Kathy Jacobs Hair & Beauty now has a Teeth Whitening service.
A brighter smile can boost your self-esteem and help offset the effect food and aging have on the appearance of your teeth. We offer the latest whitening gel approved for use in Australia. In conjunction with the gel, we use the latest in blue light LED technology to remove stains and give you a whiter smile. Using blue light LED, is an excellent activation agent for hydrogen peroxide, the cleaning agent in tooth whitening systems, giving your teeth a deeper clean in less time.
We have a hygienic non-touch procedure at NO time will a technician touch you or your mouth. Our gel is gentle and safe, problems are extremely rare. Teeth Whitening is safe for crowns and veneers although these will not lighten as much as natural teeth.
We get fantastic results from our products with results of 5 to 14 shades whiter able to be achieved on untreated teeth. Results will be reduced if the client uses any home whitening products or has had an in-chair treatment in the past 2 years. Teeth whitening will remove stains from the surface of the teeth and return them to the colour they were originally grown.
Teeth whitening results are subjective as each individual is different and teeth will only whiten to the degree which they are stained. This means teeth whitening will only whiten teeth to the colour they were originally grown. Therefore, the more stained a person’s teeth the greater the result will be. Teeth with very little staining due to good diet or the use of home whitening treatments may not show as much of a result. The whiter the persons teeth were originally the whiter the result that can be achieved.
The teeth whitening process will take around about 1 hour to achieve maximum results. Within your 1 hour appointment you may require up to three treatments to get the best result. Contact Kathy Jacobs Hair & Beauty today.
Q: How long does a treatment take?
A: Less than one hour is all that is needed to achieve maximum results.
Q: What results can be expected?
A: This depends on each individual and the extent of discoloration,
generally from 5-14 shades lighter can be achieved. The more stained
your teeth the more dramatic the result will be. Teeth whitening whether
done by a dentist or another technician will not whiten your tooth enamel
the process will bleach the stains on the surface of your teeth. The results
are also relevant to how regularly you have a teeth whitening procedure
or use home whitening treatments. Where whitening is done every 6-12
months it is considered a maintenance procedure and results will be less
Q. Should teeth whitening be done by a Dentist?
A. Getting whiter teeth is purely cosmetic and non dental. The products we
use are gentler than and just as effective as those used by the dentist.
All our products are Australian compliant and produced to the highest
standards. Teeth whitening, no matter who does it bleaches stains from
the surface of the teeth it does not whiten enamel.
Q: Is teeth whitening safe?
A: We offer the latest whitening gel approved for use in Australia. We
have a hygienic non-touch procedure at NO time will a technician touch
you or your mouth. Our gel is gentle and safe, problems are extremely
rare. Teeth Whitening is safe for crowns and veneers although these will
not lighten as much as natural teeth.
Q: Is teeth whitening suitable for everyone?
A: Teeth whitening is a treatment most people want and can have,
however, it is not recommended for children under 16 years of age or for
women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not have a teeth whitening
treatment if you have gum disease or are requiring dental work.
Q: How long will a teeth whitening treatment last?
A: Teeth will maintain their fresh new appearance for around one year.
Re-staining depends largely on diet and lifestyle. Smoking, coffee, tea,
fruit juice, sodas all staining foods and beverages will eventually re-stain
the surface of your teeth.
