Would you like to smile proudly when you first meet someone, since this is their very first impression of you ? There is no longer any reason to feel embarrassed by your smile since there are now many options available to you to whiten and brighten your teeth. Teeth whitening products can brighten teeth that are stained, yellowed or discoloured from food, red wine, tea, coffee, and natural aging. It is a great way to rejuvenate your smile.
At our office, we offer Philips ZOOM® Whitening for patients looking for a whiter smile. We have had excellent results with this system and our patients are very happy.
ZOOM® Whitening Treatment
This in-office treatment takes approximately 2 hours in our office. ZOOM® Whitening offers a safe and effective way to brighten your teeth. You will leave us with a brighter, whiter smile up to 8 shades brighter than when you came in. The best part is that when you leave, you are completely finished and can enjoy your new, beautiful smile immediately. We will take a photo of you before and after the procedure to show you the difference in the colour.
All whitening procedures may cause some degree of sensitivity, which is why we always start your whitening procedure with a desensitizing pre-treatment to ensure your comfort. A gentle, hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel is then applied to your teeth. After this step, your teeth will be exposed to a specific high-intensity light.
In-Office Teeth Whitening Benefits
A benefit of this treatment is that not only does it offer greater whitening power, but also less tooth sensitivity.
Some other benefits of having your teeth whitened in-office include:
What To Expect After Teeth Whitening
When you leave our office, you will have everything you need to do a touch up whenever you feel you want to refresh your rejuvenated smile.
You will depart with custom-made whitening trays that protect your gum tissue, a syringe of whitening gel, a photo of your smile before and after, and written instructions.
We recommend doing your touch up after you have seen your hygienist for your regular teeth cleaning. This will give you the best result possible by eliminating accumulated surface stains.
A common side effect that you may encounter is increased tooth sensitivity to cold. This will only last about 1 to 3 days following the treatment.

teeth Whitening results
Teeth whitening procedures are very effective but they are not permanent. The whitening may fade over time based on your eating and drinking habits. We advise you to avoid food and drink that may stain or darken your teeth, such as red wine, tea or coffee etc.. You can always decide to do a refreshing of the whitening treatment by wearing your custom whitening trays along with the whitening gel for 2-3 days depending on your desired result. Each patient reacts differently and may have a different idea of what “white” means to them.
How Does Zoom® In-Office Teeth Whitening Work?
The Zoom Teeth Whitening System has been developed for rapid results. Not only that, but you can lift several shades of discoloration in a single, two-hour visit! The way that we can achieve this is through the use of UV light. After applying the whitening gel, we direct the light source to reach all of your teeth at the same time. The light causes a reaction in the whitening gel that enables it to better penetrate the enamel to quickly break up stain-causing particles.
Are there Precautions I Should Take After Zoom® Teeth Whitening?
For a few days after the Zoom procedure, your teeth may be more open to absorbing moisture, which means they’re more susceptible to staining. For two to three days, it may be advantageous to eat foods that are light in color. This is sometimes referred to as a “white diet.” It includes foods like white yogurt, milk, rice, bread, eggs, chicken, fish, and white beans. As much as possible, avoid stain-causing foods and beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, soda, and tomato sauce. Also, you can protect your teeth from stains by drinking plenty of water and rinsing your mouth after meals.
How Long Do Teeth Whitening Results Last?
In clinical studies, the Zoom Teeth Whitening System has shown that it can achieve remarkable results in a single session. The new shade that is attained can last as long as two years. That said, your results are somewhat up to you. If you smoke or consume beverages that are known to cause tooth discoloration, your radiant smile may fade more quickly into a dull yellow shade.Your daily habits don’t have to prevent you from enjoying lasting teeth whitening results. We would never expect you to go without your morning cup of coffee or tea, nor to significantly alter any of your lifestyle habits for the sake of a more beautiful smile. Instead, we encourage you to rinse your mouth with water, swishing the fluid over and through your teeth, after eating or drinking anything colored. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily can also help you extend your teeth whitening results.
How Often Can I Get Zoom® Teeth Whitening?
Your teeth will inevitably become dull or yellow again over time. Because tooth enamel is porous, tiny particles of debris will settle into the outer layer of your teeth. If you notice your smile losing its radiance luster, you can schedule a subsequent Zoom treatment. If you maintain optimal oral health, you may safely receive Zoom teeth whitening once or twice per year.Dr. Slepchik proudly offers Teeth Whitening for Life! By partaking in this affordable program, you can prolong the results of your initial Zoom treatment. When you enroll in Teeth Whitening for Life, you can receive a tube of professional-grade whitening gel to use at home in between your visits.
Are There Instances in Which Teeth Whitening Doesn’t Work?
Professional teeth whitening is extraordinarily effective at removing built-up stains within the outer layers of enamel. Still, there are instances in which this service is not ideal. The teeth-whitening gel, even when activated by UV light, cannot permeate through calculus, the hardened form of tartar. Before you undergo teeth whitening, Dr. Slepchik will perform a thorough examination and cleaning to ensure you get the best results. Teeth whitening also does not affect restorations like crowns, veneers, and bonding. If you have these restorations, your teeth whitening treatment will be carefully planned around them to ensure your smile looks harmonious. Finally, teeth whitening works only on external stains. If discoloration exists inside your teeth, you may be a better candidate for veneer treatment.
