Everybody loves a bright white smile, and there is a variety of products and procedures available to help you improve the look of yours.

At Forum Dentistry, we resort to a safe, effective and the best teeth whitening technique we discovered over the years to help you gain the much-needed confidence!

About teeth whitening

Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from just brushing twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste, flossing once a day, and the regular cleanings at the dentist. If you decide you would like to go beyond this to make your smile look brighter, count on Forum Dentistry to provide effective options.

But you need to bear in mind that even the best teeth whitening treatments in Sydney may not correct all types of discolouration. For example, yellowish hued teeth will probably whiten nicely where brownish-coloured teeth may not whiten as well and greyish-hued teeth may not whiten at all. Likewise, whitening will not enhance your smile if you have had bonding or tooth-coloured fillings placed on your front teeth. The whitener will not affect the colour of these materials, and they will stand out next to your newly whitened smile. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, like porcelain veneers or bonding.

How we can help

Forum Dentistry is among the most reputable teeth whitening practitioners in Sydney. We offer in-practice whitening services and are also happy to advise you on how you can maintain the newly-brightened smile on your own.

Our dental practice is conveniently in St Leonards train station on the Lower North Shore of Sydney, offering easy accessibility to all parts of Sydney.

Professional Teeth Whitening

If whitening is suitable for your needs, we suggest a procedure that can be done in our practice. This is called chair-side whitening and may require more than one visit.

During chair-side whitening, we will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect the oral soft tissues. A bleaching agent is then applied to the teeth, and a special light may be used to enhance the action of the agent.

This is a simple, yet effective procedure. However, as the results can vary from one person to another, you will be advised of your colour change. We are praised for our honesty - we explain to our patients in advance what they can expect from the teeth whitening treatment and how big of a difference they are going to see.

At-home Teeth Whitening

It is also possible to use whitening treatments at home. Upon visiting us, we will take impressions of your teeth and custom make a tray for your whitening solution. Once this has been fitted, we will give you the whitening treatment to take home. You will be told how often to use the product and for how long to wear the trays as well as the results you can expect.

Some say that their teeth become sensitive after using the whitening solution. In many cases, this sensitivity is temporary and should lessen once the treatment is finished. Some also experience soft tissue irritation—either from a tray that doesn’t fit properly or from the solution that may have come in contact with the tissue. If you are concerned about such side effects, please turn to us to get answers to any questions you have.

Results may vary in individual cases. The photo(s) used are stock photos of people who are not patients of Forum Dentistry, employees or affiliates.
