The teeth-whitening industry is largely unregulated so why are we the place to go?
In simple terms salons do not have the level of qualification that’s dentists do and are not able to advise on whether the process is appropriate for your kind of discolouration or perform a dental check-up.
Salons are restricted on the concentrates they use due to regulations and limit the strength to six percent hydrogen (18% carbamide peroxide) which may result in little or no change to tooth colour. Dentists are however allowed to do what’s called ‘power bleaching’ with strong hydrogen peroxide bleach up to 25% hydrogen peroxide, providing you with instant results in just 60 minutes.
Before your treatment begins our dentists will assess your teeth and may recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned by us to remove any plaque build-up and ensure optimum results. Once your whitening session is completed, teeth need to be re-mineralised otherwise they could end up more stained than when you started. We will re-mineralise your teeth after your in-chair Zoom whitening treatment.
