Why Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening?

Philips Zoom Whitening is one of Australia’s most successful in-chair teeth whitening systems. The trusted Philips brand, combined with precision technology and teeth-bleaching solutions, allows for an outstanding in-chair whitening treatment option in as little as 45 minutes.

When patients want to improve the brightness of their smiles in a short timeframe, we recommend Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening.

The Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening Procedure

Consultation

You’ll begin the teeth whitening appointment with an initial consultation to ensure sound oral and dental health, and to assess your dental hygiene. We do this because if your gums aren’t in top shape, you won’t be able to receive teeth whitening treatment. We also agree on the shade of white you would like to achieve.

Preparation & Protection

Our dentist cleans your teeth, removing plaque and debris. Your teeth are now smooth and ready to have the gels applied. You’ll receive an isolation gel to protect your lips and gums from potential irritation, ensuring the whitening gel only contacts your teeth.

Whitening Gel Application

We apply the whitening gel directly to your teeth. The gel contains hydrogen peroxide at the required concentration.

Light Activation

We use a special LED light (Zoom WhiteSpeed) to activate the gel, break down the hydrogen peroxide and accelerate the whitening process. You’ll receive multiple sessions, each lasting approximately 15 minutes. Your dentist may reapply the gel during these sessions, reactivating it with the light.

Monitoring and Post-Treatment Care

Throughout the procedure, your dentist will monitor the whitening progress and your comfort. At the end, we will remove the isolation gel, clean your teeth and may apply a fluoride treatment to reduce tooth sensitivity. You’ll leave our Mornington dental practice with your new, bright smile and instructions for optimal home care.

Benefits of Zoom In-Chair Whitening 

Having your teeth whitened using the Zoom In-Chair whitening treatment provides many benefits, including:

  • Quick results.
  • Professional and safe administration and monitoring.
  • Effective stain removal.
  • Whitening customised to your preferences.
  • Minimal discomfort.
  • Long-lasting results.
  • Improved confidence and self-esteem.

Is Zoom Teeth Whitening right for me? 

If you have tooth discolouration due to consuming large quantities of the following, then Zoom In-Chair Whitening could be an ideal procedure for you:

  • alcohol (especially red wine)
  • tobacco
  • spicy foods
  • coffee
  • tea
  • certain medications.

You will receive an even tooth colour with Zoom treatment, with the removal of these stains.

Further, if you want a brighter, more even-coloured smile and your teeth are not discoloured, Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening is worth considering.

FAQs About Zoom Teeth Whitening

How long does Zoom teeth whitening take?

Expect the entire Zoom in-chair teeth whitening process to take an hour. This includes initial consultation, teeth preparation, gel and light application and post-treatment care.

Does Zoom teeth whitening hurt?

Most patients can expect a comfortable, pain-free experience with the Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening system. The LED WhiteSpeed lamp emits heat, but not at uncomfortable levels.

If you experience tooth sensitivity, you may experience some discomfort during the procedure. We may recommend you choose our Pola At-Home Teeth Whitening option as an alternative, which is gentler on teeth.

How long does Zoom teeth whitening last?

Expect your teeth to remain white between 6 months and 2-3 years. Factors affecting timespan include how frequently you might consume teeth-staining ingredients in food, beverages or tobacco, as well as the level of maintenance you undertake.

Is Zoom teeth whitening safe?

The compounds in the whitening gel, in combination with the LED WhiteSpeed light, do not affect the integrity of your tooth enamel or interior.

The whitening gel can cause inflammation of gum tissue. However, we highly minimise this from happening due to the application of the isolation gel and ongoing monitoring during the treatment course.

Can pregnant or lactating women have Zoom teeth whitening?

We recommend delaying any non-essential dental procedures during pregnancy. This includes teeth whitening.

Is teeth bleaching and teeth whitening the same thing?

Yes. Teeth whitening and teeth bleaching are both terms for the same thing: a brighter, whiter smile achieved by whitening gels.

Will Zoom teeth whitening change the colour of my crowns or bridges?

No. Any replacement teeth won’t change colour with teeth whitening treatment.

How much does Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening cost?

Our In-Chair and At-Home whitening services differ in cost, largely due to individual patient needs and preferences. During the consultation stage, we will provide a quote on the overall treatment cost.

Our In-Chair pricing incorporates ongoing professional administration and monitoring by a dentist during the procedure, as well as hygiene and teeth-cleaning components. The pricing for Teeth Whitening performed at a cosmetic salon won’t include these elements.
