The Zoom Teeth Whitening Treatment
at Smile Dental Clinics, we offer a Zoom teeth whitening. Teeth Whitening works by exfoliating stains from inside your teeth to bring them back to their natural color. Zoom teeth whitening is a special process that uses a 25% hydrogen peroxide gel, the gel is activated via a special UV light.
Teeth Whitening Results Cannot be Predicted
We will measure your initial shade, and the final shade to see how many shades lighter you got. But there’s no way to predict how many shades lighter your teeth will get beforehand. The whitening process removes stains that we all accumulate over the years from coffee, tea, juice, soda, fruits and berries, sauces, salads etc… The final shade is your natural tooth color, which is unique for everyone. The procedure consists of three 15-minute sessions. A fresh layer of whitening gel is applied after each session as the old gel is removed from your teeth.
Results are Instantaneous
You will see results immediately after the zoom whitening procedure. We’ll be able to take your new tooth shade and measure how much lighter the teeth have gotten. However, the teeth immediately after the whitening are dehydrated, as they’ve lost moisture. There is a bit of a rebound as the teeth regain their moisture over the next several days. This is also why we recommend not to choose the shade for any dental work that same day. If we plan to proceed with any cosmetic work such as veneers or crowns are generally wait a week before picking a shade.
Crowns, Veneers and Bonding Won’t Change Color
Any previous dental work does not change color. Crowns and veneers are made of porcelain, the shade of which cannot be changed. A dental bonding is filling, the color of which is also picked before they’re placed, thus they cannot be lightened.
That doesn’t mean that you should not do whitening if you have a crown, veneer, or a filling on a front tooth. Often the color of the restorative work is actually lighter than the rest of the teeth. Over the years the natural teeth may have gotten stained or the shade was never matched perfectly in the first place. You have the option to look in the mirror after each session to decide when it’s time to stop the whitening. If you’re unsatisfied with your current bonding, veneer or crown you should also consider replacing them as an option. A dentist will consult with you before starting the treatment to answer all of your concerns and discuss possible options
