Teeth Whitening

a patient undergoing teeth whitening treatment

Teeth whitening is one of the most sought-after cosmetic dentistry services, offering a quick and effective way to enhance your smile’s brightness and beauty. At KB Village Dental, we combine advanced technology with expert care to deliver transformative results. A radiant smile awaits!

What Causes Teeth to Discolour?

Teeth discolouration is a common concern, with a range of causes changing our smiles. The regular consumption of coloured foods and beverages, such as curries, coffee, tea, and red wine, is often a major culprit. Aging, certain medications, smoking, and trauma can also contribute to discoloured teeth.

While various toothpastes and whitening systems in the market claim promising results, nothing matches the safety and effectiveness of professional treatments offered by your trusted North Sydney dentists.

In the realm of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening remains the top choice for those seeking a vibrant smile and a confidence boost. Patients are looking for whitening options that are not only effective but also convenient and comfortable.

Enter Philips Zoom! — a next-generation professional whitening solution designed to deliver stellar results with minimal discomfort, catering perfectly to the demands of modern life.

Teeth Whitening in North Sydney

In the heart of North Sydney, KB Village Dental proudly offers advanced teeth-whitening solutions tailored to your needs.

One of our premier offerings is the Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed, a leading name in teeth whitening and the top patient-requested brand in the US. This system is clinically proven to elevate your smile’s brightness by up to eight shades in a mere 45 minutes (excluding prep time). In a comparison study, WhiteSpeed delivered results over 50% more effectively than its leading ‘non-light’ competitors both immediately and in follow-ups after seven and thirty days.

For those who prefer the convenience of gradual at-home whitening, we proudly present Ultradent’s Opalescence whitening products. Here’s how it works: we take impressions of your teeth and craft custom-made bleach trays. These trays, which feel like a fine mouthguard, are then paired with Opalescence whitening gel. Over a couple of weeks, you can witness the magic unfold as your teeth gradually attain a radiant glow, all from the comfort of your home.

Have you experienced teeth whitening before and want to revive that sparkle? We’ve got you covered! For such patients, we offer Opalescence Go, which are disposable whitening trays, ensuring convenience and top-tier results.

To embark on your journey to a brighter smile, whether through the Philips Zoom! or our take-home systems, reach out to us at 02 9964 9166 and schedule a chat with Dr Evan at KB Village Dental. Let’s craft the gleaming smile of your dreams!

    FAQ: Teeth Whitening at KB Village Dental

    How much does teeth whitening cost in North Sydney?

    Teeth whitening costs in NSW, specifically in North Sydney, vary based on the method and equipment used. While over-the-counter kits such as whitening toothpastes or strips are affordable, professional treatments at our North Sydney clinic provide more lasting results. Reach out to us for more details on potential procedures, booking information, appointment times, and pricing.

    What does the teeth whitening process look like?

    The teeth-whitening process, whether at home or at our clinic, is tailored to the person’s preference. At-home methods involve using a whitening kit with toothpaste or strips. Whitening toothpastes combat plaque and surface stains, while strips contain gel for a deeper clean. In the clinic, we use advanced equipment and procedures.

    How long does teeth whitening take?

    The duration of our teeth-whitening procedures depends on the approach selected. Our in-office treatments deliver results in a single session, taking about an hour, using potent agents like hydrogen peroxide for speedy and lasting results.

    How long do the results of teeth whitening last?

    Results can span from a few months to a couple of years, depending on the whitening method and post-treatment oral care. Professional in-practice treatments can offer a radiant smile lasting anywhere between 6 months to 2 years. Regular cleaning, avoiding tooth decay, and proper oral hygiene can extend the results of professional treatments.

    Are there any side effects of teeth whitening?

    The most common side effect is tooth sensitivity. When whitening substances interact with enamel, it may irritate nerve endings. This discomfort in the teeth and gums is temporary and typically fades after a few days. If you experience any abnormal side effects or they last longer than expected, please get in touch with a member of our staff to discuss ways we can help.

    What are the risks of teeth whitening?

    The risks of teeth whitening vary depending on the type of whitening product used and the application method. Common risks include tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.. Sensitivity may arise when whitening agents touch the dentin beneath the enamel. It’s crucial to follow the given instructions to minimise these risks.

    What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

    Teeth whitening is a celebrated cosmetic dentistry service that elevates your smile’s aesthetics. Teeth whitening at our North Sydney location leads to an enhanced appearance and a brighter, whiter smile, bolstering self-confidence and overall satisfaction with your appearance.

    Is teeth whitening right for me?

    The answer depends on various elements like oral health, existing tooth colour, and desired outcomes. Teeth whitening effectively lightens teeth shades and mitigates surface stains. Nonetheless, we recommend consulting with your dentist and our team at KB Village Dental to find the right solution for you and your mouth.

    Does teeth whitening affect fillings, crowns, and veneers?

    Teeth whitening primarily affects natural tooth enamel. Fillings, crowns, and veneers might not lighten to the same degree as natural teeth. It’s crucial to consult with our North Sydney Dentistry team before the procedure to ensure cohesive whiteness across all teeth. Ultimately, dental restorations like fillings, crowns, and veneers are unaffected by teeth-whitening tools.

    Is fluoride okay to use after a tooth whitening procedure?

    Yes, using fluoride after a teeth-whitening procedure can help minimise sensitivity and maintain tooth health. It’s always important to follow the post-whitening instructions provided by our clinic.

    I'm from Milsons Point/Neutral Bay. Is your clinic easily accessible?

    Absolutely! We’re conveniently located for residents of North Sydney, from Milsons Point and Neutral Bay to Crows Nest and Kirribilli. Our area is well-connected, making your visits to our clinic easy and hassle-free.
