Whiten Teeth at Home
Can you whiten teeth from home?
Everyone wants white teeth. Even those with white teeth want to keep their teeth staying white, so it comes as no surprise just how popular teeth whitening has become. At Bamboo Dental, we've heard every method under the sun for whitening teeth. Some are sensible and recommended, others not so much. So how can you whiten teeth at home in a safe way? After all, that is the main concern our dentists have at the practice. Whitening products are available in shops, on websites and from abroad, but how do you know that those whitening products are safe? Or more, how do you know you're dentally fit for whitening treatment? The chances are, that if you're looking for at home whitening, it's because you're avoiding a trip to the dentist. There are many reasons that people avoid the dentist.With teeth whitening treatments such as bleach, it's absolutely essential that you're dentally fit before starting the whitening process. Teeth can be damaged if using products while not dentally fit. We understand that "getting dentally fit" may be an additional cost to the prices of whitening, but it's an absolutely necessary cost. Whitening treatments shouldn't be used unless a dentist gives you the thumbs up to use them. By seeing a dentist beforehand, you know for sure that you're safe to use the treatment.

But surely I don't need to be dentally fit just to use whitening strips? If I buy whitening strips from the shop, do I really need a dental check up, you might ask? Whitening treatments vary. Some treatments use a higher concentration of bleach that can only be administered by a dentist. Other treatments such as whitening strips use bleach but a much smaller amount. As you can imagine, the results of such treatments are not as fast, and results are often not as effective. The higher the quantity of bleach in the product, the faster you are to see results to your smile. Anything over the counter must follow certain guidelines. That's why we recommend contacting your dentist when considering teeth whitening. Also marketing tricks can from products in store can mislead patients. With treatment at Bamboo Dental, by an actual dentist, you're guaranteed results by those who know how to achieve them. In contacting your dentist for advice, you're not signing up for in chair treatment, you're merely getting an expert opinion. Should your dentist agree you are dentally fit (no cavities), he or she will them recommend the best options for teeth whitening.

As previously stated, to see effective and fast results, we recommend using bleach for teeth whitening.Syringes of bleach can only be offered by a dentist. At Bamboo Dental we offer syringes of bleach, along with a personalised whitening tray.

When at home, you can wear these trays each night, or for a couple hours a day. A simple trip to the dentist allows you to then whiten teeth from the comfort of your home, knowing your treatment is safe. Results can usually be seen in only a few days. Should you wish to whiten teeth in chair, that option is also available. One of our hygienists can whiten teeth using the Philips Zoom method. This involves 3-4 15 minute sessions in the chair with the hygienist. This may be a better option for those who wants to put the treatment entirely in the hands of the practitioner.However, most of patients opt for the take home whitening trays as they are more affordable than in chair treatment. Both are as effective as each other however.
