At Perth City Dental, we offer a comprehensive range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to help enhance the look and feel of your smile. From teeth whitening, one of our more popular treatments, through to full mouth reconstruction, our experienced team of Perth dentists can help you achieve a better, whiter smile.
Teeth whitening is a form of cosmetic dentistry which has become an increasingly popular request in Perth. Painless and safe, it is the ideal way to help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile, at an affordable price. There are many benefits behind undergoing teeth whitening, however the main benefit being that teeth whitening doesn’t require any removal of healthy tooth structure and is generally a very affordable way to help you achieve the smile you’re after. Most of our patients who choose to undergo cosmetic dentistry are wanting to achieve a brighter smile for their wedding day, a special occasion, or to help diminish tooth spots and stains. At Perth City Dental, we can help you achieve a bright, white smile for any occasion. Better yet, because of our CBD location, you can achieve fast results during your lunch break or conveniently before or after work.
Our teeth whitening treatment at our Perth, CBD clinic can be applied one of two ways:
Zoom® in-chair teeth whitening system.
This is done in a single appointment in our Perth CBD clinic where 25% hydrogen peroxide gel is placed on your teeth and a UV light is used to activate the gel which speeds the teeth whitening process up. Throughout this process, all soft tissues (including gums, lips, tongue and cheeks) are protected from exposure of this light and gel. The effects of teeth whitening range from patient to patient, but results are immediate and patients are happy with the degree of whitening experienced. There is usually a side effect of sensitivity which can last anywhere between 24-48 hours. Complimentary customised teeth whitening trays are also supplied, together with a desensitising gel – to help control any sensitivity, and a teeth whitening syringe to ‘top up’ the whitening at home, at any time.
Take-home teeth whitening kit.
This kit involves customised whitening trays and a carbamide peroxide gel (usually 35%), which you would use for approximately 15-30mins/day for 2 weeks. This method of teeth whitening is also effective, but the general feedback from most of our Perth patients is that compliancy is often the issue.
Prior to whitening, our dentists will always want to perform a thorough clinical examination of your teeth and gums, as well as taking x-rays if required, performing a scale & polish, and also a Fluoride treatment. These services are charged separately to the teeth whitening cost, and we ensure these services are completed before your teeth whitening begins to ensure your teeth and gums are in good health. You may wish to discuss with the dentist if teeth whitening attracts any private health fund rebates.

Before Teeth Whitening
After Teeth Whitening
You might be wondering if your teeth need whitening or not. Teeth whitening is not a part of our general dental health services, and falls under the cosmetic dentistry category, which means it is not a mandatory treatment and is purely an elective treatment. However, teeth whitening is extremely popular as it’s an affordable way to brighten the colour of your teeth and the brightness of your smile. Many of our patients receive teeth whitening treatments to help reduce yellow stains caused from coffee or smoking, discolouration, or simply for a special occasion. If you’re not sure if teeth whitening is for you, or if you require more information about our two teeth whitening applications, please feel free to contact our Perth City Dental team today.
