You may have noticed, over the years, that the colour of your teeth has changed. Yellowing, stained teeth may have taken the place of a bright, white smile.
This usually occurs over time as the foods and drinks we consume regularly deposit tiny molecules onto enamel, where they settle. Though it may not be easy to keep teeth from becoming discoloured, tooth whitening offers a simple solution to treat discolouration quickly and effectively. Our patients understand the power of professional treatment, and visit Trinity Dental for convenient, effective teeth whitening tailored to their unique needs. This is why we offer two excellent whitening solutions, one that takes place in the clinic, and one that lifts stains gradually over the course of a few weeks in the comfort of your own home.
Home whitening kits were the first used in dentistry, and remain one of the most efficient treatments to date. Although there are benefits to in-office treatment with the Zoom method, home whitening achieves the same beautiful results as same-day treatment. To help you achieve your smile-brightening goals, your dentist will take impressions and craft a custom-fitted tray. You will then receive a supply of Enlighten whitening solution to apply to teeth daily via your trays. A change in colour can be seen in just a few days, with your ultimate results visible in about ten to fourteen days. A benefit of home whitening is that touch-ups are easy with the tray you keep after you have completed your course of treatment.
Zoom whitening is ideal for patients whose time is limited, or who have an important event for which they want to look their best. Zoom has been one of the most popular in-clinic whitening procedures for many years. At Trinity Dental, patients sit back comfortably while we brighten their smiles. Ultimately, patients leave our clinic with an obviously whitened smile that they love.

"Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to enhance your looks. Whether you want to add sparkle to your smile for your wedding day or perfect your look for business meetings, whitening is simple, affordable and safe"
Enlighten whitening is a combination treatment meaning that there is a two week home treatment followed by a one hour visit to the clinic.
Enlighten works by increasing the tooth's permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. This can result in lightening the teeth up to 16 shades.
On visiting your clinician you will have impressions taken in preparation for your custom fitted trays. These are thin and comfortable and are worn overnight for 14 nights. On the 15th day you are booked into the clinic to complete the in surgery session and this will take up to 1 hour.
Enlighten whitening does not change the colour of crowns, restorations or veneers, these would need to be addressed after the treatment is carried out. In most cases these would need to be replaced.
This advanced whitening procedure erases the effects of ageing, coffee, red wine and cigarette staining. Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance, wearing the trays for one night every other month alongside the top up gel and continuing to brush with the Evo- White toothpaste ensures a long lasting naturally bright smile.
Our Zoom Whitening offers a quick yet effective option to whiter teeth, this is a procedure carried out in the clinic that takes approximately 90 minutes and whitens up to 6 shades in just one visit.
Following your consultation, the clinician will simply lie you back in the chair ready to start the procedure. A soft silicone mouth guard is placed to protect your lips and allows you to rest comfortably during the treatment. A whitening solution is applied to the teeth and this is activated by the Zoom lamp, a built in timer is set for the first of four 15 minute sessions.
Once the procedure has been completed signs of any staining will have been instantly reduced leaving you with an outstanding smile. The Zoom treatment can be maintained by whitening at home using the Zoom take home kits, this decreases the chances of the teeth becoming discoloured again.
The Zoom treatment will not whiten crowns, restorations or veneers these would need to be discussed prior to the appointment with the possibility of having them replaced depending on the individual and the area these are situated in the mouth.
Zoom Whitening is a great finishing touch for that special occasion giving you a show stopping radiant smile.
