What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure aimed at lightening the colour of your teeth and removing stains or discoloration. It is a safe and effective way to achieve a brighter smile and boost your self-esteem.

Benefits and Advantages of Teeth Whitening

  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Whiter teeth can significantly improve the overall appearance of your smile, making you look more youthful and attractive.

  • Increased Confidence: A brighter smile can boost your confidence and make you feel more comfortable and self-assured in social and professional settings.

  • Improved Oral Health: Teeth whitening treatments often involve thorough cleaning, which can contribute to better oral hygiene and gum health.

  • Quick and Convenient: Philips Zoom Whitening is a fast and convenient procedure that delivers noticeable results in just one visit to our dental clinic.

Types of Teeth Whitening

There are various types of teeth whitening methods available, including in-office treatments like Philips Zoom Whitening and at-home whitening kits prescribed by dentists. Each method offers unique benefits and can be tailored to your preferences and needs.

Candidates for Teeth Whitening

Ideal candidates for teeth whitening are individuals with healthy teeth and gums who desire a brighter smile. It is essential to consult with our dental professionals to determine if teeth whitening is suitable for you based on your oral health and aesthetic goals.

Why are My Teeth Yellowing?

Yellowing of teeth can occur due to various factors, including:

  • Dietary Habits: Consuming foods and beverages with dark pigments like coffee, tea, wine, and berries can stain teeth over time.

  • Tobacco Use: Smoking or chewing tobacco can lead to yellowing and discoloration of teeth.

  • Aging: As we age, the enamel layer of teeth may wear down, revealing the yellowish dentin underneath.

  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can result in plaque buildup, which can contribute to tooth discoloration.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening works by using bleaching agents to break down stains and lighten the color of teeth. Philips Zoom Whitening, for instance, utilizes a powerful whitening gel activated by a special LED light to achieve rapid and effective results.

Step-by-Step Process of Teeth Whitening Procedure

  • Consultation: Our dental team will assess your oral health and discuss your whitening goals.

  • Preparation: We will protect your gums and lips before applying the whitening gel to your teeth.

  • Whitening Treatment: The Philips Zoom Whitening gel is applied to your teeth and activated by the LED light for approximately 45 minutes.

  • Evaluation: After the treatment, we will evaluate the results and may perform additional sessions for optimal whitening.

  • Aftercare: We will provide post-whitening instructions and tips to help you maintain your brighter smile.

Aftercare and Maintenance

To prolong the effects of teeth whitening and maintain oral hygiene:

  • Brush and floss regularly to remove plaque and prevent staining.

  • Avoid consuming foods and drinks that can stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored sauces.

  • Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings to monitor your oral health and address any concerns promptly.
