Teeth Whitening in Gordon – Whiter Teeth in An Hour

Chairside teeth whitening in Gordon takes place in our dental clinic. Like all cosmetic dentistry treatments, it requires a consultation to assess your suitability for the procedure. We use Philips Zoom teeth whitening, which is safe, reliable, and produces predictable results.

We start by covering your lips and gums with a thin plastic device known as a retractor. This allows only the teeth to be exposed. Bleaching gel is carefully applied to your teeth. Then, a high-intensity light is shone on to them to activate the whitening agent, while you sit back and relax. After 15 minutes, the gel is rinsed off and the colour checked.

Depending on how well your teeth whiten, our dentist may repeat this procedure twice more until the desired colour/shade is achieved. There’s nothing more to it – a whiter, brighter smile in less than an hour!

Convenient Teeth Whitening at Home

Many of our patients prefer the convenience of whitening teeth in the comfort of their own home. If this sounds like you, our custom take-home whitening trays could be your answer.

You will be asked to attend a consultation at our dental clinic in Gordon NSW for our dentists to assess your oral health. Afterwards, they will take an impression of your mouth and teeth in order to manufacture your custom trays.

Once your trays are received/obtained from the dental laboratory, you can pick them up along with your whitening gel and instructions on how to use them

Depending on the brand used, you may wear your trays for a short while during the day or overnight while you sleep. You should start to see results within a few days. Primarily, teeth achieve their ultimate whiteness within a couple of weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes my teeth to discolour?
Teeth discolour and become stained for a number of reasons. Food and drink are the most common cause of teeth staining. Drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine are notoriously bad for staining the surface of the teeth. Foods like curry can also cause discolouration.

Other causes of tooth discolouration include:

  • Age
  • Medications
  • Smoking
  • Poor dental hygiene, and
  • Disease

Our dentists in Gordon NSW can assess the causes of tooth discolouration and suggest the appropriate treatments to brighten them. Sometimes, a simple scale and clean procedure is sufficient.

Can anyone have professional teeth whitening treatment?
Teeth whitening in Gordon NSW is not a suitable treatment for everyone. As a result, we ask you to attend a consultation to examine your mouth and gums.

For instance, existing dental issues, such as gum disease and tooth decay, will need to be addressed before teeth whitening treatment is possible. In addition, darker teeth don’t always react well to teeth whitening; in these cases, dental veneers may be a better option. Teeth whitening may also not be an option for patients with ongoing tooth sensitivity and is something to bear in mind.

How does teeth whitening work?
When whitening gel is applied, it’s absorbed into the porous surface of the teeth. Depending on the brand, a high-density light is used to activate and speed up the procedure. The bleaching agent, hydrogen peroxide, breaks down the staining molecules and lifts them out of the tooth enamel to create brighter, cleaner looking teeth. It is important to note that teeth will never whiten beyond their natural tooth colour. This is why some people achieve whiter teeth than others with the same professional teeth whitening treatment in Gordon.
How long does teeth whitening last?
This is a difficult question to answer because it all depends on how well you care for your teeth after whitening. If you revert back to the habits that caused your teeth to discolour in the first instance, your teeth will require a top-up treatment sooner. However, if you brush and floss thoroughly each day and avoid beverages and food that can stain your teeth, the effects of your whitening treatment will last longer. On average, teeth whitening should last for around 12 months.
