Get Whiter & Brighter Teeth

Everybody loves to look their best with a set of gleaming, perfectly white teeth. However, your teeth are exposed daily to various factors that can result in staining and discolouration. Sometimes the teeth themselves become structurally discoloured. If you wish to get a whiter and brighter smile, teeth whitening is one of the best solutions. It is usually a one-time dental procedure that is quite common and widely adopted. With the advent of the latest technology in dentistry, we have modern whitening treatment procedures which give outstanding whitening results.

There are many different types of whitening aids available; however, we have found that “Zoom” works best and achieves optimum results for our patients. Before your “Zoom” whitening treatment, we also perform a thorough check-up and clean to ensure your teeth are suitable for this highly effective whitening procedure.


Why Is There a Need For Teeth Whitening?

The enamel reflects the natural colour of your tooth, and the dentin is the inner surface of teeth. If either of them or both get stained, they reflect the yellow colour of the teeth. There could be several reasons for tooth discolouration.

These include:

The Teeth Whitening procedure clears the stain and makes your teeth look whiter. However, the results may vary from one person to another.

Some Great Teeth Whitening Treatments

There are two ways to whiten your teeth:

  1. The Zoom teeth whitening process involves the placement of a peroxide-based substance onto the surface of your teeth. This is then absorbed via microscopic holes in the surface enamel of your teeth. With this Zoom whitening procedure, you have two options:
  • In-surgery Teeth Whitening: This involves the carefully controlled application of whitening agents to your teeth in surgery. A peroxide gel is applied and then activated by a special Zoom LED light to create whiter teeth instantly.
  • Home Teeth Whitening: We can also provide you with a “Zoom” kit and easy-to-follow instructions, enabling you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home.
  1. The peroxide molecules interact with and break down any staining, unveiling the true radiance and natural whiteness of your teeth.

Having whiter teeth and a great smile can be life-changing in so many ways. It’s well and truly worth it! Shining white teeth:

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Yes, there’s minimum risk involved in teeth whitening, but it’s best to check with a dental expert near you. ADA (Australian Dental Association) recommends pre-consultation with the dentist, especially for patients with fillingscrowns, and dark stains. A thorough oral examination helps us to determine the best whitening treatment. Before we start the process, we consider it essential to understand the source of discolouration. Some common culprits include cigarette smoking, tea, coffee, and red wine. Some underlying factors like root exposure and decay could also be the potential reasons for staining. We believe in addressing them before whitening to avoid sensitivity and help our patients achieve the best possible results.
