Our teeth whitening treatments can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades
Redlands Gentle Dental care offer Zoom! teeth whitening and porcelain veneers to whiten your teeth. In some cases, we also offer dental crowns, however this is more a restorative treatment rather than purely cosmetic.
What Zoom! teeth whitening can do for your smile
Zoom! teeth whitening is one of the most trusted whitening products on the market. This trusted teeth whitening brand is used by dentists the world over to provide patients with a reliable solution for brightening smiles.
The advantage of having your teeth whitened by a dentist rather than buying over-the-counter products is: a dentist knows what is good for your oral health. Before you have a teeth whitening treatment your oral health is assessed to ensure the cause of the staining is cosmetic.
If the cause of the tooth discolouration is not cosmetic, you may require a filling or root canal therapy. If you require root canal therapy then after that procedure, you may need a dental crown to strengthen and protect the tooth. A dental crown is made from porcelain and is colour-matched to your tooth so that it will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth.
If the stain is cosmetic but too deep for bleaching, you may require a composite or porcelain veneer. This is why buying over-the-counter whitening products can be a waste of money.
How long does it take for a Zoom! teeth whitening treatment?
This treatment takes around 45 to 60 minutes, and at the end of the treatment your teeth will be up to 8 shades whiter. It is important after whitening treatment to abstain from tea, coffee, wine and any other drink that could stain your teeth.
Results typically last between 9 and 12 months, but it does depend on how well you take care of your oral health.
Porcelain veneers not only whiten teeth they can also conceal chips and cracks
Porcelain veneers are effective for brightening your smile, as well as concealing minor imperfections. A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain bonded to the front of a tooth. The porcelain is matched to the colour of your natural teeth so that it blends in with your smile.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth prior to having porcelain veneers, Redlands Gentle Dental Care recommend having your teeth whitened first. Not only will this give your whole smile a revitalised appearance it will improve the results of the veneer treatment
Another reason for having your teeth whitened prior to having porcelain veneers placed is that veneers aren’t affected by bleaching. So, if you decide later on you want your teeth whitened, you’ll either have to have new veneers placed on having teeth of different shades.
