Paddington Teeth Whitening
If you are looking for a quick and easy way to change the natural colour of your teeth then you are on the right page.
“Teeth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the existing shade of your teeth without having to remove any of the teeth surface”.
As we age our teeth will change colour due to natural wear. Our teeth are also susceptible to stains from food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking.
Professional teeth whitening is a simple and common procedure. Dr Henry can discuss your whitening options to see which procedure will be best suited for you to achieve the most desirable results, including a shade assessment.
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products. Although they are less expensive, these non-professional procedures are often less effective and can produce significant side effects.
There are two Teeth Whitening options at Red Hill Dental
- Take-home Tray Teeth Whitening
- Zoom! Teeth Whitening at our clinic
The take-home kit is the most popular and commonly used method for teeth whitening.
This method involves taking the impressions of your teeth and making a custom-fitted tray. When using it, fill the tray with whitening gel, place it over the upper or lower teeth, and wear it for a specific period of time.
