What Is Professional Teeth Whitening And How Does It Work?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that lightens and brightens the colour of the enamel of your teeth. Professional teeth whitening is a popular and effective solution for enhancing your smile's appearance, giving you a brighter, more youthful look.

The main active ingredient in teeth whitening material is hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide has a whitening effect because it can pass easily into the tooth and break down complex molecules, without damaging your enamel.

It’s important to note that professional teeth whitening products used by dentists and oral health therapists are both TGA approved products, as well as much higher (yet still safe) doses of hydrogen peroxide compared to over-the-counter treatments. That’s how we’re able to get dramatic results in one in-chair sitting or through your professional take home whitening kit compared to weeks of trying to whiten your teeth with a lower percentage chemist kit.

Beware of beauty clinics offering professional whitening. These providers do not have any dental health training and will not be able to diagnose gum disease, cavities or other infections that need to be treated prior to tooth whitening. They are also not required or qualified to use TGA approved products, which could cause lasting damage to your tooth enamel if they use products that are not deemed safe.

At Today's Dentistry, we offer two main teeth whitening options to suit your individual needs and preferences:

In-Chair Whitening: Our professional in-chair teeth whitening treatment provides immediate, noticeable results in just one visit. We use a powerful whitening gel and advanced technology to safely and effectively brighten your teeth by several shades.
Take-Home Whitening: If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, we offer custom-made whitening trays to fit your unique mouth and professional-grade whitening gel. This option allows you to achieve professional results at your convenience, typically within a few weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions 
About Professional Teeth Whitening Brisbane

General Information

Which teeth whitening is best? What teeth whitening actually works?

Professional in-office teeth whitening performed by a registered dental professional is generally considered the best due to its immediate and significant results. Both in-office and quality at-home teeth whitening kits can work effectively to whiten teeth.

Which teeth whitening is safest?

If you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening, professional teeth whitening, either in-office or custom take-home treatment, is considered the safest, as it is administered by a dental health professional who can properly assess the health of your teeth and gums.

Teeth whitening at home VS at the dentist?

Both methods can be effective. However, if you’re using at-home whitening kits, you’ll get better quality results with professional kits from Today’s Dentistry than an over-the-counter chemist kit! Chemists cannot sell teeth whitening kits with the same concentration of active ingredients as we can, which is why professional teeth whitening is much higher quality.

In-office teeth whitening typically provides faster and more noticeable results, though can be more sensitive to some. Take home options provide a slower more controlled option, which is often ideal for anyone who experiences sensitive teeth.

What are the risks of teeth whitening without a dental health professional?

The risks can include uneven whitening, tooth sensitivity, gum irritation and burns, and potentially damaging tooth enamel. A proper examination with a registered dental professional is always recommended prior to commencing your whitening journey to minimise any risk of damage.

How long does teeth whitening last?

The effects of teeth whitening can last from a few months up to many years, depending on the method used and an individual's oral hygiene and lifestyle habits.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

Some people may experience temporary sensitivity or discomfort during or after teeth whitening. It is best to discuss any sensitivity issues with your dentist or oral health therapist prior to starting so we can minimise any sensitivity.

What's the quickest way to whiten teeth?

In-office professional teeth whitening usually provides the quickest results, often in a single visit.

Alternative Teeth Whitening Options

Are there natural teeth whitening options?

Natural methods such as oil pulling and brushing with baking soda can help remove surface stains, but their whitening effectiveness is not as substantial as professional methods. Baking soda runs the risk of damaging tooth enamel.

Does teeth whitening with baking soda work?

Baking soda can help remove surface stains, but it won't substantially whiten teeth and should be used sparingly to avoid damaging enamel.

Can you whiten teeth with coconut oil?

If you enjoy coconut oil pulling, you can do it. However it is not an effective way of whitening teeth.

Do teeth whitening strips work? And are teeth whitening strips safe?

The percentage of bleach is so minimal in whitening strips that it actually doesn't do much, although you may notice minor changes.

Do teeth whitening pens work?

Yes, teeth whitening pens can help remove some surface stains, but their effectiveness is not as great as professional whitening methods.

Does teeth whitening paste work?

Yes, teeth whitening toothpaste can remove some surface stains, but it won't change the inherent colour of your teeth. Also be aware that these toothpastes are more abrasive, which is how they remove the stain. It’s much safer to consult with our team at Today’s Dentistry and use professional whitening either in-chair or at-home to avoid damage to your enamel.

Is teeth whitening paint safe?

You might have seen teeth whitening paint on social media. The issue with whitening paint is that it’s often used to paint over heavily diseased teeth, and the longer that disease is ignored, the worse the damage gets. Please consult with our team before buying teeth whitening paint so we can help you identify any oral health issues you may be experiencing.


What's involved with teeth whitening treatment?

Teeth whitening treatment typically involves applying a peroxide-based gel to the teeth, either in a dentist's office or at home using a kit.

What does the teeth whitening light do?

In the past, lights helped to activate teeth whitening formulas. However advances in teeth whitening technology mean the light is no longer necessary. Plus, the heat from the light can actually cause damage to enamel if you’re not very careful with how much heat is applied. So it’s safer and effective to whiten without the light.

What are teeth whitening trays?

Teeth whitening trays are custom-fitted plastic trays used to hold whitening gel against the teeth. Professional whitening trays are carefully designed to provide maximum effectiveness for results.

How long after teeth whitening can you eat?

Typically, you should avoid eating or drinking anything other than water for at least an hour after teeth whitening to allow your enamel to rehydrate. While whitening it's also best to avoid strong coloured foods and drinks (like red wine or curries) to ensure maximum results.

Can you put teeth whitening in a retainer?

Yes, some retainers can be used with teeth whitening gel, but it's best to consult with a dentist before attempting this.

How do you know when to use teeth whitening or veneers?

This decision is typically based on the condition of your teeth and your desired outcome. Teeth whitening can improve the colour of discoloured teeth, while veneers can address more extensive cosmetic concerns including shape, size, and alignment, as well as colour.

Issues / Challenges

Can teeth whitening damage teeth?

When done correctly, teeth whitening should not damage teeth. However, overuse or incorrect use of whitening products can potentially cause tooth sensitivity or enamel damage.

Is it safe to get teeth whitening at a beauty spa?

Getting teeth whitening at a beauty spa can carry additional risks as beauty practitioners are not usually university trained and licensed oral health professionals, potentially leading to uneven whitening, gum irritation, or tooth damage. Whitening isn't suitable for everyone, and beauty practitioners do not have the tools or training to be able to identify oral health issues that need treatment prior to whitening.

Are teeth whitening kits safe?

Quality at-home teeth whitening kits can be safe when used as directed. However, misuse can potentially cause gum irritation or tooth sensitivity.

Can teeth whitening cause permanent sensitivity?

While teeth whitening can cause temporary sensitivity, it should not cause permanent sensitivity. If sensitivity persists, it's important to consult with a dentist.

Can teeth whitening damage gums?

If the whitening product is applied incorrectly and comes into contact with the gums, it can cause temporary irritation. It's always best to follow the product instructions or have the procedure done by a professional.

Can You Use Teeth Whitening If…

Can you use teeth whitening on sensitive teeth?

Yes, but you should consult with a dentist first as they may recommend specific products or procedures to minimise sensitivity.

Can you use teeth whitening with crowns?

Whitening products do not affect the colour of crowns. The bleach will not penetrate through porcelain or filling materials, only enamel. If you're considering teeth whitening and you have crowns, it's best to consult with a dental professional.

Can you use teeth whitening with veneers?

Teeth whitening does not affect the colour of veneers. If you're considering teeth whitening and you have veneers, it's best to consult with a dentist.

Can you use teeth whitening with braces?

It's generally recommended to wait until braces are removed before undergoing a teeth whitening treatment to ensure even results.

Can you use teeth whitening with fillings?

Teeth whitening does not change the colour of fillings. If you're considering teeth whitening and you have fillings, consult with a dentist.

Can you use teeth whitening while pregnant?

While there's no strong evidence that teeth whitening is harmful during pregnancy, many professionals recommend waiting until after pregnancy as a precaution.

Can you get teeth whitened while breastfeeding?

While there's no strong evidence that teeth whitening is harmful while breastfeeding, it's often recommended to wait until after breastfeeding as a precaution.

Can smokers get their teeth whitened?

Yes, smokers can have their teeth whitened, but results may not be as long-lasting due to continual staining from tobacco. Smokers are also at higher risk of gum disease, which needs to be treated prior to teeth whitening.

Can teens whiten their teeth?

Yes, teens can whiten their teeth, but it's best to do so under the guidance of a dental professional to avoid potential damage to developing adult teeth.
