Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular treatment nowadays, but we highly recommend getting it done at a professional dentist. 

The trays sold over the counter invariably won’t fit well and therefore allow the bleaching gel to wash away from your teeth. At our clinic, you’ll receive a bleaching guard that fits snugly to your teeth, ensuring the results are as even as possible.

At our clinic, we do in-chair teeth whitening using an SDI RADII PLUS Bleaching Light that gives an instant result. The in-chair treatment is done using a stronger bleach and a bleaching light, but it must be followed up with some tray bleaching. The procedure is more expensive than tray bleaching alone and can lead to more sensitivity.

Our Teeth Whitening Process

1.Dental Check-Up

We always kick off tooth whitening treatment with a thorough dental check-up. This is to ensure your teeth are suitable for tooth whitening – there are some conditions where the treatment is not appropriate.

2. Taking Teeth Impressions

We always kick off tooth whitening treatment with a thorough dental check-up. This is to ensure your teeth are suitable for tooth whitening – there are some conditions where the treatment is not appropriate.

3. In-Chair Treatment

The initial in-chair treatment is done with a stronger bleach and our SDI RADII PLUS Bleaching Light. Some patients may skip the in-chair treatment and move right onto at-home treatment.

4. At-Home Bleaching Tray

To follow up the in-chair treatment or instead of it, we’ll send you home with your individually fitted tray and tooth whitening treatment. A typical routine is to wear the bleaching trays for an hour a day for a few weeks, but your dentist will give you individualised instructions. It’s important you follow the instructions given to you by the dentist and don’t wear the bleaching guards too much as this may cause damage to your teeth.

What to expect on your visit

If you suspect you might need to visit the dentist, whether for a regular check-up or a specific problem, the first step is to give us a call. Our friendly dental assistants can help you with most inquiries, booking you in for a further consultation or treatment.

When you come in, your dentist will have a discussion with you about your needs and propose treatment. At Camira Dental, we take pride in telling the truth about patient needs, never engaging in up-selling.

You’ll get an upfront quote on the full cost of treatment before starting. If needed, it’s possible to prioritise treatment to spread out the cost. We won’t start any treatment without your verbal consent to proceed with the plan.

We use innovative pain-free techniques, providing gentle care. If you have sensitive teeth or a fear of the dentist, don’t hesitate to let our team know. We’ll do our best to make you feel comfortable during your visit.
