Comprehensive Teeth Whitening Procedures in Fremantle
At South St Dental Centre, we are the preferred provider for teeth whitening treatment in the Fremantle community. Our professional whitening products contain carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. These substances are active ingredients that will lighten the color in the tooth enamel. Prescription strength whitening conducted in your dentist’s office can make your teeth three to eight shades lighter.
As part of our teeth whitening protocols, we will assess and recommend the most suitable teeth whitening option for your situation. Please note that if you have hyperflurosis (opaque white specks in the enamel), teeth whitening may not be recommended as it may accentuate the flecking. There are other options such as veneers to mask such discolourations.
In-office teeth whitening at South Street Dental Centre is the quickest way to whiten teeth. We use Zoom in-office bleaching, where the whitening product is applied directly to the teeth. This product is then activated with a special lamp. Results are noticeable in a 30-60 minute treatment. Depending on the level of initial discolouration, several appointments may be needed. However, with in-office whitening, dramatic results can be seen after the first treatment. This type of whitening is the more expensive option, and patients may experience heightened teeth sensitivity.
When having teeth whitening procedures at South St Dental Centre, we’ll advise how to manage any sensitivity and educate you on post-whitening aftercare so your pearly whites will remain white for as long as possible.
Tray-Based/Take Home Whitening
With a take home tray-based tooth whitening system, a custom-made mouth guard-like tray will be filled with a gel whitening solution. The tray is worn for a period of time, generally for a couple of hours each day or during the night over a few days (depending on the degree of discolouration and desired level of whitening). This is the gentlest option on your teeth. A customised tray is moulded to your teeth to minimise wastage and leakage to the gum line. As we also sell the whitening gels separately, these trays can be retained for future in-home treatments.
