So how does the teeth whitening process work?

The preparation

Following an initial consultation and assessment at our modern clinic, you will receive your teeth whitening appointment. Don’t worry, because the whole process from start to finish takes less than 1 hour. The first stage is where we prepare your teeth for whitening. First, your teeth are thoroughly cleaned to remove any leftover food or debris from the mouth. Next, your gums and lips are covered by a rubber dam – firstly to protect them and secondly to expose your teeth – ready for the Zoom whitening process.

The whitening
Once your teeth have been prepared, you’re good to go. Our highly experienced dentist will carefully apply a peroxide gel to your teeth. A UV light (laser) is then applied to the area which activates the gel. Once the gel is activated it gets to work by lifting any superficial staining.
Rinse and repeat
After approximately 10-15 minutes, our dentist will rinse off the gel to check the level of whitening and then the whole process is repeated 2-3 more times until the desired levels of whitening have been reached. Although Zoom whitening gel is designed to be strong, (hence why it can only be used by a dental professional) it’s also designed to cause less sensitivity, so patients shouldn’t feel any discomfort during treatment.
The coming days
For Epping patients seeking Zoom chairside teeth whitening, it’s important to know that in some cases (particularly a few days after the teeth whitening process) people may experience temporary and slight sensitivity as the whitening agent continues to work. For this reason, we also supply GC tooth mousse (ideal to restore the balance of sensitive teeth) or Sensodyne toothpaste to those patients who may need it.

How long does chairside teeth whitening in Epping last?

The longevity of any teeth whitening treatment depends heavily on diet and daily habits. So if you drink plenty of coffee and red wine or you smoke, then teeth are going to need touching up more frequently. However, as a general rule of thumb, patients can expect to return to us for more whitening treatment every 6-12 months. Remember, you don’t have to put up with less than perfect teeth!
