Beauty Beat: This Week, I Try Teeth Whitening Sydney - Pitt Street Dental Centre


This week, I try… teeth whitening



Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed uses LED light to activate a whitening gel that is applied to the teeth over four 15-minute sessions. First, an impression is taken of my teeth to create bleaching trays for home use, to keep teeth looking whiter longer. A layer of gauze is applied to my gums, along with a tongue barrier, then the gel is applied. The lights are dimmed and the treatment begins. The mouth restraint feels a little odd at the start, but by the end of the first session I’m almost dozing off. After 10 minutes, a beep goes off to break up the time. Before I know it, my sessions are over — the entire treatment taking just 90 minutes.


The advice is to take paracetamol and ibuprofen tablets to reduce any sensitivity. My pain threshold is quite high and I am quietly confident that pain won’t be a problem. I am proved right.


No coloured foods for 48 hours, as teeth are susceptible to staining post-treatment. So steer clear of tomato sauce, berries, coffee, red wine and tea. The list of pale things you can ingest does include “sauvignon blanc”; love it.


My teeth look sparkling and fresh and several shades whiter.


From $550.

I have been going to Dr Cai for almost two years and each time I visit he and the staff are so lovely and professional. I cannot recommend them enough.

Best dentists I have ever been to. I even travelled to Pitt Street Dental when we lived interstate to see them. Very capable, thoughtful and kind dentists and team.
