Teeth Whitening
Event

One of the key features of an attractive smile is glistening white teeth. At Ghauri Dental Centre we use the renowned Zoom Advance Technology System which is a form of laser whitening.

 What is teeth whitening?

Like hair and skin, teeth vary in colour. Some are yellower or darker than others, even when they are quite healthy. Teeth also tend to discolour with age. Tooth colour can be very effectively lightened with Hydrogen Peroxide (bleach), used on either the outside or inside of the tooth. Tooth bleaching is completely safe as long as the bleach does not touch your gums otherwise irritation will occur.

What will my dentist/hygienist do?

There are two ways of bleaching the outside of teeth. One takes place at home and the other in the dental surgery.

 Home Zoom bleaching works like this:

The dentist/hygienist will give you weak bleach jelly to use at home in a tray which fits closely around your teeth. The tray makes sure that the jelly does not irritate your gums. You will need to place the tray in your mouth for a few hours on several occasions, as instructed by your dentist/hygienist (probably over a period of a week). The dentist/hygienist will need to use a putty-like material to make moulds of your mouth (called “impressions”), so a dental technician can make the tray to fit. At your next appointment, your dentist/hygienist will check the tray fits and show you how to place the bleach in the tray at home.

Zoom Laser Teeth Whitening in our Dental surgeries works like this:

The dentist/hygienist will use a stronger bleach jelly than is used for home bleaching. This method is used to bleach all the teeth at the same time. The strong bleach will touch the teeth for less time than with home bleaching. The dentist/hygienist might protect your gums. They will paint the bleach onto the teeth and either shine a special light at them or just leave the bleach on the teeth for some time. The bleach is the washed off with water. Your dentist/hygienist will make a note of your tooth colour using model teeth in different shades before they treat you. Look at the colour match yourself before the treatment, so you can compare it with the previous colour. Your teeth may be sensitive to hot and cold food and drink for a few days after bleaching.
