Teeth Whitening Melbourne

Here at Optimal Dental, Melbourne, we aspire to create vibrant natural smiles. Through the innovative technique of ZOOM Teeth Whitening treatment, Dr Roman Lohyn can help you achieve a cleaner, brighter and healthier smile.

Am I a suitable candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening treatment at our Melbourne CBD practice is a simple and safe cosmetic procedure that provides instant results, leaving you with a brighter and revitalised smile. Teeth Whitening is suitable for anyone with natural and healthy teeth. As natural teeth colour varies between individuals, you can expect your teeth to be restored to their natural whiter colour.

What are the causes of teeth discolouration?

There are a number of causes and reasons as to how and why teeth may become discoloured over time. Certain lifestyle factors and dietary habits can significantly affect the colour of your teeth, including the following:

  • Tobacco
  • Foods and drinks – berries, beets, soy sauce, tomato sauce, pickles, coffee, tea, red wine, soft drinks, sports drinks and confectionery
  • Poor dental hygiene – insufficient flossing and/or brushing to remove plaque and stain-producing foods and/or drinks
  • Antibiotics
  • Genetics – sometimes people naturally have darker coloured teeth

What is the difference between at-home whitening kits and Phillips ZOOM Whitening?

Over-the-counter products and methods are cheaper alternatives with lower concentrations of whitening agent - they may not be able to help you achieve your desired results. As Dr Roman Lohyn will execute your consultation, treatment and follow up (if required), the procedure is tailored specifically to you and will provide a premium result in a faster period of time. Contact us to discuss both of the options for teeth whitening Melbourne CBD has to offer.

How does Phillips ZOOM Teeth Whitening work?

Phillips ZOOM Teeth Whitening is a revolutionary bleaching process specifically formulated to reverse the effects of tooth discolouration. You can expect your Phillips ZOOM Teeth Whitening experience to deliver you a whiter smile, often 6-10 shades lighter, completed on the day, in one simple and easy visit to Optimal Dental.

Zoom Whitening treatment is an in-chair solution, involving the use of a whitening gel applied to your teeth, with the whitening process activated by a high-intensity light. In order to reach areas darkened inside the tooth, the hydrogen peroxide in the gel works to release oxygen which will penetrate both the enamel and dentine beneath it.

As this is a professional treatment, your Melbourne dentist Dr Roman Lohyn will work to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the procedure, as well as designing a treatment to suit your lifestyle and personal requirements.

Prior to your treatment to ensure your suitability for Phillips ZOOM Teeth Whitening, Dr Roman Lohyn will conduct a thorough oral examination. In order to achieve the best results, it may also be recommended that you get a scale and clean beforehand. Dr Roman Lohyn will be able to give you a better idea of what to expect based on the current condition of your teeth.

As a follow up treatment, Dr Roman Lohyn will provide you with custom made whitening trays that can be worn over the following two weeks, or alternatively whenever you feel as though your teeth could use a little more whitening.

Are there any side effects to teeth whitening?

The most common side effect that occurs after having your teeth whitened is the temporary tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. Should you experience any symptoms that fall outside of your normal expectations, please ensure you contact your dentist.
