Teeth whitening | Your new smile awaits
When it comes to creating a whiter, brighter smile for you, our team of chermside dentists can help through teeth whitening. Self confidence in your smile is important, and we can help you improve your smile.
There are many ways that we can improve your smile. There is a surprising amount of complexity to create a great smile, however the basics are colour, shape and position.
For the shape and position of teeth, we often use techniques such as veneers, invisalign and edge bonding. However for the colour, we love using a non-invasive approach often known as teeth whitening.
Types of teeth whitening
Professional teeth whitening comes in two main forms: In-chair zoom whitening and at-home custom tray whitening.
Either option achieves great results if done correctly with good case selection by our dental team. For the in-chair zoom whitening, we will schedule a 90 to 120minute appointment whereby the zoom whitening gel will be applied, with the zoom whitening light, multiple times throughout the visit. This treatment is very effective. For the best results we recommend following this up with 2 weeks of at-home custom tray whitening, followed by at-home top up whitening every 6-12 months.
The other popular option is at-home teeth whitening as a stand-alone treatment. This option involves us taking moulds/scans of your teeth to create a custom fit whitening tray set, which we will ask you to wear everyday for 1 hour for 2 weeks. This is a great option as it’s inexpensive to repeat every 6-12 months as the trays will fit long-term.
Our professional team at Chermside Dental Care love helping you attain and maintain those beautiful white teeth in a safe, professional and cost effective manner.
