Whitening

The most common request from our patients is to have whiter teeth. Unfortunately, there are a lot of teeth whitening promises that often fail to deliver. Although whitening toothpastes may help with surface stain, only a dentist can provide a whitening process that will penetrate the tooth sufficiently to offset the signs of aging.

As we age, our teeth become more dense with the constant assault of chewing. This means that they often grey, or yellow over time.

After many years of experience, The Dental Junction believes that the best method of teeth whitening is using custom made trays and a bleaching agent. The bleaching agent is a form of peroxide. It is for this reason, that it is essential that the trays be custom made to minimise peroxide on the more sensitive gums. Without close fitting trays, it is possible that burns (some severe) can occur.

The bleaching agents used by dentists are far stronger than what can be provided over the counter. They require close monitoring for their safety.

The Dental Junction does not provide Zoom, Brightsmile, or other “instant” teeth whitening procedures. It is not that these do not work, in fact, they are excellent in achieving the same result, however, over time, you will still be supplied with trays to maintain the white smile. So, unless you have a wedding in the next few days, we believe that you can achieve the same result with trays at approximately half the price.

We are happy to recommend an “instant” whitening practice should this be your desire.
