No matter how well you take care of your teeth, they can still become dark and discoloured. Common culprits that cause staining are age, diet, and whether or not you smoke. Foods like berries, coffee, and tea also show on your teeth eventually, no matter how well you brush. The good news is that this is an easy problem to solve, and the professional teeth whitening process is faster and more affordable than ever.
The short answer to this question is: anyone who is in good general health, and who wants to improve their appearance, whether the reasons are personal or professional. A healthier, more youthful appearance could give you the edge in your professional life, whether you're a house agent marketing homes or an actor on the audition trail. Here are a few possible use cases;
Going for a new job, perhaps with Horner on Queen Street or Robert Half in Inner City Melbourne. In today's competitive job market, every little thing counts and your bright smile could be the difference between getting that dream job and "just missing out" for the 10th time.
Improving your personal appearance, perhaps to increase your chances of success at one of Melbourne's top talent agencies such as BMG, to improve your changes in the dating game or just to feel better about yourself.
There are quite a few different approaches to take with teeth whitening. Each has advantages and disadvantages, and which you choose depends on factors like:
- how fast you want results
- how much money you have budgeted for personal improvement
- whether you have the time and patience to do it yourself
- whether you're able to take time off work or your personal commitments to make the required dental appointments
There are four basic teeth whitening methods;
1. Trays and strips. These are available off-the-shelf, at dental practices and for convenience purchase from our online store and delivered to your door. This is by far the most cost effective and convenient treatment but might not be as effective for the more severe discolouration.
2. Laser whitening. This option is only provided in-office by a professional practitioner. Depending on how bad your discolouration is, laser can involve multiple sessions, and the cost ranges from $500 - $2,500.
3. Zoom whitening. Zoom is a higher tech, slightly costlier method of tooth bleaching using a gel and coloured lights that 'zoom' in on the area to be treated. Newer methods of Zoom cause less damage to the surface enamel and protect the dentin, or soft tissue, inside the teeth.
4. Porcelain veneers. This is the costliest, and it's a relatively permanent solution. The cost is up to $2,000 per tooth, including x-rays and preparation.
