Teeth whitening has been an immensely popular service here at Withcott Dental. Patients have reported multiple benefits to have nice, white-looking teeth through feeling more confident in themselves, they are smiling more, it makes them feel good and looks younger. 

There are 2 options available for teeth whitening treatments.

Each option requires a general oral health checkup and clean, get fillings (if required), and we recommend using Sensodyne toothpaste for 3 weeks.

  1. In-Chair Whitening – this is if you are looking for instant and fast results. It lasts for approximately 12 months or more, depending on your food and drink choices/consumption. It brings the appearance of your teeth and shade color 10 years younger! 

Take-Home Kits – whiten your teeth at home through a slower process that is painless and effective.

If you are interested in teeth whitening treatments, please come in for a visit to discuss your requirements or phone our friendly Withcott Dental team on 3185 1713.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) has been introduced by the federal government to make that task a little easier if you receive benefits such as Family Tax Benefit A payments. The CDBS helps you keep your kids’ teeth in great shape by providing you with up to $1000 that you can use over a two calendar year period on a range of dental services including examinations, routine cleaning, fillings, and root canals.

You can call our clinic on 07 3185 1713 to check your child’s eligibility for CDBS.

If you’re a veteran, and a holder of a Gold Card or White Card with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), you are eligible to receive treatment from any dentist registered to provide services through the Medicare Benefits Scheme. At Withcott Dental, we are registered to provide services through DVA programs.

Gold Card holders will usually have all their dental treatments funded, provided the dentist establishes a clinical need for the treatment, while white card holders receive services in line with their recognised conditions. Depending on the types of treatment you need, the dentist will either be able to perform the work immediately and without approval from the DVA, or will need to seek approval from the department before proceeding.

So for instance, procedures like dental examinations, X-rays and temporary crowns can be done without delay, while some surgical work, dental implants and artificial tooth replacements known as dental prostheses will have to wait till the DVA provides approval.

The good news is that many general dental treatments don’t require approval.
