Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening Applecross

This is by far the easiest and cheapest way to get a brilliant smile. There are many types of whitening products in the market, but only those performed and supplied by a dental professional will be safe.

The materials that are used for whitening should only be used in mouths that are completely healthy and free of diseases such as tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease.

The solutions have a component of hydrogen peroxide that can cause severe dental pain in situations where decay and periodontal disease is present.

Types of Teeth Whitening Procedures

  1. In-chair whitening. This involves the patient being in the dental office for a long period of time and having the solution applied several times over. This is a fast way of achieving whitening. As this technique takes longer it is a more costly option.
  2. Take-home whitening. This involves making a special guard that fits closely on the tooth and the patient using the whitening solution in their own time. This is the least costly of the two options

Qualified Candidates for Teeth Whitening


While whitening works very well on yellow teeth, it unfortunately does not effectively work on grey coloured teeth. Whitening will also not change the colour of any restorations (fillings or crowns).

In some cases there may be the need to change fillings or crowns that have discoloured with time if there is a dramatic difference in colour compared to your natural teeth.

If you are unsure if you are a suitable candidate for whitening call our rooms on (08) 9316 0555 for a complimentary consultation to see if this treatment is suitable for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who should use teeth whitening?

Anyone with healthy gums and teeth that are looking to brighten up their smile can benefit from teeth whitening.

It has been shown to be highly effective at removing stains from teeth, including tobacco, coffee, tea, tetracycline, and various other tooth stains.

A professional teeth whitening procedure with your Applecross dentist will not affect existing dental work.

What happens during teeth whitening?

When you visit Epsom Dental Care Applecross for a professional tooth whitening, you will wear a tray during the treatment that will cover your teeth with a specially formulated whitening gel.

Also, your dentist may use a type of light to enhance the whitening effects of the gel.

Does the treatment hurt?

Teeth whitening may cause slight sensitivity during or after treatment and slight discomfort in the gums. Both of these side effects are usually temporary and will disappear a few days after treatment.

It is important to let your dentist know if you experience any of these symptoms as your dentist will be able to advise how best to cope in the meantime.
