The procedure involves our dentist cleaning and checking the patient’s teeth. The patient’s gums are then given protection before a tooth whitening gel is then applied to the teeth. Using the latest technology, and under the proper supervision of our dentist, the gel is subjected to the world-renowned, ‘Zoom’ laser teeth whitening light. This process can whiten the teeth by three or four grades.
Tooth color varies from person to person. Cigarette smoking, excessive tea, coffee, and acidic beverage consumption, the lack of sufficient attention to dental hygiene and care can lead to yellowing or staining of the teeth. In some cases, structural defects in the womb or in childhood, or continuous use of medication may also cause dental color variations. The ‘Zoom’ laser whitening process is the expeditious and most economical procedure for all such cases.
In some extreme cases, the patient will be asked to use a whitening treatment applied at home while undergoing laser whitening at our clinic. In such cases, our cosmetic dentists, in cooperation with our laboratory technicians, will be able to explain how to apply and store the gel.
Two reasons for discolored teeth;
If the patient is unable to achieve whiter teeth after following a proper oral and dental health regime (such as brushing and flossing), then the discoloration is probably caused by various medications, a congenital disorder, or the use of antibiotics.
Staining and yellowing of the teeth can be caused by bad oral hygiene, smoking, frequent drinking of tea, coffee, and acidic and sugary beverages.
For quicker results, patient’s prefer to have their teeth whitening procedure done under the control of the dentist at our clinic. However, the most effective procedure is the combination of treatment done in the clinic with further treatment done at home. Also available at our clinic is the popular ‘Zoom’ laser tooth whitening procedure, the latest in dental technology.
