Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening, sometimes referred to as ‘bleaching’, is a non-invasive treatment which brightens the natural colour of tooth enamel to achieve a whiter appearance. It is a popular choice for patients wishing to correct stained, discoloured or yellowed teeth.

Two methods of teeth whitening are offered at Warnbro Sound Dental Clinic:

In-chair whitening

Schedule an appointment, sit back in the comfort of our state-of-the-art dental chairs, and in just one treatment session you can achieve an instant whitening result. First, a qualified cosmetic dentist will apply a highly concentrated whitening gel onto the surface of your teeth. A laser will then be used in conjunction with the agent to chemically lighten the tooth colour, while simultaneously accelerating the result.

Take home kit

Powerful, professional-strength take home kits offer a safe and effective method of teeth whitening that you can perform right in the comfort and convenience of your own home. During a dental consultation, one of our qualified dental practitioners will cast impressions of your teeth to create a custom-made plastic tray for use at home. You will then be supplied with a whitening gel at a concentration level that is suitable for your teeth. You will also receive a demonstration on how to insert the gel into the holding tray and administer the treatment yourself to best achieve your desired result.

TIP: Teeth whitening does not brighten teeth permanently. Patients will require a touch-up treatment every few years. This may be sooner for people who regularly smoke and/or consume tea, coffee or wine.

We recommend that interested patients arrange a consultation with our team to address queries and determine whether either whitening method is a suitable option for them. A dental assessment also provides an opportunity to fill any cavities, which will need treatment prior to undergoing a whitening course, and/or receive a demonstration on how to use the at-home product.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
