What is Teeth Whitening?
Just as it sounds, teeth whitening treatments break down stains and discolouration to lighten the colour of your teeth. Because whitening can only lighten your natural teeth, existing restorations may need to be replaced to match your new smile.
Every patient is different; teeth whitening may not be suitable for every candidate, or you may need to address existing dental concerns first in order to safely undergo whitening procedures. We can help you understand your options and exactly what to expect from your whitening treatments.
Types of Teeth Whitening
In Chair Teeth Whitening
In-chair whitening is administered by one of our therapists and can take anywhere between an hour to 3hrs depending on the product you choose and is best suited. In some instances, we’ll combine a bright light and a uniquely-created solution to whiten/brighten your smile.
Take Home Teeth Whitening Kits
Take-home kits are specially tailored for you by our dental team. We’ll take an impression of your teeth and create a custom-moulded tray that you can use at home. We’ll also give you detailed instructions on how to use this kit yourself. Many patients benefit from a combination of in-chair whitening and on-going take-home kit use. In your consultation, we will discuss the treatment plan that is best for you.

Frequently asked questions
There’s a whitening kiosk at the mall, and whitening products I can buy myself – why should I see a dentist?
According to the ADA, the risk of experiencing negative side effects from whitening treatments increases when it doesn’t come from a registered dental professional1. Additionally, you may have pre-existing conditions or dental issues that make whitening treatments ineffective or problematic; you should seek a professional opinion before undergoing any whitening procedure.
The ADA has described possible side effects of whitening:
- Heightened tooth sensitivity
- Chemical blisters or burns on the gums or mouth
- Uneven or splotchy colouring
- Diminished strength or hardness of the enamel surface (sometimes this can be irreversible)
- Lack of results2
How safe is teeth whitening?
Whitening your teeth under the supervision of a cosmetic dentist has many safety benefits. The dentist will make you use of protective goggles, gels and gum separators to ensure that your gums and other soft tissues in your mouth are not exposed to the active bleaching ingredient. The dentist is also a trained clinician who is able to react in a calm and professional manner in the unlikely event of an allergic reaction or emergency situation. The dentist’s office is also a properly sanitised environment that minimises cross-infection, which makes it ideal for the teeth whitening procedure.
We recommend a consultation with your Gold Coast dentist, or even a professional cleaning, before undergoing whitening treatment. This can ensure that your procedure is as effective as possible. Speaking with your dentist first can decrease your risk of spending money on treatments that are less effective for you.
Your own individual treatment can depend on the type and extent of the whitening treatment you choose. We’ll be happy to outline your treatment plan with you during your consultation.
