Achieve Your Brightest Smile with Philips Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
Stained, yellowed, or dingy teeth can make an otherwise beautiful smile appear lackluster. At Beacon Place Dental Group, we offer in-office Philips Zoom!® teeth whitening treatment to brighten smiles up to 8 shades during a 45-minute appointment. As one of the best cosmetic dentistry practices in Boston,MA, we have been providing high-quality dental services and creating confident smiles at our Brookline, MA, office for over 30 years.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
The whitening gel used for our in-office treatments contains 25 percent hydrogen peroxide. When applied to the teeth, the oxygen it contains breaks down the bonds that cause staining and bleaches 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
At your appointment, our hygienist will first remove all surface stains and debris so that the bleaching agent has full contact with the enamel. Next, we will place a barrier over the teeth to protect your gums, lips, and cheeks from irritation. We can then apply the whitening gel to the teeth and activate it with an LED light for approximately 15 minutes. The gel is rinsed off and reapplied. The process is repeated until the desired results are achieved. In most cases, the entire treatment can be completed in about 45 minutes.
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.
The most significant advantage of Zoom! in-office teeth whitening is its immediacy. 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, because whitening strips are not customized to your smile, they can result in uneven coverage. In contrast, Zoom! is applied by a dental professional who can personalize the results to the patient.
Maintaining Your Results
The results of professional teeth whitening will not last forever. However, you can extend the life of your treatment with a few simple guidelines:
- Attend routine dental appointments: Regular dental cleanings remove surface stains as well as plaque and tartar to keep your teeth healthy and your smile looking great.
- Touch-up results: We can fabricate custom, at-home bleaching trays for patients who wish to maintain their results with occasional touch-up treatments.
- Reduce or eliminate staining foods and beverages: Avoid foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, fruit juices, and berries which cause stains. If you must drink tea or coffee, sip through a straw to reduce the amount of time the staining agent is in contact with your teeth.
- Avoid all tobacco use: In addition to wreaking havoc on your oral and overall health, tobacco products also stain the teeth and diminish the results of teeth whitening.
Staying mindful of your daily habits and adjusting your routine when necessary can go a long way toward maintaining a bright smile.

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
