Teeth Whitening

teeth whiteningAt The Dental Surgery in Belconnen, we offer a whitening product that you can use at home.

A non-invasive dental treatment that lifts stains from the pores of teeth and lightens the colour of natural tooth leading to the appearance of whiter, brighter teeth.

It involves the application of whitening gel placed in pre-fabricated custom-made bleaching trays.

The active ingredients in the bleaching gel are either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

As a result of this treatment, your teeth become lighter and brighter.

When is whitening used?

It is an appropriate, cost-efficient cosmetic treatment for people with stained or discoloured teeth, typically caused by smoking or the consumption of coffee, tea, red wine, cola and some foods.

What are the benefits?

The biggest advantage of Take home Bleaching is the fact that you are in control of the process.

The whitening product is mild and the oxidation process is controlled and slow.  As a result, you can achieve whitening with less sensitivity.

Teeth whitening considerations

  • not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
  • not permanent and the degree of whiteness will vary for each individual depending on the degree of discolouration and the individuals diet habits.

The initial appointment with our dentist will confirm your suitability for teeth whitening.
