If your smile is no longer as white as it once was, Apple Dental can help. One of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments, teeth whitening is a simple procedure that can improve your smile quickly by brightening your teeth in only an hour.
When you see us here at Apple Dental for a professional teeth whitening treatment, we will ensure it is effective and safe.
After first checking your mouth to ensure this procedure is appropriate, we will carefully customise your whitening treatment, providing you with excellent results while minimising or eliminating possible side-effects such as tooth sensitivity. We offer two forms of teeth whitening, using only the highest quality whitening products.
A brighter, more attractive smile
It’s very common for people to notice that their teeth are no longer as bright and white as they were. This darkening can be caused by consuming tea and coffee, red wine, or some fruit juices; by the harmful effects of smoking; or by taking some medications. You may even have teeth which are naturally darker, or notice the tiny white spots which are an early indication of tooth decay. All these conditions can usually be improved with a little help from teeth whitening procedures at Apple Dental.
We can provide a choice of either instant teeth whitening in our comfortable Lane Cove dental practice, or a customised take home treatment that can whiten your teeth in your own home. Both our teeth whitening procedures are safe and very effective in removing deep teeth stains, using a specially formulated whitening gel to gently enter your teeth and lighten discoloured areas.

Teeth whitening options we offer
We offer two forms of teeth whitening, using only the highest quality whitening products.
Choose One-Hour Teeth Whitening for Quick Results
In as little as an hour, our in-chair treatment will lift deep-seated stains, brightening your teeth by several shades. After protecting your gums and lips, teeth are painted with our professional strength whitening gel which is light-activated to penetrate your teeth more easily. This process may be repeated several times until the desired results are achieved.
Whiten While You Sleep
Alternatively, we can provide a customised home whitening kit consisting of specially made whitening trays that will fit comfortably over your teeth. You simply need to wear the trays for several hours each evening or while asleep. Treatment takes approximately two weeks to complete but you will notice a real difference in just a few days.
If you would like to safely achieve a brighter and whiter smile, contact us to book your consultation.

Customised take home teeth whitening treatment
If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home with a less invasive option, our take-home teeth whitening kit lets you improve your smile using special custom-made trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. You simply put the special whitening gel into the trays, and wear them for 30 minutes twice a day, or the Nite White trays for 4-6 hours (ideally overnight). With just seven to 14 days of daily treatment you can achieve dazzling results – but you may already notice a significant improvement in just a few days.
Both our teeth whitening treatments offer you similar results, with the only difference being the time you need to wait to achieve your desired outcome. For outstanding results we often recommend a combination of both techniques, including around three days with a take-home component, to achieve a rapid and long-lasting effect.
Teeth Whitening Case: 1 visit and 3 applications at home.

Real teeth whitening results in Lane Cove
4x 15-minute in-chair sessions
A female patient came to our practice in Lane Cove for teeth whitening. She struggled with yellow teeth and felt as if it affected her confidence. After 4x 15-minute visits with our Apple Dental team, she was able to achieve the shade of white she had dreamed of – from an A2/A3 shade to lighter than B1! We were able to support her throughout her journey to achieving the look she wanted.
The Apple Dental dentist will carry out a full examination to determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, such as having a clean, decay-free mouth prior to your whitening treatment.
Professional teeth whitening has proven to be a simple and effective way to lift the smiles of many people in the Lane Cove and Chatswood area. You too will be amazed at the difference it can make to your self-confidence!
The active ingredient in our teeth whitening treatments, hydrogen peroxide, is a bleaching agent that penetrates deeply into your teeth, to remove stains and whiten your smile.
Your teeth whitening results will depend on the type of discolouration you have, as well as how you care for your teeth. While your teeth will always be lighter than they were, you may need occasional whitening maintenance every one to two years – particularly if you continue to consume things like tea or coffee, red wine or tobacco.
You may experience tooth hypersensitivity or gum irritation from the concentrated whitening gel. But don’t worry – by following the detailed instructions from our Apple Dental team, most of our patients have no side effects at all.
No – if you currently have teeth restorations including dental crowns or bridges, dentures, or dental veneers, these areas will be unaffected by your treatment. Only your natural teeth will appear lighter thanks to teeth whitening.
