The Zoom Chairside Whitening system is a scientifically advanced tooth whitening procedure. It is safe, effective and fast. In only one visit your teeth will become dramatically whiter. Zoom will give you the immediate result and convenience of a single one hour visit, the perfect choice for the busy individual.
Zoom is a light assisted tooth whitening procedure for the use in whitening discoloured teeth. There may be many causes of discoloration, the most common include coffee, tea, smoking and red wine. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause discoloration.
Almost anyone can benefit from tooth whitening, however treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. Yellow staining from aging, tobacco, dark cola, tea, coffee and red wine will achieve the greatest success. Those patients with grey shading from tetracycline or other chemicals may experience a less dramatic change.
Please note that restorations, crowns, veneers will not change colour like the surrounding natural teeth. Our practitioner will discuss the options for these with you at your consultation appointment.
For those patients who would like to do whitening in the comfort of their own home our dental team can produce custom-made whitening trays that will fit perfectly over their natural teeth. Whitening gel approved by the TGA will be given to the patient with special instructions on how long to apply the gel in the custom-made trays over the teeth. The patient has full control over the process.
Tooth whitening can cause sensitivity in some of the patient’s teeth during the process. Using sensitive toothpaste or fluoride can reduce this sensation.
