The different types of teeth whitening options in Melbourne

In-office teeth whitening

Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne | Sapphire Laser Whitening

In-office teeth whitening works by producing a significant colour change in your teeth in short amount of time, usually within an hour. The procedure is done at the dentist’s office applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth after they have been protected with a special shield. Pro: more effective and longer-term results. Con: teeth feel sensitive for up to two weeks

Professionally Dispensed Take-Home Whitening Kits

These whitening kits are purchased from your doctor for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.

Pro: cheaper than a dentist procedure.

Con: Procedure takes longer

Over the counter whitening

Over the counter teeth whitening kits are store-bought and use a lower concentration gel than both in-office bleaching and take-home kits purchased from your doctor. While they are cheaper, they typically are less effective than methods that can be performed by your dentist because of the low concentration gel. Additionally, over the counter trays are not custom fit for your teeth, which can result in irritation to your gums while wearing the trays.

What is the Best teeth whitening option
VIEW

What is the Best teeth whitening option

Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne | Sapphire Laser Whitening

The most important question people ask is, what treatment is best? Professional teeth whitening treatments performed by the dentist or using an at-home whitener?

In order to answer that question, let’s take a closer look at the procedures… Peroxide based teeth whitening is determined by the concentration of peroxide in the whitener and the amount of time the whitener is in contact with the surface of the teeth. So for the teeth to whiten, they need to be exposed to an appropriate teeth whitener for an appropriate amount of time. Hence, in order to get the same degree of lightening, a teeth whitening system may either employ a low concentration whitener for a long period of time (at home teeth whitening products use this method) or a higher concentration whitener for a short period of time (professional teeth whitening treatments performed by dentists use this method). If you are using at-home teeth whitening kit, you have the bleaching materials at home and perform the treatments on your own, unsupervised. An hour of in-office treatment can produce the same results as one or two weeks of at-home tray-based whitening.

In a professional teeth whitening treatment, the whitening effect is seen immediately and is accomplished in just a few appointments (usually one) and usually the treatment costs more than the at-home teeth whitening products. Whitening professional products contain 15-50% hydrogen peroxide. At home products contain 3-10% hydrogen peroxide. This is why professional teeth whitening treatments can bleach teeth much more quickly and effectively.

The teeth whitening system that is best for you can depend on factors such as: the amount of time you have available, your temperament, and how much money you have to spend.

In-office teeth whitening Process

In-office teeth whitening Process

Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne | Sapphire Laser Whitening

The professional teeth whitening process begins with a minor cleaning and removal of any plaque along the gum line.

  • Once this has been accomplished, its followed with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums and peroxide based gel is applied to the teeth. This gel contains a professional strength formula that ensures the laser accomplishes the maximum possible amount of teeth whitening.
  • Next, a special light is used to activate the gel. The process usually takes more than an hour for a full session of ZOOM or equivalent of 3 x 20 minutes per session or application, and whitens teeth by as many as 10 shades.
  • In extreme cases, the laser teeth whitening procedure may need to be repeated to address deep stains caused by medications such as tetracycline. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after procedure.

Sensitive Teeth and Laser Tooth Whitening

Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne | Sapphire Laser Whitening

One of the major side effects of tooth whitening is that it can increase the sensitivity of your teeth so it is advisable to avoid very hot and also very cold drinks or food shortly after your treatment.

  • Even if you are one of the many people who have sensitive teeth, professional teeth whitening is still an option for a brighter smile. The tooth whitening process is usually accomplished in a single visit, reducing the need for repeated uses of the bleaching gel. This provides a great solution for people with sensitive teeth, and those who want instantaneous results.

Candidates For In-Office Teeth Whitening

Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne | Sapphire Laser Whitening

Most people are potential candidates for the whitening procedure. However, there are a few exceptions: It is not advisable to undertake whitening procedures under these circumstances

  • Age and pregnancy issues. Here whitening is not available for those under 16 years of age as the nerve of the teeth is large at this stage of life. It could render the nerve more sensitive or cause irritation. Pregnant or lactating women are also not advised to use this method.
  • Sensitive teeth and allergies. Those having sensitive teeth or gums, with receding or defective repairs need to see their dentist before engaging a whitening process. Allergies to peroxide will definitely not be favoured with a bleaching product
  • Gum disease, damaged teeth, cavities, and exposed roots. People with damaged teeth or worn enamel are not advised to use any bleaching method. A bleaching agent might enter any cavity and cause an inside damage. Hence it is necessary to treat such defects before launching into a whitening session. Bleaching does not work on roots also since they do not have the enamel layer on which bleaching acts.
  • Fillings, crowns and restored portions. Dental restorations sometimes make use of colored fillings or resin based products (crowns, veneers, bridges) and these do not whiten with bleaching. So an unequal whitening pattern may appear if bleaching is applied under these conditions. It is better to proceed with whitening before attempting any restoration exercise on the teeth. Best on your individual needs, we will advise on the method of treatment applicable in such cases, and confirming whether any importance is to be given to the bleaching or restoration exercise first.
  • Those expecting dramatic happenings may be disappointed with results below their expectations. People using harmful products like tobacco and wine need to be aware that the result may not stay for longer periods if they do not avoid such products. A more balanced expectation taking into consideration one’s own lifestyle and hygiene pattern would give a more objective approach to the results’ appreciation. A good standard indication is comparison of color of your teeth should be a little whiter than that of your eyes.
  • Heavily stained teeth. A light yellowish tint will definitely disappear under bleaching; less effective results would appear on brown tinted ones where as grayish or purple stained ones may not reveal any effect. Certain blue-gray stains which, are normally caused by tetracycline take even more time to whiten and require around 6 month of intensive care at the dentist’s. Darker stains may be appropriately treated by other methods, for example: veneers, crowns, bonding.

Is laser teeth whitening permanent?

Is laser teeth whitening permanent?

Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne | Sapphire Laser Whitening

Unfortunately, no. The longevity of your teeth whitening results will somewhat depend on how you care for your teeth after the treatment. If you frequently consumer beverages and foods that are prone to staining, your results will not last nearly as long as for those who avoid those foods and drinks. If you are a smoker, it is important to note that the use of tobacco products can create tooth discoloration and creates a higher risk for you to develop cancers of the gums, mouth, and throat.

If you do drink coffee or dark sodas or enjoy a glass of red wine in moderation, or if you love to eat dark berries, you can help prevent stains by rinsing your mouth or brushing soon after consumption. Also, make sure to keep up with your dental hygiene and professional cleanings every six months for maximum results and dental care.

Whether you elect to have your teeth lightened or not, it is recommended to brush your teeth or rinse with water as soon as possible after enjoying any staining beverages or foods. Also, be sure to follow good oral hygiene practices by brushing your teeth at least two times per day and flossing at least once daily to remove plaque.

SAPPHIRE TEETH WHITENING - Best Laser Teeth Whitening system in Melbourne

Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne | Sapphire Laser Whitening

What makes Sapphire Teeth Whitening unique compared with other In-office Teeth Whitening system?

Also known as LUMIBRITE In office whitening, Sapphire teeth whitening is unique, and is ideal for patients who prefer a more holistic approach because this treatment does not include the use of UV light to activate whitening agents. The creators of the Professional Sapphire Whitening System have engineered a unique mix of active ingredients to ensure that sensitivity is minimized while teeth whitening effects are maximized. In addition to whitening components, the Sapphire gel also contains minerals and fluoride, allowing teeth to remain healthy and strong. Also included in the whitening gel is a desensitizing agent, which decreases the risk of sensitive teeth following the whitening procedure. If you have sensitive teeth, or just want as painless a process as possible, the Sapphire Teeth Whitening System is right for you. Sapphire is much easier on teeth than other in-office treatments.

The Sapphire System stands out as a remarkably fast and effective teeth whitening solution. It has proven to whiten teeth by up to 7 shades in 30 minutes.

The Sapphire professional chair side treatment

Before the teeth can be bleached, surface plaque, debris, and calculus need to be removed by way of prophylaxis (teeth cleaning). If signs of gum inflammation and decay are present, these will need to be managed by the dentist before the Sapphire whitening gel is applied. Usually, the dentist will photograph the teeth prior to applying the bleaching gel, so before-and-after comparisons can be made.

The Sapphire Professional Chair side treatment contains 25% hydrogen peroxide. The whitening gel is applied to the teeth for either 30 minutes or 60 minutes, depending on severity of staining. Though results vary for each patient, Sapphire whitening gel lightens teeth by approximately 7-8 shade in 30 minutes and 12 shades in 60 minutes. Sapphire whitening is chemically activated, so no heat, lasers or lamps are required.

What Should I Expect From My Sapphire Teeth Whitening Procedure?

Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne | Sapphire Laser Whitening

Sapphire Teeth Whitening is a fast and simple procedure, and should take no more than 30 minutes to an hour. Your dentist will perform a preliminary dental exam, to make sure that the treatment will be beneficial for you. You will be given protective eye gear to wear, to shield your eyes during the procedure. Your gums will also be protected, to prevent exposure to the bleaching gel and plasma light. During the treatment, you can continue to relax by taking a nap, watching TV, or listening to music.

Unlike other whitening treatments that only use bleaching chemicals, Sapphire Whitening is able to produce brighter results in a shorter amount of time by combining light therapy with advanced chemistry. The brightening effect is amplified when the Plasma Arc Light is applied to the whitening gel, which triggers a chemical reaction that lightens the tooth almost immediately.

Discomfort after the procedure is usually minimal or nonexistent, though some patients may experience enhanced tooth sensitivity to the cold. These temporary symptoms should last between 1 to 3 days, and can be relieved by over the counter medication. Though Sapphire Whitening is overwhelmingly safe for the vast majority of patients, it is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, children younger than 13 years of age, and patients taking light sensitive medication. Results can be maintained by following proper dental hygiene and brushing occasionally with Sapphire take-home whitening gel.

The complete teeth whitening procedure takes just over an hour. The teeth whitening begins with a preparation period followed by 45 minutes of whitening. A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Sapphire Teeth Whitening session.

The Sapphire Whitening Process

Treatment begins by protecting the lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. A hydrogen peroxide-based gel is then applied. The Sapphire procedure uses a light bleaching unit that has been designed to filter out infrared emissions. This feature helps to insure that the teeth being treated don’t become over-heated, which is important for your comfort. The whitener is usually applied to the teeth in two 30-minute applications. Upper and lower teeth are treated at the same time, and the total time including pre- and post-treatment is somewhere around 90 minutes.
