Teeth whitening at the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre in Melbourne is an effective treatment to brighten your smile.
There are some people that are simply blessed with wonderful pearly whites, while others have much darker teeth or teeth that have yellowed with age. Regardless of the reasoning, teeth can be safely whitened using dental grade teeth whitening from the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre.
Varying types of whitening agents are used (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) in different concentrations to suit a patient’s whitening requirements. In office (performed at a practice) whitening uses very strong bleaches placed by a trained operator directly on the teeth. The results of this type of treatment are very rapid, but at the same time the longevity of the whitening is reduced. This process also uses very strong bleaching agents that can harm the gums. We don’t recommend ‘in office’ whitening.
At cdc we currently recommend home whitening as this is much longer lasting and, as all whitening techniques need regular maintenance for life, the cost is effectively less because the patient already has the whitening equipment. We can offer either a day or night time teeth whitening package, specifically developed to your requirements. Our custom built whitening trays are made here at the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Process
- Impressions are taken of your teeth and custom built whitening trays (very thin) are made specifically for your mouth. After the Dentist has ensured that your trays are a good fit you will be sent home with the whitening materials to use in the comfort of your own home or workplace and at the convenience of your own timing.
- You can choose the degree of the night & day whitening yourself. If you go for the day whitening method, you either let the gel work on the whitening trays for 1-2 hours or leave them on for two periods of 30 min respectively. The night whitening process, on the other hand, provides an all-night application of the gel.
- Whitening will take between two and three weeks and it is necessary to top up approximately 4 times a year. It is not unusual for teeth to experience some sensitivity during the whitening process which will resolve after the treatment has finished.
