What is Teeth Whitening?

All those cigarettes, cups of coffee and tea may have resulted in your teeth not being as pearly white as you might have hoped for. That’s what teeth whitening is for, it is a bleaching process that removes those stains on your teeth and brightens them up. Improving your smile and allowing your teeth to shine.

Teeth whitening works through a bleaching process on your teeth. The chemical agent penetrates the enamel and reaches the stain molecules in your teeth, removing them.
Oxygen particles in the whitening agent will break apart the discoloured molecules and break the bonds that hold them in place.

Introducing Zoom Whitening?

Zoom whitening is a new system that has revolutionized the teeth whitening game. Using proprietary technology Zoom whitening and brighten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in only an hour.
Compared to wearing trays or strips this is the perfect alternative for the busy person who still needs a bright white smile.
The process to get Zoom Whitening done is very easy and will take only an hour for brighter teeth.
How it works is your dentist, after separating your lips from your teeth they will apply the Zoom whitening gel to your teeth, which uses hydrogen peroxide.
The dentist will then apply a low heat light that penetrates your tooth enamel which allows more oxygen to react with the stains whitening them even faster.
This 20-minute process will be repeated 3 more times by your dentist, making this only a one hour process.
This treatment is finished with a 10-minute fluoride treatment.

Teeth whitening trays from both the dentist and from the pharmacy are effective at whitening your teeth. They are typically peroxide-based, but at much lower amounts and may take several weeks for real results to appear.

How long teeth whitening will last depends on several factors such as your diet, consumption of coffee, tea, wine, and other foods and drinks that would stain your teeth.

Teeth whitening is considered to be perfectly safe, but it is recommended you consult with your dentist before purchasing a home whitening kit or booking an appointment.

If you have weak, sensitive, or brittle teeth then the hydrogen peroxide in higher doses may make those problems worsen.

Yes, teeth whitening strips do work for removing surface stains on your teeth. However, the effects will not be as pronounced or visible as other methods of whitening.

Yes, your yellowed teeth can become whiter. Some genetic causes can prevent the whitening of teeth. It is recommended you consult with your dentist to find out more information if you believe this may be the case.

Yes, teeth whitening kits are effective at removing surface stains from your teeth. They may take up to 2 weeks to show results.

Most foods are good to eat after teeth whitening. The are several foods and drink you should avoid after teeth whitening:

  • Coffee, tea
  • Red wine
  • Foods with colour additives
  • Beets
  • Berries

Most teeth whitening procedures will wear with time and might require touch-ups once every 4-6 months. It will depend on how you treat your teeth and the diet you uphold.

Teeth whitening with dental trays, and strips will take about 2 weeks to show results. However, Zoom whitening is a process that can be completed in 1 hour.

Bleaching teeth isn’t bad per se, it can improve the quality of your smile and instill a feeling of confidence in yourself. But long-term use of whitening agents can weaken the enamel in your teeth which can accelerate tooth decay.

Teeth whitening works by applying a chemical whitening agent, primarily made with hydrogen peroxide. The agent will penetrate the enamel, allowing oxygen molecules to react with the stain molecules and break them down.

It is strongly recommended that you do not drink tea, coffee, or wine while bleaching your teeth. These are substances that are known to stain your teeth and consuming them while bleaching may render the process pointless.
