What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a procedure that gives your teeth a lighter, whiter color. Most often, teeth whitening is performed at the dentist’s or hygienist’s office with advanced “Philips ZOOM” technology. It is also possible to whiten your teeth at home using dental mouthguards. During teeth whitening, the teeth are covered with a whitening agent, which is activated by the teeth whitening system. Teeth whitening at home is often recommended as additional aid after a professional whitening procedure to achieve the desired result.
Why you should regularly whiten your teeth
Our teeth tend to get darker with age, but many negative factors accelerate this process: poor oral hygiene, frequent consumption of coffee, tea, red wine or other staining foods. Smoking is particularly harmful to your teeth.
Teeth whitening techniques
Laser teeth whitening
During teeth whitening at our clinics, the gums are covered with a special protective substance. a high-quality Opalescence whitening gel is applied to the teeth, reaching the deep layers of the tooth and whitening them. Do not be afraid of discomfort your teeth will be covered by a desensitizing gel as they may be more sensitive after this whitening procedure. In a few days, the sensitivity will fade. Your teeth can even become whiter by several shades, depending on tooth structure and other important factors. Laser teeth whitening, performed at the dentist’s office, lasts up to an hour, so the procedure is fast and the results are very effective. Hurry up and greet the summer with a beautiful white smile!
Philips ZOOM teeth whitening system keeps the tooth structure intact and the pigment particles of organic origin become brighter. It does not damage the structure of the enamel or cause its demineralization – in other words, enamel dissolution, which is very important for dental health. Besides, this procedure not only harmless but also heals – the whitening gel contains calcium ions, which strengthen the teeth, fill the microscopic defects of the tooth surface, increase the smoothness and shine of the enamel and reduce the sensitivity of the teeth. Philips ZOOM professional whitening system provides an effective and safe whitening method with long-lasting results even with a lower concentration of whitening gel activated by a ZOOM lamp. The whole procedure takes a bit more than an hour. With Philips ZOOM, your teeth can be whitened in up to eight shades! ZOOM is one of the safest and most effective aesthetic dentistry procedures proven to be scientifically effective.
