Whether you are looking to brighten your smile for a confidence boost or perhaps preparing for a big event, teeth whitening may be an option worth considering. Professional teeth whitening by a trained dental practitioner is the fastest, safest, and most affordable way of effectively lifting stains and discolouration to achieve a brighter and whiter smile.
We offer take-home whitening options starting at just $349 for custom fitted trays and enough whitening gel for initial treatment as well as maintenance applications.
Our at-home kit contains a set of custom-made teeth whitening trays and effective low-concentration whitening gel. Whitening gel is applied to the trays, which need to be worn consistently for 30 minutes every day for a week or two to achieve the desired result.
You can comfortably whiten your teeth for 30 minutes during the day with our PolaDay System. It offers you the convenience of being able to use it whenever you like for the 7 to 14–day period. We provide you with enough whitening gel for your initial treatment period and a number of maintenance applications. Under our supervision this technique is safe for your teeth and gums.
In-chair whitening options start at $449, with costs slightly differing if a dental scale and clean is also required prior to treatment.
We offer a 90 minutes in chair whitening procedure with our SDI PolaOffice+ whitening system. We have chosen this system over others is because this is proven to be the most efficient, longer lasting and affordable treatment for our patients. This immediately improves the whiteness of your teeth, but some patients choose to maximise and maintain the results by following up with an take-home whitening system.
The main benefit of in-chair teeth whitening is the immediacy of results – a significant change in whiteness is seen within a short period of time.

Teeth Whitening – Simple, Effective & Affordable.
People seek whiter and brighter teeth to improve the aesthetics of their smile. It is a safe, less invasive and more affordable treatment option to reach the whiter teeth result.
Given the different causes of discolouration, it is important to have your dentist/oral health therapist thoroughly assess your dental health to determine whether teeth whitening will be an effective treatment for you.
We have two teeth whitening treatment options available: Take-home teeth whitening and in-chair teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening is becoming an increasingly popular and none invasive cosmetic treatment for patients who just want to improve on the whiteness of their teeth.
Unfortunately, all types of teeth whitening system can cause some degree of sensitivity to your teeth, some more so than others. This sensitivity is reversible, and is related to the concentration of the whitening system, the length of time applied to the tooth, and the dehydration levels produced by the treatment.
At Hornsby Dental, we offer the latest cosmetic dental teeth whitening system: SDI is proud to present their 100% Australian made whitening system PolaOffice 2, which utilises a powerful blue-light and high potency whitening gel.
We do not use laser as our whitening light because researches have found that blue-light can be just as effective in offering an equal whitening effect without excessive dehydration which can be caused by some high-powered laser whitening systems in the market. Excessive dehydration can cause increased sensitivity of your teeth.
This treatment can be repeated up to 2 to 3 times depending on how white you would like to make your teeth. There is a healthy limitation to how white your teeth will become, and we do not advocate for excessive whitening.
Also, there are certain types of discolouration which cannot be improved from standard whitening, such as leaky old fillings. Your consulting dentist and hygienist will be able to advise you on whether professional tooth whitening is suitable for you.
We also provide take-home whitening as a stand alone treatment. Two custom fitted trays are made to snug fit around your teeth where whitening gels are loaded into.
This is an effective and safe alternative to in chair whitening, which can be paced at your own preference. If you feel that your teeth are becoming sensitive, simply take a day or two off to give your teeth a break, and to continue whenever you are ready.
This is more suited to people without a time limit, as this form of whitening needs at least two weeks, and sometimes one to two months before reaching the maximum whiteness level of your teeth.
Stains and discolouration of teeth can have many different causes. Although teeth whitening is effective in most cases, consulting with your dentist or oral health therapist prior to deciding can help guide you towards the best treatment options for you.
At Hornsby Dental, we offer a 90-minute in-chair session utilising SDI’s Pola Office+ Advanced Tooth Whitening System. In conjunction with the whitening gel, a blue light is used to improve whitening results without the addition of excess heat (which often dehydrates teeth, and results in increased sensitivity). If teeth cleaning is required for plaque and calculus removal prior to whitening, your dentist/oral health therapist will begin by doing so, and then carry out 3-4 applications of teeth whitening.
We also offer a take home option that can be used alongside in-chair whitening for improved long-term results or used as a stand-alone option for gradual whitening. Your dentist/oral health therapist will provide custom fitted trays and whitening gel to be used for 30 min/day for 1-2 weeks. Top up gels can be provided after initial treatment for maintenance of whitening results.
Whitening carried out by dental professionals is a very safe and effective way of achieving rapid whitening results. The side-effects listed below are most often mild and temporary, but provided to best manage all expectations.
- Tooth sensitivity:
Any teeth whitening treatments are likely to cause some degree of sensitivity due to the use of concentrated hydrogen peroxide formulations. This sensitivity is reversible and subsides in the days following treatment, however if you are someone with already sensitive teeth, it is not advised that you undergo whitening treatment as it can become quite uncomfortable. Using a sensitivity toothpaste following treatment can reduce this side-effect.
- Unpredictability of results:
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee a certain degree of whitening as each person’s teeth will react differently, however our experienced clinicians will be able to determine your suitability for professional in-chair or at-home whitening. Artificial tooth surfaces (crowns, veneers, fillings) and roots of teeth cannot be whitened and may need to be replaced following whitening to achieve a similar shade match.
- Tooth dehydration:
Immediately following whitening, teeth can display a white, patchy appearance as a result of dehydration (what mostly contributes to sensitivity). This is temporary and within a few hours begins to subside as the tooth rehydrates naturally.
- Gum irritation and burns:
Usually mild and temporary, however precautions are taken to minimise this such as covering the gums during in chair whitening or using custom fitted trays for take-home options. Applying Vitamin E oil in the case of gum burns can minimise irritation.
For longer lasting results, it is best to avoid both acidic and dark coloured foods & drinks especially in the days following treatment. These can include beetroot, berries, tea, coffee, red wine, soft drinks and various fruit juices.
Smoking and other tobacco products can also reduce the effects of whitening, so it advised to limit their use after whitening. Maintaining regular twice daily brushing and daily flossing, as well check-ups and cleans every 6 months will further improve the longevity of your bright and white smile.
