Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening in Camberwell at Hartwell Dentistry

Are your teeth discoloured from smoking, coffee, age, tooth decay or illness?

If so, our teeth whitening will give you a whiter, brighter smile!

When you have whitening at Hartwell Dentistry, you will be a member of our whitening for life program.

Home Tray Vital Whitening

With this treatment, you apply a gel containing typically 6% hydrogen peroxide or 18% carbamide peroxide to your teeth for several hours, or overnight, using a custom-made tray. A custom-made tray is vacuum-formed onto a model of your mouth, which allows us to determine the perfect amount of gel that is in contact with your teeth.

The design of the tray ensures that there is close contact between the bleaching gel and the surface of your teeth, without the tray impinging on the gums and causing discomfort. You should keep the trays and obtain new stocks of bleaching gel in order to repeat the whitening periodically. In most cases the trays will continue to fit your mouth for many years.

Whitening for life

After the initial set up cost, if you are in our hygiene maintenance program, you can do touch-up whitening for life without extra cost.

The benefits of teeth whitening:

  • Increases your confidence and happiness. Flash your pearly whites more often! Teeth whitening can restore confidence in your smile again, lifting your mood and increasing your self-esteem.
  • Relatively Safe. When whitening is supervised and carried out according to instructions, it’s a safe, simple procedure.
  • Quite Painless. Teeth whitening doesn’t hurt. Some people feel a small amount of sensitivity, but this sensitivity is self-limiting and will resolve within days.
  • Long lasting. Your teeth will always be lighter than they once were. However with our habits, tea, coffee, wine there maybe a need to ‘touch up’ once or twice a year.
