Zoom teeth whitening in Melbourne by Richmond Fine Dentistry

We enjoy having a reputation for providing one of the best cosmetic teeth whitening treatments in Melbourne. Our professionally trained team love creating beautiful, white smiles. We always aim to give our patients honest, upfront assessments in any dental procedure. Teeth whitening procedures are no different: we ensure we offer a teeth whitening outcome that suits both the health and budget of all patients.

Further, we commit to delivering the best available teeth whitening service, which is why we’ve partnered with Philips to provide the Zoom teeth whitening product.

Zoom is an innovative laser teeth whitening system, using light-accelerated teeth bleaching technology. Zoom is a reputable brand, certified by the Australian Government Therapeutic Goods Act as safe to administer for whitening purposes.

Additionally, only dental practitioners can legally sell or use stronger hydrogen peroxide bleach, allowing us to provide ‘power bleaching’. Walk-in whitening clinics in retail centres are prohibited from administering the stronger bleach options.

How to whiten teeth?

‘How do I get whiter teeth?’ is a question we hear more and more at our Melbourne dental clinic. For the fastest whitening results, we offer in-chair laser whitening to achieve up to 8 shades lighter in about 90 minutes. Or, if you prefer to achieve the same results from the comfort of your own home and don’t mind it taking longer, we also offer the Zoom home teeth whitening kit. Patients using the at-home kit may take 7–14 days to achieve maximum results.

It takes longer to whiten your teeth at home because the hydrogen peroxide bleaching agent we supply in the kits operates at a regulated level. Dentists have the training to apply a higher concentration of peroxide than you could buy in over-the-counter whitening kits. However, staff at beauty salons and retail whitening premises don’t have the extra training to use hydrogen peroxide at higher concentrations to speed up the process.

So if you are looking for a brighter smile in less time, an in-chair whitening treatment, under the careful supervision of a dental practitioner, is the best way to go.

Zoom In-chair teeth whitening

Teeth whitening at the dentist remains the fastest option with our Zoom in-chair teeth whitening. It works by wearing specially fitted trays on your teeth filled with Philips Zoom unique hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. Once we fit the trays to your teeth, we apply a special UV light to accelerate the whitening process.

We carry out four consecutive sessions of 15 minutes each to achieve up to 8 shades lighter. Your brighter smile in less than 1.5 hours. 

To maintain those dazzling, whiter teeth, we recommend using the Zoom do-it-yourself teeth whitening kit at home.

At-home Zoom teeth whitening kits also use trays filled with whitening gel applied to your teeth to lighten and whiten the enamel. The bleaching agents are not as strong as in-chair whitening products, so the kit needs to be used for 7–14 days to achieve similar results. However, noticeable improvements of up to several shades lighter are usually seen after just a few treatments.

Possible side effects of teeth whitening

We will always do a teeth whitening consultation before undertaking any teeth whitening procedures to check that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening products. For example, if you have red or bleeding gums, cracked teeth, cavities or worn or damaged tooth enamel, we may suggest we fix these issues before applying any whitening treatment. We want you to achieve a healthy and consistent result.

Zoom whitening gel is proven safe and doesn’t impact the health or weaken the enamel of your teeth. The hydrogen peroxide or carbide peroxide used in whitening systems may temporarily increase the sensitivity of your teeth, but this usually subsides quickly without any intervention. We stock a range of products to help you reduce dental sensitivity. One of our dentists or friendly staff will be able to help you with extra assistance if required.

Also, be mindful if you have had crowns or veneers on your teeth. Whitening products won’t whiten these surfaces, which may result in a colour variation on your teeth. If you have veneers or caps on any of your visible teeth, talk to us about matching your whitening.

Beware of cheap or foreign teeth whitening products

You can purchase other teeth whitening products online which contain peroxide. These products will lighten the colour of the tooth, but they can also burn the gums and cause a lot of sensitivity if they are stronger than certified strength or if they’re administered incorrectly.

“We had one instance where a client came in with green teeth after using a whitening product they had purchased overseas, so check that your whitening kits are safe and have been tested and approved by the Therapeutic Goods Act. Without that approval, you don’t know what you are putting in your mouth and into your body,” says Judy Harper, Business Manager.
