Which Tooth Whitening Method Is Best For Me?

April 7, 2020

Professional teeth whitening is known for being a far more effective treatment than any available at-home whitening treatments. The higher strength of bleach, professional application, and use of the latest technologies ensures that patient safety and exceptional results are the main focus while the effects are proven to be longer-lasting than any alternatives.


There are many different techniques available for professional whitening. Two of the most popular are DaVinci Teeth Whitening and Zoom Teeth Whitening. Here's what you need to know about these extremely effective methods for transforming the color of your smile.


DaVinci Teeth Whitening

The DaVinci teeth whitening system uses the latest LED cold laser technology combined with its signature whitening gel in order to yield superior whitening results. Their signature whitening gel is a little different than other solutions since it uses a unique organic plant and mineral formula with built-in enamel building and strengthening qualities. This ensures that there are no changes or damage caused to the structure of your teeth. Patients also find that they have little to no sensitivity following treatment – something which is very common in other whitening systems.


What happens during DaVinci teeth whitening?

Each DaVinci whitening session takes between 20 and 60 minutes depending on your individual circumstances, making it simple to fit them into your weekly schedules. Once you are settled into the chair, your dentist will carefully apply the whitening gel to your teeth before positioning the LED laser so that it activates the gel and triggers the start of whitening. Patients can sit and relax while the painless treatment takes place. When completed, the dentist simply rinses the gel off and you can go about your usual daily activities


What results can I expect from DaVinci teeth whitening?

The DaVinci teeth whitening system can brighten your teeth by up to 14 shades, with an average improvement of up to 8 shades each session. However, individual results will vary depending on how your teeth respond to treatment. With proper care and periodic boosting treatments, it is possible for patients to sustain the results of their treatment indefinitely.


Zoom Teeth Whitening

Zoom teeth whitening is also a fast and effective way of improving the color of your teeth. Like DaVinci whitening, Zoom whitening also ensures that patients have minimal to no sensitivity following treatment. As its name suggests, Zoom is ideal for patients who are looking to achieve dramatic results as quickly as possible.


What happens during Zoom teeth whitening?

Zoom teeth whitening usually takes less than an hour, but a professional dental clean is recommended prior to the whitening appointment so that your teeth are as clean as possible before beginning to help ensure that you get the very best and most consistent results. The procedure starts by covering your lips and gums so that they don't come into contact with the bleaching agent. The gel is then applied to your teeth followed by the Zoom light which activates the whitening process. This lasts for 15 minutes during which time you can relax, listen to music, etc. Patients undergo 3 x 15-minute sessions of whitening, totaling 45 minutes within their one-hour session. This helps to ensure the greatest results in that single session.


What results can I expect from Zoom teeth whitening?

The intensive nature of Zoom teeth whitening means that the results that many patients can achieve the ideal color of their teeth in just one round of 3 x 15-minute sessions. You will also be given an at-home Zoom touch-up kit to help you to maintain your results.
