Teeth Whitening in Fairfield and Hampton VIC
Do you have yellow teeth that are showing the signs of ageing? You are not alone. Because we eat colourful foods and drink our morning coffee or tea, eventually the symptoms start to show on our teeth. Fortunately, your dentist in Fairfield and Hampton has solutions to bring the sparkle back to your smile.
Professional teeth whitening at Sparkle Dental Care can safely and quickly brighten discoloured teeth that have built up stains due to lifestyle habits or diet. If you have an upcoming event, such as a wedding, holiday or reunion, now might be the right time to ask your Melbourne dentist about teeth whitening options.
In-Chair Teeth Whitening
For fast results in a single dental visit, in-chair teeth whitening can brighten smiles in about 90 minutes. In-chair teeth whitening is often a popular choice for busy parents and professionals who want a brighter smile over the lunch hour or after work.
After placing a protective barrier on the gums, we will cover the teeth with professional-strength teeth whitening gel and allow it to gently bleach away yellow or brown teeth stains. We can repeat the process three to four times in a single visit so that you leave the clinic with teeth that can be several shades brighter.
Take-Home Custom Teeth Whitening Trays
For patients who want the convenience of whitening their teeth on their own time at home, custom whitening trays and gel that our Melbourne dentists provide can give you brighter results in about two weeks with regular use.
We will take impressions of the teeth to make clear trays that hold the gel in place for 30 to 45 minutes per use daily. Just place a tiny dot of whitening gel in each tooth-shaped space in your trays and wear them, wiping any excess gel away from the gums.
Wearing trays longer than recommended or using too much gel will not improve results, but might cause sensitivity. If sensitivity develops, take a day or two off between uses. It should subside. We also have sensitivity-reducing treatments available for those patients with gum recession or sensitive teeth, so you can still have white teeth comfortably.
Should I Whiten My Teeth?
Any type of cosmetic dentistry is a personal choice. You will never find high-pressure sales at Sparkle Dental Care. We will present your options if you are interested in cosmetic dentistry for your smile.
Starting with a thorough clean and polish will remove any surface stains and tartar that have collected on the teeth and will usually give you better results overall. If you have internal discolouration, veneers or bonding might give you the solution you are looking for.
