Tooth Whitening is one of our most popular treatments at Atlantic Dental. We are using the latest, clinically proven technologies and the treatment is minimally invasive. Patients will initially have a detailed oral examination to ensure they are dentally fit for teeth whitening. We will discuss the options and determine which option will be the best for the patient. Most patients require a dental hygienist session beforehand to remove stain, tartar and eliminate any gum inflammation. This is essential to ensure the treatment is successful and no damage to gums or teeth are caused.
Teeth Whitening can often rejuvenate your smile without the need for extensive work such as crowns or veneers. We often combine teeth whitening with Composite Bonding (cosmetic bonding)
Air Flow Clean
For patients with naturally white teeth but stain caused by coffee, tea, smoking etc. we offer an additional cleaning procedure “Air Flow” which consists of small particles (powder) applied in ” Jet washer” type device onto the surface of the teeth. This will painlessly remove these stains and rejuvenate your smile.
We will assess your teeth, determine your current shade. With preoperative shade taking including intra- and extraoral photos. We will take impressions (moulds of your teeth) or digitally scan your teeth with our Trios 3 shape scanner. The whitening trays are produced (in-house) with our Pressure forming machine (Ministar S, Scheu-Dental, Germany). You’ll receive the trays, whitening gel (day or night) and detailed instructions. We also offer “Tooth Mousse” for patients with sensitive teeth or higher risk patients (high caries risk due to sugar intake. existing fillings).
Tray Teeth Whitening is a proven and safe method to increase the shade of your teeth. It is gentle to the teeth and the trays can be used to maintain the shade. In cases of slight to moderate sensitive teeth, this is the recommended method of teeth whitening.
For patients who require a quicker result, we offer Zoom! in-surgery whitening. You can sit in a relaxed and calm environment for over an hour while your teeth are gradually whitened. In addition, you’ll receive custom made whitening trays and gel to maintain your rejuvenated smile at home.
Individual teeth which are discoloured due to root canal treatment can also be whitened. This is called internal whitening. We, at Atlantic Dental, can offer treatment for such teeth.
