I purchased Zoom from Groupon for $169. After purchasing I looked at reviews online and was horrified! Everyone seemed to have lots and lots of pain and I wasn't sure if I should go through with it because I do have some sensitive teeth. I decided to go to the consolation and expressed my concern to the dentist about the pain. He assured me it was a painless procedure. He said the people complaining of pain probably did not go to a dentist certified in Zoom. He said pain occurs when the person performing the Zoom does not carefully cover your lips and gums to make sure the gel only touches the teeth. He said sometimes you may experience 'zingers' up to 24 hours after the treatment but it should not be an unbearable pain and some don't get any at all. I wasn't exactly sure what a zinger was but from the reviews I have read I understand it to be that pain you get when you hold ice cold water in your mouth if you have sensitive teeth. He seemed legit and confident in his work so I scheduled an appointment.
My appointment was this morning at 9am. I took pain relievers while on the way just in case. They put vitamin E oil on my lips and the protectant on my gums. I did three session of fifteen minutes each. The put the Zoom gel on your teeth and then put a special light on it while you hold your mouth open with the help on some kind of tray they put in your mouth. I experienced no pain or zingers at all. The most uncomfortable part was having my mouth open that long, it does make your jaws kind of sore. I also purchased the trays for an additional $75 and they say I probably won't need the trays for another six months or so. I'm very pleased with my results and I can definitely see the difference. I'm not sure how many shades lighter I got but as soon as I looked into the mirror I was happy!
It has been about an hour now since I finished and I have had two quick little stings but nothing like when I eat ice cream. I noticed it but I didn't wince or anything and it only lasted a couple seconds I would recommend Zoom especially if you can find a good price.
I had a great experience all around and I'm very pleased with the results so far. I have a 3 on follow up because they did give me sheet saying foods to avoid today but they didn't explain how to use the trays. I haven't even opened the box yet but I'm sure in included instructions.
