What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening?

Whitening Benefits


You cannot fix all discolorations on your teeth with just brushing and flossing alone. Poor oral hygiene habits and certain foods and drinks can stain your teeth, including:​ Coffee, Teas Coke Smoking Red Wine Berries Spices with pigments (Including Curry, etc.) Teeth whitening at Bathurst College Dentistry can improve the appearance of most teeth discolorations. Please be advised that some discolorations and stains cannot be whitened and/or removed because they are permanent. Other non-whitening solutions are available, please see us for details. Our in-office teeth-whitening procedures can whiten your teeth several shades whiter, which leaves you more confident with your smile and overall appearance.




Is a tooth whitening procedure a one-time permanent solution to discoloration?


No, a single tooth whitening procedure is not a permanent solution to keeping your smile bright. You need to maintain good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing regularly. As well as eliminating the consumption of stain causing foods and beverages. If you take good care of your teeth, the results of whitening should last at least six months. You can get additional dental whitening to reinvigorate your smile every so often.




Are there risks involved with teeth whitening?


The most notable risk after a tooth whitening procedure is heightened tooth sensitivity. However, with the innovative technology we use at Bathurst College Dentistry, it is highly unlikely you will experience any major sensitivity after treatment. Minor tooth sensitivity should dissipate over time with the proper after care.





How does teeth whitening work?

How whitening works?


Teeth whitening works by targeting discoloration in the tooth surface and breaking it apart with a whitening agent. The active ingredient of the whitening agent is hydrogen peroxide and/or carbamide peroxide. Our team uses teeth whitening technology, that uses a light to amplify your results. During the teeth whitening procedure at our office, our team applies the bleaching agent directly to your teeth. The whitening agent bubbles up stains from inside the tooth structure. In just one visit to our office, you will see your teeth get significantly whiter. Additionally, we offer take home trays and provide detailed instructions so you can whiten your teeth at home on your own time. Note: The amount of time you need to wear the tray depends on the level of discoloration of your teeth and your desired results.





Zoom! Whitening

About Zoom!


A pearly-white smile is beautiful to look at and can greatly improve self-confidence. Many people are opting for the Zoom! Whitening System for fast, safe and effective teeth whitening. Zoom! combines the newest advances in dental technology with proven chemical formulas that ensure the whitening experience is comfortable and satisfying. There are many reasons why teeth become stained or discolored, including tobacco use, and drinking dark liquids such as red wine, coffee, tea, and cola. However, the natural aging process and prescription medication use can also cause yellowing and graying.




Zoom! has many advantages over other treatments, including:


Reduced sensitivity. Longer lasting results. Faster treatment times. All teeth treated simultaneously. Removal of stains on crowns, veneers, and other restorations. Treatments are performed by an experienced professional. It is important to seek our advice prior to beginning a bleaching regime. Women who are pregnant or lactating should not seek bleaching treatment.




What happens after treatment?


The same external factors that caused the discoloration in the first place can quickly work their way back onto the teeth. For this reason, we recommend flossing once a day, thorough cleaning with anti-sensitivity toothpaste twice a day, and occasional retreatment with an at home whitening agent. These post-treatment measures will ensure that your smile stays its whitest for a long time. If you have questions about the Zoom!
