The process of teeth whitening involves the use of a bleaching agent to whiten your teeth. Treatment options depend on your dental history, causes of tooth discolouration and the degree of discolouration. Unfortunately, teeth whitening is not suitable for everyone. Therefore at Gentle Care Dentistry, we require a check-up with the dentist before any whitening treatment. Talk to one of our dentists today to discuss the best treatment for you.
At Gentle Care Dentistry we offer the following options for teeth whitening:
In-Chair Zoom Whitening, plus a bonus take-home whitening kit
Take Home Pola-Night Whitening Pack with customised trays
1. Philips Zoom In-Chair Whitening
The in-chair whitening is performed in the dental clinic and can take approximately 90 minutes. It has the ability to whiten your teeth up to 8 shades, and you will see results on the day. During the procedure, your gums are carefully protected and a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied by the dentist. The light from the Zoom Accelerator helps whiten your teeth faster. We will provide you with a take-home pack after your treatment to allow you to top up.
This option involves two appointments.
The first appointment will involve taking impressions to create customised trays, and a check-up and exam
The second appointment will involve the in-chair whitening which is based on 15-minute cycles for 3-4 rounds. The complimentary take-home whitening kit will also be provided
2. Pola Night Take Home Whitening Kit
The take-home whitening involves placing a small amount of gel in customised whitening trays. The trays will be worn for at least 30 minutes each day, for around 14 days. Unlike the in-chair whitening, the take-home kits may take at least two weeks to see results.
This treatment will involve two appointments. The first appointment will involve taking impressions to make the customised trays and a check-up and exam. The second appointment will involve the issuing of trays and bleaching kit, and demonstrate how to use correctly.
