The cosmetic dental industry has experienced a boom in recent years and teeth whitening has emerged as one of the most popular treatments. To help patients effectively eliminate stains and discoloration from their teeth, Dr. Dave Richards has expanded the teeth brightening services available at his Auckland practice – Natural Smile Dental St Heliers.

Studies suggest that around 50 percent of individuals have some level of tooth discoloration, with 6 percent of them describing their dental stains as ‘severe’. Teeth stains can have a knock-on effect on self-esteem and many individuals find that at-home treatments are not effective. The newly available treatments at Natural Smile Dental St Heliers provide more noticeable and longer-lasting results.
One of the recommended smile enhancement treatments available at the practice is Zoom! WhiteSpeed. Using hydrogen gel and an LED blue light, the technology gently removes heavy stains and discoloration from the enamel of the tooth. The treatment is relatively pain-free, but as is common with teeth whitening procedures, patients may experience a little sensitivity post-treatment.
Patients can expect their teeth to be up to 8 shades lighter after one appointment. Each session lasts 45 minutes and, with proper aftercare, patients can have a naturally whiter smile for between 12 and 24 months.
To maintain results, the team offers patients an at-home kit that includes a professional whitening agent and a custom-fitted tray. More details can be found by visiting https://www.drdaverichards.nz/teeth-whitening
Dr. Richards has received many five-star reviews, with one recent patient saying, “Dave is a great dentist who is thorough, gentle, and reassuring. I needed extensive work after a long time avoiding dentists due to anxiety, and every visit was stress and pain-free. The whole team is warm and welcoming and I couldn’t be happier with my brighter smile. If you’ve found at-home bleaching kits ineffective, I would highly recommend paying this clinic a visit.”
