How Does Zoom Teeth Whitening Work?

If you had a chance to read our blog, “What product is better for teeth whitening: Carbamide Peroxide or Hydrogen peroxide?” you would have found out about the ability of the Hydrogen Peroxide to penetrate through the tooth enamel and to lift stains and discoloration by bleaching the dentin part of the tooth. Because Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) gives the best and fastest results, the ZOOM whitening gel is made out of 25% H2O2, a very high concentration of Hydrogen peroxide that only dentists are allowed to use.

The ZOOM Whitening gel is activated and works together with the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Whitening LED Accelerator lamp that uses a proprietary LED light to accelerate whitening for maximum results in minimal time.

Hydrogen peroxide breaks down the molecular bonds making up the stains on and within the teeth. The intense light of the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed lamp shines on the 25% H2O2 whitening gel making the process work even faster and improving the whitening results by as much as 40% compared to just using the gel alone.

Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed lamp is backed by studies that have shown it is safe and effective with 95% of US patients that have been surveyed agreeing that Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Whitening LED Accelerator lamp produced excellent results.

Because of the high concentration of hydrogen peroxide used in this procedure, all the soft tissues of the mouth such as the gums, cheeks and lips are fully covered and protected with cheek retractors and gingival barriers so that the whitening gel does not touch and burn any of these soft tissues. Once the barriers are in place, The Zoom whitening gel is applied on the teeth and the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed light activates it for 15 minutes. The procedure is repeated with fresh whitening gel 3 times, so that within 45 minutes you can literally walk out with whiter teeth up to 8 shades lighter.

During the procedure you can enjoy a nice massage or simply relax and watch something you like on Netflix.

ZOOM Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Is it painful?

A: Philips have been working on a new Zoom Whitening gel that utilize ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), which is clinically proven to reduce sensitivity* and since the introduction of this new gel, we have found considerably less sensitivity with our patients. Still, some patients experience some sensitivity during the Zoom Whitening procedure, and therefore we preventatively recommend a desensitization program prior to coming in for this procedure. For the patients that are more likely to experience sensitivity, we also recommend taking some pain killers such as Panadol before the procedure, to reduce the potential of feeling discomfort and to make their visit more relaxing.  After the procedure, some patients may experience temporary sensitivity to cold, which usually subsides within 24 hours. We will recommend a post-operative program to help reduce the sensitivity and to manage the sensitivity symptoms we provide each patient with the Relief ACP gel.

Q: Is it safe?
A: Phillips Zoom is completely safe.
