Tooth Whitening that can be done at Home.

An effective alternative to the ZOOM one hour whitening system is using a professional take home system such as those that we offer at The Dental Practice.

The advantage of take home systems is the convenience of being able to whiten your teeth at your leisure while relaxing at home.

What does the process involve?

The first step involves coming into our clinic and having a cosmetic assessment made on your teeth. This is important to make sure you select the correct whitening products and to ensure you have been given the best options.

Next, we make custom trays which fit your mouth exactly. This means, not only does the whitening gel adhere to your teeth evenly and efficiently, but the trays will be comfortable, easy to use and hardly visible to see.

Our experienced staff will show you how to load the trays with the whitening gel and you're ready to begin!

We recommend wearing the trays for only 2 or 3 hours each night. The whole process usually only requires 8 to 12 nights (depending on what result you want and how badly stained your teeth are. For extremely heavily stained teeth such as antibiotic stains, repeated applications are needed).

How does this compare to other whitening products, such as those purchased from pharmacies or supermarkets?

We believe that before any tooth whitening is done you need to consult a dentist first. Sometimes tooth whitening without consultation can result in your teeth looking worse, that is why it is important to seek advise from a dental team who does a lot of cosmetic treatment such as ourselves.

Off the shelf products such as paint on liquids and application strips do whiten your teeth to some degree, but to get the best looking results a professional tooth whitening system (such as Professional Take Home or Zoom In-Chair Whitening) is required. Supervision by your dental team is essential when you want the best looking teeth!

Often we end up doing a professional whitening treatment on people who have tried off-the-shelf products because they have been unhappy with the results.

If you have any questions about tooth whitening please don't hesitate to call us.
