What To Do With Your Teeth Whitening Kit
Are your discoloured teeth eclipsing your beautiful smile? Have you noticed lately that your teeth are stained due to prolonged usage of caffeinated beverages, alcohol, and smoking? Sunshine Dental Group in Melbourne offers teeth whitening services to restore the shine and dazzle back to your smile.
Consult with your dentist. Your dentist can provide a thorough assessment and determine the best course of treatment for you. Your dentist will take into consideration several factors like the causes of discolouring or staining or your teeth, your overall lifestyle, examination of your gums and teeth to determine their healthiness. From there, they will determine if teeth whitening is the most ideal solution for you.
Ideally, your teeth whitening treatment will commence in a dental clinic. However, with an increasing number of people preferring teeth whitening treatment in the comfort of their homes, your dentist can offer home teeth whitening kits customised for you. This kit offers you the flexibility of doing your whitening treatment at your preferred time. These home teeth whitening kits are a great option for people wanting to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their homes at their own leisure time.
How to use your teeth whitening kit
Your dentist will take moulds of our teeth and create custom fitted trays for you. Along with your customised teeth mould trays, you will be given a whitening gel as well. Your dentist would thoroughly explain the working of these trays to you and resolve all the doubts you have. The home teeth whitening kits are fairly simple to use. All you need to do is fill this teeth mould tray with the whitening gel each evening and wear this tray for about 30-45 minutes depending on the intensity of your treatment. The duration of this treatment is usually for 2 weeks; however, it can vary a bit depending on the intensity of the treatment.
A lot of over the counter teeth whitening options are available these days at the pharmacy such as whitening toothpastes, teeth trays and gels. Toothpastes can help eliminate the stains, but they are not as effective as the teeth whitening gels. Over the counter whitening gels might contain harmful chemicals like hydrogen peroxide that might cause harm to the teeth and gums. Over the counter teeth trays are not custom made but are one size fits all, they might result in patchy colouring of your teeth if it does not fit perfectly. Very often the home teeth whitening kits purchased online do not publish their ingredients. Using such kits can be harmful to your teeth.
It is advisable to use the customised home teeth whitening kits designed by your dentist in order to eliminate the risks associated with teeth whitening. For more details on home teeth whitening kits, please contact Sunshine Dental Group on (03) 9311 1056.
