Hawthorn Teeth Whitening

Professional Whitening | Take-Home Kits

Home > Teeth Whitening

At Hawthorn Smiles Dental, one of the most common cosmetic services we offer is professional teeth whitening. Whiter teeth are the perfect accessory to show off each day; plus, they’re a relatively affordable procedure when it comes to smile makeovers.

Our Hawthorn, Victoria dentists offer two types of whitening to choose from, depending on your time restraints and personal preferences.  One is completed right here in our office in just one day, while the other is a professional grade product that you can take home. Both offer the same, dramatic results.

Professional In-Office Teeth Whitening by a Dentist with Zoom!

Our same-day whitening method uses a laser to accelerate ZOOM! Whitening gel, oxidising stain particles in a quick and gentle manner. The entire process takes about 1-1.5 hours to complete. As soon as it’s over, you’ll have teeth that are several shades brighter than they were when you stepped through our front door.

The Best Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits

Some of our Hawthorn teeth whitening patients prefer to bleach their teeth at home. With a custom whitening tray, you can get the same results as an in-house procedure, but in a more flexible manner.

We’ll take an impression of your teeth to create custom trays. From there, you’ll place a small amount of whitening gel inside of the tray and wear it for about an hour a day. After 10-14 days you’ll see full results. Keep your trays on hand to touch up whenever necessary! Our Hawthorn dentists recommend a few applications after each of your dental checkups.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Products (Pens, Kits, and Strips)

It can be tempting to buy cheap pens, kits, or strips at Walmart or Amazon for at home whitening, but in the end the cost may not actually be worth it.  Since generically available methods aren’t prescribed by a dentist, they can’t whiten your teeth as significantly. Online reviews may even show unrealistic before and after photos. The weaker solutions won’t remove as much stain or work as quickly. Sometimes your results can even look patchy or uneven.

When it’s time to touch up, you’ll have to purchase a new kit each time. In the end, your best option is to whiten your smile professionally and use available gels to maintain your results.

Whitening with Existing Restorations

If you have existing dental work such as white fillings, ceramic crowns, or cosmetic bonding, they won’t respond to teeth whitening treatments or at home remedies for bleaching them. If you plan to whiten your teeth, you’ll want to have your dental work updated to match the rest of your smile afterward. But if you need treatment on a front tooth anyway, our professionals recommend whitening your teeth first, so that the new restoration can be matched to your naturally brighter smile.

Do You Qualify for Teeth Whitening?

Before starting any type of elective or cosmetic dental treatment, we’ll need to make sure that your natural smile is healthy. As long as you’re an adult or teeth that’s free of cavities or gum disease, then whitening is an option worth considering.
