Philips Zoom is a teeth-whitening process, which delivers the best result sans any side effect. One can choose from in-office/chairside or take-home professional whitening treatments that are customized by the dentist. With Philips Zoom in-chair whitening, you can unlock a smile almost up to eight shades whiter in just 45 minutes. This makes Philips Zoom one of the most widely used treatment options to whiten their smiles, and they have achieved noticeable results with little to no sensitivity. It is very smooth on the enamel and causes no harm. So, if you have stained teeth from coffee or tea, this is what you need; a perfect set of white sparkling teeth! And we offer in-office teeth whitening service, where Philips Zoom is prepared to provide a brighter smile in less time than one’s meal break.
Before this process starts, the patient needs to have a proper and comprehensive check-up of teeth and gums and clean a week before the Zoom. Also, the dentist needs to have a discourse with you about your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits to determine if whitening will be right for you or not! The discussion also provides better chances to learn about the techniques that are best for you.
How Does Philips Zoom Whitening Work?
Philips Zoom teeth whitening is an in-office dental procedure that is designed to whiten teeth up within 45-minutes. Here, a concentrated hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied to your teeth by the professional, which helps to break down the molecular bonds that help in creating the stains on your teeth. And once the gel is applied, the dentist will blast your teeth with a blue LED light that speeds up the hydrogen peroxide process to remove stains from your teeth faster. And in this way, the gel is reapplied three times carefully, followed by three blasts of light, lasting 15 minutes each time. And it results in instantly brighter teeth, with little to no sensitivity.
So, here, the patient needs to make two appointments, one to get your whitening tray made, and the second is the actual procedure. The first appointment lasts for around 15 minutes in total, and the second appointment is when you want to get the whitening. The process takes almost 45 minutes in blocks of 15 minutes. The dentist reapplies a gel to reduce sensitivity between sessions and make sure you aren’t in too much pain. When you’ve finished all your rounds, more gel is applied to your premade mouth guards, and you wear that for the next few minutes.
1. The new Philips Zoom QuickPro
QuickPro is helpful if you want to give a quick touch-up to your smile; give affordable and immediate results. The most wondrous part of this is that one needs to spend very little time in the dentist’s chair to get noticeable results, and with a smile up to four shades brighter in only 30 minutes. The treatment takes around 10 minutes to apply, which doesn’t include the whitening lamp so that you are ready in almost no time.
The whole process involves these quick steps:
- The dentist thoroughly examines and prepares your mouth and gums.
- A thin layer of whitening varnish is applied to each tooth, which dries very quickly.
- Followed by a layer of preventive sealant that protects the mouth from sensitivity.
- Then, you can leave your dentist, ensuring to brush your teeth after 30 minutes, wherever you may go.
2. Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed
WhiteSpeed gives drastic and dramatic results in just 45 minutes. With the help of this process, your teeth could be up to eight shades whiter, vanishing stains from food and drinks, aging, or even discoloration from some types of medication.
The steps need to be followed are:
- The dentist prepares your mouth and applies a layer of advanced whitening gel to your teeth.
- To accelerate the process of whitening and to provide you a comfortable experience, the professional will shine the WhiteSpeed blue LED lamp onto your teeth. This step needs to be repeated every 15 minutes.
- Once your teeth reach your desired shade, the dentist needs to spread our post-treatment gel to help protect enamel and reduce the sensitivity of your teeth.
- And once you are done, the dentist will provide you customized whitening trays and a take-home whitening kit.
Is it painful?
The first two blocks of 15 minutes are pretty painless for most people, but as you get the third one, you may feel slight nerved sensitivity in your teeth. If one is getting some pain, he/she probably is someone who has the most sensitive teeth. And these kinds of patients may need the help of painkillers. These patients may use sensitive toothpaste, like Sensodyne, beforehand, or even take a Nurofen to be at the safer side.
To conclude honestly, one out of four people experience zinging pain during the treatment, and it settles down by the next day. But if you are having susceptible teeth and are predisposed to tooth pain, it is something worth thinking a little harder. Porcelain will not whiten if someone had significant dental treatment on his/her front teeth like implants, veneers, or crowns. People who have receding gums, they may probably go for Philips Zoom treatment. Still, there is a higher risk of sensitivity.
And people who have no other significant dental problems except discoloration, Philips Zoom treatment should be your ‘definite try’! Philips Zoom treatment provides whiten teeth, and the results last permanently. You’ll undoubtedly leave the dentist chair with an instantly brighter, more confident smile! For the first 48 hours, you will be pleased to have your pearl-like smile! But the shade may dull down over the next few days. And if one religiously follows the home-kit provided by the dentist and stays away from tea, coffee, and wine kind of stuff, one can be blessed with better shades permanently. And this will undoubtedly light up your personality.
