A whiter, brighter smile!
The most popular cosmetic treatment is teeth whitening because it is an easy and fast way to transform a dull smile. A brighter, more youthful looking smile is a common dental wish and with our at-home whitening system, it is achievable in as little as 2-3 applications.
Freshening up your smile
Our whitening patients range from all ages from 18 years onwards and how white and bright they want their teeth is in their hands. You’re in control with at-home whitening and can transform your smile with a brightening of 1-3 shades right through to the whitest smile possible. Remove years of staining from coffee, tea, red wine and smoking as well as discolouration from age, poor oral hygiene and even some medications.
Before you begin whitening
Teeth and gums should be in optimal condition prior to whitening. A thorough dental examination and hygiene visit (cleaning) is required to identify possible dental concerns such as decay and deteriorated fillings and to ensure all hardened plaque and tartar is removed off the surface of teeth.
If you have any deteriorated or discoloured dental fillings on your front teeth, these may need to be replaced prior to beginning whitening treatment. The whitening process will not lighten any dental work such as fillings, veneers, crowns or bondings.
The whitening process
- Dental examination, hygiene treatment and dental treatment if required for optimal results.
- A mould is taken of your teeth (using a soft impression material or digital scan). This is used to make the custom-made whitening trays that you wear when whitening at home. These trays are similar to a light-weight mouth guard and they fit very snuggly around your teeth and gums. This is important as we don’t want the whitening gel to leak out into your mouth.
- Once the trays are made (about 3-7 days) by our lab technicians, we see you again to check the fit of the trays and discuss the at-home directions. Your current teeth shade and photos are taken as a record to compare your results. You will be given your trays in a protective case, the whitening gel syringes, instructions and if you usually have sensitive teeth, the dentist will give you a desensitising toothpaste or medicament to use.
- At home, you can whiten over night or during the day and this may depend on the type of gel being used. Brush and floss your teeth prior to remove any plaque and food debris. Apply a tiny amount of gel into the tray in each tooth indentation (your dentist will demonstrate this technique).
- While wearing the trays, do not eat or drink.
- After each whitening application, gently rinse your teeth and clean the tray with cold water.
- Avoid any foods or drinks with colouring that can stain your whitened teeth.
- If you are experiencing sensitivity, you can brush with desensitising toothpaste or place the medicament into the tray and wear it for 1-2 hours.

I have a dental crown on my front tooth. Will it be whitened too?
Great question! The whitening gel is effective only on tooth enamel and will not bleach any dental work such as crowns, bridges, implants, fillings, bondings or veneers. If your existing dental work is too dark or yellow for your liking, it can be replaced to match the new shade of your whitened teeth. Once this is done, you may have to ‘top-up” your whitening every few years to maintain the same colour.
I have sensitive teeth, will it hurt?
Teeth whitening is usually comfortable and pain-free. If you normally experience cold sensitivity, you may experience some degree of discomfort or sensitivity while whitening. Your dentist may recommend a desensitising toothpaste or medicament to use prior and during the whitening process to ease your discomfort. A milder gel formulation may also be available for you to use to avoid tooth sensitivity.
Can I control how white my teeth get?
Yes! The great thing about at-home whitening is you have control and can stop using the whitening gel when you’re happy with the results. When you feel like going a little lighter, you can apply the gel again or keep it on the fridge until you need a ‘top-up’ down the track.
