CDIC Dental offers two types of teeth whitening treatments: “Natural+” – an in-house all natural solution for non sensitive teeth whitening – and a take home “Natural+” whitening kit that can be used at home.
Both methods are natural, safe, effective and painless. With “Natural+” tooth sensitivity is generally not a problem as with some other products where patients can be left with sensitive and painful teeth for days……. the results are usually better as well.
Prior to all teeth whitening procedures a thorough dental examination is required to assess the patient’s suitability. Sometimes it is necessary for a patient to have restorative work completed before whitening can take place or a dental prophylaxis (calculus / tartar removal & teeth polishing) to ensure an optimal result. If tooth cleaning is required, a 7 day wait is necessary before the whitening procedure can be performed.
“Natural+” In Chair Teeth Whitening
“Natural+” In chair whitening is performed at CDIC Dental by an oral health therapist and takes less than 60 minutes to complete. The whitening gel is applied to the teeth and then activated using the special “Natural+” head lamp, safely lightening the colour of the teeth. This method is fast, convenient and effective as has an immediate result. “Natural+” has a specific ‘take home’ component that can be used to ‘top up’ the whitening effect, but it is seldom necessary.
Take Home Whitening Kits
Home whitening consist of customised trays, professional “Natural+” whitening gel and instructions. Impressions of the teeth are taken and customised trays are made to gently and painlessly fit over your teeth.
In the comfort of your own home, the whitening gel is placed in the trays and worn for the specified length of time. For the duration of the treatment (usually around 10 -14 days) food and drink containing strong food colourings (coffee, tea, red wine, balsamic vinegar, etc.) should be avoided.
After the initial whitening treatment your colour can be easily maintained by repeating the process for a couple of days as required.
