Teeth Whitening Sydney
Teeth Whitening Sydney
Teeth whitening is a great way to quickly improve your smile and our professionals at Pitt Street Dental Centre in Sydney CBD can help.
Most of us aren’t born with bright, white teeth, and it is natural for teeth to become dull, stained and discoloured over time. Age, medicines, illness and even foods and beverages can contribute to dulling or discoloured teeth. But there is a solution.
Teeth whitening services are in high demand because they work. Our team at Pitt St. Dental Centre is proud of our Philips Zoom! Whitespeed services that will bring you the smile you desire in one comfortable treatment.
How Teeth Become Discoloured
Teeth can become dull and discoloured for a number of reasons. First, not all of us are born with teeth as white as we would like. Also, even with daily brushing, certain beverages like teas and coffees can stain, especially if you drink them every day. Some foods with spices like curry and turmeric are also known to yellow and stain teeth. The following is a quick list of food and drinks to pay attention to:
But there are other factors that can cause teeth to become dull or yellow, such as medications or illness. In any case, when you visit Pitt St. Dental Centre in Sydney for teeth whitening, we can identify the cause and use the appropriate whitening system.
Types of Teeth Staining
Intrinsic staining is when the inside of the tooth becomes discoloured. If the tooth looks grey, dark blue or even black, the cause may stem from an old amalgam filling. Certain medications like tetracycline or an overexposure to fluoride can cause intrinsic staining that may look grayish or brown. Dental trauma and illness can also cause intrinsic staining, and enamel thins as we age exposing the yellow dentin underneath. Our dentists can evaluate these situations on a case-by-case basis to determine the best solution for each patient.
Extrinsic staining is the most common type of staining and takes place when the outside of the tooth becomes dull or discoloured. Teeth contain pores that can hold stains, mainly from foods and beverages. But other factors that cause this type of staining include smoking and improper oral hygiene. This type of staining is best addressed with our in-office teeth whitening services.

Professional Teeth Whitening vs Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is superior to over-the-counter remedies that are commonly used today. Sadly, these solutions are often weak and do not do much to brighten or whiten teeth and are often used improperly, leading to gum and dental issues. There are no customised trays to secure the gel into place making the system less effective, and can lead to gum irritation.
On the other hand, professional whitening services are highly popular because they work. Professional whitening services save you both money and time and possibly spare you from future problems.
We will professionally clean your teeth before the service, to ensure there are no hidden dental issues and to help the whitening gel be even more effective. Our in-office treatment is professionally monitored, providing you with a safe and highly effective treatment.
We are proud of our whitening services as we oversee the treatment from beginning to end. When you come us here at Pitt St. Dental Centre, you can be sure that you are well cared for with results that you can enjoy.
