Teeth Whitening Midland

Teeth Whitening Midland

A smile to stop traffic

Unfortunately some of our favourite things like tea, coffee, red wine, chocolate and strongly dyed foods can leave your smile not looking as bright as it once was or as you would like. A simple, safe and effective teeth whitening treatment from the team at Helena Street Dental Midland can rejuvenate your smile and increase your confidence, personally and professionally.

At Helena Street Dental Midland we offer you two teeth whitening options to help you achieve the beautiful smile you have always desired. Zoom in-chair and Opalescence at-home whitening.

Before undergoing any teeth whitening treatment, you must be in good oral health. At Helena Street Dental Midland we will assess the health of your teeth and gums and advise you of the best technique for you to achieve a brighter more confident smile.

ZOOM Whitening

ZOOM! in-chair teeth whitening is very popular because it’s safe, fast and results can last for years.

Once you’re relaxed in one of our patient lounges, a formulated gel is applied to your teeth. When exposed to the ultraviolet light, the ingredients in the gel break down years of stains and lighten your tooth enamel. This is a pain free procedure, but you may feel a slight warmth from the light.

Depending on the colour of your teeth and the shade you wish to achieve, your dentist may re-apply the gel every 15 – 20 minutes. The entire whitening treatment takes between 45 minutes to an hour.

After your whitening treatment it’s recommended you not drink tea, coffee and red wine or eat highly coloured foods for at least 48 hours. You should also not smoke for at least four days as this can negatively effect your results.

At-home whitening

Although in-chair whitening at Helena Street Dental Midland is very popular, many of our patients prefer to brighten their smile in the comfort of their own home at times to suit their busy schedule.

For these patients we offer Opalescence. Similar to in-chair whitening, a formulated gel is applied to customised whitening trays – which look like thin mouthguards.

These trays fit precisely over your teeth and are worn for a period as specified by one of our dental team. The active ingredients in the gel will gently whiten your teeth over a period of approximately 10 – 12 days.

It’s very important to follow the instructions exactly, as using too much gel or wearing the trays for longer than you’re supposed to may cause gum irritation or tooth sensitivity.

Although the results can last for some time, teeth whitening is not permanent. An at home option can be also used to freshen-up and maintain your Zoom! In-chair whitening results.

Teeth whitening is only effective on natural tooth enamel. After a whitening treatment many Helena Street Dental patients choose to replace fillings, crowns and other restorations so they match the colour of their new brighter smile.

Rejuvenate your smile and enhance your confidence with a whitening treatment at Helena Street Dental Midland.

Please note: Before undergoing any teeth whitening treatment, your oral hygiene and dental health needs to be assessed to ensure you are suitable and optimum results can be achieved. You must have had a check-up and professional dental clean in the last 12 months or you will be required to have one prior to commencing any whitening treatment.
