In Chair Zoom Teeth Whitening Sydney CBD & Home Teeth Whitening Kits

teeth whitening before and after

Do your teeth look yellow, stained or discoloured? You could be a candidate for our Sydney based in chair zoom teeth whitening procedure or perhaps you would be interested in our at home teeth whitening kit.

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in Sydney. If your teeth have been stained by food and drink, tobacco or natural ageing, our zoom teeth whitening treatment in Sydney could brighten your smile by several shades, leaving a naturally white finish.

Zoom teeth whitening treatments in Sydney can be carried out by a professional zoom teeth whitening dentist at a dental clinic or in the comfort of your own home using a home teeth whitening kit, under a dentist's guidance. We don't recommend that you use over-the-counter teeth whitening products, as these can produce less reliable results and put your teeth at risk.

Zoom whitening treatments aren't permanent, but by following a good oral care routine and avoiding sources of stains, you can help your white smile to last longer. To find out more about our cosmetic teeth whitening treatment or to book zoom teeth whitening in Sydney CBD, call our team on (02) 9221 1530. You can also book online.

Who can benefit from zoom teeth whitening?

Teeth can lose their whiteness for many reasons. The most common reasons for tooth stains and discolouration are:

  • consuming food and drink with strong colourings, e.g. tea, coffee, red wine
  • smoking
  • trauma to the tooth following an injury or dental treatment
  • medication side-effects
  • natural ageing

Zoom teeth whitening can reduce most stains caused by food and drink, smoking and the natural ageing process, but it can't treat discolouration resulting from trauma or medication. The zoom whitening process also won't work on dental restorations such as fillings, crowns, dentures or implants – only natural tooth enamel.

When you book a consultation with our Sydney zoom teeth whitening dentist, we'll examine your mouth and ask what caused your tooth discolouration. We can then let you know if you're a candidate for the zoom teeth whitening treatment and what outcome and time frame you can expect.

How does our Sydney CBD teeth whitening process work?

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive dental treatment that doesn't involve the use of drills or removing any of the tooth's surface. Instead, a peroxide-based bleaching agent (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) is applied to the teeth. This enters microscopic holes in the surface to remove stains trapped there, leaving teeth looking whiter.

If you decide that teeth whitening in Sydney CBD is the right choice for you, our dentists will first give you a comprehensive oral health assessment so we can make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have a problem such as gum disease, this needs to be treated first, as it could affect the success of your whitening treatment in our Sydney CBD based clinic.

After your check-up, we'll also recommend professional teeth cleaning to remove plaque from the surfaces of your teeth that won't be affected by the whitening agent. This can also remove some lighter stains.

Types of whitening treatments available at Sydney Dental Surgeons

We offer two options for teeth whitening in Sydney CBD:

  1. Zoom teeth whitening
  2. Home teeth whitening kits

If you have fillings or other dental work, these won't be affected by whitening treatments. We can discuss replacing them with new restorations designed to match your whiter smile.

Zoom teeth whitening Sydney

Professional teeth whitening in Sydney carried out in our dental surgery can brighten teeth by several shades in one to two hours. This is much faster than can be achieved using a home teeth whitening kit.

We may also be able to remove more discolouration from your teeth, as dentists are permitted to use a higher concentration of bleaching agent than is used in take-home products.

Our zoom in chair teeth whitening treatment is carried out at the Sydney Dental Surgeon practice at Macquarie Street in the heart of Sydney CBD. Professional zoom teeth whitening carried out in our dental surgery can brighten teeth by several shades in one to two hours (spaced out over several appointments). This is much faster than can be achieved using home teeth whitening kit.

We may also be able to remove more discoloration from your teeth, as zoom teeth whitening dentists are permitted to use a higher concentration of bleaching agent than is used in take-home whitening kit products.

Below is the zoom in chair teeth whitening process at Sydney Dental Surgeons:

  1. To start the zoom teeth whitening treatment, we add a rubber coating to your lips and gums to make sure they are properly protected.
  2. A peroxide-based bleaching agent gel is then applied to your teeth and we then switch on the zoom chairside lamp. The zoom lamp light reacts with the bleaching agents on your teeth. This zoom teeth whitening process causes a chemical reaction which lightens the colour of your teeth.
  3. After a period, the gel and the protective coating are removed to reveal whiter teeth peroxide-based bleaching agents. We do recommend two to three zoom teeth whitening treatment appointments to achieve maximum teeth whiteness.

Teeth whitening at home kit Sydney

If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, we can provide you with a customised at home teeth whitening kit and instructions on how to use it. This home teeth whitening kit is designed by our teeth whitening dentists to help you achieve the level of teeth whiteness you want within 14 days and in the comfort of your own home.

  1. We'll take moulds of your teeth using dental putty. These home teeth whitening kit moulds are sent to a dental laboratory where your custom whitening trays will be made.
  2. When the trays have been manufactured, we'll check that they fit perfectly over your teeth and provide you with a peroxide-based whitening gel.
  3. Following your dentist's home teeth whitening kit instructions, you should place the gel in the whitening trays and wear them over your teeth for the amount of time specified. This should be repeated daily for as long as your dentist recommends.
