Important facts about teeth whitening Brisbane

Whether you are considering tooth whitening and want to opt for dentist teeth whitening or for at-home teeth whitening, we can help you. At Southside Dental Group, our technicians are highly skilled in achieving exceptional teeth whitening results and will work with you to ensure that you are delighted with the outcome.

Here are some of the important things that you need to know about teeth whitening Brisbane:

  • If you have tooth coloured fillings, crowns, bridges and veneers, you need to know that these are not going to lighten with whitening treatments.
  • Before suggesting teeth whitening, your dentist will assess tooth sensitivity, receding gums, enamel thickness, tooth decay and any existing restorations
  • You can expect teeth whitening to make your teeth up to three shades lighter

As with any other kind of cosmetic dental treatment, you need to speak to our cosmetic dentists and find out whether tooth whitening is a solution for you.

Why should I go to my dentist for whitening instead of buying a kit online or from the supermarket?

There are several tooth whitening products that are available over the counter, whether in the supermarket or in the chemist. While these are a relatively inexpensive option for people to use for teeth whitening, there are a few concerns about administering an over the counter tooth whitening solution.

When you use an over the counter kit, you are given a standard tray which is supposed to fit your teeth. But the reality is that because the tray is not customised to your mouth, it can cause the whitening solution to be unevenly distributed on your teeth which can cause sensitivity.

In addition to sensitivity, saliva may also be able to seep into the trays and dilute the solution, which makes it less effective. Many over the counter solutions also contain an acidic rinse which can remove amounts of tooth structure, and contain a lower amount of peroxide making it a weaker solution.

What is the process of teeth whitening?

At Southside Dental Group, we use Polanight teeth whitening. Polanight is a quality product that works to lighten your teeth in a comfortable and effective way. Polanight has added fluoride which works to re-mineralise the surface of the teeth as they are whitened, which means that you’ll enjoy reduced post-operative sensitivity.

Depending on whether you want in-chair Pola Office Whitening or at home Polanight teeth whitening, the process is slightly different.

Teeth whitening Brisbane – Home whitening with Polanight

Step one: The first thing you need to do when looking to whiten your teeth is to book in with our cosmetic dentists. In this appointment, your dentist is going to create the custom-fitted whitening trays which will allow you to whiten your teeth while you sleep.

Step Two: Apply the whitening solution at night. Polanight is a take home treatment which is as simple as distributing the solution into the compartments in the trays, and then applying them to the teeth. Polanight does come in three different concentrations, and a quick check-up will help your dentist determine which concentration is best for you.

Teeth whitening Brisbane – In-chair whitening with Pola Office Whitening

We take care of the teeth whitening for you. With Pola Office whitening, whiter teeth can be achieved in just thirty minutes! The unique Pola Office desensitising properties mean that you don’t get as much post-procedural sensitivity and can go about your day sooner.

How long does it take before I see the results and how long does it last?

You should see results from your dentist teeth whitening straight away. Depending on how stained your teeth are, the results may be more dramatic for more heavily stained teeth or less dramatic for whiter teeth.

Once your teeth have been whitened it can last a few years, although some people do find they need periodic touch-ups once or twice a year.

How long the whitening lasts does depend on your oral habits, and what food and drink you consume often. Obviously, tooth staining products like red wine, coffee and cigarettes are going to have a negative effect on the tooth whitening that you have done.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

The teeth whitening cost at Southside Dental Group starts at the price of $500 for take home whitening, and $1000 for in chair Pola Office whitening.

The teeth whitening cost is a once off which covers the price of personalised trays made for you by the dentist, as well as the whitening solution. The process can then be repeated as advised by your dentist.
