Tooth Whitening


Do you have a special event coming up, Wedding? Holiday? Or just want a brighter smile?
There are many reasons why teeth become stained or discoloured, including tobacco use, and drinking dark liquids such as red wine, coffee, tea and cola. The natural ageing process and prescription medication use can also cause yellowing and greying.
Fortunately, in most cases, Tindale Dental Centre can remove all your stains and bring your teeth back to their natural whiteness.
We are excited to be able to offer our patients two tooth whitening options. Following consultation with one of our dentists we can assess which whitening option is best for you. We can offer you either our new ZOOM!® Chairside whitening system or our  take home whitening option.

CHAIR-SIDE WHITENING

zoom

Many people are opting for the Zoom!® Chair side Whitening System (Zoom!®) for fast, safe and effective teeth whitening. Zoom!® combines the newest advances in dental technology with proven chemical formulas. This ensures our team can provide excellent whitening results.
As with any whitening system, the post-treatment results will vary according to the degree of initial staining and discolouration as well as the initial condition of the teeth. Following Chair-side whitening, Tindale Dental Centre will provide you with home trays to ensure optimal results can be maintained in the long term.

About The Procedure

  • The Dentist will examine and polish your teeth. They will then take  impressions of your teeth  so that custom whitening trays can be created.
  • At the next chair-side appointment, the gums are protected with isolation material.
  • A whitening gel is then applied to the teeth.
  • The gel is activated by the whitening machine for approximately 8 minutes. This 8 minute cycle is then repeated 3-4 times within the session (depending on the severity of the staining).Many patients  are opting for the Zoom!® Chair side Whitening System (Zoom!®) for fast, safe and effective teeth whitening.

Teeth Sensitivity

20% of people will experience some sensitivity during the procedure. Common reasons for this sensitivity include:

  • Fine cracks in the teeth.
  • History of tooth grinding.
  • Presence of abrasion lesions caused by over brushing.

The sensitivity may last up to 24 hours after treatment. Sensitivity will vary from patient to patient. Most people only have mild sensitivity for a maximum of 10 hours. We may recommend a post whitening gel to be used after the appointment to reduce sensitivity.

Whitening Results

The results are permanent. Over time, you will generate new staining and this is dependent on your lifestyle. We recognise that all people will eventually get new stains, which is why we will provide you with a home maintenance kit so you can maintain the brightness of your smile for the long-term.

TAKE HOME WHITENING

Take home Dental Whitening is a safe, effective and easy way to get professional results. At Tindale Dental we will construct custom made fitting guards.  These guards guarantee the most comfortable and effective way to dispense and use Take home whitening kit.  Our dentists use and recommend SDI Poladay and Polanight whitening systems.

poladay

Whiter. Brighter. You.

polanight

SDI Pola Day or Pola Night is an effective take-home whitening system that is made in Australia. This advance teeth whitening system’s formula reduces post whitening sensitivity and provides quick and noticeable results.
The high viscosity, neutral ph tooth whitening gels ensure the greatest patient comfort in a take home kit. The unique blend of soothers, conditioners and high water content assist in reducing sensitivity. The formation of plaque and tooth decay is significantly reduced.
Pola advanced tooth whitening systems provide safe and reliable tooth whitening to suit your needs and lifestyle.

Features

Natural soother and conditioner
The incorporation of special additives minimises plaque formation and enhances remineralisation to further reduce sensitivity. Antibacterial properties help in tooth recovery.

High water content
The high water content of the gel reduces dehydration of the enamel and decreases patient sensitivity.

High molecular weight thickener
This reduces the tacky feeling and drying effect of the gel in turn reducing sensitivity further.

High viscosity
The high viscosity gel ensures it can be easily and securely placed into the tray and remains in the tray for the entire procedure.

Spearmint Taste
The pleasantly flavoured spearmint gel is both fresh and long lasting.

Fluoride releasing
The addition of fluoride remineralises the tooth surface assisting in reducing post-operative sensitivity.

Contains desensitising agent
The gels contain a desensitising agent which acts on the nerve endings, and desensitises them at the pulp-dentin border, in turn minimising sensitivity and maximising patient comfort.

Neutral pH
Neutral pH ensures the full release of the peroxide without jeopardising your comfort.

NOTE: Individual patient results may vary.

At Tindale Dental Centre we are proud of our teeth whitening program .We offer extended hours and convenient parking  so as to make teeth whitening available to as many of our patients as possible.
