Teeth Whitening at Parramatta Dental Clinic

Having whiter teeth can make your smile look healthier and younger. Teeth whitening is perfect as a stand-alone cosmetic treatment or can be used in preparation for other aesthetic procedures. With the professional methods we use at Parramatta Dental Clinic, you’ll see better and brighter results than with products sold in stores.

Take-Home Whitening Kits

A take-home whitening system uses custom trays that fit snuggly against your unique smile (all we need is an impression of your bite). You’ll place a small dot of whitening gel inside of each tooth reservoir then press the tray down onto your teeth. Wear your trays for about an hour a day up to 10-14 days.

The best part about take-home whitening? It’s easy to maintain. Keep your trays forever and just pick up a tube of gel when you run out. We recommend touching up your smile for one or two days after each scale and clean.

Take-Home Whitening Kits only $299

In-Chair ZOOM! Whitening

Same day teeth whitening uses a safe but powerful method to give you dramatic results in one appointment.

ZOOM! Whitening gel is a concentrated solution that’s amplified by a powerful light. When applied, it quickly oxidises stain particles and natural discolouration, making your enamel multiple shades brighter than before. The entire appointment only takes about 60-90 minutes to complete.

Qualifications for Whitening

There are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind if you’re thinking about whitening your teeth.

If you have active cavities, they’ll need to be addressed before using a whitening product. We recommend placing temporary fillings, then updating them with white ones to match the new shade of your smile.

On a similar note, white restorations like bonding, fillings and crowns will not change if they’re exposed to whitening products. If you have treatments on front teeth, they’ll be more noticeable after your teeth are lightened.

Causes of Tooth Stain

Some people have naturally darker teeth than others, simply due to genetics. But other factors that contribute to tooth discoloration include things like:

• Certain types of medications
• Past trauma to teeth
• Coffee, tea and red wine
• Tobacco products
• Environmental factors

Which Whitening Works Best?

Over-the-counter products seem cheaper, but are they really? Since professional products work more effectively, they offer the best return on investment. Store-bought kits have to be re-purchased every time you need to touch up your smile. For dramatic results, it’s best to work with a professional!
