Teeth Whitening Explained
Ready for an even more radiant smile but not sure about the side-effects of teeth whitening? Not to worry, at Jannali Dental Care we use completely safe and research-backed techniques for teeth whitening at our Sutherland Shire practice, and we’re more than happy to share our secrets.
This is how it works.
Why Whiten Your Teeth
Teeth whitening, or teeth bleaching, is a purely cosmetic practice. It seeks to reverse the discolouration caused when stains leak through the porous enamel coating on your teeth. A tooth bleaching is extremely common practice because it is fast, long-lasting and does not require painful or expensive adjustment of the teeth.
Teeth can become stained or discoloured as a result of:
- Drinking tea, coffee, red wine, fizzy drinks
- Smoking or chewing tobacco
- Eating pigmented foods like berries, tomato sauce
- Cracking or trauma to the teeth
People seek to whiten their teeth for a number of reasons, including:
- For a younger, more radiant smile
- To boost self-esteem
- For a special occasion
- To takes steps toward better oral hygiene
- To aid smoking cessation (when your teeth are white, there’s less temptation to stain them with cigarettes)
Zoom Whitening Treatment – the Best on the Market
At Jannali Dental Care, we use a scientifically advanced and totally safe procedure called Zoom Whitening. Zoom makes whitening your teeth easy and pain-free. It’s fast, safe and is the most effective professional teeth whitening product available on the market today. We use a professional Zoom treatment that can only be applied by a dentist in a dental surgery. Before the treatment, your dentist will recommend a thorough teeth cleaning to make sure you get the best results from the whitening.
During a Zoom professional teeth whitening treatment, you’ll spend just one hour in the dentist’s chair, where the dentist will choose a suitable Zoom treatment based on your starting shade. The treatment is not usually painful, but some patients with sensitive teeth have reported slight pain in sensitive areas. After your treatment, you’ll leave seeing a significant difference in the shade of your teeth – up to eight shades whiter.
Zoom Whitening Aftercare – Making Your Smile Last Longer
After having your teeth whitened, we’ll make sure you’ve got everything you need to continue your treatment at home – including education about basic dental care and how to avoid stains, as well as a treatment kit to continue whitening your teeth at home.
Some things you can do to avoid staining after your teeth bleaching include:
- Avoid staining foods (see above) for 48 hours
- Brush your teeth after each meal, especially after eating staining foods
- Avoid drinking alcohol
- Avoid smoking
