Teeth Whitening

Have you noticed your teeth are looking a little yellow or stained? In today’s day and age, where it’s easy to notice your teeth aren’t as white as you would like in photos, what better option than professional teeth whitening in Sydney to restore your bright white smile?

At No Gaps Dental, we’re here to help you understand the perks of professional teeth whitening and what you can expect from treatment.

What is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure involving using safe, effective bleaching agents to lighten the shade of your teeth. This treatment produces dramatic results quickly and safely. Your dentist will use a custom-made tray to apply the whitening gel to your teeth, ensuring the treatment is comfortable and effective.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening offers numerous benefits for patients looking to brighten their smile. Some of the most significant advantages of teeth whitening include:

  • Boosted confidence — A brighter, healthier smile can help you feel more self-assured in social and professional situations.
  • Improved appearance — Professional teeth whitening can improve the overall appearance of your smile, making you feel more attractive.
  • Safe and effective — Professional teeth whitening is a safe, effective cosmetic treatment you can rely on, performed by trained dental professionals with years of experience.
  • Long-lasting results — With proper care, professional teeth whitening results can last for years to come, helping you maintain a beautiful, radiant smile.

What To Expect From a Teeth Whitening Treatment at No Gaps Dental

During your initial consultation, your dentist will work closely with you to discuss your expectations for treatment and answer any questions you may have. Before undergoing professional teeth whitening, our dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. If you have any underlying dental issues, such as tooth decay or gum disease, these will need to be treated accordingly before commencing your teeth whitening and will likely incur extra fees.

Your dentist will create a custom-made tray that fits over your teeth, allowing the whitening gel to be applied directly to your teeth. A special light activates the bleaching agent to speed up the teeth-whitening process. Our teeth whitening treatment will lighten your teeth by up to eight shades in as little as one hour!

Depending on the severity of your staining, you may need multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. During the teeth whitening process, you can expect minimal discomfort. Some patients report mild sensitivity or discomfort during treatment, which typically subsides quickly. After treatment, you may experience minor sensitivity, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers or a desensitising toothpaste.

Professional Teeth Whitening vs DIY Off-the-shelf Kits

A store-bought at-home whitening kit does cost less than an in-chair, professional teeth whitening and offers the convenience of doing it yourself rather than attending an appointment. That said, its lower concentrations of hydrogen peroxide mean it doesn’t offer the same change you would experience from a professional teeth whitening service.

In addition to our in-chair teeth whitening services at selected clinics, we at No Gaps Dental also offer take-home teeth whitening kits to help you maintain your whitened smile — you’ll notice results within two weeks!

We recommend using our professional at-home whitening kits for your teeth whitening regime. Unlike an off-the-shelf whitening kit, our professional kits’ dental trays perfectly sculpt your teeth to prevent the whitening product from irritating or burning your gums. Use these at-home kits as maintenance after a professional whitening treatment for the best results. Ensure you follow the instructions carefully to avoid overdoing it when it comes to teeth bleaching.

While you can purchase brush-on whiteners, strips or trays online or from your local grocer, they generally do not have the same hydrogen peroxide concentration as your dentist’s at-home whitening kits. Not to mention, store-bought teeth whitening trays are designed for one-size-fits-all, which contributes to uneven teeth whitening. And not all teeth whitening products are safe — some unsafe products have dangerously high levels of active ingredients with nasty side effects.

When it comes to everyday products like teeth whitening toothpaste, mouthwash or floss, you should also take these products with a grain of salt. While they may provide minor temporary whitening, the results certainly don’t compare with the effects of professional teeth whitening at our dental practice.

How Long Do the Effects of Professional Teeth Whitening Last?

As per Australian law, dental professionals are the only people legally responsible for administering teeth whitening products with over 18% carbamide and 6% hydrogen peroxide. That way, you can count on the best possible yet safest results for a sparkling, white-toothed smile.

There’s simply no one-size-fits-all explanation when it comes to how long your teeth whitening will last. You can expect the result to last for up to two years, depending on your lifestyle. If you’re a smoker or drink alcohol, coffee, tea or soft drinks often, your teeth will likely experience stains or discolouration post-treatment.

Is Teeth Whitening Bad for Your Teeth?

Overusing teeth whitening products or misusing them can potentially damage the tooth enamel, leading to tooth sensitivity or even tooth decay. For this reason, it’s always best to consult your dentist before beginning any teeth whitening treatment. That way, you can ensure your teeth whitening regime is appropriate for your specific dental needs and learn how to use the product safely and effectively.

Professional teeth whitening will actually help remineralise and hydrate your teeth compared to cheap store-bought products.

Cost of Professional Teeth Whitening in Sydney

While a professional dentist-prescribed take-home whitening kit costs anywhere from $350 to $500, professional teeth whitening in Sydney generally costs anywhere from $600 to $2000. At No Gaps Dental, we only invest in the best and most longstanding teeth whitening products from Philips Zoom to Pola, with our in-chair teeth whitening treatments taking less than an hour to complete.
