factsheet


Whitening in Our Dental Practice

This is a quick and easy treatment which takes about an hour to complete under the supervision of a dentist. A strong bleaching gel is applied to your teeth which enables up to 5 shades whiter teeth in less time than it takes to watch your favourite movie. In fact, you can lie back and watch a tv show or movie from our ceiling entertainment systems.

Home Whitening Treatments

Whitening your teeth at home involves wearing a thin plastic tray, which is moulded to your teeth by the dentist. These trays hold a bleaching agent against the surface of your teeth. Spending only 45 minutes a day you can have your teeth 4 - 5 shades whiter within 7 - 14 days. 

At Paramount Dental Sydney we use the best medical grade bleaching agent, Opalescence. 
 


Don’t allow anyone but a dentist to whiten your teeth

Dentists have the skills and training necessary to assess the status of your teeth as your dental history will determine the treatment that is medically safe to administer. Discoloured teeth are not always caused by coffee and red-wine, sometimes antibiotics you took as a child or even issues your mother had during her pregnancy are the cause of your teeth discolouration. These require different treatments to stain removal.

If the person administering treatment to you is not medically qualified, they can cause further damage to existing problems and also damage enamel.

Many DIY teeth whitening kids products specifically refer to surface stain removal as their main whitening method. Please remember that a professional clean by your dentist here at Paramount Dental Sydney can also remove many surface stains (including those between the teeth) which produces a fresher, whiter appearance.

Let’s also not forget that removing surface stains will only restore teeth to their natural colour, this doesn’t necessarily mean your teeth will be actually be whitened.

“The teeth-whitening industry is largely unregulated and the practitioners in salons don’t necessarily have any dental training. Practitioners are unable to advise on whether the process is appropriate for someone (some kinds of discolouration don’t respond to certain treatments), and they’re not qualified to check for problems such as cracked enamel, cavities, restorations and exposed root surfaces that need special care.”
