In order to suggest which option would be most suitable for your teeth, it is important that you come in for a consultation so that we can evaluate present color and gum condition, and other factors that may affect the outcome.

Zoom! In-Office Whitening System
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System is the ideal choice for the busy individual looking for immediate results. Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure that is safe, effective and very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be significantly whiter with an average improvement up to 8 shades.
The procedure begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. The Zoom! Clinician then applies the proprietary whitening gel, which was designed specifically to be used with the Zoom! light. The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up the stains and discolouration. During this time you can relax, watch TV or listen to music. The gel is applied for 3 fifteen minute sessions for a total treatment time of 45 minutes. Finally, you go home with your whiter, brighter, Zoom! smile.
*A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom! Whitening sessions. New patients are required to have a complete examination.
Take-Home Bleaching Trays
Take-home bleaching trays are an excellent option for patients requiring flexibility in their treatments. You can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, and do touch-ups whenever you want – even while on vacation. Best of all, refills of the bleaching gel can be purchased directly at our office.
During your visit, an impression of your teeth is taken so that the right custom-fitted tray can be made. We will then select an appropriate bleaching gel for your teeth, which can range from a fast-acting 10 minute gel, or a gentler solution (designed for sensitive teeth) that is safe enough to fall asleep in. Results can often be noticed right after the first application and maximum teeth whitening results generally occur within 14 days of treatment.
