Let your teeth do the shining

The holiday season is almost upon us and with it comes a host of year-end celebrations and festivities where shiny white teeth, free from stains, can help you look good and feel confident.

Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, there are a variety of teeth whitening methods that can be used to achieve a dazzling, fresh smile for holiday parties in no time.

Offering a wide range of both in-chair and at-home products, Philips Zoom Whitening provides a professional, safe and effective solution for stained teeth, leaving you with a bright white smile.

From Christmas to New Year’s, our calendars and kitchens are filled with social gatherings, great food, and holiday drinks. To ensure your pearly whites and gums stay healthy during the festive season, we’ve rounded up our favourite products:


If you want clean teeth and healthy gums, consider investing in a Waterpik® water flosser. Water flossing is fast and easy and leaves your mouth feeling great. Best of all, it only takes a minute a day before brushing.

By providing a unique combination of water pressure and patented pulsations to massage and stimulate gums as well as clean deep between teeth and below the gumline where traditional brushing and flossing can’t reach, Waterpik® Water Flossers are clinically proven to be more effective than traditional dental floss for reducing plaque, gingivitis, and gum disease.

If you ‘re going away for the holidays, the battery-operated WP-450 Waterpik® Cordless Express Water Flosser (R999.00) and the Waterpik® WP-450 Cordless Plus Water Flosser (R1, 299) is ideal for travel – no outlet needed.

Available at selected dentists, Dis-Chem stores, www.waterpikflosser.co.za and www.takealot.com.

Philips Sonicare BreathRx

Bad breath is caused by, amongst other things, bacteria and their waste products which collect in the mouth. By simply adding the BreathRx range to your daily routine, up to 99% of this bacteria can be eliminated.

​Using mouthwash in combination with your regular tooth brushing helps to control the bacteria in the difficult-to-reach areas such as between your teeth, on the tongue, back of the tongue/throat area, and in the pockets around the teeth.​

BreathRx Whitening Toothpaste (R199.00) combines the benefits of fluoride, tartar control and enhanced stain removal with the malodor protection of Zytex to eliminate odour-causing plaque and debris from the teeth and gums.

Perfect for travelling, the BreathRx Starter Kit (R425.00) contains a tongue spray, 2 x tongue cleaners, a mouthwash (237ml) and toothpaste 112g.

Available from www.zoomwhitening.co.za and www.takealot.com.
