Teeth Whitening

Treat your smile, treat your soul

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive dental treatment that lifts stains from the pores of teeth and lightens the colour of natural tooth enamel, leading to the appearance of whiter, brighter teeth.

Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed In-Office Whitening

Philips Zoom! in-office whitening uses an advanced blue LED light-accelerated whitening system to deliver dramatic results in minimal time! It can reverse stains from food and drinks, ageing and even discolouration from some types of medication, resulting in a smile that can be up to 8 shades whiter!

After applying gingival barriers and preparing the mouth for whitening, your dental professional will apply a layer of advanced whitening gel to your teeth, after which a WhiteSpeed blue LED lamp will be positioned for 15 minutes to accelerate the whitening process. After 3 repeats, the procedure is done and you will leave the clinic with an instantly brighter, more confident smile! For optimum retention, a single syringe of take home whitening is also provided to the patient as well as custom made whitening trays prepared during the appointment.

Avant Garde Dental also stocks whitening gel refills for our patients to purchase as the need arises.

Zoom Whitening achieves great long-lasting results and is a great option for instant brighter, whiter teeth!

How do I optimise teeth whitening results?

The main factors that will determine the success of your whitening are diet, age and existing condition of the teeth. Regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning will optimize long-term results. It’s recommended that patients align their whitening regime to when they have their dental teeth cleaned.

Will my teeth be sensitive?

Tooth whitening can increase sensitivity in some cases, generally, it is mild and will resolve once the whitening is completed. If teeth are sensitive, we recommend using desensitising toothpaste during and after whitening to help reduce the discomfort. If sensitivity becomes extreme or prolonged, please contact the surgery (02) 9699 5199.

Will this damage my teeth?

Whitening will not damage teeth when the directions given by the dentist are followed. It temporarily dehydrates teeth as it draws out discolouration, this is why they become sensitive. If patients frequently whiten their teeth, they will experience more sensitivity. Desensitising toothpaste will assist in relieving sensitivity. Whitening does not increase the likelihood of tooth decay, patients should always maintain regular check-ups.
