It’s natural to want to have a beautiful, bright smile but sometimes over the years routine actions and lifestyle habits such as drinking tea, coffee or red wine or smoking, can stain our teeth, leaving us with a smile which is less attractive, dull and far less bright than it once was. Teeth whitening is becoming one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments nowadays and it can provide excellent results within just a short while.
Your options include immediate teeth whitening during a one-hour treatment at Smile Craft Dental, in either our Newcastle, Tuncurry/Forster or Wingham practices. Alternatively, you can opt for a take home treatment. Both procedures are safe and effective, using a specially formulated whitening gel that will gently enter the tooth’s layers to lighten the affected areas. Individual results will depend on the condition of your teeth, the type of staining, and the specific method of teeth whitening treatment you choose. We strongly recommend that you have a check-up, a dental clean and decay free mouth prior to the commencement of your whitening treatment. If you have healthy teeth and gums, and you do not suffer from receding gums and excessively sensitive teeth, teeth whitening may be an ideal way to remove stains and freshen up your smile.
Our one-hour whitening is good if you’re looking for a fast and convenient way to whiten your teeth. We use Zoom Whitening which is safe and very effective. The bleach is activated with a special laser, allowing it to penetrate your teeth more easily and more quickly. Our customised take home bleaching kits are also good, the only difference is the time required to achieve a whiter smile. The most common technique is to use both, where you will wear our take-home whitening trays for a few hours each day after your in-chair treatment, allowing you to get rapid and long-lasting results.
Tooth whitening is a simple and effective way to brighten your smile
How long your teeth whitening lasts will depend on the lifestyle choices you make after your treatment. However, you may notice their teeth discolour more quickly if you continue to use staining substances like caffeine, wine or tobacco products.
Sometimes patients may experience tooth hypersensitivity or gum irritations from the concentrated gel. This is unlikely to happen if you have a healthy mouth and teeth that are not overly sensitive. It is also important not to over-use the products provided in our home-whitening kits. These kits are easy to use and we provide clear instructions on their use.
