How long does teeth whitening last?

Teeth whitening is one of our most requested treatments at our West End dental clinic and our dentists have years of experience helping people get whiter and brighter teeth. 

Teeth can become discoloured due to several factors including diet, smoking, medications and age. The good news – there are dental treatments available to whiten your teeth and gain back the confidence to smile.

Teeth whitening at The Practice 

At The Practice we know how important it is for our patients to look good and feel confident with their smile. Having white teeth can make a world of difference to your self-esteem if you feel self-conscious about yellow teeth.  

From our South Brisbane dental clinic we offer the latest teeth whitening procedures to ensure our patients can access innovative teeth whitening treatment. We offer two types of teeth whitening, in-chair and take-home whitening. 

In-chair professional teeth whitening

Sit in the comfort of our modern dental practice in West Village West End for light activated in-chair teeth whitening. You’ll need to set aside approximately one and a half hours, but you’ll walk out of our clinic immediately with visibly whiter teeth. 

During the visit our dentist will professionally clean your teeth and remove plaque and tartar to ensure you get the best results. We customise the teeth whitening to your individual needs. 

First we apply a whitening gel to the front of your teeth. Then, to activate the gel we use specialised light accelerated technology to improve lustre and reduce sensitivity. In-chair teeth whitening is painless and you can just relax in the chair as the whitening gel works to whiten your teeth. 

Take-home whitening 

Don’t have time for in-chair whitening? We offer take-home whitening kits. It may take longer than in-chair whitening, but you will get the same result in the end. For approximately two weeks you’ll need to use a fabricated retainer like object called a whitening tray which contains a whitening gel. 

It’s important to remember that every individual is different, so treatment times may vary. Our experienced dentists will recommend the best treatment for your teeth to ensure you get the best possible result.
