Teeth Whitening in Perth
Teeth whitening is a form of cosmetic dentistry which has become an increasingly popular request in Perth. Painless and safe, it is the ideal way to help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile, at an affordable price. There are many benefits behind undergoing teeth whitening, however the main benefit being that teeth whitening doesn’t require any removal of healthy tooth structure and is generally a very affordable way to help you achieve the smile you’re after. Most of our patients who choose to undergo cosmetic dentistry are wanting to achieve a brighter smile for their wedding day, a special occasion, or to help diminish tooth spots and stains. At Perth City Dental, we can help you achieve a bright, white smile for any occasion. Better yet, because of our CBD location, you can achieve fast results during your lunch break or conveniently before or after work.
Tooth Whitening can be done in a single appointment in our Perth CBD clinic where tooth whitening gel is safely placed on your teeth and a UV light is used to activate the gel which speeds the teeth whitening process up. Throughout this process, all soft tissues (including gums, lips, tongue, and cheeks) are protected from exposure of this light and gel. The effects of teeth whitening range from patient to patient, but results are immediate, and patients are happy with the degree of whitening experienced. Alternatively, we can provide you with a take home kit. This kit involves custom whitening trays, with a gel. This method of teeth whitening is also effective and gives you the option to apply until you love the results.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
