Philips Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a popular and effective way to whiten your teeth several shades lighter and to achieve a brighter smile that you'd be proud to smile about!
We offer Philips Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment at our practice where you have the option to have an in-practice teeth whitening session including a home kit, or we have home kits only available to take home as well. Philips Zoom! teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to whiten your teeth.
Here are some common questions answered on Philips website:
Is it safe? 'The safest way to whiten teeth is by using gel prescribed by a dental professional'
Some products that are available to buy can contain harmful ingredients such as lemon juice, citric acid and bicarbonate soda (instead of a whitening ingredient) which dissolve stains and can be damaging and harmful to teeth in the long term. Therefore, it is best to ask advice and have professional treatment done by one of our Philips ZOOM! Dentists.
Why is Hydrogen Peroxide not harmful?
'Professional products contain safe levels of hydrogen peroxide which are more effective, gentle on enamel and custom made.'
Hydrogen Peroxide is absorbed by the tooth and turns the tooth white from the inside as well as removing stains from the outside by breaking down colour molecule instead of using dissolving ingredients. This is why the results vary between patients because it works with your own natural tooth and it's colouring.
Will it hurt?
'Some sensitivity is normal however this can be reduced dramatically with the addition of desensitizing agents.'
Zoom! take home kits have a desensitizer gel know as ACP. 'Twice as many users/patients reported no sensitivity when using NiteWhite ACP versus whitening without ACP.' ACP reduces sensitivity and doesn't compromise the end result of your teeth whitening.
