What's the Best Teeth Whitening System?

It's a jungle out there.  A great smile is so important and if you search for Teeth Whitening in Auckland you will find a lot of different options.  There are dental practices, non-dentist tooth whitening clinics, in clinic power tooth whitening, "laser" tooth whitening, "non-peroxide" tooth whitening, at home tray tooth whitening for day or night time, as well as the myriad of over the counter products.

Dr Van Haywood and Dr Harald Heymann co-authoured the first article in the world on nightguard vital tooth bleaching in 1989.  This was based on use of a 10% carbamide peroxide gel in custom made trays while sleeping.  Dr Haywood is a Professor in the Department of Oral Rehabilitation, College of Dental Medicine at Georgia Regents University Augusta and is an internationally respected authority on tooth whitening having completed further research and over 140 publications in the field.  After all this time, use of a 10% carbamide peroxide gel in custom made trays used for 8-10 hours a day is still the safest, most cost-effective, best-researched tooth whitening treatment available.

At our practice we have used this method of tooth whitening since the 1990s with great success and many happy smiles.  At SmartSmile, our Dental Hygienists currently use Opalescence tooth whitening systems from the USA.  Opalescence is a professional teeth whitener that offers professional results, only available through your dental professional.  Safe and effective, Opalescence has been the leader in whitening for over 20 years!  As adjuncts to our recommended custom tray technique for tooth whitening, we also have available the in-office Opalescence Boost Power Bleach for those that are in a hurry or want to jump start the whitening process, as well as the more convenient ready to go Opalescence Go prefilled disposable trays.
