Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening
Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening treatment is a popular teeth whitening system used by millions of people worldwide. Philips Zoom teeth whitening kits are a convenient and safe way to get your teeth noticeably whiter in 1 to 2 weeks. The whitening treatment provides professional, affordable teeth whitening results with little to no sensitivity.
Philips Zoomwhitening is offered to patients in two predominant ways – in-surgery instant laser (LED) teeth whitening and home teeth whitening. Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed is the instant in-surgery teeth whitening system, taking a little over 60 minutes to complete. You will leave the surgery with an instantly brighter and whiter smile. Philips Zoom NightWhite and DayWhite are two home teeth whitening systems from Philips. NiteWhite enables patients to whiten their teeth overnight while they sleep and is therefore ideal for patients who prefer to wear teeth whitening trays at night. NiteWhite provides good teeth whitening results in two weeks’ time. DayWhite is preferred by patients who want to wear whitening trays during the day for a short duration of time. Teeth whitening trays need to be worn for 30 to 90 minutes a day, with good teeth whitening results also visible in two weeks’ time.
Zoom Instant Laser (LED) Teeth Whitening
Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed
Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed is the instant In-surgery teeth whitening treatment from Philips; it provides dramatic teeth whitening results in a little over an hour – almost instantaneously. Your teeth can be whitened up to 6 shades lighter in about 60 minutes. The Zoom Instant teeth whitening system will help reverse stains caused by food and wine and other discoloration such as that caused by some medications. You will leave the surgery with instantly brighter and whiter teeth.
Zoom Instant In-surgery teeth whitening (mistakenly called ‘laser teeth whitening’) is preferred by patients who want to have their teeth whitened at the dentist and achieve whitening results for their teeth instantly. The treatment is carried out in the surgery under an LED light from Philips; the LED light acts as a catalyst to activates whitening agents in the zoom whitening gel that the dentist will apply to your teeth, accelerating the teeth whitening process to a little over 60 minutes.
Patients who have teeth shade A2 or less (stained teeth) typically show the most improvement with the Zoom instant in-surgery teeth whitening treatment. Patients who have their starting shades higher than A1 (whiter teeth) will also show improvement to their teeth shade; however, teeth whitening results are not as dramatic given their starting teeth shade was closer to white to begin.
At the start of the teeth whitening process, our dentist will note your starting shade to help compare the improvement in teeth shade after treatment is completed. Following that, the dentist will –
- Prepare your gums and teeth for teeth whitening and apply a layer of zoom whitening gel to your teeth.
- The dentist will then use the Philips Zoom LED teeth whitening lamp to speed up the teeth whitening process. The LED light is applied to your teeth to enable the LED light to act as a catalyst for initiating whitening compounds in the Zoom gel, thus significantly accelerates the teeth whitening process.
- This process is repeated four times to whiten the teeth to the maximum extent possible.
- When the desired teeth shade is obtained, the dentist will then apply a protective post-treatment gel to the teeth enamel to help reduce sensitivity to your teeth.
On completion of the in-surgery teeth whitening treatment, we will provide you with customised teeth whitening trays and also a home teeth whitening kit with whitening gels to take home. The home teeth whitening kit allows you to top-up the treatment at home when it’s desirable.
Zoom Home Teeth Whitening
Zoom Home Teeth Whitening
Zoom Home Teeth Whitening is an option available to patients who prefer to whiten their teeth not at the dentist, but within the comfort of their home. Zoom home whitening is a convenient and safe way to have a whiter and brighter smile in 1 to 2 weeks. Patients will get professional teeth whitening results with little to no sensitivity. Philips provides two home teeth whitening systems to brighten your smile. Each home teeth whitening system has a different strength teeth whitening formula; our dentist can advise what system will be best suited to your needs.
Philips Zoom NiteWhite allows you whiten your teeth overnight while you are asleep. It is ideal for patients who prefer to wear teeth whitening trays at night. NiteWhite gives good teeth whitening results in 2 weeks.
Philips Zoom DayWhite is perfect for patients who want to wear teeth whitening trays during the day for a short duration of time. You will be required to wear teeth whitening trays for 30 – 90 minutes every day, to achieve good teeth whitening results in typically 2 weeks.
Both NiteWhite and DayWhite home teeth whitening systems are applied and used in the same way- the difference is in when to wear the trays and for how long. NiteWhite whitening trays need to be worn overnight and can be removed the moment you wake up. DayWhite, whitening trays need to be worn twice a day – typically once in the morning and then in the evening.
To start the teeth whitening process at home, first brush your teeth thoroughly to remove plaque, followed by the following steps:
- Place a drop size of zoom teeth whitening gel into each impression in the teeth whitening trays.
- Then gently place the teeth whitening trays over your teeth.
- Once the prescribed time is over, take the trays out of your mouth and clean them thoroughly with water.
- Brush your teeth after the teeth whitening procedure.
