What happens on the treatment day?
On arrival, you will be asked by a member of our staff to fill in a medical history form and read through and sign a consent form. You may want to remember or make notes on any questions you have with regards to the information given to you in the consent form so you can discuss them with the dentist providing Zoom.
The dentist will do a basic dental examination to ensure that you are within the criteria of suitable patient for Zoom. Your examination will include radiographs. The purpose of this is to eliminate reasons for complications as much as possible.
The present shade of your teeth will be taken; you will see the shade being compared and help decide on the shade. Photographs will be taken for future reference.
Impressions will be taken from your teeth in order to make whitening trays to be used at home after your Zoom session.
You will be positioned in a comfortable position in agreement with the dentist as you will be in this position for at least 15 minutes. You will be given protective glasses.
Your teeth will be isolated as instructed by the manufacturer of the whitening kit. This will mean that all soft tissue around your teeth including your lips and part of your face will be protected against the harshness of the whitening gel and the light.
Only after all protective measures are taken, the activator of the gel and whitening gel will be applied on your teeth. This will be repeated 4 consecutive times, each time removing the old material and applying a new layer allowing it to whiten your teeth with maximum efficiency under the Zoom light.
What happens after the treatment?
After your treatment, a new shade and photograph will be taken from your teeth. You will be going home with instructions and information for aftercare and your confident new smile!
Your results will be reviewed after your home whitening is finished in a short appointment. And of course you can always contact us if you need to, prior to your review appointment.
