There are multiple teeth whitening kits available over the counter but are they safe to use?
At Advanced Dental Care Clinic on the Gold Coast, we use only teeth-friendly whitening products to ensure your teeth are whitened safely. While some over the counter teeth whitening products may work, they may not be safe for our teeth, which is why it’s best to see a dentist when considering lightening your smile.
You might not know what you’re purchasing over the counter…
Often teeth whitening kits sold over the counter are not ACCC (Australian Consumer and Consummation Commission) approved and can put your teeth at risk. Remember you are essentially bleaching your teeth this is why it’s best to leave it to a dentist who can guarantee safe products. Often tooth sensitivity and inflamed gums can result from these products and can lead to further dental health problems. At Advanced Dental Care Clinic we only use products that are safe and gentle on your enamel.
At Advanced Dental Care Clinic we offer two teeth whitening treatments…
We understand that sometimes you don’t have the time to come in for an in-chair teeth whitening treatment which is why we also offer to take-home tooth whitening. Both of our treatments have proven to be successful in lightening most patients’ teeth by three or more shades.
Our do it yourself take-home tooth whitening treatment…
Our Australian owned and produced Pola teeth whitening products give you the flexibility and convenience of whitening your teeth at home. This product is designed to combat your stained and discoloured teeth, the range of Pola tooth whitening products vary in strength. After a full mouth assessment we can determine the shade of your teeth and the shade we would like to work towards, after this consultation you will be prescribed the appropriate product depending on what you need to effectively whiten your teeth.
How does it work? Our take-home tooth whitening treatment involves a custom made tray similar to a mouthguard along with a gel that can be used day or night. To give you more flexibility and convenience while giving you the ability to control your treatment at your own pace, our take-home kit may be the treatment best suited for you.
