teeth whitening treatments?

Whatever the reasons may be, professional teeth whitening has many benefits:
- Boosts your confidence

- Advanced blue LED light In-Chair teeth whitening removes plaque improving your oral health
- Results are long-lasting
- Proven to be a safe and effective treatment
Am I a good candidate for a
teeth whitening procedure?
If you’re suffering from tooth stains or discolourations then teeth whitening could be right for you. However, at The Dentist, we guarantee our professional whitening treatments only for those patients who undergo an examination and hygiene visit at our practice before they start whitening. This is because the overuse of whitening products can be damaging and dangerous.
Your dentist will tell you when you’ve reached your brightest shade and advise you to stop whitening, as your oral health and general well-being is of paramount importance to us.
Is Zoom teeth whitening worth it?
If you ask many of our previous patients they would say yes, Zoom! teeth whitening is worth it.
Zoom! has been proven to whiten teeth by up to 8 shades in just an hour, giving you a brighter smile and improving your confidence in just one treatment session.
What are my Zoom teeth whitening options?
You have 3 options when it comes to whitening your teeth:
Zoom! In-Office (In-Chair) Teeth Whitening
This product is designed as a quick-start whitening treatment or for people for whom take-home treatment isn’t an option. Due to its high concentration, it’s more harmful to soft tissues and skin than the other gels and can cause sensitivity.
This treatment involves a one-hour teeth-whitening session in our office that a patient can have done annually, but not more frequently. While the gel improves the brightness of your teeth it can also dry them out. Dry teeth can appear even brighter than hydrated teeth. It’s difficult to judge whether one session has significantly brightened your teeth and you may need multiple sessions.
Take-Home Teeth-Whitening Kits
This is our most popular whitening treatment. We think it’s the best for its predictable results, the time it takes to whiten and its value for money. Teeth sensitivity is common with whitening treatments and to help reduce it, we include a gentle tooth-rebuilding, calcium-based Toothmousse in your whitening packs, for after-care.
You should always contact us if you experience strong sensitivity, even after using Toothmousse. Our regular preventative care patients can also enjoy the benefit of being able to top up their whitening with a complimentary syringe of whitening gel once per year.
In-Office and Take-Home Teeth Whitening Combination Treatment
For the fastest and most effective results, you can combine an In-Office teeth-whitening treatment with a take-home kit. Ask your dentist how best to combine the two treatments for optimal results.
How much does Zoom! teeth whitening cost?

Below you can find the most frequently asked questions about our teeth whitening treatments in Sydney:
If you suffer from sensitive teeth then you may experience some discomfort or pain during whitening treatments. However, any pain or discomfort that you may experience will subside fairly quickly after treatment.
Yes, teeth whitening is a very safe, effective and minimally invasive way to brighten your smile, However, it uses a controlled substance that can be harmful if not used properly. Some unwanted and preventable side effects of teeth whitening are:
- Sensitivity to hot and cold during the whitening treatment.
- Chemical burns on gums, soft tissues and skin.
- Accidental swallowing of the whitening gel (that can be harmful in large quantities).
To avoid unwanted side effects follow these simple rules:
- Always follow your dentist’s directions and use only the whitening kit professionally made for you or recommended to you.
- Get a clean bill of health for your teeth and a professional clean before you start whitening treatment.
- Only use whitening products dispensed by a qualified dental professional.
- Consult your dentist regularly to check your results and discuss any side effects.
If you take care of your teeth and follow the directions given to you by your dentist, then a Zoom! teeth whitening treatment can last for one to two years. After this time your teeth will gradually return to their previous colour.
There are a number of ways you can keep your white smile for longer after having treatment. If you maintain good oral health (regular brushing and flossing) and avoid stain-causing foods or drinks, as well as avoid damaging your tooth enamel, then your teeth will stay whiter for longer. You can find more oral health tips here.
When carried out correctly, both in-chair and at-home whitening procedures are very effective. At your consultation, we’ll talk you through both options, which will give you the opportunity to decide which is best for you (depending on your preferences and price range).
Yes, using over-the-counter whitening gels and toothpastes will help you maintain your white teeth after treatment. However, by just using these products alone you will not be able to achieve the same results as having Zoom! whitening treatments.
Disclaimer: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a
second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Contact us for more information.
