The Promise The Philips Zoom professional whitening treatment claims to be able to brighten teeth by as much as eight shades in just one 60-minute session. The treatment uses an LED light to accelerate the whitening process.
Step by Step Our dentist analyses our teeth to make sure they are strong enough to take the treatment. We’re told our teeth have a combination of shades – a one (the brightest natural colour) at the front, with threes behind. The treatment is applied to the front upper and lower teeth. The Zoom light is focused on the teeth at close range at intervals of 15 minutes until the cycle is complete. The sensitivity increases as the time goes on, as the process involves the demineralising of the tooth. Then we rinse our mouth.
The result A much brighter, whiter yet natural-looking set of teeth smile back at in the mirror. Our teeth are now at their maximum natural brightness, but the sensitivity leaves us with shooting pains for the rest of the day.
Pros Results are instantly visible.
Cons Severe sensitivity immediately, and while sporadic, lasts a day. From Dhs2,000.New Lifestyle Clinic
