How long does the process take?
Your appointment will be 1.5 hours
How white will my teeth become?
Most people’s teeth whiten by between 2-8 shades. As a general rule, the darker the teeth are to begin with, the greater the change in colour will be. Ultimately, the goal will be to achieve your optimum, natural whiteness.
How long does it last?
This depends primarily on the individual, as certain habits such as smoking, drinking coffee, tea or red wine, and infrequent visits to the dentist for regular cleaning can work against the results. Regular professional care and use of the Zoom Professional Whitening After Care products can help maintain the natural whiteness of your teeth for a couple of years. Some people may prefer to have the Zoom whitening treatment more frequently.
How does it work?
A whitening gel is applied to your teeth and the Zoom light is used to activate the gel. Your teeth's natural whiteness will be restored in about an hour through a completely safe process of oxidation.
Is it safe?
Yes! It will not soften enamel or existing fillings. The primary ingredient (hydrogen peroxide) has been safely used in teeth whitening for over 100 years and is recognized as an effective whitening ingredient by the dental community.
Will it hurt?
The majority of our clients experience no pain or sensitivity. However, a small percentage experience a minor dull ache (An analgesic almost always resolves the feeling). In the event of tooth sensitivity it is best to avoid very hot or very cold drinks for the first 24 hours after the procedure.
How does Zoom compare to home whitening options?
Leading tray systems can achieve similar results, but usually require at least a week of usage. Leading whitening toothpastes achieve an average of 1.5 shades change over an entire month of use.
Will the procedure whiten my existing crowns or veneers?
It will successfully remove stains from crowns, veneers and tooth coloured fillings. However, a whitening treatment in general cannot change the original colour of these restorations.
