Patients Teeth Before & After Teeth Whitening
How long does the treatment take?
Zoom Teeth Whitening takes one-two hours. We do the treatment at the clinic. (This is not the treatment you take home). If you have not had a dental cleaning in the past month, it is recommended to have it done before your Zoom Whitening. Otherwise, the result might not be quite what you are hoping for.
What material is used for Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening performed at the dentist uses Hydrogen Peroxide. The percentage of Hydrogen Peroxide determines the effect. Usually at the dental office we use Hydrogen Peroxide 25%-40%.
How long does the Teeth Whitening last?
It really depends on your teeth, genetics, and your diet. Smoking, drinking tea, coffee, and red wine all can affect your teeth colours and how long the Zoom whitening lasts.
What shall I do after the treatment?
You should try to avoid drinking coffees as much as possible, but you can have a home kit to help you whiten your teeth every year or so. Or you can come in for a boost of teeth whitening whenever you feel the colour of your teeth is getting darker.
The boost would be the same procedure we do for teeth whitening only it would be half an hour treatment just to give your teeth a boost.
What other options is there?
Did you know Ceramic Veneers is also called permanent Teeth whitening? To read more about the differences between Teeth Whitening and porcelain Veneers check out our blogpost HERE.
Is it harmful?
No. There is absolutely no harm in whitening your teeth. The only side effect of teeth whitening is teeth sensitivity. Teeth sensitivity is caused by the slight acidic nature of Hydrogen Peroxide.
That is why at Gorgeous Smiles we apply Fluoride varnish right after every teeth whitening treatment to make sure the sensitivity will be much less and will be gone in a day or two.
Do fillings change with Teeth Whitening?
If you have an old filling on the front tooth in a way that it shows in your smile, the colour difference might show after the teeth whitening. We are not able to whiten fillings.
What can be done is to whiten your teeth and wait about 14 days for the colour to settle; Then we can change the filling to a colour that matched the new teeth colour.
Can I have Zoom Teeth Whitening if I am pregnant?
Unfortunately, no. You cannot have teeth whitening at home or office as long as you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can I eat and drink right after Whitening my teeth?
We usually ask our patients to avoid eating or drinking for an hour, but that is for the Fluoride varnish treatment to be fully absorbed by the teeth. After an hour has passed, you can eat and drink as usual.
We would recommend not to have any red wine, coffee, tea, or cigarettes for at least for 48 hours after teeth whitening.
What are my options for Teeth Whitening?
There are several options. to do it at the dentist is what we recommend. There are several factors to keep in mind when undergoing a Teeth Whitening procedure at our Melbourne CBD clinic. Keep your gums, cheeks, and tongue away from the bleaching material is one. This is what we do for you and make sure your soft tissue is safe from the teeth whitening material before we start.
