How does in chair teeth whitening work?

Unlike home teeth whitening products in-chair whitening will generally give maximum results in less than 1 hour. In-Chair teeth whitening is the process of bleaching the stains on the surface of the teeth using whitening gel and light activated acceleration. Maximum results means the stains on the surface of the teeth are no longer visible and they have been returned to their original colour. 

The average person has around 5-14 shades of staining on the surface of their teeth due to diet and lifestyle.   Teeth whitening will not whiten enamel not even when done by a dentist.   Teeth whitening results will vary greatly as each person’s teeth are not the same colour to begin with. Everyone has a different diet, lifestyle and home treatment regime.

We have spent the last 5 years researching and developing our teeth whitening system, which has resulted in the gentlest, most effective teeth whitening system available in Australia.


Products Used

Our treatment gels are Australian Compliant, safe and highly effective, we use a 6% hydrogen peroxide gel which is gentle on teeth causing no pain. We use LED accelerator lamps which are controlled by your technician during the teeth whitening process. The lamp activates the gel on the teeth producing maximum results in less than 1 hour. Without the use of the whitening accelerator weeks of everyday treatment would be necessary. 

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure which will remove extrinsic stains from teeth and return them to the original colour from when they were first grown. Teeth whitening gel is topical and will not change the intrinsic colour of teeth thus making it a safe procedure. 

It is recommended professional in chair teeth whitening treatment sessions are not preformed any more often than every 3 months. Each treatment session may have up to three consecutive individual treatments which should produce maximum results. It is unlikely if the treatment was performed quarterly that more than one or two treatments per session would be required for maintenance.
