How to whiten teeth, and is it for everyone?
First and foremost, it is always better to have a teeth whitening procedure carried out by a dentist as opposed to buying drug store or online. The team at Complete Dental Coorparoo can perform an assessment on your teeth and dental health and advise you on whether you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Teeth whitening does usually have better results on teeth with a yellowy tinge as opposed to those with greyish hues. It is also important to note that teeth whitening procedures will have no effect on tooth-coloured composite fillings or teeth that are bonded. The procedure will only make the bonded teeth stand out from the others creating a very unnatural look.
In-chair vs at home teeth whitening kits
With so many affordable options of teeth whitening products out there they can be very tempting to try. However, teeth whitening treatments at a dentist will produce a much better result and often in a fraction of the time. In fact, at Complete Dental our in-office treatment only takes around one hour to complete and allows patients to see immediate results.
Teeth whitening side effects
Following your teeth whitening procedure you will most likely experience some tooth sensitivity. However, most patients do not experience additional side effects. You might find your gums are slightly irritated for the initial couple of days following your appointment, which is completely normal and expected. If you’re concerned with any side effects experienced, please do not hesitate to contact our practice straightaway.
Teeth whitening shades
To achieve the most natural and fresh smile, our dentists recommend trying to match the colour of your teeth to the whites of your eyes. Anything brighter than this can begin to appear extremely translucent while increasing tooth and gum sensitivity. We’ll always let our patients know the best recommendations for their smile!
Like other whitening treatments, the best results are maintained by regular maintenance approximately every six months.
