We offer professional teeth whitening at your convenience in a safe, effective and customised way.
Like any biological process, slow change is more stable. Fast biological change shocks the body, causing stress and gives unstable results, for example a quick tan or a fast weight loss program. We advise that the teeth whitening process should be done slowly for long term colour stability.
At Dr Tran's Dental Surgery, a customised tray will be made for you to take home together with the Opalescence whitening gel to apply at your convenience. The Opalescence gel is best worn overnight. It contains Potassium nitrate and Fluoride which helps maintain the health of the enamel throughout the whitening process. It is also formulated to prevent dehydration and shade relapse.
Teeth whitening works from the inside out. The active ingredients in Opalescence gels penetrate your teeth to break down the discoloured molecules deep down in your teeth, removing stains and whitening your smile. Opalescence gels contain potassium nitrate and fluoride which have been shown to strengthen enamel, decrease sensitivity, and help prevent cavities
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. The two most common materials used in dental veneers are composite resin and porcelain. Both types of veneers can be fabricated by a dental technician in a laboratory and are bonded to the patient's teeth by Dr Tran. Dental veneers are bonded to the teeth with resin cement.
Dr Tran will remove a small amount of the tooth surface to permit placement of the veneer. An impression (mould) is taken of the tooth and sent to the dental laboratory where the dental veneer is made to fit the tooth. At the next appointment, the veneer is bonded to the tooth with resin cement.
Dr Tran will advise you on the best option for your specific needs. At your consultation appointment Dr Tran will discuss, in detail, the procedure and address any questions you may have.
A diastema is a gap between two of your teeth, and it can occur anywhere in the mouth. Generally, however, they are found between the two front teeth.
Tooth coloured (composite) filling material can be used to close gaps between the teeth and in some cases can be used to make the teeth appear more in line.
