HOW DO TEETH WHITENING KITS WORK?
Most teeth whitening products use special bleaching agents as active ingredients, which have a high a high success rate and low risk of tooth sensitivity or damage if used correctly.
A whitening agent, usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide (which breaks down into hydrogen peroxide) is used in conjunction with a whitening accelerator. LED lamps, which emit a cold blue light to activate the whitening agent, are most commonly used and are also what we use in our kits.
Our kits are super easy for anyone to use, and you can watch our step by step video here.
ARE ALL TEETH WHITENING KITS THE SAME?
The most important factor in the effectiveness of teeth whitening kits is the gel used. Smile White uses the highest legal grade gel in Australia (18% Carbamide Peroxide/approx 6% Hydrogen Peroxide), which has already helped thousands of customers to achieve brilliant pearly whites, and we know will be guaranteed to bring a sparkly white smile to your face!
WHY SHOULD I USE A TEETH WHITENING KIT?
If you have a two a day coffee habit like us in the Smile White office (let’s face it...it’s more like five) then chances are regular brushing won’t be enough to keep those stains away. While tooth enamel seems like an extremely hard substance, it’s also very porous which means liquid or air may seep into through those tiny spaces, gradually causing discolouration over time. Red wine, other forms of food and drink, smoking, some medications and even some illnesses can all also take their toll on your teeth that regular brushing unfortunately won’t fix.
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest cosmetic dentistry procedures, and the results after a series of treatments can be dramatic. So, approximately how much do various teeth whitening options cost?
- In-Office Teeth Whitening: $450-$1,100
- Average Dental Appointment: $650
- Take-home Trays from the Dentist: $450
- At-home Teeth Whitening Kits: $75-$150
- Whitening Strips: $25-$70
Teeth Whitening Toothpastes: $8-$20*
(*note that teeth whitening toothpastes generally have extremely low concentrations of active ingredients, and are limited in effectiveness.)
Our Smile White Professional Teeth Whitening Kit is just $79.99, so as you can see it’s not only a super affordable option but also means you can whiten your teeth in as little as 20 minutes a day all from the comfort of your own home. Which means professional results at a fraction of the cost, while relaxing at home and watching Netflix!
WILL TEETH WHITENING WORK FOR ME?
As with any cosmetic dental procedure, teeth whitening may not be suitable for everyone. This includes pregnant or breastfeeding women, people suffering from gum disease or colitis, or children and adolescents whose teeth pulp (nerve) is still exposed. Teeth whitening products and procedures also work best on natural teeth, and are less effective on crowns, veneers, caps or false teeth. If you are unsure if teeth whitening is suitable for you, please check first with your dentist.
