Teeth whitening treatments are designed to improve the colour of natural teeth without having to resort to more involved dental treatments such as fillings, veneers or crowns. The chemical process is entirely safe and the colour change long-lasting with an average of eight shades lighter achievable.

Even if you follow a meticulous at home oral care and cleaning routine, it’s unavoidable that, over time, some yellowing or discoloration will occur. This gradual change can be caused by aging, coffee, tea, tobacco and excessive fluoride. To enable you to achieve or recapture a beautiful alluring white smile, we have two solutions available at Arthur Street Dental.

Zoom! Tooth Whitening

Zoom!® in-chair whitening is completed in the relaxed comfort of one of our treatment lounges, taking around an hour. The formulated whitening gel is applied to your teeth and activated by a specially developed light. Depending on the colour of your teeth and the shade you wish to achieve, the gel may need to be reapplied several times during your procedure. Zoom!® is the world leader in teeth whitening technology with all products being extensively tested to ensure they are completely safe.

Nite White Take Home Kits

Many people choose to brighten their smile in the comfort and convenience of home at times to fit in with their busy schedule using our at-home procedure.

At your initial visit to our practice, we will make detailed moulds of your teeth and create comfortable, customised mouth trays. The whitening tray looks like a fine sport mouthguard which you fill with the whitening solution and place over your teeth, thereby avoiding contact with the gums. You can choose either to wear the mouth tray throughout the night or during the day from two to four hours. When the mouth tray is worn throughout the night, the treatment takes one to two weeks.

The average time it takes to whiten your teeth using the Nite White procedure at home is around 7-10 days.

While teeth whitening is very effective, each person is different and as such will achieve different results. Drinking tea, coffee, red wine and smoking during and after your whitening treatment can lessen its effectiveness and longevity of the results you have achieved.
