Philips celebrates the month of love and dental health
February 21, 2014
February is the month of love. Aside from Valentine’s, we are also celebrating the National Dental Health Month.
”Dental hygiene plays an important role in love and romance as well as in day-to-day living,” stresses Me-Ann Achacoso, Philips Consumer Lifestyle Business Development Manager for Health and Wellness.
Always, a smile is the first thing people notice when we are introduced, and this creates a lasting impression. And a great smile owes largely to white teeth. We are often beguiled by white teeth in a smile, and rightly so. This is a sign of good health and nutrition and proper dental hygiene. Evolutionary science explains to us that this a good sign in finding a mate. But a smile and white teeth also play subtle but important part in everyday life.
The importance of a smile
“Flashed at the right time, a smile can help make favorable impressions during job interviews and similar situations,” says Achacoso. “White teeth are a good sign of health as well as your commitment to maintaining it.”
Moreover, she also says that knowing that you have white teeth boosts your confidence, making you self- assured, and people respond to you positively and smile back.
“Thus, it is important we keep our teeth white,” the Achacoso avers.
However, it is inevitable that teeth can get yellow over time, she says. This is aggravated if you smoke a lot or drink lots of coffee. Also, dental hygiene is sometimes neglected.
The dental clinic regularly offers teeth whitening services, and there are a wide range of products at the stores that promises teeth-whitening effects. One is advised to visit a dentist for professional dental recommendations and feedback.
Zooming on whiteness
“Many reliable dentists use and recommend Philip Zoom,” Achacoso says.
“Patients have different needs when it comes to whitening, and Philips Zoom is expertly designed to address these needs,” she explains. “Many patients request their dentist to use Philips Zoom. In fact, over 10 million patients have already used Zoom to achieve brighter, healthier smiles.”
One can opt for a chair side whitening treatment in a dental clinic with Philips Zoom. This is the quickest and easiest way to effectively whiten your teeth. It uses a patented Zoom Whitening gel and a Philips Zoom lamp to bleach the teeth, bringing out a bright sparkling white smile that makes a big impression. Philips Zoom is the only chair side whitening system that has variable intensity setting so each treatment can be customized to maximize patient comfort. The procedure also includes desensitizers to help minimize sensitivity and protect your enamel. This dentist-supervised procedure is safe, effective and clinically proven to whiten up to eight shades in just one visit.
“For whitening at home, Philips offer Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite,” Achacoso informs. “These products can whiten teeth in seven to 14 days. Moreover, they are the only at-home whitening products to contain amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP), which is clinically proven to reduce sensitivity, protect enamel and help improve the luster and smoothness of the teeth.”
Zoom at-home whitening products are completely customizable. Your dentist creates a custom tray made just for you and can tailor the formula concentration and wear times to your sensitivity and lifestyle.
To maintain white teeth between treatments, Philips recommends the Zoom Whitening Pen, which maintains whiteness with just two applications a day.
Maintaining white teeth is not just vanity, says Achacoso. It should be part of your daily health habits, and you reap the rewards in many ways.
