Every morning you wake up and faithfully brush your teeth. At night you repeat the process and take the time to floss, so you can remove plaque between your teeth. In addition to this routine at home, you also schedule and keep your biannual dental checkups with Dr. Tamo at Dentistry @ 1881, the dentist Uptown Toronto trusts for comprehensive dental care. We think you deserve a reward for your good hygiene habits. Come to our office and treat yourself to a bright and white smile with Zoom! Teeth Whitening.
Despite all of your efforts at home to take care of your teeth—and of course our very best efforts here at the office of your Uptown Toronto dentist—your smile is unavoidably susceptible to factors that can change the colour of your teeth from white to shades that more closely resemble café latte, cloudy skies or mild mustard. Those factors that contribute to the dullness of your smile include:
- Coffee, tea, red wine, tomatoes and chocolate and other richly coloured beverages and foods
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
- Bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching, which can discolour the biting surfaces of your teeth
- Tooth injury that leaves you with a crack that hides stain-causing debris
- Medications, such as the antibiotic tetracycline and some cancer-fighting drugs
- Your genetic predisposition to having teeth that are more yellow, brown or gray in colour
- The aging process
A Beautiful Smile with Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Before beginning teeth whitening with Zoom!, Dr. Tamo will examine your teeth and gums to ensure your oral health. With that assurance, you may be only one appointment away from a smile that is up to eight shades brighter! While you sit back and relax, one of our skilled hygienists will place a covering over your lips and gums and then apply the Zoom! whitening gel to your teeth. The whitening process is then activated and enhanced by a special light that is directed on your teeth. The entire treatment process takes just about one hour, after which we’ll apply a fluoride-based gel to reduce any tooth sensitivity.
As an alternative to our in-office whitening system, we also offer take-home kits that include custom-fitted mouth trays and professional grade gel. These are also perfect for touch-ups after you’ve whitened your teeth with Zoom! in-office whitening.
