Teeth Whitening at Artarmon Dentists

Before and after teeth whiteningShowing off brighter teeth has come into fashion in recent years. A whiter smile gives you a more youthful, refreshed appearance and can restore your confidence. Teeth whitening is a procedure that involves the removal of stains embedded in the surface of your teeth. It makes a chemical change in your teeth so that they reflect light differently, giving them a whiter appearance.

Artarmon Dentists provides you with professional-grade teeth whitening. In our clinic, you’ll be monitored the whole time for your safety. You’ll find that our whitening is highly effective, much more so than the kits you can purchase at the chemist.

A Two-Step Process

We recommend a combination of in-chair whitening and a home kit that allows you to maintain your results. The kits at the chemist have a lower concentration of whitening power. The ones you can purchase from a dentist are stronger and more likely to give your teeth dramatic changes.

We provide kits that will allow your teeth to maintain their whiteness long after your initial appointment. They’re easy to use and comfortable to wear, completed in the comfort of your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you use a blue light to accelerate the whitening?

We use the AMD Picasso Dental Laser. It’s nothing like the blue lights you’ll see in supermarket whitening stalls. The whitening agent is first applied to your tooth. Applying the laser accelerates the chemical reaction that changes the top layer of your tooth. The result is a bigger change in colour and the results afterwards.

Does having your teeth whitened cause sensitivity?

Some people report having sensitive teeth after having their teeth whitened. Usually, the sensitivity is temporary and will abate after one or two days.

How can I maintain my results?

There are many foods and drinks rich in colour that can stain your teeth. These include chocolate, curry, coffee, tea and red wine. Avoid these and you’ll show off a brighter smile without having to complete a whitening procedure. Smoking is a tremendous contributor to staining your teeth. If you’re interested in quitting, we’ll provide you with some resources.

Will whitening affect my fillings?

Teeth whitening works only on natural teeth. Restorations such as crowns, fillings or veneers will not be affected.

What is the cost for teeth whitening?

The costs vary depending on the results you wish to achieve. To get a more accurate number, schedule a consultation. An approximation is $300-$1000 for in-chair whitening and a take-home kit for $20-$600.
