Yellow teeth? Unhappy with the colour of your teeth? Professional teeth whitening at My Dentist at Cannon Hill is the safest and the best way to whiten them. When you go through the process of professional teeth whitening, you will see a change in the colour of your teeth and soon you will achieve that whiter and brighter smile that you were after. In fact, it is one of the more enjoyable things to have done in dentistry, and we love giving our patients a whiter and brighter smile and our patients love it too!
Teeth whitening can be done at home, by yourself, with a professional teeth whitening kit made by us, or in chair at the practice by our dental professional. At My Dentist at Cannon Hill, both systems are available. Unsure about which system suits you? Talk to us today!
Do Whitening Toothpastes and Whitening Kits Over the Counter Work?
This is a question that we get asked very often. The short answer is no.
Here is the reason:
Whitening toothpastes are more abrasive and help to remove surface staining but do not actually improve the colour of the actual tooth. Some tooth whitening toothpaste do contain ingredients that whiten your teeth but because the concentration is very low and it does not stay in contact with your teeth for very long. As a result, teeth whitening itself does not occur.
The use of over the counter or over the internet whitening kits are becoming more and more popular due to their lower price. However, they do not work and are unsafe to use. For teeth whitening to occur, it is important that the whitening gel is of a certain concentration and is in contact with your teeth for the desired time. When you receive a professional whitening kit from us, we include whitening trays that are custom made to fit your mouth and teeth. This helps to hold the whitening gel against your teeth. With over the counter and over the internet whitening kits, they are stock standard trays that are not customised to fit your teeth and mouth. The whitening gel ends up going everywhere, onto the gums and some is even swallowed. The result is that teeth do not actually whiten and when whitening gel is in contact with the gums, it can cause the gums to burn and be damaged. This makes over the counter and over the internet whitening kits unsafe to use.
