Philips Zoom! take-home products are the only take-home whiteners to combine ACP, potassium nitrate and fluoride.
Sensitivity is an important part of the pre-treatment conversation for whitening.
The dual barrel system, unique to Philips Zoom!, means products do not require refrigeration
The optimal pH level for chemical reactions is around pH 7-9. Generally at this pH peroxide is unstable and therefore requires refrigeration. Philips Zoom! has developed a unique dual barrel system where the peroxide is held in a separate chamber at a stable pH of 4-5 without the need for refrigeration. This is then mixed with the ‘activator’ to raise the pH to 7-9 at point of use.
Philips Zoom! take-home whitening products offer a variety of convenient take-home formulations to suit your patients preferences.
