Your smile is one of the most expressive parts of your face. Your smile can tell people a lot about you, your confidence, and your emotions. If you are embarrassed or self-conscious about the look of your smile, then teeth whitening with our Zoom laser whitening system may be right for you.
Over time, your teeth can become stained or discolored because of a number of different reasons such as age, dark foods and drinks, tobacco, genetics, antibiotics, fluoride, chemicals, and trauma.

The Truth About Teeth Whitening
With so many different whitening products on the market, it's easy to get confused. So here are the facts you need to know before you commit.
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.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist is your best resource to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips Zoom at-home whitening products have two mild desensitizing agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimize tooth sensitivity.
What's the difference between OTC whitening solutions and Philips Zoom?
Over-the-counter whitening products are not customized to your needs. With Philips Zoom, the whitening process is tailored to your needs by your dentist, with custom-fitted trays for at-home treatments or just the right light intensity and duration in the dentist's office.
How long will my Zoom whitening results last?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks or just through natural aging, your teeth may eventually become discolored again. Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discoloration. Only Philips Zoom at-home whitening products include ACP, which has been shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
What causes teeth to discolor?
There are many causes of tooth discoloration. Some of the most common include the consumption highly colored foods and drinks (berries, coffee, tea, red wine). Some medications, aging, smoking, and trauma can also cause teeth discoloration.
How long does it take?
With Philips Zoom, your teeth will be visibly whiter in one day. With Zoom in-office, you will achieve up to eight shades whiter in 45 minutes. With Zoom at-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve the same great results in one-two weeks, depending on the concentration of formulation and wear time you select.
