Tooth discolouration is the unaesthetic loss of the natural brightness and pearly white appearance
of the tooth mostly due to consumption of staining substances like coffee, tea, coloured drinks,
tobacco, red wine and so forth. Consumption of antibiotics like tetracycline , certain antibiotics or
excessive fluoride in the drinking water supply can lead to such displeasing changes.
Light activated Teeth Whitening using Philips Zoom Whitening is a bleaching process that lightens the discolouration of the enamel and the dentine whilst protecting the gums using special coverings and then hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is used.
The Philips Zoom Whitening gel - Hydrogen peroxide gel breaks down into stain fighting radicals that break the molecular bonds making up stains on and in your teeth. The intense light of the zoom Whitening LED accelerator shining on the whitening gel makes these stain-fighting radicals whiten faster thus providing a fast, safe and effective way of whitening your teeth.
Teeth whitening is safe for everyone except for children blow 13 years of age and pregnant and lactating women. The whitening results can be maintained by counting with brushing twice daily and flossing and refraining from consumption of stain inducing foods/drinks/habits for quite sometime to avoid any recurrence of stains.
