Have you ever thought about whitening your teeth? If you are like most people, you probably wish your teeth were whiter. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular and affordable cosmetic dental options that features excellent results in a short amount of time.

If you want your smile to be whiter and brighter, we invite you to call Sparkle Dental Care. One of our dentists will be happy to go over your teeth whitening options in our Bayside, VIC dental clinic.

How Professional Teeth Whitening Works

Most dental clinics offer professional teeth whitening services. We offer a take-home option that uses customised whitening trays. Each tray is made by taking a mould of your teeth and creating a tray that fits your teeth perfectly. This ensures that the whitening gel touches the teeth during the procedure.

All you need to do is put a small amount of the whitening gel into the trays and wear them for an hour or more every day for a couple of weeks. Within a few days, you should notice that your teeth are whiter.

How to Keep Your Smile White

The length of time teeth whitening lasts will depend on the individual. For some people, it can continue for many months; others will need to perform touch-ups as they notice the whitening start to face.

You can maximise the results of your whitening procedure by avoiding those habits that might have led to less-than-bright teeth in the first place. Avoid habits such as smoking and tobacco use, and stay away from foods and beverages that have staining qualities such as curries, berries, tea and red wine.
