Your smile plays a big role in making a first impression. These days, many people have been looking to whiten their teeth to achieve that perfect "hollywood smile". Even though there are many whitening kits and strips available at your local drugstore, your best resource for whitening treatments is actually with your dentist!
Only dental professionals have access to professional strength whitening treatments and can ensure that treatment is safe. Whitening treatments done in a clinical setting also tend to reap better results at a faster rate.
Here are a few common questions and answers about Philips Zoom! Whitening:
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for your teeth and gums.
How is Philips Zoom! different?
Whitening treatments available at the drugstore are not customised for you. The whitening process with Philips Zoom! however, is tailored to your needs by your dentist, with custom-fitted trays for take-home treatments or with just the right light intensity and duration in your dentist's office.
How does Philips Zoom! in office treatment work?
Zoom in-office teeth whitening is a procedure designed to lighten the colour of teeth using a combination of hydrogen peroxide gel and a specially designed visible LED light lamp. During the procedure, the whitening gel will be applied to your teeth and your teeth will be exposed to the light from the Zoom lamp for three (3) 15 minute sessions.
How long will my Philips Zoom! results last?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains. However, through the consumption of heavily coloured foods such as coffee, wine, tea or just through natural aging, your teeth may eventually become discoloured again. Maintenance whitening can help prevent and minimise recurring discolouration. Only Philips Zoom take-home whitening products include ACP, which has been shown to help reduce fadeback.
How long does it take?
With the in office treatment, teeth can be up to eight shades whiter in just 45 minutes. With the take-home treatment and when used as instructed, you can achieve great results within one to two weeks.
