Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kits 

Our take-home teeth whitening kits are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, ensuring maximum contact with the whitening gel and reducing the risk of gum irritation. We provide you with a complete kit that includes custom trays, and professional-grade whitening gel to help you achieve the desired results.

How does take-home teeth whitening work?

  • The process is simple and convenient – we start with an initial consultation, conducting a full examination of your teeth and listening and understanding your requirements to deliver the best possible results.
  • Once you move forward with the treatment, we take a mould of your teeth to create custom-fitted trays that fit your teeth like a glove. These trays will have to be worn at home after adding the peroxide-based gel.
  • The teeth whitening gel is a well-balanced concentration of peroxide made according to your teeth condition and lightning requirements. Some patients may have more tooth sensitivity than others, so they may need a lesser-strength gel which will have to be left in the teeth longer. Whereas others might need a stronger gel which may be worn for two hours instead of overnight.
  • Our dentists will provide complete usage instructions and the recommended time to leave in the trays so that there’s no risk of gum irritation or weakening of the tooth enamel.
  • Over time, the gel gently and gradually whitens your teeth, leaving you with a brighter, more vibrant smile. The duration of the treatment depends on your unique needs and the results you want to achieve. This customised approach to teeth whitening ensures a safer and more comfortable treatment, suited to your lifestyle preferences.

For optimal results, we recommend scheduling a teeth cleaning appointment prior  to your teeth whitening procedure. Plaque buildup can impede the effectiveness of the whitening gel by preventing it from reaching the tooth enamel, resulting in less noticeable outcomes.

Benefits of take-home professional whitening kits

Our professional take-home teeth whitening kits are a safe and convenient option for anyone looking to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, at their own pace.

Take-home teeth whitening kits generally take longer and do not offer an instant whitening look as compared to in-chair teeth whitening. However, one of the major advantages of these kits is that they offer a more permanent result. The gradual whitening process works from the inside of your teeth, meaning that the results are longer-lasting and more natural-looking.

Additionally, because you have full control over the process, you can adjust the frequency and duration of your treatments to suit your schedule and lifestyle.

Once the colour of your teeth changes, it is a permanent change. Most people only need to redo the treatment after 3-5 years, not because their teeth have become yellow again, but because they have gotten used to the colour of their teeth and want to make them even whiter.

At Whitehorse Dental, we are proud to offer these high-quality, custom-made teeth whitening kits at a reduced and upfront price of $189 each, with no hidden or additional charges. This is because our state-of-the-art machine allows us to create these kits in-house, ensuring that they meet our exacting standards for safety and exceptional results. However, if you want to whiten your teeth further, you can get the top up gel for $90, which can cover 2 more weeks.

In- Chair Teeth Whitening 

In-chair teeth whitening generally takes one treatment of about 90 minutes with Zoom whitening. It involves applying a concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel on the teeth, which is then activated with laser light to speed up the whitening process.

While this approach gives you instantly whiter teeth in just one visit, the results may not be as enduring as our take-home teeth whitening kits and you may need to repeat the treatment after about six to twelve months.

The laser light used in this method dehydrates the teeth, producing an immediate, temporary whitening effect that may fade once the teeth are rehydrated with saliva. In addition, some individuals may experience tooth sensitivity due to the higher strength of the whitening gel.

In-chair teeth whitening is much more expensive than take-home teeth whitening. Therefore, we only recommend it for patients who prioritise immediate results and are willing to accept the possibility of their teeth returning to their original colour over time.
