Caringbah Teeth Whitening
If your teeth are looking dull and are looking lacklustre, a quick teeth whitening at The Caringbah Dentists can bring the shine back to your smile.
Many people try over the counter teeth whitening kits and toothpastes to whiten their yellowing teeth. Sure, they may work to a certain extent, but for a white bright smile that turns heads, you need the professional touch.
Teeth whitening is a quick and easy procedure that can be done during your lunch hour. It’s that quick. At The Caringbah Dentists we pride ourselves in improving the smiles and confidence of people from all walks of life and all ages.
Do you need teeth whitening?
The thing to remember about the colour of teeth is that they are not an indicator of your health. You may have stained or yellowed teeth that are quite healthy. Teeth whitening is an elective procedure done purely for cosmetic reasons. Many people lose their confidence and self-esteem because of their dull unattractive smiles. Teeth whitening can offer a quick fix.
Most stains, even stubborn ones from nicotine, red wine etc. Can be removed by teeth whitening. However, intrinsic staining caused by certain antibiotics may not be reversible by teeth whitening. Tetracycline may cause staining of teeth as a side-effect, and this cannot be reversed by normal whitening. Here, you will need to consider veneers to whiten your smile.
Are you a good candidate for teeth whitening?
Most patients who are overall healthy and do not suffer from any serious dental conditions are good candidates for teeth whitening. However, if you suffer from excessive teeth sensitivity, gum diseases, or tooth decay, address these issues first before the procedure.
If you have extensive dental restorations such as crowns or bridges, your dentist may advise against whitening the rest of the teeth because the whitened teeth may look much brighter than the crowns. Mismatched colour will make the crowns more obvious.
Women are generally advised to not whiten the teeth while they are pregnant or lactating. It is better to wait till you are no longer pregnant or nursing before undergoing the teeth whitening procedure.
Professional teeth whitening for fast results
For the fastest and most reliable results, there is nothing to beat an in-office teeth whitening procedure done by a cosmetic dentist.
The procedure is fairly simple and straightforward. The dentist will apply the bleaching gel over your teeth after protecting your lips and gums with a special guard. The whitening agents get activated by a special UV light shone on the teeth.
Teeth whitening can whiten the teeth up to ten shades whiter.
