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 are the 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’s the difference between OTC 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 will my Zoom whitening results last?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks or just through natural aging, your teeth may eventually become discolored again. Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discoloration. Only Philips Zoom at-home whitening products include ACP, which has been shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
What causes teeth to discolor?
There are many causes to tooth discoloration. Some of the most common include the consumption highly colored foods and drinks (berries, coffee, tea, red wine). Some medications, aging, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth discoloration.
How long does it take?
With Philips Zoom, your teeth will be visibly whiter in one day. With Zoom in-office, you will achieve up to eight shades whiter in 45 minutes. With Zoom at-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve the same great results in one-two weeks, depending on concentration of formulation and wear time you select.
With the new Philips Zoom QuickPro whitening varnish, your patients can get noticeably whiter results in minimal time. QuickPro uses a breakthrough two-layer technology to whiten teeth up to four shades* – and takes just five minutes to apply. After 30 minutes, the patient simply brushes or wipes off the varnish.
Whitening that’s part of a scheduled visit
Thanks to the convenience of a five-minute application, any dental appointment can become a whitening appointment as well – especially prophys. With the new Philips Zoom QuickPro whitening varnish, your patients can get noticeably whiter results in minimal time. Once you’re done, send the patient on their way and instruct them to simply brush or wipe off the varnish in 30 minutes.
Professional whitening results with little to no sensitivity
QuickPro’s innovative sealant layer keeps the whitening varnish from getting onto soft tissue, while the low volume formula leads to virtually no sensitivity. You apply the treatment yourself, so you can rest assured your patients will get high-quality professional whitening results that will keep them coming back again and again.
