Dr Alistair Graham is one of the few dentists who can fix most of your dental problems, since he’s qualified to provide both surgical and restorative treatments.He completed his Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (Oral Implants) at Sydney University. He also studied in the UK, Australia and Switzerland to delve further into this field.
Dr Graham is widely recognised for his extensive experience in all stages of dental implant treatments (planning, surgical and restorative).As a result, we can give you clarity about the entire treatment plan, putting you in control of the outcome. This gives you peace of mind that your treatment is being completed in one place, with someone who understands the big picture.
As the name suggests, teeth whitening is a proven and safe way of giving you that glowing smile. A procedure that lightens your teeth by removing unwanted stains and discolouration.
At Mona Vale Dental we use Philips Zoom Whitening which is a non-invasive dental procedure which uses light-activated technology to whiten and brighten your teeth, leaving a fresh youthful appearance.
For some, years of smoking or coffee drinking may have left you with teeth that are missing that pearly white glow. There may also be discolouration due to nerve damage or an accident. Keeping teeth healthy is important to us too, the teeth whitening service we offer does not compromise on this value.
There’s far less risk of painful sensitivity after the treatment when you choose Mona Vale Dental. The whitening formula we use includes a desensitising ingredient, meaning that our teeth whitening service is even suitable for those with sensitive teeth. There is no danger of enamel being softened or rubbed away, and whilst there may be some temporary increased sensitivity, this will go away a few days after the treatment. Fillings and crowns are also safe with our Philips Zoom treatment, as the specialised gel is designed to ensure it does not affect tooth restorations.
All of our dentists are trained and accredited ready to use the Philips Zoom whitening tool in our surgery. This is a teeth whitening LED light that’s used in professional dental surgeries all over the world, and when combined with the unique hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, creates truly stunning results. We put safety first, however, and ensure that gums are fully protected to avoid any adverse reactions.
Alternatively, we offer an at-home whitening service that can provide excellent results, but results do not compare to the expertise of a professional. Mona Vale Dental provides custom-made trays tailored to you and your teeth, and the overall whitening course will take 10-15 days overall (rather than just one hour in the chair).
Costs can vary according to individual procedures. Payment plans are available.
Our teeth whitening service includes the ‘White for Life’ program. This means anyone who has had Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening with us can get a free whitening top up boost every time they come in for their 6 monthly Hygienist appointments.
There’s NO extra charge, it’s completely free.
With the increase in desire for whiter than white teeth, many at-home, natural teeth whitening products have grown in popularity. However, the results of natural methods such as charcoal treatments pale in comparison to professional teeth whitening treatments in the dentist’s chair.
Yes, at Mona Vale Dental we use the Philips Zoom whitening system that allows your teeth to become up to 8 shades lighter in just over one hour.
There are many products on the market that claim to whiten your teeth at home. However, the best way to get your pearly whites as bright as bright can be is to visit a qualified dentist with experience in the process of tooth whitening. The techniques used by dentists are far superior and safer to DIY whitening treatments, both in their overall result and treatment times.
