Teeth Whitening in Mill Woods, Southeast Edmonton
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.
Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. The most common causes of stains are smoking or chewing tobacco. Drinking large amounts of tea, coffee or cola drinks is another common cause of teeth discoloration, and it is the tannin inside the ingredients that does the damage. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.
For your convenience and budget, we have two methods of whitening available to you. The first is an in-office procedure called ZOOM! Laser Teeth Whitening. The second is the use of a take home kit that you can conveniently use.
Zoom! Laser Teeth Whitening In-Office System
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth an average of eight shades in a little over an hour while you relax at your dentist’s office. It’s ideal for anyone who wants immediate results.
The Zoom! system makes it possible for our dentists to whiten your smile in a single dental appointment. Here is how it works:
- A gum guard is placed in your mouth to shield your gums and lips from the whitening gel
- Whitening gel is applied to your teeth
- Your teeth are exposed to the Zoom! LED light 3-4 times, for 15 minutes each time
The Zoom! light activates the whitening agents in the gel, creating the level of whiteness you want to see in your smile.
The entire procedure takes just over one hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure (we recommend a cleaning prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening session).
Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment.
At Home Zoom Tooth Whitening
The Zoom! Take-Home Whitening System uses a revolutionary patent-pending gel to whiten your teeth an average of six shades in three nights! You may go even lighter with additional applications. Start on Friday and by Monday you’ll have a whole new smile.
The Zoom! take-home gel is designed to be worn between four and eight hours per application. Your hygienist at Agape Dental Clinic will advise you on how long you should wear each application. A recent study showed that you can achieve an average improvement of six shades* after just three nights of use. Your dentist and hygienist at Agape Dental Clinic will help you determine how many applications are right for you.
Take home whitening involves preparing custom trays by taking an impression of your mouth. Our lab will create a custom tray used in holding the whitening gel against the teeth. The custom fit means there is no risk of ingesting the whitening agents. The whitening agents are more powerful than what you can buy over the counter and therefore the results are more dramatic. The at home whitening package used at your convenience also allows you to have control over how white your tooth colour will become.
