Pearly whites are just a call away
We can help you decide on the best treatment for you
It would be fair to say that of any cosmetic treatment, teeth whitening can offer the most obvious, positive improvement to appearance.
There are a number of different teeth whitening procedures available today, with different durations; some involve treatments at home while others can be completed after a single treatment in the clinic.
We can help you decide on the best treatment for you.
Zoom! In-Office Whitening by Phillips
Philips Zoom! Whitening is not like other whitening systems found in the market. It is number 1 in the US and Australia and used by many celebrities and make-over programs, and requires a licensed clinician to carry out the procedure.
Unlike other whitening systems, Zoom! does not dehydrate your teeth as much, and you’ll experience much lower teeth sensitivity. Also, Zoom Whitening uses LED light to whiten teeth rather than UV light, making it safer for our patients. It is the safest way to whiter teeth with no adverse effect on existing fillings or crowns, nor will it damage or weaken the enamel. Its formula helps give your teeth a greater shine and helps protect your enamel.
This procedure is performed in the dental chair and usually takes around one to one and a half hours to complete. In-office whitening is the best option for those wanting ‘instant’ results.
Our clinician will apply the whitening gel to your teeth and activate it with a special lamp. After just one appointment, you’ll find that your teeth may be up to 8 shades whiter!
We recommend a scale and polish/hygiene with one of our hygienists before your whitening session for optimal results.
Opalescence Take-Home Whitening
This technique involves having custom bleaching trays made and worn for an initial two weeks. Included in this process is a 30-minute whitening consultation, followed by a 15-minute tray fit appointment.
With this treatment, you can see results within a couple of days of starting treatment.
This technique is routinely sold at the supermarket. Our patients report that “whitening strips” can cause increased tooth and gum sensitivity.
Please ask us if this may suit you.
