Teeth can discolour (or ‘yellow’) with time, lifestyle, or due to many other reasons. Various products and procedures can be used to enhance the brightness of your smile. Salamanca Dental will design a teeth whitening plan that is specially customised to your unique requirements and smile.
Our Hobart clinic uses dental products that are only available through dentists’ offices to ensure optimum safety. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment, as it does not require any modifications to the structure of the tooth and can easily be ‘topped up’ to maintain and transform your smile.
Prior to any tooth whitening process, we need to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. A dental check-up and cleaning might be advised if you have not recently had this done.
Different treatment types and strengths are available to suit your lifestyle and sensitivity.
Our Teeth Whitening Packages
A convenient tooth whitening system for those on the go. This is a brush-on whitening system. You simply brush the whitening solution onto your teeth (similar to applying nail polish), and then you can get on with your day.
Here are the steps:
- After brushing, dry your teeth with a towel
- Brush the whitening solution onto your teeth
- Allow the solution to dry before closing your lips over your teeth
- Repeat, twice a day for 10 days.
Your smile could be up to eight shades whiter in just one 90-minute office visit to our Hobart clinic. We prepare you for the visit to ensure your teeth whitening experience is comfortable.
The teeth whitening visit:
- We clean your teeth thoroughly
- We place moisture barriers in the mouth and around the teeth to keep everything dry
- We apply whitening gel to the teeth and activate it with a bright light
- Every 15 minutes, we apply new gel for 4 cycles
- The gel is washed off
- We apply a soothing gel to the teeth for re-hydration and to reduce sensitivity
In-office teeth whitening is the quickest way to brighten your smile.
With the Salamanca Dental Platinum teeth whitening option, you get the in-office (Salamanca Place, Hobart) teeth whitening (as per GOLD above) and a full 10 day take-home teeth whitening kit.
So this package gives you the ultimate standard in tooth whitening.
Dentist-issued tooth whitening contains stronger ingredients than tooth whitening that can be purchased in stores or online. Our products are at least 6% active ingredients. By law over-the-counter products must be less than 2% and some contain no active whitening ingredients at all. Due to the stronger ingredients in our tooth whitening options, our dentists must ensure patients are decay free before we can offer any tooth whitening options.
A radiant, whiter smile… how much does it cost?
A smile is the first thing people notice about you, and when you feel good about it, it shows. When it comes to teeth whitening – as with everything having to do with your smile – our dentists are your best resource.
