Teeth Whitening Townsville
With so many teeth whitening products available, what do our experienced dentists think are the best ways to whiten your teeth?
Why would I need my teeth whitened?
A person’s decision to have teeth whitening treatment is personal. Much like the rest of your body, your teeth are totally unique to you and just as your hair and skin colour varies, so too does the colour of your teeth. Not many people are born with sparkling white teeth and even if they were, the passing of time and the colourants in the foods and drinks we consume are constantly staining our teeth. If you are someone that values an aesthetically pleasing smile, teeth whitening treatments may just be for you.
How long does teeth whitening take?
Teeth whitening treatments can usually be completed within about three to four weeks, but you may need to pay us a few visits before you before we can start your treatment as will need to take impressions of your smile so that we can create your custom-made mouthpiece so that your treatment is spread equally amongst all your teeth. Once you have started your treatment, you will be applying your teeth whitening product for 30 minutes a day over a 2-4-week period.
What does teeth whitening treatment involve?
Teeth whitening is the removal of stains inside the tooth, to lead to a sparkling whiter smile. The active ingredient in teeth whitening treatments is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These active ingredients start a kind of chain reaction where oxygen is released into the enamel of your teeth and begin breaking down the molecules of the stains.
