  • Coffee
  • Wine
  • Citrus fruits
  • Soda
  • Tea
  • Tooth trauma
  • Too much fluoride
  • Smoking
  • Age
  • Dentinogenesis Imperfecta (a genetic disorder that causes discoloured and translucent teeth)

Teeth Whitening Options in Port Macquarie

We offer two approaches, Zoom and Home-Whitening systems.

Zoom Whitening Procedure

Zoom Whitening is a teeth whitening option which lightens the shade of the teeth up to eight times better than conventional treatments, in just an hour!

The treatment uses a Zoom advanced power chairside lamp to stimulate the bleaching process.

The bleaching gel used removes stains that can’t be removed by conventional teeth whitening. This procedure gives you a healthy and longer-lasting glow.

  • Usually requires just one visit that lasts from 1 to 2 hours.
  • Your lips and gums are protected, and only your teeth are exposed.
  • The Zoom whitening gel is applied
  • A special curing light is focused on teeth to break up stains or discolouration

Home Whitening System

Take-home whitening helps you enjoy the benefits of teeth whitening in the comforts of your home.

At your first visit before your treatment, your Port Macquarie dentist will discuss with you the possible results, and will take impressions of your teeth to make bleaching trays. Once the trays are constructed, we will give them to you with a bleaching kit.

You will also be provided with instructions on using the bleaching kit over the following two weeks.

It is one of the most popular and cost-effective methods of whitening teeth.

  • Your Port Macquarie dentist will take impressions of your teeth
  • The moulds will be used to make custom-fitted trays which will be used to hold the whitening gel in your mouth
  • Your dentist will provide verbal and written instructions on how to use the trays.

Is teeth whitening permanent?
Teeth whitening isn’t permanent. It can last from a couple of months up to 3 years – it varies from person to person.

The whitening effect won’t last as long if you smoke, or if you drink red wine, tea, or coffee, which can all stain your teeth.

Does teeth whitening work on restorations?
Teeth whitening doesn’t work on dentures, crowns, fillings, or veneers.

Not everyone’s teeth are suitable for whitening. We recommend having a check-up with your dentist to determine if you are an eligible candidate for teeth whitening.
