“We strive to perform even the simplest of procedures with the highest level of care. Practicing good dentistry isn’t simply about the end result; it’s about the process.”
— Dr Matt Parsons
At Mullumbimby Dental Centre, we want to help you maintain your smile and offer a top up of your whitening gel when you return for a general check-up.
There are a number of different things that can cause your teeth to change in colour, or become stained. Below you’ll find some of the biggest contributors to tooth discolouration:
All of these things in moderation are fine, however, if you are consuming large amounts without practicing proper oral hygiene, your teeth will be affected. By visiting a dentist, you can get an accurate diagnosis of your tooth discolouration and the best treatment.
At Mullumbimby Dental Centre we offer two different types of teeth whitening options for our patients.
This is a one-hour professional teeth whitening treatment that is performed by one of our dental professionals in the comfort of our modern dental practice. It is a fast, simple and often remarkably effective treatment that helps to whiten your teeth dramatically.Our in practice treatment is completely harmless to tooth enamel, composites and all other dental work.
We also offer teeth whitening kits that you can perform in the comfort of your own home. We will take impressions of your teeth so that we can fabricate custom-made trays for you. You will use these trays to apply our professional teeth whitening solution to the teeth for one hour per day. This method is much more gradual than the in-surgery whitening, but eventually it will achieve the same result. You will begin to see a noticeable difference within 1-2 weeks though this time frame will vary depending on the patient’s teeth.
Arrange a consultation with one of our dental professionals and they will be able to assess the state of your teeth, identify any sensitivity, determine enamel thickness and assess any previous restorations which might have an impact on the effectiveness of the treatment.
