The dentists and hygienists at Adelaide City Dental Care are up to date with the best and safest techniques for teeth whitening. We ensure the best teeth whitening program is customised to your teeth and situation. Our most popular teeth whitening treatment is one which is performed in the comfort of your own home. It is a flexible treatment option which works around your availabilities, commitment and treatment outcome needs.
Can anyone whiten their teeth?
We are seeing more and more people whiten their teeth. The only limit to teeth whitening is making sure your teeth and gums are healthy before committing to undertaking whitening, and natural teeth of course!! We see more and more older patients whitening their teeth after a lifetime of stain accumulation has discoloured their teeth. It is not “just for the young ones” as the lovely white, smiling photos would have you believe. We do caution patients with existing sensitivity they may need to perform some teeth desensitising prior to bleaching, as sensitivity management is an important part of teeth whitening.
What is involved in teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening requires an assessment by the dentist to ensure your teeth can be safely whitened. This involves an examination of the teeth and soft tissues of your mouth to ensure the peroxide will not cause you any problems. We will then take impressions of your teeth for our laboratory technicians to construct custom bleaching trays for your teeth. These trays are very small and are an exact fit to your teeth, minimising the bleaching material contacting your gums.
We will then set aside time to show you how to use the bleaching material, check you can use the trays and provide you with all of the materials you require for treatment. This really is a simple whitening solution you will be away in no time. We will also take a shade registration to measure the colour change of your teeth over the duration of the whitening treatment.
What makes a professional whitening agent better?
At Adelaide City Dental Care, we use a locally made product which has a high success rate, high patient acceptance and meets our stringent quality assessment criteria. We prefer SDI’s Pola Day product as it is produced with inbuilt soothers and tooth conditioners to provide optimum comfort throughout the whitening process. The percentage of peroxide in each Pola syringe is greater than any of the over-the-counter type products which tend to only whiten for a very brief period of time. The Pola Day percentage is however, 6% which makes it safe for home use, but effective. Click on the following link for more information about Pola products.
