Welcome to Pearly Whites
Pearly Whites Australia is creating a way for the everyday person to achieve a celebrity smile at home without spending hundreds of dollars. With our high-quality dental-grade teeth whitening formulas, you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home for just a fraction of what it would cost for the same treatment at a dentist.
The Pearly Whites Range of Dental Whitening Kits
Pearly Whites offer a variety of at-home products, all of which are designed to offer a safe and simple way to brighten up your smile. Our easy to use teeth whitening kits and pens come with a whitening gel that is 18% carbamide peroxide, the same percentage you’ll most often find at the dentist. Unlike a lot of whitening kits on the market, ours contain only the highest quality whitening formula and premium accessories that together create the ideal product so you can whiten your teeth safely, in the comfort of your own home.
Our most popular at-home teeth whitening product is the Professional Teeth Whitening System. This is a terrific kit that contains everything you need for a brighter, whiter smile. The kit comes with a Pearly Whites LED Light which activates the whitening gel and speeds up the process, and enough whitening gel for 12-15 treatments in 3 individual tubes. The kit has mouldable mouthguards, a Desensitisation Gel which helps replace minerals in the teeth, seal your results and soothe after whitening, a mouth guard case and colour chart.
We now offer a double-pack in the form of our Best Friends Pack - two full Professional Teeth Whitening Kits with everything listed above, at a discounted price that makes it ideal for sharing with your BFF. Split the cost or treat a loved one with this beautifully presented double pack of teeth whitening kits.
For the more budget conscious, we offer a Teeth Whitening Starter Pack. This kit has been scaled down to offer just the essentials, but still contains the dental grade ingredients and high quality LED light used in the Professional kit. It's great value for money, safe and easy to use, and a great way to get an amazing smile. The Starter Kit contains 2x 3ml of teeth whitening gel, which should be enough for 8-10 treatments. Due to popular demand, we recently started offering this in the form of a Twin Pack of two Starter Packs bundled together at an even more discounted price.
Pearly Whites Charcoal and Coconut Whitening Strips
The Pearly Whites Charcoal and Coconut Whitening Strips are created with a unique, patent-pending formula developed right here in Australia. These strips were specially formulated to provide a whitening alternative for sensitive teeth. Our 'ON THE GO' Coconut & Charcoal Whitening Strips are available nowhere else, and combine the natural whitening and antibacterial powers of activated charcoal and coconut oil with a gentle whitening agent. This dental cosmetic product contains no CP or HP at all. Safe for sensitive teeth and Vegan friendly, these are a great alternative to conventional whitening kits. Convenient and inexpensive, these dental whitening strips are an excellent way to get an even more beautiful smile.
Whitening Pen Express
The Pearly Whites Whitening Pen Express is an easy to apply and effective Do It Yourself whitening treatment, ideal for quick touch-ups on-the-go or when travelling. It contains the high quality 18% carbamide peroxide formula used in our kits in the form of a pen. Simply paint it directly on to the surface of the enamel, leave it for 10 minutes and then rinse with toothpaste and warm water to remove. It’s a quick way to brighten up your smile whereever you are and the results speak for themselves.
Pearly Whites offer other products including Whitening Gel Refills for an inexpensive way to get more out of your Professional or Starter Kits. Each refill pack contains 3 individal tubes of our high-quality dental bleaching formula, enough for another 12-15 treatments. We offer LED lights (ideal for replacements or to use with other kits), the enamel booster and desensitising pen, replacement sets of mouldable mouthguards and even online Gift cards in a variety of values.
Why would you want Pearly White Teeth?
A teeth whitening treatment is an increasingly popular, reasonably priced and effective way to restore teeth to their original colour. We all know that real beauty is more than skin-deep, but also that first impressions count and people make judgements in moments. Your smile is one of the first nonverbal cues you give to people.
The results of an independent study conducted on behalf of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 2004 were that 99.7% of people surveyed believe a smile is an important social asset - that would be 997 people out of a thousand. 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex, and that three-quarters (74%) of adults feels an unattractive smile can even hurt a person's chances for career success.
When respondents were asked, "What would you most like to improve about your smile?" the most common response was "Whiter and brighter teeth".
In many ways, these are unfortunate statistics - physical characteristics, like the brightness of teeth, shouldn't be such key factors in dating and relationships, and certainly not when it comes to job interviews and career performance - however confidence in your own smile can be a big help in such situations.
The Pearly Whites products have been designed and formulated to offer a convenient, quick and reliable way to brighten up a smile at an affordable price, providing you with the best results.
How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?
- In-Office Teeth Whitening: $450-$1,100
- Average Dental Appointment: $650
- Take-home Trays from the Dentist: $450
- At-home Teeth Whitening Kits: $75-$150
- Whitening Strips: $25-$70
- Teeth Whitening Toothpastes: $8-$20*
(*note that teeth whitening toothpastes generally have extremely low concentrations of active ingredients, and are limited in effectiveness.)
As you can see, how much teeth whitening costs varies widely according to the approach used and the provider. Pearly Whites offers The Professional Kit for home teeth whitening, and a less expensive Starter Kit.
Also note that there are four classes of teeth: incisors, canines, premolars, and molars. Almost every dental bleaching treatment and product focuses on the incisors, canines and premolars that are visible when smiling (for most people, this will be the ten central teeth in the upper jaw (maxillary) and ten central teeth at the lower jaw (mandibular). The reason for this is that the rearmost teeth (molars) are much more difficult to access and offer by far the least visible gains through whitening.
How does it work
A whitening agent (either a hydrogen peroxide gel or a carbamide peroxide gel which breaks down into hydrogen peroxide) is used along with an appropriate whitening accelerator. A commonly used accelerator is an LED lamp emitting cold blue light with a wavelength of around 465 nanometres. This wavelength of light is ideal for activating the carbamide peroxide and accelerating the dental whitening process.
Although there are significant differences among the teeth whitening lights available on the market, the most important factor is the gel, which is why Pearly Whites kits are supplied with a high quality gel containing the highest percentage of Carbamide Peroxide permitted in Australia (18% CP which breaks down into roughly 6% HP).
As your dentist will tell you, tooth enamel is an extremely hard substance but is also porous, with tiny spaces through which liquid or air may pass, enabling stains to gradually seep into the teeth. Over long periods of time, teeth can become discoloured from coffee, smoking and other food and liquid substances. Regular brushing with toothpaste won't be sufficient, and even regular visits to the dentist and standard dental cleaning won't remove the stains effectively.
When using a Pearly Whites in-home teeth whitening kit, the set up and treatment procedure is very simple. To get the best results read the instructions and watch the video demonstration seen here.
Will it work for me?
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures, and the results after a series of treatments can be dramatic. This type of dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discolouration caused by the staining food and drink can cause, aging, or environmental damage to teeth. Using high quality products and the highest amount of active dental bleaching ingredients (18% Carbamide Peroxide/approx 6% Hydrogen Peroxide) permitted in Australia, Pearly Whites has helped many thousands of customers achieve brilliant smiles.
As with any cosmetic dentistry procedure, teeth whitening may not be suitable for everyone. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, children and adolescents whose teeth pulp (nerve) will still be exposed, and patients with gum disease, colitis and several other ailments are normally precluded from the treatment. Please also note that these teeth whitening systems work best on tooth structures, and less well on crowns, veneers, caps or false teeth. If unsure as to your own suitability it’s best to check with your dentist.
As with teeth whitening at the dentist, there may be slight tooth sensitivity for the first 24 hours otherwise, however, there should be no negative side effects.

What Is the Right Shade of White?
This is a very common question, and the answer is that technically there is no 'right' shade of white. Natural teeth are a pale shade of ivory rather than a pure white, and many people want to return their teeth to this colour. Others want to get that less natural movie-star type of white; an extremely bright colour beyond the lightness of even brand new teeth.
We recommend the softer, more natural shade of white, which will look amazing and give you a stunning smile while being a lot easier to maintain. What shade is best for you comes down to personal preference, the unique brightness potential of your own teeth, and the amount of time and sessions you are willing to dedicate to it. You will also need to factor in how stained or off-white the teeth were before beginning the whitening process, which will have an impact on the amount of time and gel required to meet your expectations.
