Is it safe to have Zoom Whitening treatment if I have very receded gums but no gum disease?

Zoom whitening with receding gum line ... #DrSoftTouch

From the sound of things, it appears that you may experience some sensitivity, due to the recession.  There are really no other contraindications against getting the in-office Zoom, besides the likely tooth sensitivity that you'll face.  My recommendation would be for you to try the take-home custom whitening trays provided by your dentist.  He/She will provide a highly concentrated whitening gel, but you won't have to worry about the increased sensitivity from the heat of Zoom lamp.  Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
