The Zoom in office whitening system will make your teeth dramatically whiter. It is a scientifically advanced, patent pending, tooth whitening procedure that is safe, effective and fast.
The convenience of Zoom in comparison to days of wearing trays or strips makes it a perfect choice for the busy individual. The procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. The Zoom clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom whitening gel which was designed to be used with a specially designed light. The Zoom light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up stains and discolouration.

Why Tooth whitening? Zoom or Home Whitening Kit
You have less then 10 seconds to make a good impression on someone you're meeting for the first time. Clean white teeth go a long way in helping you make that initial positive impression both in your personal and professional life. As people age, their teeth age too, and years of coffee, tea, red wine, certain fruits and smoking can add up on your teeth to dull the color.

To restore your not-so- pearly whites to their former luster, you'll be interested in these tooth whitening tips:

  • First visit your dentist to make sure that you are a good candidate for the bleaching process.
  • Discuss with your dentist your expectations. While whitening works well in most cases, the level of success depends on what you're starting off with. For example, yellowish hued teeth will probably bleach well, brownish-coloured teeth not as well, and greyish-hued teeth less well.
  • Once we determine that you are a good candidate , we will talk about methods available for bleaching. Different products have different benefits, risks and effects.
Whitening toothpastes sold in local drugstore use abrasive ingredients that are really not bleaching products at all as they work on the surface stains only. Be aware of the damaging effects that these abrasive ingredients could have on your teeth.

Bleaching kits sold in stores stay longer on your teeth then toothpaste and are comprised of stronger bleaching chemicals. Kits that include a one size fit all trays to hold the bleach should be used with caution as the tray may not fit your mouth precisely increasing the possibility of gum irritation. There is an increased risk of chemicals leak from the tray to your mouth. Tooth and gum irritation is a real concern and should be monitored by a professional.

A more economical option is dentist supervised, at home whitening which involves a bleaching tray that is custom made for you and that fits over your teeth and can be worn at home to whiten your teeth in as little as 2 weeks. We will supervise the whitening process and ensure that it is proceeding safely while monitoring any sensitivity to your teeth and gum.
