Philips Zoom! QuickPro is a whitening varnish that is applied with a brush to the enamel for accurate application without the need for trays.
The secret to Philips Zoom! QuickPro is the unique dual layer varnish technology.
Layer 1 - a nearly invisible hydrogen peroxide whitening varnish.
This hydrophilic (moisture-loving) varnish adheres well to the tooth, delivering the active agent directly into the enamel and dentine.
As with all whitening products in the UK market the hydrogen peroxide is formulated in a way that not only allows it to be released onto the tooth but will also mean that it is released into the saliva. Saliva interaction can reduce the efficacy of the hydrogen peroxide. Philips have addressed this with the development of the second layer!
Layer 2 - next they apply an innovative sealant layer that dries in seconds, locking the hydrogen peroxide layer in place. This varnish layer is hydrophobic (water repellant) and the 2 varnish layers are immiscible (do not mix) during application.
And because the innovative second layer keeps the whitening varnish from getting on to soft tissue there is little or no sensitivity as a result of use. Unlike other whitening products there is also very little, if any, taste of peroxide in the mouth.
Unique dual layer technology in action
This video demonstrates tests for the efficacy of the sealant layer.
We see 3 petri dishes - one with a competitor whitening strip and then 2 for Zoom! QuickPro. One contains just the first layer varnish and the second the dual layer varnish. The liquid in which they are submerged detects the presence of hydrogen peroxide.
The darker the shade of the liquid the more of the hydrogen peroxide has escaped into the saliva. We can see that after 30 minutes the QuickPro 2 layer varnish is successful at retaining the hydrogen peroxide at the tooth surface.
