Teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry
There are many different factors which can affect the aesthetic appearance of your smile and yellow or stained teeth is one that can be treated at our dental Coorparoo.
Teeth whitening is one of the most sought after cosmetic dental treatments, and with advice and supervision from our dentist you can achieve a beautiful white smile here at our practice or in the comfort of your own home. There are two different types of teeth staining which have to be treated differently for successful results. Extrinsic staining is the most common type of tooth staining and is described as what is known more commonly as having yellow teeth. Extrinsic stains occur mainly as a result of poor oral hygiene and lifestyle choices such as smoking. Teeth can become stained from certain foods and drinks and unfortunately they can also stain following the use of certain types of medication. Extrinsic staining can be treated using teeth whitening procedures from our dental Coorparoo. So book an appointment to visit us in person here at Brisbane Laser Dentist today and find out about the different teeth whitening procedures available and what may be the most suitable option for you.
Teeth whitening gels are made up of a combination of hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide, which act as bleaching agents by breaking down stain molecules and restoring the shine of your enamel. You will first need to undergo a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to make sure that teeth whitening is suitable for you. If you have any underlying dental issues, these may need to be treated before you can undergo cosmetic dental treatment. This is to make sure that you do not exacerbate any existing problems and also to allow the teeth whitening procedure to proceed successfully.
Home whitening kits
If you are looking to whiten your teeth gradually in the comfort of your own home then we can provide you with a home whitening kit which is made up of individually tailored dental trays and teeth whitening gels. The dental trays are manufactured using impressions of your teeth to ensure precision and accuracy. There are two types of gel, one to use for a short amount of time during the day and one to wear whilst you sleep during the night. These gels are composed of differing concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide, and the trays are created to ensure that the gel precisely comes into contact with the teeth without touching the gums, to help prevent discomfort or irritation. The home treatment kits are designed to be used for approximately two weeks, but an individually tailored treatment plan will be put together for you by our dental Coorparoo to ensure the best possible results for your teeth.
