Looking for the white, bright and confident smile you’ve always wanted? Our Teeth Whitening Brisbane treatments will help make a dramatic difference to your smile.
Bright white teeth can bring with it the self-confidence boost you are looking for. It’s a popular choice of Cosmetic Dentistry here at Dr Basil’s Clinic.
If you are tired of the colour of your dull or yellow teeth, don’t worry you aren’t alone. There are a number of ways Dr Basil can help solve the problem.
A new smile you can be proud of
As we age our teeth naturally start to lose some of their shine and sparkle.
Our Teeth Whitening treatment here in Brisbane means you can brighten your teeth from 5 to 14 shades. Results will depend on how discoloured the teeth are to begin with, but we’ll let you know upfront what results we believe can be achieved for you.
Using up-to-date equipment and techniques, Dr Basil – a highly qualified dentist and oral physician – will have your teeth whitened using safe and effective methods. It’s a simple and non-invasive procedure that Dr Basil performs regularly in his Annerley Clinic. Plus, we offer take home teeth whitening options too.
Why choose a professional for teeth whitening?
Professional teeth whitening has a number of benefits compared to commercially available products on the market.
We design customised whitening trays to hold the whitening agent in place. Most commercial products use generic trays or strips which can mean that the gel comes in contact with gum tissue and can cause irritation.
Teeth whitening by an experienced dentist can mean better results and fewer side effects.
Why do our teeth discolour?
Even with a strong dental routine of brushing and flossing, our teeth can still lose their whiteness. This is because the outer enamel of our teeth gets thinner and is worn down, revealing the inner layer called dentin. Dentin causes your teeth to appear yellowish in colour. If you have suffered any trauma to your teeth over the years, this can affect the dentin layer.
The food and drink that you consume can also change the colour of your teeth as many drinks can stain the enamel of your teeth. Acidic foods and drinks like coffee, tea, wine and soft drinks are the usual culprits.
Smoking can also dull the colour of your teeth. As well as some medications.
If you grind your teeth or have had an accident which caused your teeth to crack, this can be another way substances make their way into your teeth.
How long will my teeth whitening treatment last?
Results will vary depending on the lifestyle that you lead and what you do to maintain them. The food and drink you consume can make a big difference.
Following your treatment, we’ll be sure to take you through the proper way to care for your newly whitened teeth, for them to stay bright for as long as possible.
How does teeth whitening work?
At our Brisbane teeth whitening dental clinic, the whitening products that we use contain bleaching agents. This is used to fade away stains and bring back the sparkle to your teeth.
We recommend that for best results the whitening procedure is performed in a dental clinic like Dr Basil’s. This will ensure teeth are whitened evenly and all safety standards are adhered to.
Before starting your treatment Dr Basil with thoroughly examine your teeth and clear out any food debris and plaque. Better results are seen when the whitening treatment is applied to clean teeth.
But if you’d prefer to opt for a take home whitening option, great results can be achieved this way under the guidance of Dr Basil.
Take Home Teeth Whitening
The difference between an over the counter teeth whitening solution, and a custom home whitening kit tailor-made by Dr Basil is huge. A take home tooth whitening solution from us means that we will prepare custom whitening trays for you to use at home.
Dr Basil will guide you on how much gel you should apply each time, so that you can easily whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home.
Caring for your teeth after whitening
After you have had your teeth whitened, you want the effect to last for as long as possible. For some people, you may experience some teeth sensitive after the procedure. This will only be temporary and if you have any concerns about this let us know.
Be sure to practice good dental hygiene when cleaning and flossing teeth. Plus be mindful of the food and drinks you consume. Try to cut back on sugary drinks, coffee, tea and red wine. Or at least use a straw.
