Tooth whitening at Grandstand Dental Care Melbourne is the whitening of teeth through professional treatments or bleaching products. There are many natural means of whitening teeth by good oral hygiene and regular dental cleans, and our dentists and hygienists can professionally clean your teeth to rejuvenate your smile and determine if you are suitable for professional bleaching. Not everyone’s teeth are suitable for whitening. Your gums and teeth should be healthy before whitening; our cosmetic Dentists at Grandstand Dental Care can assess your teeth for suitability for tooth whitening.
Existing tooth decay, existing restorations (e.g. fillings, crowns and veneers), any other oral diseases or conditions will need to treated prior to whitening to avoid sensitivity. Also, there are many causes of discolouration, (e.g. diet, ageing etc.) and whether it is on the surface or inside the teeth. From the correct diagnosis of the reasons for discolouration, one can determine if tooth whitening is the right approach or an alternative therapy will obtain better results.
