Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist is your best resource to ensure that you are a good candidate for whitening and that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula. Philips Zoom whitening products have two mild desensitising agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), to minimise tooth sensitivity.
How long will my Zoom whitening results last?
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks or just through natural aging, your teeth may eventually become discoloured again.
Maintenance whitening can help combat recurring discolouration. Philips Zoom whitening products also include ACP, which has been shown to help reduce whitening fade-back.
What causes teeth to discolour?

With Zoom in-practice treatment you will see noticeable results in just 1 hour. With Zoom take-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve great results in 1-2 weeks, depending on the concentration of formula and wear time you select.
