At East Bentleigh Dental Group we understand that many of our patients in Melbourne dream of achieving a bright white smile but are hesitant to try professional whitening solutions due to tooth sensitivity.

With this in mind we are proud to offer the Natural Plus teeth whitening solution, which is designed to beautifully whiten teeth without harsh chemicals – giving our patients the beautifully white smile they have always desired.

The secret to our Natural Plus Whitening treatment is the inclusion of the worlds only stabilized hydrogen peroxide, which minimises any side effects or sensitivity associated with traditional teeth whitening treatments.

The Natural Plus Whitening Difference

Traditional whitening systems use regular hydrogen peroxide, which is a highly volatile substance that quickly decomposes when exposed to temperature changes, impurities and stabilisers. This rapid decomposition is actually the cause of most tooth sensitivity associated with whitening treatments, and can prevent patients developing the beautiful white smiles they deserve.

In stark contrast our Natural Plus Whitening treatment uses stabilised hydrogen peroxide, which supports optimal whitening results whilst reducing the risk of tooth sensitivity. There are also many other ways the Natural Plus Whitening treatment works to reduce tooth sensitivity including:

1) Remove the nasties

Carbamide peroxide is another traditional method of whitening teeth, which quickly decomposes into ammonia, carbon dioxide and urea – not the sort of material you want in your mouth! The Natural Plus Whitening treatment has been developed without this substance, as it has been known to etch tooth enamel and cause tooth sensitivity.

2) Ditch the heavy metals

Heavy metals are present in many whitening systems as they are used to dehydrate teeth, which leads to a temporary white appearance for around 48 hours. These heavy metals are not included in the Natural Plus Whitening treatment as when the tooth eventually rehydrates it will darken to a shade worse than that before treatment.

3) Achieve balance

Another cause of tooth sensitivity during traditional teeth whitening treatments is an unbalanced pH level. Whilst many teeth whitening systems are highly acidic, the Natural Plus Whitening system offers a neutral pH, and includes calcium to prevent demineralization and buffer teeth against acidic attack.

Best of all our system actually works – with the results of our teeth whitening treatment enjoyed by our patients for up to two years!
