We all know that brushing our teeth often is a good oral hygiene practice because it removes plaque and tartar buildup, and keeps our gums healthy. Still, brushing is simply not enough to create the kind of gleaming, bright smile we all would like to have.

The new Phillips Zoom WhiteSpeed uses the latest LED light technology to emit 100% greater intensity than the other light-activated whitening systems.

Teeth Whitening FAQs
How long is the teeth whitening procedure?
The Zoom Whitening procedure is simple and painless. Your teeth will be up to eight shades whiter in about an hour. We recommend a cleaning to start and then we prepare your mouth for the whitening procedure by isolating the lips and gums. The proprietary Zoom Whitening gel is applied to the teeth, which is activated by a specially designed light.
Can dentures be whitened with Zoom teeth whitening?
No. Dentures can not be whitened with normal teeth whitening procedures. Dental restorations such as dentures, crowns, and dental bridges are made of stain-resistant material. This material is not affected by whitening gel or teeth bleach.
How long does Zoom whitening last?
The results of teeth whitening will vary based on each individual. Most patients can expect Zoom teeth whitening to last up to a year or more. Touch-up treatment every four to six months can help extend the results of your treatment. Visiting the dentist regularly and avoiding smoking and dark foods will also help keep your teeth brighter, longer.
