Professional home whitening with BOUTIQUE

Your dentist will initiate the process by creating a personalised, perfectly fitting tray, which involves taking impressions during your initial appointment. During your second visit, you will be supplied with the custom tray and a supply of whitening gel to be used in the comfort of your own home.

Professional chairside whitening with Phillips ZOOM!

This method is known as chairside whitening or "power whitening." In this procedure, a whitening gel is applied in conjunction with the Zoom! light. The light accelerates the chemical reaction of the whitening product, resulting in more rapid attainment of the desired colour change. Typically, patients experience an improvement of up to an average of eight shades lighter in their teeth.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Is teeth whitening safe?

Thorough clinical research and studies have consistently demonstrated the safety of teeth whitening procedures when conducted under the guidance of your dentist. However, it's essential to note that, as with any tooth whitening product, it is not advisable for individuals under the age of 16, pregnant or nursing women, patients currently undergoing PUVA therapy or chemotherapy, or those with melanomas. If you are taking light-sensitive medications, please consult your physician before proceeding with teeth whitening.

Are there any side effects to teeth whitening?

Certain individuals may experience temporary tooth sensitivity to cold temperatures during or after undergoing professional tooth whitening. Fortunately, these sensations typically subside within a few days following the completion of the treatment.

Your teeth will noticeably brighten compared to their previous shade. Periodic touch-ups, typically required once or twice a year, involve simply wearing your custom trays with the gel for 1-2 days. To optimise and prolong the effects, it's advisable to minimize habits such as smoking, as well as the consumption of foods and beverages that have the potential to stain your teeth.

By diligently adhering to the provided instructions, most individuals typically achieve their maximum desired results within a span of 10 to 14 days of consistent use.
