Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that lightens teeth by removing stains and discolouration. This is achieved using a special whitening gel made from peroxide – either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.
When done safely by a qualified dental professional, teeth whitening can significantly brighten your smile and even decrease the amount of plaque and decay-causing bacteria in your mouth.
Our dental clinic in Adelaide offers two types of whitening procedures:
City Central Dental provides the fastest in-chair whitening in Adelaide, achieving results in just an hour. The treatment involves sitting in a chair while your dentist applies special whitening gel to the front surface of teeth.
Guards are placed on your gums and a special light is used in 5-10 minute intervals to activate the whitening agent. The gel is reapplied up to three times until the desired colour is achieved.
We also provide a take-home whitening kit, allowing you to lighten your teeth in your own time while using safe, professional gel and equipment. The process involves creating a special tray made specifically to fit your teeth.
Patients take home the tray and bleaching gel, wearing them for an hour a day for 10 days. The treatment takes longer than in-chair whitening but it is just as effective.
