Frequently Asked Questions About Philips Zoom! WhiteSpeed In-Chair Whitening
What should I expect?
You will need an examination to ensure you are suitable for whitening. It is also advisable to have your teeth cleaned before the treatment, which lasts approximately one hour.
You will lie in the dental chair with a soft mouth guard in place to protect your lips and ensure you are in a comfortable resting position. The gums, cheeks and lips will be protected so the whitening solution can be applied safely. Once the product is on your teeth, the Philips Zoom! Lamp is used to activate the whitening agent.
There will be four 15-minute sessions of whitening during the hour-long appointment. You will also receive custom-made whitening trays and a take-home whitening kit to top-up your smile when needed.
How long does the process take?
Philips Zoom! In-Chair treatment takes approximately an hour but could be up to two hours with a consultation and cleaning.
Is the procedure safe?
Yes. Studies have shown that when carried out by a professional using EU compliant products, whitening is safe for your teeth and gums.
Will it be uncomfortable?
Your mouth will be in a comfortable resting position during the procedure and you will still be able to swallow. There is also little to no sensitivity reported, however you may experience an awareness of the whitening happening.
What are the side effects of whitening?
The most common side effect is sensitivity. All Philips Zoom! products contain special ingredients (potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate) that are proven to help reduce sensitivity, protect enamel and improve the lustre of teeth for a brighter smile.
How long will results last?
Whitening treatments help reduce existing discolouration, but through food, drink and lifestyle choices they can discolour again. Maintenance whitening at home can help combat this along with routine hygiene appointments.
What causes discolouration?
Red wine, coffee, tea and dark coloured foods/drinks all contribute to staining. Some medications, ageing, smoking and trauma can also cause tooth discolouration.
How much does it cost?
£500 for a two-hour appointment. This includes a cleaning and stain removal session.
Frequently Asked Questions About Philips Zoom! Home Whitening
How does it work?
You will come into the surgery for a clean and stain removal before we fit you with custom-made whitening trays. You'll choose from DayWhite or NiteWhite, depending on when you want to wear the trays. You then wear the trays at home for two weeks.
How long will it take to see results?
Your custom whitening trays will arrive in about a week, and then you can spend the next two weeks wearing them. You should start to see results within a few days.
How does it work?
The whitening gel is absorbed into the tooth, where it whitens from the inside by dissolving stains. The ACP formula delivers sensitivity management and enamel protection.
Is it safe?
Yes, clinical studies have shown that whitening your teeth under the supervision of a dental professional is safe for teeth and gums. The formulas provided are EU compliant.
What are the side effects?

How long will my whitening last?
Whitening helps to reduce existing stains but lifestyle factors can cause teeth to become discoloured again. Maintenance whitening and routine hygiene visits can help combat recurring discolouration.
