Flashy ties, ‘World’s Best Dad’ t-shirts, sorry socks, questionable aftershave… when it comes to Father’s Day gifts, we’ve all either received one (or more) of these items or been guilty of gifting them for our Dad. Unless of course, you’re the type who’s fond of giving cash as a gift. Ever thought about a teeth whitening gift?
Before you scoff at that last one, let’s face facts: Dads are more often than not, extremely hard to buy presents for. What do you buy a guy who has everything? What do you get Dad when you’re not even quite sure what his interests are? After all, Dads tend to go through phases. Golf one week, gardening the next… who can keep up?
So, with less than one week to go until Father’s Day, if you’re really struggling to find that perfect present for your Dad, we’ve got a gift that might just surprise him (in a good way). Teeth whitening!
Sure, it’s a little outside the box but we bet Dad wouldn’t have received a gift quite like this too many times (if ever) in his life. Why not spend your hard earned cash on a gift that’ll help to boost your father’s self-confidence? And hey, you’re not going to discover this teeth whitening gift tucked away in Dad’s closet one day during a spontaneous visit.
Sound great? Let Dad know what you’ve bought him, organise a day when he can attend his first teeth whitening appointment and give your local NovaDental clinic a call on 1300 584 143 to book.

Now, we thought it’d be a good idea to arm you with some general knowledge about teeth whitening so that you can answer any quick questions Dad may have. With so much information about teeth whitening bouncing around, it’s quite easy to get confused so we’ve based this rundown on the questions people commonly ask about Philips Zoom treatment.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Yes, clinical studies prove using carbamide or hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth under the supervision of a dental professional, is safe for both the teeth and gums.
Are there any side effects of teeth whitening?
Before any teeth whitening treatment begins, your NovaDental dentist will check whether you’re a good candidate for whitening. We recommend that a scale and clean be undertaken before undergoing any teeth whitening treatment. Your dentist will also check you’re using the right concentration of whitening formula.
Generally speaking, tooth and gum sensitivity tend to be the most common side effects after whitening treatment is completed. The Phillips Zoom take-home whitening kit products include two mild desensitizing agents that work to minimize tooth sensitivity: potassium nitrate and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP).
Is there a difference between over the counter teeth whitening solutions and Phillips Zoom?
Yes. Any over the counter teeth whitening solution you purchase won’t be customized to suit your needs and whitening goals. When you undertake Phillips Zoom treatment at a NovaDental clinic, you can be sure the whitening process is tailored to suit your specific needs by your dentist.
How long will the Phillips Zoom whitening treatment take?
Thanks to Phillips Zoom, your teeth will be visibly whiter in just the one day. With the in-chair treatment, your teeth will become up to eight shades whiter in 45 minutes. As for the in-home treatment, when used as instructed, you can achieve the same results in one or two weeks, depending on the concentration of the formulation and wear time you select.
How long will my Phillips Zoom whitening results last?
Think about how many times you eat and drink each day. While whitening treatments help to reduce existing stains, the constant consumption of beverages (coffee, soft drinks and so on) and the natural ageing process, may cause your teeth to become discoloured once again. Ask us about the Phillips Zoom take-home kit which helps to maintain your whitening treatment and combat recurring discolouration.
Why do teeth discolour?
Teeth discolour due to many reasons. While the most common tend to be because of what we’re eating and drinking on a daily basis (in particular, anything highly coloured such as berries, coffee, tea and red wine), some medications are also a factor. Ageing, smoking and trauma can also cause teeth to discolour.
