There are a range of factors causing our teeth to become discoloured as we age; certain foods, years of drinking tea, coffee or red wine, smoking or poor dental hygiene. At Creative Dental Haus you can trust us to put the sparkle back in your smile!
Whether you are after that bright white smile for a special event or simply need a confidence boost, teeth whitening is extremely popular right now. However, with so many products available it can be confusing which one to choose – there are many over the counter products, such as toothpaste or whitening strips. Unfortunately, some of these products can carry side effects and create damage to otherwise healthy gums and teeth. With varying degrees of success of over the counter products teeth whitening is best left to the professionals. At Creative Dental Haus we offer a variety of treatments; professional take home whitening kits or in-chair laser teeth whitening, using the latest most up to date Philips Zoom! Teeth Whitening – the world’s best and most trusted teeth whitening procedure.

Philips Zoom! Whitening: What is Zoom Whitening and what to expect during your 1-hour treatment?
The Zoom® Teeth Whitening method is safe, easy and comfortable. First, we check to see whether you’re a candidate for the teeth whitening process. A dental consultation is necessary, and if we detect any severe issues, we will need to attend to them before we can whiten your teeth.
After your initial check-up and clean at Creative Dental Haus, we will ask you to brush your teeth with Sensodyne toothpaste for one week prior to your laser whitening procedure. The toothpaste will help take away some sensitivity associated with in-chair teeth whitening.
When you arrive at your whitening appointment we will turn on your favourite NETFLIX show so you can be relaxed during your treatment. First we will carefully coat the gums and soft tissues with a block-out resin for protection. We then apply a layer of the ZOOM! Whitening hydrogen peroxide gel solution to the front of the teeth. The solution will be left on the teeth at 15-minute intervals while a blue light will be applied to activate the gel. Finally, the gel is washed away.
Usually after four intervals of 15 minutes your teeth will have whitened six to eight levels on the shade guide!
Before you go home we will apply a desensitising gel to your teeth and provide you with post operative instructions. To relieve any short-term sensitivity we recommend you brush your teeth with Sensodyne toothpaste.Your teeth will continue to lighten for 2-3 days following the procedure.

Take home Whitening kits
While we are sure patients will enjoy spending time in our tranquil, relaxing clinic environment, some people prefer to undertake this treatment in the comfort of their own homes. In this case we can provide take home kits for easy and convenient application.
This is how you would typically bleach your teeth at home using your custom home kit:
- Brush your teeth using the recommended sensitivity toothpaste and floss
- Apply a small amount of bleach into each tooth of the bleaching tray
- Gently fit the tray over your teeth and wipe away any excess gel that extrudes out of the tray
- Leave it on for 15-30 minutes, depending on the percentage of bleach you have
- Remove tray, rinse away all gel and clean your bleaching tray
- Repeat over a number of days directed by your dentist

Frequently asked questions
There are lots of practices in and around Geelong. You might be asking yourself ‘Why is Creative Dental Haus the right clinic for my family?’ Here are three reasons why we stand out:
- Our patients are family; when you become a patient of Creative Dental Haus, you’re not just an appointment time. You’re a real person, with individual needs. We take time to listen and thoroughly understand your dental history, assess your current dental health status, and talk you through the best treatment options for you. Everyone’s journey is different and we apply a personalised and tailor made approach to our dental care.
- Your comfort is important to us; the rooms at our brand new practice are designed to treat patients in a calm and relaxed environment. You can even request to watch your favourite TV show whilst our dentists are working hard on your pearly whites.
- We put your health first: our professional team is highly qualified and experienced, but we strongly believe it is important that our patients be given the option to choose their own dental treatment. Our dentists will provide you with thoroughly considered treatment plans and they will respect your right to make decisions based on your individual circumstances and budget. When leaving your appointment, we will make sure you are well informed of all your treatment options and associated costs and that you are able to make healthy choices for your long-term dental health.
Money should not be a reason why you can’t have dental treatment when you need it. Our fees are open, honest and transparent: we understand that dental prices can be expensive and confusing. At Creative Dental Haus you will be given treatment plans with itemized costs explained in detail. We never compromise on quality and ensure that you are given the treatment options available to your situation that suit your budget, lifestyle and long-term dental health. We welcome you to ask any questions about the cost of your treatment.
We only take x-rays when they are necessary. As a general rule it is highly recommended that x-rays are taken every two years to make sure there is no underlying dental decay, infection or gum disease. We use x-rays to diagnose diseases not visible to the naked eye or during a clinical dental examination. Dental conditions often don’t present any symptoms until they are well advanced; dental imaging allows us to diagnose any underlying conditions early to avoid expensive dental treatment in the future.
We understand your concerns regarding x-ray safety. At Creative Dental Haus we use modern, up to date technology; the use of digital x-rays significantly reduces the amounts of exposure to radiation than traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays use very low levels of radiation and provide the highest resolution images available. Despite the advances in x-ray technology we are committed to keeping the amount of radiation you are exposed to at our practice to minimum and will always make sure you and your family are safe.
We definitely do. Children aged between 2-17 may be eligible for up to $1000 of bulk-billed preventative dental treatment every two calendar years under the Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule. This means you don’t have any out of pocket expenses. The vouchers can be used across multiple appointments over the two calendar years and include comprehensive dental examination, scale and polish, x-rays (if needed), fissure sealants, remineralising treatment or other preventative dental treatment.
Yes we do. Health fund rebates can be processed on the day of your appointment. We accept all health funds to assist you with the cost of dental care at our practice. Our HICAPS machine allows us to claim your benefits on the spot so you only pay the gap at the end of your appointment. Prior to your treatment, please check with your healthfund if you are covered under HICAPS.
Payment can be made via Visa, Matercard, American Express or EFTPOS. Cash payments are also accepted.
We are a family practice and welcome all children.
It is recommended that a child see a dentist for the first time at the age of 2. The first appointment will familiarize your child with the environment. We encourage parents to bring their child to our dental surgery at the time of their own appointments as we want the little ones to be familiar with the dentist and the practice and prepared for their own appointment. We take special care of children’s appointments to make sure their experience at the dentist is positive.
Kids will always walk out with a special gift bag and a balloon.
