Teeth Whitening
in Kew

At Willsmere Dental, we offer a range of teeth whitening options, including in-chair whitening and take-home whitening.

In-chair Teeth Whitening With Philips Zoom

A bright, sparkling smile is one of the best confidence boosters available. When your teeth are white, you will likely smile more, which can help you professionally and personally. At Willsmere Dental, we offer Philips Zoom teeth whitening, which can turn tarnished teeth into bright ones. Teeth whitening can erase years of stain that can come from tobacco, red wine, coffee, tea and the ageing process.

Why Philips Zoom?

At our practice, we chose to feature Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed as it’s clinically proven to whiten teeth up to eight shades in just 90 minutes. This same-day in-chair whitening option is ideal if you’re short on time. Imagine being able to achieve a stunning white smile over your lunch break!

Here are some reasons why we prefer the Philips brand:

  • Advanced blue LED technology
    Philips blue LED technology accelerates the whitening process for instant results.
  • Everything you need in our kits
    You’ll get a syringe of Relief ACP to help manage any sensitivity (though 99% of individuals have little to no sensitivity with Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed). We also will provide you with Zoom take-home whitening maintenance, packaged in a stylish carrying case.

Teeth Whitening at Home

Would you like to brighten your smile from the comfort of home? If you’re looking for the best home teeth whitening, we offer Pola take-home whitening kits that also get great results.

The process includes just one in-person visit to take some moulds and create custom whitening trays. You can expect the moulds to last a while; you just need to buy take-home whitening kits as regularly as you’d like to whiten your smile.

To achieve your desired whitening results, you would typically wear the trays once a day for up to two weeks. At your initial appointment, you’ll be given up to two weeks’ application at a time (including the gel and instructions).

We also offer another take-home whitening solution called ivoclar vivadent. This method also gets excellent results. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to find out more.

FAQs

How do I know which whitening option is right for me?

If you’d like the convenience of whitening your teeth from home, then take-home is a great option. You also have a bit more control with take-home kits in relation to sensitivity.

On the other hand, if you’re not good at sticking to a daily regimen or aren’t confident in whitening your teeth yourself, then in-chair is best. We can guide you at your appointment whether in-chair or take-home would be better for you.

Do I need a clean before my whitening session?

It is helpful to remove plaque buildup if it’s been a while since you’ve seen us. This way, we can ensure that the entire tooth/teeth are whitened. Ideally, to maximise results, we would prefer to see a patient 2-3 weeks after a hygiene appointment for their whitening.

What does the whitening process involve?

When you visit us for your appointment, we’ll start by applying a safety seal of gel around your gum line to protect them during the session. Then, we’ll use the Zoom system to apply a whitening gel, which will be activated by blue light. You’ll relax comfortably for about 45 minutes as your teeth lighten.

Will I have increased sensitivity after the whitening?

It’s possible, but we don’t have many reports of sensitivity following a patient’s whitening session. Some patients notice some sensitivity for the following few hours after a visit. It’s nothing that over-the-counter pain medication shouldn’t take care of.

What are the aftercare recommendations?

After your visit, we recommend you don’t consume any foods or drinks dark in colour for the first few days, as the pores of your teeth remain open and susceptible to staining. You should continue to brush and floss your teeth as usual.

Who is an ideal candidate for teeth whitening?

People with yellow or brownish stained teeth often see incredible results from teeth whitening. If your teeth are gray or bluish, results may not be as noticeable. Teeth whitening will not lighten restorations, i.e. veneers, crowns or implants. As not everyone is a good candidate for teeth whitening, we will let you know at your next checkup appointment.
