Quality and Affordable Teeth Whitening in Canberra
Pearly white teeth look and feel great. They’re also healthy too. At Dentist Canberra, we pride ourselves on helping patients create a great, healthy smile. Among all dental procedures which are performed at our practice, teeth whitening procedures are one of the most common. The beauty of teeth whitening is that after just one (or a few sessions) patients will leave our clinic with a brighter, whiter smile. Not only that, but once you have successfully whitened your teeth, it may take just as long as it took to get them to where they were in the first place. Rest assured, that undergoing a teeth whitening procedure in our office, whether it be utilising our in-chair procedure or grabbing one of our take-home kits, you can be certain that the results will be long lasting, and highly effective.
What needs to be remembered is that tooth whitening may not accomplished in just one treatment session. You may need to visit our clinic a couple of times, depending on how many shades lighter you would like your teeth to go, and maintenance whitening sessions every now and then may also necessary to keep your new smile looking forever white and sparkly.
Why should I have my teeth whitened?
The enamel is the part of the tooth which determines how ‘white’ the teeth will appear. This is because it is the outermost part of the teeth. Three of the most common reasons for teeth staining are cigarette or tobacco smoking, excessive intake of dark-tinged beverages such as coffee, and poor oral hygiene. Moreover, teeth may also lose their shine as a person ages or if someone is using antibiotics, such as tetracycline, for a long time. If any of these causes are familiar to you, and you think that you could benefit from a teeth whitening session (or two!) then call our Canberra clinic on (02) 6181 0771 and we can schedule a session for you.
Processes Involved In Tooth Whitening
Since stained teeth may have other underlying causes, it is imperative that patients seek at least a checkup before having their teeth whitened. An example of this is when a patient has cavities. If this is the case, the patient needs to have these filled and treated since the whitening chemical can seep through these cavities and come in contact with the sensitive, inner parts of the teeth. Whitening procedures may also not be suitable for ceramic tooth and dental veneers.
Professional teeth whitening procedures done in our clinic may initially begin with our staff taking an in depth analysis and image of the your teeth. This will be used as a baseline for determining how much the teeth has lightened post-procedure.
