Teeth Whitening

Linda Schaller | Dental Services | Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening (also known as teeth bleaching, dental whitening and cosmetic teeth whitening) has become one of the fastest growing areas of cosmetic dentistry offered in dental practices around the world. Professional teeth whitening, is a service that should only be carried out by trained professionals who not only have the knowledge, but also the experience required when bleaching teeth.

Over time, your teeth naturally darken and the older you get the more likely it is for your teeth to become discolored. There are a number of other factors that can affect the rate in which this happens including the food you eat, if you are a smoker as well as a range of health issues that can also cause what is known as ‘The Yellowing’ of teeth.



Looking for that Hollywood smile?

Teeth whitening is the go to service for patients who are interested in having whiter teeth or those who are looking for that ‘Hollywood White Smile’.

Having white teeth can be seen as a fashion statement but for many the discoloration of teeth can cause insecurities, which is why the use of teeth whitening bleach and other teeth whitening products started to become increasingly popular. From home based teeth whitener kits through to teeth whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes, it is clear to see that this is a service that is here to stay.

The Assessment

You will first be given an assessment to make sure your teeth are in good health. You are also given a thorough clean and instruction in oral hygiene to ensure your teeth and gums can be maintained. Pictures of the existing shade of the teeth are taken as well as impressions in order to create personalised bleaching trays.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

– It works for all ages
– It is successful in removing unsightly stains (e.g. smoke stains)
– It is safe and does not damage teeth
– It may be done in two ways (see below)

In Surgery

If patients decide to have ‘in-house bleaching’ or ‘power bleaching’ then this is a quick, effective way to obtain immediate results to whiten teeth. You will then be provided with bleaching trays and bleaching gel to continue the whitening procedure at home. You return a couple of weeks later for the new shade of your teeth to be taken as well as photos.

Home Bleaching

Home bleaching achieves the same results as ‘in-surgery’ bleaching but just takes a little longer and relies on you to use your trays daily for a short period of time.
