Why have Teeth Whitening performed by a Dentist?
Teeth whitening Adelaide is becoming increasingly popular. However, due to the large number of different teeth whitening options available, it is important to understand which will be best for you. Despite the seemingly endless range of teeth whitening options available on the market; ranging from Do-It-Yourself (DIY) take-home kits to whitening toothpaste, having teeth whitening performed by a dentist is still considered to be the most reliable and effective method. Although home teeth whitening can be significantly cheaper, there are a number of risks associated with taking matters into your own hands. Firstly, DIY teeth whitening products do not take into account your dental history. For example, if you have weak enamel, you grind your teeth at night or cavities and then get exposed to strong bleaching agents, you may risk damaging your teeth.
Secondly, it’s also important to understand what’s causing the discolouration of your teeth. Without addressing these problems, you risk worsening the issue. Most patients also don’t realise that when receiving teeth whitening from a dentist, you are being treated by a registered and prescribed health provider under Australia law and you enjoy all of the protections provided by AHPRA, the health regulator. None of these projections apply if you purchase online, over the counter or receive teeth whitening from a beautician or hairdresser.
About Our Teeth Whitening Adelaide Options
If you’re considering teeth whitening Adelaide, why not book a consult and talk to the friendly team today at Adelaide Cosmetic Dentistry. We use a gentle system called Natural Plus to visibly brighten up your teeth, with minimal sensitivity. When you are getting teeth whitening Adelaide, having a professional perform the procedure is extremely important in order to keep your gums and teeth protected, while also ensuring you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening. So, how does the procedure work? It’s simple!
First, we prepare the teeth by carefully cleaning them and protecting the gums. Next, we apply a patented red hydrogen peroxide gel, which is activated using a light. This breaks the staining molecules and leaves your teeth looking whiter. The procedure is then repeated for an additional ten minutes if necessary. After this, you should see a notable difference in the brightness of your smile!
Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening
There are a number of questions our patients ask prior to undergoing teeth whitening Adelaide. One of the most frequently asked questions is whether teeth whitening is permanent. Unfortunately, no teeth whitening treatment is permanent. However, if you minimise the number of foods and drinks that stain teeth, the results are likely to last longer. Secondly, a number of people are concerned with excessive pain or sensitivity. Although pain is not extremely common, some may experience some level of sensitivity. This generally goes away after 24 hours. Furthermore, patients are also concerned about how effective the treatment is. We estimate the results to be at least two shades whiter than what you have. However, everyone is different, and will achieve different results.
