Teeth Whitening

Are you self conscious about the colour of your teeth? If yellowing or stains on your teeth are holding you back from smiling, you should consider a professional whitening treatment from DNA Dental.

Causes of discolouration

Teeth will naturally discolour with age, however, there are some things that we put in our mouths that can cause greater staining to our teeth. Coffee, tea, tobacco and red wine are the main offenders. Teeth whitening can effectively remove these stains.

Different types of Treatment Options

Here at DNA Dental, we offer two options for teeth whitening. The first is an ‘in the chair’ whitening treatment administered by our fully qualified staff. This option usually takes around 1 hour and results can be seen immediately. This is the most efficient way to whiten your teeth. This is done via placing whitening gel on the teeth and using an ultraviolet light to activate it.

The second option is a take home whitening kit provided by the dentist. This is a professional grade whitening treatment, custom made for each client. The dentist will make impressions of your teeth and provide you with custom trays. The dentist will also take you through how to correctly use the whitening treatment. You should start to notice results within 2 weeks of commencing treatment, provided you have correctly followed the dentists instructions. Once your teeth have been whitened, you will be advised how to maintain the results.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
