Teeth Whitening

Want to Dramatically Improve Your Teeth Colour?

Are you happy with the way your teeth are, except for their colour? Do you smoke or drink lots of caffeine, and hate the stains that make your teeth look yellow and aged? Dr. Michael Tam and his team of experienced dental technicians provide dramatic teeth-whitening treatments to improve your natural smile.

How Does Tooth Whitening Work?

Whitening your teeth is a safe, non-invasive procedure that naturally lifts deep-set stain from the pores of your tooth enamel. This allows your teeth to appear whiter, brighter, and years younger when your treatment is completed. At Smile by Design, we provide 2 types of teeth whitening, depending on your personal needs and expectations: in-office whitening and take-home professional whitening. This allows us to suit your needs and offer the best results, not just one type of method that we think everyone should buy.

In-Office Whitening

In just a single appointment, you can have years of stain removed from your teeth without having to do anything yourself. Your in-office whitening appointment takes less than an hour, and your teeth can be as many as 12 shades whiter once Dr. Tam is finished. At Smile by Design, we also use new technology that amplifies your whitening results while also minimising tooth sensitivity during the treatment, ensuring your comfort throughout the process.

At your in-office whitening appointment, we will apply a prescription formula whitening gel to your teeth, which is then activated by a UV lamp for 15 minutes. The application is repeated 2-3 times depending on your initial results. As soon as we’re finished with the application, you’ll walk out with a beautiful white smile that is sure to turn heads. As a complement to your treatment, we will also send a take-home kit with you to extend and maintain the results of your whitening treatment.

Take-Home Professional Whitening Kits

Take-home whitening kits allow our patients to whiten their teeth dramatically, while also on a budget. While take-home kits don’t provide instant results, they can still remove deep-set, heavy stains from the teeth over the course of 2 weeks, providing almost the same results as our instant in-office whitening. Every Smile by Design patient who selects our take-home whitening will receive a custom-fitted mouth tray to allow for the safe, effective application of extra-strength whitening gel just where they need it (and not anywhere else). This creates a more dramatic effect than any take-home whitening kits that you could buy at a retailer. After your initial whitening, just touch up every few months to extend the appearance of a whiter smile.

What Sets our Team Apart

Dr. Tam and his team of highly trained dental professionals are dedicated to ensuring your comfort and meeting your expectations. We take specific preventive measures to ensure your safety throughout every treatment visit with us. At Smile by Design we use only the highest quality of whitening materials, so that you can rest assured you’ll get the most dramatic results possible.

Why You Should Consider Whitening Your Teeth

People with whiter, beautiful smiles have more self-confidence. Your smile is one of the first impressions that you make on other people, so don’t hold it back! After just a short period of time you can benefit from a naturally whiter smile that could improve your social and professional life, as well as the way you feel about yourself. To find out if you’re a candidate for whitening, or which type of whitening would work best for your needs, call Smile by Design today and schedule a consultation visit with one of our Sydney tooth-whitening professionals.


How much does it cost?

In-office whitening fees are $595 without the UV accelerator lamp, or $850 with the lamp. Our take-home professional whitening kits are $295.

How long do my results last?

Most people find that they like to touch up their whitening every 3-6 months, depending on the normal amount of stain they get on their teeth. Your results will last longer if you refrain from things like coffee, tea, and smoking.

What tooth-whitening options are available?

We provide both take-home whitening kits, and in-office whitening. Take-home whitening kits will lighten your teeth over a period of 10-14 days, while in-office whitening provides instant results.

Are take-home whitening kits as effective as in-office whitening?

The end results of both whitening methods are similar, but take-home whitening takes up to 2 weeks to achieve full results, while in-office whitening will lighten your teeth as much as possible in just one hour.

What about Tetracycline stain?

Tetracycline staining is one of the most difficult stains to remove from the teeth, because it has to do with the way the tooth developed. We recommend in-office whitening, followed by our complementary take-home whitening trays to provide the most successful stain removal.
