Teeth Whitening

If your smile is looking dull, either because the ageing process has caused your teeth to become yellow or your lifestyle habits have caused your teeth to become stained, professional teeth whitening can provide a boost. A whiter, brighter smile is more attractive, giving you a more youthful look and maybe even improving your self-confidence.

At Gawler Dental Clinic, we offer a take-home whitening system that patients can use over a couple of weeks—usually for about a half-hour to an hour at a time, based on your dentist’s recommendation. We provide custom trays to ensure that more of the whitening gel comes into contact with the teeth for consistent, reliable results our patients love.

You can ask about professional teeth whitening the next time you come to our Gawler, SA dental office for a routine exam and cleaning. We recommend that patients whiten their teeth after a clean for a better outcome.

Is Professional Teeth Whitening Safe?

Professional teeth whitening as dispensed by your dentist is safe, and we will go over instructions to help ensure you do the procedure properly once you get the whitening kit home.

How Can I Make My Teeth Whitening Results Last?

The best way to keep your smile white is to avoid those foods and beverages that might have stained your teeth in the first place. When you do indulge, rinse your mouth with water afterwards.

If you are a cigarette smoker, you should consider quitting—and not just for the sake of your teeth, but also your overall well-being.

We also recommend using our take-home whitening kit to give yourself touch-up treatments whenever you notice your teeth starting to look dull again.

What About Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products?

There is no shortage of products you can purchase in shops or at the chemist that make promises about whitening your teeth. Many of them might be able to remove some surface stains from your teeth. But the truth is that the strength of these teeth whitening systems is not as strong as what you can get from your dentist. Without custom trays, any results are usually inconsistent because it’s difficult to predict how much whitening gel will come into contact with your teeth.

Many people also report sensitivity after using these products because it gets all over the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Often, over-the-counter products are misused.
