Tooth whitening enhances the brightness of natural teeth, but it’s not for everyone. Discuss it with your Dentist before you take action, especially if you have:
Discolored or sensitive teeth
White spots or decay on your teeth
A bridge, crown, or other dental work (especially involving front teeth)

The lifespan of whitened teeth can range from 3-6 months, depending on the type of treatment used and your consumption of food and drink that can easily stain teeth (such as blueberries, coffee, and tea).
After a thorough exam of your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure, your Dentist will tell you whether tooth whitening is a safe option for your smile. If the agreed-upon treatment is an in-office, Dentist-supervised treatment, we will:
Prepare your mouth by covering your lips and gums so that only your teeth are exposed
Apply a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth
Expose your teeth to a special light for 15 minutes to help the gel penetrate and whiten your teeth
Invite you to watch TV or listen to music as you relax in the chair
Reapply the gel and light treatment two more times
Your total tooth whitening treatment time is 45 minutes. This process is performed by a professional teeth whitening dentist. Teeth whitening from a Dentist is beneficial since it is natural teeth whitener process.
A radiant smile for a confident you
The complete procedure takes less than an hour, but a regular teeth cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Zoom teeth whitening session
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.
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. And unlike over-the-counter options, your dentist will work hand in hand with you until you’re completely satisfied with your results.
You will be given a Zoom home-use touch-up kit that includes custom-fitted whitening trays. Follow your teeth whitening dentist’s instructions for when and how to use this touch-up kit.
To help maintain the whitening effects of your Zoom teeth whitening treatment, your dentist may advise you to avoid certain foods and beverages, or consume them in moderation to avoid staining your teeth. This includes tea, coffee, red wine, cola, etc.
Additionally, tobacco products will stain teeth, even after whitening treatments. As such, your dentist will suggest you quit using them. Maintain an appropriate oral hygiene (brushing and flossing) regimen to prevent stains from reforming, and see your dentist and hygienist regularly for scheduled teeth cleanings.
