Brighter Smiles, Brighter Futures: The Power of Professional Teeth Whitening

Ever looked in the mirror and thought your teeth could be a couple of shades whiter? Yellowing and staining occurs naturally over time and this usually isn’t due to poor oral hygiene. Tea and coffee, red wine, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce – these normal things that we consume regularly all have teeth-staining properties.

But that’s where professional teeth whitening can change that, so that you don’t have to feel guilty when you’re simply having a cup of coffee! Let’s take a look at professional teeth whitening services at Victorian Dental Group:

What is professional teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is conducted by a dental practitioner using professional-grade whitening materials which only they are licenced to use. The process involves applying a liquid dam to protect the gums and applying a high-strength hydrogen peroxide agent to the teeth. The whole session takes under two hours and afterwards your teeth are brighter!

Who else can perform teeth whitening?

In Australia, teeth whitening can be performed by beauty industry workers and salon owners. However, these services are not classified as professional teeth whitening, as they are not carried out by licenced, qualified dentists, and the products that are used are often not regulated, below safety standards, and can be damaging to your mouth.

Why avoid beauty salon teeth whitening?

We highly advise avoiding non-professional teeth whitening services. Here’s why:

  • Only registered dental practitioners can use professional whitening gels and products containing more than 6% hydrogen peroxide, which are most effective. Beauty salons, for example, are not licenced to use these, instead using less effective products.
  • Beauty industry workers are not qualified to assess whether bleaching is safe for your teeth, as whitening can cause further damage to cracked teeth.
