Safe Teeth Whitening at Crescent Dental

Safe Teeth Whitening

We often see patients in the clinic who, despite having no major dental issues, are unhappy with the shade and appearance of their teeth.

Past use of certain oral antibiotics, as well as lifestyle habits like smoking, frequent coffee drinking or regular amounts of red wine stain teeth and leave them looking grey or yellow.

We offer a choice of whitening treatments, performed in the clinic or to take home, to restore your smile and your confidence. Crescent Dental use the internationally popular Zoom! System after careful research on safety and patient satisfaction.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Zoom! Laser Teeth Whitening System is the market leader for in-surgery teeth whitening, as it is the only system to provide a variable intensity to tailor the treatment for each client.

Patients with sensitive teeth are understandably wary of teeth whitening, as unregulated home bleaching kits and strong lasers can leave people with aching teeth and damaged enamel.

Zoom! is safe, can be customised to your needs and can whiten teeth by up to eight shades in a one-hour visit. It won’t give you an unnaturally fluorescent Hollywood grin; instead Zoom! will bring your teeth up to their maximum natural shade, to complement your skin tone and flatter your appearance.

Zoom! Whitening is the preferred system at Crescent Dental for safety, efficacy and brevity of treatment; your upper and lower teeth can be whitened in one treatment. The system includes desensitisers to help minimise the sensitivity of your teeth during the process, and to protect your enamel.

The Zoom! In-Office Procedure

When you’re in a comfortable position in the chair, your gums and lips will be covered using a plastic shield, which also serves to hold the lips back a little out of the way.

A gel is applied to your teeth, then the Zoom! Light is positioned over your teeth to activate the gel. The gel penetrates the teeth to eradicate discolouration, breaking down stains and bringing teeth to their ultimate natural brightest shade. The treatment will usually last for around 1 hour.

Zoom! Home Whitening

Zoom! NiteWhite is one of the best home whitening systems on the market globally, and gives a gorgeous white smile in seven to fourteen days. It’s safe and comfortable, and people are delighted with the results.

Unregulated home whitening systems are never recommended by dentists, as they can damage your gums and your enamel.

Zoom! NiteWhite contains amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP); clinically proven to reduce sensitivity, protect enamel and help improve the lustre and smoothness of the teeth. Your dentist at Crescent Dental will take impressions of your teeth to make a perfect moulded tray, tailored specifically for your teeth and gum line.

Every day you apply a little of the whitening solution into your dental tray, and as it fits over your teeth perfectly, the solution only comes into contact with the teeth and no damage is done to your delicate gum tissue.

Zoom! Home Whitening kits come in a variety of strengths and concentrations to suit your requirements; the tray can be worn at any time of the day that suits you and you’ll notice the difference after only a couple of uses.
