Parramatta Teeth Whitening
Best Teeth Whitening Service in Parramatta
Teeth whitening, dental whitening or just whitening is a dental procedure where a bleaching agent is placed over the teeth to whiten the colour of the smile. Whitening at the dentist differs from whitening strips and toothpaste that can be bought over the counter as it is stronger and faster.
It is a safe procedure that can help improve your smile but there are multiple things to consider before deciding to do teeth whitening.
Having regular exams and professional teeth cleaning will help you in maintaining a brighter. A good discussion with your dentist or oral health therapist about teeth whitening Sydney will help you understand whether it is the right treatment for you as different stains and discolorations are treated differently.
Is your smile just ‘fine’ but you noticed that it’s quite stained or is more yellow now then it was before?
Then teeth whitening might be the treatment for you as it just helps improve your smile in terms of the colour. It is a non-invasive treatment where the bleach is just placed on the tooth surface to lighten the pigmented surfaces. No tooth surface is physically removed during the process.
Teeth whitening might also be a good option for you if you have not had veneers, crowns or fillings in your smile and would like an improvement.
However, good results are dependent on multiple factors that could have caused the discolouration in your smile. At Parramatta Dentistry we encourage you to have a good discussion with our team of dentist and oral health therapist before undergoing the treatment and whether the treatment will be effective for you.
If you have had dental veneers, dental crowns, bridges or fillings placed on any of the teeth in your smile then whitening is not a good option. Please discuss with us more at Parramatta Dentistry for other options that can help you achieve your smile.
Given the different causes of discolouration, it is important to have your dentist/ oral health therapist thoroughly assess your dental health to determine whether teeth whitening will be an effective treatment for you.
We have two teeth whitening treatment options available: Take-home teeth whitening and in-chair teeth whitening.
Our at-home kit contains a set of custom-made teeth whitening trays and effective low-concentration whitening gel. Whitening gel is applied to the trays, which need to be worn consistently for 30 minutes every day for a week or two to achieve the desired result.
You can comfortably whiten your teeth for 30 minutes during the day with our PolaDay System. It offers you the convenience of being able to use it whenever you like for the 7 to 14–day period. We provide you with enough whitening gel for your initial treatment period and a number of maintenance applications. Under our supervision this technique is safe for your teeth and gums.
We offer a 90 minutes in chair whitening procedure with our SDI PolaOffice+ whitening system. We have chosen this system over others is because this is proven to be the most efficient, longer lasting and affordable treatment for our patients. This immediately improves the whiteness of your teeth, but some patients choose to maximise and maintain the results by following up with an take-home whitening system.
The main benefit of in-chair teeth whitening is the immediacy of results – a significant change in whiteness is seen within a short period of time.
The difference between Take-Home Whitening and In-Chair Whitening are mainly treatment time and strength of bleaching gel.
With Take Home Whitening:
- Two clear custom-made trays are created to sit over your teeth.
- Syringes of bleaching gels are given for you to use at home for a period of time
- Your dentist/oral health therapist will show you how to use it at home
- Results will take about one week to show
With In-Chair Whitening:
- You will be seated in the dental chair for the procedure
- A stronger bleaching gel will be placed over the teeth by the dentist or oral health therapist and a blue light will be placed over the teeth
- 4 cycles of the light and bleaching gel will be completed
- Results can be seen at the end of the appointment
Both treatments will require care afterwards in the form of avoiding dark, pigmented or stain filled foods and drinks for a couple of days afterwards to maintain the colour. For both treatment types, maintenance of the colour will be required overtime in the form of top-up trays.
Other management care tips will be discussed further depending on which treatment is chosen.
Teeth sensitivity, gum sensitivity and possible gum burns can occur during any whitening procedure. Though it can be uncomfortable, these discomforts usually subside quickly within 48 hours to a week.
It is important to have a good discussion with our dentist and oral health therapist about your whitening treatment to achieve a good result and manage expectations. This is especially important when using the Take-Home Whitening kit incorrectly which can lead to painful gum burns, ulcers or uneven results.
For Take-Home Whitening, please expect to visit us for two appointments as the first appointment is for us to discuss and demonstrate to you how to use the take-home whitening kit and to take impressions for the custom whitening trays. The second appointment is for you to take the bleaching trays and take-home whitening kit with the gel.
Printed instructions will be given to you just to walk you through the steps again at home.
For In-chair whitening appointments, please expect it to be a long appointment from one and a half hours and upwards. You will be lying down in the dental chair for the majority of the appointment and eating after the treatment can cause sensitivity.
Please eat and drink before coming for the treatment and feel free to bring earphones or something to listen to during the appointment. The teeth will be sensitive after the appointment, so using sensitivity toothpaste and staying away from cold foods and drinks for the day to help limit sensitivity.
With in-chair whitening, having clean teeth is required for the treatment to work as the bleaching gel cannot bleach teeth if there is a lot of hardened dental plaque covering the teeth. We always recommend having a dental clean prior to the teeth whitening appointment.
If it has been a while, we do offer teeth cleaning and in chair whitening together. Please contact us via phone or email at Parramatta Dentistry to see what would suit you most.
At Parramatta Dentistry we advise teeth cleaning before the teeth whitening treatment as removing the calculus/tartar and soft plaque will yield a better result. That’s why with our current specials, we have combined these appointments. Please contact us at Parramatta Dentistry to see which would suit your smile best.
