Cosmetic Dentistry

If you’re considering professional teeth whitening treatments in Armidale, NSW, it starts with an exam by Dr Joseph Nyepetsi if you haven’t been to the dental clinic recently

Teeth bleaching safety decisions may include dental health issues or whether you have restorations. However, a dental health issue or restorations do not necessarily rule out teeth whitening.

If your dentist decides that teeth whitening is a safe option for you, we offer both take-home teeth whitening kits and in-chair teeth whitening at Markham Street Dental or a combination of both.

How Does Teeth Whitening at Markham Street Dental Work?

For take-home teeth whitening, we take an impression of your smile and use this model to create a custom whitening tray that fits your mouth securely. You take this tray and our prescription whitening gel home, and you can bleach your teeth on your time.

While teeth bleaching is usually considered safe under a dentist’s discretion, we don’t recommend over-the-counter bleaching systems. The products can be harsh or abrasive—harming your enamel—and generally, don’t give you the dramatic results usually seen with prescription-strength products. Also, when trays are not custom-designed for your smile, the bleaching products can spill onto your gums and create tooth sensitivity.
