Just finishing a 5 year oral rebuild. The zoom was...
The procedure itself was uneventful, though by the 3 treatment the zingers began and I was done. I do not think I could have tolerated another 15 minutes of treatment. The zingers are surprising and nerve racking but last for only seconds before quieting down (for me at least). And as I say pain is subjective. After all the work I have been through in the last 5 years this type of pain is comparably minimal. For me, the pain is not like a throbbing toothache that goes on for hours and hours. It is more of a transient sparkler type pain that makes you go oooh! for a few seconds then quiets down. I have put in my Invisalign trays with Clinpro that may help speed the resealing process.
Overall I am dealing with the zingers well and I am very happy with the results. The Tech measured and I did go up 8 shades in 45 minutes. Not bad for a little suffering. It should be noted that I do get the same pain and zinger issues fro the Night White as well. So I am very happy results! Big Thanks to all the folks at O' Neil dental in Mn!
Here is my advice: Take the day off from work!
Get some pain meds from your practitioner
Take your pain meds and go to bed
I highly recommend O'Neil dental for your dental needs in Minnesota. Dr's O'Neil and Schwartz are amazing. Staff is always friendly and well training. Technician Ashley is well trained in Zoom process and procedure. She did a great job of protecting soft tissues and applying whitening gel. The office is a well oiled machine! I have been to see Dr. O'Neil since 1997. He is always educating himself and staff latest technologies and techniques. He and Dr. Schwartz always put my comfort and well being first and take the time to always ensure the work is quality dentistry.
