Want to know how you can get your teeth whiter by up to eight shades? Aperture Dental now offer ZOOM! Teeth Whitening which can make your teeth the brightest they have ever been, in only an hour. Made by technology powerhouse Phillips, ZOOM! Whitening is the only in-office whitening lamp which works with a variable intensity that gives you a customised treatment with maximum comfort, and the best results.
It is also designed to minimise sensitivity and to protect your tooth enamel. Supervised by our dentist Dr Erik Fung, the treatment is safe and proven to whiten your teeth up to eight shades! So how long will your teeth stay white following your treatment? First, let’s look at a few important steps along the way.
How do I know if I qualify for ZOOM! Whitening treatment?
There are a few factors to be considered before we can start your treatment and you will need to come into our office for an assessment of your suitability for the procedure. During this assessment, we will look at any existing restorations that you have or are currently undergoing, so as to not compromise them.
We will also check how much dental decay and plaque is present, as well as locating any prosthetics you may have such as dentures, implants, crowns and bridges. The shade of your teeth will also be assessed so we can determine just how much brighter we can get them. Should any of these areas require attention before we can start your treatment, we will have to attend to them in order to give you the best possible results. This is because plaque, decay and calculus all have a significant effect on the effectiveness of any teeth whitening treatment.
What to expect on the day of your ZOOM! Whitening treatment
Firstly, the ZOOM! Teeth Whitening treatment only takes an hour to complete. Secondly, we will ensure that you have your favourite TV show to watch while the treatment takes place. Once you are comfortable we will isolate your teeth with a lip retractor, gauze and a liquid dam all with the intention of protecting the rest of your mouth from the bleaching agents.
After we’ve applied the bleach, the lamp will start to work its magic. What follows is a maximum of four cycles of 15 minutes each. After each 15-minute cycle we will reapply the bleach and start the next one. Should you experience any sensitivity or discomfort you will have a button handy that, when pushed, will stop the treatment immediately. This is unlikely though and when you finish your treatment you will have your photo taken for your ‘before and after’.
How long does my ZOOM! Teeth Whitening result last?
The answer to this question is dependent on quite a few different factors. Any teeth whitening treatment works by reducing the stains on your teeth that are already there, but as we go about out daily routines and consume coloured foods and drinks, discolouration will naturally start to reoccur.
However, if you’re caring for your teeth properly and avoiding leaving heavily pigmented foods which can cause staining on your teeth, you should find your results last you for quite some time. There is also a range of products from Phillips’ ZOOM! Whitening range which you can use in the comfort of your own home to keep your teeth brighter and whiter for longer.
