People have been seeking brighter, whiter smiles for centuries. With the advance of modern dentistry, a thriving teeth whitening industry now spans the world.With many different treatments, recommendations and trends, it is difficult to choose the best option for you.
In West Malling, cosmetic dentistry is your best bet against yellow teeth. At One Smile Oral Care, we are aware that discoloured teeth can make you feel extra self-conscious in various social situations, leading to the habit of hiding your teeth when talking or smiling. Our experienced dentists are happy to offer Zoom teeth whitening, an innovative method of teeth cleaning with bright and rapid results, to patients with busy schedules.
Why do teeth turn yellow?
Poor oral hygiene is one of the main causes of yellow teeth, but even the most dedicated brushers can develop discoloured teeth resulting from the natural aging process. Other causes of discoloured teeth include the consumption of coffee, tea, and red wine as well as smoking. Tea, coffee and red wine contain tannins that can easily cause tooth discolouration, while tobacco affects your enamel due to its high content of nicotine and tar.
Fortunately, most of these situations are fixable and preventable with cosmetic dentistry in West Malling. The Zoomin-office teeth whitening treatment uses the Zoom advanced power chair side lamp, which accelerates the bleaching process to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades.
How does the Zoomin-house system work?
Before deciding whether Zoom teeth whitening is suitable for you, your dentist at One Smile Oral Care will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to ensure proper oral health.
The procedure takes less than an hour, but we recommend having your teeth regularly cleaned prior to the actual Zoom session. For the treatment, we use a light-activated whitening gel whose main ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. The gel is applied directly on your teeth after a short preparation to cover your lips and gums. The Zoom light activates the gel, penetrates the teeth and eventually breaks up the stains and discolouration. The gel is applied for three 15minute sessions of light stimulation for a total treatment time of one hour.
