Tooth whitening is one of the most common and least expensive of the cosmetic dentistry procedures. It is offered by most dentists and aims to combat the natural discolouration of teeth that happens as we get older. Teeth whitening can also be used to treat teeth stained by substances such as coffee, red wine and all forms of tobacco products. Zoom teeth whitening is the very latest in tooth whitening and is more effective than previous forms of tooth whitening.
The effects of tooth whitening differ from patient to patient. Some experience dramatic results after only one treatment whereas other patients may have several treatments with only minimal results. Zoom is at the forefront of a new wave of more effective treatments utilising a special Zoom Advanced Power Lamp which heats and the activates the whitening gel. When stimulated, the gel increases the rate of the whitening process. This aims to reduce treatment time and the amount of treatments that patients will need to achieve white teeth.
Depending on the level of staining, Zoom whitening treatments can reduce the time it takes to achieve white teeth by as much as 50 per cent. Initial treatment should be carried out by a dentist but further treatments can be carried out at home with the aid of specially prepared whitening trays. These should ideally be prepared by a dentist as there are dangers associated with certain home whitening products.
Some patients are unsuitable for the Zoom whitening treatment. Patients who are pregnant or undergoing treatment for cancer are not suitable for Zoom whitening, neither are patients on some medication, so it is always necessary to consult your dentist. Ask a City of Leeds dentist about Zoom whitening and you could achieve the beaming healthy white smile that you’ve always wanted.
