Review our frequently asked questions about custom-made take-home teeth whitening treatments.
Teeth whitening was discovered about eighty years ago as a side effect of a product that decreased inflammation and bleeding after gum surgery. In 1989, the American Dental Association approved the first teeth whitening product for consumers.
The Philips Zoom whitening procedure uses amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) and potassium nitrate to control sensitivity.
Depending on your lifestyle, you can choose from two options:
DayWhite - Wear the whitening tray for one hour every day. This option takes slightly longer, and you'll see results within two weeks.
NiteWhite - Wear the tray overnight while you sleep. This method is typically quicker than DayWhite, so you'll see results sooner - usually within one to two weeks.
Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) is a special ingredient in Zoom gel that helps protect enamel and control sensitivity. Both potassium nitrate and ACP are desensitizing agents that reduce sensitivity.
There are two major types of stains: intrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic stains result from a change in the internal color of the tooth caused by agents such as fluorosis, certain medications, or from trauma to the tooth. Extrinsic stains result from repeated exposure to substances such as coffee, tea, and cigarettes and affect only the surface of the tooth. Our teeth also become more susceptible to staining as we age.
Generally, colour begins to fade slightly immediately after bleaching, then remains stable for 6 months to a year (sometimes longer). It is recommended that you maintain your results by touching up your smile every 4-6 months.
You will need to maintain your teeth to keep their brightness and shine. Visiting your dentist regularly and avoiding foods and activities that can darken teeth (like coffee, alcohol, sugars, and smoking) will help keep your teeth white and healthy. Consistently using Venus White products as recommended will also help keep your smile bright and beautiful.
All bleaching gel causes some degree of tooth sensitivity that can cause discomfort. This is normal and an expected side effect. If you experience any sensitivity, stop using Venus White for a few days and start again when the sensitivity fades. If sensitivity persists, contact your dentist.
In some cases (like when the bleach is left on for too long), irreversible sensitivity can occur. Only use Venus White teeth whitening products under the supervision of your dentist.
To date, no studies have been done to determine whether teeth whitening during pregnancy is harmful or not.
To be on the safe side, we recommend that you do not use Philips Zoom teeth whitening products to bleach your teeth while pregnant or nursing.
No. If you have any of these on your front teeth, you may want to consider replacing some of them after whitening.
Teeth whitening products have been clinically studied for more than three decades and safely used on millions of patients without harm to teeth or gums.
