Sometimes all it takes is a whiter and brighter smile to make a big difference to your confidence. If you have stained and discoloured teeth that make you feel self-conscious, Chapel Gate Dental can help you whiten and brighten your teeth with our safe, effective and non-invasive laser teeth whitening treatments. Tooth whitening is a relatively easy and painless way of enhancing your smile, and the team at Chapel Gate Dental are capable of carrying out the procedure and providing the best advice.
Our dentists are qualified to advise you on all things tooth whitening. As with any dental procedure, an examination of your teeth is necessary before the procedure to assess your specific circumstances and requirements. Our teeth whitening clinic proudly offers both “Zoom” in-chair whitening and “Pola” home whitening.
Our Zoom! in chair teeth whitening in St Kilda is an ideal cosmetic solution to fix:
This is a procedure that’s becoming more popular as people start taking better care of their teeth and wish to have the most beautiful smile possible. The procedure involves a bleaching process, in which a special gel is placed on the teeth and activated by a special light, which acts as a catalyst for the bleach to lighten and brighten the teeth. The gel is applied to your tooth enamel and your teeth are isolated during the procedure to protect your mouth, gums and lips. This is a safe, effective and comfortable process that can brighten your teeth up to eight shades. The process, including taking an impression for your home maintenance kit, takes about two hours, and you’re free to relax while the treatment is in progress.
Laser teeth whitening can effectively treat yellow or discoloured teeth. Results are visible and immediate using the laser and are often enough to satisfy patients’ aesthetic needs. Please note if tooth discoloration is severe, such as in cases of fluorosis or antibiotic staining, tooth whitening alone may not be enough and veneering the teeth may be required.
Bear in mind that teeth whitening isn’t permanent. A touch-up might be needed from time to time, especially if you smoke, drink coffee or red wine, or eat foods that contain turmeric or food colour.
Our teeth whitening in St Kilda is suitable for most people. Teeth whitening procedures only work on natural tooth enamel, so it’s important to evaluate the replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching to match the newly bleached teeth.
Our teeth whitening clinic also offers POLA professional home teeth whitening bleaching kits. We fabricate custom tooth whitening trays to fit over your teeth and then supply you with a professional grade tooth whitening solution to carry out the teeth whitening procedure in the comfort of your own home. Although the home teeth whitening delivers results over a longer period of time, it gives you more control over the frequency and pace of the procedure to minimise sensitivity.
Patients can also choose to combine in chair tooth whitening with at home whitening. This enables you to maintain your beautiful white smile and top it up whenever you want.
