Introducing ZOOM! Teeth Whitening – The fastest way to whiten teeth

An easy, convenient and affordable way to get the white smile you always imagined.

Using their patented Whitespeed’s LED technology, ZOOM! Teeth Whitening can make your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in just over 45 minutes a day. The In-Office and take home packages to contain formulated gels that have a pH booster to guarantee your teeth are re-mineralized and therefore better protected. The formula for these gels include some fancy compounds like amorphous calcium phosphate, sodium fluoride, and potassium nitrate which desensitize your fangs whilst they are being bleached. Don’t be scared by the term “bleach” as ZOOM!’s formula uses hydrogen peroxide and can only be dispensed through qualified dental clinicians ensuring you get the best results, every time.

It is also recommended that you use your take-home customized trays to safeguard the lifespan of your shades of white. These you would just use for around 30 minutes a month at home just to boost your teeth’s brilliance.

ZOOM’s effects should last around 12-18 months depending on how well you maintain them. We’ve compiled a list of do’s and don’ts to help you keep that smile brighter for longer to get more bang for your buck after using ZOOM!:

Do use an electric toothbrush: these hand-held devices vibrate, rotate, oscillate and break up bacteria far better than we could do with just our writs. Because of routine brushing with an electric version, they can prevent staining inside your teeth which may be the result of a dead nerve or a cavity caused by decay. Electric toothbrushes also get into the nooks and crannies our normal toothbrush can’t and they blast away any bits or leftovers from coffee, red wine or food that may stain our teeth.

Don’t brush your teeth for at least an hour after the ZOOM! Treatment. Unfortunately, most teeth-whitening formulas contain acid products which can soften your enamel for a short time. We would hate for any harm to come to your enamel so for once – avoid brushing (even if only for 60 minutes).

Do steer clear and stay away from food and drinks that contain colourants. After using ZOOM! Whitening gels, your teeth become ‘porous’ and starved of moisture and act like a sponge. That means they will soak up almost any colour substance they come into contact with for at least 5 days’ post-treatment.

So don’t eat, drink or consume tobacco, BBQ or marinara sauces, green tea or foods with turmeric spice in them. Instead do stick to drinks like water, milk and coconut – anything with a whiter or no colourant in it.

On this note, don’t use toothpaste or mouthwash with colourants in it for at least 24 hours after leaving our dental chair. Although we always encourage a good oral hygiene routine, for this one time and this one time only, we’d suggest keeping away

Don’t eat acidic foods as your teeth will definitely feel sensitive after your ZOOM! Treatment and we don’t want you in any pain or discomfort. Your teeth may feel tender to touch so rather do eat higher pH, more alkaline items like avocados, spinach, peppers, broccoli, and watermelon. Avoid citrus and acidic fruits like oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes and pineapple as their level of acidity may damage your enamel and cause you serious pain and tenderness.

Do rinse your mouth thoroughly and a few times after you eat or drink anything with artificial or strong colour to it. Because ZOOM! Teeth Whitening isn’t permanent, your teeth will eventually stain and become less white, but if you keep rinsing and become routine in doing so, your brightness should last longer.
