It is a fact that your teeth darken with age. Smoking, drinking strong coffee and red wine can make this worse. Tooth whitening can reverse this process and can last up to three years.
There are two ways to lighten your teeth. The first is to use close fitting trays, like thin gum shields, into which the whitening gel is placed and worn overnight for a couple of weeks. This normally results in the teeth becoming four shades lighter.
The patient may stop at this stage or go on with the second stage.
For the second stage, the patient will be sat in the dental chair for an hour or more. Stronger agents are painted on the teeth and a special light is used to activate the gel. We normally see the teeth becoming up to eight shades lighter.

Using a whitening gel and state-of-the-art light technology, Zoom is the latest ‘laser’ whitening technique. The procedure is safe, fast acting, gentle and highly effective.
