When it comes to expert teeth whitening in Auckland, Primecare Dental have got you covered. We offer professional teeth whitening to fix tooth stains and discolourations, performed in the surgery under a dentist’s or hygienist’s supervision.
If you’re wondering what the difference between our teeth whitening solutions, and the kind you can buy from the supermarket, read on!
Is professional teeth whitening worth it?
Have you ever bought a whitening toothpaste from your local supermarket and not been satisfied with the result? If you have, you’re not alone. A lot of cheap teeth whitening solutions just aren’t strong enough to combat the build-up of discolouration from day-to-day life, and teeth whitening simply isn’t one-size-fits-all.
After a Primecare Dental treatment, on the other hand, you’ll walk out of the office with a dazzling new smile in just over an hour. Our “in-office” teeth whitening process is ideal for anyone looking for an immediate result.
In contrast, we also offer an “at-home” teeth whitening method, which is unsupervised. Teeth whitening materials and instructions are provided for home treatment so that you can achieve the same result at your own pace. To start the process, an impression is taken and an ultra-thin mouth-guard is made. This guard is made specifically for each patient. Whitening gel is then placed in the guard before it is worn over the teeth, which will be whitened safely and conveniently, typically over a period of two weeks or so.
How will my teeth respond?
How teeth respond to whitening treatments will depend on the cause of the discolouration. For example, certain medications, such as tetracycline, may permanently discolour your teeth. In such a case, you may require several whitening sessions, or consider other cosmetic dentistry options, like porcelain veneers or dental bonding.
How long does professional whitening last?
Any substances that can discolour your white clothes will leave stains on your teeth – i.e. tea, coffee, coke, red wine and smoking. Some medications will also cause discolouration of your teeth, and this means not all teeth will respond to whitening. If your teeth are discoloured largely by general use, then whitening them can last a long time, but it differs for everyone. The best way to get an accurate answer is to see us in person, as every set of teeth is different.
