Teeth whitening offers an overall brightening of the teeth.

adelaide dental clinic

When staining is present on the surface of the tooth, the dentist can professionally clean your teeth, often producing a fresher, whiter appearance.

For a more dramatic effect, teeth whitening offers an overall brightening of the teeth.

We provide two main methods of tooth whitening:

  1. In-chair Tooth Whitening, AND;
  2. Take-home Whitening Kit

In Chair Teeth Whitening

The In-chair Whitening technique first involves the dentist preparing the teeth by giving them a gentile clean and removing any debris.

The dentist then takes appropriate measures to protect the gums and surrounding tissues with barrier protection and gels.

The bleaching solution is then applied to the teeth by the dentist, and an ultraviolet light is used to activate the lightening of the teeth .

This process usually takes a couple of hours and results can be seen immediately.

Take Home Teeth Whitening Kit

The Take-home Whitening Kit technique involves the dentist taking an impression of your teeth, making a special tray custom to your mouth, and providing the bleaching kit for you to take home and use at your convenience.

The desired level of whitening is under your control, which can be done in the privacy of your own home.

The method involves the application of the bleaching agent into the custom made special tray, which is then worn either during the day or overnight.

Often, over time, teeth can re-stain through drinking red wine and coffee, the take home kit enables you to re-whiten your teeth at any stage, so long as you keep your custom made special tray. The bleaching kit can be purchased separately at any time at our surgery.

The type of tooth whitening you prefer will depend on your circumstances.

Some patients want to see results straight away and don’t want to fuss with applying the solution at home.

Others prefer the take home kit because they are able to control their desired level of whitening, and continue whitening their teeth over time with the purchase of a bleaching kit.

Alternatively, when the enamel of the tooth is heavily stained, crowns or facings may be the best option.
