Teeth Whitening Leederville

Teeth whitening is a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any tooth surface.

Why whiten your teeth?

There are many reasons why you might want to get your teeth whitened. Everyone is unique; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people are born with brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we age.

Your teeth can also be stained by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, and blackcurrant. Smoking and the use of other tobacco products can also discolour and stain the teeth.

‘Calculus’ or tartar build-up can also affect the colour of your teeth. Some people may have stains under the enamel surface, which can be caused by certain medications or by tiny cracks in the teeth which absorb stains.

Our Teeth Whitening Service in Leederville

Professional or take home bleaching is the most commonly performed method of teeth whitening. Our dental team in Leederville will be able to assist you in carrying out this procedure.

The ‘active ingredient’ that whitens the teeth is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As this ingredient breaks down, oxygen is absorbed into the enamel on the teeth, and the tooth colour lightens.

How long does this take?

This will be dependent on the method chosen.

You will first need to make an initial appointment to discuss the best option for you. If you are happy to proceed with the take home whitening method then an impression to make the whitening trays can be taken on that visit.

The next appointment will be to collect the whitening trays and gel. The total treatment period for this method is initially about 2 to 3 weeks, for 30 minutes each day.

At-home Care for Whitened Teeth

You can keep your teeth white by limiting the amount of staining food and beverages you consume. Don’t forget, stopping smoking and using other tobacco products can also help prevent discolouration and staining.

Following these tips will help you take care of your teeth:

  • Brush your teeth before sleeping at night and at least one other time during the day, using fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles.
  • Limit sugary foods and drinks intake.
  • Visit your Leederville dental team regularly, as often as recommended.

Frequently Asked
Questions

How long will my teeth stay white?

With proper care, the effects of teeth whitening last up to two years. However, this will vary from person to person. The effect is likely to last longer if you don’t smoke and limit the intake of products that can discolour your teeth. Ask your Leederville dentist for their opinion before you start the treatment.

Why do my teeth get sensitive while whitening?

Following teeth whitening, tooth sensitivity is a potential side effect frequently brought on by the bleaching agent used to whiten teeth.

Whitening gels temporarily increase the permeability of your tooth enamel, revealing the sensitive dentin layer covering the nerves in your teeth. Your teeth may be subjected to forces from some teeth whitening trays, temporarily making them sensitive.
