Cosmetic Dentistry in London
Cosmetic dentistry treatments have been increasingly gaining popularity over the last decade or so. Of all cosmetic treatments that are available, perhaps teeth whitening is one of the most common and sought after procedures. Every cosmetic dentist usually does hundreds of teeth whitening treatments a year – that’s how popular whitening treatments are. The main reason for undertaking teeth whitening treatment is because for a lot of people, their teeth become stained due to our eating and drinking lifestyles – for example, teeth become stained by the food and drinks we consume, particularly drinks like red wine, coffee and tea. Cigarette smoking also ads stains to the teeth, causing the teeth to not look as bright and white as they usually do. Teeth whitening treatments help to restore teeth to their original whiter, brighter appearance. The teeth whitening process is relatively effective and also simple in lightening the colour of your teeth. The level of whitening that can be achieved varies from one patient to another as the ingredients in the whitening gel work differently for different people. The type of whitening system a patient chooses can also have an impact on the degree of whitening that is achieved.
Teeth whitening can be done in mostly two ways. The most common way to do teeth whitening is home whitening, wherein the patient takes custom made teeth whitening trays and a whitening gel at home, applying the gel at home every day for 2 to 3 weeks. Home teeth whitening systems are very effective at whitening teeth, producing brilliant whitening results. The second way to do teeth whiten teeth is in-surgery teeth whitening; with this procedure, the teeth whitening process is conducted by the cosmetic dentist within the surgery itself, wherein the dentist applies a higher concentration of the teeth whitening gel under close supervision, to quicken the teeth whitening process. The cosmetic dentist sometimes applies a LED light to the whitening gel depending on what teeth whitening system is being used; the LED light is used to activate catalysts in the gel that speed up the whitening process. The LED light is only used with whitening systems that are designed for use with the LED light. Only some in-surgery teeth whitening systems use LED light as part of the whitening process. The in-surgery whitening systems usually takes 60 to 90 minutes, producing excellent whitening results for patients.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
Philips Zoom teeth whitening is a highly popular whitening system, used by millions of patients worldwide to brighten and whiten their teeth and smile. It is performed in two ways – Zoom Home Whitening and Zoom Instant In-Surgery Whitening. Zoom home whitening takes about 2 weeks to complete typically. The patient uses custom-made whitening trays to apply the zoom whitening gel to the teeth during the night or for a few hours during the day. Zoom home whitening provides excellent whitening results to patients. The Zoom In-Surgery whitening procedure is performed by the cosmetic dentist in the surgery, taking a little over 60 minutes to complete. The patient will leave the surgery with an instantly brighter and whiter smile. The Zoom in-surgery system is designed for patients who want to whiten their teeth at the dentist or do not want to whiten their teeth at home over 2 weeks. Zoom Instant whitening produces excellent results, giving patients a whiter, brighter smile in a little over 60 minutes.
