Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular, non-invasive treatment option to improve the appearance of your smile. Tobacco, coffee, tea, alcohol and natural ageing all contribute to the discolouring and yellowing of teeth. If maintained correctly, teeth whitening can provide patients with results that last.

As teeth whitening agents have varying levels of peroxide in them, all procedures should only be carried out by qualified dentists who use a clinically proven and safe products. Whitening treatments offered at beauticians and whitening clinics use suboptimal strengths of bleaching agents and results can be disappointing. Only a dentist can prescribe higher concentrations of bleach giving more effective and reliable results.

Before deciding which teeth whitening option is best for you, the dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to ensure proper health, as well as talk with you about your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits to ensure you get the best results.

The cost of teeth whitening will vary depending on the type of procedure, and you may also receive some rebate from your health fund. At WA Dental, we offer 2 different teeth whitening options:

Take-Home Whitening Kit

Brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home with one of our convenient take home whitening kits. The dentist takes a mould or scan of your teeth to make custom whitening trays. These trays allow the bleaching agent to be safely applied directly to the teeth, while minimising contact with the gums. The whitening gel is placed in the tray for about one hour each day, and results are usually noticed within two weeks. Don’t forget this is a complimentary treatment if you undergo Invisalign with Dr Marc.

In-Chair Whitening

At WA Dental we use the ZOOM whitening system, providing immediate and impressive results after approximately one hour. The treatment begins with a short preparation to protect the lips and gums. The dentist then applies the whitening gel, which is activated by light to accelerate the teeth whitening process. The gel is applied for up to four 15 minute sessions of light activation, for a total treatment time of an hour. During this time, you can relax, watch TV or listen to music.

Following the session, you will be given a complimentary take-home touch up kit.
