Why Choose CarePlus Dental for Whitening?

Teeth whitening is the simplest and most affordable cosmetic dental treatment.

Teeth can become stained or discoloured through consumption of dark, staining food and drink (think berries, coffee and red wine), smoking or the use of certain prescription medications. The solution is teeth whitening. Home whitening is very affordable and offers excellent control over shade.

Safety is the key benefit of having a dentist perform your teeth whitening. Dentists operate in a highly regulated environment. Their detailed understanding of teeth whitening treatments minimises the likelihood of side-effects or complications.

Another benefit is more pronounced results. Dentists have access to the most sophisticated equipment and the highest concentrations of active ingredients in whitening preparations and processes, and they use shade guides and photography to document whitening outcomes.

The Procedure for Home Whitening

The process for home teeth whitening is as follows:

  1. We take a mould of your teeth and build custom trays – one each for the upper and lower arches.
  2. A week later, your trays are supplied along with whitening gel, desensitising gel and detailed instructions for use.
  3. You routinely apply the whitening gel to your teeth via the trays until you’ve achieved the results you want.

The benefit of home whitening is that you are in control of the degree of whitening, plus it can be repeated if the effect wears off over time.
