Tooth whitening in Hornsby

Are stained or yellow teeth affecting your confidence and how you smile? Piazza Dental offers professional tooth whitening to Hornsby patients. With so many whitening toothpastes, strips and kits on the market everyone wants a brighter smile. Let’s take a closer look at your options for tooth whitening.

Why Do Teeth Get Stained?

Your tooth enamel has pores, and these pores can trap stains. Consuming dark beverages like cola, tea, coffee and red wine, and not brushing your teeth regularly can contribute to the build up of these stains.

Your dentin also becomes discoloured as you age. This is a normal part of the ageing process.

How Does Tooth Whitening Work?

The tooth whitening process works effectively at removing surface stains and discolouration. If you have darkening at the roots of your tooth, from root canal treatment or receded gums, tooth whitening will not lighten this kind of darkening. It is actually more likely to make your teeth more sensitive.

If you have restorations made from resin, like veneers or crowns, they will not be responsive to tooth whitening Hornsby.

Tooth Whitening Options

Piazza Dental is pleased to offer our patients both take-home and in-chair teeth whitening treatments. We do favour the in-chair treatments because they tend to be quicker, produce better results and just easier for our patients. These treatments are generally completed in an hour.

In-chair whitening treatments
Your dentist will first make sure your gums and soft tissue are protected from the bleaching agent. Then he will apply the whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The tooth whitening gel will contain a bleaching agent like hydrogen peroxide or peroxide carbamide. Your dentist will shine a laser onto the tooth to make the process go faster.

The laser allows us to give individual teeth different periods of time, which is ideal if you have uneven staining on your teeth.

Take-home tooth whitening
If you prefer take-home tooth whitening, Hornsby patients can have trays that have been cast to fit their mouth and the shape of their teeth. You will apply the whitening gel into the trays and then wear the trays for half an hour a sessions, twice a day, for ten days. We use the Opalescence take-home whitening system.

You can do a top up tooth whitening treatment every four months thereafter to keep your teeth bright. During your top up sessions you will wear the trays for shorter periods of time, only three to four days for maintenance.

Remember though that the results will not last forever. The brightness of your teeth is subject to what you expose your teeth to. To maintain your white smile you may want to consider some lifestyle changes, like eliminating red wine, tobacco products and caffeinated products.

It is also important to take note that you will need a general check up with your dentist before going ahead with tooth whitening in Hornsby. This is to ensure that your gums are healthy and that your mouth is cavity-free. This applies for both in-chair and take-home whitening treatments.
