Our Services > Teeth Whitening

Your smile is the first thing people notice about you — and when you feel good about it, it shows. To help you look your best we use Philips Zoom, the number one most patient-requested professional teeth whitening brand.

A white bright smile can be a confidence booster and a great way to get noticed, but depending on our everyday choices, we may not have the smile we always wanted.

What causes yellow teeth?
Teeth stains can be genetic, environmental or pharmacological in nature. The most common are surface stains on the enamel or beneath the enamel in the dentin. Surface stains are caused by foods, beverages and lifestyle behaviours like smoking. Over time, surface stains may penetrate the enamel and change the colour of the dentin, which darkens the overall appearance of the tooth due to the translucency of the enamel layer. When this occurs, the tooth often appears yellow.

What teeth whitening options are there?
There are many whitening options, from OTC toothpastes, rinses and strips, to professionally supervised solutions such as Philips Zoom in-clinic and take-home whitening.

How do whitening products remove stains below the enamel?
Whitening products with hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide cause a chemical reaction that breaks apart the carbon bonds that create yellow stains. Once the bonds are broken, they no longer reflect a yellow colour.

Is teeth whitening safe for my teeth?
Some whitening products can irritate your gums or cause undue sensitivity if used improperly or too often. The safest way to whiten your teeth is under the supervision of a dentist who will assess your overall oral health, the history of your teeth. For example, if we know that you are prone to sensitivity, we may recommend a gentle formulation to ensure you get the results you are looking for with a treatment that you will enjoy.

How long does my treatment last?
Most whitening services are designed to last for a long period of time, but relapse is not uncommon due to personal behaviours that restain your teeth.

How do I choose the right Philips Zoom whitening solution?
After your consultation we will recommend a solution that best fits your needs, your lifestyle and your budget. This may be either an in-clinic treatment or a take-home option.

How can I maintain my white teeth after a Philips Zoom treatment?
We will give you instructions for care before and after your treatment. There are several options to maintain your white smile, including: Philips Zoom DayWhite Touch-up take-home whitening, Philips Zoom Whitening Pen and Philips Sonicare DiamondClean electric toothbrush.
