Achieve Your Brightest Smile with Philips Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
Stained, yellowed, or dingy teeth can make an otherwise beautiful smile appear lackluster. An in-office Philips Zoom!® teeth whitening treatment can help patients at Beacon Place Dental Group brighten their smile up to eight shades in a 45-minute appointment. Our Brookline, MA dental office is the number one cosmetic practice in the Boston area. We have been providing high-quality, unparalleled dental services to our community for over 17 years.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
The whitening gel used for our in-office treatments contains 25 percent hydrogen peroxide. When the gel is applied to the teeth, the oxygen molecules work to break down the bonds that cause staining and bleach the dentin below the enamel. Light activated for dramatic results, Zoom! teeth whitening can be fully customized to achieve your desired shade.
What to Expect during Your Teeth Whitening Appointment
When you arrive to our office for your teeth whitening appointment, our hygienist will first remove all surface stains and debris. This allows for full contact of the bleaching agent for optimal results. Next, a barrier is placed over the teeth to protect your gums, lips, and cheeks from irritation. The whitening gel is then applied to the teeth and activated with an LED light for approximately 15 minutes. The gel is rinsed off and reapplied; this process is repeated until the desired results are achieved. In most cases, the entire treatment can be completed in about 45 minutes.
The most significant benefit of Zoom! in-office teeth whitening is the quick treatment time. While over-the-counter strips can take weeks to achieve the desired results, Zoom! can attain the same level of whiteness in a single appointment.
Benefits of Philips Zoom! Teeth Whitening
The most significant advantage of Zoom! in-office teeth whitening is the quick treatment time. While over-the-counter strips can take weeks to achieve the desired results, Zoom! can attain the same level of whiteness in a single appointment. In addition, whitening strips are not made to fit your smile, and can therefore result in uneven coverage. Because Zoom! is applied by a dental professional, patients can enjoy thorough results. Zoom! in-office teeth whitening has been proven safe and effective and is approved by the FDA.
Maintaining Your Results
The results of professional teeth whitening will not last forever. However, long-lasting results can be achieved by following a few simple guidelines:
- Attend routine dental appointments. Regular dental cleanings can help remove surface stains as well as plaque and tartar. This will help keep your teeth and gums healthy and your smile looking great.
- Consider take-home bleaching trays. Occasional touch-up treatments may be necessary following your in-office appointment. However, this can often be achieved through at-home whitening. We can fabricate custom bleaching trays for patients considering this option.
- Reduce or eliminate staining foods and beverages. Dental stains can be significantly reduced by avoiding foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, colas, fruit juices, and berries. If you must drink dark-colored beverages, such as tea or coffee, sip through a straw. This will help reduce the amount of time that the staining agent is in contact with the teeth.
- Avoid all tobacco use. The negative effects of smoking are far-reaching. In addition to wreaking havoc on your oral and overall health, tobacco products also cause staining and diminish the results of teeth whitening.

I had a hard time trusting dentists in general since my last visit to one. Dr. P. really made me change that. The dental hygienist and dental assistant are great, very gentle and caring. Not to mention their state-of-the-art equipment and cleanliness. I would definitely recommend everyone to give them a try.- A DexKnows Reviewer
