We offer teeth whitening treatments to rejuvenate the appearance of your teeth
Do you wish you had a whiter smile?
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental treatments and using exceptional products, we can offer our patients a sparkling and several shades brighter smile.
Most people want to improve their smile, especially as they get older and staining and other cosmetic complications occur. These aesthetic problems can luckily be corrected and treated with the comprehensive range of cosmetic services available at Mullumbimby Dental Centre.
Deciding what whitening treatment is best for you
During your initial appointment, we will carefully assess the current condition of your oral health whilst assessing your suitability for whitening. The following factors are pivotal to the success of your treatment:
- Gum health
- Existing restorations
- Presence of disease and decay
- Tooth sensitivity and thickness of the enamel
What many patients sometimes don’t realise is that we need to assess the cause of your discolouration. Depending on the nature of your specific stains, teeth whitening may not be successful or the best solution for you. This is why it is important to visit a dentist before purchasing any general whitening treatments.
Professional in-chair teeth whitening ($500 includes take-home kit)
Let us improve the colour of your smile while you relax in the dental chair. During this appointment, we will ensure that your gums are protected with a barrier before applying the whitening gel to your teeth. Once your mouth is prepared the dentist will apply a series of gel applications and you will be able to rest comfortably in our dental chair while the whitening gel works and visibly whitens your smile.
The in-chair whitening process is sometimes preferred by patients as it’s a faster process and our dentists perform every aspect of the treatment in a one-hour appointment with immediate results.
After your treatment, you will also be given a take-home kit at no extra charge to use to top up your smile in the future. This will help you keep your smile looking healthy and white for longer.
Home kit including custom made trays ($260)
We also offer a home kit which requires about five or six 45 minute applications of the whitening gel. As the peroxide gel is weaker no gum protection is required. At the first appointment upper and lower impressions are taken by the dentist, these are used to make the whitening trays. At your second visit, the dentist will check that the trays are comfortable and explain how to use the gel at home. This is a very cost effective way to improve the appearance of your teeth.
