Zoom Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening can provide a dramatic difference in a short amount of time.
In-office whitening treatment uses a laser to facilitate the whitening process and allows the dentist to customize aspects of the treatment to the patients needs.
Why should I whiten through my dentist?
The most common concern is temporary teeth sensitivity, but lots of advances have been made in recent years to help combat this. Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed has adjustable intensity settings to help maximize patient comfort. Also, Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite have a special formula with built-in potassium nitrate and ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), which are known desensitizers. These special ingredients make your enamel smoother and more lustrous as well. We highly recommend that you brush with a sensitivity formula toothpaste for two weeks prior to whitening, and that you take ibuprofen on the day of your treatment.
What are the possible side effects?
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist is your best resource to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips Zoom® at-home whitening products have two mild desensitizing agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimize tooth sensitivity.
What kind of results should I expect?
While results vary from person to person, your smile will be noticeably whiter with Philips Zoom. With Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed, you can get up to eight shades whiter teeth in one 45-minute office visit. Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite offer a dramatically whiter smile in one to two weeks.
How long will my whitening results last?
That’s all dependent on your genetics and habits, but generally around a year. Avoid foods or beverages which can stain your teeth, such as coffee and red wine. Smoking can also limit your results. We recommend brushing with a whitening toothbrush to help maintain your results.
