What is Whitening?
Plenty of teeth whitening kits are available over the counter for home use. Almost all of these use compounds which release hydrogen peroxide as the whitening agent. All are supplied with ready-made trays which are filled with the chemical and worn over the teeth for as long as possible. One-size-for-all trays do not properly fit all people, and leakage of the chemical can bleach your gums instead of teeth. To avoid bleaching and harming the gums and other oral tissue, these chemicals are intentionally sold in low concentration. For this reason, home whitening kits cannot be as effective as a professional whitening at a Dental Office.
A dentist is trained and equipped to protect your gums effectively while using a suitably higher concentration of the whitening agents. This not only speeds up the whitening process but also ensures uniform whitening many shades better than home kits.
Philips Zoom! Whitening
Philips proprietary Zoom! whitening system is the most popular whitening system used by professional dentists . It is just a one-hour process and will be completed in a single visit — but the results are really amazing. After only one hour, you can leave with whiter, brighter smile. Although it will cost more than a home whitening procedure, the results will be far superior and longer lasting. For even longer lasting results, the in-office Zoom treatment can be supplemented with an intermittent home treatment using trays custom-made for you.
