Teeth Whitening in Tring Hertfordshire: Achieve a Brighter Smile


Maintaining a standard for oral health and hygiene, whether by regularly brushing, flossing or visiting the dentist, is the most, if not only, reliable method of naturally achieving white and healthy teeth.

Still, teeth may appear darker or yellower than one would prefer, regardless of the dental regime they follow. In these cases, teeth whitening is the fast and simplest way to undo the damage caused by your diet, vices, age, activities or medications. Bow House Dental provides the best source of treatment available: Zoom Teeth Whitening, by Philips.

How It Works

Zoom Teeth Whitening is a safe, pain-free and sustainable way of making teeth multiple shades lighter in as little as one hour. Philips has designed the Zoom Teeth Whitening for use at both dental offices and at home, with the latter used over the course of two weeks or more.

If you choose to undergo Zoom Teeth Whitening at Bow House Dental, your teeth can become eight shades whiter in 45 minutes, and our trained dentist will facilitate the entire treatment in a safe, reliable and hassle-free manner. To achieve optimal results, the dentist may clean or scale the teeth before the bleaching procedure.

Your lips and gums will be covered, while the dentist or dental assistant applies the Zoom Whitening hydrogen peroxide gel onto the exposed teeth. The gel is then exposed to the patented Zoom light to activate it, enabling the gel to permeate the teeth’s surface and eliminate stains or discolouration. Bow House Dental will repeat the 15-minute gel application and light activation procedure twice more, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes. Immediate application of a sensitivity-reducing fluoride paste-gel is made afterward.

Philips also manufactures Zoom Teeth Whitening kits, which Bow House Dental can supply to patients who wish to conduct the procedure themselves. Follow your dentist’s instructions to make the most out of this revolutionary take-home whitening system.

Patient Profile

Over 10 million people worldwide have benefitted from Zoom Whitening’s safe, speedy and satisfying results. But, there are cases where heat, tingling, sensitivity and gag reflexes may complicate the whitening procedure. Your dentist will make the necessary adjustments if you notify him or her of these conditions. Bow House Dental notes that the teeth whitening system is not recommended for children under 13 years of age, or for pregnant or lactating women. Results of the procedure may also vary depending on a patient’s prior shade assessment and dental conditions.

Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.
