Philips Zoom At-Home Teeth Whitening Kits
Richmond Fine Dentistry also offers professional teeth whitening solutions in the comfort and privacy of your own home using Philips Zoom DayWhite at-home teeth whitening kit.
Philips Zoom DayWhite Take Home Whitening Kit
- Pre-whitening consultation
- Custom-made gel trays
- 6 whitening gel syringes
- 9.5-14% strength hydrogen peroxide (as assessed by a dental professional)
- Maximum results in 7–14 days
During the pre-whitening consultation we will determine the strength of hydrogen peroxide that is suitable for your teeth. At times we may recommend another brand such as Opalescence Tooth Whitening Gel. Opalescence contains carbamide peroxide bleaching agents. Carbamide peroxide is about a third of the strength of hydrogen peroxide but is more stable and the process takes longer. Both hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide have been clinically proven to be effective teeth whitening ingredients. You can be assured that we will always make the choice that is the healthiest option for you.
How to Get Whiter Teeth at Home
At-home teeth bleaching is applied using custom-made whitening trays, similar in appearance to a sports mouthguard only much finer. This will ensure they fit snugly over your teeth, allowing for maximum contact with your tooth’s enamel while still protecting your gums.
We will provide you with instructions on how to use your Philips Zoom teeth whitening gel and trays, including the amount of gel to apply in your trays and how long they should be worn, so you can achieve maximum results. It is possible to achieve the same final result using the take-home system as the in-chair treatment, however as the gel is not as concentrated it takes longer. A noticeable improvement can be seen after just a few days, but it may take 5–12 days to achieve your desired shade.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe for Enamel?
The whitening gel we choose has undergone extensive testing to ensure it is completely safe for your teeth and gums. The only side effect some patients may experience is some sensitivity to the teeth, this should only last for several hours following the completion of your treatment. The most common cause of ongoing sensitivity is from wearing your trays too long or overfilling the trays with gel.
Should you experience severe tooth sensitivity while using your at home treatment, discontinue application for several days. The use of desensitising toothpaste and Tooth Mousse can alleviate the problem of sensitivity and toughen your enamel at the same time. If sensitivity continues, contact the Richmond Fine Dentistry office immediately for advice.
