BLEACHING WITH ZOOM AND BRITE SMILE FROM PHILIPS
ZOOM und Brite Smile
The BriteSmile treatment was developed under the supervision of Dr. John Warner, a former NASA scientist and member of the Hubble Space Telescope Development Project. Dr. Warner also pioneered the development of ophthalmic applications using laser technology.
It is very important to us that you are informed in detail about the various techniques and procedures in order to be able to choose the optimal treatment method. This requires a free consultation with the dentist providing treatment. Only in this way can questions be answered in detail and ambiguities clarified.
A preliminary dental examination of teeth and gums is required, because only healthy teeth and gums can be bleached.
Preliminarily, brush your teeth with a so-called pre-whitening toothpaste. Then the actual tooth colour will be determined and a “before-photo” will be taken.
Gums and mouth are covered with protective products. Then the patented BriteSmile gel is applied. During the following 1 hour treatment you will be constantly monitored by a specially trained team.
After removing all gel residues, we can determine by how many nuances your tooth color has been whitened and prove this by a “after-photo”.
AFTERCARE / CARE
For the next 24 hours, you must avoid tooth discoloring foods and habits. After this time, the protein pellicle (protective layer on the teeth) has formed again.
THE FASTEST AND SAFEST WAY TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR TEETH:
BLEACHING INFORMATION, TECHNICAL DETAILS
Philips’ blue-spectrum light technology and unique, wavelength-specific whitening gel has revolutionized teeth whitening by brightening teeth quickly, safely, and effectively at the same time. In this special cosmetic procedure, a particularly gentle whitening gel is used whose active ingredients – what are known as oxygen radicals – are activated by a special plasma illumination and migrate into the teeth. Unlike other suppliers, it works with a very low concentration of only 15 % hydrogen peroxide, which is particularly gentle on the teeth. Even discoloration that is several years old will be brightened up after treatment. With this method, it is important that a trained dental professional supervise every section of the professional BriteSmile treatment.
The treatment is completely harmless to enamel, dental fillings, and any other dentures. The teeth can be lightened up with 9 shades, depending on the strength of each discoloration. The tooth color can last an average of up to four years with this method, and even longer with special care products.
The bleaching technology includes a special cosmetic procedure in which the active ingredients of a particularly gentle gel, what are known as oxygen radicals, are activated by a special plasma illumination and penetrate into the teeth. This method lightens even lasting discoloration after just one treatment.
IT CAN BE THAT EASY, THE DREAM OF A RADIANT SMILE
The Philips bleaching procedure is considered a safe and risk-free procedure worldwide.
GENTLE AND RESTORATIVE
Philips uses the lowest drug concentration of the whitening gel compared to other products. The success rate is 98 %. No UV radiation is used to activate the drug component.
BriteSmile was the only procedure rated by several independent institutes as “excellent and safe” in the United States (the world’s strictest health policies).
SHORT TREATMENT DURATION
The risk-free treatment takes approximately 1 hour while you relax and recharge your batteries in the White Lounge.
On average, the tooth color lasts up to 4 years. Special care products can extend the durability of the radiant white. You can find out more in our shop. Our staff will be pleased to advise you.
PROFESSIONAL DENTAL CARE
BriteSmile is only used following a professional preliminary dental examination, in which no damage or tooth decay on teeth and gums have been diagnosed.
WHICH REQUIREMENTS DO I HAVE TO MEET?
A professional dental check-up in the White Lounge will diagnose the teeth and gums for damage. In order to bleach your teeth, they must be treated in advance. At the request of the patient, such treatment can be made directly in the White Lounge.
HOW DOES THE BRITESMILE PROCEDURE WORK?
After a cosmetic tooth cleaning, our specialist staff will apply the patented BriteSmile whitening gel to your teeth and activate it with the harmless BriteSmile light irradiation device. After about an hour your unique and natural white will be shining.
HOW WHITE CAN MY TEETH BECOME?
With the BriteSmile technology teeth can be brightened up to 9 shades. However, this depends on the degree of discoloration and your personal life circumstances.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
On average, the tooth color lasts up to 4 years. Good care and moderate enjoyment of tooth-staining foods and nicotine play a crucial role. Special care products can extend the durability of the radiant white.
IS THE BRITESMILE METHOD SAFE?
The BriteSmile treatment does not alter the structure of the teeth, does not damage the enamel, and does not alter fillings. Before treatment, it is important that a professional dental examination and cleaning take place and that the procedure is carried out exclusively by specially-trained personnel.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
The BriteSmile treatment is basically painless. Sensitive patients may feel a faint, dull “pain” after the treatment. In this case, very hot or very cold drinks should be avoided within the first 24 hours. For all patients: Do not consume tooth-staining food or drink for 24 hours and abstain from nicotine.
WHAT HAPPENS TO CROWNS AND VENEERS?
The BriteSmile treatment does not change crowns or veneers. They cannot be lightened as a rule. Only superficial staining can be cleaned.
