Can You Get Zoom Done if You Have White Fillings?

Doctor Answers (4)

2 important things to remember with Zoom Teeth Whitening and Composite (White) Fillings:

+1
  1. Your natural teeth will whiten, your composite (white) fillings do not. be careful with the whitening, because you may look like "summer corn" with white teeth and yellower fillings.
  2. You should also avoid the placement of any composite (white) fillings immediately after Zoom teeth whitening as it can affect the strength of the bonding due to the chemical process.

You can certainly Zoom Whiten your teeth if you have white composite fillings on your front teeth, but you should be aware that the fillings will not whiten.  If there is a noticeable difference between  the color of your teeth and fillings you would be forced to replace the fillings to the lighter color. My opinion is to Zoom away and replace the fillings if necessary.  Good luck.

Zoom with white fillings

You can get Zoom done if you have white fillings.  Just be aware that those white restorations will not change color when the whitening is done.  The only thing that will change is the color of your natural tooth.

Just be aware that the white fillings will NOT bleach as your enamel will. If they perfectly match the color of your enamel before the ZOOM, they will not perfectly match after the ZOOM, and might have to be replaced.
