We offer teeth whitening services within our clinic. We use the Zoom whitening technique from the show Extreme Makeover. After placing a liquid rubber dam to protect your gums, a highly concentrated and effective product (hydrogen peroxide 35%) is applied to your teeth and activated with a DEL lamp in four different cycles of 15 minutes each.
The results we obtain exceed by far at-home treatments or treatments sold at your local pharmacy. Indeed these contain much lower concentrations of the active whitening agent, respectively less than 10% and less than 3.5%. Our ZOOM whitening treatment is performed under direct supervision of a dentist since the technique uses a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide. Your dentist will place a liquid dental dam over your gums and soft tissues in order to protect them from the whitening agent that may burn them otherwise.
Please note that a dental exam is very important for your safety before proceeding with teeth whitening. For example a patient with sensitive teeth, it may be advised to delay or not to go ahead with the treatment in order to prevent further sensitivity.
ZOOM whitening treatment results last 3 to 5 years though a few touch ups are necessary to maximize efficiency over the years.
