Teeth Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services performed by Australian dentists. Dentists in our clinics in Melbourne perform teeth whitening procedures frequently as we developed a reputation of excellence and professionalism in performing the best, safest and most effective teeth whitening procedures delivering amazing results.
People opt for teeth whitening to restore the natural white tooth colour. Patients often present with stained teeth, yellow or brown teeth that have been subjected to wear and tear over the years causing them to lose the natural white colour.
Diet and smoking are the most common causes for teeth discolouration, aslo known as yellow teeth. Coffee, tea, fizzy soft drinks and smoking can have negative, yet visible, effects on teeth. Even if oral hygiene practices are applied, teeth can still be affected if the patient’s diet includes excessive amounts of unhealthy foods or is a smoker. Teeth whitening is the solution for yellow or dull teeth as it can restore the original white teeth colour and reinstate a radiant smile.
What is Teeth Whitening and How It Works.
Essentially, teeth whitening is a procedure that is aimed at restoring the natural colour of your teeth. Cases of teeth discolouration vary. Some patients present with even discolouration where all teeth are affected while others present with stained teeth in particular areas or spots. In all cases, proper application and performance of teeth whitening should achieve even and consistent colour restoration. This relies heavily on the knowledge and skill of the dentist performing the procedure as well as the material used for the treatment.
All common teeth whitening products are basically peroxide type of bleach. There two common forms of peroxide bleaches, Hydrogen Peroxide (HP) and Carbamide Peroxide (CP). At BlueSpa Dental we, as well as the leading scientists and dental professionals world-wide, believe that the HP based bleach is more gentle, safe and effective. We use as close to neutral HP agent as possible which minimises the chance of affecting teeth enamel. There are a number of products that are promoted by outlets and online that claim to produce whitening results, however, consumers must carefully assess the harshness of these substances and potential effect they have on their teeth.
Assessment and Check Up Before Teeth Whitening.
This procedure requires the application of comically constructed materials, therefore a thorough check must be carried out by the dentist to assess your suitability for the procedure. In other words, is teeth whitening safe for you? On assessing your suitability for teeth whitening, our dentists will look into some areas including gum line and gum health, tooth decay, oral disease, teeth sensitivity, quality of the teeth enamel, any veneers, fillings or crowns, diet, age, the degree of teeth discolouration and any other oral health issues and history. In most cases, patients are suitable candidates for this treatment. However, in a small number of cases, other treatments may need to be performed before teeth whitening is carried out.
Potential Risks of Teeth Whitening.
Our dentists assess each every patient before deciding to proceed with teeth whitening. This is a crucial step to ensure, as much as possible, that applying this treatment is unlikely to have unwanted health risks. Generally, the treatment is safe once it is assessed to be safe by our dentists. The material we use adds another layer of safety to the procedure as it works to tackle discolouration and stains, yet are gentle on less harsh on the teeth enamel, gum and mouth.
Using the wrong, uncertified or harsh peroxide bleach for teeth whitening can result in serious health issues including :
- Damaged tooth enamel.
- Mismatch, inconsistent and uneven teeth colours.
- Teeth sensitivity and pain.
- Irritation, blistering and pain in the gum and mouth tissue.
- Digestive problems.
- Stomach and digestive system bleeding.
Therefore, if you are considering the cosmetic dentistry procedure of teeth whitening, it is extremely important that you contact us and attend to our clinics for an assessment to decide whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
