Teeth Whitening Toowoomba

A beautiful smile projects the image of health, confidence, and beauty. Few of us are blessed with a perfect smile, and some of us even avoid smiling because of some noticeable flaws. At L&R Dental, we combine the art and science of dentistry to help patients achieve the best-looking smile possible. 

A Youthful Smile At Any Age

A broken-down smile may not reflect who you are on the inside. Replacing missing teeth and improving the appearance of the ones you have can help you maintain a youthful and healthy appearance that makes a great impression socially and professionally. Restorations like ceramic crowns and veneers can erase years of damage or neglect – all with natural-looking results.woman's mouth with very white teeth having dental treatment

Your smile is the most important accessory you will ever have because you wear it every day.

 

How does professional teeth whitening work?

Compared to over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions, teeth whitening treatment performed by a professionally trained dentist has a number of advantages. Professional teeth whitening has been proven to be more effective, with longer-lasting results compared to at-home teeth whitening kits. These include a more long-lasting and uniform improvement in the colour of your teeth. 

Whether you have staining from coffee or nicotine or want to achieve a cleaner, brighter smile, teeth whitening is an excellent option for many Australians. While at-home kits can achieve mixed success, getting your teeth whitened with a professionally trained dentist can offer long-lasting, gleaming white results.

Firstly, Toowoomba dentists Dr. Welsh, Dr. Milford, and associates have access to a professional whitening gel, which comes in stronger concentrations and gentle formulas for people with sensitive teeth. Before you can be provided with any system, an initial consultation is needed to check the health of your teeth and your suitability for certain treatments. For example, if you have sensitive gums and teeth, certain whitening options may not work for you.

 

Secondly, we customise your whitening system.

Custom whitening trays keep the gel on teeth and prevent leaking onto delicate gum tissue.

Many patients opt to jumpstart their whitening program with our Zoom! in-chair whitening system. We apply a highly concentrated whitening gel to teeth and activate it with light to help it penetrate the tooth enamel. We repeat the process two more times, providing patients with an improvement of several shades in about an hour. 

 

Our take-home whitening system allows you to continue the process at home to achieve your whitest smile.

After your initial exam and hygiene appointment, an appointment is made for whitening, and professional teeth whitening product is applied in the chair and you will see your teeth become several shades lighter. You will be able to take home a whitening system to use yourself in the future whenever your teeth develop stains or discolouration. This way, your smile can stay white for a lifetime. You can keep your custom trays for maintenance when teeth develop stains again. You can have a white smile for a lifetime and avoid the disappointments of commercially available whiteners.

Tooth-Coloured Dentistry

Replacing dentistry that contains metal components can brighten your smile. Ceramic crowns, bonded fillings, and ceramic veneers restore both the function and appearance of natural teeth, while dental implants solve the problem of missing teeth with the most lifelike and reliable results. Our Toowomba dentists are great listeners and truly interested in helping you achieve your ideal smile. We invite you to get in touch and tell us what you love about your smile and what you would prefer to change. 

A New Smile with Ceramic Veneers

composite dental veneerCeramic veneers are thin, translucent restorations that fit over the front of natural teeth to improve shape, length and discoloration.

Veneers also eliminate gaps between teeth and give the appearance of improved alignment without the need for orthodontics. Typically, ceramic veneers are placed on multiple teeth to create a perfect-looking smile.

We also offer composite bonded veneers for repairing a single tooth or covering deep stains. We can discuss which option will give you optimum results.

We begin by discussing your ideal smile and taking moulds of your teeth. This will help us design the proper shape and length of your veneers. Determining the shade and the final look of veneers is exciting. We even offer a ‘try-in’ with temporaries so that you can see a preview of your brand new look.

Full Smile Makeovers

Neglect, teeth grinding and accidents cause damage to the smile. We offer complete smile makeovers to restore both function and aesthetics of teeth. By using a combination of treatments, you can enjoy comfortable chewing and a smile suited for the silver screen.

FAQs

If you've got questions about our teeth whitening services, check out our most frequently asked questions below. If your question doesn't appear here, just call us at L&R Dental today and our professional advisors will be happy to answer any questions you have about our teeth whitening service in Toowoomba.

How do I ask my dentist for tooth whitening?

If you like the idea of a whiter smile, speaking to your dentist is the first step. Our friendly dentists will be able to talk you through whitening options and let you know which choices would best suit you. Choosing a dental clinic with expertise in tooth whitening is the best way to ensure success.

How do I know if I’m eligible for teeth whitening?

Your dentist will provide a full consultation at the start of your whitening journey, and their expert advice will let you know if whitening would work for your teeth specifically. It’s always a good idea to seek professional advice, especially when it comes to your dental care.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes, our teeth whitening gel is completely safe. Formulated to protect the teeth enamel while still providing effective whitening, all professional-grade teeth whitening gels are heavily regulated by the Dental Board of Australia to ensure safe concentrations of bleaching agents are used.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

Teeth whitening isn't usually painful, though it can make your teeth feel a little more sensitive than usual for a short time after the procedure. If your teeth usually feel sensitive, it may hurt a little when teeth whitening gel is applied, but sensitive formulations can be used to reduce this feeling upon application.

Are the effects of teeth whitening permanent?

While the effects of any single teeth whitening treatment are not permanent, at L&R Dental, we will send you home with at-home kits that can be used whenever your teeth need a top-up treatment. In this way, the effects of your professional teeth whitening can be incredibly long-lasting.
