People are attracted to brighter, whiter smiles. Sometimes brushing your teeth and using mouthwash twice a day doesn’t cut it. Foods that we enjoy such as red wine, cranberries, tea, and coffee, can have an impact on the whiteness of our smiles. Our teeth are even susceptible to yellowing through aging. One way you can bring back that pearly white smile is through Zoom Teeth Whitening. We can professionally whiten your teeth for you using our special methods in a safe and effective way.

Zoom Whitening is the fastest and safest way to brighten your smile. You can buy over the counter products to help whiten, but they may not be safe for your teeth. For example, whitening trays can fit poorly over your teeth and causes problems for your gums in the future. They may not be as effective as you hope either.

Before you go have your procedure, we recommend that we conduct a teeth cleaning for you so there is not calculus or plaque covering parts of the teeth. After the cleaning, the entire process takes around 90 minutes. We will prep your gums and widen your mouth with holds to help expose your teeth. After you are comfortable with everything in place, we will apply the whitening gel to your teeth. We will then take a special light and hold it pointed at your teeth for 15 minutes to activate the whitening gel. We repeat this process 3 or 4 times. Afterwards we’ll apply a fluoride paste-gel that will work to reduce any sensitivity you may have.

To keep a bright looking smile after Zoom Whitening, do your best to maintain healthy oral hygiene, and try to avoid foods that stain teeth (like the ones mentioned above). Smoking will also cause yellowing in the teeth! This doesn’t mean that you can’t have your favourite red wine, just try to enjoy it in moderation.

We will often recommend you toothpastes that reduce sensitivity and also help keep your teeth looking white. This all depends on your smile!

If you think that Zoom Teeth Whitening is for you, or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
