Who is teeth whitening ideally for?
Teeth whitening is ideal for patients with permanent teeth that are affected by stubborn extrinsic (surface) staining. One should have good oral health before the start of the whitening process. We help you through this process and achieve positive results in short time frames. Dr Kosalram can help whiten your teeth in several ways.
Professional chairside teeth whitening
Sometimes known as laser teeth bleaching, teeth whitening procedures are carried out at our dental practice in just one visit. Under the careful control of our Specialist Prosthodontist, patients experience quick and immediate results. The procedure is ideal for removing most external staining and is usually carried out after a clean to help achieve the best result.
After discussing the appropriate shade for your teeth, the whitening procedure is carried out. This takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. For best results, it is suggested that patients aim for a natural-looking colour that best complements their skin tone.
Home teeth whitening
Should you prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, we will provide custom whitening trays designed to fit your smile. Your trays are filled with whitening gel and worn directly over your teeth, either for a few hours during the day or overnight. The gel is formulated to deliver maximum results while minimising sensitivity and typically, patients see results in 2-4 weeks time.
Combination teeth whitening
Dr Kosalram can customise teeth whitening treatment allowing you to be in full control of the whitening process. We also offer an initial chairside teeth whitening treatment at our dental practice in Kew, followed by a lower strength take-home tooth whitening kit to increase the lightness of your smile in the comfort of your home.

How often should I have my teeth whitened?
It is important to know that the effects of teeth whitening are not everlasting. The longevity of this type of treatment will differ from one person to another. This usually depends upon how often your teeth are exposed to stain-inducing foods and beverages and upon lifestyle choices such as smoking, wine drinking etc. The more often teeth are exposed to coloured foods and beverages, the shorter the whiteness lasts.
Can my teeth be whitened if I have restorations?
Restorations such as crowns, veneers and bridges cannot be whitened. This might be something to consider if you have multiple restorations which are visible upon smiling. Dr Kosalram will be happy to discuss your best options during an initial consultation.
