A Guide To The Best Teeth Whitening Treatments
Think white, glowing teeth are just for the rich and famous?
Well, think again. Having a beautiful smile is easier than you might realize.
Actually, a beautiful smile is well worth the investment in time and effort. That is according to a study carried out by the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Ninety-four percent of the people surveyed in the study thought a nice smile would make them more appealing to the opposite sex.
While nearly three quarters (74%) thought a whiter smile would improve their career prospects.
One thing is for sure, having whiter teeth and a glowing smile will certainly enhance your appearance. But perhaps the invisible benefits, such as boosting confidence levels are what has an impact on your social and professional life.
Now, have you noticed that your teeth aren’t quite as white or sparkling as they once were?
Maybe now is the right time to take advantage of the market leading professional teeth whitening services in Woden here at Acacia Dental Group.
When choosing the best teeth whitening method, it’s important to realize that there are several factors to consider. Below we look at some of the factors for you to consider.
The Convenience Factor With Teeth Whitening
For obvious reasons, convenience is a major factor in why people decide to buy certain products and services. A lot of people lead busy lives, and so it makes sense that some people tend to go with a more convenient teeth whitening option.
Look, you only have to stroll down the aisle of your local pharmacy to see how many over-the-counter whitening kits there are these days.
However, while these might be more convenient, they certainly aren’t the best teeth whitening option available to you.
The strength and reliability of over-the-counter teeth whitening options, such as strips and toothpaste, just aren’t able to compete with in-house professional teeth whitening treatment that we use at Acacia Dental Group.
For that reason, you might find the results to be underwhelming and your time and money is wasted.
If you are mainly motivated by the convenience, and you want to find the best teeth whitening option, then consider the following questions:
What’s the duration of the teeth whitening treatment?
We recommend that you read the small print. The safety, quality, and effectiveness of over-the-counter teeth whitening products can vary greatly, so try finding answers to questions such as;
- How much time do you really need to spend?
- Check how many times you need to use the product to get the desired results?
- Determine how long before you will see noticeable results?
- What is expected from you in order to make the method work?
All contribute to the overall time that’s needed to get you the desired results. So the question you need to be asking, is how convenient are these options really?
How much do they cost?
The old adage, “you get what you pay for” doesn’t apply to everything, but when it comes to teeth whitening products, cheap whitening kits and services simply aren’t as good as professional teeth whitening.
You can easily validate this for yourself by reading the product reviews.
Unfortunately, choosing a teeth whitening option based on “convenience” alone won’t give you the results that will satisfy you. Any appeal that these products have, will soon wear off when you feel dissatisfied with the outcome.
What is The Cost of The Best Teeth Whitening Treatments?
With so many teeth whitening options on the market, it’s no surprise that there’s such a wide range of prices for the treatments.
But understanding the true cost of any teeth whitening treatment is important when deciding which option to go with.
As was the case was with the ‘convenience’ factor above, here you should:
Estimate how many times you’ll need to repeat the treatment? And what is the cost of each subsequent treatment?
Sometimes treatments that appear lower priced on the front-end, can tally up over time. In fact, they can end up even more expensive than in-house professional teeth whitening treatments.
Especially once you have factored in the costs of consecutive courses of treatment.
It’s certainly worth including this in your consideration, just so you can accurately assess the true costs of completing the treatment.
How much maintenance is required, and how much will that cost?
Again, low priced teeth whitening solutions rely on people buying maintenance products. It’s not to say there are not some good over-the-counter teeth whitening products.
It’s just worth researching these products. That way, you know beforehand what’s involved to get the desired results. And of course, what you have to do to maintain your results.
The Safety Considerations With Teeth Whitening
The safety considerations aren’t always the first factor that springs to mind when people are looking for teeth whitening products.
However, adverse reactions can happen to people with sensitivity. Which is why many people feel more comfortable having professional teeth whitening services.
And while teeth whitening products do need to be approved in order to be sold in the Australian market. The over-the-counter products don’t have the same strength.
According to the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA), the regulatory standards for teeth whitening products must contain 6% or less hydrogen peroxide, and/or 18% or less carbamide peroxide.
Teeth whitening products that contain concentrations of hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide greater than this, can only be dispensed by a registered dental professional.
This regulation is in place for good reason, the substances within a teeth whitening kit can cause you harm. You should always seek a professional who is trained to administer the treatment without causing harm or injury.
In-Chair Professional Teeth Whitening
With so many over-the-counter and take-home whitening kits, the question often asked is do I need to have in-chair teeth whitening treatment?
The answer is simple, in-chair professional teeth whitening treatments are the best teeth whitening treatments, the safest, and produce results within the fastest possible time frame.
There’s no comparison to in-chair professional whitening treatment. So if a ‘high-quality’ result is what you want, then you really have no other option.
Prior to having your treatment, we recommend that you come in for a complimentary teeth whitening consultation.
Here we will evaluate your oral health, assess the degree of staining on your teeth, and show what you can expect after the treatment is completed.
The teeth whitening treatment itself can be completed roughly within 45 minutes. And results normally last for as long as three years. Which is standard for this type of treatment.
You can’t achieve the same result with any over-the-counter kit.
Normally, the results last just 1-2 weeks with whitening strips, to 3-9 months with the standard bleaching kits.
These kits still set you back hundreds of dollars, but you will get less than half the result that a professional whitening treatment is going to offer.
The Best Teeth Whitening Treatment
At Acacia Dental Group, we use the market-leading, best teeth whitening technology. The Philips Zoom Whitespeed In-chair whitening treatment is the quickest, easiest, most comfortable way to whiten your teeth.
Why is that?
The Philips Zoom Whitespeed is an advanced whitening system which uses a proprietary LED light to accelerate whitening for maximum results in minimal time.
The treatment uses a combination of gel and light to create an intense whitening effect. The gel does not corrode the tooth enamel like other whitening systems, and the light lamp doesn’t overheat the tooth pulp, which is why 95% of patients surveyed, experience little to no sensitivity with the advanced Philips Zoom Whitespeed treatment.
Unlike so many other whitening systems, when the dentist uses the Philip Zoom Whitespeed system, they control the intensity of the whitening treatment from start to finish.
This ensures the best teeth whitening results are achieved. Due to a unique intensity setting, it allows the dentist to customize the treatment based on your personal comfort threshold while also eliminating any sensitivity.
Why Choose Acacia Dental Group To Whiten Your Teeth?
We would love to see you for a complimentary teeth whitening consultation. The consult lasts about 15 minutes. One of our highly-trained dentists will assess your teeth, and show what you can expect.
When you book an in-house professional teeth whitening treatment, we’ll do everything we can make the treatment comfortable.
The treatment itself lasts for about 45 minutes. And at the end of it, you’ll also receive a complimentary Zoom take-home whitening kit (worth $250).
The take-home kit can be given to a friend or family member or used at a later date when you feel the need for another treatment.
Our Zoom take-home whitening kits are different from the many kits found in the local chemist.
This is because our whitening kit provides peroxide strength of up to 14%. Compared to a maximum 6% from a non-dentist provider.
