Teeth whitening has been one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments of the last decade. It is a simple procedure that can improve your smile quickly by brightening your teeth in only an hour. You can choose from either an immediate teeth whitening in Lane Cove or a customised take home treatment. Both procedures are safe and effective in removing deep teeth discolouration. A specially formulated whitening gel gently enters the tooth’s layers to lighten the affected areas.
One-hour whitening If you’re looking for a fast and convenient way to whiten your teeth, then this is the right method for you. Our teeth whitening in Lane Cove approximately takes about one hour, allowing you to drop by our centre even during your lunch break. We use a bright light to whiten your teeth reduce the discolouration quickly. You can already imagine leaving our clinic flashing a rejuvenated smile with our high-quality treatment.
Customised take home treatment This option allows you to improve your smile with tailored trays that would fit over your teeth perfectly. Our ultra-thin trays contain a special whitening gel, which are effective in brightening your teeth if worn for about four to eight hours at a time—usually overnight while sleeping. While you may already notice a significant improvement in only a few days, you may need to continue daily treatment for seven to 14 days for optimal results.
You can expect the same result out of both treatments. The only difference is the time you need to wait to achieve your preferred outcome. The most common technique is the combination of both, where the take-home component is worn around three days, allowing you to get rapid and long-lasting positive results.
Suitability for treatment
During an examination we will determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. It is important that you have a clean, decay free mouth prior to the commencement of your whitening treatment. Tooth whitening is a simple and effective way to lift your smile. You will be surprised at the difference this can make to your confidence.
How long will my teeth remain white?
This will depend on how you care for your teeth and the type of discoloration. The teeth will always be lighter than they were. However, some patients may need periodic whitening every one to two years, especially if you continue to use staining substances like caffeine, wine or tobacco products.
Are there side effects to the tooth whitening treatment?
Sometimes patients may experience tooth hypersensitivity or gum irritations from the concentrated gel. However, as long as detailed instructions are followed the majority of patients have no side effects.
