Professional tooth whitening

Professional tooth whitening is a procedure designed to lighten the colour of your natural teeth. The tooth whitening system we use achieves significant colour change in many cases and your dentist will carefully consider which option will work best for you.

The long term results of whitening vary from patient to patient and depend on the original shade of your teeth, your age and the reason why your teeth discoloured in the first place. Most people require touch up treatments every six to 12 months to retain their desired colour. Unfortunately, existing fillings, crowns & bridges or veneers will not whiten and may need to be replaced to match your lighter coloured natural teeth.

Professional tooth whitening

First step towards a whiter, brighter smile

The first step to a beautiful smile is a discussion with your dentist about your treatment options and what you are hoping to achieve. If you do not attend the dentist routinely, it is recommended to have a thorough examination to check for any problems that may be affected by the whitening process. Your dentist will explain any problems identified during your examination and discuss your treatment options. Almost everyone will require a professional clean prior to whitening to remove calculus build up and any stains on the surfaces of teeth.


In office whitening

In-office tooth whitening produces maximum whitening result in the shortest possible time with minimum sensitivity. Immediate whitening results can be quite dramatic due to minor dehydration of your teeth. It is normal for the colour to tone down somewhat after treatment when your teeth rehydrate to a natural white tone.

If you are interested in whitening your teeth, your dentist will assess your suitability for in-office whitening during your examination appointment. In-office professional tooth whitening is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women, children under 14 years of age or any person with a known allergy to peroxide.

Take home whitening

Take home whitening

The take home whitening system offered at our practice includes custom made trays and whitening gel to allow patients to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home.

We will first ensure that your teeth and mouth are healthy so that it does not compromise the whitening procedure. Then, moulds will be taken to create thin and comfortable trays for the upper and lower teeth.

In the next visit, we will provide you with custom-fitted whitening trays along with instructions for use. Most patients witness visibly brighter teeth within 7 to 10 days.

I have just had my first appointment at Greenland Dental. WOW! What a great team. From the reception staff to treating staff, they were all such a pleasure.
Dr Catherine was very thorough, not only working on the tooth I was there to receive treatment on, but identifying some other problematic teeth and providing options for future treatment. I will definitely be returning for future procedures.
