The quickest, easiest way to effectively whiten your teeth is by in-office treatment with Philips Zoom!
The safest way to whiter teeth!
Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a Philips Zoom trained and accredited dentist not only gives you the whitest teeth, it’s also very safe.
Up to 8 shades whiter teeth in 1 hour
Our whitening procedure has been perfected through years of experience to give you the whitest teeth in the safest possible way. Your gums are carefully protected with a special covering prior to the application of the 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%.
Zoom is the only whitening formula that contains a desentitiser to minimise sensitivity, gives you greater lustre and helps protect enamel. As a result, the Philips Zoom tooth whitening treatment has no adverse effect on existing restorations (fillings or crowns) nor does it rub away, soften, damage or weaken the enamel.
Keeping side effects to a minimum
Some people may experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during or after treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after completion of the treatment. The temporary sensitivity can be minimal for some while others may find it to be similar to ice-cream sensitivity. Your will be advised you on any side effects and fluoride gel may be administered to help minimise any temporary sensitivity.
We also offer another option where the whitening can be done at home. This takes 10-15 days and does not produce as good a result as the in-chair option, but can be more affordable. We make custom made trays and provide you with the whitening kit to take home to achieve a beautiful white smile.
REMOVE/MINIMISE “WHITE SPOTS”
Enamel micro abrasion is a proven way to help minimise any white spots (lesions) on your teeth caused by localised decalcification, hypo calcification, demineralisation or other conditions which can cause an irregular enamel appearance.
