Is it safe to have Zoom Whitening treatment if I have very receded gums but no gum disease?
Doctor Answers 3
Proper gum dam coverage and follow these steps
in addition I have my patients brush with sensitive reducing toothpastes for 2 weeks prior to whitening along with a 600mg dose of iburofen 1 hr prior to the whitening visit. This helps alleviate some sensitivity. however, everyone is different and some feel sensitivity more than others even with these precaution steps.
For those that experience immediate sensitivity we have the patient use their at home whitening trays and they leave the office wearing the trays with Zoom relief gel inside them. They leave this on for 30 min following the procedure. Additionally, patients use the desensitizing toothpaste for the next 2 weeks.
so immediately after removing the bleach. Be sure to remove the bleach first:)
