If you look in the mirror or at a photo and feel disappointed by the colour of your teeth, you are not alone. Stained teeth are a common complaint we hear about regularly in our Randwick dental clinic. Fortunately, we offer a convenient and effective solution to regain the bright smile of your youth.
At Centennial Smiles, we use the Zoom! Whitening system, one of the most popular and consistently impressive products available in cosmetic dentistry today.
If you drink coffee or tea, use tobacco or drink red wine, you likely expect stained teeth, but what about everyday foods and beverages? Even healthy, colourful vegetables, fruits and spices can leave stains behind.
Since enjoying your favourite foods and beverages is an enjoyable part of life, you could use professional teeth whitening to counteract the staining nature of daily life.
It is always best to begin a teeth whitening regimen after a professional dental clean, which removes surface tartar and plaque, which may interfere with your results.
For patients who wish to see instant results and reduce their treatment time, we offer a chairside whitening system using professional strength whitening gel right here in our surgery.
We begin by placing a protective covering over the gums to reduce sensitivity and discomfort before applying professional strength whitening gel to the surfaces of the teeth. As it penetrates, the gel bleaches away years of stains. Repeating the application up to two more times within about an hour will leave you with a much whiter smile.
To continue the process at home, we will take impressions of your teeth to create custom whitening trays to hold the gel in place. You can wear your trays for thirty minutes a day until you reach the maximum level of whitening.
If you use tobacco, you may wish to consider giving it up to improve your smile. If that seems like too tall a request, you can simply plan to repeat your treatments in a few months when stains begin to redevelop.
If you drink tea, coffee or red wine, rinsing or brushing your teeth after you consume it can help.
Regular dental cleanings will also remove surface stains and leave your teeth looking shiny.
We carry additional whitening gel kits in our Randwick dental clinic to help you maintain a white smile for a lifetime.
Our team welcomes you to contact us to arrange an appointment with Dr Andrew Dunn. He will discuss your options with you. Teeth whitening is always more effective under the supervision of an experienced dentist.
