Due to diet and daily lifestyle, staining your teeth is often unavoidable. Fortunately, tooth discolouration is one of the easiest cosmetic dental problems to treat. That is why tooth whitening has become a very popular cosmetic dental treatment. People want to make sure that their precious smile is not only notably healthy but also stunningly white. Having whiter teeth makes a great difference for your emotional and physical well-being, and the best way to achieve this is to have a professional teeth whitening procedure supervised by your expert Sunshine Coast dentist.
The Downside of Over-the-counter Teeth Whitening Products
You may have tried over-the-counter whiteners such as whitening toothpaste, strips and rinses. You may have spent a lot of money buying those products, and yet, it left you disappointed with the results. Teeth whitening products that can be bought at the store can take several weeks or even months before you see any whitening effects. If the results start to appear, your teeth may only be a little bit lighter.
Over-the-counter whiteners are less effective in whitening your teeth due to their low-quality ingredients. They contain very low levels of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. If you are looking for a safe and effective tooth whitening system that offers true results, you must consult your cosmetic dentist in Sunshine Coast to get treatments that contain high-quality bleaching formulas.
Professional Teeth Whitening
There are two ways to brighten your precious smile in Sunshine Coast:
In-office Teeth Whitening
For fast whitening results, you may undergo teeth whitening procedure done at our dental clinic and see the outcome of your treatment immediately. Your dentist will use a peroxide-based whitening gel that takes effect upon contact with your teeth. Your teeth can be whitened to up to eight shades lighter in just a short span of time. A bleaching solution is applied to your teeth, and a special light may be utilised to boost the action of the formula while whitening the teeth. This procedure may need more than one appointment, and each visit may take 30 to 60 minutes.
Take-home Teeth Whitening
If you want to whiten your teeth at home, you may opt for a take-home whitening kit. Though not as fast as the in-office procedure, a take-home kit can provide optimal whitening results in a week or two. The kit involves a custom-made tray to fit your mouth perfectly and hold the whitening gel on your teeth. Your dentist in Sunshine Coast will provide complete instructions and guidelines on how to use the product correctly to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the take-home teeth whitening kit.
