Whitening

– WHAT IS IT?

Teeth whitening is a very popular treatment. In general, any adult (with the possible exception of pregnant and breastfeeding women) can undergo this type of procedure.

However, before whitening, other issues such as dental problems, caries lesions, wear and tear, tooth sensitivity, etc. must be resolved.

Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Teeth Whitening

Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed is the most requested professional whitening brand in the world. It whitens teeth by up to eight shades and has superior efficacy and results compared to other professional whitening alternatives.

A highly concentrated whitening gel is used in the procedure, which allows it to achieve the fastest whitening results by up to 40%.

After this outpatient medical procedure, the patient also receives a whitening kit with personalized trays and syringes for maintenance at home, thus enhancing the final result.

Does tooth whitening have side effects? Which ones?

As a rule, the side effects associated with tooth whitening are related to aspects such as the concentration of the products, how they are applied and the characteristics of each patient. These effects can include tooth sensitivity and gum discomfort, both of which are usually temporary.

If the chemicals are applied incorrectly, more serious and persistent lesions can result. It is also important to note that patients who have dental restorations and prostheses may need to replace or repair them after the teeth whitening treatment, in order to restore the color and integrity of the dental restorations.

What precautions should you take before having your teeth whitened?

To ensure safety, teeth whitening should be carried out by oral health professionals to avoid risks.

In addition, before tooth whitening is carried out, it is important to carry out a prior clinical examination in order to take all the preventive measures that will avoid oral complications and guarantee a more effective result.
