Your lifestyle and the ageing process can stain and darken your teeth. Many of your habits can contribute to stained teeth such as smoking, drinking tea, coffee, red wine and eating curries or red berries. Some people have naturally darker or more yellow teeth than others. During formation of teeth, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discolouration. At Number 1 Dental Practice we offer 2 types of long-lasting whitening:-
- Home Whitening
- Zoom Whitening
What is Home Whitening?
At Number One Dental Practice we offer the option of gradually whitening your teeth in your own time. The dentist will take impressions of your teeth which are used to make trays that perfectly fit your mouth. You will be given whitening gel to load into the trays which can be worn day or night (most popular) to gradually whiten your teeth. Along with full instructions you are also given some desensitising gel in case you experience some sensitivity during treatment. The trays are usually worn for 14 applications, although this may vary from patient to patient’s preference depending how white they want their teeth to go. We estimate your teeth could whiten by approximately 8 shades.
What is the difference between Zoom Power Whitening and Home Whitening?
The end result is the same, Zoom just achieves it faster (1 hour). Some patients experience mild sensitivity during whitening treatment, but this is less likely to occur with home whitening.
