At Chatswood Family Dental Care we are highly experienced in tooth whitening procedures. It is a highly effective and safe technique. We particularly like it because it gives great results without doing any harm to the teeth. We use whatever materials are currently the best available, so they are updated from time to time. According to World authorities the current state of the art technique, to give the best results that last, and have the least number of undesirable side effects, involves a custom Dentist-made mouth guard-like tray into which a special whitening solution is placed on the teeth nightly until the desired result is obtained, usually 2 to 3 weeks. We only use premium Colgate and Opalescence brand materials.
However please note that we do not offer the more expensive “instant” in-office tooth bleaching using special lights and “ lasers” as opposed to these safe and effective methods. International experts Dan Fischer, Gordon Christensen (view article), Van Haywood (view article), Australian expert Geoffrey M Knight (view article) , and even the American Dental Association (view article) all make the point that such techniques offer little or temporary benefit and can even be dangerous.
