Teeth Whitening

Teeth WhiteningRegardless of how well you care for your teeth, it is inevitable that, over time, some yellowing or discoloration will occur. This gradual change can be caused by aging, substances that stain your teeth (such as coffee and tobacco), excessive fluoride, or the deterioration of a tooth’s nerve. A tooth whitening treatment can be performed either as an at-home, dentist-supervised process or in the dentist’s chair. While neither of these methods stops future discoloration, these treatments bring about whiter teeth and help create a more vibrant smile.

Zoom 2 Laser Teeth Whitening

Laser teeth whitening is performed at the dentist’s office. This treatment involves coating the teeth with a paste-like form of peroxide gel after protecting the soft-tissues with a temporary wipe-off barrier. When the laser is applied to this paste, the tooth’s enamel takes on a whiter appearance. This technique lasts approximately one hour in the dentist’s chair.

HOW ZO0M2 LIGHT ACTIVATION TECHNOLOGY WORKS

  • The property Zoom2 gel works due to the “photo-fenton” reaction of peroxide H2O2 and iron Fe3
  • The peroxide reacts with the iron to produce hydroxyl radicals – “stain terminators”
  • The peroxide reacts with the iron to produce hydroxyl radicals – “stain terminators”
  • A light reaction cyclically renews the iron so it can continue to produce hydroxyl radicals – more effectively whitening teeth

At-home Whitening

A popular method of whitening teeth is the at-home, dentist-supervised option. During your visit to the dentist, he or she takes a mold of your teeth and creates a comfortable, customized mouthtray. The mouthtray holds a mild solution whose main ingredient is carbamide peroxide, a substance that reacts with water to release a non-toxic bleaching element (hydrogen peroxide). The mouthtray is placed inside the mouth, and sits only against the teeth, thereby avoiding contact with the gums. Patients can choose either to wear the mouthtray throughout the night or for stretches that last from two to four hours. When the mouthtray is worn throughout the night, the treatment lasts one to two weeks. Patients with more sensitive teeth may opt for the latter approach, which lasts three to five weeks. We use the latest Enlighten Teeth Whitening system.

Patient Concerns

 Whitening treatments begin to fade in one to four years depending on the original appearance of the teeth, permeability (porosity), method used to treat and habits ie discoloured food / drinks consumed and smoking etc. It should be noted that tooth whitening treatments have no effect on the artificial materials used for bonds, veneers, or crowned teeth.
