Dreaming of a White Christmas? How to achieve your perfect smile!

Posted in: Blog, by pfwpa, on 23rd November 2018 | 0 comments

Christmas is just around the corner, and amongst all the hustle and bustle of Christmas shoppers on our high streets, trying to find the perfect gift, have you thought about what your perfect Christmas gift would be?

Could it be more confidence in your smile? To have whiter and brighter teeth, which could take years off you? If the answer is yes, then Zoom Teeth Whitening could be the perfect gift for you.

The highly effective teeth whitening system is available at our practice and it gently lightens your teeth to enhance your natural tooth colour. The use of a combination of in-surgery and at-home treatments provides both immediate and long-lasting results.

Pros of Zoom Whitening

Immediate results – the patient can see they have whiter teeth immediately after the treatment, which gives them instant results they can be happy with.

Quick process
– the consultation and actual procedure normally takes around 90 minutes.

Long lasting – the treatment includes the in-surgery treatment and then gel applications to use at home, which makes the results last longer. Patients can also buy more top-up gels to prolong the whiteness. If you take good care of your teeth and try to avoid staining foods and drinks, such as red wine, coffee and beetroot, soya sauce etc, then your teeth whitening could last between 1-2 years.

Less sensitivity – there is a common idea that people using teeth whitening treatments suffer with sensitive teeth after the process. Zoom has considerably less sensitivity than other procedures. However, it should be performed safely in a dental practice.

How to achieve your perfect smile!

We use five steps to achieve your perfect smile. First, we would carry out a pre-treatment consultation, where we assess your teeth and gums and sometimes take x-rays to ascertain that your teeth are healthy enough to be suitable for the treatment.

We then take impressions of your teeth, in order to make custom-made teeth whitening trays. We also take some ‘before‘ photos, noting the colour of your teeth on our chart, so we can track the shade that you would like your teeth to be.

Step three is when you come back in a week later to see that your trays fit perfectly. These trays will protect your gums and make sure the gel only goes in the desired places. You will be instructed on how to use the trays at home and will wear these for a week at home.

At the next appointment, you are ready for your Zoom Whitening! Firstly, we protect the gums and lips and add the stain busting gel to the teeth. Then, we use the specially designed light to activate the gel. We continuously monitor this and take the teeth to the desired shade we previously agreed with you. You can usually go up to 8 shades lighter.

We will then provide the home kit, which should be used for the next few days. The final step would be a review appointment, which would involve some more ‘after’ photos and you can accurately compare the ‘before’ and ‘after’ treatment results.

If you would like to get the Christmas gift of whiter, brighter teeth in
time for the Christmas period, then please contact the dental practice on 01582 763 420 to make an appointment.
