Tooth whitening, also called bleaching, is possibly the easiest way to achieve a bright and happy smile, and it is fun because you can see results quickly. As one of our most popular cosmetic treatments, teeth whitening is both affordable and is safe for most healthy patients.
The only prerequisites are that you are happy with the alignment of your teeth, and your teeth are healthy without any uncontrolled gum and bone disease.
At CFS Dental, we will carry out a single-visit whitening procedure, using a non-light activating system that is gentler to your teeth. Your teeth can be lightened by more than three shades on the dental chart within a one-and-a-half hour appointment.
If you desire a brighter smile, you can supplement your clinic whitening with a take-home whitening system for further enhancement.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening Systems
We design customised whitening systems by first taking impressions and then pouring moulds of the teeth. We use these models to create your whitening trays, which will last for many years, as long as your bite and teeth remain the same.
Place the recommended amount of whitening gel in each tooth area in the trays. You will likely choose to only whiten the front teeth, as they are visible when you smile.
One of the many benefits of choosing take-home whitening is that you can reserve your trays for future whitening treatments, should your teeth develop new stains.
Additional Whitening Options
Tooth whitening can also be done to a severely blackened tooth that had been root-filled. In this situation, whitening is done to the internal walls of the tooth, as it will not respond to external whitening methods.
You may also choose to cover discoloured teeth with porcelain or composite veneers. This is particularly useful for teeth that are stained due to medications or demineralisation.
Comfort and Safety during Teeth Whitening
At CFS Dental, we want you to enjoy comfortable teeth whitening both in the chair and at home. To avoid sensitivity, we recommend that you follow instructions for take-home whitening precisely. If you do experience sensitivity, try taking some time off in between treatments. Skip a day or two between treatments and give us a call to let us know how you are feeling. That way, we can provide additional desensitisers or change the whitening system you are using.
Both Dr Ng and Dr Szeman are available to answer questions and to help you achieve the bright, white smile you desire comfortably
