Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that can lighten stained or discolored teeth. Tobacco, coffee, tea, alcohol, food additives, some developmental blemishes and natural aging all contribute to the discoloring and yellowing of teeth. While a professional dental clean can remove some staining, teeth whitening is a dental treatment that can provide patients with great results that whiten the color of teeth which have discolored over time.
Zoom is a bleaching process widely used around the world to lighten discoloration of teeth. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola, red wine or even from smoking. Before deciding whether Zoom in-office teeth whitening is right for you, your dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums to ensure proper health and as well talk to you about your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits to determine if you will benefit from whitening.
During your consultation and evaluation, your dentist also will note existing dental work, such as crowns, veneers which will NOT respond to conventional whitening agent.

This system involves making a thin custom tray which fits your upper and lower arch. They can be worn in the day and night with the gel. The gel is a milder version of what we use for the in chair zoom whitening system. It involves many applications to get the desired results. The results may be similar but will take 10-20 days or longer depending on the shade desired.
People are required to wear the trays with the gel and the gel slowly breaks down the stains and changes the shade to a lighter one.
Tooth discoloration is a very common problem related to root canal treatment and due to blood and other fluids leaked in to the root canal. The tooth color changes as the mineral structure of it changes from inside. This problem can be dealt with bleaching the tooth from inside or so called internal bleaching brightening teeth from inside out. We use safe peroxide into the pulp chamber so the dentine is treated from inside. The amount of agent used and the number of sittings is decided by the dentist. Sometimes it’s called walking bleach. These teeth which are treated from inside out should be taken good care as they might stain easily so please follow the dentists’ advice and instructions strictly to get the best possible results for your teeth.
