There is no jewellery shining brighter than your white smile
We offer two types of whitening systems: one, that can be taken home by our patients, and a chair-side one-hour Zoom whitening treatment at our office.
It is important to note that whitening is achieved by physical diffusion. The whitening gel dissolves food color additives from the enamel prisms and ideally replaces them with fluorine. Thus, it doesn't damage enamel, only cleans it. To ensure fluorine getting into the enamel tissue rather than new molecules of food coloring, during the whitening process it is crucial to avoid any food or drinks that contain coloring substances (e.g.: coffee, tea, red wine… Everything colored).
In both cases, whitening is preceded by a very thorough dental cleaning to remove any tartar or plaque in order to maximize enamel-surface exposed to the whitening gel. Similarly, having pink, healthy gums that are free of inflammation is a prerequisite of the treatment.
Whitening at home
Based on a mold, we make a whitening-film for you. You have to put some whitening gel on every day for two weeks (the length of the interval to leave the film on your teeth varies depending on the strength of the gel, which is determined by the patient's preference). With the whitening gel, we give you a tube of fluorine paste as well. The fluorine paste must be applied immediately after using the whitening gel. This is to ensure that upon extraction, food coloring particles are replaced by fluorine. The process must be repeated daily until the desired shade is accomplished.
The two-week timeframe of teeth whitening at home (including the special diet) can be reduced radically by the Zoom whitening process. With this treatment, a 10-shade increase in brightness can be achieved in less than an hour. The whitening gel and fluorine are applied by our dentist or dental hygienist an the Zoom light acts as a catalizer of the chemical process; altogether, the treatment takes only 3X15 minutes. It is worth a try, the outcome is astonishing!
