In office whitening is ideal if you are looking to make a statement for a special occasion and with touch-ups treatments (at home) every few months you can continue to smile with confidence.
The Zoom! Teeth Whitening system is known for its speed and effectiveness.
Zoom! offers both an in-office and take home product for whitening your teeth whitening. Our in office Zoom! system uses the power of hydrogen peroxide activated by a specialized light to lift stains from your teeth and allow them to appear whiter. The results of Whitening are dependent on the original shade of your teeth and the reason for discoloration, but we often see results that can appear up to 8 shades whiter in a little over an hour.
The take home whitening system allows you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. We will provide you with custom whitening trays and provide you with whitening gel and instructions to take with you. You should start seeing results within the first three days and will return to our office for a follow up within a week.
If you are interested in bringing out the white in your teeth, Downtown Toronto dentist, Dr. Ellen Dayan and Dr. Gold will evaluate your teeth, smile and expectations with you and together you can determine if whitening is the correct cosmetic dental service for you.
Note: Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity or mild tooth or gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days after the treatment is finished.
