Teeth whitening is a great way to improve the appearance of your smile and is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in Australia. We perform consultations before any whitening treatment to ensure that you are a suitable candidate and discuss options available to you.
We use Australia’s #1 requested professional whitening brand and our service is performed by registered and trained dental professionals only. Our whitening formula is prohibited for use in beauty salons and manufactured for practitioner use only.
Our team is highly qualified and trained, eliminating potential problems such as lack of infection control and careless product application, that can cause irritation to your teeth and gums.
The results speak for themselves! Our formula provides 8-12 shades whiter teeth lightening teeth beyond their natural shade. Unsafe or improper use of whitening products could necessitate costly restorative treatment. We provide safe treatment, protecting your teeth whilst delivering high quality results.
If you choose in-office treatment, you should notice your results immediately. With at-home care, the results will appear gradually as you progress through the course of your treatment.
On average, you can expect to have whiter teeth for 6 to 9 months after teeth whitening, but this will vary from person to person and depending on lifestyle factors. Maintaining a good oral hygiene is key to prolonged results and having our convenient and cost effective dental cleans available, Aesthetik can maintain your white smile all year round!
Both in-chair and at-home professional whitening can be great options. There is no “right” or “wrong” choice; in-chair whitening may be a better choice if you are looking for the fastest and most dramatic results possible. At-home treatment involves using a custom take-home tray that will give you a more gradual result over a few weeks. This may be the optimal choice if you are on a budget or you want to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your own home. The take home kits are customised and can be used in conjunction with in- chair whitening treatment to maintain your new tooth colour.
We help you choose the right treatment for your budget, lifestyle, and dental health when you take advantage of our consultation.
Following your consultation, we recommend that patients have their teeth professionally cleaned by us to remove any plaque build-up and ensure optimum results. we then go ahead with the in-chair whitening procedure which involves placing a shield over your lips, gums and cheeks. We then proceed with placing our whitening gel over your teeth and securing our LED zoom lamp over the mouth shield. The cycle duration is 15 minutes with a total of 4 rounds included.
During the first 24-48 hours of whitening, the tooth becomes more susceptible to absorbing stains. That means you’ll need to avoid certain foods and drinks such as red wine, coffee, tea and coloured soft drinks. You may return as per normal after two days post treatment.
Cosmetic teeth whitening works better on your natural teeth and will only bring your crowns, bridges and veneers back to their original colour.
If you’re considering getting a crown or veneer, you should whiten your teeth before having the material created, so the Dentist can match the new tooth to your whiter teeth and the artificial surface won’t stand out if you whiten later.
Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth under the supervision of a dental professional is completely safe for your teeth and gums, not causing any type of enamel stripping. Our whitening solution contains amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP), which is clinically proven to reduce sensitivity, protect enamel and help improve the smoothness of your teeth.
During your consultation, if we detect a weak area we may suggest you have the work completed prior to undergoing the teeth whitening process.
Some dental practitioners warn against bleaching your teeth while pregnant or breastfeeding.
No current studies have documented any harm caused to the fetus; however, because pregnancy is such a delicate time for a baby, it is suggested that you should not be whitening while pregnant.
There are options for breastfeeding mothers which involves expressing milk sustainable for 2 days after the whitening treatment.
In general whitening tends to work best for stained teeth, but not on teeth that are discoloured from injury or medications.
Mild tooth sensitivity can occur after whitening however this is normally a short-term side effect that will subside within hours/ days. If your teeth become sensitive, a professional fluoride treatment is often helpful in relieving any sensitivity.
Results may vary per individual and any procedure carries its own risks and benefits. Prior to proceeding an assessment is required to determine suitability, we welcome you to seek a second opinion from an appropriate practitioner. Ask us if teeth whitening is the right choice for you.
