Drinking coffee and tea, smoking cigarettes and eating can all discolor your teeth. As a low-cost, minimally-invasive treatment, teeth whitening is one of the most common reasons to visit a cosmetic dentist. If you are unhappy with the discoloration of your teeth, it’s time to seek teeth whitening solutions.
Our cosmetic dentistry office offers solutions for different budgets and timelines. Whether you choose in-office teeth whitening or take-home whitening trays, results are almost immediate and last several months.
Your whitening results also depend on the type of staining your teeth have endured. The thickness of your enamel, your genetics, or developmental problems could all play a role in your tooth whitening. If the maximum level of whiteness for your teeth is unsuitable, you might consider porcelain veneers instead. It’s up to you to decide how you conduct your whitening in Baulkham Hills, NSW.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
At My Hills Dentist, we offer the most advanced technology. We use Zoom! Teeth Whitening, which ensures drastically whiter teeth in just one hour. We guarantee that your teeth will look and feel great after the safe and reliable treatment performed by cosmetic dentist professionals.
First, we prepare your teeth by cleaning debris and plaque with a general tooth cleaning. Next, we expose your teeth and cover your gums with a rubber dam to protect them from the whitening compound. After we shield your gums, we will then apply a hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel to your teeth. Finally, a high-intensity light catalyst activates the whitening compound to enhance the bleaching process.
Your dental professionals will replace the whitening compound every 15 to 30 minutes, as soon as it becomes deactivated. By using multiple high-concentration bleaching treatments and light activation, in-office treatments tend to work faster and have a stronger effect.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
When people think of teeth whitening, they often think of going to the cosmetic dentist’s office. Another popular option is over-the-counter (OTC) solutions. However, not many people know about take-home teeth whitening treatments. Take-home trays are a feasible prescription-strength tooth whitening option in Baulkham Hills, NSW.
These trays are a more gradual application process. With take-home treatments, you will reach maximum whiteness within several weeks instead of the immediate results you will receive in our cosmetic dentistry office. This is due to lower concentrations of hydrogen peroxide per treatment over longer periods of time.
The process is similar to the in-office treatments, without the light application. First, we recommend a general tooth cleaning appointment. Then, your cosmetic dentist will fit you for your trays. The custom-molded tray will protect your gums from the whitening compound. Some OTC treatments damage your gums and could lead to gum disease. Take-home trays, rather, offer dentist-prescribed strength and even whitening at a lower cost than in-office whitening.
