Teeth Whitening/Zoom Teeth Whitening
Professional Zoom Teeth Whitening in Melbourne for a Brilliant Smile
Not only is dental staining and discolouration an aesthetic downer, but it can also tax your confidence — which is where Zoom whitening comes in. Before discovering dental whitening, you likely held back your beautiful smile and became the master of the thin-lipped grin. Stress over stained or discoloured teeth can negatively impact your life, but it doesn’t have to. Here’s everything you need to know about the Zoom whitening services available at our dental clinic in Melbourne.
Dental Staining Causes
Dental staining and discolouration are a natural part of life and can happen due to age, diet, disease or tobacco consumption. As you age, your teeth can become discoloured as their enamel becomes thinner. There are also many foods and drinks that can stain and discolour those pearly whites. Soft drinks and coffee are among the common culprits.
Staining and discolouration can also happen due to specific medical conditions or dental trauma. Moreover, tobacco can yellow and stain your teeth, as well as cause gum disease.

Do I Need Whiter Teeth?
Your smile is a window into your personality. While your physical health won’t be worse for forgoing dental whitening, your self-confidence may take a hit, leaving you shying away from showing off your smile to others.
First dates, special events and job interviews don’t fare well with hidden smiles and compromised confidence. If you have any such occasions on the horizon, there’s never been a better time to undergo a teeth-whitening treatment in our Melbourne-based dental clinic.
What to Expect
Our teeth-whitening program with Zoom involves a gentle and safe dental whitening process that is used around the world. Whitening products often consist of a strong hydrogen peroxide gel and a specialised lamp that restores discoloured enamel caused by ageing, food, drinks and bad habits.
The specialised lamp allows the peroxide to break down, enabling oxygen to set into the enamel and brighten teeth up to eight shades whiter. The Zoom dental whitening process is completely pain-free and doesn’t take long to perform. Our experienced teeth-whitening dentists in Melbourne are known for gentle and safe care when it comes to dental whitening, as well as general excellence in cosmetic dentistry.
For 24 hours following the Zoom teeth-whitening process, avoid the use of:
- Nicotine: Cigarettes, cigars, vapes and other tobacco products
- Teeth-staining foods: Red meat, chocolate, all fruit and berries, and dark sauces
- Dark, staining drinks: Coffee, tea, wine, beer and fruit juice.
- Coloured toothpaste and mouthwash: White toothpaste and clear mouthwash is acceptable.
When it comes to what you can eat, white foods will be your friend. For the first 24 hours after you’ve received Zoom teeth whitening from our Melbourne clinic, you should eat a diet containing some or all of the following foods:
- Pasta and rice
- Chicken breast
- White sauces
- Water and milk
- Egg whites
To ensure your smile stays bright and white between treatments, try using bleach tubes from Zoom. You can use these with custom whitening trays, which you can purchase from our dental hygienists or our friendly reception team in South Melbourne. For continued stain removal and the healthiest teeth and gums, look for a power toothbrush like the Sonicare DiamondClean or FlexCare. They’re proven to remove plaque better than manual brushes, helping you to maintain your beautiful white teeth and smile!

Commonly Asked Questions
It’s recommended that you have our dentist assess the health of your gums and teeth to determine if Zoom teeth whitening is suitable for you. Your dentist will advise you on what the best course of action will be prior to starting the treatment.
For the most part,Zoom teeth whitening at our South Melbourne clinic is safe, but it must be applied correctly. Since a bleaching agent is involved, some possible side effects of a teeth whitening procedure can include gum damage, teeth feeling sensitive and irritable, and bleeding in the oesophagus and stomach if you swallow the bleach. This is why it’s imperative that you receive professional teeth bleaching in Melbourne.
There is no such thing as permanent teeth whitening, but teeth whitening usually lasts for several months. You can undergo further whitening treatments when your teeth eventually start naturally experiencing discolouration again. Results will vary from patient to patient.
After undergoing Zoom teeth whitening, Melbourne patients are recommended to not do any of the following, since these activities can affect teeth whitening and cause additional staining on your teeth:
- Drink coffee, tea, red wine or soft drink
- Eat highly coloured foods (such as berries and beetroot)
- Use mouthwash
The teeth whitening cost at our Melbourne clinic varies from patient to patient and is dependent on the specific procedures required. Professional teeth whitening can cost more than at-home treatments, but since these procedures are being performed by a teeth whitening dentist, costs related to this will be more than worth it due to the results. Our teeth whitening dentist in Melbourne will provide you with information relating to teeth whitening prices during your appointment.
