Are your teeth not as white as they once were or want them to be?
Perhaps one of the most common, and impactful, cosmetic dental procedure is teeth whitening. While you’ve seen the results, do you know how this process actually works?
To understand this procedure, let’s explore the different types of teeth stains. There are two main categories for teeth stains: intrinsic and extrinsic. Basically, intrinsic stains are deeply rooted in microscopic cracks within your enamel as well as within the inner portion of your teeth, known as dentin. Extrinsic stains effect the exterior, or surface, of tooth enamel.
Traditional teeth whitening systems only deal with external stains resting on the surface of teeth. That’s why toothpaste and whitening mouthwash can only do so much. To completely reverse discolouration, advanced whitening agents capable of delving deep into the intrinsic pathways of teeth are necessary.
Supreme Dental Care has never been interested in sticking with tradition. Our dentists are active members of the Australian Dental Association and tirelessly work to bring the latest technologies to our local communities. You’re likely familiar with traditional teeth whitening procedures, but have you ever heard of molecular teeth whitening?
Our clinic rejuvenates the brilliance of your smile with the Opalescence and Zoom! procedures. So what’s so special about this whitening system? In short, everything.
Instead of simply bleaching the surface of your teeth, our procedures transform tooth colour on the molecular level. The state-of-the-art solution penetrates deep into your teeth to attack the stain-causing molecules. The primary ingredient, either carbamide peroxide or the more familiar hydrogen peroxide, break apart the molecular bonds in stains. The result? Teeth that aren’t just surface-bleached, but completely restored on the deepest levels possible.
Unlike almost any other cosmetic whitening procedure, Opalescence and Zoom! is available as an in-chair procedure or in a safe, convenient at-home treatment. So which one is right for you? It depends on your needs. If you’re looking for immediate restoration, the in-chair procedure is completed in our comfortable and friendly office. The home version doesn’t deliver such expedited results, but does offer the convenience of completing the procedure in the comfort of your living room.
