Teeth Whitening More than any other physical feature, your smile says more about you and often leaves a memorable impression. With so many alternatives available for a whiter smile, start by asking your dentist at Takapuna Dentists. We have two types of whitening – Zoom Whitening (in surgery) and Opalescence (take home whitening kits). What causes tooth discolouration? The most common causes include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of letracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discolouration.

Who may benefit from tooth whitening? Almost anyone. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. We could decide if you are a viable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral examination, including a shade assessment.

Do many people whiten their teeth? More people than you might imagine. A bright smile can make a profound difference for anyone. The Zoom! chairside Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.

Safety Whitening your teeth, under the supervision of your dentist, has been proven safe in clinical studies over a period of many years.

Zoom Whitening (In Surgery) About the procedure In 45 minutes, Phillips Zoom WhiteSpeed is clinically proven to whiten your teeth up to eight shades. If you want instant gratification, this is your best choice - lean back and relax while your dental professional takes care of the entire procedure.

What to expect Your gums are carefully protected with a special covering, and then our unique whitening gel is applied. Once on your teeth, the gel breaks down into stain-fighting radicals. The intense light of the Phillips Zoom WhiteSpeed Whitening LED Accelerator shining on our whitening gel helps the stain-fighting radicals whiten faster.

Home WhiteningOpalescence Take Home Whitening Gelsallow you to whiten your teeth at your convenience—and in your own home.

Safe Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are only available from your dentist, who will supervise your treatment from initial consultation through completion. The sticky, viscous gel won’t migrate to gums, and most formulations include Potassium Fluoride (PF), which helps to improve oral health by strengthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity prevention.

Effective Powerful, prescription-strength Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are available with 10%, 10%PF, 15%PF, 20%PF, and 35%PF carbamide peroxide. Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels can provide results after just one night, though expect to see results in about a week.

Customized Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are delivered to you via customized bleaching tray. Our dentist will formulate this tray from an alginate impression of your mouth; this customization is part of why Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gels are so effective. You can further customize your Opalescence Take Home Whitening Gel experience by selecting from the five formulations and three flavors (mint, melon and regular).
