St Clair Dental recommends that you’re teeth are first healthy and have been professionally cleaned within last 6 months, before proceeding with any type of tooth whitening.
There are many products and methods available to solve the problem of unattractive or discoloured teeth. Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, dental treatment which changes the colour of the tooth’s natural enamel, and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Since teeth whitening is not a permanent remedy, a touch-up may be needed every year or so to keep your smile looking bright. St Clair Dental can whiten and brighten your teeth in the following ways:

  • In office teeth whitening:

First, the dentist applies gel on the gums to protect the soft tissue from irritation. Then, the whitening product is applied to the tooth. This product contains hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As this product is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel onto the teeth and the tooth colour is made lighter. During and after the procedure you may experience temporary tooth sensitivity to heat and cold, and gum irritation.
To reach the desired results you may require one or more visit’s, each visit ranges between 30 to 90 minutes. During this time, we have tv screens on the ceiling for your comfort, so you can be entertained by watching a movie, while you wait for your teeth to whiten.

  • Home teeth whitening systems:

A product in the form of gel is placed in a thin type of mouth guard that is created from a mould of your teeth. The thin mouth guard is worn for 1 hour at night for 1-2 weeks. This allows time for the gel to penetrate gently reducing the effects of sensitivity.

Side Effects

The side effects are mild and temporary. You may experience increased sensitivity to cold during treatment, which may last up to either 1 day or a maximum of 3 days following treatment. To reduce sensitivity, our caring dentist Dr Anisha Sanghavi, recommends that you purchase a GC Toothmouse cream to apply to your teeth for 1 week prior and 1 week after. GC Toothmouse will prepare your teeth for the whitening procedure and provide relief from temporary sensitivity.

Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers is a cosmetic dental procedure that is commonly used to reconstruct multiple teeth, next to each other all in a row. Veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are bonded to your enamel on the tooth’s surface. Porcelain veneers are ideal for severe discolouration, large cracks or chips, too-short teeth, gapped smiles, and misshapen teeth. Our stunning, custom veneers can change a tooth’s colour, shape and appearance. Our experienced dentist use only high-quality material to create veneers that are strong, durable and aesthetically pleasing to create an incredible smile for you.
