Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is an aesthetic procedure to improve your confidence and smile. There are many factors that play a role in staining teeth.
This condition can easily be corrected using a teeth-whitening procedure.
There are several on the market but we use the Zoom teeth whitening procedure for fast, safe and long-lasting results.

What is the Zoom teeth whitening procedure?

Zoom whitening is a treatment available only in a dentist’s office because of the specialised equipment required. Your dentist needs to be consulted to fully examine your teeth and general oral health to determine if you will benefit from this procedure.

Why is this treatment important?

Teeth whitening is important when teeth appear to be dull and discoloured. This happens over time due to the following reasons:

  • Beverages we enjoy daily like tea and coffee contain colour pigments called chromogens. These attach to the white enamel of the teeth and over time this enamel becomes discoloured.
  • Nicotine and tar found in tobacco stain the enamel as well. A smoker’s teeth often appear yellow.
  • As a person gets older the hard, white part of the teeth; the enamel, gets thinner showing the yellowish dentin layer below. This is the result of normal wear and tear.
  • Damage to teeth due to trauma causes teeth to become tarnished because the injury causes more of the darker dentin to be laid down under the enamel.
  • Certain medicines like antihistamines and hypertension medicines may have the side effect of tooth darkening. Some antibiotics like tetracyclines cause teeth discolouration in children when they are exposed to it.
  • Stress-related teeth grinding can cause small cracks which can darken.

The procedure

  1. Teeth are cleaned before to ensure the procedure is a success.
  2. A special device is used to cover the lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed.
  3. The Zoom whitening gel is applied to the exposed teeth and the unique Zoom light is applied to the gel on the teeth. These two elements work together to infiltrate the surface of the teeth to break up any stains.
  4. The process takes about 15 minutes during which you can relax and unwind.
  5. A total of 3 cycles, each with a duration of 15 minutes, completes the procedure. The gel is reapplied each time together with the Zoom light.
  6. The total time required in the dentist’s chair is about an hour.
  7. Once the whitening cycles are completed, a fluoride containing gel is applied to the whitened teeth to reduce sensitivity and strengthen the enamel.
  8. To prolong the effects of the Zoom teeth whitening procedure, you will be advised to avoid certain foods and beverages that are known to stain teeth, for the first two days.
  9. Your dentist may also advise you to use certain toothpastes with whitening ingredients for longer-lasting whitening effects.
  10. Enjoy your brighter smile and don't forget to maintain your regular dental check-ups and a good oral hygiene routine to keep your teeth sparkling white!
