Teeth Whitening Cairns

Are you embarrassed about your dull, stained and/or discoloured teeth?

Do you want whiter teeth?

There are a variety of reasons behind discoloured and stained teeth such as lifestyle factors, chromogenic food and drinks, development problems and natural ageing.

Our dentists are trained to assess whether you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening.

It is important to consider the causes of discoloured teeth before you can effectively alter the colour of your teeth.


Thus, a dentist is the most skilled professional to offer advice surrounding teeth whitening. The dentists at Cairns Precision Dental Group will be able to provide you realistic advice on how to design the radiant smile of your dreams.

How does teeth whitening work?

The outer layer of teeth is called enamel, which has a sponge-like quality with pores that can absorb unwanted stains. Coffee, tea, wine, berries and smoking have active staining properties that can over time cause your teeth to become darker.

These stains often cannot be brushed away with standard toothbrush and toothpastes. For the best results, a dentist can deliver a professional tooth whitening service without damaging your teeth.

Although, tooth sensitivity after whitening is normal, our dentists offer you with professional advice on how best to minimise any discomfort. Standard trays, whitening toothpastes and whitening strips usually only offer minimal improvements, so professional teeth whitening has the best ability to remove unwanted stains. Therefore, in some individuals may require cosmetic fillings, veneers and/or crowns to achieve their desired smile.

Cairns Precision Dentist Offers In-Chair and Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Cairns Precision Dental is proud to offer Philips Zoom in-chair bleaching, which is renowned for its superior teeth whitening and uses light-activated technology to whiten teeth several shades in one visit.

Our dentists will apply a barrier to your mouth, lips and gums and then apply a unique whitening gel, which is activated by a special blue light.

This specialised whitening system provides patients with immediate results in just one appointment.

Alternatively, our dentists can also offer you custom-fitted trays for take-home whitening that will take longer, but can also give you noticeably whiter teeth.

Let our dentists give you the confidence to give you the cosmetic smile you have always wanted.

Our Teeth Whitening Treatment Process

At Cairns Precision Dental Group, our dentists follow a comprehensive treatment process to ensure the best results for your teeth whitening.


Our dentists will first conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, discuss your goals and expectations and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening.


If you’re eligible for teeth whitening, we’ll perform a professional dental clean to remove any plaque and tartar from your teeth. This ensures that the whitening solution can work effectively.


Depending on your preference, our dentists will either proceed with the in-chair Philips Zoom whitening treatment or provide you with custom-fitted trays for take-home whitening.

Post-treatment care

Our dentists will give you instructions on how to maintain your new, brighter smile and manage any tooth sensitivity that may occur.
