What you should know about professional teeth whitening


Today, Teeth Whitening is not only for the privileged Hollywood elite! More and more people are opting for the convenient cosmetic procedure to enhance their smile and boost confidence when at work or socialising with family and friends.

Why are my teeth discoloured?

There are number of reasons why teeth may become discoloured. Some reasons include:

  • Environmental reasons including exposure to high fluoride levels in water
  • Smoking pipes, cigarettes or tobacco chewing
  • Poor dental hygiene including forgetting to brush and floss regularly and not attending regular dental examinations
  • Foods and drinks including wine, coffee, tea, cola and potatoes
  • Disease Can limit or stop the development of tooth enamel
  • Medications including chemotherapy radiation and antibiotics
  • Aging can wear tooth enamel causing yellow stains

What is Laser Teeth Whitening?

Thankfully, improved technology has delivered more effective teeth whitening procedures with faster results. Lasers are now used to speed up the chemical reaction of the whitening solution on the teeth so you can enjoy whiter teeth much sooner!

What is Pola Night Teeth Whitening?

Pola Night Teeth Whitening can lighten the colour of your teeth by up to 8 to 10 shades!

The system allows for a white smile fast, while limiting tooth sensitivity during and after bleaching. It is a great option for patients concerned about sensitive teeth.

In-office treatments and take-home kits are available.

What Is Zoom Teeth Whitening?

Zoom is similar to Polanight Teeth whitening and both complement each other. With Zoom, a light-activated 25 per cent hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth before a blue plasma light activates the solution and is only offered in-office.

What does Teeth Whitening cost?

According to Choice, teeth whitening, including in-office and at-home treatments, can cost anywhere between $250 -$1500.

What are the side effects of Teeth Whitening?

Teeth sensitivity is the most common side effect, however, if you are susceptible, make sure you don’t eat or drink anything colourful for 5 days after treatment. After this time your new tooth colour will be locked in and you can resume your normal food and drink consumption
