Teeth Whitening and what to expect

Updated: Apr 18, 2022

Many Australians are now interested in teeth whitening. We associate white teeth with youth and vitality while we think of yellow stained teeth as ageing. Having a bright, white smile gives us a confidence and glow that then carries over to all aspects of your life.

Teeth whitening costs have reduced tremendously and are now seen as a regular part of your self-care and beauty routine. There are so many options available including at-home teeth whitening kits and in-salon procedures. The time it takes to have a service has also reduced. You are able to zoom into Laser Smooth even in your lunch break, as a single treatment takes only 20 minutes. We can even take teeth whitening before and after photos for you so that you can compare and see your improvements.


Have realistic expectations for your teeth whitening results.

It is very important to have realistic expectations for what teeth whitening can achieve. Have you seen someone with a smile that is so white it’s blinding? Smiles this white are usually veneers and are usually not indicative of real teeth whitening results. It is a great idea, if possible, to have your first whitening experience in a salon such as Laser Smooth where your therapist can show you accurately the colour of your teeth at that moment and show you a realistic expectation of how many shades whiter your smile can be. Teeth whitening cannot change the colour of caps, false teeth or implants but can remove some external staining caused by coffee etc and make them appear brighter.

When it comes to teeth whitening, a good standard is to match the shade of white to a shade that matches your eye whites. The focus then will be on how beautiful your smile is rather than how blindingly white your teeth are.

Laser Smooth uses the PearlySmile Teeth Whitening process. It can whiten your teeth on average from 4-6 shades for a single treatment or up to 12 shades with a double treatment. These results will vary from person to person and can depend on many factors such as gender, ethnicity, diet, whether you smoke or not and oral care. The length of time your lovely white smile lasts will also depend on your aftercare, use of our maintenance kit and diet.

Does Teeth Whitening hurt?

There are some teeth whitening systems on the market that cause increased pain sensitivity. If you are searching for a system that does not cause pain sensitivity Laser smooth has the perfect system for you. No Pain, No Sensitivity and No Peroxide.

Although teeth whitening is a common procedure both at home and in salon it does involve using chemicals. Side effects are extremely rare with the PearlySmile system but people are individuals and may react in unexpected ways. Take any complications or damage to your teeth seriously and consult with a dentist if you have any concerns.

How safe is Teeth Whitening?

If you prefer to do your teeth whitening at home then it is essential that you follow all of the instructions correctly. Some products will cause damage to your teeth if they are left on for too long. It also will not make your teeth whiter if you leave it on for longer than recommended. The National Library of Medicine states here that when manufacturer’s instructions are followed teeth whitening is safe and effective.

Is your salon or kit legal?

Make sure your teeth whitening laser, LED service or home kit complies with Australian Dental standards. Remember if your kit is over 6.0% hydrogen peroxide, then it legally can only be applied by a registered dentist. There are many kits available on online sites that do not comply with our standards or do not list their ingredients. It is possible to do permanent damage to your teeth if you use non-quality or non-suitable products. PearlySmile has an at-home kit that complies with Australian standards, whitens perfectly and if instructions are followed does not cause any issues for your teeth.
