Teeth Whitening – Central Coast

Teeth Whitening

Over time our teeth can become discoloured due to a range of factors such as ageing, tea, coffee, red wine, some medications and smoking. Teeth whitening can transform aged and discoloured teeth into a brighter, healthier looking smile.

Teeth whitening also known as teeth bleaching is designed to whiten your teeth without any artificial additions such as veneers, fillings or crowns.

Teeth whitening can be done for either:

  • A whole set of teeth
  • A single tooth

Whitening All Of Your Teeth

The two best options for whitening all your teeth are available at Terrigal Beach Dental:

1. TAKE HOME TEETH WHITENING KIT
Special Offer! $250 for a limited time only

Teeth Whitening Take-Home Kit

This kit includes custom made whitening trays and a box of dental grade whitening gels.

What is the process for teeth whitening at home?

You will need to follow your dentist’s directions and the instructions that come with your home whitening kit.

In general, the process is:

  1. Your dentist will create a custom made tray to fit your upper and lower teeth perfectly
  2. At home, apply the whitening gel on to the custom-made tray
  3. Place the whitening trays securely over your upper and lower teeth
  4. This needs to be every day for 2 weeks for the best results

Pros of at home teeth whitening

  • Convenient in the comfort of your home
  • Do it anytime
  • Economical
  • It can enhance the appearance of your teeth, giving you a whiter and more radiant smile.

Cons of at home teeth whitening

  • Requires consistent effort– 30 minutes a day for 2 weeks
  • Slower or more gradual results
  • Home bleaching agents tend to be weaker

2. IN-CHAIR WHITENING
Special Offer! $595 for a limited time only

In-Chair Teeth Whitening

Have your teeth whitened in under an hour by one of clinicians in our comfortable chairs.

We use the Polaoffice+ system, the world’s fastest whitening treatment, to ensure our patients achieve brighter teeth in a short time.

The Pola technology targets stains and discolouration created from things such as cigarettes, alcohol and coffee to reveal a smile that’s whiter than ever.

Also included is a complimentary take home whitening kit to allow you to maintain your new whiter smile.

Pros

  • Generally very good result
  • Relatively quick – only an hour
  • More concentrated whitening agent is used

Cons

  • Risk of teeth sensitivity
  • Risk of chemical burn to the gums, however we take every care to apply a barrier to protect your gums
  • Existing fillings/ veneers/ crowns will not whiten

Whitening A Single Tooth

A single tooth can discolour due to the disruption of its blood supply form either trauma or decay.

In these cases, a whitening gel can be placed within the tooth (Internal Whitening) to whiten the tooth from the inside out. Root canal treatment needs to be carried out on the tooth prior to this.
