Teeth Whitening At Beyond Smiles Dental
If you are considering teeth whitening, you are not alone. Discolouration and staining of teeth can be an unsightly source of embarrassment for many. Beyond Smiles Dental offers the latest technology in professional teeth whitening as well as home teeth whitening options.
Causes of Teeth Discoloration
The outer layer of the tooth is the enamel, and is white in colour. Over time, the enamel thins, resulting in a more translucent appearance. The layer beneath the enamel, the dentin, is a soft yellow tone, and this becomes more visible through the enamel, and causes teeth to appear shades away from white.
Tooth discolouration can occur due to age, but is also influenced by many of aspects of our lifestyle. Smoking is a major cause of tooth discolouration, resulting in a yellow tinge to teeth. Drinking coffee, soft drinks, and red wine also results in enamel thinning and tooth staining. Additionally, damaged and cracked teeth can result in tooth discolouration, as stains can penetrate into these cracks.
How can we help you?
Whether you are looking for general teeth whitening to improve your smile, or you have an upcoming special event, such as a wedding, we can help you. We offer two services for teeth whitening – in clinic and at home. Our in-clinic service is highly effective and will leave you walking out of the clinic with brighter whiter teeth that same day. Our take home treatment works to whiten teeth over a period of time, from the comfort of your own home.
In Clinic Teeth whitening process
Our in clinic treatment uses a strong and safe bleaching solution that will create instant results. Due to the level of potency, this treatment should only be performed by a qualified health professional.
First you come in for an initial consultation where you undergo a routine scale and clean in preparation for the whitening treatment. One week after this initial appointment, you return for the 60-90 minute procedure.
A special whitening solution is applied to your teeth. The treatment is activated on exposure to a specialised light source, which is carried out in 15-minute intervals. The dentist will check on the procedure at each break, and will check in with you, ensuring you are comfortable and happy to proceed.
Upon completion of the treatment, the dentist will present you with an after-care take home kit. This package contains items to maintain your treatment, and continue at home treatment if you wish to obtain further results.
Take Home Teeth Whitening – Self Applied
We offer take home whitening treatments for those who prefer to improve the colour of their teeth from the comfort of their home. It is important to consult a dental professional before undergoing teeth whitening treatments in order to achieve the best results in a safe way.
First you come into the clinic for a routine consultation, during which we assess your teeth and gums, ensuring the whitening process will be safe and effective for you. The dentist will determine which concentration of whitening gel is best suited for your teeth. We then cast impressions of your teeth in order to create custom-fit trays for at-home use. These specialised trays will hold the bleaching gel appropriately against your teeth while avoiding the gums, resulting in professional grade tooth whitening results at home.
