Tooth whitening lightens stained or discoloured teeth, restoring them to a natural pearly white.
The Zoom procedure is done in a single visit to the surgery. A strong whitening agent is placed on the teeth in several stages to treat the staining/discolouration. It takes a little over an hour to complete.
We will then give you a custom made tray and a professional whitening solution to use at home for a few days after the treatment in the surgery to help achieve the best possible results.
Once you are happy with the colour of your teeth, we will teach you how to keep them that way FOR LIFE!
What is Zoom! Advanced Power™?
The Zoom! Advanced Power In-Office Whitening System is the newest and most advanced tooth whitening procedure available. It's safe effective and fast, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be up to eight shades whiter. It is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of this compared to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.
The Zoom! Advanced Power Whitening procedure is simple.
It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the Zoom! Advanced Power Whitening Gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure.
- How are the older style take-home systems different from the Zoom! Advanced Power System?
- The main difference between the two systems is that the older style, take-home systems take much, much longer to work. It can take anywhere up to 12 weeks for a patient to achieve results that Zoom! Advanced Power can achieve in a little over an hour.
- Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and Zoom! Advanced Power?
- Yes! Consulting your dental professional is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Plus, over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. Zoom! Advanced Power is clinically proven to whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in just over an hour. Only a dentist can get your teeth this white, this fast.
A note of assurance
Tooth whitening is a well-established procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Hydrogen Peroxide, the active agent in Zoom! has also been safely used for many years in the treatment of gums and other oral soft tissue.
The whitening process is effective on most discoloured teeth. Darker stains, such as those caused by antibiotics, are more difficult to whiten. The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient, and depend on the structure of the teeth.
