Teeth Whitening

A large aspect of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. As we enjoy drinks like tea and coffee, red wine, cola, or even foods like beetroot and strong curries, our teeth will yellow slightly. It’s not necessarily a cause to avoid all these foods and drinks, however many people will want to improve the colour of their teeth. Using our very own teeth whitening kits, we can help you achieve whiter teeth and a lovely smile.

Custom, take-home teeth whitening trays

We’ll take digital impressions of your teeth to create a mould for your custom whitening tray. Then, we’ll provide you with your custom tray, the teeth whitening gel, and all the instructions you need to get the most out of it. You’ll receive a shade guide as well, so you can track the progress of your teeth whitening.


Invisalign is the subtle alternative to traditional braces. It straightens your teeth in the same way that traditional braces do but instead of metal wiring, it uses clear, plastic aligners. The aligners are made custom to your teeth and jaw, so they fit over your teeth nice and snugly. Then as your teeth begin to straighten, you’ll change aligners — each set of aligners gets closer to that perfect positioning.

Why Invisalign over braces?

Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces for teenagers and adults who may feel embarrassed about the appearance of the traditional look. These clear aligners are really subtle. Invisalign aligners are removable, so your diet is significantly less restricted — yes, you can still have sushi and popcorn. As well as that, Invisalign is generally far more comfortable and convenient than its traditional counterpart.


In cosmetic dentistry, veneers are used to create a fuller smile. Where teeth may be smaller, leaving gaps in the teeth or shorter, creating an uneven smile, veneers can be placed to create that full smile.

Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns are similar to a veneer, however these place over the entirety of your tooth and rather than just visually filling in your smile, crowns restore strength and structure to your tooth. Tooth bridges are used, usually in conjunction with crowns, to fill in missing teeth. Crowns and bridges work to fill in your teeth and create a fuller smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry Gold Coast: FAQs

Invisalign uses clear aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth. These clear aligners are changed every two to three weeks, as your teeth progress closer to the perfect position. The aligners are fairly similar to a sports mouthguard, in that they’re custom and moulded to your teeth and just slide over them.

The biggest reason people opt for Invisalign over traditional braces is the subtlety. Invisalign isn’t nearly as obvious as traditional braces and so it’s a nice alternative for adults who may feel embarrassed by traditional braces. 

The aligners are far less restrictive too. They’re removable, allowing you to eat basically whatever you like. It makes brushing your teeth much easier, and allows you the option to go without for big meetings or dates — although we do stress that your aligners should stay on your teeth for 20 to 22 hours of the day. 

Invisalign is generally more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces too.

It depends on your current teeth and the complexity of the straightening. A really simple case may be looking at three months while a more complex case may be upwards of 18 months. On average, Invisalign is used for 12 months.

Again, it depends on the complexity of the case. The more complex, the longer you’ll need to wear your Invisalign and so, you’ll require more aligners, consultations, and digital impressions. To give a ballpark estimate, Invisalign will cost somewhere between $6,000 and $9,000. At Be Dental, we do offer payment plans through Open Pay and ZipPay.

Teeth whitening is a gradual process and will obviously depend on how white your teeth are to begin with. Teeth whitening also doesn’t last forever and as you drink and eat those classically staining foods and drink, you’ll need to freshen up the job. However, you should start seeing results after the first treatment.

Again, this depends on how often you’re re-staining your teeth with tea and coffee, red wines, curries, and the like. However if you keep up with regular treatments early on, you should get at least a few months out of the treatment.
