Cleaning of Teeth / Whitening of Teeth

Tooth discolouration may occur due to a variety of causes. The most common reasons include ageing, trauma to the tooth and consumption of substances that can form stains such as coffee, tea, cigarettes, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discolouration.

People who drink significant amounts of cola soft drinks can also have staining on their teeth. Apart from staining, there are other factors that can affect the colour of an individual's teeth like genetics that plays a vital role in differing shades of the enamel. Disease and certain medications may also contribute to the colouration of the teeth.

Effects of Tooth Discolouration

Tooth discolouration may hamper self-esteem and confidence of an individual. With Tooth whitening, a bright sparkling smile makes all the difference.

Procedure

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove stains and discolouration, as well as lighten pigmentation of the teeth. It is basically a bleaching process that whitens discolouration of enamel and dentin. Regardless, your teeth will be noticeably whiter after bleaching. The entire procedure takes less than an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by about less than an hour of bleaching.

Cleaning is recommended prior to the actual whitening procedure. With the Zoom’s Whitening system the active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide. As the Hydrogen Peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching colored substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. The Zoom light aids in activating the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth giving an average improvement of up to eight shades.

Significant whitening can be achieved in most cases immediately or within 24 hours after treatment. Almost anyone can go for this procedure. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others because it depends on your teeth structure.

Your Dental professional can determine if you can opt for this procedure through a thorough oral exam, including a shade assessment. Teeth stained by antibiotics and teeth with traumatic injury or root canal treatment, do not always respond immediately and may require further treatment.

Tooth colored fillings, veneers, bonding, and porcelain crowns will not whiten at all or evenly with your natural teeth during this procedure. There may be side effects of tooth sensitivity since the whitening solution reacts with the pigments causing the pigments to disperse which whitens the tooth.

The whitening solution does not cause any damage to the tooth or the teeth structure. Whitening teeth when done under the supervision of a dentist is generally a safe and effective procedure. It is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant.
