Everybody wants a brighter, whiter smile; and professional teeth whitening is the best way to get your teeth to their brilliant best. The result: a brilliant, beautiful smile, all day, every day!
Teeth whitening is a permanent treatment, and is the single most effective way to instantly improve the appearance of your smile and your self-confidence.
Teeth whitening is an accessible cosmetic dentistry option for almost every patient, and is universally safe and effective because rather than mask discolouration, it brings out the natural whiteness in teeth by neutralising pigments and stains.
Don’t be fooled by over the counter products. They have been proven time and time again to be virtually ineffective and appear unnatural. More importantly, they aren’t subjected to the same rigorous safety requirements as professional dental products.
We offer a complete range of whitening treatments to suit all budgets and lifestyles.
how does cosmetic dentistry achieve teeth whitening?
All bleaching methods work around the same, basic principle: depending on the choice of techniques, hydrogen peroxide-based gels of varying concentrations are applied to your teeth, and once activated, penetrate into the tooth structure and neutralise the stains and pigments within. Hydrogen Peroxide is a chemically unstable compound, and breaks down to form free-radicals that attack chromophores (colour molecules) embedded within the tooth structure.
Because hydrogen peroxide is unstable, it can break down prematurely if not handled correctly, making some solutions ineffective…it’s all in the details!
Dr Lazaris offers a range of options for teeth whitening in his Sydney boutique office:
how much does it cost?
At Dr Lazaris’ practice, we offer a range of effective whitening solutions for every occasion and budget, ranging from $200-$900
Our in-office bleaching system is the most popular and effective cosmetic dentistry technique for teeth whitening, and will brighten and whiten your teeth dramatically in a single appointment.
Once your teeth have been properly examined and assessed, protective masking agents are carefully placed to cover the gums and lips.
The active whitening gel is applied for 3 or 4 consecutive 15 minute applications and activated by a cool blue light – and for the duration of your session you will be entertained by a DVD of your choice. The whitening gel penetrates the surface of the tooth and remains active for some hours to achieve optimal and spectacular whitening results.
We also offer a range of take-home tooth whitening dentistry treatments that let you gradually whiten your teeth in your own time. Although not as instantaneous or convenient as in-chair bleaching, the take home kits provide excellent results and are a more cost-effective solution.
Professional tooth whitening is considered a permanent treatment, but subject to lifestyle, including coffee, tea and red wine consumption; the need may arise to top-up your whitening procedure every so often. Dr Lazaris provides these top up procedures at a reduced rate to our patients who wish to keep their smiles looking brighter for life.

what about sensitivity?
Not all whitening systems are the same. Sure, they can make your teeth whiter, but many whitening systems can cause transient sensitivity that can range from mild tingling to sharp, short bursts. This is primarily because many whitening solutions literally suck the moisture from the tooth. Dr Lazaris has thoroughly researched all available products and protocols and has selected whitening treatments that are aqueous in nature, minimising the risk of sensitivity for his patients. rest assured that even if you do experience sensitivity, we have solutions on hand to alleviate it.
