Teeth Whitening

(Home Whitening System)

Teeth Whitening is a safe and effective treatment to brighten your smile.Our practice uses the take-home “Tray System” as well as an in office ‘Gel system’, as these methods are proven scientifically to be the most effective, longest lasting, safest and cheapest options.

Our dentists and hygienist can advise which option will help deliver the best results for your mouth. It is recommended you have a thorough examination and a hygiene appointment to ensure a healthy mouth prior to whitening. This will ensure the best outcome for whitening treatment. 

Take-home teeth whitening involves wearing a custom fitted appliance created in our surgery, which contains professional dental tooth whitening solution. The tooth whitening gel is placed into the trays and inserted over your teeth for 40 minutes once a day. Enjoy a Brighter Smile, by making an appointment and discuss teeth whitening with our experienced dentist or hygienist.

Before and After:

Common Questions.

We have compiled a few general questions relating to Wisdom Teeth, if you have a question of your own please don’t hesitate to contact our team.

How long will the results last?

Results will generally last 3-9 months, results will vary per person depending on your teeth and your eating/drinking habits.

Does it cause sensitivity or damage my teeth?

Occasionally there may be some sensitivity but this should settle once the whitening treatment is completed. The concentration and technique used by Alpha Dental Care does not cause any long term damage to the teeth and is backed by significant evidence.

Will it whiten my veneers, caps or crowns?

Teeth whitening products will only remove stains from real teeth. Crowns, Veneers, fillings will not change colour. For this reason depending on patients expectations, at times old crowns/veneers can be replaced to achieve the ideal smile. 

Fun Fact:

Generally foods and drinks that are high in sugar and acid are harmful to tooth enamel. Acidic foods and drinks (soft drinks, citric juices, sports drinks) can cause tooth erosion while high sugar content is more likely to contribute to tooth decay (cavities).
