Frequently Asked Qestions

We use a low 6% Hydrogen Peroxide Gel which is gentle on the teeth so 90-95% of our clients don’t feel any sensitivity but the other 5-10% feel a little sensitivity up to 24 hours after the treatment.

Each person is unique! Everybody’s results are different, and it all depends on your anatomy, age, lifestyle and diet.

We are achieving an average of 6-8 shades lighter after the first treatment but have seen results up to 14 shades lighter.

Some results may disappear within 6 weeks of your first treatment, this is why we recommend the 6 week top up. After the 6 week top we suggest coming in 6-12 months after your treatment depending on your diet/lifestyle.

We offer the latest whitening gel approved by Australian standards. Our gel is gentle and safe, and complications are extremely rare. Teeth Whitening is safe for crowns and veneers although these will not lighten as much as natural teeth.

Teeth whitening has become a popular way to prepare for weddings and other social events where people want to look their best. As some treatments can take time to be effective, you should make sure you leave enough time before the big day.

We recommend getting the treatment 7 weeks before the big event so you can get have the 6 week follow up for best results.

The treatment is safe for crowns and veneers and will only revert the veneers back to their original colour and not lighten as much as the teeth.

A dental examination should be done before tooth whitening. Your dentist can tell you if you are a good candidate for whitening.

In addition, you should have a dental clean to remove tartar and stains prior to tooth whitening that would block the whitening material from working.

Teeth whitening is a treatment that majority of all people can have, however, it is not recommended for children under 16 years of age or for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Do not have a teeth whitening treatment if you have gum disease or require dental work.

Teeth whitening gel will NOT damage or harm your tooth enamel. Enamel is considered the hardest tissue in the human body. Enamel consists of tiny tubules that can only be viewed under high magnification. Even though Enamel is the outermost layer of the tooth, it is the layer of tissue beneath the enamel that absorbs the majority of the stain, called dentin. In order to achieve successful whitening, the product flows through the enamel tubules and begins to lighten the underlying stained tissue.
