Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is becoming more and more popular at our practice in Perth.

It involves applying carbamide peroxide to your teeth within custom made trays.

No matter which system we use, your teeth will only go as white as they want to go. This cannot be predicted and everyone’s teeth will lighten to a different degree. Equally, the natural colour of your teeth will return over time and so it does need maintenance.

We don’t use a laser to whiten in house. This is because we have found that this is more costly to the patient long term and also whitens the teeth very quickly causing postoperative pain.

We provide you with soft comfortable trays which can be worn for 1-2 hours a day. After 2-3 weeks your teeth will have reached their maximum whiteness. Occasionally some sensitivity can occur, which we can advise you about.

Once you have the trays, then you can buy the whitening gel from reception.
