Are your teeth stained or starting to yellow?

Teeth may gradually yellow and look unattractive over time due to a number of reasons. Aging, hereditary factors, excessive smoking, and poor dental hygiene can all cause the enamel on your teeth to break down and reveal the yellow dentin underneath. Other factors can also lead to teeth discoloration, so the end result is a smile that is not as bright as you would want.

The good news is you no longer have to hide your smile anymore.

Illawarra Dental Centre offers take-home kits that can dramatically improve the colour of your teeth. Teeth whitening is a simple and effective way to brighten your smile. Results will vary for each individual so we recommend scheduling an appointment. This allows us to assess your teeth and provide the best treatment option for you.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Take-home kits offer a convenient solution to whiten your teeth.

Whitening involves a topical application of dental bleach (hydrogen peroxide) to your teeth to lighten their colour by several shades or more. Particles on the tooth enamel are largely responsible for giving teeth a stained appearance. Once the kit is properly applied, the bleach begins working right away on these particles until they are rendered colourless.

Solutions are typically left on for 30 minutes to one hour. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results but you will notice an immediate improvement. Bleaching works well on yellowish and even some brown stains. Whitening kits are also completely safe with long-lasting results.
