Advanced technology, proven results.
Philips Zoom Light-Activated Whitening System is clinically proven to whiten teeth up to eight shades in 45 minutes… and outshines the competition when it comes to results and efficacy.
In a study, Zoom Light-Activated Whitening System provided over 50% better results than other whitening systems both immediately following the procedure and after seven and thirty days. That’s thanks in part to WhiteSpeed’s advanced LED light technology, which emits at the optimal light spectrum with 100% greater light intensity than the closest competitive lamp. When combined with the pH booster in the whitening gel, our advanced blue LED technology greatly accelerates the whitening process, delivering dramatic results for our patients in just one visit.
The Philips Zoom! DayWhite
DayWhite delivers a noticeably whiter smile after the first use and the most radiant smile in just 7 days.
With our new HealthyWhite technology, DayWhite is proven to improve the surface and luster of enamel while it whitens.
It’s all in the improved formula and also features an enhanced flavour, 25% more potassium nitrate and the triple-power of ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate).
Tooth Whitening – What is it?
Tooth whitening is the process of removing stains and discolouration from teeth and improving their colour through a bleaching process to make them look “whiter”. Like hair and skin, teeth vary in colour. Some are yellower or darker than others, even when they are quite healthy. Teeth tend to get darker as people get older. Teeth sometimes become darker if their roots have been damaged or diseased and the ‘nerve’ has ‘died’.
Tooth colour can be very effectively lightened with hydrogen peroxide (bleach), used on either the outside or the inside of the tooth.
What Causes my Teeth to Discolour?
There are many causes of tooth discolouration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly coloured foods (berriers) and drinks (coffee, black tea, red wine). Antibiotics at a young age, ageing, smoking and trauma can also result in discolouration.
What Are The Benefits?
Tooth whitening (bleaching) improves the appearance of your teeth without removing any of the natural surface of the tooth. Bleaching is a better option than a crown or veneer if you want to lighten the colour of healthy teeth, as placing of crown and veneers involves changing the shape of the tooth.
Who can benefit from tooth whitening & how much whiter will my teeth look?
Almost anyone may benefit from tooth whitening. However, treatment may not be as effective for some as it is for others. Yellow staining from aging, tobacco, dark cola, tea, coffee and red wine will achieve the greatest success with this procedure. Those patients with grey shading may experience less dramatic results, but should be able to expect improvement from this brief procedure. For those patients with severe stains, the use of the Chairside Whitening in combination with take home products will improve results. Whitening will not lighten porcelain, composite or any other restorative material. Patients with bruxism or mal-opposed teeth are harder to bleach.
It is the responsibility of the dental professional to determine if a patient is a viable candidate for this procedure through an oral exam, including a shade assessment. It is important to us to manage patient expectations based on the findings of the oral exam to ensure patient satisfaction.
How Long Will it Last?
Indefinitely; just simply touch up your teeth a few times a year for one or two days or nights. Without a touch up, your teeth will start to re-stain by the same things that caused them to discolour in the first place.
