Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the simplest ways you can dramatically change your smile and improve your appearance.  Over the years, the effects of drinking coffee, tea, soft drink, red wine, and smoking eventually takes its toll on the teeth. This can leave the teeth looking dull and a yellowish colour. Most teeth will benefit from tooth whitening. Teeth whitening is a proven safe and effective way to brighten stained, discoloured teeth. At Ashton Dental Cairns we offer two types of teeth whitening services. Boost In-chair whitening and take home custom tray whitening.

Boost In-Chair Tooth Whitening – A Whiter Smile In One Hour

Boost is an in-office, chemically activated whitening treatment that offers results in less than an hour.  Boost is a dentist applied treatment that is chemically activated so no hot uncomfortable light is required. It’s ideal for people who want instant whitening results.

What will happen at your boost bleaching appointment?

Step 1.
The dentist will use a shade guide to establish the current shade of your teeth.

Step 2.
The teeth are polished with a gritty paste to remove any surface stains.

Step 3.
The dentist will apply a gel to the gums to protect them during the bleaching process.

Step 4.
The dentist will apply the Boost bleach product to your teeth and leave it to process for 20 minutes.

Step 5.
The bleach product is removed and step 4 is repeated.

Step 6.
You will see the results instantly and a final shade is taken to compare the results.

We recommend using a sensitive toothpaste for the next few days as the teeth can be a little sensitive.

Home Bleaching

Take home bleaching is an effective easy way to lighten your teeth that offers fast results and allows you to do it at a time that suits you. Custom made trays are made to fit the shape of your teeth, a   small amount of bleach is applied to the trays and placed on the teeth for about an hour a day until the desired shade of the teeth is obtained (usually 1-2 weeks).

Step 1.
The dentist will use a shade guide to establish the current shade of your teeth.

Step 2.
The dentist will take an upper and lower mould of your teeth for the custom made trays. These trays will usually be ready the following day for you to collect.

Step 3.
The dentist will demonstrate how to use the bleach to obtain the best results.
