Teeth Whitening at Blockhouse Bay Dental Centre

Have you dreamed of gaining a brighter smile? If you’re unhappy with the shade of your teeth, Blockhouse Bay Dental Centre can provide a simple and painless treatment to whiten your teeth in less than an hour’s time. The methods we offer include the cutting-edge Zoom system professional-grade take-home kits.

Before and after teeth whiteningYour teeth can become discoloured for numerous reasons:

  • Aging
  • Medications taken in childhood
  • The intake of coffee, tea or staining foods
  • Tobacco use
  • Trauma

Though there are over-the-counter bleaching kits, the trays aren’t custom-fitted. Without a snug fit, the bleach won’t adhere to the teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is involved in having teeth whitening done?

If you’re having your whitening process completed at our practice, you’ll have a single appointment and see your results instantly. If you choose to do it at home, we’ll take impressions of your mouth and create customised trays. You’ll apply the whitening agent to them and wear the trays for 30 minutes, twice a day. In 3-4 days, you’ll start noticing a difference, with your final results occurring 10-14 days afterwards.

Is it safe to whiten teeth?

Consumer trials and extensive research back that professional teeth whitening systems are safe. We do not advise you to whiten your teeth if you’re pregnant. About 1 out of 10 people feel that their teeth are sensitive to cold during the procedure, but it is only temporary. If you have experienced sensitive teeth, let us know beforehand so that we can make a change to the procedure and give you a desensitising agent.

How long does teeth whitening last?

You’ll see the whiteness you’ve achieved fading after 2-3 years. You can top up your results easily with your original trays and remaining bleaching material, as it has a shelf life of about four years.

Will teeth whitening work for me?

Some deep discolouration in the enamel may not change during the whitening process. Your old fillings and porcelain restorations can’t whiten. When we assess you, we’ll advise you on whether you’re a candidate and the results you can expect to achieve.
