Teeth whitening is a non-invasive, cosmetic dental procedure that helps remove stains and discoloration on the teeth that are usually caused by pigments contained in various food and drinks, as well as in tobacco. This technique makes the teeth look whiter and brighter.
At The Dental District we use the Zoom Phillips Teeth Whitening, the #1 brand worldwide thanks to its effectiveness, capable of lightening your teeth up to 8 shades safely and quickly. Professional in-office teeth whitening is the safest way to achieve a brighter, whiter smile without the risk of damaging your teeth and gums.
Types of Teeth Whitening
In our clinic, we offer two types of professional teeth whitening:
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In this procedure, a special laser light and a concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel are used; together, they manage to effectively lighten the shade of the teeth, disintegrating all the stains and discoloration that may exist.
The teeth whitening is performed by the dentist and is usually completed in about 1 hour (including teeth preparation and Zoom light application), offering immediate results.
How white can my teeth get during Zoom Teeth Whitening?
Zoom teeth whitening results may vary from patient to patient. For example, teeth that are more stained or discolored will not whiten to the same degree as teeth that were initially light in color. Taking these into consideration, the Zoom technology can lighten up to 8 shades!
How long does the Zoom Teeth Whitening last?
Tooth whitening is not permanent, but it is very long-lasting (from six months to two years). Although tone fading is inevitable, it is possible to slow the process by avoiding certain foods and drinks and quitting smoking.
After in-office teeth whitening, patients can maintain their results by using a professional at-home whitening kit, such as Philips NiteWhite.
Is Zoom Teeth Whitening safe?
Yes. The procedure is performed entirely by certified dentists, who previously do an exhaustive examination on the patient’s mouth to ensure no conditions prevent the treatment from being carried out effectively or compromise the patient’s health.
It is important to mention that these professional whitening products are only available through your dental office.
Am I a candidate for Zoom Teeth Whitening?
Most people are good candidates for this treatment, particularly those with good oral health who want brighter, whiter-looking teeth. However, it is not recommended if there are conditions such as periodontal disease, cavities, or sensitivity; if the patient is pregnant or nursing, or has dental prosthetics that cannot be whitened, such as crowns, veneers, or implants. It is also not recommended for those under 18 years of age.
Does Zoom Teeth Whitening cause sensitivity?
A protective gel is applied before or after the procedure, making 99% of patients experience little or no sensitivity with Philips Zoom. Some patients have experienced a tingling sensation that usually disappears within 24-72 hours. If necessary, the doctor may recommend using a special toothpaste at home after the treatment.
Zoom Teeth Whitening Aftercare: How do I keep my teeth white after the treatment?
To maintain the results of Zoom whitening for longer, your dentist will recommend that you avoid or moderate the consumption of certain foods and drinks that could stain your teeth, such as coffee, red wine, and products that contain tobacco. He will also advise you to maintain an excellent dental hygiene routine and use toothpaste with whitening agents to maintain the treatment results.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Kit
At The Dental District, we have the Philips Zoom Nitewhite kit, which includes a custom guard and whitening gel. Whit this take-home kit, the patient is in control of the treatment, under the instructions and supervision of his dentist.
How to use the Philips Zoom Nitewhite whitening kit?
- Place a drop of whitening gel in each space of the dental guard.
- Gently position the guard on your teeth and leave it on overnight for 8 hours.
- When time is over, remove the guard and clean it well with cold water before using it again.
- Brush your teeth as usual, and voila! You will notice your smile becoming whiter with each application.
To avoid sensitivity problems, the instructions must be faithfully followed, especially regarding the time and amount of product applied.
When will I see the results of the Philips Zoom Nitewhite Kit?
Usually, the final results of the treatment will appear after two weeks; however, noticeable changes can be seen in the first days.
How long do the results of the Philips Zoom Nitewhite whitening kit last?
Your teeth will be white for about six to twelve months, after which they will gradually return to their previous color. You can also prolong the whitening effect by avoiding foods and beverages that stain teeth, such as coffee, wine, and tobacco products.
Does the Philips Zoom Nitewhite whitening kit cause sensitivity?
The Zoom gel in this whitening kit contains two mild sensitivity-reducing agents: ACP and potassium nitrate. While these agents will not completely eliminate the risk of sensitivity, they will make your experience more pleasant than any other at-home whitening treatment.
What type of Teeth Whitening method should I choose?
The one that best suits your needs and lifestyle. For example, if you are looking to wear a perfect smile because you are having an important event coming soon or you just like to save time, then in-office teeth whitening would be ideal. On the other hand, if you are an organized person and you like to do things at your own pace, then the option of the kit at home will be convenient for you.
