LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT WHITENING
With so many different whitening products on the market, it’s easy to get confused. Here are the facts you need to know before getting your teeth whitened.
HOW LONG WILL MY TEETH STAY WHITER?
The effects of whitening are thought to last up to three years. However, this will vary from person to person. The effect is less likely to last as long if you smoke, or eat or drink products that can stain your teeth. Our clinical team will provide you with their opinion before you start the treatment.
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks or just through natural ageing, your teeth may eventually become discolored again. Philips Zoom at-home whitening products have been shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
IS TEETH 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.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Our clinical team will ensure that you are a suitable candidate for whitening and advise upon the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips Zoom at-home whitening products have two mild desensitizing agents to minimize tooth sensitivity.
WHAT CAUSES TEETH TO DISCOLOR?
There are many causes for tooth discoloration. Some of the most common include the consumption of certain foods and drinks (berries, coffee, tea, red wine). Some medications, ageing, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth discoloration.
HOW LONG BEFORE YOU SEE THE RESULTS?
With Philips Zoom Chair-side procedure (undertaken in our Treatment Suite) you can achieve up to 6 shades whiter in 1 hour! With Philips Zoom Take-home kits the results are not as instant, but you will still have visibly whiter teeth in 3 days and fantastic results after 2 weeks. It is important however, that the instructions and advice of the clinical team are specifically followed, to ensure you obtain the maximum results.
DOES WHITENING HURT?
Everyone responds differently to whitening, and sensitivity is sometimes a side effect of whitening treatments. Our clinical team will be able to advise you upon the best sensitivity toothpaste before and after your treatments. Where necessary, a mild desensitizer to further minimise sensitivity will also be explained.
