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 discoloured 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 discolour?
There are many causes to tooth discoloration. Some of the most common include the consumption highly coloured 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.

An affordable dental clean treatment can help to reduce staining.
If you want your smile to be the best it can possibly be, you could choose to go for Airflow Tooth Polishing.
Airflow is a private treatment that results in whiter cleaner teeth than you have ever had before and all without the dentist or hygienist actually touching your teeth!
It works through the combined power of three things air, sodium bicarbonate and a jet of water. To get the best results some prior de-scaling may be required, but Airflow produces great results without any risk of damaging your teeth. We will be able to advise you whether or not you need de-scaling when you pay us a visit. The results are immediate you we feel and see the difference as soon as the Airflow dental treatment has been completed. Imagine how good it will feel to walk out into the world knowing that your teeth have never looked better.
Tea and coffee drinkers will know the effects that their choice of beverage has on their smile. Teeth that used to be white end up looking brown. Smokers will experience a similar result. But with Airflow one treatment can get rid of all the plaque and discoloration that those habits have left behind. And you will feel no pain either a fresh clean feel or a great taste of mint are the only two after effects. And a great smile of course.
We hope that you continue to stay well and are coping with the current situation.
