How long does the treatment take?
Zoom teeth whitening takes one-two hours. We do the treatment at the clinic. (This is not the treatment you take home). If you have not had a dental cleaning in the past month, it is recommended to have it done before your Zoom whitening. Otherwise, the result might not be quite what you are hoping for.
What are my options for Teeth Whitening?
There are several options. to do it at the dentist is what we recommend. There are several factors to keep in mind when undergoing a Teeth Whitening procedure at our Melbourne CBD clinic. Keep your gums, cheeks, and tongue away from the bleaching material is one. This is what we do for you and make sure your soft tissue is safe from the teeth whitening material before we start.
This is what would be hard to manage at home. The second option would be to do the treatment at home. For this, we will make you custom made trays and give you the material to take home. The teeth whitening material for home kits have to be much weaker not to harm your oral health. My recommendation would be 6% Hydrogen Peroxide. It will whiten your teeth you just need to do the treatment for longer (usually two weeks at the time).
What material is used for Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening performed at the dentist uses Hydrogen Peroxide. The percentage of Hydrogen Peroxide determines the effect. Usually at the dental office we use Hydrogen Peroxide 25%-40%.
How long does the Teeth Whitening last?
It really depends on your teeth, genetics and your diet. Smoking, drinking tea, coffee, and red wine all can affect your teeth colours and how long the Zoom whitening lasts.
You should try to avoid drinking coffees as much as possible, but you can have a home kit to help you whiten your teeth every year or so. Or you can come in for a boost of teeth whitening whenever you feel the colour of your teeth is getting darker. The boost would be the same procedure we do for teeth whitening only it would be half an hour treatment just to give your teeth a boost.
Would The procedure harm my teeth?
No. There is absolutely no harm in whitening your teeth. The only side effect of teeth whitening is teeth sensitivity. Teeth sensitivity is caused by the slight acidic nature of Hydrogen Peroxide. That is why at Gorgeous Smiles we apply Fluoride varnish right after every teeth whitening treatment to make sure the sensitivity will be much less and gone in a day or two.
What do I do if I have a front tooth filling?
If you have an old filling on the front tooth in a way that it shows in your smile, the colour difference might show after the teeth whitening. We are not able to whiten fillings. What can be done is to whiten your teeth and wait about 14 days for the colour to settle then we can change the filling to a colour that matched the new teeth colour.
Can I have Zoom Teeth Whitening if I am pregnant?
Unfortunately, no. You cannot have teeth whitening at home or office as long as you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can I eat and drink right after Whitening my teeth?
We usually ask our patients to avoid eating or drinking for an hour, but that is for the Fluoride varnish treatment to be fully absorbed by the teeth. After an hour has passed, you can eat and drink as usual. We would recommend not to have any red wine, coffee, tea, or cigarettes for at least for 48 hours after teeth whitening.
Philips Zoom is proven to whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter and also it is so far safest way of having your teeth whitened. While we all have heard that teeth whitening can harm your teeth by causing sensitivity, Philips Zoom with Relief ACP will protect your teeth enamel and give your teeth a great shine.
How Does It Work?
Through years of experience Philips has come up with the perfect solution to give you the whitest teeth possible in the safest way. Your gums will be protected with special coverage at Gorgeous Smiles right before our dentist starts the treatment. Then the unique whitening gel is placed on your teeth.
Then using the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Whitening LED Accelerator, we would accelerate the whitening action of the gel. The Philips ZOOM LED light at our Melbourne Central Business District dental spa will improve the results by 40%. Compare to a non-LED using system Philips Zoom has clinically proven to whiten your teeth by 8 shades.
What Makes Philips Zoom So special?
Philips Zoom for office or home whitening is clinically proven to reduce sensitivity by utilising ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate) in the gel. Protect your teeth enamel and Improve the shine of your teeth.
