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.

Can anyone have professional teeth whitening treatment?
For instance, existing dental issues, such as gum disease and tooth decay, will need to be addressed before teeth whitening treatment is possible.

Teeth whitening may also not be an option for patients with ongoing tooth sensitivity and is something to bear in mind.
