Teeth Whitening

Stained teeth may cause you to hide your smile or avoid smiling altogether. Stained teeth are nothing to be ashamed of, as it is a natural part of ageing, but with the standards society has today and the permanence of digital images, you might want a solution. At Dr Ben Dunster's, we offer professional teeth whitening to help our patients enjoy greater confidence with a brilliant smile.

Both in-chair and take-home whitening systems provide excellent results when performed under the supervision of an experienced dentist. 

With in-chair whitening, you will notice an improvement in the colour of your teeth in one visit that lasts about an hour or so.

Take-home teeth whitening options are often less expensive and are just as effective when you follow treatment protocol for about two weeks.

You might feel tempted to purchase commercial whitening products. You might achieve subtle results using these products, but since they are not customised, side effects such as sensitivity and gum irritation are common. Professional teeth whitening gel is also much more efficient and eliminates abrasive polishers, commonly found in whitening toothpaste.
