Teeth whitening is a simple and non-invasive cosmetic dental procedure used to improve the aesthetics of the teeth. The teeth are covered by a porous layer of enamel, which could retain many coloring particles from food, beverages, tobacco, etc. Over time, this significantly affects the color of the teeth, making them appear dull and discolored. This can be reversed using our customized teeth whitening techniques.
What is zoom whitening?
Zoom is a breakthrough technique in teeth whitening. It uses a laser of the right intensity to activate the whitening gel after applying it to the teeth’ surface.
The whitening gel used in this procedure contains 25% hydrogen peroxide, making it highly effective. With the addition of the activating laser, the whitening procedure can be completed in a matter of a few minutes while providing impressive results.
Whitening using opalescence
Opalescence uses a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide and potassium nitrate. The procedure may or may not involve the use of activating light, depending on the severity of the staining. The dentist carefully applies the whitening gel on the teeth and leaves it for 15 minutes before suctioning it off. The procedure would be repeated multiple times to get a better level of whitening.
Convenient whitening with take-home kits
You may have heard about teeth whitening being performed at home by the patients themselves. This can be carried out with our customized teeth whitening kits. When you visit our dental practice, we will take highly-precise digital impressions of the teeth and use them to fabricate whitening trays from dental-grade plastic. They will be provided along with a prescription whitening gel, and the dentist will take you through their usage. You can use it in the comfort of your home to get a whiter smile.
