Teeth Whitening in Chatswood NSW
Is your smile as bright as it’s always been? Or has it grown duller and less white over the years?
Tea, coffee and red wine can all cause a smile to lose its lustre. Certain medications can also affect the appearance of your smile, and tobacco use is another common culprit. Having teeth that start to look yellow is also a natural part of the ageing process.
Chatswood Dental Associates in Chatswood, NSW uses the latest dental whitening technology to offer our patients a simple, safe and effective method for creating a lighter, brighter smile. In just a little more than an hour’s time, your teeth could be several shades whiter and brighter. We hope you’ll love showing off your new smile—and as we all know, smiles can be contagious.
What Happens at a Teeth Whitening Appointment?
At our Chatswood, NSW dental clinic, we use Philips Zoom professional teeth whitening because we like the results it provides best.
Before we even get started, we’ll protect your gums so the whitening gel only touches your teeth—not the soft tissues of your mouth. Then we’ll put the professional-strength whitening gel on the teeth and use a special blue light to help speed up the whitening effect. We may repeat this process up to four times to help you get the maximum results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
During the in-chair whitening procedure, people who have a strong gag reflex might struggle a bit during treatment. If you let us know in advance that you are concerned about this issue, we will do all we can to minimise any discomfort.
People who purchase over-the-counter whitening products in shops often report that they feel sensitivity after they use these products. Because we do our best to protect your gums (we only apply the whitening gel to the teeth) most of our patients report little sensitivity after treatment.
How Can I Keep My Teeth White?
Refresh your smile with a Philips Zoom in-chair treatment every year or two as needed. It’s also a good idea to take care of your oral hygiene.
- Brush twice and floss once a day—and especially after eating and drinking teeth-staining foods and beverages.
- Visit your Chatswood, NSW dentist twice a year for check-ups and cleans.
- Cut back on teeth-staining drinks such as coffee, tea and red wine, rinsing your mouth with water if you do imbibe.
Are You Ready for a New Smile?
Teeth whitening can help restore the bright, white teeth of your youth. If you have an upcoming special occasion, such as a wedding, reunion, or job interview, why not go with the increased self-confidence that can come with feeling like your smile has improved because of professional teeth whitening?
Because the whitening process tends to be more effective after a professional dental clean, we recommend that you undergo the whitening process soon afterward. To learn more about Philips Zoom or to arrange your cleaning and teeth whitening session, please call our Chatswood, NSW dental clinic.
