Facts on teeth whitening

Dentists are the only health professionals who can efficiently and effectively whiten your teeth with a whitening gel for the maximum amount of time being just over sixty minutes.

Beauty salons are only legally permitted to use a whitening gel of varying content for 20 to 40 minutes. This will not whiten the teeth just remove surface stain. This makes the teeth appear whiter.

Dentists are the only professionals who are legally permitted to use a 25% peroxide to guarantee the best and the whitest result. Only a Dentist has the knowledge of true teeth whitening. i.e. that by re-shading the tooth from the inside will provide that long lasting white and the correct shade.

A Dentist knows that these optimum results can only be attained by using the Zoom Light and Gel.
