Tooth discolouration is a common dental concern. It can impact your confidence and in some cases, even your professional career.
Good oral hygiene habits, such as regular brushing and flossing and dental hygiene appointments, can help keep your smile in great shape. However, these practices aren’t always enough for everyone.
Several factors affect the appearance of your teeth. If you want to make yours several shades lighter, techniques such as the Zoom! Whitening can deliver fast results.
Zoom! is a tooth whitening procedure. It offers dramatic results in as quickly as one dental visit.
The first step is to schedule a consultation with your dentist in Calgary, Alberta. Here at Centennial Smiles, we’re happy to offer Zoom! tooth whitening to our patients.
During your consultation, we examine your teeth and gums. We also talk to you about your oral hygiene, dental goals, and medical history. We determine whether Zoom! is the best cosmetic procedure for you.
We take a look at any existing dental work, if any, like veneers. Note that pre-existing restorations won’t whiten. We may recommend another dental procedure to meet your goals and match your teeth.
Zoom! Whitening is a simple procedure. We take impressions of your teeth to create your custom trays for touch-ups at home.
We place a barrier in your mouth to protect the gum tissue and expose only your teeth. We then apply a whitening gel up to four times and within 15 minutes for every interval. We use special lighting to help the gel penetrate your teeth and break up stains.
Before and after the procedure, we show you how your teeth look. This way, you immediately see the changes in your smile.
Your teeth may feel sensitive after the procedure. But don’t worry, we provide you with care tips to maintain your improved smile.
Good dental care is still key to keeping your teeth looking great. We don’t recommend consuming any food or beverage that may stain your teeth for up to 72 hours. This includes coffee, soda, tea, ketchup, or curry.
Zoom! Whitening is safe provided you get it from a dental practitioner. But as with other tooth whitening procedures, it isn’t recommended for pregnant or lactating women and children under 13.
Almost anyone is eligible for Zoom! but may not be effective for others with existing dental work.
It depends on your lifestyle and habits. By following care instructions provided by your dental team, you can keep the shade of your smile lighter than they were pre-treatment. You need to use your custom trays as directed by your dentist to enjoy your whiter teeth longer.
Over-the-counter products are made one-size-fits-all.
Often the whitening agent used is only in very small concentrations, which isn’t enough to produce optimal results. The process takes a lot longer and misuse can also lead to dental problems.
With in-office tooth whitening options, your dentist first evaluates your smile before recommending a solution.
Tooth whitening agents are more powerful and are administered by dental professionals. The procedure is performed in a safe and controlled environment. And you can be confident that it can give you the results you’re looking for.
Zoom! Whitening is quick and painless. It can be completed in around an hour. You may experience tooth sensitivity afterward, but that’s temporary and will subside within three days after your treatment.
