Five years After One Visit Tooth Whitening

Monthly home tray whitening gel can be supplemented with yearly in-house professional tooth whitening system as well at Designer Smiles. Over-the-counter products (OTC) have considerable amounts of acid which can affect the surface enamel of the tooth, while professionally delivered products tested in clinical trials sustain no damage to tooth enamel.

Tooth whitening is an art requiring prior assessment of tooth colour/shade. Patients with very dark stains on their teeth may not be suitable candidates for whitening procedure as it would take quite a long period of time and the banding-striations will remain. Also, it is not ideal for bleaching teeth with severe tetracycline discolouration and enamel hypoplasia (surface malformations). Bleaching alone will not fix the problem. The surface colour contrast in the bands will remain. Ultrathin minimal intervention porcelain veneer developed by Dr Sarkis Nalbandian and his laboratory (dental Xpressions) are the answer.

Ideal Clinical Situation for Brighten Your Teeth

The presence of even discolouration on the surface with no bands or pits fissures or grooves. Yellow teeth, with light discolouration restricted to enamel as opposed to dentine, and plenty of enamel.

  • Light yellow tetracycline staining
  • Brown fluorosis stains: the white spot lesions become less apparent as the surrounding brown/tooth lightens up
  • Bleaching single or few discoloured teeth as per patient preference
  • Extended bleaching of calcified pulpal-yellow golden tooth with history of trauma
  • All surface stains: coffee, tea, tobacco, chromogenic bacteria
  • Staining due to Chlorhexidine (CHXO)
  • Possible reduction in root caries-anticariogenic properties of carbamide peroxide

However, the most important factor in a successful teeth whitening treatment with our team is realistic patient expectations.

Teeth Whitening Before - After

What Are the Two Kinds of Stains That Develop?

Extrinsic—Stains which are deposited on the outside surface. Whiteners will lighten calculus and the subsurface structure.
Intrinsic—Stains which are incorporated into the tooth structure before or after eruption.

Yellow brown-amelogenesis imperfecta, hypoplastic form which is usually transmitted as autosomal dominant trait.

  • White -Fluorosis (se enamel microabrasion)
  • Green/blue-hyperbillirubinaemia
  • Grey Brown-necrotic pulp
  • Red brown-Congenital porphyria
  • Blue brown- dentinogenesis imperfecta
    If you are having any of stains mentioned above, then choosing our best  teeth whitening treatment in Sydney can help you achieve sparkling white teeth.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost in Sydney?

What Agent or Agents Lighten Teeth?

Peroxide is an active agent. Found in Carbamide Peroxide (CP). Breakdown: 10% CP=3% HP+7% Urea; (HP = Oxygen + Water; Urea = Ammonia + Carbon Dioxide)

How Does Tooth Whitening Treatment Works?

Carbamide peroxide breaks down into hydrogen peroxide and urea, materials commonly found and readily disposed of in the body.

Hydrogen peroxide breaks down into water and an oxygen free radical.

The 10% Carbamide Peroxide is the safest and tested and is regarded as the standard of care in Evidenced Based Dentistry. We, in dentistry are now trained in biochemical concepts of tooth whitening.

The professional teeth whitening procedure at Designer Smiles, Sydney is very simple. We have the experience and expertise in advising you on tooth whitening. Dr Sarkis Nalbandian tested the first revolutionary tooth whitening system in 2001 and he is recognised and approached by media for assessment of current whitening systems. He appeared on Channel Nine’s A Current Affair in Australia and evaluated and tested a range of tooth whitening systems: both in-house and over the counter products.

The Truth

Very few therapies work for everyone.

  • Advantages of bleaching alone:
    • Chief advantage is minimal invasiveness requiring no alteration of tooth structure and loss of enamel.
    • Presence of even discolouration on surface including no bands or pits fissures or grooves. Yellow teeth, with light discolouration restricted to enamel as opposed to dentine.

    Serve as an adjunct to cosmetic procedures by enhancing general colour-combined Tx

  • Contraindications for tooth whitening
    • Patients with resin allergies or peroxide allergies
    • Pregnant or lactating patients
    • How old should patients be before bleaching? – Should not lighten teeth while patient is in mixed dentition

    Best Tooth whitening in Sydney for individual teeth has a different policy (Ped Dent 30(7 Sup):61-63;2008)

  • Disadvantages of bleaching alone
    • Tooth whitening is eventually reversible
    • Patient must stop smoking, and drinking red wine
    • Number of sessions required
    • Not effective for all forms of discolouration: tetracycline banding will lighten up but remain distinct entities: depending on the lip line, the tips tend to get quite white
    • Bleaching cannot alter shape or position of the tooth
    • Bleaching can be unpredictable. Cannot change colour of existing restorations

Over the years, teeth can become discoloured for a number of reasons. Smoking, certain foods, aging, medication and poor oral hygiene can all contribute to the problem where the change can be so gradual, you never notice. With the new techniques in bleaching, you’ll be surprised at the difference in your smile.

Instant Power tooth whitening special formulation by Designer Smiles® is the most effective whitening procedure in modern dentistry today. We provide this service in one visit with in-house whitening lasers and can improve the shade of your teeth by at least 2-3 shades. If you have golden-brown discolouration teeth can improve 7-12 shades lighter. Best teeth whitening in Sydney CBD treatment is offered to all our patients and, as we are the only clinic in Australia with two fully equipped rooms for this procedure, appointments can be arranged for you as soon as possible.

Alternatively, we also offer home teeth whitening kit. With our home bleaching program, using a custom-fitted lightweight mouth guard and special gel results can be seen after only a few days of treatment.

How Long Does Bleaching Last?

It depends on the person!
Special consideration for bleaching patients

  • Teeth which have yellowed due to age produce the most dramatic results
  • Adequate enamel thickness helps
  • Shrinkage of pulp helps, reduced regenerative capacity of pulp needed to make an informed decision
  • Presence of wear and tear, old amalgams and enamel discolouration
  • Enamel thinning, flat surface, optical reflective effect of enamel is lost

Dentofacial Aesthetic Rejuvenation

It is not just about the teeth it is all about the face! Determining the patient’s specific concern(s) is of major clinical importance. Many tooth surface loss patients (TSL and heavily restored teeth) will be primarily concerned about the longevity of their dentition, but aesthetics is also likely to be of concern. It is easy to presume that this results from the shortened appearance of the teeth. However, the patient may just dislike the yellow/brown appearance of exposed dentine surfaces. Bleaching here also will not work and restorative coverage is required. Porcelain veneers & crowns are placed on lower 10 teeth. Else, Sydney teeth whitening is what you should choose.why choose us

When you get your teeth whitened at the dentist, the result will make much more effective than teeth whitening at home. In dental offices, apart from stronger peroxide solution, heat or light is also used to speed up and improve the whitening effects. The dentist at Designer Smiles ensures that your sensitive gums don’t get more irritated and treated well. 

As per the study, the best at-home teeth whitening products includes crest 3D White Strips, Glo Brilliant Teeth Whitening Kit, Moon Teeth Whitening Strips, and much more. Before using these kits, ensure to follow the instructions to avoid any oral issues. At Designer Smiles, we provide a home tray whitening kit that suits your budget and requirements.

No, teeth whitening is not permanent. However, how long the effects will last will be depended on the type of treatment you have and how well you maintain your teeth. We, at Designer Smiles, guarantee to restore your yellow teeth and get back your sparkling white teeth. You can contact our dental experts to know the realistic patient experience. 

According to the survey, it is safe to use bleach on your teeth periodically as an oral rinse, but only in diluted form. The recommended dilution ratio is 1:20. It is essential to pay attention to the ratio as bleach is very hard and can cause permanent damage to your mouth. However, you can use hydrogen peroxide for teeth whitening purpose. 

Yes, with teeth whitening treatment, you can transform your yellow teeth to white. In case you need to whiten your teeth naturally, then practice oil pulling, brush with baking soda, prevent tooth stains before they happen, eat fruits, do brushing and flossing. Incorporating these dental tips into your everyday oral hygiene will help you get sparkling white teeth. 

Most dental insurance policies do not cover any costs for cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, tooth shaping, veneers, and gum contouring. That’s because these methods are used to improve the appearance of your teeth. Also, they are not considered medically significant. Thus, patients have to pay for teeth whitening. However, you can search for dental clinics providing insurance coverage for teeth whitening. 

The teeth whitening results can last up to 2 or 3 years and as little as six months. However, it varies from person to person. If you do not follow the advice given by the dentist and eat the foods that stain your teeth quickly, you cannot get the benefits of teeth whitening treatment in the long term.
