What Causes Discolourisation?

Teeth may become discoloured or stained due to a variety of reasons. Some of the causes of tooth discolouration include:

  • Consuming large quantities of coffee, tea, or red wine
  • Consuming blueberries or other foods with staining abilities
  • Smoking tobacco
  • Consuming a considerable amount of acidic foods/drinks
  • Ageing
  • Some medications including antibiotics
  • Some illnesses
  • Poor oral hygiene

In order to prevent further damage and discolouring it is advisable to remove or minimise these foods and drinks in your diet.

Pola Tooth Whitening

At Advanced Dental Care Clinic, we are excited to provide Pola Tooth Whitening, an Australian made product, to our patients. Did you know that pola Tooth Whitening is the official tooth whitening partners for Miss Universe Australia 2019?

Pola Tooth Whitening is an effective, whitening system that will lighten your teeth and recapture your gorgeous smile. The product was first available 10 years ago and has since become one of the leading teeth whitening treatments available. The treatment will be able to reverse the discolouring effects of all the causes listed above.

How Does It Work?

When Pola is applied to your teeth it will break down into water and oxygen ions. The oxygen ions will then be able to break down the stain molecules, turning them colourless. The colourless stain molecules will then be naturally removed from your teeth by your saliva. The treatment will reverse the effects of discolouration, returning your teeth to their original shade of white. When maintained, the results of the whitening treatment will last for several years.

The treatment is easy and minimally invasive. It is applied either in the chair during a visit to Advanced Dental Care Clinic or administered in the comfort of your own home. Dr Parrag and the team will talk you through the entire process whatever treatment option you decide on. This means even if you choose to whiten your teeth yourself at home you will have a thorough understanding of what to do.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to get your teeth professionally whitened?

Whitening your teeth is much more predictable when visiting the dentist and having them whitened professionally. Over-the-counter products are not regulated  and so the active ingredients are not as strong and therefore do not give the desired results in most cases. Depending on the method used for whitening the cost can be quite varied. Costs range from a few hundred to a couple thousand dollars. Consult your dentist to find out more.

Is it worth getting your teeth whitened at the dentist?

Professional whitening gives predictable results. Boosting your confidence with a bright smile is definitely worth it!  If for any reason you are not achieving any changes, then speak to your dentist and find out why. Natural teeth CAN and WILL whiten.

Is teeth whitening covered by health insurance?

Some health funds cover a portion of the dental whitening, however if you are in doubt, ask for an estimate and see if your health fund gives any rebates.

How do dentists whiten your teeth?

Most dentists will use any of the following methods: 1. Take home tray whitening, 2. In-office/in-chair whitening or 3. Laser whitening. Any of these methods will work. 

Most tooth whiteners use one of two chemical agents: carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide (the same stuff that will bleach your hair). When used in the mouth, carbamide peroxide breaks down into hydrogen peroxide and urea, with hydrogen peroxide being the active whitening ingredient.

In-chair whitening uses a much stronger formula of whitening agent and needs to be monitored closely so the gel doesn’t touch the gums.

Laser whitening uses a pigmented gel and then the laser activates the bleaching ingredient to penetrate further into the tooth. This is a time consuming and expensive method but much gentler on the teeth with less sensitivity postoperatively.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

Professional teeth whitening costs vary widely depending on the method used, the materials used and how stubborn the stains are.  They can cost between a few hundred to a couple thousand dollars. Be sure to consult your dentist to find out more information.

Is laser whitening bad for your teeth?

True laser whitening is more gentle on the teeth than any other method of whitening. Rather than relying on strong gels to whiten, the laser helps penetrate the gel into the tooth further and so resulting in less sensitivity than some other methods. 

Always follow the instructions given by your dental professional and if there are any side effects or concerns, be sure to ask!
