Teeth Whitening in Melbourne, Victoria

Teeth whitening is an increasingly popular, reasonably priced and effective way to restore teeth to their original colour - or even brighter. It can be done quickly and safely, using a variety of approaches. It's considered the safest cosmetic procedure to be performed in a dentist's office, and can even be done in the comfort of your own home.

Tooth enamel is a very strong substance but it is also porous, so over time stains can seep in to the teeth. Regular brushing doesn't remove the stains effectively and even dental cleanings don't resolve the problem, which is why specific products have been developed. These typically combine a hydrogen peroxide (sometimes referred to as carbamide peroxide) gel with an activation process that enhances the speed and effectiveness of the whitening process. These are very effective at brightening a smile, and although there may be slight teeth sensitivity for the first 24 hours, otherwise there are generally no negative side effects.

We will have a look at 4 different options for Teeth Whitening in Melbourne, including at home and in-office treatments.

Pearly Whites (At Home Teeth Whitening Kits)

Availability in Melbourne: Pearly Whites delivers free of charge to within the Melborne CBD, to all Melbourne suburbs, and anywhere in Victoria.

Pearly Whites is based in the city of Geelong, Victoria and produces a range of teeth whitening products. These come in the form of kits and are designed to combine the convenience of at home teeth whitening and the type of high quality professional grade gels you'd otherwise normally only find at the dental office.

The Pearly Whites kits are ordered online (from this website, for example) as well as available from select dental clinics and retail outlets. They are created to allow customers to self-apply at their own leisure, when and where they choose. Each kit features dental-grade carbamide peroxide in the same high-quality formulation used in dentists' offices. The outcome is a combination of convenience and affordability with professional-level results.
These kits have a great track record, with 97% of Pearly Whites' customers reporting a noticeably whiter smile after the first treatment. The gels made by Pearly Whites contain 18% carbamide peroxide, the legal limit in Australia.

The Pearly Whites products come with a powerful LED light device which can help accelerate the whitening process.

Melbourne Dentist Clinic (In-office Treatments)

The Melbourne Dentist Clinic is a dental office that offers Emergency, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. They are open 7 days a week and offer a wide variety of services, including general and family dentistry and cosmetic services such as teeth whitening (also known as bleaching), dental implants, crowns and veneers.

Their teeth whitening process involves no invasive surgery, as they use a whitening product that works on your teeth through special non-harmful chemicals, which mix with oxygen to make your teeth lighter and whiter.

The total treatment length is between three to six weeks but after an introduction to the process at our surgery, their customers can apply the whitening product easily and effectively themselves.

This is comparatively expensive service (starting from $700) and requires an appointment and time spent in the dental chair, at least the start of the process, but they claim to achieve excellent outcomes.

How Much Does It Cost to Whiten Teeth?

As you can see from the above, there is quite a variety of prices due to the range of methods used. Dental bleaching ranges from relatively inexpensive retail kits to pricey cosmetic dentistry procedures and laser whitening treatments carried out in the dentist’s office. The price primarily depends on these few factors:

  • Time – Want pearly white teeth by tonight? That will likely cost you a fair amount more than if you can wait a few days or weeks. The speed with which you want to achieve a white smile will impact how much you are going to pay. This is because of the cost of the laser whitening equipment and because faster acting whiteners have more aggressive ingredients that will cost more.
  • Tooth Shades – Much like how long it takes to whiten, how much brighter you want your smile to be will affect the price you pay. If you just want to try to lighten them up with a daily whitening toothpaste, then it will typically cost around $10 per tube (although you should note that these have very low levels of active ingredients). If you are looking for a stunning white smile, you will have to pay for more powerful kits or methods that will give you the fast wow factor you want.
  • Method– If you choose the cosmetic dentistry or local dentist in-office option, then you will need to be prepared to spend upwards of $500 to brighten your smile. This is because you are paying for the product as well as the dentist’s time. If you choose a dentist dispensed take away kit, then you will be able to get a pearly white smile for less than an in office procedure, and if you choose an over the counter option - like the Pearly Whites Best Friends Pack - you will likely pay the least for comparable results.

Choosing the Best Dental Bleaching Products

The type of tooth bleaching product you use really depends on your preference, time constraints, and budget. The three most common categories are:

  1. In-Office – This is the most expensive option available because it requires being under the supervision of a dental professional. You will need to schedule a consultation with a dentist or other cosmetic dentistry professional who will assess your oral health and determine if you are a good candidate for treatment. If you are approved, the professional will typically use a bleaching gel that is activated by a strong UV light to lighten your teeth. This process normally takes about 1 hour and can cost anywhere from $500, depending on the dental clinic you visit.
  2. Dentist Take Home Kits – These kits must be dispensed by dental professionals and they contain many of the same bleaching chemicals as the in-office treatment methods. The difference is that these kits can be done at anywhere you choose. You will need to request that your dentist or oral health care provider order a kit, and when you pick it up they will give you instructions on how to use the kit to maximize your results. These kits vary in time commitment from days to weeks and typically cost a few hundred dollars.
  3. At Home Systems – Bleaching your teeth using an over the counter product is one of the most popular options because it fits into most budgets and schedules. You are able to carry out the treatment at a time and place that suits you and you can choose the product option that fits your budget and shade goals. Whiteners like toothpastes can cost just a few dollars at the store, but will take a fairly long time to work when compared with more powerful OTC products. Other whitening systems that can be used whenever and wherever you wish are gel kits, pens and strips. These options typically cost under $100 and can give you visible results in a matter of days although they may require regular use before you see a significant improvement or achieve your desired tooth shade.
