ZOOM! whitening is the whitening product of choice at the Cobourg Dental Hygiene Clinic. ZOOM! continues to be one of the fastest and best whitening systems. It is completed in the office, in a few hours. See how ZOOM! compares to other whitening products.


Before commencing with any whitening treatment, your teeth and health must be assessed. Your teeth, to ensure they are clean and free from bacteria accumulation and stain; as well as being decay free; your health must be assessed to ensure there aren’t any medical contraindications to treatment; such as pregnancy, lactating mothers, diabetes, or taking any medications which are considered ‘photo’ sensitive.


With any whitening product, you may experience some tooth sensitivity; these issues will be addressed at the consultation appointment.


While ZOOM! is the preferred whitening agent, it may not be the product of choice for you; and for that reason we also offer a very safe and reliable take home whitening system. The DAY white or NIGHT white system is manufactured by the same company which offers the ZOOM! whitening – Discus Dental. The day or night white system is a take home system completed in the comfort of your own home. Impressions are taken at the consultation appointment, take home trays (thin, plastic, and easy to wear) are fabricated at the office within a week. The ‘kit’ comes complete with six syringes of whitening product, your trays, a shade guide, and instruction for use. This whitening process is completed at home over 10 to 14 days. Results are not immediate, but will be noticed within a few days (usually 4 to 6); and optimum results at 14 days.


With all whitening products clients should ideally refrain from the consumption of any staining products.


All hygiene services delivered at the Cobourg Dental Hygiene Clinic will be safe and effective. Universal infection control procedures are strictly adhered to for the safety of the clients as well as the clinicians.
