Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most established and affodable ways to brighten your smile as well as boost your self-esteem and confidence.

Food, coffee, tea, red wine, cola soft drinks and cigarettes etc. can make your teeth look darker and stained. Using our latest teeth whitening procedures, we can remove these stains and bring your brighter smile back to you.

We, at Freemans Bay Dental, offer both 'in-office' and 'take home' teeth whitening procedures. You can either choose to take a professional teeth whitening kit which you use at home for 2 weeks or take a 1 hour laser teeth whitening session in the clinic with us.

Laser teeth whitening is done in-chair in 1 hour session using Beyond Polus Whitening accelerator (also called as Laser) that filters out harmful UV and IR light, making it the safest and the most advanced form of in-office whitening treatment currently in market. The procedure is very simple, safe and effective and will make your teeth dramatically whiter in just 1 hour.

Take home kits work well and lift the colouration of your teeth but they take little longer to achive noticeable colour difference.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening generally occurs when Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is exposed to the dentine of a tooth (found directly under the enamel). When Hydrogen Peroxide penetrates through the enamel, pigmentation found in the dentine tube oxidizes, rendering a white finish which is reflected through the translucent enamel.

BEYOND™ Polus™ Whitening Accelerator

The new BEYOND™ Polus™ Whitening Accelerator is the most advanced professional power whitening accelerator lamp designed to date. This unique technology carries and delivers the powerful halogen light from the 150 watt source in the rear of the light head, adds wave-length specific high-intensity LED light at the face of the head, and purifies and cools the light through more than 150,000 optical microfibers and filtering lenses. LightBridge™ technology brings the most uniform light output possible with zero UV exposure and no harmful heat. The end result is a combination of two powerful light sources with wavelengths that span the entire blue light whitening spectrum, providing clients with the very brightest, glossiest whitening results possible.

The new BEYOND™ Polus™ Whitening Accelerator has received a maximum note of 5+ from Dental Advisor.

Comparison with traditional teeth whitening systems

Traditional teeth whitening systems like LED Matrix Lights and other technologies like Zoom incorporate the use of a heat lamp to accelerate the oxidization process. The heat lamps do not filter out harmful UV light. Therefore the downside of this treatment method is that the use of heat as an accelerant causes a host of adverse symptoms, including; itching and skin irritation, gum irritation, mild to severe burning, sunburn and exposure to harmful UV radiation.

The Beyond laser teeth whitening system overcomes these harmful effects by using a beam of high intensity blue light, which is filtered through over 12,000 optical fibres. The light is finally filtered through two optical lenses, which have over 30 layers of coated optical glass. The cold, blue light, illuminates teeth at a wavelength of 480 -520 nanometers, which is proven to be the optimal range for teeth whitening.

Harmful Ultra-Violet (UV) light is completely removed from the filtering system, leaving only a focused beam of cold light in the blue-cyan spectrum. This penetrates deep into the teeth, enabling oxidization to occur without any of the harmful side-effects.

Beyond Polus laser whitening system is therefore far more comfortable and effective for patients as compared to other traditional methods.
