Teeth Whitening Costs in Australia

Teeth whitening and products has become increasingly popular in Australia. With more and more people looking to get their teeth whitened, the number of whitening options has also been growing. But while plenty of choice is a good thing, it has certainly made picking a teeth whitener an overwhelming process.

Even with the number of teeth whitening options available, scouring the internet to find the specific costs can be quite difficult. Dentists will require you to call or come in for a quote and at-home methods vary significantly between cost and effectiveness. To make it simple, we’ve found out how much different methods of teeth whitening cost in Australia:

Making Your Choice

Compare the cost between home teeth whitening and dentist teeth whitening.

With the stats of Australian whitening methods in front of you, it’s much easier to make an informed choice. However, when it comes to picking a teeth whitening method, cost should be just one of the factors to consider. Effectiveness and safety are definitely along the top priorities that come into play. For example, there’s a high chance the cheapest option won’t be the most effective, or that a dodgy vendor guaranteeing unreal results won’t be the safest.


Referring to the table, we can see over-the-counter and natural teeth whitening methods are the cheapest. However, natural teeth whitening methods like oil pulling and brushing with activated charcoal have not yet been scientifically proven to work. As it’s difficult to guarantee any kind of result with natural methods, their cheap cost doesn’t compare well with effectiveness.

As with over-the-counter options, whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes are great for maintaining top dental hygiene, but they aren’t going to get rid of those deep and discoloured stains.

On the other end of the spectrum, dentist whitening options are certainly effective. But as the most expensive option, you could end up paying thousands for a result you could achieve at a fraction of the price.
