Here’s some information on whitening with Philips Zoom Whitespeed, the whitening method of choice at Bucktown Wicker Park Dental.
Professional vs. over-the-counter
There are over-the-counter whitening options, so why not just choose one of those and make life easier? Well, whitening with Philips Zoom Whitespeed involves the use of a powerful whitening gel with the active ingredient hydrogen peroxide. Over-the-counter options sometimes also use hydrogen peroxide-based gels, but Philips Zoom Whitespeed’s gel has a higher concentration.
What does that mean? It’s simple. A higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide equals more effective whitening results. Also, getting a professional whitening allows you to have the expert team at Bucktown Wicker Park Dental weigh in. They can supervise your procedure and make sure your whitening results come out natural looking.
How teeth whitening works
During teeth whitening, a team member carefully applies the hydrogen peroxide-based gel into a tray. The patient then bites into the tray, which protects the gums, and the whitening gel spreads across the surface of the teeth.
The genius of Philips Zoom Whitespeed is its use of special LED light technology that helps activate the whitening gel. The light-activated system helps deliver results that are 40% more effective than comparable procedures that don’t use the light. It also accelerates the process and gets patients back to their busy schedules faster.
In all, the procedure lasts for an hour. The LED light shines on the teeth for three 15-minute periods spaced throughout the hour. After this quick and simple treatment at Bucktown Wicker Park Dental, patients can brighten their smiles by up to eight shades.
Teeth whitening results should last at least 1-2 years, if not more. Depending on how well patients care for their teeth, the incredible results can last even longer. Trying to limit the consumption of stain-causing beverages, such as red wine and coffee, is a good way to prolong whitening results.
The safe teeth whitening option
While some tooth sensitivity is a potential risk following a whitening procedure, it’s nothing to worry about. 99% of patients surveyed experienced little to no tooth sensitivity following a Philips Zoom Whitespeed procedure. Furthermore, the team at Bucktown Wicker Park Dental takes special precautions to ensure patients don’t experience any discomfort during or following a professional teeth whitening.
