I just had my teeth whitened this morning using Zoom whitening and am very happy with the results.
Colour - went from mid range to best possible white (but not looking fake)
Time taken - 90 minutes including a clean and 4 x 15 minute sessions
Pain during the session - I had no pain for the first 2 x 15 minute sessions, but started to get the zings shortly into the 3rd session. I moved the light away when this happened and it went away, i probably had 5-6 zings during the whole procedure.
Pain after the session - the zings do continue BUT i have noticed what makes them happen. If you talk or open your mouth the zings will come back. If you keep your mouth shut (and i suspect your teeth wet with saliva) I don't get any zings. I had none for about 3 hours and then spoke to someone and got them straight away.
So the No. 1 advice of the day is to keep your mouth shut after the procedure and hopefully you are ok like me!!
