Teeth are naturally white – or nearly so. They come in many shades, but the overall impression of brand-new teeth (such as those of small children) is shiny, translucent, white.
Unfortunately, over time, as teeth become more absorbent, they can become dull and discolored from coffee, tea, wine, berries, cigarettes, medication, excessive fluoride, or just normal aging.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
If you dream of returning your teeth to their original whiteness, consider our Teeth Whitening service. This choice is best for healthy, original tooth surfaces, especially if the undesirable color is yellowish. Zoom lightens enamel and dentin. Naturally, it will have no effect on caps, crowns, or other artificial surfaces, so the color needs to be carefully monitored.
ZOOM Teeth Whitening System
At Markham Street Dental, we use the ZOOM teeth whitening system, the ideal solution for busy professionals. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Compared to home whitening methods, this method is fast, long-lasting, and especially gentle on sensitive teeth and gums.
– There is a short preparation, to protect lips and gums.
– We apply Zoom whitening gel and turn on the Zoom light, which combines ultraviolet and visible light to increase the power of the gel.
– After 15 minutes, you’ll have a short break, followed by two more 15-minute sessions.
The whitening effect lasts up to three or four years, as long as you continue your good dental hygiene and regular professional cleanings.
