White and bright: DIY teeth whitening with Main Street Dental

Over time, some of our favourite beverages including tea, coffee and red wine can alter the appearance of our teeth, leaving a stained, discoloured smile.

Sometimes even a regular oral hygiene routine of daily tooth brushing and flossing can't reverse the effects of this staining, but don't despair, a teeth whitening solution from Main Street Dental can help you out!

At Main Street Dental we recommend our DIY home whitening solution, with one of our skilled dentists creating a customised teeth whitening treatment for you.

This whitening kit can come in handy for the upcoming spring wedding season, as well as other special occasions such as the Spring Racing Carnival, graduations, birthdays, anniversaries and the odd social outing.

DIY home whitening is a safe, convenient procedure which has been proven to achieve results. Simply book in an appointment with your Main Street Dental dentist who will proceed with an oral exam, before taking an impression of your teeth to create a custom-fitted plastic tray.

This tray will hold the bleaching agent to whiten your teeth, ensuring that this is placed correctly without affecting your gums.

Your dentist will then run through how to use the whitening kit, explaining how the bleach is applied in conjunction with the trays. This whitening bleach is usually applied for a period of 2-4 weeks, with some gels left for up to eight hours at a time delivering a shorter treatment period of one week.

These whitening kits generally use peroxide or peroxide-generating compounds as the key whitening ingredient. Treatment results will last for around 1-2 years, treating only natural teeth, not veneers , fillings , crowns or dentures.

Be sure to follow your dentist's instructions to get the best out of your whitening treatment and ensure the safety of your oral health.
