Your smile is something people first notice and a healthy bright smile can truly change your life and boost your confidence. We all want whiter, brighter teeth and a beautiful smile is affordable and a goal you can achieve quickly.
Through your everyday lifestyle, smoking, soy sauce, drinking coffee or red wine, and simply ageing, your teeth can stain and discolour. There are many smile-enhancing procedures available to give you the smile of your dreams. Teeth Whitening is just one of them and here at Totally Teeth we can help you decide if teeth whitening is the right choice for you.
Teeth whitening is a popular and affordable choice to whiten discoloured teeth. Be sure to discuss this with your Totally Teeth dentist as they can advise you if your teeth and gums are healthy enough to go through a whitening process.
Please remember, only a Dentist has access to the most powerful professional- strength products for teeth whitening and only they have the expertise to employ the most advanced technology and knowledge to ensure your safety and comfort.
To get your smile back to looking its best, you should choose a whitening treatment that:
• Achieves the longest-lasting results.
• Gives you a natural, white look.
• Is clinically proven to be safe and effective.
• Is recommended by a trained dental professional.
Your teeth can be whitened using a number of different methods. Please do note that Zoom and Take Home Whitening kits are not suitable for everyone and only your Dentist can help you with giving you the safe information needed to make this choice.
The whitening experience you choose will determine the results you can expect and also the time frame to achieve them.
Please note that we do recommend that you have a professional clean before your whitening, to achieve optimum results. Discuss this with our reception staff when you make your appointment.
At Totally Teeth, we offer two options for your whitening treatment.
We offer our take home whitening solution for $199. (Normally $490) This includes the consultation, take home custom fitting trays and tubes of professional whitening gel.
For some, being able to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home is the perfect solution. At Totally Teeth we offer a whitening treatment which allows just that.
We create for you custom-fitted mouthguards that are used as trays in which the whitening gel is placed.
The whitening mouthguards can be worn for up to 30 min a day (or 2 x 15 min) each day. This whitening treatment can take just days to complete with the results gradually changing over that time. Some patients may need up to 2 weeks to achieve their desired result, so ensure that if you are whitening your smile for an event or an occasion that you give yourself enough time.
Each and every patient is different, so please listen to your Dentist and the advice given. Your Dentist can assess your suitability and advise if this option may work for you, and will also advise the time required to use the gels.
This whitening treatment can provide a more instant result, with your teeth being whitened by up to 8 to 15 shades in just over one hour. Zoom whitening is available at both our Southport and our Tugun locations and has been featured on shows such as ABC's hit series Extreme Makeover, The Today Show, Entertainment Tonight, EXTRA, The Tyra Banks Show, Larry King Live and CBS's The Doctors.
The procedure has been perfected through years of dental use, and happens right in your Dentist's chair. This is quite simply the fastest, easiest and most effective teeth whitening solution offered by Phillips Zoom. If you want instant gratification, this is your best choice.
Your gums are carefully protected with a special covering and then a professional strength hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied by your dental professional. A light is used to accelerate the process and is clinically proven safe for tooth enamel as well as skin, gums and other soft tissues. It emits virtually no heat and no harmful UV (ultraviolet) or laser light.
The lamps are uniquely shaped to illuminate and whiten all teeth that are in your smile line (top and bottom) at the same time, ensuring an even, natural and beautiful result.
The Zoom light is used in combination with patented whitening gel, which has been optimised for patient safety and maximum results. Please note, that this may not be suitable for all patients.

1. Smoking is not only bad for your health but it will stain your teeth. There are many reasons to give up smoking, and significantly improving your oral health is only one of them.
2. Limit your intake of red wine, coffee, tea and soy sauce as these are strongly associated with staining and try to reduce the length of time the fluids are in touch with surfaces of your teeth. eg. try using take away coffee cups with a spouted lid or a straw.
3. Regular cleans with your dentist. Having regular visits to Totally Teeth will allow your dentist to remove any calculus build up and polish and clean your teeth thoroughly, reducing the amount of staining on a regular basis and brightening your smile.
