Did you know that teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic dentistry procedure today? In just one short visit to our practice, you can get a stunning, brighter smile with no downtime.
We offer a premium whitening service called ZOOM! that gives you brighter teeth in as quickly as one hour.
With ZOOM! Whitening, you can enhance your best accessory without extra dental treatments. All it takes is one visit to our office to complete.
What is ZOOM Professional Teeth Whitening?
ZOOM! Whitening is a state-of-the-art professional whitening system that safely lifts deep stains from your enamel (including natural discoloration).
By having your treatment overseen by a dentist, you can protect your gums and teeth, see brighter results and minimise potential sensitivity.
You can have a brighter, vibrant, healthier-looking smile before the weekend is here. That way you can look your best before a last-minute job interview, important event or trip out of town.
Whitening is an excellent option for our patients considering smile makeovers. If you have healthy and relatively straight teeth, ZOOM! whitening omits the need for additional procedures such as bonding, braces or veneers. It’s the ideal stand-alone smile experience.
What to Expect
When you visit Brentford Dental for a whitening appointment, we will:
- Begin by making sure you’re comfortable and talk about your desired shade.
- Then, we’ll clean your teeth and apply a safe-guard to protect your gums from the whitening gel.
- Next, the gel is applied to your teeth. You’ll then sit with a blue light to activate the gel for roughly 40 minutes.
- After, we’ll remove the gel and you’re free to leave with a beaming smile, of course.
Before you whiten your teeth
If you’re considering a teeth bleaching system, there are a few things to do first. Such as having a dentist make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough to use a whitening product.
Additionally, plan to have your teeth cleaned before your whitening session. Any tartar should be removed and stain polished away prior to applying a bleaching agent. That way the results don’t look splotchy or leave discoloured lines across your smile.
Always use your whitening products as advised. Excessive teeth bleaching can lead to severe sensitivity or soft tissue burns if products are not used properly.
We can even match your restored teeth
If so, talk to our dentist about ZOOM! Whitening before the treatment starts. Since restorations are made of ceramic, they don’t change colour like natural teeth.
It’s best to have your other teeth as white as possible, so that the permanent ceramic tooth can be made to match the rest of your smile!
In one hour you’ll have a beautiful, white smile
ZOOM! Whitening only takes about an hour to complete. We’ll carefully protect your gumlines to prevent any irritation during the process. The whitening agent is applied to each tooth, then activated using a state-of-the-art lighting system. We’ll rinse away and re-apply the gel as needed, until we see the desired results.
As part of your whitening experience, we’ll include a home care kit that allows you to maintain the whiteness you achieve during your ZOOM! session. For best results, consider topping off for a few days after each checkup. People who drink dark liquids like coffee, tea or red wine frequently may need to touch up more frequently. When you run low on gel, just drop by our office to purchase a refill.
If you tend to have sensitive teeth, please let us know ahead of time. We’ll work with you to formulate a whitening plan that brightens your smile without unnecessary irritation.
Are dental procedures better than home procedures?
The whitening procedure that we do at Brentford Dental generally takes about an hour and the results are immediate. After ensuring that the gums are protected, a bleaching agent is applied to the teeth and it does all the work!
Our office also dispenses take-home kits along with a custom-made mouthpiece. These gels are generally used for two weeks in order to obtain the desired results. You can also perform at-home touch-ups to maintain your results.
Are there any side effects to professional teeth whitening?
Some people experience tooth sensitivity after using bleaching agents. This is usually temporary and goes away after completion of the whitening process. Others notice irritation of their gums – especially when the bleaching tray is not custom made and the gums come in contact with the bleaching agent.
Side effects should always be brought to our attention so we can advise you on whether they are typical or not.
Why teeth whitening may not be suitable for you
When it comes to teeth whitening (bleaching), it’s always best to begin in our practice. We can advise you on whether you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. Those people with yellowish teeth typically have better results than those with brownish or grayish hues. Also, whiteners have no effect on tooth-colored composite fillings or teeth that are bonded, so whitening will only make these teeth stand out from the ones that do whiten.
Teeth whitening isn’t also for everyone. If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, taking certain medications or under the age of 18, it’s prohibited. Issues such as gum disease or tooth decay ought to be addressed first, to prevent further complications.
