Your pearly whites naturally discolour over time and with age. Certain foods and drinks, such as tea, coffee and red wine, smoking, childhood illnesses, medications, and physical trauma, can also contribute to discolouration. At Hamilton Family Dental, we offer high-quality, affordable teeth whitening in NZ.
It’s hard not to feel confident when your teeth are shining. Teeth whitening can offer you a real boost to your self-esteem, and this is one reason why it’s become such a popular procedure in recent years. Plus, with a growing range of take-home teeth whitening kits available, you can get a brighter smile from the comfort of your living room
We suggest bleaching if you would like to whiten the natural shade of your teeth. It is a standard procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Dental professionals use several different techniques for bleaching and teeth whitening in NZ.
Regardless of your preferred treatment option, you should see a professional dentist or hygienist for a consultation to check your suitability for whitening treatment. During this consultation, your hygienist or dentist will examine your oral health and identify any treatment you might need to have done before you go ahead with your whitening to ensure that it is as efficient as possible.
Professional whitening procedures done in a dental clinic are one of the fastest and most effective ways to brighten your teeth. They will usually take around one and a half to two hours to complete, depending on the degree of teeth whitening in NZ you want, and offer almost ‘instant’ results.
A dentist or trained hygienist will apply a protective gel to your lips and gums before applying whitening gel, which contains the bleaching agent hydrogen peroxide, to your teeth.
A special LED light activates the gel. It might be challenging to keep your mouth open for so long, but listening to music or watching a movie can help distract you. Best of all, you’ll usually only require one treatment.
On your first visit to Hamilton Family Dental, our dentist will take an alginate impression of your teeth to make a custom dental tray for your teeth whitening in NZ.
Once this process is finished, the impression will be sent to the laboratory. Within days, your complete, customised whitening kit will be ready to be collected. Your kit will contain:
Once you’re home, apply a small drop of gel inside each tooth impression. Place the trays on your teeth, and then sit back and relax for a few hours.
After the procedure, remove and rinse both trays and brush your teeth.
Repeat the process over the next week or two until you have achieved your desired level of tooth whitening.
So relax and enjoy a glass of red wine on a long summer evening or a coffee in the morning to get you going without having to worry about your teeth paying the price. With our professional teeth whitening services, we’ll keep your pearly whites bright and shining. Click here to book an appointment with the Hamilton Family Dental team or contact us at07-9498492
