This past week, we were dazzled by the red carpet and envious of those smiles we had seen at the Academy of Country Music. Many of those celebrities featured used the ‘Zoom Whitening Technique.’ So, we went to Destiny Dental to find out about the technique since so many of you want that “Award Show Smile” on your wedding day or upcoming big event.
What is it?
A 45-minute teeth-whitening treatment administered by Destiny Dental. The treatment uses a light-activated bleach which can whiten teeth by up to eight shades. Moulds are also made for home whitening allowing you to top up the gleam factor in the comfort of your own home!
What’s the process?
Rubber moulds are made of your dental profile before a consultation takes place. After you’ve decided on which shade works best with the aid of some nifty color matching, you and your soon-to-be-new head turning smile are placed in a chair before lasers get to work on your pearly whites.
As the bleach in the whitening gel can burn gums and damage the skin inside the mouth, a protective gel is administered to prevent burning around the teeth before the whitening gel is painted onto the tooth enamel. New whitening gel is applied every 15 minutes helping to break up stains and whiten teeth.
Sounds a bit surgical?
The teeth-whitening gel is packed with Hydrogen Peroxide which is triggered into activity using a special light. The bleach and light used as a combination speeds up the breakdown of stains and discolouration on the tooth enamel. As the whole thing is administered by a dental surgeon the risks are minimised.
What are the benefits?
A brighter, whiter smile. As teeth can be lightened by up to eight shades in just 45 minutes, the results do have something of a wow factor about them.
How long does it take?
Including an inspection and consultation my Zoom teeth whitening takes about an hour.
