Teeth Whitening in Scarborough
Gaining a beautiful bright smile may be easier than extensive smile makeovers. In many cases, a simple whitening procedure may help patients achieve the desired results, in a safe conservative manner.
Discoloration of teeth may be due to many different factors. Consumption of colored drinks such as soda, red wine, or coffee along with smoking are the most common causes of staining on teeth. Dental bleaching works very effectively against these discolorations.
Choose between Take-Home Teeth Whitening or in-office Zoom! Whitening
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades* in a little over an hour while you relax at your dentist’s office.
How does Zoom! In-Office Whitening work?
The Zoom! Light activated whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged. The Zoom! light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.
Are there any side effects?
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
The take home kit includes a set of trays and bleaching solution. You may use the solution and the trays according to the instructions given to you by our staff. Multiple uses may be needed for achieving the desired shade.
