I've been going to the same dentist for many years so the decision was not hard to choose. They had been promoting zoom whitening for some time, but my doctor always told me that whitening strips were a just as effective cheaper alternative. Everytime I tried white strips they would just fall off and they tasted bad, I don't know maybe I'm just being a baby about them. I just thought they were not working either so that might have been why I began to not like them in the first place
Starting from the beginning I came into the office as usual and receptionist greeted me. I probably waited maybe 10 to 15 minutes, this was maybe over a year ago or so. They took me back to the chair and put this "paint" on my teeth she said and then I sat under the zoom light for about 10 minutes or however long the intervals were and then she'd come back and check on me and she'd paint my teeth again and put the light back on my teeth for a few minutes. I believe we did that 3 times and one of the times I remember feels a zing up one of my teeth and she said it was probably because didn't put enough "paint" on that tooth or something. But before I knew it, it was over maybe within 45min-1hour was over. I thought it was really weird that I didn't even see my dentist that day, a hygenist did the entire thing. Also my teeth were pretty sensitive after, but she showed me a scale of how many shades of white and I think I went up like 4 shades or something.
I hope this was a little helpful for someone who is considering getting zoom whitening. Hopefully you can tell by my pictures that there is a significant difference in the bright whiteness of my teeth.
