How about over the counter Tooth Whitening and Dental Bleaching system or products?
Most of the whitening products (such as the strips) on the market will either take much longer (3 weeks) to obtain less/similar results and some products such as the whitening toothpastes or gels are just not effective. A lot of the whitening toothpastes are very abrasive and are meant to just get rid of surface stains and not to actually bleach the teeth. In addition due to their abrasiveness they may cause tooth sensitivity in the long run.How long does teeth whitening last?
Teeth whitening usually lasts from one to three years before darkening of the teeth is noticed. Additionally, once your teeth have been initially whitened, typically only "touch ups" are required to maintain the whiteness.GENERAL FACTS ABOUT BLEACHING / TEETH WHITENING
All bleaching systems whiten your teeth, but when bleaching is completed, the color will fade about half a shade. Using the tray method in conjunction with In-Office whitening helps to maintain, stabilize and advance the desired result.
Bleaching can only be performed on clean, healthy teeth and healthy gums.
Bleaching will not whiten existing fillings and crowns. Existing work may need to be changed so as to achieve consistent color.
Bleaching only works on enamel. Teeth which have thin enamel due to chemical or physical abrasion will whiten poorly.
Sensitive teeth are the most commonly reported side effect.

Teeth whitening options in MelbourneIn-office teeth whitening
In-office teeth whitening works by producing a significant color change in your teeth in short amount of time, usally within an hour. The procedure is done at the dentist's office applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth after they have been protected with a special shield. Pro: more effective and longer-term results. Con: teeth feel sensitive for up to two weeksProfessionally Dispensed Take-Home Whitening Kits
These whitening kits are purchased from your doctor for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.Pro: cheaper than a dentist procedure. Con: Procedure takes longerOver the counter whitening
Over the counter teeth whitening kits are store-bought and use a lower concentration gel than both in-office bleachin and take-home kits purchased from your doctor. While they are cheaper, they typically are less effective than methods that can be performed by your dentist because of the low concentration gel. Additionally, over the counter trays are not custom fit for your teeth, which can result in irritation to your gums while wearing the trays.What is the Best teeth whitening option
The most important question people ask is, what treatment is best? Professional teeth whitening treatments performed by the dentist or using an at-home whitener?
In order to answer that question, let's take a closer look at the procedures... Peroxide based teeth whitening is determined by the concentration of peroxide in the whitener and the amount of time the whitener is in contact with the surface of the teeth. So for the teeth to whiten, they need to be exposed to an appropriate teeth whitener for an appropriate amount of time. Hence, in order to get the same degree of lightening, a teeth whitening system may either employ a low concentration whitener for a long period of time (at home teeth whitening products use this method) or a higher concentration whitener for a short period of time (professional teeth whitening treatments performed by dentists use this method). If you are using at-home teeth whitening kit, you have the bleaching materials at home and perform the treatments on your own, unsupervised. An hour of in-office treatment can produce the same results as one or two weeks of at-home tray-based whitening.
In a professional teeth whitening treatment, the whitening effect is seen immediately and is accomplished in just a few appointments (usually one) and usually the treatment costs more than the at-home teeth whitening products. Whitening professional products contain 15-50% hydrogen peroxide. At home products contain 3-10% hydrogen peroxide. This is why professional teeth whitening treatments can bleach teeth much more quickly and effectively.
The teeth whitening system that is best for you can depend on factors such as: the amount of time you have available, your temperament, and how much money you have to spend.
Here are some characteristics of professional and at-home teeth whitening systems.
