my 6 year old son asked me why my teeth were yellow so i decided to do something about it. I researched britesmile and zoom and it seemed zoom got you whiter.
Well i did it this morning and it definitely got me noticable whiter, but these shooting pains are real annoying. Every few minutes or so you get a zing, some are worst than others, and my dentist said they would last for 24 hrs. I have a fairly high tolerance to pain and don't usually have sensitivity issues with my teeth, but when a bad zing comes its like a kick to your privates. if the pain is gone by tomorrow, it looks whiter enough that i think it will be worth it, but if it lasts a few days, or longer, then i'm not so sure, will have to get back to you on that.
I think they should give you a few percs or vicodin before you leave to last a few days, because i did come back to my office and its obviously affecting me when i'm speaking to clients on the phone. Hope the zingers are gone tomorrow and my teeth close to where they are now.
Fyi the procedure itself was about 90 minutes and although there were some zingers throughout it was not unbearable, but definitely uncomfortable.....
