Can I restore my teeth to their natural colour?

One cosmetic treatment that has become popular for people from all walks of life is the ability to replenish their smile via teeth whitening Harley Street.

With daily life playing havoc on our teeth, mouth and gums it is no wonder that the naturally white smile begins to diminish and dull over time. From coffee stains, to red wine stains to the general wear and tear of life, having the shade of your teeth show these signs of ageing or lifestyle habits can impact an individual’s self-esteem.

Luckily for every individual on the planet, teeth whitening Harley Street is an affordable, comfortable solution that provides amazing results.

How does Zoom whitening work?

Zoom whitening is just one of the methods offered to re-creating your dazzling smile. This particular teeth whitening Harley Street treatment is carried out in house.

As with all treatments and procedures the starting point is a consultation. This process enables your dental team to decide whether or not this is the best treatment for you. After all, for those with bridges, crowns and veneers, the better option would be to replace them before sitting in the chair and undergoing the whitening process.

If this treatment is the one for you, then the following appointment will be a thoroughly deep clean of the teeth, mouth and gums. This is carried out by your dental hygienist and is the same process as when you have your routine appointments. Once any plaque, tartar or any other debris has been eliminated from the mouth, the whitening can begin.

Now whilst we want to whiten the teeth, we also want to protect the gums from burning which is why a barrier gel is applied to the areas surrounding the teeth. This is of extreme importance as it ensures that the bleaching gel is focused entirely on the teeth rather than damaging the surrounding gums. Once the protective barrier is in place, the bleaching gel is applied carefully to the visible surface area of each tooth. It is then time to sit back and relax whilst a specialist light is focused on the teeth which activates the teeth whitening Harley Street.

Once time is up, the bleaching agent is carefully removed from your teeth and your dental team provides another thorough clean. Your brightened smile can then be visibly noticed and all within a 45-minute appointment.

How much lighter can my smile become?

Depending on the severity of the stains, it may be that you are looking for quite a few shades lighter than your current smile. Zoom whitening is able to get your teeth 16 shades lighter in just 14 days. Whilst this may sound like a lot, it may be that this still does not reach the shade you are after. If this is the case then additional top-up treatments will be discussed with your dental team.

Will this last my lifetime?

Whilst a dazzling white smile for eternity with no further discolouration would be amazing, in reality it is not possible. However, the results of Zoom teeth whitening Harley Street can last up to a year providing you avoid the bad habits such as smoking, vaping or reduce the caffeine and wine drinking. Luckily, there are top-up gels available to assist, so ask your dental team about them so as to keep your smile dazzling for longer.
