Whitening Consultation

If you want to have your teeth whitened, Dr Gaffey recommends scheduling an appointment for a Free Whitening consultation. Patients need to be made fully aware of the benefits and possible side effects of teeth whitening.

Your consultation enables us to advise on the most suitable treatment for the type of whitening results. The effectiveness and final result varies for each person. Teeth whitening in the majority of cases will deliver excellent results which are both astounding and instant! However whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration and will not lighten bonding or tooth-coloured fillings located on your front teeth. After tooth whitening these fillings can stand out in your newly whitened smile. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, like porcelain veneers or dental bonding.

That's why its best to have your teeth evaluated so we can select the best and most effective whitening option for you.

LASER BRITE In-office teeth whitening

Whiter teeth in about one hour. It's that simple. Whether you have naturally yellow teeth, your teeth have become stained due to a hereditary condition, or you just have surface staining resulting from coffee, tea, red wine or cigarette smoking, Laser Brite can help give you the whiter smile you've always wanted. The Laser Brite whitening system is the latest in tooth whitening technology and can whiten your teeth in the time it takes to get a haircut, a manicure or lunch.

Laser Brite offers clients the safety and science of a dentist's office with watching a dvd at home. First you'll have a complimentary consultation to answer all your questions. Our dentist will examine your teeth and gums to ensure that they're healthy and suitable for whitening at that time. If you are interested in moving forward with the treatment an appointment will be scheduled for the whitening experience.
What's involved in the Laser Brite procedure?
  1. While you relax in our cushioned dental chair, your gums and mouth are protected with isolation materials and a "Before" digital picture is taken.

  3. You will be fitted with our video goggles to watch your DVD from home or one from our collection.
  4. After three or four  8-minute applications over a one-hour period, your whitening is completed and your "After" picture is taken.

How does it work?


The LaserBriteTM in-surgery teeth whitening system consists of a gentle Hydrogen Peroxide based whitening gel and a special Xeon-Halogen light source. The Xeon-Halogen light source offers a unique benefit, as it delivers an optimal band width of 350-530nm for the acceleration of photochemical decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide, the main activator in teeth whitening.
A special liquid filled light guide, transmits all the light energy, eliminating all of the heat, making the whitening experience a cool and comfortable procedure.


LaserBrite in-surgery teeth whitening in less than one hour.


The active ingredient in the LaserBrite treatment is Hydrogen Peroxide, which has been safely used in teeth whitening for hundreds of years. Hydrogen Peroxide is recognized as a common and effective ingredient by the dental community. It has also been tested and found safe by university researchers. The LaserBrite treatment has no adverse effect on existing restorations (fillings), and does not soften the enamel tooth structure.
LaserBrite in-surgery teeth whitening can only be performed by qualified dental staff, which further ensures your safety.

Will it hurt ?

The process is normally painless. A very small percentage of people may experience a minor tingle following the procedure. Applying a fluoride gel almost always resolves the sensation.


Unlike some other systems, the LaserBrite whitening system uses a Xeon-Halogen light source with a special liquid light delivery system. This allows the optimum band width of light to be transferred to the tooth surface in order to create a photochemical reaction with the Hydrogen Peroxide. One of the unique features of LaserBrite is that little or no heat is transferred, thus ensuring a safe and comfortable experience.


A comfortable, Hydrogen Peroxide based whitening gel is applied to the teeth by your dentist. The gel is activated by the unique LaserBrite light source. Only three or four, eight-minute applications are required and the entire procedure is complete in less than an hour.
