Your smile is one of your best assets, so, of course, you would like to keep it sparkling. But even if you brush, use white strips, and visit your dentist twice a year, it may not be enough. With a variety of teeth whitening methods available, whitening your teeth has never been more accessible. Are you dreaming of a white smile?
What is In-practice Teeth Whitening?
This is a teeth whitening procedure that is performed in the dental chair. It is the fastest and most effective way to whiten teeth and usually takes around one and a half to two hours to complete. In-practice whitening is the best option for those wanting ‘instant’ results.
Take-home teeth whitening kits
Take-home teeth whitening kits supervised by a cosmetic dentist is the most popular teeth whitening method. These products contain a lower percentage of peroxide than in practice products and can be worn in a tray overnight or during the day at home. A custom-fitted tray is made to hold the teeth whitening product directly against the teeth while minimizing its contact with the gums.
Smile Dental chooses Philips Zoom whitening technology
Philips Zoom is not only proven to whiten teeth up to eight shades, it’s also completely safe. While other whitening products can harm your teeth and gums, Philips Zoom with Relief ACP actually gives you greater luster and protects enamel.
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 teeth and gums.
What’s the difference between over-the-counter whitening solutions and Philips Zoom?
Over-the-counter whitening products are not customized to your needs. With Philips Zoom, the whitening process is tailored to your needs by your dentist, with custom-fitted trays for at-home treatments or just the right light intensity and duration in the dentist’s office.
How long before you see the results?
With Philips Zoom, your teeth will be visibly whiter in one day. With Zoom in-office, you can achieve up to eight shades whiter in 45 minutes. With Zoom at home you can achieve the same great results in one-two weeks, depending on the concentration and selected wear time.
How the whitening procedure works ?
Our whitening procedure has been perfected through years of experience to give you the whitest teeth the safest possible way. Your gums are carefully protected with a special covering before your dentist applies our unique hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down the molecular bonds making up stains on and in your teeth. The intense light of the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Whitening LED Accelerator shining on the whitening gel makes the process work even faster, improving whitening results by as much as 40%.
