As with all treatments, you will first attend a consultation with your dentist for an up to date
assessment of your oral health and to discuss your available options in detail. At this
appointment you will be given plenty of time to ask questions, but we encourage you to
contact us at any time if you have concerns. Should you decide to proceed, a treatment plan outlining the time schedule and costs will be provided.
If you choose Zoom! professional teeth whitening treatment it starts with your dentist checking your current shade, so you can both see the dramatic difference after your treatment is
complete. Your dentist will prep your mouth for whitening and applies a layer of advanced whitening gel to your teeth. To speed up the whitening process, they’ll shine our Zoom! bue LED lamp onto your teeth. This accelerates the whitening, plus the lamp’s variable settings ensure you’ll get a comfortable experience. This process is repeated three times and is completed in just over 1 hour!
Once you’ve reached your desired shade, your dentist will apply our post-treatment gel to help protect enamel and reduce sensitivity.
Before you leave the practice, you will receive customised whitening trays and a take home whitening kit, which is included in the price of your treatment. This way, you can top-up the brightness of your smile whenever you want to.
