It´also known as dental bleaching, a common procedure in the field of cosmetic destintry. As a person ages the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes less porous. Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, foodstuffs and tobacco.

There are two main methods of gel bleaching—one performed with high-concentration gel, and another with low-concentration agents. Some people try to do this at home but this method is considered dangerous. It can can discolor the teeth from inside out reducing the tooth enamel. That´s the reason why this procedure should be done by a dentist.

As we explained at the beginning, teeth often become discoloured and stained. Sometimes yellowing is simply a result of aging, but coffee, tea, red wine, colas, and cigarettes can also play a part. Fortunately, these effects can be reversed using our in-office or at-home teeth whitening solutions. At Nova Dental we use the patented Philips ZOOM® Whitening System, which can make your smile brighter and more beautiful than ever before – in just 45 minutes!

Philips ZOOM® is a process by which the bleaching of the discolored and stained enamel and dentin is done. It´s applied to the teeth and high intensity of light is directed towards it with quick results. It is considered to be the safest procedure in the market.We will first apply a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel to the surface of the teeth and use Philips ZOOM®’s patented gentle blue light for 15 minutes to activate the solution. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, lightening the stained portions of the teeth while keeping their structure intact. We will repeat the process twice more, and finally remove the gel to reveal a set of stain-free, luminous teeth.

It is important to say the product is not recommended for women who are pregnant and lactating.
