If you have tooth staining or discolouration you'd like to improve, professional teeth whitening in Perth, WA, may be a solution for you. Dr Kinsella offers customised plastic teeth whitening trays that you can use in the comfort of your own home to whiten your teeth.

How Professional Teeth Whitening Works

Dr Kinsella takes impressions of your teeth that we use to create custom plastic whitening trays for your smile. He will give you a high-strength whitening gel and show you how to apply it safely to your teeth whitening trays. Now you're prepared to whiten your teeth at home whenever it's convenient for you.

Another benefit is that you'll have your whitening trays at home to brighten your smile whenever you like, so you're smile will be prepared for your next vacation or big event. Again, this will help you maintain a bright and camera-ready smile.

Preventing Tooth Staining and Discolouration

Besides bleaching your teeth, there are other steps you can take to keep your smile bright, such as avoiding tooth-staining foods and beverages like:

  • Dark berries
  • Coffee or black tea
  • Tomatoes or marinara sauce
  • Curries
  • Soy sauce
  • Red wine

Limiting your intake of tooth-staining foods and drinks can help keep your smile bright. You can also brush your teeth 30 to 40 minutes after consuming these foods to help minimise discolouration.

Regular visits to your West Perth dentist will also help to reduce tooth staining. During your clean, your hygienist removes plaque buildup and particles that cause tooth discolouration. Visiting your dentist every six months for teeth cleans and examinations will help keep your smile on track.

Committing to a consistent brushing and flossing routine at home also helps protect your brighter smile and your dental health. Brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss at least once to remove the food particles, plaque, and bacteria that can leave teeth looking dull or discoloured.
