Teeth Whitening

Teeth can appear duller for a number of reasons, such as diet, ageing, certain medications, smoking and trauma.

Teeth whitening is a gentle process used to eliminate discolouration and lighten teeth, giving you a noticeably brighter and more youthful looking smile.

Zoom! Tooth Whitening

Also known as ‘in-practice’ or ‘power’ whitening, Zoom! whitening uses LED light activated technology to lighten teeth more rapidly than home whitening. Teeth can appear dull for a number of reasons, including staining from smoking, drinking coffee and red wine. In-practice whitening can noticeably lighten teeth and is a convenient option if you are busy, as it can be undertaken in under two hours.

Why go for Zoom! Tooth whitening?

  • Quick
  • Safe
  • Noticeable results

Treatment steps

  • The gums and lips are protected and the lightening gel is applied to the teeth.
  • A special light is used to activate the gel and speed up the process.
  • At each stage, the gel is removed and the teeth cleaned so whitening can be carefully monitored.

Combination whitening uses both home whitening (with tailor-made mouth trays and gel) and an in-surgery procedure.

Aftercare

Help maintain your whiter teeth by avoiding food and drink that may stain and staying on top of your oral hygiene.

Home whitening

Dentist supervised home whitening offers a safer, more effective alternative to shop bought kits as the mouth trays are designed to fit you comfortably and securely, allowing the active gel to work more effectively. It can also be carried out at times to suit you, in the comfort of your own home.

Why choose home kits?

  • Effective
  • Convenient
  • Safe

Treatment steps

  • Impressions are taken of your teeth so customised whitening trays can be produced.
  • When ready, you will wear these at home with a whitening gel for a specified length of time each day.
  • After wearing the trays for a few weeks, you will attend a follow-up appointment to check your teeth have reached the desired shade.

Although this treatment is carried out at home, your dentist or dental therapist will keep a close eye on your teeth to lessen any gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.

Please note, teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and will not be effective on restorations such as crowns, veneers or dentures.
