Teeth whitening is a treatment that uses bleaching products to lighten the colour of your teeth. It can also create a whiter appearance for your entire smile.
Over the years, it is normal for your teeth to discolour and stain. Everyday activities such as dietary and social habits can have a significant effect on the colour of teeth.
Foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, berries, and wine can lead to tooth discolouration. Smoking and certain medications can also affect the colour of your teeth.
Our Coastal Dental Care practices offer Philips Zoom! in-chair teeth whitening. This treatment has been proven to whiten teeth up by up to eight shades.
The treatment process is quite straightforward. A high strength whitening (hydrogen peroxide) gel is applied to the teeth and broken down by a LED heat lamp. This allows oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin to remove stains or discolouration without damaging teeth. In general, you can expect treatment to take between 60 minutes to 1.5 hours.
Our practices offer Zoom whitening for $495, which includes a take-home whitening kit with custom-made trays. If you require a scale and clean prior to the whitening treatment, additional charges will be incurred.
If you prefer to whiten your teeth at home, ask our friendly staff members for a take-home whitening kit.
Take-home whitening kits from the dentist contain a higher percentage of bleach than over-the-counter products. For this reason, they can achieve similar results to in-chair whitening.
However, these results can take up to two weeks to show, compared to a single session with in-chair alternatives.
