Teeth Whitening in Caddens, Penrith
Why consider teeth whitening?
Teeth naturally discolour over time. The enamel on your teeth contain small pores which slowly absorb what we put in our mouth. Drinking red wine, coffee, tea and smoking can lead to a discolouring of teeth.
Do whitening toothpastes work?
Toothpastes and mouth rinses are limited and only remove stains on the surface enamel of your teeth (known as extrinsic stains). This is usually due to the abrasive nature of whitening toothpastes, prolonged use can cause sensitivity and erode health enamel. To remove stains within cracks of your enamel and underneath teeth (intrinsic stains) requires more sophisticated teeth whitening agents.

Your take-home teeth whitening treatment
We will measure you for your bleaching trays during your first appointment. This involves taking an impression of your teeth. You then return to the clinic to pick up the trays and whitening gel.
The bleaching trays and gel are applied at home using our easy to follow instructions. Usually this involves two 30-minute sessions per day. Some of the lower concentrated gel can be used overnight.
The great thing about this treatment is that the trays can be reused again, so when you need to complete another treatment, only the gel needs to be purchased.
Does whitening cause any sensitivity or pain?
How long do the results last?
The results can last for a number of years although may need retouching every 6-12 months. Drinking red wine, coffee, tea and smoking will likely mean teeth-whitening treatment is needed more frequently.
