Birdseye Dental | Teeth Whitening | What is the best teeth whitening treatment?

The best teeth whitening treatment depends on your desired outcome

When choosing the best teeth whitening treatment for you, it’s important to understand the relation that stained teeth have to the health of your teeth.

Not all stains are cosmetic, sometimes they can be a sign that something is wrong with the tooth, or that the stain is too deep for teeth whitening—in which case you would need a porcelain veneer, or dental bonding, to conceal the stain.

Other times the cause of tooth discolouration is decay. To treat tooth decay requires removing the decayed tooth pulp and replacing it with a white filling. The filling material will be colour-matched to your tooth to blend in.

Best teeth whitening treatments

At Birdseye Dental Group in Melbourne, we offer a range of teeth whitening options to suit you and your needs. For fast effective teeth whitening with long-lasting results, we offer Zoom! teeth whitening; this treatment takes an hour and will whiten your teeth up to 8 shades. The results of Zoom! last between 9 and 12 months depending on how well you look after your teeth.

For patients who don’t want to sit in the dentist’s chair for an hour, we offer take-home whitening options such as DayWhite and NiteWhite. These teeth take-home teeth whitening products allow you to whiten your teeth in your own time, in the convenience of your own home and at your own pace.

For patients whose teeth are too stained for these treatments, porcelain veneers, crowns and dental bonding are all effective options for improving the appearance of your teeth. Porcelain crowns not only look good but also protect a weak or damaged tooth, which is why they are often used on a tooth that is been treated with root canal therapy.
