How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

To achieve beautiful white teeth, teeth whitening Parramatta is the safest, affordable and non invasive option to attain this result. Teeth whitening Parramatta uses a whitening gel that contains active hydrogen peroxide ingredient to bleach the enamel, the outer surface of the teeth. Once the whitening gel is applied onto the teeth a reaction from the whitening agent will occur. The oxygen molecule from the whitening gel will start to break down the bond between the discoloured molecules from the teeth. This reaction ultimately results in the process of achieving brighter and whiter teeth.

Which Stains Work Well With Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening in Sydney works well on extrinsic stains which are stains that occur on the surface of the teeth. Intrinsic stains that appear on the micro cracks of the enamel and in the dentin, the layer underneath the enamel has a lower possibility. Hence it is always recommended to get a consultation with a dentist to see if your teeth are suitable for teeth whitening. There are also two types of teeth whitening available at Parramatta Dentistry, in-chair and take-home. The dentist will be able to discuss which option is best suited for you.

In-Chair Teeth Whitening

The appointment for in-chair teeth whitening will take up to 60 minutes. The dental clinician will apply a barrier on your gums, this is to protect the whitening agent from burning the soft tissues. After applying the barrier, they will proceed with the whitening gel and blue light to active the whitening process.
