If you do smoke we would recommend getting home whitening trays for top-ups when needed- Regular hygiene appointments can also help maintain your brightness.

How does the ZOOM! Advanced Teeth Whitening System work?
The ZOOM! light-activated teeth whitening gel’s active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching coloured substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The ZOOM! teeth whitening light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.
Are there any side effects to ZOOM! Advanced Teeth Whitening?
The only side effect that some people experience is temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after completion of the teeth whitening treatment.
How is exposure to the ZOOM! Advanced teeth whitening light controlled?
The ZOOM! teeth whitening procedure requires that all soft tissue in and around the mouth be protected. The area is monitored during the procedure to insure any exposed skin or tissue is isolated and protected. Protective eyewear is required during the procedure. Light sensitive individuals including those undergoing PUVA (Psoralen+UV Radiation) therapy or other photo-chemotherapy, as well as patients with melanoma, should not undergo the ZOOM! Teeth Whitening procedure. Also patients taking light sensitive drugs or substances should consult their physician prior to ZOOM! Teeth Whitening.
How long does ZOOM! Advanced In-Office Whitening take?
The complete teeth whitening procedure takes just over an hour and a half (Two hours if you would like to also include home whitening trays). The tooth whitening begins with a preparation period followed by 45 minutes of whitening. This is done in 3 sessions of 15 minutes. A hygiene appointment is recommended prior to the actual ZOOM! Teeth Whitening session.
How does tray whitening compare?
Tray whitening is a great and inexpensive way to whiten your teeth. It is often combined with Zoom! so you can achieve instant results and you will still have the whitening trays to use later to “top up” your teeth if you feel they have stained after time or after foods which are particularly strong in colour.
Can I just get a tray system over the counter?
You cannot buy tooth whitening gels of the same strength and quality from a chemist as you can from your dentist. Moreover, the tray made by your dentist is custom made and fits your teeth like a personal retainer. A tray you make yourself from a kit may leak gel into your mouth and allow saliva into the gel reducing its effectiveness and can even damage your gums.
