Zoom Teeth Whitening
Advanced Power Zoom 3 Teeth Whitening is an in chair procedure which takes approximately an hour in the dental chair to whiten your teeth.
A thorough examination is done by Dr.Priya to be sure that you are the right candidate for teeth whitening. There are certain situations where teeth whitening may not be the best treatment option like hypersensitive teeth, carious teeth etc. The existing restorations are not affected by this procedure.
Every individual's teeth are different and so are the results.
Option of take home kit is also available at our practice. This option gives you more control to whiten your teeth at your own pace and in your own time. This kit can also be used for maintenance after 'in chair' Teeth Whitening procedure.
Each individual's oral health, expectations and possible results are discussed on the consultation appointment.
The home whitening tray system requires the patient to wear a thin soft plastic custom-made whitening tray in the mouth overnight for several weeks. The trays are self loaded with whitening gel which makes the teeth lighter over a two to three week period. Maximum effect is achieved in three to four weeks. Although the process is slower, the patient has more control over how light the teeth become. There is generally less tooth sensitivity with this technique if Tooth Mousse is applied to the teeth for five nights prior to commencing tray whitening.
Teeth Whitening Health Tips
Some people will experience sensitivity after the teeth whitening treatment. This is quite a normal occurrence and generally ceases after 24 hours when the dentine tubes have returned to their normal shape. Most people experience some degree of sensitivity after the procedure.
Not every patient is suitable for teeth whitening. Your dentist can assess your suitability prior to investing in the procedure.
Over time due to lifestyle habits and food/beverage intakes (red wine), the process may need to be redone periodically. The tooth whitening process is safe and we have "top up" kits available.
