Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening Treatment

Dr. Dham has completed special training courses on the effective use of Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening. Zoom teeth whitening offers amazing results and can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades in just 1 hour! The process uses a special light and hydrogen peroxide gel to penetrate into the tooth enamel. The product will break down deep stains and discoloration while not harming your teeth.

We can take years of stains off your teeth in no time using the Philips Zoom Whitening System. Our dentist will apply a protective barrier onto your gums to protect them from the peroxide gel. Then she will use a special light to activate the whitening process. Depending on your desired outcome, we may recommend touch-up treatments.

Zoom Whitening is the fastest way to brighten your smile and offers beautiful results. Visit our dental office for a quick and effective way to whiten and brighten your smile before an event.

Take-home Whitening Kits

Some patients prefer gradually whitening their teeth on their own time. Take-home teeth whitening kits allow our patients to whiten their teeth from the comfort of their own home. Patients notice beautiful results in about a month using our professional grade whitening gels and custom whitening trays.

Take-home professional whitening trays offer superior results compared to over-the-counter options. Take-home kits are more affordable than in-office whitening options and also reduce tooth and gum sensitivity. Patients can also use take-home kits to touch up their in-office whitening, after results begin to fade.

Teeth Whitening Aftercare

During the first 48 hours following teeth whitening, the surface of teeth are particularly porous and prone to staining. We recommend that patients avoid acidic foods and drinks, as well as anything that is dark in color. These foods include coffee, soda, ketchup or tomato paste, red wine, and citrus fruits.

Sensitivity to hot and cold drinks is common following teeth whitening treatment. However, temporary sensitivity should go away within two days. We also recommend that you refrain from smoking and using tobacco products as they are one of the leading causes of tooth discoloration. Smoking and chewing tobacco can also negate all effects of your teeth whitening procedure.

What should you do before teeth whitening?

Before undergoing a teeth whitening procedure, you must first treat any cavities and plaque buildup. We do not recommend teeth whitening if you have periodontal conditions including tooth decay, gingivitis, gum disease, and exposed tooth roots. All these issues can affect your results, so address them before getting a whitening procedure.

Can I whiten my dental restorations?

No, teeth whitening does not work on dental restorations and prosthetics. Porcelain and the majority of cosmetic bonding materials are resistant to conventional whitening methods. Restorations like porcelain veneers, dentures, crowns, or dental implants, will not respond well to any teeth whitening technique. Cosmetic bonding and composite tooth-colored fillings do not get brighter with teeth whitening either.

Can I drink coffee through a straw after teeth whitening?

Yes, we recommend using a straw to sip coffee (and any other beverage that is dark in color) after a teeth whitening procedure. By reducing the amount of time the liquid is in contact with your teeth, you are decreasing the likelihood of staining your teeth. Do you have more questions about our teeth whitening services?
