Teeth Whitening in Rouse Hill

Along with our restorative and general dentistry services, we also offer cosmetic services such as teeth whitening for our patients.

If you’ve got a special event coming up (such as a wedding or corporate function), or simply wish to have a nice smile, then Rouse Hill Smiles has a solution for you.

In-chair Whitening

Before embarking on your teeth whitening journey, our dentist will perform a full oral examination to ensure your teeth are able to receive whitening treatment.

We utilise safe and trusted whitening brands such as Opalescence and Zoom, both of which are used for in-chair treatments to achieve a good smile. Over 4 – 5 sessions, the whitening solution is painted on the patient’s teeth to gradually build up to a natural-looking smile. our dentist also provides patients with a soothing gel to counteract any post-treatment sensitivity.

Take-home Whitening Kits

We understand some patients may prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, so we also provide take-home teeth whitening kits to help them achieve results which are just as long-lasting and effective.

These kits involve using a fitted custom tray, which is then filled with whitening gel and worn regularly over a period of around two weeks.

5 Frequently Asked Questions for Teeth Whitening

One must understand that the result of the teeth whitening process varies from one person to another and the type of stains on their teeth. When it comes to safety, whitening solutions are used, and techniques are employed that are extensively tested at Rouse Hill Smiles Dental Care. While whitening solutions such as Carbamide Peroxide and Hydrogen Peroxide, among other types, are safe for the teeth whitening process, it is highly recommended to be applied under the supervision of an accredited and trained dental professional.

While a good oral hygiene routine should be followed a few weeks prior to your teeth whitening appointment, it is also recommended by experts to eat shortly before your appointment and ensure proper brushing and flossing before the visitation at the dentist’s clinic.

Post the teeth whitening process; you might experience sensitivity to your teeth during the first day. However, it is quite normal to feel mild sensitivity. Gum irritation is yet another side effect of teeth whitening that may cause a burning sensation during the procedure but gradually subsides post-treatment.

A treatment that involves working with your teeth also includes the risks of nerve damage. In the case of a broken or cracked tooth, the teeth whitening treatment may incur some nerve pain. Therefore, it is essential to consult a professional dentist prior to your whitening treatment so that any concerns related to your oral health can be discussed beforehand.

While teeth whitening is a safe process, it is recommended to be done under a professional dentist’s supervision for a reason. The solution used for the whitening treatment might carry risks of damaging the teeth’s enamel, which is why dental professional consultation and care are vital to significantly reduce the risk of any tooth enamel damage or damage to gums, among others.

Depending on the type of teeth whitening treatment you choose, whether it is in-chair whitening or take-home whitening kits, it typically takes three to five weeks for your teeth to gradually build up to a natural-looking smile.  

In general, you can expect your teeth to remain whiter for 12 to 24 months on average. However, the longevity of your whiter teeth majorly depends on your routine dental hygiene along with the diet you take. While a healthy diet, utilising a straw whenever possible, and timely dental cleaning and exam are necessary for lasting the results, smoking and staining foods and drinks should be avoided to prevent discolouration of your teeth.
