Is tooth whitening Safe?

The Townsville Dental Centre’s dentists in Townsville have undergone intensive training to ensure that under the correct supervision, ZOOM in chair and at home Tooth whitening is a perfectly safe procedure.

However this treatment isn’t suggested for youngsters below eighteen years or pregnant or lactating women.

Will it hurt and are there any side effects?

The only known major side effect of ZOOM or AT home tooth whitening in Townsville is a period of fleeting sensitivity that can last up to 3-7 days.

With some patients, sensitivity during the treatment may occur. Discomfort from the procedure is usually from the PHILIPS WHITE SPEED light which generates a small quantity of heat. Although it resolves within a few days, sometimes, immediately after the procedure a tingling sensation is felt in the teeth, and gums. To minimize discomfort during and after the procedure, we usually advise Panadol or Nurofen (as long as you have no allergy to them) to be taken one hour before your tooth whitening appointment in Townsville to be taken.


How does tooth whitening in Townsville work?

Tooth whitening gels for the ZOOM TOOTH WHITENING or THE HOME TOOTH WHITENING available with us contain SAFE concentrations of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide ( up to 18% for at home ) and these chemicals break down and the oxygen gets in to the outer surface (enamel) of your teeth, that whitens them.

Our At-home teeth whitening kits involve the sporting of custom fitted mouth trays

We take impressions of your teeth to construct a made-to-order ultra-thin mouth guard tray. This tray is used to carry the lightening gel over the teeth and worn for up to 2 of hours per day. Results are sometimes seen at intervals period of around two weeks.

In our In-chair lightening procedure, we, isolate your teeth, protect your gums with various gauzez, cotton and a special Liquid Dam and carefully place Zoom teeth whitening gel on your teeth. The actual whitening gets started by employing a clinically evidenced cool blue-ultraviolet light called the PHILIPS ZOOM LIGHT SPEED LIGHT. This method takes around one to 2 hours.
