Teeth Whitening in Melbourne

Staining of teeth is undoubtedly one of the most common issues that dental surgeons come across on a daily basis. This is due to the well-known fact that teeth staining can originate from typical everyday habits.

But what most people are not aware is that the teeth are prone to the development of stains that can originate from either outside or inside the tooth. The whitening is done on teeth with live nerves and also teeth that no longer houses a live never courtesy of a root canal treatment. The former is known as vital whitening while the latter is known as non-vital whitening. Either of the procedures involve the close inspection and cleaning of the teeth prior to the commencement of the treatment.

In vital whitening procedure, whitening is achieved by the hydrogen peroxide bleaching treatment, similar to that of the zoom whitening. Hydrogen peroxide, by itself, is a natural bleaching agent that eliminates tough stains by leaving no stone unturned. The application of the hydrogen peroxide gel forms a bleaching layer over the surface of your teeth.

On exposure to the high intensity beam of light from the special lamp, the hydrogen peroxide layers are activated to eradicate the stains. Gradually, this bleaching coating breaks down and takes away the staining particles along with it. This effectiveness of the vital whitening procedure and the follow-up has been a subject of much scientific interest even in the most recent times.

In the case of non-vital whitening, there is no live nerve present in the confines of the tooth. As such, strong but safe whitening gel is deposited in the hollow space inside the tooth. This space is conveniently covered by a temporary tooth filling. Subsequently, this setup is left for a few days until which the tooth naturally attains a white colouration. It also matches the shade of the tooth that it is contained in. The process is safe, simple and does not affect the purpose of the root canal treatment.

Getting an appropriate teeth whitening procedure is only half the battle won. It is equally important to maintain the newly attained white and bright teeth! Accordingly, guidance on the maintenance of your teeth is provided to ensure that your future visits to the dental clinic and only for follow-up, and not for repeating the entire procedure! The usage of a teeth whitening kit consisting of a teeth whitening mouth guard helps.

We adopt the perfect degree of accuracy in placing the whitening agent and ensure that when it comes to non-vital whitening, the tooth filling does not give away and leave the inside of the tooth vulnerable. Our teeth whitening dentist leaves no stone unturned in restoring the natural white colour of the teeth.
