Teeth Whitening in Melbourne Dental Couture

Let your teeth shine their brightest with our teeth whitening services at Dental Couture Melbourne North West. We offer both in-chair whitening for the quickest way to whiter teeth and take home kits for those who prefer the comfort of their home. Teeth whitening is one of the quickest ways to improve a smile, which makes this the most popular dental solution for smile makeovers.

The Science of Discoloured Teeth


Many factors play into the reason that teeth dull or even become discoloured. There are two types of teeth staining, extrinsic and intrinsic. 

Extrinsic staining

is often due to food, beverages, or habits like smoking. Each of these can contribute to staining your teeth over time. Some beverages like red wine and tea are known to stain, while other less obvious items are herbs in foods like turmeric, that can stain over time.

Other factors include smoking, medical treatments such as radiation therapy, or simply poor oral hygiene. When teeth succumb to intrinsic staining, the outer part called the enamel becomes stained. This is the most common type of discolouration and can be treated.

Intrinsic staining

takes place when the internal structure of a tooth becomes discoloured. This may take place through trauma, medications like tetracycline, or excessive fluoride at a young age. Sometimes regular teeth whitening services may require extra care, like a dental veneer, for one or two teeth that have been discoloured. Our skilled dentists will determine the cause and customise the ideal solution for your situation.

Some of the more common causes of teeth discolouration include the following:

N
Regular tea or coffee consumption
N

Red wine

N
Smoking tabacco
N
Iron supplements
N
Too much fluoride
N
Certain medications
N
Chewing tobacco
N
Certain herbs like curry or turmeric
N
Trauma or disease

The Teeth Whitening Procedure


Teeth Whitening Procedure in Melbourne Dental Couture

Teeth whitening begins with a whitening gel that is applied to teeth. Within the gel is a bleaching agent that penetrates the enamel to oxidise and break up stains. When you come to Dental Couture to brighten your smile, we will evaluate the type of staining and work with you to choose the best shade of white for your teeth and complexion. Then we will customise a whitening solution that is right for you and you will be on your way to brighter, whiter teeth.

Your teeth can be whitened during a dental visit or we can create a home kit for you. Our dentists will evaluate your oral health and discuss the best options for you.

In-House Professional Whitening

Our in-house professional whitening system will be done while you relax in the dental chair. This is the most popular and safest option as it is overseen by a team of dental professionals and offers the lowest risk of gum irritation. The whitening solution used is more powerful than a take-home kit and takes advantage of a specialised Chair-side Lamp that activates the solution and expedites the whitening process.

\

Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits

The take-home teeth whitening system is best for patients whose teeth and gums are healthy. We will do a full exam and evaluation to ensure there are no hidden issues, then create a whitening solution for you. We will also customise dental trays in which you place the gel and then over your teeth during the whitening process. Your tray will fit snug and the whitening solution will be the ideal shade for you.

Professional Whitening is Safer and Superior to Over-the-Counter Gimmicks


Having your teeth professionally whitened is a superior treatment than the common over-the-counter kits for a number of reasons. Firstly, some products may damage teeth or harm your gums if used incorrectly. Also, the solutions and trays are not customised the patient, and some kits may include only a strip instead of a tray, which can lead to incomplete treatment. While most patients do not experience damage from these kits, the biggest complaint is sensitivity and that they were a waste of time and money.

Professional teeth whitening offers customised treatments that can bring your teeth to their whitest with safe solutions. Our take-home whitening systems are more effective because you will have a full oral evaluation and a system designed just for you. In some cases, we can even perform dental clinic teeth whitening and then provide you with an at-home whitening kit so your teeth stay whiter for longer.

Your dental professional will discuss the best care for your post-treatment, but the following are some things you can expect:

Are There Risks of Teeth Whitening?


In some cases, patients may experience mild sensitivity during the treatment or after. Your dentist will discuss all options with you and recommend the best toothpaste. If you already have sensitive teeth, your dentist may recommend using toothpaste for sensitivity for about two weeks before your teeth whitening treatment.

If you have dental crowns, veneers, or bridges, talk to your dentists about whitening options. Prosthesis like these often do not respond to whitening, however, some surface stains may be reduced.
