Tooth Whitening

One of the most common dental problems almost everyone faces is the discolouration of teeth/stained teeth. Due to this, a person is not able to smile confidently fearing the social stigma of having stained teeth.

Teeth can be stained due to a variety of reasons including the food/drink that we consume like:

  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • Wine / Alcohol
  • Any food or drink with artificial colours
  • Smoking

Tooth Whitening or Tooth Whitening is one of the simplest and probably the fastest way to whiten your teeth and get that confident smile back.

Zoom Home Whitening

Zoom Home Whitening

Zoom Home Whitening

Philips Zoom! Home tooth whitening kits are a safe and convenient way to get your smile noticeably whiter in one to two weeks. You will get excellent results with little or no sensitivity.

During your initial consultation, your dentist will recommend a whitening product to suit your teeth, and make customised trays that fit perfectly to your teeth so that you get safe and effective results.

Once you have your trays and your kit, you can start whitening. You do this by putting a teardrop amount of the gel into each impression in your trays, gently place the trays over your teeth and leave them for the prescribed amount of time (30 minutes twice a day for Day White and 4-6 hours overnight for NiteWhite). Once the time is up, rinse your trays and your teeth with cold clean water. You will notice the difference!

We also sell Zoom! top-up kits.
