Whitening Your Smile Can Lead to Better Oral Health Habits!
Teeth whitening is arguably the most popular cosmetic dental treatment currently available
It is also the most widely available cosmetic dental treatment. Nearly very dental practice provides some form of teeth whitening option, and even beauty spas and salons offer the service.
But did you know that people who get their teeth whitened are more likely to take better care of their oral health?
It makes sense.
Patients who get their teeth whitened, generally want to keep their teeth looking healthy and white. This means that they are more likely to maintain a proper oral hygiene routine as well as eat a healthy diet.
Eating certain fruits and vegetables (as well as certain cheeses) can help to keep your teeth healthy and white. Also, drinking water after meals can help to rinse food particles which optimises the effects of brushing and flossing.
How Smile Perfection Dental can help give you a whiter, brighter smile
At Smile Perfection Dental Group in Chermside and Aspley we offer in-office and take home teeth whitening kits. This provides our patients with the option of either getting it done in a single appointment at our practice or doing it in the comfort of their own home, in their own time.
Your teeth can become discoloured for a number of reasons:
- Red wine
- Some types of medication
Smile Perfection Dental offers two teeth whitening products: Zoom Tooth Whitening and the Pola Advanced Tooth Whitening System.
Zoom Tooth Whitening
This teeth whitening treatment is an in-chair treatment that can lighten your smile up to eight shades in just one appointment. The actual results of this treatment will depend on the condition of your teeth and how long the treatment lasts will depend on how you look after you teeth.
Pola Advanced Tooth Whitening System
If you are looking to whiten your smile in the convenience of your own home, the Pola Advanced Tooth Whitening System is the teeth whitening treatment for you. This is a take home whitening treatment and there are two options.
The first in Poladay—as the name suggests, you wear the custom-made trays during the day, and for the best results this treatment will take two weeks. You can either wear the trays twice a day for half an hour or once a day for 45 minutes. You should not eat, drink or smoke while wearing these trays.
The second option is Polanight: which is similar to Poladay except that you can either wear the trays overnight (no more than nine hours) or once a day for 90 minutes. Like Poladay, it is important that you do not eat, drink, or smoke while wearing the trays.
