The average cost of Zoom teeth whitening in Melbourne, including a take-home kit, is $750. This affordable teeth whitening price is offered by The Smile Designer. The Smile Designer offers top-notch tooth whitening services in Melbourne, ensuring your smile radiates with confidence.

Types of Teeth Whitening

There are two primary types of teeth whitening methods:
  • In-Office Teeth Whitening: This is performed by a dental professional in a clinic. It typically involves the use of a higher concentration of whitening agents and may require one or more sessions to achieve desired results. In-office whitening offers fast and noticeable improvements in a short time. Our skilled teeth whitening dentist in Melbourne provides exceptional in-chair teeth whitening treatments, leaving your smile brighter than ever.
  • At-Home Teeth Whitening: At-home whitening methods include over-the-counter whitening products (such as whitening strips, gels, and toothpaste) and dentist-prescribed take-home kits. These products have lower concentrations of whitening agents and are used by the individual at their convenience over a longer period.
The choice between these methods depends on individual preferences, the degree of discoloration, and the speed at which results are desired. Consulting with a dentist can help determine the most suitable approach for achieving the desired level of whiteness. Seeking the best teeth whitening in Melbourne? Look no further than The Smile Designer for dazzling results.

Zoom Teeth Whitening Melbourne

Zoom Teeth Whitening Melbourne

The Smile Designer team will apply whitening gel to your teeth. The strength of whitening gel used can only be accessed by your dentist. Your gel will be activated by our ZOOM light.

This blue light is placed over your teeth for a few sessions, while you watch a movie or listen to music. Teeth will be visibly whiter in less than one hour with our Phillip ZOOM in chair whitening treatment!

We are the destination for best teeth whitening services in Melbourne and offer the procedure at our clinic under the supervision of our experienced dentists.The procedure is completed in less than an hour and provides you with immediate whitening results.

Before beginning the procedure, we will conduct a dental examination to identify any oral issues and learn more about your oral health. If there are any oral issues, we will provide you with comprehensive treatment procedures before whitening.

Our dentists will place a rubber shield through the teeth to cover and protect your gums from the exposure of bleaching gel. We will then apply the bleaching gel onto your teeth surface and use a Zoom LED light to activate the bleaching agent. The activated gel will remove the stains from your teeth and regain the original colour.

Based on the level of discolouration of your teeth, we may apply the gel for a second time and help you to achieve the desired whitening results. Since the whitening is completed under the supervision of our dentists, you get more accurate and significant results based on your expectations. Experience the magic of Zoom whitening in Melbourne at The Smile Designer, where your teeth’s transformation is our specialty.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits Melbourne

The Smile Designer Dentists will have you fitted for take-home whitening mouth trays. Impressions will be taken of our upper and lower teeth for the mouth trays to be made up. This will be included in the kit with your whitening gel to get your teeth shining white at the comfort of your own home. The custom fitting mouth-trays are yours to keep, and more gel can be provided whenever you are running low.

At-home whitening is the choice for people who prefer to perform the procedure in the comfort of their own home. You can choose this option if you favour slow, steady whitening results.

We will provide you with an at-home teeth whitening kit after examining your teeth and oral health. If you have any dental issues or impending oral conditions, we will provide you with treatment for the same before giving you the at-home whitening kit. We will also explain the procedure to you on how to whiten your teeth using the teeth whitening kit.

Your teeth-whitening kit will have custom-made whitening trays and bleaching gel. We suggest you brush the teeth before beginning and after completing the procedure to make the whitening more effective.

Apply the bleaching gel into the whitening trays and place them on your teeth. If there is any excess gel, wipe it out with cotton and ensure that your gums do not have any direct contact with the gel. Keep the trays fixed on your teeth for around 30 to 45 minutes – our dentists will advise you on the time period.

Then, remove the trays, wash your mouth and trays, and repeat this process every day until you get the right results. In most cases, you can get excellent whitening results in two weeks.

Trust The Smile Designer for professional in-chair teeth whitening in Melbourne, and unveil your radiant smile with every visit. If you are worried about teeth whitening costs in Melbourne, this is a good choice for affordable teeth whitening.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Enhanced Appearance: Whiter teeth create a more attractive smile.
  • Improved Self-Esteem: Boosts confidence and self-image.
  • Youthful Look: Contributes to a youthful appearance.
  • Non-Invasive: It’s a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure.
  • Quick Results: Rapid and noticeable improvements are possible.
  • Customisation: Allows gradual whitening control with at-home kits.
  • Affordability: Cost-effective compared to other cosmetic dentistry options.
  • Better Oral Hygiene: Encourages improved dental care habits.
  • Special Occasions: Ideal before significant events like weddings or job interviews.

Teeth Whitening Treatment Process

The teeth whitening treatment process typically involves the following steps:
  • Dental Evaluation: Before starting whitening, our dental professional evaluates your oral health to ensure you are a suitable candidate. Any existing dental issues, like cavities or gum disease, may need to be addressed first.
  • Color Assessment: The dentist may assess the current shade of your teeth and discuss your desired level of whitening to set realistic expectations.
  • Preparation: Protective measures are taken to shield the gums and lips from contact with the whitening agent, preventing potential irritation.
  • Application of Whitening Agent
  • Rinsing
  • Assessment: The dentist assesses the achieved shade and discusses any further sessions or at-home maintenance if necessary.
  • Post-Whitening Care: After the procedure, it’s advisable to avoid staining substances like coffee, tea, and tobacco for some time to maintain the results.
The specific details of the process can vary depending on whether you opt for in-office whitening or at-home whitening kits prescribed by a dentist. In-office whitening typically offers faster and more dramatic results, while at-home kits provide gradual whitening control. Consulting with a dentist ensures a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs and preferences.

The Reasons For Teeth Discolouration Or Staining

It is good to know the common reasons for teeth discolouration and staining. It can help you to avoid future discolouration and stains and improve your oral health.

  • Certain foods and beverages like red wine, tea, coffee, and some fruits and vegetables can stain your teeth.
  • The use of tobacco, including chewing tobacco and smoking, can discolour your teeth.
  • Lack of or inadequate brushing and flossing can also contribute to the colour of your teeth.
  • Certain trauma or illness can lead to discolouration of teeth. Treatment procedures such as chemotherapy and radiation are also some of the major reasons for teeth discolouration.
  • Some antibiotics and mouthwashes that contain cetylpyridinium chloride and chlorhexidine can stain your teeth. Certain drugs for high blood pressure and antipsychotic medications also make your teeth discoloured.

Cosmetic Consultations

It is always ideal that you maintain the health of your gums and teeth prior to whitening them.

There may be underlying problems that may affect the results of our whitening treatment, or cause more damage to your existing gums and teeth.

We advise that you either come in for your Check up & Clean appointment first OR book in for a cosmetic consultation where we will guide you through your options prior to starting any treatment.

Tips To Ensure Long-Lasting Whitening Results

Our teeth whitening can provide good whitening results for two years quite some time. However, with excellent care, you can ensure whiter teeth for a long time, together with routine maintenance and top up’s. The following tips and hygiene measures can help you to maximise the duration of whitening results: Stop the use of tobacco products and quit smoking. Minimise the use of consumption of tea, coffee, and other teeth-staining foods and drinks. Try to brush after every meal – especially the meals that contain staining foods. If that doesn’t work, then rinse your mouth with plenty of water. Reduce the consumption of sugary foods and choose a diet plan with plenty of calcium to prevent discolouration due to enamel erosion. Make regular dental visits and get professional dental cleaning at regular intervals.

FAQ’S About Teeth Whitening Melbourne

How do we use the Take Home Kits?

Take Home Whitening Kits are customised to fit your existing teeth. The whitening solution that is provided to you is meant to sit in your tray for a period of time. The amount of time spent whitening at home will depend on the whitening gel that we provide to you, and this is based on your own individual dental circumstances. You will get noticeably whiter and brighter teeth after just a few sessions. We advise that the take home whitening kits be used for a minimum of 2 weeks to see the optimal results.

How long does my whitening treatment last for?

Everyone’s dental situation is different. Depending on your existing dental condition, we expect your new smile to last a few months. Having red wine, drinking coffee and certain habits like smoking all contribute to how long your whitening lasts. Having a Take Home Whitening kit allows you to maintain that bright new smile with ongoing whitening sessions at home.

Does Whitening damage teeth?

This is a very common question, and the answer is no, whitening does not damage teeth. Teeth are made of a very strong enamel layer. However, sensitivity is a very common side effect of whitening, and can be managed with certain products that we will recommend.

What causes our teeth to become yellow?

There are a number of reasons why your teeth become dull and lose their bright sparkle. Certain foods can stain your enamel which is the outer layer of our teeth. Additionally, irregular visits to your dentist can cause plaque and calculus to build up around your teeth causing them to stain yellow. Getting your teeth cleaned professionally at regular intervals can reduce this build up, and our team at The Smile Designer recommend whitening your teeth to maintain that smile of yours.

Where is your dental clinic located?

We are located in Melbourne at 118-120 High street, Thornbury. We are on the border of Thornbury and South Preston, close to Bell Street, and just a stones throw away from surrounding suburbs like Northcote, Brunswick, Preston and Heidelberg.

Can I whiten my teeth if I have crowns or fillings?

Teeth whitening primarily affects natural tooth enamel, not dental restorations like crowns or fillings. It’s best to consult a dentist for personalised advice and potential alternatives if you have dental restorations and want to whiten your teeth.

How long do the teeth whitening results last?

Teeth whitening results typically last several months to a few years, depending on lifestyle habits and maintenance. Periodic touch-ups can help extend the whitening effect.

Can I whiten if I have sensitive teeth or gums?

Whitening teeth with sensitivity or gum issues should be done under a dentist’s guidance. They can recommend gentle options, desensitising agents, or at-home kits with lower whitening concentrations. Addressing underlying issues and following preventive measures are essential for a comfortable experience.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that brightens and enhances the appearance of your teeth by removing stains and discoloration.

How long does teeth whitening take?
The duration of a teeth whitening treatment can vary depending on the method used and the individual’s specific needs. Here’s a general overview:
  • In-Office Whitening: Typically takes about 1 to 2 hours for a single session. Some procedures may require multiple sessions for more significant results.
  • At-Home Whitening Kits: The duration can vary based on the product and concentration of the whitening agent. At-home kits may involve daily use for several days to a few weeks.
  • Over-the-Counter Products: These products usually require daily use over several weeks to see noticeable results.
  • Whitening Strips: Generally used for 30 minutes to 1 hour daily for a week or more.
It’s essential to follow your dentist’s or product manufacturer’s instructions carefully to achieve the best results without causing harm to your teeth or gums. Additionally, individual factors, such as the extent of discoloration and the response to the whitening agent, can affect the treatment duration.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening is generally safe when used as directed, but it can lead to tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. Consulting a dentist is advisable for personalised guidance and to address any existing dental issues.

And Maggie at the reception desk is always so welcoming and lovely to chat to, well worth the drive from Doreen.Anne N.Anne N. ★★★★★ I had the pleasure of having my teeth checked and cleaned by Dr Nathan Tran today.I was a little apprehensive at first since some cleans can be too hard (which feel very uncomfortable/painful), and others not hard enough (leaving me feel like I need another clean).Dr Tran took his time, and made sure that I was comfortable throughout. He showed me photos of my teeth before and after the clean - wow, what a difference! He also pointed out areas where he thinks I can strengthen/protect existing teeth to prevent potential cracking/decay (due to age) and possibly tooth removal. This has happened to me before so I was very grateful for his advice.The whole experience was easy and effortless, and I came away feeling reassured and positive about what I can do to keep my teeth clean and healthy.I highly recommend anyone who cares about their teeth as much as I do to go and see Dr Tran!Hayley F.Hayley F. ★★★★★ Just wanted to share my amazing experience with Dr. Gareth.

Due to part of my jaw missing, I have spent over a decade just coping with worsening jaw clicking and headaches. During the initial consult, Dev outlined all costs, treatments and expectations and immediately scanned me for a splint to wear. Absolutely everything was looked after and explained so clearly. All stress or hesitance connected with dentist visits(both personal and financial) was alleviated by them. I also loved the personalised welcome card projected on screen. I felt like an absolute princess. I cannot recommend the experience enough!Mrs W.Mrs W. ★★★★★ We were travelling and had a small 'emergency'. We walked in this morning and we were seen after filling in paperwork. We could not ask for nicer, sweeter, more comforting people all round.

For excellent dental care, I highly recommend Dr. Nathan !Vee T.Vee T. ★★★★★ Today I had a wonderful experience at my appointment with Dr Gareth. I have been to the dentist many times in my life but still get those nerves going into any appointment. The second I walked in I was greeted by a lovely young lady who was so friendly and welcoming. My time with Dr Gareth was no different and he put me at ease quite quickly and answered all my questions with lots of information and care. Because of this I have decided to take further dental care with The Smile Designer. My experience with Mia after my appointment was warm, engaging, caring and most importantly very informative.

He is very detailed in his approach but won't do any treatment that is not needed, just to charge you. Most recent visit to have my tooth taken out. He knew I had bad experienece with another dentist prior to this, and made sure he was gentle, but at the same time did an amazing (and fast) extraction, talking to me the whole time. Subsequent care was excellent as well, with follow up calls. I would highly recommend the whole practice, and especially Dr Gareth.Jenny Y.Jenny Y. ★★★★★ Dr. Gareth Huang's dental care exceeded expectations during my recent visit to The Smile Designer.
