Teeth Whitening MARSDEN & LOGAN

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can transform the colour of your smile, boosting confidence and giving you a brighter, more youthful look.

 

Crestmead Dental can help you whiten your tooth enamel if it has become yellowed due to medications, smoking, or drinking tea and coffee. Discolouration can also occur due to dental trauma, ageing, tooth decay, and dental fluorosis.

 

Having dull or stained teeth can be a source of insecurity for many people. Fortunately, we have the best solutions at Crestmead Dental to whiten your teeth and keep your smile bright.

Teeth Whitening Options

While over-the-counter whitening toothpastes, strips, and gels can work, it can come at a cost of tooth sensitivity and over-bleaching. All whitening toothpastes contain mild abrasives, which help to remove stains from the enamel, but can leave you feeling sensitive and wear down your natural teeth over time. Some toothpastes and whitening strips contain chemical agents with additional stain removal effectiveness to lighten the tooth’s colour. However, leaving them on for too long or using the wrong quantity can leave you with inconsistent colouring across the teeth and bad tooth sensitivity when eating and drinking.

 

That’s why we always recommend getting your teeth whitened by a professional dentist. At Crestmead Dental, our cosmetic practitioners can perform a whitening treatment to help remove some yellowing colour on your teeth.

 

We offer two kinds of whitening treatment:

In-the-Chair Whitening

This option is hands-off for you: we do all the work. Simply come down to the clinic while we apply the lightening product and let it work its magic.


Between applications, you’re free to check your emails, listen to music, or watch a show on Netflix. Sit back, relax, and leave with a more dazzling smile!

Take-Home Kits

We provide a take-home kit so you can whiten your teeth gradually at home. Your personalised kit will be made using a mould of your natural teeth, which you apply lightening product to and wear for the length of time the instructions tell you. We’ll look out for your progress during your six-monthly check-up appointments.

 

Take-home kits are also a great option to use between in-chair appointments. Keep your teeth brightness topped up between professional applications at home with this professional DIY solution.

Why a Dentist Should Supervise Your Teeth Whitening

Although some people get good results with over-the-counter teeth whitening products, they do not offer the same strength or safety measures as our professional in-chair or take-home kits.

 

When using take-home trays, our dentists make a customised fit for your mouth, leading to better product coverage over your teeth. This also minimises the gel’s contact with gum tissue. Similar products that can be bought in stores don’t give you the same level of personalisation or safety.
