Is tooth 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 dental professional is your best resource to make sure you’re a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right formula. Philips Zoom take-home whitening products have two mild desensitising agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to help minimise tooth sensitivity.
How is Philips Zoom different?
No professional whitening brand is requested by more patients than Philips Zoom.** Dental professionals have trusted Zoom’s advanced technology and superior results backed by robust clinical evidence for more than 20 years.
How long will my Philips Zoom results last?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee and soft drinks or just through natural aging, your teeth may eventually become discoloured again. Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discolouration. Philips Zoom offers a variety of whitening options to help maintain your white smile.
What causes teeth to discolour?
There are many causes of tooth discolouration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly coloured foods and drinks (berries, coffee, tea, red wine). Some medications, aging, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth discolouration.
How long does it take?
With Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed, teeth can be up to 8 shades whiter
in 45 minutes.† With Zoom take-home, you can achieve great results within 1-2 weeks. With Philips Zoom QuickPro whitening varnish, you can achieve a noticeably whiter smile with a 10-minute application and with little to no sensitivity.‡
