4 Reasons for In-Chair Teeth Whitening

Whether you want to present your best side at an important event or hoping to improve your social or professional life in general, having pristine white teeth will go a long way towards achieving your goal.

There’s a reason why professional teeth whitening remains one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments around and it’s not just because it is becoming more affordable or convenient.

There are many advantages to getting your teeth whitened professionally, as opposed to buying over-the-counter (OTC) whitening products. Let’s take a look at some of the biggest reasons people go for professional in-chair whitening:


Your dentist knows your teeth better

With professional insights into your specific dental situation, your dentist is in the best position to determine what sort of discolouration you have and how best to get rid of the stains on your teeth. Knowing your dental history, your Canberra Teeth Whitening Dentist can best determine whether teeth whitening is a good idea based on your previous dental work. If you have had veneers or tooth coloured fillings done in the past, for example, the treatment may not be suitable. The whitening process may leave your teeth in uneven shades simply because your prosthetic teeth reacted differently to the whitening agent from the rest of your teeth. The dentist would be able to schedule the procedures in a particular order to help you achieve the most aesthetic and healthy results.


The procedure is safer

The in-chair whitening treatment would be administered by a trained dental practitioner in a clinical environment using sanitised instruments in observance of health and safety protocols.

Besides wearing protective devices, the Teeth Whitening Dentist knows exactly the amount of whitening agent that can be used, the exact time duration to achieve the right results without causing side effects and take necessary precautions to prevent the whitening gel from making contact with your soft tissue (gum and inside walls of your mouth).

In the unlikely event of any allergy or reactions, being inside a dental clinic in the hands of a dentist who is trained to handle any dental emergencies is literally your safest bet for any procedure involving teeth and gums.


The results are faster and better

Dentists are the only persons authorised to use beyond certain levels of whitening substance that promise faster and better results. OTC products typically contain less potent whitening ingredients because they are deemed unsafe if not administered by a trained dentist.

Teeth Whitening Dentists are able to deliver the amount of whitening required for tougher stains that OTC products simply cannot. Add to the fact that dentists are able to use other catalysts such as lasers or light intensity to speed up the process means that the in-chair whitening method is able to bring about shade reduction using less time with more visible results.


Professional oral exam and clean before whitening

At Molonglo Dental Surgery, our Canberra Dentist encourages all teeth whitening customers to go for an oral exam and cleaning prior to teeth whitening. As mentioned earlier, the oral exam will allow us to have a better idea about specific dental situation and check for any underlying issues that may interfere with the whitening procedure.

The professional clean will help to get rid of any food particles or plaque that may affect the whitening process. This way we can make sure that you are a good candidate and prepare your teeth accordingly before even the whitening starts.
