What are the Most Common Teeth Whitening Methods on the Gold Coast?

There are many different methods you can use to safely whiten your teeth on the Gold Coast including in-chair teeth whitening and teeth whitening take-home kits. Dr. Andrea would generally recommend the take home method when approaching a dentist due to its gentle and easily controlled effectiveness. 

Usually the method used to bleach your teeth will involve the chemical carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. What this does is oxidises the discolouration of your teeth and help to lighten the shade. It may sound like a frightening method with all these technical terms, but it is actually widely proven to be a safe teeth whitening option.

Why Should I Go to my Dentist to Get my Teeth Whitened?

With so many alternatives available at your local supermarket or shopping centre, this is a very valid question to ask. However, we would definitely recommend you whitening your teeth with a dentist because of both the benefits of the method and the potential risks which common over-the-counter methods come with. 

The biggest benefit of having your dentist whiten your teeth is safety. We will employ the measures of protective glasses along with specific gels and custom made trays, which are designed to protect the soft tissue in your mouth and around your gums from being affected by the bleach. We also ensure that your teeth are healthy enough to bleach by doing a comprehensive evaluation prior to starting the bleaching process – preventing complications and sensitivity.

What Are The Benefits Of A Take-home Teeth Whitening Kit From My Dentist?

The biggest benefit of this kind of teeth whitening is that you get the professional advice for the best outcome, and then get to perform the whitening in the comfort of your own home. This means you can pop on your favourite show and whiten your teeth in your custom trays without needing to worry about being seen. 

This also means that if you experience any tooth or gum sensitivity, you’re already in a comfortable environment where you don’t need to worry about rushing home to relax.

What are the Risks of Whitening My Own Teeth?

There are also some potential risks associated with other methods which are sold via social media or over the counter in the supermarket. In line with the recommendations from the ADA, there is an increased risk of undesired side-effects when it comes to employing teeth whitening methods which aren’t approved or carried out by a dentist. On top of this, you may be unaware of already existing dental health issues which could make your particular product ineffective or in the worst-case scenario, potentially dangerous. 

Some of these nasty side effects include heightened tooth sensitivity; chemical blisters or burns on the gums and/or mouth; uneven colouration and ineffective results, reduced strength of the enamel which can in some cases be irreversible.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe for Gold Coast Locals?

Ultimately, any Gold Coast dentist-approved teeth whitening method is safe to use; however, the store-bought methods cannot compete with the in-chair dentist method when it comes to safety and effectiveness. Having a qualified dentist whiten your teeth is the simplest way to get lasting results that won’t damage your teeth or give an underwhelming result.

How Much Does Gold Coast Teeth Whitening Cost?

The cost of getting your teeth whitened with us at Fresh Family Dental is $229. This price covers the total whitening package of advice from your dentist, custom made trays, and two tubes of bleach to get you started. Additional bleach can be purchased when required to help you get the naturally brighter smile that you’re looking for.

Talk to Us First About Options on the Gold Coast for Teeth Whitening

Before going ahead with any kind of teeth whitening treatment on the Gold Coast, we recommend you come in for a consultation. This simply makes sure that the procedure you decide to go with will be delivering the result you desire. Often, we get clients telling us they want their teeth whitened, but not to the point where it is unrealistically white. That is why we like to go for a natural look, by whitening up to 3 shades lighter, rather than go for unnaturally white smiles. 

Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to control the level of brightness you want to achieve with other options available for purchase. Ultimately, speaking to us first could save you time, energy, and money down the track. If you’d like to talk more about the methods we use or the products we endorse, please give the team a call or visit us in person.
