Zoom Teeth Whitening
Even with regular brushing and flossing, teeth can become gradually darker and for some people this darkening effect can occur more rapidly. Teeth can regain a brighter and whiter appearance by undergoing a process called teeth whitening. Teeth whitening under the supervision of a dentist is safe. Many dentists consider teeth whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available.
At Bona-Fide Dental, we offer Zoom and home whitening options. Zoom is an in-clinic instant whitening procedure that is one of the most effective in the dental industry. It uses a strong tooth whitening solution together with a specialised safe ultraviolet lamp to lighten discoloured teeth. The presence of plaque and calculus during the whitening procedure can cause less than optimal results. We therefore recommend professional teeth cleaning prior to a Zoom whitening session. A complete teeth whitening procedure takes about 1 1/2 hour in our practice. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend maintaining good oral hygiene practices including brushing twice daily and flossing, professional dental check-up and clean every six months, and regular touch-ups every 12-18 months with a “home whitening tray” and teeth whitening agent.
We do not recommend Zoom for children under 16 years of age and pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding. If you are taking any medications that increase sensitivity to sun rays, you should consult your doctor before undergoing Zoom treatment. If you have any artificial teeth, crowns (caps), veneers and existing dental fillings in the smile line you will more than likely experience uneven results as only the natural teeth surface will whiten. Teeth with multiple colourations, bands, splotches or spot such as Tetracycline staining or Fluorosis do not whiten as well and in these cases alternative cosmetic treatment options are available.
Please consult our dentists to determine if Zoom is suitable for you. Our dentists will carry out a thorough oral examination, including a shade assessment and recommend the best option/s available for you to achieve your dream smile.
