Phillips Zoom Home Kits
Teeth whitening that can be fitted in at a time to suit you.
What is at home teeth whitening?
For at Home Teeth Whitening the dentist will first take impressions of your teeth, these are then sent to the laboratory for the technician to make custom made whitening trays. The dentist will show you how to apply the gel to the trays and you will then be able to take them home to complete the treatment at a time to suit you.
Why should I have my teeth whitened?
There are many reasons for having your teeth whitened, and they’re really all about personal choice. You could be suffering a crisis of confidence and be embarrassed to smile. You could have recently quit smoking and want to have your teeth restored to their former glory as an incentive not to start again. There might be a big event coming up such as a wedding or a major milestone. You might want to just treat yourself. The list goes on and on.
Can anyone have their teeth whitened?
Yes and no. For obvious reasons dentists will not professionally whiten the teeth of women who are breast feeding, or children. At your initial consultation your dentist will do a full appraisal of your teeth to assess their suitability for whitening. The enamel will be fully examined and they will also check to see if you have receding gums or sensitivity. Depending on the results they will advise which whitening treatment is best suited to your needs… another reason why home whitening kits should be avoided.
Won’t a home kit do the same job?
In a word… no. Home kits offer a quick fix. But you have no idea if your teeth are suitable for this kind of whitening and the results are short lasting. Repeated use of these kits to keep your teeth white may cause irreparable damage to both teeth and gums. The teeth whitening treatment you receive at your dentists is tailor made for your needs and gives long lasting results.
