Would you go the Dentist to get your hair done?

NO! Then why would you go to a salon to whiten your teeth?

 

Still not convinced? Let us give you 7 reasons why:

1. Licenced to use higher concentrations of whitening gels.

Dentist: YES

Non-dentist: NO

Higher concentrations will achieve a greater whitening result. Dentists are able to purchase hydrogen peroxide gels of 6-35% (18-105% carbamide peroxide) whilst non-dentists can only purchase up to 6% hydrogen peroxide (18% carbamide peroxide) gels.

Don’t get confused by the higher concentrations of carbamide peroxide. 30% carbamide peroxide equates to only 10% hydrogen peroxide. This means that they will have the same whitening effect regardless of the difference in percentage displayed.

 

2. Qualified to provide advice on which tooth whitening procedure is best suited to you?

Dentist: YES

Non-dentist: NO

Depending on the cause of your tooth discolouration, tooth whitening may not be very effective. The underlying cause needs to be diagnosed prior to choosing the most suitable whitening option.

 

3. Ability to distinguish between crowns/veneers/fillings vs your natural tooth?

Dentist: YES

Non-dentist: NO

Despite what you may hear, whitening products will only whiten your natural teeth. It will not whiten porcelain or white fillings.

 

4. Ability to offer pre- and post- whitening treatments that may provide you with the best result?

Dentist: YES

Non-dentist: NO

Some people have differences in enamel quality which may result in an uneven whitening result. Dentists will be able to determine if there are adjunct methods to even out your enamel quality

 

5. Consistent use of protective barriers to reduce the likelihood of chemical burns of your lips and cheek.

Dentist: YES

Non-dentist: NO

Chemical burns can be severe if extra precautions are not taken. Severe chemical burns can lead to swelling, redness, peeling of skin/lips/gums/cheeks and pain.

 

6. Qualified to assess your teeth for dental decay or exposed root surfaces? 

Dentist: YES 

Non-dentist: NO

People with dental decay and exposed root surfaces will experience greater sensitivity to whitening and may lead to the nerve of the tooth dying off. When the nerve of a tooth dies, you will need either root canal treatment or extraction of those teeth.

7. Proper infection control?

Dentist: YES

Non-dentist: Varies

 

Would you risk all of the above for a difference in price?

We don’t think it’s worth the risk and that’s why we offer Professional Teeth Whitening by Dentists for only $280.08.

Not too pricey for qualified care and peace of mind, don’t you agree?
