At Joe D. Arbutante, DDS, we recommend Zoom DayWhite take-home kits for fast and reliable results.

DayWhite 14% The most dramatic results for a healthy, white smile. Philips Zoom DayWhite 14% Hydrogen Peroxide is best for patients who want dramatic results and prefer to wear their trays for a minimal amount of time. Wear time: 30 minutes daily. Optimum results within two weeks.

How do you use Zoom Day White 14?

Wear time: Due to high concentration, start with a 15-minute wear time twice a day. If no sensitivity occurs, follow regular wear time instructions of 30 minutes, twice a day for 10-14 days.

How often do you use Philips Zoom Day white?

To use the DayWhite system, apply once per day for two weeks, and leave the trays on for 30 minutes to achieve optimal results.

How long do you leave zoom whitening on your teeth?

Insert the tray over the teeth and gently wipe away any excess gel. Do not leave any gel on the gums because this will cause irritation to your gums. Wear the bleaching trays with the gel for 2 hours. Use all the bleaching gel given.

Is Philips Zoom good?

If you’re willing to pay out for a professional-grade treatment, Philips Zoom is definitely worth it! The Philips Zoom teeth whitening system is backed by years of research and positive reviews. It’s trusted by cosmetic dentists all over the country.

Should I brush my teeth after the teeth whitening procedure?

It’s safe to brush your teeth after applying whitening strips. Just be sure to do it gently to avoid irritating your gums. Another option is to brush your teeth before using whitening strips. This is ideal for removing plaque, which can get stuck beneath the strips.

What not to eat after Zoom?

Avoid any dark-staining drinks or foods such as coffee, red wine, red pasta sauce, broccoli, chocolate, soy sauce, tea, fruit juice and fruit (except for bananas, apples, and pears). Mouthwashes/colored toothpaste also need to be avoided for 24 hours.

Can zoom whitening damage teeth?

Enamel erosion, the leading cause of tooth sensitivity, is highly unlikely with Zoom tooth whitening. In fact, it would be safe to say that whitening teeth with a store-bought kit is much more likely to do irreversible damage to the teeth.

Teeth Whitening FAQ

Does tooth whitening cause permanent tooth sensitivity?

Sensitivity from tooth whitening is always transient. If there is any sensitivity caused by the whitening, it goes away within one to two days after the treatment, and the patient returns to the state of sensitivity he or she had prior to starting the whitening process.
Most people are candidates for tooth whitening, but again, each situation is unique, and it’s best to contact your dental professional.

Typically you can expect whitening to last from six months to two years, although some studies report results lasting up to 10 years. Avoiding red wine, coffee, and smoking—all of which can cause staining—helps preserve the results.

Yes, many studies have proven that tooth whitening is safe. You can protect your tooth enamel by using calcium sulphate and fluoride.

Prices vary widely for tooth whitening. Over-the-counter kits can cost as little as $20, with extensive in-office procedures approaching up to $1,000. If you want professional whitening, expect the price to be around $300 to $800. If you want an at-home bleaching kit from your dentist, expect to pay between $300 and $600. Learn more about dental insurance and financing.

Tooth whitening has little or no effect on restorative materials such as porcelain or crowns, but it may temporarily reduce the bond strength between enamel and composite restorations. This is why it is a good idea to check with your dental professional before beginning any course of tooth whitening.

Products developed from carbamide peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, and urea (substances found in every human cell), should be used cautiously to alleviate concern. Those who have issues are the ones who don’t follow instructions and overuse the products for months or years.
