Teeth Whitening

If you have been using over-the-counter (OTC) teeth whitening products with disappointing results, it may be time to consider the professional teeth whitening option.

There are many types of OTC whitening products on the market, from whitening toothpaste, whitening strips to take-home bleaching kits. However, not only do results vary significantly from product to product – meaning you are often clueless as to which ones work and which do not – they usually involve a time-consuming and rigid application process to achieve visible results, if at all.

At Molonglo Dental Surgery, our cosmetic dentist utilises a technologically advanced teeth whitening system that has the ability to achieve up to 10 shades lighter in a session that takes approximately 1.5 hours. That means in about the amount of time it takes you to enjoy a cup of coffee, you can walk in and out of our clinic with a brand new gleaming smile.

We offer Laser In-Chair Whitening, one of the most popular forms of professional teeth whitening due to its ability to achieve fast-acting and dramatic results. This advanced whitening procedure combines the use of a special whitening gel and high-intensity light to produce the desired bleaching effect.

If you are looking for safe, effective and comfortable professional teeth whitening, give our friendly team at Molonglo Dental Surgery a ring on 02 6287 1222.

Why is Professional In-Chair Teeth Whitening important?

That many self-administered whitening products fail to deliver visible results usually boils down to several things: The type of discolouration you have, the content of bleaching agent and the application protocols.

These variable factors are way more controlled and predictable when teeth whitening is being administered by a professional cosmetic dentist who employs advanced proven techniques within a safe clinical environment.

The clinician is in a better position to assess the type of discolouration you have. There are certain types of discolouration that cannot be removed by teeth whitening procedures. If that is the case, the dentist may recommend other cosmetic treatments such as Dental Veneers. Prior to the whitening procedure, the dentist can determine whether you would make a suitable candidate through an evaluative oral investigation.

The dentist would also start the session by cleaning your teeth to remove some trapped food deposits which may hinder the whitening process. Where necessary, your teeth may also receive a good polish to achieve a more profound whitening effect.

Everyone’s teeth shade and type are different, so it also helps that the dentist is able to adjust the potency of the bleaching agent according to what is necessary. It is possible to over- or under-whiten your teeth, in relation to the colour of your gums and even facial complexion.

Compared to OTC products, the type of bleaching gels that only dentists are allowed to administer contain a more concentrated level of active ingredients that produce better overall whitening effect. For your safety, these are controlled products that only dental professionals can administer in the safety of their clinical environment, using protective gear and materials.

Finally, the biggest benefit of professional whitening must be its speed and efficiency. Professional teeth whitening is often the superior option if you prefer faster results with more predictable and safer outcomes. For comparison’s sake, professional in-chair teeth whitening typically achieves whitening results in about an hour while take-home whitening kits require up to 1-2 months of regular application.
