Professional Teeth Whitening in Auckland

At Dental Wellness we take the long-term health of your teeth seriously. Before undergoing teeth whitening treatment you will need a pre-treatment consultation. Our dentist will check your teeth and gums and discuss your whitening goals so that we can advise the most suitable option for you.

Some teeth may need other treatment before whitening can be safely performed and this can be identified at the pre-whitening examination.

Results can vary, but generally the improvement is great enough for you to see a change.

Quick tip

Some stains can be removed with teeth cleaning using our airflow polish and will significantly brighten your teeth if the stain is not in-grained into the teeth. We recommend a hygiene clean before teeth whitening treatments.

We Offer Two Main Options:

In-clinic teeth whitening

For in-clinic teeth whitening in Auckland, we offer a professional whitening procedure that’s done in the dental chair. It’s the fastest and most effective way to whiten teeth and usually takes around one-and-a-half to two hours to complete. In-practice whitening is the best option if you want almost ‘instant’ results.

The teeth whitening dentist will first apply a protective gel to your lips and gums, followed by the application of the whitening gel, which contains a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide, to the teeth. The process varies in length, depending on the depth of the stain and your whitening goal. It can be a little uncomfortable having your mouth open for such a long time, but many patients find listening to music or watching a movie helps to distract them. The upside is that there is usually only one treatment required and the results last a long time. Deep staining may require additional treatments.

Typical appointment overview:

  1. Pre-whitening appointment to check your teeth and discuss teeth whitening goals and options. If whitening is suitable for you, the impressions may be done in the same appointment.
  2. Impressions to make your custom trays.
  3. Teeth whitening treatment. Usually this takes around 90 minutes for the procedure. You will be given custom whitening trays to take home to apply relief gel in case of sensitivity and a lower concentration of whitening gel for spot or top-up treatment.
  4. Review whitening results (2 weeks later)
Take-home teeth whitening kit

For take-home whitening treatment we offer the White Dental Beauty Teeth Whitening System with NOVON technology. You will receive a custom-made whitening tray that fits over your teeth and the required number of whitening gel syringes prescribed with a concentration of Carbamide or Hydrogen Peroxide most suited for your level of tooth discolouration.

You will need to apply a small drop of gel inside each tooth well in each of the trays, place the tray on your teeth, then relax over the next few hours – read, talk, watch TV, surf the internet – while the whitening gel does its job. After your whitening session, remove and rinse your trays, and then brush your teeth. Repeat this over the next week or two until you achieve the level of whitening you desire. The snug fit of your custom-made tray and the dentist-quality whitening gel provides you with an amazing result.

Typical appointment overview:

  1. Pre-whitening appointment to check your teeth and discuss whitening goals and options
  2. Impressions to make your custom trays
