Teeth Whitening Q & A
What are the benefits of professional teeth whitening?
Professional teeth whitening with Philips Zoom! utilizes clinical-strength whitening agents to whisk away the most stubborn stains in just minutes. This highly effective cosmetic service is known to be more effective than at-home over-the-counter whitening kits because the bleaching agents can reach the deeper layers.
Because your dentist uses a cheek extractor to pull your lips and cheeks away from your teeth, you won’t have to worry about damaging or irritating delicate oral tissue. Plus, your dentist carefully brushes on the Philips Zoom! whitening solution tooth-by-tooth, so you can expect entirely even, natural-looking results.
How long does professional teeth whitening take?
Philips Zoom! professional teeth whitening treatments from SmileBoutique can take as little as 15 minutes or as long as 45 minutes. After applying the whitening agent, your dentist applies a specialized light to your teeth to activate the solution and help it penetrate deeper.
After about 15 minutes, your dentist checks your teeth and compares them to a shade guide. You have the opportunity to decide if you’re happy with your results or if you want to go whiter. If you’d like to brighten your teeth further, your dentist applies more whitening gel and exposes your teeth to the light again.
The Philips Zoom! treatment process from SmileBoutique can be completed up to three times to help you reach the optimal shade of white for your unique smile.
Is professional teeth whitening permanent?
Professional teeth-whitening treatments from SmileBoutique aren’t permanent, but they are entirely long-lasting. The dental team counsels you on how to care for your teeth (like which foods and drinks you need to avoid) and schedules you for twice-a-year cleanings to remove surface stains.
With good oral hygiene practices, your optimal whitening results can last for up to one to three years. SmileBoutique can even provide Philips Zoom! home kits to help you whiten your teeth between professional treatments.
