Mills Haven Dental chooses Zoom! teeth whitening as it is a simple, safe and effective bleaching process that is completed in only one treatment.
The best candidates for professional teeth whitening are dental patients with healthy teeth and gums in good condition. Dental patients with shades of yellow-toned teeth are more likely to see better results.
It's important to note that patients with old restoration work may not be suitable candidates. Inorganic elements (e.g. fillings, crowns, or implants) aren't receptive to whitening, so the results will cause individual teeth to look mismatched in shade and tone.
Zoom! teeth whitening is not recommended for:
Zoom! is a one treatment procedure which is completed in a single 1-hour visit to your dentist.
Zoom! is a quick and straight-forward procedure:
The latest version of Zoom has three light intensity settings to reduce the risk of sensitivity.
Generally speaking, Zoom! results can last from 12-24 months, but the effects will greatly depend on the conditions of your teeth prior to getting the treatment done as well as how well your teeth are maintained post-procedure.
Note: We recommend waiting three weeks between procedures.
Zoom! teeth whitening requires minimal after-care maintenance.
Brush and floss as per normal, but be sure to avoid dark staining substances (e.g. coffee, tea, red wine, dark sauces, berries, or red meats) for the first week after your treatment.
We also recommend for patients to use Sensodyne toothpaste to combat thermal sensitivity for the first 12-24 hours after the procedure.
