colour.
Some people may have internal teeth stains, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or by tiny pits in the teeth which take up stains.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide).
These bleaches break down stains into smaller pieces, which makes the colour less concentrated and your teeth brighter.
Teeth Whitening Options in Melbourne CBD
Talk to your Melbourne CBD dentist before starting any dental procedure.
If you are a qualified candidate for teeth whitening, here’s what we can do to put the shine back on your smile:
In-Office Teeth Whitening
This procedure is called chairside bleaching and usually requires only one office visit.
Your Melbourne CBD dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums.
Bleach is then applied to the teeth.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Your Melbourne CBD dentist can provide you with a custom-made tray for at-home whitening.
In this case, your Melbourne CBD dentist will give you instructions on how to place the whitening solution in the tray for a length of time.
This may be an option if you feel more comfortable whitening at a slower pace, but still with the guidance of your Melbourne CBD dentist.
Out-of-office bleaching can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
