Treatments To Whiten Your Teeth

For a smile you can be confident about!

Improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence.

Whitening is restoring shine and lustre to teeth affected by staining agents in food, beverages, and tobacco. It removes the stains and discolouration on teeth, as well as lighten pigmentation within tooth enamel

OVER-THE-COUNTER VS. PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING

There is numerous  teeth whitening products available over-the-counter, from toothpastes to strips. The active bleaching ingredients in these products does not compare to the professional-strength teeth whitening we offer at our practice.

The proprietary Zoom activating light upon the hydrogen peroxide-based gel creates a reaction that deeply penetrates the teeth and can whiten teeth up to eight shades. This gel used for Zoom treaments is stronger than products found in a store.

When you are ready to get serious about your teeth whitening – In-chair  Zoom treatments are the best way to achieve your goals.

HOW LONG DO TEETH WHITENING RESULTS LAST?

Your results depend entirely on how you care for your teeth after treatment. For example, to keep teeth white and bright, it makes sense to reduce  staining beverages and foods when you can. You can help prevent stains from forming by rinsing your mouth or brushing soon after  drinking coffee, or having a glass of red wine etc.

Of course smoking is another habit that can create tooth discoloration, so you may want to consider quitting, cutting back, or using non-staining nicotine-based products instead.

Also, make sure to keep up with your dental hygiene and professional cleaning. If you notice you need a whitening touch-up, Dr. Sally may be able to provide you with professional at-home whitening gel and custom trays to use as-needed.

WHAT IS ZOOM® TEETH WHITENING PROCEDURE ?

During the consultation process, Dr Sally and her team will discuss your teeth whitening or cosmetic dentistry goals and advise if you are a good candidate for Zoom® treatment. It’s not right for everyone  and we can discuss alternative options if need be.

The Zoom procedure begins by sealing all the soft tissue of the mouth, and then coating teeth in a professional-grade whitening gel. This gel is then activated by a special light that encourages oxygen to enter the dentin and enamel, bleaching out stains and discoloration. The entire chair-side procedure can usually be completed within just 90 minutes and then you can immediately return to your normal daily life with no downtime, and you can enjoy a whiter, brighter smile.

Home whitening kits

With our take-home whitening kit you can transform your smile in the comfort of your own home.  Using custom-made bleaching trays, you apply the bleach for 30 minutes a day for around 5 days.

Did you know that teeth can stain from the inside out?

These are called intrinsic stains. If your teeth are stained from inside, then no amount of teeth whitening is really going to help. At your initial visit your dentist will determine the cause of the discolouration and prescribe the best course of action.

If teeth whitening is the best treatment for you, we offer both in-office whitening and take-home whitening

HOW IS TOOTH SENSITIVITY MANAGED DURING TEETH WHITENING TREATMENT?

Prior to Zoom treatment you can use toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth to help prevent any discomfort during treatment. The active ingredients in these toothpastes work by filling naturally-occurring microscopic holes in the tooth’s surface, which cause sensitivity.

In addition at the beginning of your treatment a protective barrier is placed on the gums to prevent any irritation of the soft tissue; however, this usually does not protect against tooth sensitivity.

Should you have difficulty tolerating your Zoom treatment, Dr Sally can advise of alternative options.
