Teeth whitening treatments have seen some serious changes over the past few years, and with that in mind, here are your teeth whitening options, in no particular order.

- Laser Teeth Whitening – Very much the professional way to a brighter smile, laser treatment is very effective. The treatment involves covering the teeth with a special solution, then a laser beam is used to activate the solution, and the longer the activation, the whiter the outcome. Of course, teeth whitening must be carried out by an experienced orthodontist who specialises in this form of treatment, which will ensure that your teeth are not damaged by the process, and with fast and reliable results, this is the ideal treatment for a professional person who would like a healthier smile. If you happen to be looking for a dentist covering Noosa and Noosaville, you can easily find one by searching online.
- Take Home Teeth Whitening Kit – Yes, you can actually do the treatment at home, providing you have the kit, which is prepared by the orthodontist. You would first have a customised bleaching tray made to fit your teeth perfectly, and with the right solution and easy to follow instructions, you can carry out the treatment in the comfort of your own home. This is an ideal alternative for those who dislike dental surgeries, as it allows you, the patient, to administer the treatment in familiar surroundings.
- Hydrogen Peroxide Gel – This product gives good results and the specially formulated gel is completely safe. This product is used by an orthodontist in a number of teeth whitening treatments and the best thing to do is arrange an initial examination, then the orthodontist can recommend the best treatment. This procedure would be carried out safely by the orthodontist, who has a wealth of experience with teeth whitening treatments that use hydrogen peroxide gel.
- UV Teeth Whitening – In order to carry out this treatment, the dental expert must first examine your teeth and gums, then the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and a special mouth retractor will expose the teeth and ensure that the patient is comfortable. The expert will ask you to wear protective goggles while the treatment is in progress, to protect your eyes against the UV rays, and also will protect your gums. The next stage involves spreading a specially formulated gel onto the teeth, which will then be exposed to a special form of light. The light activates the gel solution and the process is repeated three times in total – which takes about 45 minutes.
If you would like to explore the possibility of whitening your teeth, make an introductory appointment, when your orthodontist will examine your teeth and gums and make a recommendation as to the best treatment.
