Say Hello to Whiter Teeth Today
If you’re tired of teeth that look dull and discoloured, you can take advantage of various whitening options that are available at 123 Dental. We provide patients with the choice between ‘Zoom!’ In-Surgery Whitening System and take home professional whitening treatments. Understanding the differences between both can help you make the right decision.
The Zoom! In-Surgery Whitening System
Zoom! is a tooth whitening treatment that has proved to be hugely popular recently. Zoom! functions by lightening both the dentine and tooth enamel. This is an in-chair treatment that can make teeth upwards of eight full shades lighter than before. The process generally takes around one and a half hours to complete.
We start the Zoom! process by protecting your lips and gums. We then put the whitening gel directly on your teeth. A UV light is then used which prompts the gel to react. This lighting deconstructs the formula’s hydrogen peroxide. This enables oxygen to penetrate through the surface of the teeth and promotes teeth whitening.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Take-home teeth whitening is an alternative to treatments such as Zoom! that are completed at our dental practice. If you opt to purchase a take-home whitening kit for your teeth, we will start the process by taking a mould of your teeth. This mould allows us to produce custom fitting trays that are made exclusively for use on your teeth. Patients are also provided with compact syringes that contain bleach. You need to dispense the bleach inside your trays, as directed by your dentist. These trays are then placed on your teeth for the bleach to take effect. Patients are generally instructed to keep these trays in place overnight. After this period, it’s important to thoroughly rinse your teeth and the trays to remove all remnants of the bleach.
Zoom Vs. Take Home Whitening Kits
Deciding between Zoom! and take home teeth whitening can sometimes be difficult. The main differences are:
- Zoom! teeth whitening treatment takes place at our dental practice.
- Zoom! can provide people with faster white teeth. Bleaching gel that’s used in dental practices typically consists of stronger peroxide concentrations, meaning that it can deconstruct stains much more quickly.
- Take-home treatments can be cheaper and done in your own time.
- Take-home treatments can be used as a whitening ‘top-up’ every now and then.
Should I Select Zoom! or Take-Home Whitening?
There’s no one right answer to this question. It depends on your schedule and budget. Are you looking to save money on your teeth whitening? Take home whitening may be appropriate for you. Are you trying to get whiter teeth fast? Zoom! may be the ideal solution for your cosmetic dentistry needs. It’s best to understand everything that goes into both treatment options before making your final decision.
