Amongst the most successful methods of tooth whitening available in the UK is the Zoom! Advanced Power technique. This impressive dental treatment can whiten teeth by up to ten shades, leaving the patient with a dazzling white smile worthy of a movie star.
What the procedure involves
The main advantage that Zoom whitening has over other tooth whitening systems is that up to ten shades of lightness can be achieved in just one short visit to the dentist. There is no need for repeat visits or top up applications.
The dental practitioner will begin the procedure will a short preparation to cover the lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. Special Zoom whitening gel will be applied to the teeth and then heated with Zoom! Advanced Power lamp. The lamp activates the gel, allowing the substance to penetrate deep into the tooth thereby removing stubborn stains.
The whole process takes less than an hour, and the results can be seen immediately. However, many patients find the optimum results appear an hour or two later.
Typical costs and prices
The cost of Zoom tooth whitening in the UK varies from dentist to dentist. On average, expect to pay in the region of £200 to £300 but don't be surprised to find some dental clinics charging £500 and upwards.
