Teeth Whitening

Our teeth whitening system is the simplest and most effective system available in Australia for use outside of dental clinics. A Hydrogen peroxide gel and targeted blue LED light provides whitening results up to 12 shades lighter for most patients


Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that aims to lighten the colour of the teeth by removing the appearance of stains and discolouration. Our teeth whitening method uses an in-clinic whitening treatment, using a 6% hydrogen peroxide solution that is applied and activated by a blue LED light to speed up the whitening process.

There are several ways to whiten teeth, but most methods work by using a hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide based gel bleaching agent to break down and remove stains on the surface of the tooth.The peroxide in the gel penetrates the enamel and reacts with the stains to break them down. This process is called oxidation, and it produces oxygen molecules that help to lighten the colour of the teeth.

Our teeth whitening gel is the strongest available for use in Australia outside of dental clinics, and it has shown us amazing results for our patients, on average 4-8 shades white for the double session, and 8-12 shades white for our triple teeth whitening treatment is seen.

Teeth whitening is generally a safe and effective for the vast majority of patients. There are some situations where teeth whitening may not be suitable and should be avoided or delayed: 

  • If you are pregnant or nursing, it is not recommended to undergo teeth whitening because the safety of the procedure has not been established.
  • If you have dental restorations like fillings, crowns, or veneers, teeth whitening may not be effective, and it can cause uneven coloration. These restorations do not respond to whitening agents, and they will not change color with the rest of your teeth.

  • If you have tooth decay, gum disease, or other dental problems, teeth whitening should be postponed until these issues are treated. Whitening products can cause sensitivity or irritation in teeth that are already compromised.

  • If you have a history of allergies to peroxide or other whitening agents, you should not undergo teeth whitening.

  • If you are under 16 years old, teeth whitening is generally not recommended because the pulp of the teeth is still developing, and the whitening agents can cause sensitivity or damage.

  • If you have severely stained or discolored teeth that do not respond to conventional teeth whitening treatments, your dentist may recommend alternative treatments like veneers or crowns.

It’s important to consult with your dentist before undergoing any teeth whitening treatment to determine if you are a good candidate and to discuss any potential risks or side effects.

Your teeth can only whiten to their most natural shade of white (unless you visit the dentist). Our patients achieve an average of 4-8 shades whiter per double session, and 8-12 shades white for our triple teeth whitening treatment.

The longevity of your results depends largely on your lifestyle and the current condition of the tooth, like enamel density, calcium deposits & previous dental work. Things like smoking, red wine, coffee or any coloured foods and drink too early post treatment can impact your final results.

Generally, teeth whitening can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the above factors. Touch-up treatments can help prolong the results and keep your teeth looking their best. It’s important to follow your dentist’s instructions and maintain good oral hygiene habits to help maximise the duration of your teeth whitening results.

Teeth whitening is generally safe for everyone, 

After a teeth whitening session, straws are the best tip for aftercare and you’ll need to maintain your results by following the below aftercare instructions post treatment; 

  • Avoid staining substances for at least 48 hours after treatment, avoid consuming substances such as coffee, tea, red wine, or any food or drink that can stain teeth. If you must consume them, use a straw to minimise contact with the tooth surface.

  • Don’t smoke: Smoking can cause staining and discolouration of teeth, so it is best to avoid it altogether, especially after a teeth whitening treatment.

  • Use a sensitive toothpaste: If you experience sensitivity after the treatment, use a desensitizing toothpaste for a few days to alleviate discomfort.

  • Touch-up treatments: Depending on the type of whitening treatment, you may need touch-up treatments every 6-24 months to maintain ongoing results.

Considerations before Treatment;

  • Tooth sensitivity: Teeth whitening can cause temporary tooth sensitivity, particularly to hot and cold temperatures. In some cases, this sensitivity can last for several days or even weeks after treatment.
  • Gum irritation: The bleaching agents used in teeth whitening treatments can irritate the gums, causing them to become red, swollen, and tender.
  • Enamel damage: Overuse or misuse of whitening products can damage tooth enamel, leading to tooth sensitivity and other dental problems.
  • Uneven results: Teeth whitening may not produce uniform results, particularly if the teeth have different levels of staining or if the whitening treatment is not applied evenly.
  • Relapse: Without proper aftercare and maintenance, teeth can gradually become stained and discolored again, particularly if you consume foods and drinks that can stain teeth.

If you are considering teeth whitening, it’s important to discuss any concerns or questions with your dentist beforehand to help choose the best treatment for you and help minimise any potential risks or side effects.

Upon arriving to Angel Aesthetics, you will be greeted by our Angels and checked in via our booking system. If you have any patient forms left to complete (these are sent as part of your reminder message), please arrive at least 5 minutes early.

At your appointment time, your therapist or nurse will take you through and begin your consultation, provided as part of all treatments booked – we’ll never treat you without knowing your goals.

During this consultation, your therapist will discuss the best treatment option for you, advising you of your expected results, what treatment is recommended to meet your goals, and go through your aftercare instructions & anything to look out for

Treatment should be completely pain free and finished in approximately 60 minutes, with a hydrogen peroxide applied to the teeth and left on 2-3 times for 20 minutes intervals. The gel is then rinsed off and the process repeated. After your treatment your therapist will take you through to reception to complete payment, where you’ll be offered to sit and relax with a sparkling or still water to unwind and relax post treatment.
