Yes. Clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums. Always ensure that products are EU compliant.
The most common side effect is tooth and gum sensitivity. Your dentist will be able to advise you on whether you are a good candidate for whitening and they can also ensure that you are using the right concentration of whitening formula.
Philips Zoom! whitening products contain 2 mild desensitising agents, potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP), which are proven to reduce sensitivity.
Whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, but through consumption of coffee, soft drinks, or through natural ageing, your teeth may become discoloured again. Maintenance whitening at home can help combat recurring discolouration. Philips Zoom! whitening products also include ACP, which has been shown to reduce whitening fade back.
There are many causes of tooth discolouration. Some of the most common include the consumption of highly coloured foods and drinks such as red wine, coffee and tea. Some medications, ageing, smoking and trauma can also cause tooth discolouration.
With Philips Zoom! take-home, when used as instructed, you will achieve great results within 1-2 weeks, depending on the concentration of formula and wear time you select.
