In Chair Teeth Whitening In Narre Warren

Many people are concerned about showing their smiles because of yellow teeth. You may probably have tried out different whitening products, but stubborn stains remain on your teeth. It can be frustrating and even affect your confidence. Fortunately, there are many ways to make your teeth whiter, including in-chair whitening at Narre Warren Dental Care.

What Is In Chair Teeth Whitening?

In-chair teeth whitening is a non-invasive dental treatment that removes stains from the pores of the teeth and brightens the colour of natural tooth enamel, resulting in the appearance of whiter teeth.

In-office teeth whitening involves the application of a high concentration of bleach to the teeth. The bleaching agent is then activated with a UV light, often known as “laser whitening.” It is the most convenient dental treatment for whitening teeth and eliminating or minimising stains and discolouration.

Having your teeth whitened under the guidance of a dentist is the safest method of teeth whitening. Rubber and gauze seals protect your gum line and lips from the effects of bleach. In addition, the dentist will monitor you during your teeth whitening procedure.

Benefits of In Chair Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening has become a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in Australia. One of the options is in-chair whitening. There are numerous advantages to receiving in-office teeth whitening. Not only are your teeth professionally whitened by an experienced dentist, but the results are quicker to achieve and more convenient.

Proper Assessment: 

The advantage of seeing your dentist first is that they will evaluate your teeth to determine the best technique to restore the radiance to your smile. Only a dental professional is equipped to examine your teeth and recommend the best whitening treatment for you. 

Pre-existing oral conditions like tooth sensitivity, decay, cavities, enamel thickness, receding gums, and other oral conditions will be checked for and taken into account by your dentist. If you have crowns, fillings, or other dental restorations, your dentist will tailor your whitening treatment to your specific needs, as these restorations generally do not respond to whitening treatments. 

Convenient & Fast Results:

Dentists often apply whitening treatments with higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide than over-the-counter or at-home products. This ensures that results can be achieved in a single 60-minute dental treatment.

Generally, in-office teeth whitening prep and treatment may take no more than 1 to 2 hours from the time you sit in the dental chair. Depending on the whitening treatment option and the amount of bleaching your teeth need or can handle in a single session,

Safe: 

Since a professional dentist can perform in-chair whitening, these procedures are relatively safe. We use a rubber shield to avoid the whitening product touching your gums. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products in Australia are well controlled and should not harm your oral health. But, if you use them for an extended period or incorrectly apply them to your teeth, there is a high risk of causing irreversible damage to both your teeth and gums.

Better  Results: 

A dental professional can better match the types of stains with the appropriate treatments to get better results. In-chair teeth whitening can also last longer with proper care.

Teeth whitening will only remove intrinsic and extrinsic stains from natural teeth. It is also only a temporary solution (but may last a few months to years). The degree of whiteness varies from person to person depending on the health of the teeth and the type of whitening technique utilized. Teeth whitening is also not advised for pregnant or nursing women.

Teeth whitening is often not recommended if you:

  • Tobacco smoking or use of tobacco products
  • Suffer from tooth sensitivity.
  • Severe tooth discolouration.

A dentist will determine whether teeth whitening is a good treatment option for you. Consult with our dentist now to get information about teeth whitening options and whether in-chair whitening may be suitable for you.

  • Professional teeth whitening

In-chair whitening is a simple, non-invasive process that employs bleaching agents such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to whiten your stained, discoloured teeth. Since a dentist does the treatment, we can apply a stronger solution with more active ingredients to get a more effective result in a much shorter time frame than at-home whitening. It is also more successful at removing stubborn stains. The cost may be higher than for at-home treatments, something that you should consider. A higher solution may also cause your teeth to become sensitive, so the take-home treatment may be preferable if you already have sensitive teeth.

  • Take-home whitening

At Narre Warren Dental Care, we provide a take-home teeth whitening kit. You only need to schedule a 30-minute appointment for dental impressions to be submitted to the lab. After two days, you can pick up your whitening trays and begin the treatment at home. Take-home whitening is a less expensive option. Unlike in-chair whitening, it will take a while to attain a good outcome. 

For brighter teeth, discipline and proper application of the whitening solution are necessary. It often involves using it every day for two to four weeks; thus, it requires time management on the user’s part. If you have a busy schedule, the in-chair treatment would be more convenient. If you have deeper stains on your teeth, we would also recommend the in-chair procedure.

If you’re considering teeth whitening, you can feel confident that it’s a highly safe process. Like every chemical we use, a whiter smile comes with a list of potential adverse effects linked to teeth whitening products.

Most teeth whitening products have temporary tooth sensitivity and mild irritation of the gums. Teeth may become sensitive during the treatment. A poorly fitting mouthpiece tray is most likely to cause tissue irritation rather than the tooth-bleaching agent. 

Generally, teeth whitening may last from six months to three years. The effectiveness of tooth whitening is determined by the type of bleaching agent used, and your lifestyle can also have an impact. 

Tooth whitening procedures are intended to reduce stains rather than to resist them. At-home products and teeth whitening will last longer if you practise good oral hygiene and keep your teeth clean regularly. On the other hand, individuals who often consume staining foods and beverages and use tobacco products may expect to notice the whiteness begin to fade as early as one month. 

The degree of whiteness varies depending on the condition of the teeth, the extent of discolouration, and the type of bleaching used.

Stains or discolouration of teeth have various causes. There are two types of stains, namely, extrinsic and intrinsic stains.

Extrinsic stains include the list of staining foods and beverages such as coffee, red wine, tea, and red sauces. In contrast, intrinsic stains come from lifestyle, medical conditions, or medications. These may include poor dental hygiene, smoking, chewing tobacco products, old dental restorations, antibiotics like tetracycline, ageing, and genetic factors.

The cost of teeth whitening differs according to the type of treatment you choose. The expense can also be affected by your location, dentist’s fee, and the extent of discolouration.

According to the annual survey of the Australian Dental Association, the average cost of in-house teeth whitening in Victoria, Australia, is $70.85 per tooth. In addition, generally speaking, the average cost of professional in-chair whitening can cost up to $260 per tooth in Australia.
