Best Teeth Whitening Melbourne – The Top 5 - Dental Guide Australia

Teeth Whitening Melbourne – 5 Great Options

Sign of Melbourne.

Melbourne - the culture capital of Australia (although don’t tell Sydney). With intricate laneways that hide a virtually infinite selection of bars and cafe’s, Melbourne rightly enjoys its fair share of coffee, red wine, and amazing restaurants.

While we’re not suggesting that Melbournites have dirtier teeth than residents of any other Australian city; coffee, wine, and most delicious foods top of the list of things that cause our teeth to become stained.

Many Melbourne residents are refreshing their smiles and whitening their teeth with professional teeth whitening. There’s a lot of healthy competition within the professional teeth whitening industry, but how do you know who to choose, let alone where to begin looking?

We’ve done the research for you, and compiled our list of the Top Five Professional Teeth Whitening Providers in Melbourne. However, before you make your mind, you must read our list of considerations. Factor these into your decision making and make an informed choice.​

Considerations Before Choosing a Teeth Whitening Dentist in Melbourne:

There’s more to choosing a professional teeth whitening provider than finding the best price. Keep reading to know what to look for. Help yourself to decide which factors you should be looking for and weighing up when choosing a professional teeth whitening service.

​Location

Whitening your teeth is all about looking good and feeling great. So with so much on offer, don’t go out of your way for no good reason.

Choose somewhere that’s near to your home or your workplace. Make sure you can get there easily either via public transport or car, and if you are driving, check if there’s parking.

Method of Whitening

If you’ve done your research, you’ll know there’s more than one way to achieve a pair of pearly whites.

Each professional teeth whitening procedure has its pro’s and con’s. And some methods are more suited to some people than other methods. Therefore, if your dentist isn’t the one doing the whitening, you must still consult with your dentist prior to any whitening procedure.

Price of Each Treatment:

With different ways of doing the same thing, and the same thing being done by different people, the cost of professional teeth whitening can range anywhere from one hundred dollars up to one thousand dollars.

Experience teaches us that the cheapest is not necessarily the best.

Extras 

If you’re serious about keeping your new, bright and white smile looking great for as long as possible, you’ll want to ask if there are any included extras such as a take-home whitening kit designed to complement your professional whitening experience.

These extras can easily represent $100, usually more, in added value, so bear this in mind when considering the price.

Your Expectations

What do you want from your professional teeth whitening procedure? Let’s go out on a limb and presume you want whiter teeth - How much whiter do you actually want, or expect to go?

​Keep your expectations realistic. Your teeth can only go so white, and different people will have different limits to their maximum potential whiteness.

If you’re expecting just to freshen up a little bit and remove some of the lighter staining, one of the cheaper options may be appropriate. But if you’re expecting the brightest, Hollywood smile available, you’re going to be limited to one of the most expensive options.

5. Smile Bar

This will be the first thing that comes to mind for a lot of people when they think “professional teeth whitening”. Smile bar has established themselves in five Australian cities, and show no signs of slowing down.

With two prime locations in Melbourne, once you realise how much cheaper Smile Bar are than many of the alternatives, you’ll find it hard to pass them by.

Smile Bar claim to use a “peroxide-free” bleaching agent. However, they do not go into detail about what their product actually contains and how this product whitens your teeth. Therefore, we are unable to verify your claims.

Smile bar receives mixed reviews from individuals who have received mixed results. If you are unable to afford one of the more expensive treatments, and you are willing to have an unknown whitening agent applied to your teeth, then it’s worthwhile considering Smile Bar.​

Methods of Teeth Whitening Available: There are four packages on offer at smile bar, each which claim to use their “peroxide free” whitening gel, in combination with LED light-assisted technology.

Phone: (03) 9999 9703


2. Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre

You might be surprised by the fact that the Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre do not use Zoom. They instead use a lesser known system called LaserBrite.

LaserBrite isn’t as popular as some of the other systems, therefore we can’t find much information or many customer reviews for LaserBrite.

However, the team at Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre are an experienced group of professional dentists and dental hygienists. If they are willing to stake their reputation on the LaserBrite system, it is likely that great results can be expected.​

Location: Caulfield

Onsite Parking: Yes

Methods of Teeth Whitening: LaserBrite is the preferred professional teeth whitening system that the team at the Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Centre use and trust.

According to the LaserBrite website, the bleaching agent that is used is very similar to the other products used by professionals. However, they claim that their special “xenon-halogen light source” has advantages over the other lights used in professional whitening systems.

It’s the wavelength of the light, measured in nanometres (nm), that determines the light sources strength (and colour). There is conflicting information as to which light source provides the best results, or even if light provides any benefit at all. We don’t take sides here, and we’ll leave it up to the independent scientific studies to come out to settle this debate.

In the meantime, if you’re willing to give something else a try, or if you’ve had unsatisfactory results from other professional treatments (although this is unlikely), it might be worthwhile trying LaserBrite.​

Cost: $450

Phone: (03) 9500 2084
