Q: Do at-home whitening kits work?

A man in a red crewneck sweater pumps his fists and smiles in triumph.

At-home whitening kits do have the ability to whiten your teeth – but it’s often a process that can take weeks of work, and the results may not be as dramatic as you were hoping. The effects are often short-term, meaning you must repeat the process frequently to maintain the desired shade.

Also, misusing at-home kits can lead to damaged teeth and gums. The enamel can become stripped, and the gums may be irritated from leaving the product on too long.

Both our locations offer Phillips Zoom! Whitening, a professional whitening treatment that works around issues like sensitivity and stains to provide effective whitening even after just one treatment. Phillips Zoom! Whitening also offers a selection of easy-to-use professional at-home kits to maintain and improve the effects of an office treatment over a longer period.

Come in for a consultation at one of our St. Vital Centre or Garden City Shopping Centre locations to find out more about Phillips Zoom! Whitening and how the treatment can work for your smile.
