What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a treatment that uses bleaching products to lighten the colour of your teeth. It can also create a whiter appearance for your entire smile.
Over the years, it is normal for your teeth to discolour and stain. Everyday activities such as dietary and social habits can have a significant effect on the colour of teeth.
Foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, berries, and wine can lead to tooth discolouration. Smoking and certain medications can also affect the colour of your teeth.
Teeth Whitening Treatments
Our Coastal Dental Care practices offer Philips Zoom! in-chair teeth whitening. This treatment has been proven to whiten teeth up by up to eight shades.
The treatment process is quite straightforward. A high strength whitening (hydrogen peroxide) gel is applied to the teeth and broken down by a LED heat lamp. This allows oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin to remove stains or discolouration without damaging teeth. In general, you can expect treatment to take between 60 minutes to 1.5 hours.
Our practices offer Zoom whitening, which includes a take-home whitening kit with custom-made trays. If you require a scale and clean prior to the whitening treatment, additional charges will be incurred.
Hismile Teeth Whitening
We’ve partnered with Hismile to bring our patients the future of teeth whitening, (available at selected Coastal Dental Care practices). Using the new PAP+ formula, these in-chair treatments offer a revolutionary approach to professional teeth whitening.
This treatment is distinguished from regular peroxide-based teeth whitening methods based on its innovative PAP+ formula that targets tooth stains without causing sensitivity or the regular side effects that have been known to follow teeth whitening treatments.
The PAP+ whitening process offers a streamlined treatment avoiding the use of a gum shield and consisting of three 15 minute sessions, allowing you to achieve your most natural tooth shade in under an hour. Throughout the treatment, Hismile’s VIO405 light will be used to accelerate the whitening process and maximise patient comfort with its adjustable settings.
Once your treatment is complete, you’ll be taking more than a brighter smile home with you. All in-chair PAP+ treatments include a complimentary smilecare pack consisting of a range of Hismile products to maintain your bright new smile at home.
Alternatively, our practices may offer other types of take-home whitening kits as well.
