Teeth Whitening Preston
About Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening has a long history and has evolved into one of the most popular aesthetic dental treatments available. In fact, many Dental Professionals consider teeth whitening the safest cosmetic procedure available.
How it works:
- A Dental Professional here at Sharoe Green will ensure your gums are protected with a special covering during the procedure
- A pH booster swab will be applied to your teeth, followed by our unique EU Compliant Zoom gel formula.
- The gel is activated using the WhiteSpeed lamp to break down stains
- After 4 x 15 minute sessions you will see visible results and be provided either our DayWhite or NiteWhite take-home kits to continue your whitening at home.

With so many different whitening products on the market, it’s easy to get confused. So here are the facts you need to know before you commit.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist is your best resource to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips Zoom at-home whitening products have two mild desensitising agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimise tooth sensitivity.
What’s the difference between OTC whitening solutions and Philips Zoom?
Over-the-counter whitening products are not customised to your needs. With Philips Zoom, the whitening process is tailored to your needs by your dentist, with custom-fitted trays for at-home treatments or just the right light intensity and duration in the dentist’s office.
How long will my Zoom whitening results last?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks or just through natural ageing, your teeth may eventually become discoloured again. Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discolouration. Only Philips Zoom at-home whitening products include ACP, which has been shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
What causes teeth to discolour?
There are many causes of tooth discolouration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly coloured foods and drinks (berries, coffee, tea, red wine). Some medications, ageing, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth discolouration.
How long does it take?
With Philips Zoom, your teeth will be visibly whiter in one day. With Zoom in-office, you will achieve up to eight shades whiter in 45 minutes. With Zoom at-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve the same great results in one-two weeks, depending on concentration of formulation and wear time you select.
As stipulated by the GDC, tooth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment which must only be carried out under the advice and supervision of a qualified dental clinician.
This is a treatment which can produce exceptional, long-lasting results, but for the sake of the health of your teeth and gums, it is essential that you are not tempted to purchase an 'over-the-counter' whitening product. It is just as imperative that 'power whitening' or 'in-surgery whitening' providers are avoided as these variations of the treatment are no longer authorised.
You can rest assured that the dentists at Sharoe Green Dental Practice are all qualified to be able to deliver expert advice on the best and safest methods of home teeth whitening available.
When you visit us for your consultation, your clinician will discuss with you in great detail what this type of treatment entails. You will be given comprehensive information on what happens both during and after the procedure, and will be given a realistic projection of the results you should expect.
Whether you are interested in having your teeth whitened for a special occasion or are just looking to add some sparkle to your smile in general, book your consultation through the website today.
Any teeth whitening treatment should always be carried out by a GDC qualified professional dentist. Always be sure to check the credentials of the practice/dentist advertising the provision of Tooth Whitening treatments. The dentists at Sharoe Green are highly qualified with many years of experience in offering tooth whitening so you can be sure that you’ll receive only the best experience with us.
