At Dental Health Care Associates in the Heart of Melbourne CBD, using the world-leading Zoom!® tooth whitening system, your smile can become significantly lighter in one appointment lasting a little over an hour. Zoom!® allows you to safely and effortlessly recapture the captivating white smile you once had or have always wanted. All the while relaxing in one of our comfortable treatment lounges.

Prior to the commencement of any treatment, we will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy. If any problems are diagnosed such as gum disease, tooth decay or cavities, they will need to be treated before your teeth are whitened.

As many people are seeking instant results due to a pressing engagement such as a wedding or other up-coming event, our Zoom!® in-surgery whitening system is a popular choice. In-chair whitening involves the application of the formulated whitening gel to your teeth, which is then exposed to a specially developed blue light for approximately 20 minutes, after which time the gel is reapplied. Depending on the colour of your teeth and the shade you wish to achieve, the whitening gel may be reapplied several times.

The Zoom!® whitening system and gel have undergone extensive testing to ensure they’re completely safe for your teeth and gums. The only effect some patients may experience is mild sensitivity to hot and cold, this will often only last for several hours after the completion of treatment.


At home whitening is a great solution to allow you to safely whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home and at your convenience. You will receive a customised tray for your whitening gel.

For at home tooth whitening, soft whitening trays are fabricated to fit closely over your teeth to ensure close contact of the whitening gel with your teeth.

We will give you specific instructions on the use of the gel, the amount to apply to your trays and how long they should be worn. Your desired shade may take between 10 – 12 days to achieve, although a noticeable improvement should be evident after only a few days. 

Should you experience tooth sensitivity while using the at home treatment, discontinue application for several days. The use of desensitising toothpaste can alleviate the problem of sensitivity. If sensitivity continues, contact our practice immediately.

Some of our patients do prefer the comfort, convenience and privacy of their own home for their whitening treatment as it is more flexible with their busy schedule.
