Tooth Whitening Toowoomba

Teeth can be genetically dark or discolour due to aging, smoking, eating and drinking tea, coffee, red wine and other strongly coloured foods and beverages. Following a few simple guidelines, tooth whitening will not harm your teeth or gums and significant lightening can be achieved in most cases.

Many people qualify for tooth whitening however several variables can affect the outcome including the cause of discolouration, the condition of the teeth and how closely the patient sticks to his or her whitening plan. Your dentist or hygienist will determine whether tooth whitening is right for you. It is not recommended for pregnant women and nursing mothers.

Withers Dental offers both Zoom! Advanced Power in-chair whitening and home whitening kits.

The Zoom! Advanced Power in-chair whitening system is a leading professional option. The soft tissues are covered while a strong whitening solution is applied to the teeth. The process involves four cycles of 15 minutes each in conjunction with the Zoom! Advanced Power lamp. Our dentists will explain how to maintain your new smile with home whitening trays. The colour of your teeth will be reviewed two weeks after the procedure.

Home Whitening

Home whitening is a great alternative for those who would like to gradually whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home. Custom-made trays that look like thin, transparent mouth guards are fabricated and fitted. Whitening gel is then measured into the trays and placed onto the teeth overnight or for two to four hours a day for about two weeks. Your whitening progress will be reviewed two to three weeks after you complete the home treatment. We will also explain how to maintain your new whiter, brighter smile.
