Home / Teeth Whitening

The demand for cosmetic dentistry services in Australia has skyrocketed over the past several years. Of all the services available for men and women to enhance their appearance, teeth whitening is one of the most popular. We are pleased that you are considering having this service performed by FaceLab. Please continue reading for a description of the procedure as well as answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about it.

Who is a Good Candidate for the Teeth Whitening Procedure?

Smoking, drinking coffee, and taking certain medications can all effect the colour of your teeth over time. Some foods can even stain your teeth. Whether you have stains that are yellow, brown, or another colour, bleaching will most likely remove them and brighten your smile significantly. Your teeth need to be strong and healthy to tolerate the procedure before we can begin, so it is important that a recent dental examination has been performed and all required work completed. While teeth whitening is most popular among older adults, we can complete it on patients of any age.

Teeth Whitening Options

You have several home and in-office options available to you for this procedure. If you’re having trouble deciding, we can make a recommendation when you come to FaceLab for a consultation and evaluation. In-chair tooth whitening takes approximately one hour to complete while you sit in a dental chair. We place the bleaching agent onto the teeth and then a special light is placed in front of your mouth initiating and activating the bleaching chemicals. These chemicals do no long term harm to the tooth, it is safe, reversible and the most effective method of treatment.

Another option is to complete the above procedure in our office and enhance the bleaching at home.

A third option is to have the home bleaching component only. These at home bleaching kits can be purchased at Facelab and still require special application trays that are manufactured from models of your teeth. Home bleaching still requires a patient to undergo a thorough dental examination and impressions. At home you are required to wear trays containing the bleaching gel for one hour per day until you achieve the desired results.
