Tooth whitening

Whitening and brightening your smile is a lot easier than you may have thought. It doesn’t take a lot of time or money. There’s no discomfort. The procedures we use at Cameron&Co can’t damage your teeth. And the results are excellent and long-lasting. 

Cameron&Co offers two options for whitening your smile.

Home whitening
Cameron&Co’s home whitening program enables you to whiten your smile yourself, in your own time and place. Your Cameron&Co home whitening kit includes tooth whitening solution and custom-made plastic trays that perfectly fit your upper and lower teeth. 

An impression is taken of your bite. From this, your whitening trays are fabricated. You simply place a small amount of the whitening solution in each of the trays and fit them to your upper and lower teeth. The solution gently whitens the enamel surface of your teeth.

You can easily apply the trays and solution yourself for an hour daily over 12 to 14 days, or as advised by your dentist. You can then do a touch-up procedure, under the supervision of your dentist, every one to three years, as required.

This whitening procedure is widely practised and does not harm your teeth. 

Zoom chairside whitening
The Zoom tooth whitening system offers all the benefits of conventional tooth whitening – but without the fuss and without the wait.

The procedure is performed by your dentist, using a tooth whitening agent and a special activating light. It takes just a little of over an hour, and there’s no discomfort. The results are instantaneous, long-lasting and very impressive. 

It’s a whiter smile, without the wait!

Pre Zoom – five days before treatment – apply GC Tooth Mousse twice daily. Place the mousse directly onto the teeth, or use a mouth tray. This will help to reduce sensitivity.

Stop using the GC Tooth Mousse 24 hours prior to the procedure. 

After Zoom apply the mousse twice daily for three to five days, as required. 

If you experience sensitivity, take two paracetamol tablets prior to going to bed. (We recommend paracetamol, rather than ibuprofen, as paracetamol is safer for the majority of patients and doesn’t produce photosensitivity reactions.)

To maintain results
Your teeth will be more susceptible to staining for 48 hours following treatment. To maintain results, avoid any potential staining agents for at least 48 hours.  

For example:
