Teeth Whitening in Sherwood, Brisbane

Teeth whitening is one of the quickest, easiest and most popular ways to improve your smile, by lightening the existing shade of your natural teeth. It can be carried out by our team here at Sherwood Dental, or from the comfort of your own home. Professional whitening products (those sold or administered by a dental professional) are totally safe and don’t damage the teeth in any way. A peroxide-based gel penetrates the teeth to remove stains from the inner, dentine layer.

There are many reasons why teeth can become discoloured – diet is often the main factor:

  • Coffee and tea (even green tea)
  • Red wine
  • Existing, discoloured/darker fillings and crowns
  • Ageing
  • Certain foods – berries, curries, anything with turmeric
  • Specific medications
  • Damage to the teeth
  • Smoking

We’ll need to see you first for a quick consultation, to check that your teeth are suited to having whitening. We can also discuss which whitening options would best suit your needs.

Types of whitening

Home whitening involves wearing whitening gel in custom-made trays, usually for 14 consecutive days (for 30-60 minutes each day). In-chair whitening is done in a single appointment, for just over 2 hours. The results of home and in-chair whitening are fairly similar, so people usually make the decision based on convenience and cost. Speak with one of the Sherwood Dental team to find out more.
