Candid is a brand of remote aligners, also called DTC or at-home aligners. They offer a convenient, discreet, and affordable way to straighten your teeth without having to visit an orthodontist.
Candid also offers a professional-grade whitening kit, Philips Zoom DayWhite, at a discounted cost. The kit is used before you begin aligner treatment. You can also buy it as a standalone service if you aren’t straightening your teeth.
Philips Zoom Whitening is the #1 requested whitening product. In the past, you could only buy Philips Zoom through your dentist. The treatment is typically completed in-office and costs up to $1,000.
Thanks to Candid, Philips Zoom Whitening is available to anyone without having to leave their homes — for the first time.
You can purchase the kit alone or with your aligner treatment for up to 30% less than in-office treatment.
Candid stands out in the remote aligner industry for a few reasons:
We recommend in-person consultations because you’ll get an in-depth 3D scan from a trained professional. You’ll also have the option to buy the Philips Zoom Whitening Kit to brighten your teeth before treatment begins.
Note: If an at-home impression kit is more convenient, you can still purchase the Philips Zoom Whitening add-on.
Philips Zoom is a popular professional teeth whitening product. This chairside treatment can whiten teeth up to 8 shades after 1 session. It’s also FDA-approved and takes 1 hour to complete.
Professional whitening treatments like Zoom are more effective than over-the-counter products regarding speed and degree of whitening achieved. This is due to their higher peroxide concentrations.
The take-home version of Zoom offered by Candid is also effective. Over 10 million people have experienced a healthy, white smile with Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite. Results are noticeable in as little as 3 days.
The primary bleaching agent in Zoom is hydrogen peroxide.
The original Philips Zoom chairside treatment formulation has 25% hydrogen peroxide.
The Philips Zoom kit offered by Candid has a 6% hydrogen peroxide solution with fluoride, ACP, and potassium nitrate. This means you’ll have to use the at-home kit more often to see professional results.
There are two ways to order the kit. You can buy it alone or with your aligner treatment.

Is Philips Zoom right for you?
Philips Zoom Whitening DayWhite is a professional, clinical-grade whitening formula with 6% hydrogen peroxide, fluoride, ACP, and potassium nitrate.
The complimentary whitening foam Candid offers during aligner treatment has 3.8% hydrogen peroxide. It’s a milder formula that can be used to disinfect and whiten your aligners (and teeth) throughout treatment.
Candid offers Philips Zoom Whitening for $349 (vs. $599 in-office).
You can purchase this whitening treatment on its own or in combination with your aligner treatment. However, it must be completed beforehand. The custom trays fit your original tooth positioning.
Philips Zoom is the #1 patient requested professional whitening brand. For the first time, you can get professional-grade whitening without having to leave your home.
The main standout of this product is that you’ll receive custom trays, which reduce the risk of gum irritation. The trays also help the gel stay on your teeth better, resulting in more even whitening and less leakage.
Although effective, Philips DayWhite is more expensive than other at-home brands. It costs close to $400, while most LED whitening kits cost $150 or less.
If you’re looking for professional-grade results and don’t mind the higher cost, choose Philips. The results will last much longer than other brands (up to a year, depending on your lifestyle).
Other at-home options are available, but these typically require more upkeep and don’t offer custom trays.
