The creation of a beautiful smile is often easier than you think many patients achieve the teeth they have been dreaming of with our simple tooth bleaching procedure.
At Ballinrobe Dental we recommend a home Tooth Whitening Kit. It is safe, gentle on the teeth, quick and inexpensive. We use the world-leading tooth whitening product “Philips Zoom!”.
Custom bleach splints are constructed to precisely fit your teeth. A special bleaching agent is then applied which whitens your teeth without affecting tooth structure or existing dental restorations in any way. You need to use this kit for 2 hours per day for 4-5 days. Tooth Whitening can be used to correct tooth discolouration caused by staining, ageing or damage of teeth. The latest in bleaching technology is offered at Ballinrobe Dental. In case of severe tooth discolouration crowns or veneers, may be the only choice. Tooth Whitening is often the first port of call in the creation of a perfect smile. When the desired degree of “whiteness” is achieved the treatment is stopped. The treatment can be topped up every few months if required, if the teeth begin to stain again.
Whitening products found in the pharmacy and internet such as whitening strips, bleaching sets are much weaker products than those only available from a dentist. Only dentists are licenced to use high concentrations of dental whitening products. Tooth whitening toothpaste and mouthwash are helpful, however, these products only remove surface stains using abrasives. These products do not brighten the actual colour shade of the teeth.
