When people are asked what they would like to change about their appearance, most say their teeth. The good news is that one of the most dramatically effective cosmetic dental treatments is also one of the quickest and most comfortable – teeth whitening.
Stonemount Dental Practice uses leading whitening brand Zoom, which in our years of experience has been effective in achieving the desired bright shades our patients want. Zoom is also extremely safe and gentle, causing no or little discomfort. So if you would like a dazzling smile for your wedding day, an important job interview or a special holiday, come and see us.
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums.
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist is your best resource to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips Zoom at-home whitening products have two mild desensitizing agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimize tooth sensitivity.
Other whitening products are not customised to your needs. With Philips Zoom, the whitening process is tailored to your needs by your dentist, with custom-fitted trays for at-home treatments or just the right light intensity and duration in the dentist’s office.
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks or just through natural aging, your teeth may eventually become discoloured again. Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discolouration. Only Philips Zoom at-home whitening products include ACP, which has been shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
There are many causes to tooth discolouration. Some of the most common include the consumption highly colored foods and drinks (berries, coffee, tea, red wine). Some medications, aging, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth discoloration.
With Zoom at-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve the same great results in one-two weeks, depending on concentration of formulation and wear time you select.
