Welcome to High Dental
Are you looking to achieve a whiter and brighter smile? Tooth whitening is a very popular trend and that is because our smile is one of our greatest assets.
Why are my teeth discoloured?
There are many reasons for discoloured teeth:
- natural wear as we age,
- surface stains through the consumption of coloured foods/beverages (e.g. coffee),
- suboptimal oral hygiene,
- medications (e.g. tetracycline), and
How does tooth whitening work?
Whitening treatment is most effective on surface-level discolouration (i.e. extrinsic staining). At High Dental, we offer two types of whitening treatments:
- In-chair whitening
- At-home whitening
Both methods involve a bleaching gel, which is applied to the teeth. For in-chair whitening, a high-intensity light is also used to accelerate the whitening process. Typically, treatment takes up to 90 minutes and results are immediately noticeable. However, follow-up visits may be required to achieve a satisfactory result.
For at-home whitening, custom whitening trays that fit snugly with your teeth are made. A bleaching gel is evenly applied onto the trays and then worn for at least 30 minutes. If you are new to whitening, it is recommended that you wear the trays for 30 minutes to begin with and then gradually increase the duration to reduce sensitivity.
