Make your smile bright with professional tooth whitening from Adelaide Smile Centre. Zoom Whitening is a professional tooth whitening system which gives immediate, safe and effective results.
To ensure your teeth are suitable for tooth whitening, the following appointments are required to ensure you achieve the best possible results from the Zoom whitening procedure:
An examination appointment with one of our dentists is required to assess your current dental condition and ensure any oral diseases such as tooth decay or gingivitis (gum redness and inflammation). These are treated prior to any whitening.
Following the treatment of any present oral diseases, a hygiene appointment is necessary to remove all plaque and calculus (tartar) so that the whitening gel can be applied to clean tooth surfaces.
In-chair whitening is then performed. The whitening gel is applied to the teeth and the Zoom light is applied to accelerate the whitening process. The gel is removed and reapplied every 15 minutes. This is done four times (total of 60 minutes).
Following the whitening procedure, a complementary take-home whitening kit is provided enabling you to maintain your new lighter colour teeth.
Whitening quick facts
Some patients experience sensitivity during and following the treatment, but this should only last for one or two days.
We recommend using sensitivity tooth paste for two weeks prior to the whitening procedure. We will provide this to you at your hygiene visit.
Individual results from teeth whitening may vary and are somewhat unpredictable. Your oral health therapist can give you an estimate of shade difference, but there is no guarantee of results.
The safety and risk of whitening will be explained to you at your initial appointments. Informed consent is obtained prior to proceeding with any whitening procedure.
