Teeth Whitening

We offer two types of the latest ZOOM professional tooth whitening. Both methods are safe and effective. A quick whitening consultation is required first to check your mouth and teeth are suitable for whitening, for best results.

ZOOM in-chair whitening produces fabulous, instant results. We apply whitening gel to your teeth here in our clinic, and activate it with a special lamp. You will see results immediately and walk out with sparkling white teeth!

Custom-made whitening trays are a more gradual and gentle method of tooth whitening. We will make a set of clear trays to fit your teeth, for you to apply a special Zoom bleach gel yourself at home, over a period of several weeks.

We recommend a combination of ZOOM and custom made whitening trays for the best, long-lasting results.

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What is ZOOM Tooth Whitening?

Zoom is a bleaching process that lightens discoloured enamel and dentine. You may have seen the same Zoom process being used on “Extreme Makeover”.

How long does ZOOM Chairside Whitening take?

The complete procedure takes just over an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by 45-60 minutes of whitening time. We recommend a scale and polish with one of our hygienists prior to your whitening session, for best results.

How does ZOOM work?

The active ingredient in the Zoom light-activated whitening gel is hydrogen peroxide. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentine. This bleaches coloured substances, while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth. A study has shown that the Zoom lamp increases the effectiveness of the gel by 26% or more, giving an average improvement of up to eight shades.

What will I experience during the ZOOM procedure?

During the procedure, you can lie back and relax while listening to music. Light sensitivity during the treatment occurs for some people. Our brand new LED Zoom lamp emits minimal heat to reduce this sensitivity. On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced after the procedure, but always dissipate.

How long do the results last?

Everyone’s teeth respond differently and the whitening fades over time. By following simple post whitening care instructions, you can prolong the effects of your whitening procedure. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily, and occasional touch-ups with our optional follow-up kit. Additional to the actual Zoom process, this kit includes a professionally formulated product to keep white teeth looking bright, and moulds which are individually shaped to fit your teeth.
