Teeth Whitening In Johannesburg

At Hills Dental Studios, we believe that everyone deserves to have a smile to be proud of. 

That’s why we offer comprehensive teeth cleaning services that are designed to remove plaque, tartar, and other buildup, leaving your teeth clean, healthy, and shining bright.

What Is Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis, is a professional dental procedure performed by dental hygienists or dentists to remove plaque, tartar (calculus), and stains from the surfaces of teeth. 

It is a crucial aspect of oral hygiene and plays a significant role in maintaining healthy teeth and gums.


Here are some tips on how to prepare for a teeth cleaning procedure:

  • Avoid eating or drinking anything for at least two hours before your appointment. This will help prevent food particles from getting stuck in your teeth and making the cleaning more difficult.
  • Brush and floss your teeth as usual the night before your appointment. This will help to remove any plaque or tartar that has built up since your last cleaning.
  • Take any medications that you normally take with you to your appointment. This is especially important if you take any blood thinners, as these medications can increase the risk of bleeding during the cleaning.
  • Let your dentist or hygienist know if you have any pain or sensitivity in your teeth or gums. They may need to take extra care during the cleaning to avoid causing any discomfort.


Here’s an overview of what happens during a typical teeth-cleaning procedure:

Oral Examination: 

The dental professional begins by examining your mouth, teeth, and gums. 

This examination helps identify any dental issues or areas that may need special attention during the cleaning.

Plaque And Tartar Removal: 

Using specialized dental instruments, the hygienist or dentist carefully removes plaque and tartar buildup from the tooth surfaces, especially around the gum line and between the teeth. 

Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth, and tartar is hardened plaque that cannot be removed with regular brushing and flossing.


Scaling involves the removal of plaque and tartar from both above and below the gumline. 

This is crucial for preventing and treating gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis.


After the scaling process, the dental professional polishes the teeth using a special abrasive toothpaste and a high-powered brush or rubber cup. 

This step helps remove surface stains, leaving the teeth smooth and shiny.

Fluoride Treatment (Optional): 

Some dental offices offer fluoride treatment after teeth cleaning. 

Fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel and can be especially beneficial for individuals at higher risk of developing cavities.


As part of the cleaning procedure, the dental professional often provides personalized oral hygiene instructions and tips. 

They may recommend specific toothbrushing techniques, flossing methods, and other oral care practices to help you maintain a healthy smile between dental visits.

Teeth cleaning is typically a painless procedure, although some individuals with sensitive gums or teeth may experience slight discomfort during scaling. 

The frequency of teeth cleaning appointments can vary from person to person, but it is generally recommended to have a professional cleaning every six months as part of a regular dental check-up. 

However, some individuals with specific oral health conditions may require more frequent cleanings.

If you are looking for a dental studio to get any work done on your teeth, I absolutely recommend Hills Dental Studio. From the moment you enter, you are greeted by the friendliest receptionist. The two dentists (Dr Surprise and Dr Craig are super welcoming. I've never liked going to the dentist and in the past, I would suffer from so much anxiety if I needed to get anything done.Dr Craig played soothing RnB music and I totally forgot he was doing a tooth extraction. He's always patient with me whenever I go for my monthly check ups. I've only had my braces in for 3/4 months now and I've seen a huge improvement. I cannot wait to see the final results 😁😁😁😁😁
