What is In-Office Teeth Whitening?

Yellow teeth are a sign that your enamel has been discoloured by the foods and beverages you consume. Coffee, tea, and red wine contain pigments that bond to your enamel and change the color of your teeth over time.

Discoloured or yellowish teeth can cause reduced confidence, anxiety, and depression. When a person experiences tooth discomfort, it can make it difficult to speak properly, smile, or eat.

To solve these problems, many dentists recommend in-office teeth whitening. In-office teeth whitening is performed by dental specialists who are educated to provide safe and dependable bleaching outcomes for their patients. Since dentists utilize higher-concentration bleaching gels, the results of in-office whitening performed by a trained professional are typically better than those achieved at home.

With whiter teeth, you will feel more comfortable with your smile and exude a much higher level of self-confidence.

At Burwood Dental Care, we offer in-office teeth whitening services to brighten your smile and improve the overall appearance of your teeth. Teeth whitening can make you feel better about yourself. With our beautiful and natural-looking solution, you can smile while flaunting your white teeth!

The process is quick and straightforward.
In just an hour, the teeth whitening procedure may give you brighter teeth. However, other conditions might require more sessions. Furthermore, the outcomes are consistent and long-lasting. Many over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments have the possibility of failing to whiten your teeth.

You will have a customized treatment according to your needs.
Teeth whitening procedures performed in-office are mainly developed to lessen sensitivity in the teeth. Some over-the-counter treatments are not adaptable to different skin types or conditions. A professional whitening procedure is personalized to provide you with the specific quantity of whiteness that you’re looking for and in the places that need it the most.

You will have thorough whitening that can boost your confidence.
Having a professional dentist perform your teeth whitening can assure you that the procedures are reliable. Having perfectly white teeth can transform your self-esteem and confidence completely. Additionally, you will no longer be self-conscious about your smile because your teeth will look fantastic.

FAQs

Step 1

The first step is the preparation for the whitening procedure, which begins with a professional dental cleaning. Your dentist will remove plaque and hardened tartar from your teeth before the whitening begins. Thorough cleaning of teeth can lead to excellent results from your whitening treatment.

Step 2

After your teeth have been cleaned, we’ll place gauze in your mouth to keep it from becoming too dry. When applied to your teeth, the whitening gel is entirely harmless. Nevertheless, it can irritate the sensitive skin of your lips, face, and gums. The upshot is that retractors will almost certainly be used throughout your treatment for you to be able to relax your jaw while also preventing the sensitive tissues in your mouth from coming into contact with the whitening solution. The protective barrier is also painted onto your gums before the whitening gel is applied to the teeth’s front surfaces. 

Step 3

A specialized laser is shined on your teeth to activate the gel, allowing it to deliver better and faster benefits to you. You can watch television or listen to music while the whitening procedure takes an hour. After your teeth whitening procedure is completed, your teeth will be cleansed, and you will be ready to return home with your newly brightened smile.

Your smile allows you to express your emotions. When your grin does not exude confidence, you may be concerned about the appearance of your teeth. If you are one of the people described below, teeth whitening is for you. 

You have tooth discoloration due to certain beverages and foods or as a result of smoking.

Drinking caffeinated beverages such as coffee and tea, as well as consuming tobacco-containing items, can cause the enamel on your teeth to yellow. In addition to some types of snacks and spices, the structure of the teeth can develop black discolouration or staining. Professional teeth whitening can aid in the removal of these stains, resulting in a more brilliant tone for your teeth as a result.

You’re self-conscious about the way you smile.

When your teeth have lost their radiance, your smile may appear drab and uninteresting. Professional teeth whitening typically brightens tooth enamel by several shades, allowing you to transform your smile from lifeless to dazzling in a far shorter period of time.

Your teeth appear to be becoming more discoloured as you grow older.

As we grow older, the natural sheen of our tooth enamel that was there in our childhood begins to fade, and our grin often takes on a yellow hue as a result. Medical-grade teeth whitening can give you a more youthful appearance.

For a special occasion, you’d like to have a more radiant grin.

For particular occasions, you may prefer to have a brighter and more confident smile on your face. A few examples of significant life events for which you might want to brighten your teeth include graduations, weddings, birthdays, and job interviews.

Sensitive teeth are one of the most prevalent side effects of in-office teeth whitening. This is a short-term negative effect that should subside within a few days of beginning treatment. Here is some advice on how you can take care of your teeth after teeth whitening treatment.

  • Between appointments, you can brush your teeth with toothpaste that has been specially formulated to alleviate tooth sensitivity.
  • You should avoid certain foods for the first 48 hours following your treatment since your teeth will be more susceptible to discoloration than usual. Consume light-colored fruits and vegetables and high-calcium foods such as plain white yogurt.
  • Once the first 48 hours have passed, you can resume eating brightly colored meals, but you should still make every effort to minimize your intake of foods and beverages that are known to stain your teeth.
  • Avoid beverages such as coffee, wine, and sodas. You can use a straw to decrease staining while still allowing you to enjoy a delicious, dark-colored beverage.
  • Brushing your teeth with whitening toothpaste and practicing good oral hygiene can help you fight surface stains and keep your teeth white.
  • Floss your teeth at least twice a day, and use mouthwash at least once a day.

Getting touch-up treatments will also help you keep your teeth whiter longer. In general, we recommend getting a teeth whitening treatment once or twice a year to keep your smile looking bright. If you maintain these routines, you will ensure that your teeth remain white for a longer period of time.

The amount of time between teeth whitening will depend on how you take care of it. Your healthy and white teeth will last longer if you practice good oral hygiene and keep your teeth clean. The average result can last anywhere from six months to three years.

Regular and proper brushing and flossing can help in maintaining your oral hygiene. Things that will quickly discolour your teeth and cause your whitening to be ineffective include smoking, drinking dark beverages like coffee, and eating staining foods like beets and berries.

However, it is essential to keep in mind that stains are unavoidable. Just try to maintain your oral hygiene to maintain your teeth whitening for as long as possible.

The most recommended kind of whitening is an in-office whitening treatment. At your dentist’s office, the whitening gel is applied in a controlled and supervised session. The whitening procedure can take up to one to two hours to complete. The total cost of teeth whitening is around $300. The consultation fee is around $80, the diagnostic methods are around $60, and the bleaching procedure is around $120.

Certain conditions make teeth whitening not the best choice for you. It is important to have your dentist check the condition of your teeth to make sure that you are suitable for this kind of procedure. You can’t have a teeth whitening treatment if you are any of the following:

  • You are pregnant and breastfeeding.
  • You have allergies to whitening components.
  • You have dental sensitivity, fissures, and exposed dentine.
  • You have tooth decay, gum disease, or oral infections.
  • You have existing crowns or large fillings.
  • If you have comorbidities and are taking medications, consult your medical doctor first.
