Teeth Whitening Perth
Are you missing some sparkle in your smile?
Zoom In-chair Light Activated Whitening
Let's face it. Yellow teeth aren't attractive. Discolouration of teeth is a common problem that occurs most often with the natural aging process and or staining from lifestyle factors such as smoking or drinking coffee, tea or wine.
Whiter teeth catch our attention and appeal to most people. They radiate confidence, health and youthfulness. With professional teeth whitening, you don’t have to let the colour of your teeth give away your age.
A brighter, natural smile is easy to achieve
Professional teeth whitening is simple, safe and effective. It is the number one most requested cosmetic dental procedure at Sparkle Dental, and we’ve had a history of delighted patients and great results.
Choosing a system can be confusing with the vast array of tooth whitening products available. We make it easy by offering 2 different systems with proven clinical success.
Our featured whitening systems
Zoom In Chair whitening is an in-office procedure which whitens your smile in just one visit. Whitening gel is carefully applied to your teeth and activated with a gentle blue light for four 15 minute cycles.
Zoom WhiteSpeed uses a gentle blue LED light, and is the only in-office system that has variable intensity setting so each treatment can be customized to maximize patient comfort. The system also includes desensitizers to help minimize sensitivity and protect your enamel. This dentist-supervised, in-office procedure is safe, effective and clinically proven to whiten up to eight shades—for a brighter, whiter smile in just one office visit.
A patient post care and maintenance kit will be provided on completion of treatment. These kits include a syringe of Relief ACP to help manage sensitivity and Zoom At-Home whitening maintenance.
Zoom At-Home Whitening
With at-home whitening, moulds or impressions are taken of your teeth and used to make a custom-fitted tray. These trays are thin, clear and fit snuggly on your teeth. They are filled with whitening gel and worn overnight.
The most common solution prescribed at our office is Zoom Nite White which contains 16% carbamide peroxide. The solution also contains amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) which has been shown to deliver enamel protection and help reduce sensitivity. Compared to teeth whitened without it, ACP helps improve the luster and smoothness of teeth.
Your brighter, whiter smile can be achieved in as little as 3 nights of wear, with the average user whitening for 4-5 nights.
We offer a complimentary shade assessment and whitening consult to discuss the results you can expect to achieve.
How white will my teeth go?
Whilst professional whitening systems can deliver an average of 6-8 shades of improvement, the end result does vary from person to person.
In general if your teeth are yellow, they will be easier to whiten. Grey teeth are harder to whiten. Some people have teeth that are intrinsically yellow and in their case it will be harder to achieve a dazzling white smile. During our complimentary shade assessment and whitening consult we can advise you about what you can reasonably expect.
Whilst not everyone can achieve a Hollywood smile, nearly everyone can benefit from professional grade whitening and it almost always will provide a noticeable improvement in tooth shade.
Will teeth whitening make my fillings, crowns and other dental work whiter?
Tooth whitening will only work on your natural teeth and will not affect any of your dental work. One thing to consider if you have dental work on your front teeth is that after whitening there may be a substantial difference between their colour and the colour of your natural teeth.
If you wish to brighten your smile, whitening your teeth is a great starting point prior to updating the dental work so they can be made whiter to match the rest of your teeth.
How long can I expect whitening results to last?
How long your result will last is dependent on lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking tea, coffee or red wine or any highly coloured food and drinks, and personal plaque control.
On average you can expect to have whiter teeth for 6-9 months, however results can simply be maintained with 1 or 2 nights application of whitening gel from your home kit as required.
Is professional whitening safe?
In the absence of dental disease, professional tooth whitening is safe for your tooth enamel, fillings and dental work. Since it is applied by a dentist or within custom fitted trays, the whitening gels will not be swallowed or come into contact with the gums lip or tongue.
This is in contrast to the application of whitening agents in beauty salons or over-the-counter kits, which aren’t as safe to apply. These agents must be used in much lower concentrations of whitening agent, which tend not to be as effective, and often lead to disappointment.
Is it true that teeth whitening causes sensitivity?
Teeth whitening may cause transient sensitivity. This varies depending on the person and is minimised through the careful selection of the whitening systems we offer.
Sensitivity tends to occur more with the extended time involved with home whitening. The majority of these patients manage well after they stop the treatment and feel that this is a small price to pay for the dramatic results.
If you experience any pain of discomfort, it is best to discontinue treatment and ask your dentist for advice.
Can I whiten my teeth during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding?
It is generally recommended to avoid whitening as there is not enough research to determine the safety of teeth whitening agents in these situations.
Can I whiten my teeth while I have untreated cavities or gum problems?
It is advisable to first treat your cavities and/or gum problems and whiten your teeth after that to prevent abnormal sensitivity. Since most dental problems are non painful and most people are often unaware they exist until there is pain or an emergency, a dental examination to assess for these is always a good idea.
Why should I have my teeth professionally cleaned before whitening?
Professional cleaning removes all the hardened plaque (or calculus) from your teeth and under your gum line. Aside from causing, bleeding, sensitivity and gum disease, there are many reasons to remove plaque and tartar before whitening.
- tartar actually makes teeth appear yellowish and just by removing it and any surface stains, your teeth will look whiter
- plaque and calculus block the way to your teeth – the whitening gel must get in contact with your teeth and not tartar for maximum effectiveness
- plaque can make your teeth more sensitive to whitening gels
