In-chair Teeth Whitening
To increase your self-esteem
Tooth discolouration is a common problem, and it can affect your self-confidence. If you want to feel more comfortable approaching new people or laughing freely without holding back, then consider getting dental treatment for tooth whitening.
Better dental health
To get the best results from teeth whitening treatments, your dentist will first ensure you are in good dental health. Before starting the whitening treatment, they check for problems or damage to ensure a successful final result.
Improve the appearance of your teeth:
Teeth discolouration is an unavoidable consequence of aging. Stains are one of the most common causes of tooth discolouration. If left untreated, stains can turn your pearly whites into an unattractive brown colour and make you look older. While it can't be avoided, there are some steps you may take to reduce discolouration and have brighter teeth. Having your teeth professionally whitened will improve your appearance, giving you a more youthful and healthier look.

FAQ’s About In Chair Teeth Whitening
People with healthy gums and teeth who have not had any dental restorations are ideal candidates for in-chair teeth whitening. It is more beneficial for those with yellowish teeth. While some people may find this procedure attractive, it is not for everyone.
Bleach may not be effective if you have front teeth that have been bonded or have tooth-coloured fillings. Bleach will not whiten these materials, and they will be evident if you whiten your other teeth. Consult with your dentist before getting a bleaching treatment, especially if you have a lot of fillings or crowns.
You may also not be suitable for tooth whitening if you have any of the following conditions:
- There are sensitive teeth in your mouth.
- There are dark stains or severe discolouration on your teeth.
- You smoke or use tobacco products.
Intrinsic stains develop within the dentin layer of a tooth, and they do not respond favourably to whitening treatments.
On the other hand, extrinsic stains are discolourations on the surface layer of a tooth or enamel that come from outside sources. Coffee, tea, dark-coloured soda, red wine, and tobacco products are all known to produce extrinsic stains. Extrinsic stains are not as permanent as intrinsic stains, but they can’t be removed with regular brushing.
Teeth whitening is a great way to get the bright smile you want. It’s most effective for individuals with yellow teeth and less successful when used on teeth with brown, grey, or purple discolouration. As a result, alternative dental cosmetic procedures or dental restorations are required.
Your dentist will first examine your teeth to determine their shade. It will give them an idea of how many bleaching sessions are needed. It can also help the dentist determine how strong a whitening solution needs to be to achieve the desired colour.
After examining your teeth, the dentist will clean and polish them. A dry surface takes in the whitening chemical well, so your dentist may use a gauze pad in your mouth for as long as it is required.
Cleaning your teeth before bleaching removes any plaque, which helps to ensure that the whitening process is as successful as possible. When applying peroxide solution, a tractor is used to prevent gum, tongue, and lip disruptions.
Application of the whitening agent:
The best bleaching agent for teeth whitening will be a high percentage of hydrogen peroxide, which is the ideal active ingredient in whitening. The front of your teeth will be bleached, but the back of them will not. Teeth whitening is intended to improve the appearance of your smile, and the backs of your teeth are unaffected.
The bleach solution penetrates and eliminates tooth stains from the inside out. The dentist uses a solution that stays on the teeth for around 30 minutes before moving on to the next stage.
The dentist will then clean your mouth thoroughly. This step is essential to make sure there are no residues left. The dentist will sometimes brush your teeth at this point, as the following stage is the application of fluoride treatment.
Fluoride varnish will be applied to your teeth to maintain their brightness and whiteness. Additionally, fluoride can help remove plaque from your teeth.
The cost of teeth whitening is determined by factors included in the treatment plan, including the kind of teeth-whitening product used, the degree of surface stains, and the number of teeth whitened.
The cost of teeth whitening at a dentist’s clinic in Australia can range between $200 and $260 per tooth.
Take-home whitening kits:
When it comes to whitening, at-home teeth whitening kits are a more cost-effective option than professional in-clinic whitening treatment. However, they require extra maintenance since the effect isn’t long-lasting. With dentist-supervised take-home whitening gel trays, results should be visible within two to three weeks. As long as you practise good oral hygiene, the effects typically last for four to six months.
Over-the-counter whitening kits:
Over-the-counter whitening kits are products you can buy at drugstores, grocery stores, and online. The idea behind them is that they are less risky than getting your teeth professionally whitened because they contain less of the chemicals used to bleach teeth. While over-the-counter teeth whitening kits are available without a prescription, more potent versions are available only at dental clinics.
Some of the most popular over-the-counter teeth whitening kits come in the form of toothpaste, gel, strips, and pens that you use at home. You can also purchase whitening trays that fit over your teeth. Consistent use of over-the-counter whitening treatments is necessary for them to be effective.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells used to cover the visible surfaces of your teeth. They may be an excellent method to conceal cosmetic flaws, such as severe discolouration or chipped teeth. They retain their position securely and allow you to eat and talk just as before with your natural dentition.
It is best to avoid foods that tend to stain your teeth to prevent them from re-staining and irritation. Usually, you’ll be able to return to your regular healthy diet within 24 to 72 hours.
- It is essential to brush your teeth thoroughly and floss regularly to maintain good oral health.
- Regular dental checkups should be scheduled at least twice a year, as well as appointments with your hygienist for proper teeth cleaning and polishing. Regular checkups will reduce dental decay and plaque accumulation.
- You may choose to use electric toothbrushes since they have several advantages, the most significant of which is the speed with which they remove plaque.
- Avoid smoking
- Don’t consume stain-causing beverages or foods.
- It would help if you used a straw when drinking acidic or sugary beverages. It will reduce the contact between the liquid and your teeth.
- When you consume highly pigmented foods or drinks, rinse your mouth immediately with water to prevent staining.
