About Zenyum

Our mission: make Asia Smile More through accessible, affordable dental treatments. The launch of our 3D-printed invisible braces marked our first step. Next up: medical-grade teeth whitening.

Founded in 2018 in Singapore, Zenyum produces braces under the highest quality standards. In 2020, we expanded beyond Invisible Braces – to Smile Cosmetics, providing dental essentials like teeth-whitening and more.

How can hydrogen peroxide in off-the-shelf and professional teeth whitening products damage the teeth?

Hydrogen peroxide administered at the appropriate concentration by a properly qualified and trained dental professional does not damage the teeth. Some hydrogen peroxide will diffuse into the pulp and cause transient irritation of the nerves [1]. This may cause sensitivity. However, it can go away once the bleaching process is stopped. Over the counter (OTC) dental bleaching products are only allowed to contain up to 0. 1% hydrogen peroxide. On the other hand, prescription dental bleaching products can contain up to 6% hydrogen peroxide.

What is the difference between teeth whitening at dental clinics versus aesthetic spas as the latter tends to be much cheaper?

Dental professionals and dental clinics are the only entities licensed to perform teeth whitening by the Ministry of Health in Singapore. It is illegal for non dental professionals to dispense whitening gels and perform whitening treatments. I have written an extensive answer on why having a non dentally trained person perform your teeth whitening is not a good idea.

How to pick the best teeth whitening system when comparing between different treatments like Zenyum White, Philips Zoom, and Innowhite??

Picking "the best" teeth whitening system depends on what do you mean by "best". For some, this means either the cheapest, or the fastest, or reduced need for repeat treatments etc. Ask your dentist about which brand they stock in their office and why. Ask for photos of the patients they have treated. Your dentist will also advise on whether chairside or take home whitening will be more suitable.
