Don’t waste your money and time on supermarket whitening products. We use Philips ZOOM! whitening products to provide both professional in-chair tooth whitening and take-home whitening packages.
Combine both in-chair and take-home whitening for a bright white smile you can maintain at home, or, benefit from in-chair and take-home all year round with our Whitening Journey package where you can receive a free take-home whitening syringe at each 6 month dental hygiene appointment.
With our professional level tooth whitening treatments patients may achieve brighter whiter teeth than if they use supermarket treatments. Our in-chair treatments are provided by our professional dental staff ensuring optimal safety, comfort and results.

Over-the-counter vs. from a dentist
On the face of it, teeth whitening products are cheaper from the chemist. All you have to do is turn up, casually peruse the aisle, and then select the product which sounds good.
However, these products rely on the consumer to be more interested in the quick-fix solution rather than a healthy, natural-looking result.
These products also rely on the consumer not understanding, or not knowing, how teeth whitening works.
WHAT YOU PROBABLY DON’T KNOW ABOUT TEETH WHITENING STRIPS
An example of good marketing, rather than a good product is tooth whitening strips.
These don’t actually whiten your teeth so much as dehydrate them: which creates the appearance of being whiter. But it hardly sounds healthy, does it?
KEEP IN MIND
Teeth whitening commonly refers to the process of applying a type of bleach to your teeth. When done by a dentist, your gums and face are protected by a rubber dam and the whitening gel is then only applied to the teeth.
There are plenty of reasons for tooth discolouration, and not all of them can be treated with teeth whitening.
Sometimes a stain may require a filling or veneer. Other times it may be indicative of a more serious problem like infected root canals.
By visiting a dentist, you’ll receive the most appropriate (and realistic) treatment for you, designed to improve the appearance of your teeth without compromising your oral health.
How Zoom works
Your gums are carefully protected with a special covering before your Carnegie Dental Group dentist applies the unique hydrogen peroxide whitening gel.
Hydrogen peroxide breaks down the molecular bonds making up stains on and in your teeth.
The light of the Philips Zoom Whitening shining on the whitening gel makes the process work even faster, improving whitening
results by as much as 40% (compared with other in-chair whitening systems).
ZOOM IS ONLY AVAILABLE FROM YOUR DENTIST
Philips Zoom is only available from a dentist to ensure optimum safety and comes in different treatment types and strengths to fit your lifestyle and sensitivity.
TEETH WHITENING TREATMENTS ARE A SUITABLE OPTION FOR PATIENTS WHO WANT TO IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE OF THEIR SMILE.
The results of a teeth whitening treatment will vary depending on the type of staining, so it is important to assess why your teeth are stained and what treatment option would work best for you.
COSMETIC CAUSES FOR DISCOLOURATION
Your teeth darken as you age and there are also many things we regularly do which stain our teeth.
Over time, the outer layer of the tooth, known as the enamel, accumulates stains and becomes discoloured. This is attributed to the consumption of:
¥ Soft drink
¥ Coffee and tea
¥ Red wine
If the cause of your stained teeth is cosmetic, then teeth whitening treatments may be the best treatment option for you.
Whitening your teeth will make your smile appear brighter and more youthful
Teeth whitening or bleaching is offered for cosmetic purposes. It provides a solution to those individuals who have discoloured or stained enamel and are not satisfied with the appearance of their teeth.
