Teeth Whitening Gold Coast

Even if you do follow a meticulous teeth cleaning regime, your teeth will likely still discolour or yellow over time. It’s difficult to avoid as foods containing colourants, or drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine will gradually stain your teeth. Smoking, aging, certain medications, and excessive fluoride can also cause discolouration in your teeth.

How does teeth whitening work?

You’ll receive your own, take-home, Be Dental-created teeth whitening kit. Your kit will include laboratory-created, custom trays for your teeth, a whitening peroxide gel, and a shade guide to compare your teeth with.

We’ll begin by taking impressions of your teeth so we can create moulds for your dental trays. We use a digital impression method, so you won’t have to worry about those uncomfortable impression materials against your gums. It also minimises the time of your appointment.

You’ll receive your fully-custom whitening trays, as well as your whitening gel, instructions for the kit, and a shade guide to track your progress. The whitening tray is like a very thin sports mouthguard. This will be filled with the whitening solution and placed over your teeth. We typically recommend whitening for a period of one to two hours per day.

How long will teeth whitening last?

You should see the first results in the first week or two of using your teeth whitening kit. How long the whitening lasts depends on how well you take care of your teeth and It will also depend on whether you’re still consuming those staining foods and drinks — it’s especially important to avoid these within one week of the teeth whitening treatment. Items to avoid include:

  • Tea or coffee
  • Red wine
  • Cola drinks
  • Tobacco
  • Beetroot
  • Strong curries

Your teeth whitening kit will come with enough gel to repeat the treatment and freshen up your results at any stage.
