Teeth Whitening FAQ

Who performs the in-chair whitening treatment at MC Dental?

At MC Dental, your experienced dentist administers your whitening treatment. We believe this provides an optimum experience and the highest level of professional care. When comparing prices with other whitening clinics, it may be worth asking who provides the treatment and the level of experience they have.

What kind of whitening technology does MC Dental use for teeth whitening at the dentist?

As with all other areas of dentistry, MC Dental are serious about using proven technology. We also recognise that teeth whitening at the dentist is not a “one size fits all” treatment, which is why we offer different options and packages for teeth whitening.


Why does MC Dental have different packages for teeth whitening at the dentist?

At MC Dental, we offer different packages to best suit the needs of the individual patient. Factors that help match a patient to their most suited package include:

  • The speed at which teeth whitening is desired.
  • Their level of sensitivity and/or gum health.
  • A patient’s interest in maintaining longer-term teeth whitening.
Why does teeth whitening cost vary?

The teeth whitening cost varies due to a number of factors, including:

  • The cost of the kit/active ingredients used in the treatment
  • The time taken by the dentist to administer your treatment
  • The inclusion of teeth whitening maintenance items (if included in your package)
What is the process of teeth whitening and how does teeth whitening work?

The teeth whitening process involves using hydrogen peroxide paste, which is placed on your teeth and rinsing it off several times. The paste creates a chemical reaction in the enamel that breaks down the staining compounds. The result is noticeably whiter teeth from one short treatment. It is not uncommon for a single procedure to lighten teeth by six or seven shades.

What are the professional teeth whitening options available at MC Dental?

At MC Dental, we offer 15-minute complementary teeth whitening consultation with our qualified dentists. During the initial consultation, your dentist will double-check if you’re eligible for teeth whitening. If so, you can get the 60-90 minutes no-fuss teeth whitening experience by our expert Melbourne dentist.

How long does it take for custom-made teeth whitening trays to get made?

Custom-made teeth whitening trays are typically created within one week. Our receptionist will promptly notify you when the trays are ready for collection, then you can start your smile makeover journey!

Why choose SDI Pola teeth whitening take-home kits?


SDI Pola’s formula maintains a neutral pH, ensuring the protection of teeth and gums. This commitment to quality has earned the trust of dentists and patients worldwide.


All the teeth whitening kits are locally made and come in SDI Australia’s original sealed boxes. This guarantees the authenticity and quality of the product.

SDI Pola products have been trusted and used by Miss Universe Australia contestants and state finalists for years. This endorsement further demonstrates the reliability and effectiveness of SDI Pola teeth whitening products.

What are the common causes of teeth discoloration and staining?

Patients often ask about teeth discoloration and staining. Both lifestyle factors and structural tooth faults can contribute to stained teeth, including:

  • Natural aging of teeth
  • Bacterial pigments
  • Staining food and drinks (such as coffee, tea, wine, and food coloring)
  • Tobacco/smoking
  • Certain antibiotics

To prevent further staining of your teeth, it can be effective to cut down on the consumption of these staining substances.

How much is professional in-chair teeth whitening at the dentist?

The cost of in-chair teeth whitening at the dentist may vary depending on the treatment package inclusions. Additionally, your teeth may require a professional dental cleaning prior to the whitening procedure.

At MC Dental, with the aim to ensure the best possible results, we offer packages from $549 to $999 for in-chair treatment. All whitening treatments at all MC Dental Melbourne clinics are performed by qualified dentists.

Is professional teeth whitening by dentist safe?

Teeth whitening, when done properly and under the guidance of dental professionals, is generally safe. At MC Dental, we use a specially formulated hydrogen peroxide paste that breaks down stains without harming the enamel. The result is noticeably whiter teeth, sometimes by up to six or seven shades after just one treatment.

Are there any side effects of teeth whitening?

While teeth whitening treatments are generally considered safe, it’s important to note that temporary tooth sensitivity or gum irritation can occur in some individuals. These side effects are typically mild in nature and tend to resolve on their own. To minimise the likelihood of side effects, it is important to carefully follow the instructions provided by your dentist and/or the product manufacturer. In this way, you can ensure a safer and more effective teeth whitening experience.

What is the difference between in-chair teeth whitening and a take-home teeth whitening kit?

The main difference between in-chair whitening and take-home kits lies in the concentration of the bleaching agent and the duration of the treatment. In-chair teeth whitening utilises higher concentrations of bleaching agents, allowing for quicker and more dramatic results, while take-home teeth whitening kits use lower concentrations and require longer treatment duration to achieve similar outcomes.

It’s important to consult with your dentist to determine which option is most suitable for you, taking into consideration factors such as the severity of tooth discoloration, personal preferences, and any existing dental conditions. Your dentist will be able to provide personalised recommendations and guidance to help you achieve the best possible teeth whitening results.
