Convenient and Effective Teeth Whitening

Up to 6 Shades Whiter in About an Hour with Phillips Zoom!

People say that a picture is worth a thousand words. What do pictures say about your smile? Do you have a confident smile, flashing those pearly whites to the camera? Or are you a pursed-lip smiler, wanting to show you’re having a good time despite being self-conscious about your teeth?

If you answered ‘yes’ to the latter, or feel that your smile could do with being brighter, then you’re not alone. Many people worry about their smiles, with good reason. Our smiles are often the first thing people notice; they are also all-too-easy to stain. Luckily, there is a convenient solution to bring back the dazzle to your smile right here in Ivanhoe!

Causes of Teeth Stains

Your teeth are exposed every day to the risk of being stained. While you can control some of the causes to reduce the damage, others are unavoidable. The biggest offenders for teeth discolouration include:

  • Age
  • Foods & drinks
  • Disease
  • Genetics
  • Medication
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Tobacco use
  • Trauma

While some forms of staining can be avoided through lifestyle changes (avoiding soft drinks, tea and coffee, avoiding curries, quitting smoking etc), other agents of discolouration are outside of our control. Routine dental exams and cleaning can help keep teeth clean and healthy, but sometimes you need a little more. That’s why we offer the proven Zoom! teeth whitening service at our Ivanhoe dental practice.

A Natural Shade of White

Our entire team understands that every patient is different, including the natural colour of your teeth. Our cosmetic dental treatments work with the natural glow of your smile instead of trying to make a fake-looking smile.

Our time-tested teeth whitening procedure helps you to regain a bright, natural smile that you can show off with pride in your next selfie or family album picture . No matter how your teeth came to be discoloured, our caring and knowledgeable staff can help erase the discolouration and restore your natural, beautiful smile.

The longer you allow discolouration to remain, the worse it can become. It should be noted that some discolouration can hint towards developing dental issues, which is why we encourage a through oral exam prior to starting the bleaching process.

Many of our patients elect to have a tooth whitening treatment as part of their smile makeover plan. The shade of your teeth can be lightened to make it close to any porcelain crowns or veneers. If you choose one of our smile makeover plans, ask our friendly dentists what to expect for your final outcome. With years of experience, we’re quickly able to help determine your ideal solution.

Is Tooth Whitening Safe?

Our Zoom Whitening treatment does not damage or weaken the enamel of your teeth and is a proven, safe and effective treatment.

What to Expect

When you have your treatment, we’ll cover your lips and gums while leaving the teeth exposed. We will then apply the Zoom hydrogen peroxide gel which will work with the Zoom light to break down stains and discolouration. The gel is applied three times during your appointment. We recommend you bring some music to listen to!

Please note: You may feel some sensitivity during and after the treatment but this is usually minor and only lasts a few hours.

Post-Bleaching Care

After your whitening treatment, you can take steps to help maintain your new brilliance.

  • The first and most obvious is to ensure you are practising proper oral hygiene. Brushing twice daily, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash are essential in protecting your teeth from stains. Regular wellness exams and routine cleanings also help.
  • Avoiding stain offenders like coffee, tea, red wine, soft drinks, curry-based foods and tobacco as they can also contribute to staining.
  • Certain oral hygiene products are better than others for cleaning and protecting your mouth. Ask our dentists for recommendations based on your current oral health and lifestyle habits that may affect your teeth.
