Teeth WhiteningAt the Century Dental Centre we offer the following whitening treatments:
Polar At Home Whitening KitThis is a two visit procedure. On the first visit we explain the procedure, pictures of the teeth are taken. A mould of the upper and lower teeth is made to be poured into stone models by the laboratory. Upper and lower trays are constructed. On the second visit the patient collects the trays plus a 2 week supply of the teeth whitening agent. The trays are worn at night for 14 days when the patient will return for a follow up visit. Pictures are taken and compared to the first visit. If the teeth still need to be whiter, the procedure is repeated.
Opalescene In-office WhiteningWe offer 2 different procedures
A single visit whitening treatment (1hr in office) This is our quickest and easiest treatment for an instant new smile. You simply need to call and schedule an appointment for 1 hour. You can sit in the dental chair and relax while we apply the bleach to your teeth. Your mouth will be kept open with the help of two dental blocks so your jaw can rest. After your session your teeth will be a brighter white.
A dual+ visit whitening treatment (30min in office) For those patients with sensitive teeth who still want a brighter white smile we have just the treatment for you. Your first visit will include “BEFORE” photographs and moulds of your teeth which we will send to the lab. Your next visit will involve a medium strength whitening agent application to your teeth for30min. You will then wear the CLEAR trays to protect the whitening agent for an additional 4 hours. You may repeat this treatment for up to three times to achieve your desired result.
Dental VeneersThe most conservative way to a radiant new smile, Porcelain Veneers are a quick and easy procedure and can even be used to cover spacing between the front teeth making your smile natural and white. Veneers are best matched with a teeth whitening procedure to make all your teeth look bright white! We also offer a Direct Composite Veneer procedure where you can have your bright you smile on the same day! This procedure is second to the porcelain treatment and is excellent for patients on a budget or those who want their smile urgently.
Dental CrownsAt the Century Dental Centre we use crowns for two main reasons. Firstly, to restore heavily broken down teeth to their former health as well as to improve on the aesthetics of the teeth and create beautiful smiles! The crown is a “cap” that fits over the tooth and can be created in any shape and colour to either camouflage itself or improve on the smile.
