Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a fast and effective way to lighten the natural colour of your teeth by up to eight shades. Over time our teeth will discolour both naturally and through various lifestyle choices. Alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, beetroot, tomato sauce and other substances can all contribute to the discolouration of our teeth. However, tooth whitening represents a way to combat these effects and achieve a brighter, whiter smile. At Sandy Bay Dental Centre we offer two whitening options to cater to all our patients.

In-chair whitening is applied by a dentist and complete in around 90 minutes. This is the ideal option for those patients with a special event looming such as a wedding or birthday. This option requres two appointments. The first is used to determine if you are a suitable candidate and the procedure will then be explained so you know what to expect. This will take around 15 minutes. The second appointment is the completion of the procedure taking around 90 minutes.

Our second whitening option is the specialised take-home whitening kit. This treatment options can be applied in the convenience of your own home, over the course of around 2 weeks. As a slightly cheaper option, this is ideal for patients who cannot make it into the practice for a 90 minutes session and wish to whiten their teeth in their own time.

With your results in mind a dentist will need to examine your teeth prior to any whitening procedure to ensure that you are an eligible candidate. For further information on whitening or to arrange a consultation contact our caring team and give yourself a white, healthy smile.
