The bright smile you want when you want
Nothing can make such a dramatic difference to the appearance of your smile than a teeth whitening treatment from John Street Dental.
Watch TV, read a book, surf the internet or do the housework. The at-home whitening treatment we offer at John Street Dental allows you to brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home at times that suit you and don’t interrupt your busy schedule.
At-home teeth whitening uses customised trays. These look like thin mouthguards and unlike the DIY kits from the supermarket, chemist or off the internet, are created specifically for your teeth and gum shape.
These trays fit precisely and are worn for various periods, which may be as little as 30 mins to overnight, depending on the type of gel supplied. The active ingredients in the gel break down years of stains and lighten your tooth enamel and gradually whiten your teeth over a period of approximately 14-21 days, although many people notice a significant difference after only a few days.
It’s very important to follow the instructions you receive from your John Street Dental dentist exactly, as using too much gel or wearing the trays for longer than you’re supposed to can cause gum irritation or tooth sensitivity.
Teeth whitening is a simple, safe and effective method of achieving a whiter and brighter smile. Before you have any teeth whitening treatment, you must be in good oral health.
At John Street Dental will assess the health of your teeth and gums and advise you of the best technique for you to achieve a brighter more confident smile.
To make the most of your whitening treatment, we recommended you not drink tea, coffee or red wine or eat highly coloured foods for at least two days and abstain from smoking for four days.
Teeth whitening is only effective on natural tooth enamel. After a whitening treatment many John Street Dental patients choose to replace porcelain or composite fillings, crowns and other restorations so they match the colour of their new smile.
