Teeth Whitening

Overview of Teeth Whitening

Very few people are lucky enough to have a naturally bright, white smile and age and lifestyle choices can all darken the overall colour of teeth. As we get older, teeth begin to look darker as tooth enamel thins, allowing more of the natural tooth colour to shine through. At the same time, highly coloured foods can penetrate the tooth enamel, causing deep seated stains.

Professional teeth whitening uses premium quality bleaching agents to gently yet effectively lift stubborn stains, boosting the colour of teeth by several shades to create a beautiful yet naturally healthy looking smile.

ZoomTM Whitening

Here at Coastal Smiles Dee Why, we use ZoomTM whitening. Our dentists will conduct an examination of your teeth and gums to ensure you can whiten effectively. People whiten differently and the exact treatment required to achieve your desired results can depend on the type of staining and the colour of your teeth. Every whitening treatment is customised as we adjust the strength of the whitening formula to each person’s needs, taking into account any issues such as tooth sensitivity to ensure treatment is as comfortable as possible.

Our ZoomTM whitening kits include custom-fitted whitening trays that ensure the whitening gel only comes into contact with your teeth and not the sensitive gum tissue. These well-fitting trays are very easy and comfortable to use.

Topping up the Results

Teeth whitening isn’t permanent, but the results should last for quite some time before they need topping up. We can advise you how often you can safely whiten and will supply additional whitening gel for use with our whitening trays.

Frequently Asked Questions

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses bleaching agents to lighten the colour of your teeth and remove stains and discolorations.

Teeth can become discoloured over time due to a variety of factors, including age, genetics, diet, and lifestyle habits such as smoking or drinking coffee or red wine.

There are several teeth whitening options available, including in-office professional teeth whitening, at-home teeth whitening kits, and over-the-counter whitening toothpastes and strips.

Teeth whitening is generally considered safe when performed by a dental professional or when using an approved at-home whitening kit according to the manufacturer's instructions. However, overuse or misuse of whitening products can lead to tooth sensitivity or damage to the enamel.

The length of time that teeth whitening results last can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of whitening treatment used and your diet and lifestyle habits. In general, the results of in-office professional teeth whitening can last up to two years, while at-home whitening treatments may need to be repeated every few months to maintain the results.
