Zoom Teeth Whitening at St. Leonards Green Dental
When your smile needs a boost, professional teeth whitening is a simple and safe treatment to consider. While whitening is often a prerequisite for other types of cosmetic treatment of a full smile makeover, it’s also great as a stand-alone procedure.
Compared to over-the-counter whitening products, professional treatment is:
- More effective
- Better for deep discolourations
- More affordable to maintain
Same-Day ZOOM Whitening
St. Leonards Green Dental uses Phillips ZOOM! Whitening products. ZOOM! is carefully formulated to provide the best quality outcome in the least amount of time. Your treatment isn’t just fast; it’s also cost-effective.
During your same-day procedure, we’ll gently polish away surface stains and then coat a protective layer over your gums to prevent any irritation. Next, a concentrated whitening gel is brushed onto your visible tooth surfaces and a bright light triggers oxidation to dissolve stain particles. Finally, the gel is rinsed away. We repeat this 15-minute process for another 2-3 times until we’ve achieved the desired results. As soon as your procedure is completed, you’ll have a smile that’s multiple shades brighter than before you started.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is teeth whitening safe and affordable?
Enhancing the appearance of your smile doesn’t have to involve lengthy or expensive procedures. ZOOM! Whitening offers fantastic results, especially if you already have healthy teeth that are fairly straight.
Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?
Before whitening, we’ll need to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. If you have any active cavities or gum disease, those will need to be treated first. For decay towards the front of your mouth, we can place a temporary filling and then change it out with a matched restoration after your whitening appointment.
What about at-home whitening?
If you prefer to whiten your teeth on a more flexible basis, be sure to ask about our professional at-home whitening kits. These customised trays fit your teeth snuggly for even results across your smile.
The Best Time to Whiten Your Teeth
As with other types of cosmetic treatments, teeth whitening is a personal experience that people request for a number of reasons. Perhaps it’s a teenager who feels embarrassed about smiling in photographs or a professional heading into the job interview opportunity of their life.
Before starting any type of restorative or cosmetic procedure affecting the appearance of your smile, we nearly always recommend whitening. Why? Because white restorations can’t be lightened or bleached later on, so they’re matched to your teeth. Starting with a brighter canvas gives us the chance to place whiter-coloured materials from the beginning.
How to Keep Your Smile White
To prolong the effects of your same-day whitening treatment, we recommend:
- Booking a scale and clean every six months
- Using prescribed at-home maintenance kits
- Avoiding tobacco products
- Rinsing your mouth out after meals
- Brushing and flossing thoroughly each day
- Drinking plenty of water
- Limiting dark liquids and foods known for causing stain
