Zoom whitening is a teeth-bleaching procedure performed in a dentist's office. After a hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth, an overhead lamp delivers UV light to the area, breaking down the activated gel. This allows oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin, bleaching the colored substances while leaving the structure of the teeth intact. Some users experience comfortable procedures, while others have reported a great deal of pain. Treatments typically last about an hour and may result in up to eight shades of improvement. LEARN MORE ›

20 Years Old, Wanted A Brighter Smile - Appleton, WI

A little history about my teeth first. I got braces when I was in 5th grade, got them off right before 7th grade. Never have had a cavity in my life, got my wisdom teeth out when I was in 8th grade, and take pretty good care of my teeth. I use straws with everything I drink and haven't had a sip... READ MORE

All 4 Phases for Most White

I did all four 15 minute phases . Had no pain during, had some sensitivity immediately after and 12 hours later before bed. Got my front teeth fixed beforehand and had a cap on front tooth that my dentist whitened separately right after the zoom. My original shade before zoom was two shades from... READ MORE

Not Worth $500

I had the Zoom whitening done twice (two separate occasions/visits) within two weeks and my teeth barely improved. Not worth the cost (if you're paying 500 a pop) and not worth the pain. My teeth didn't come out looking anything like the teeth seen/shown on the Zoom advertisement. My... READ MORE

Young Ex-Smoker Getting Braces - Florence, AL

OMG THE PAIN. So I guess I'm one of the unfortunately ones who are sensitive to the treatment because I only made it to the second treatment, out of three total. My dentist insisted I quit or I'd have tried to keep going to get the best results. This is the most disappointing part- I paid full... READ MORE

Quit Smoking a Year Ago Needed to Get Rid of the Yellow and Brown Stains - Fort Lee, NJ

I did all 4 rounds and I didn't feel anything the whole time (My teeth are usually very sensitive to cold stuff). Now I feel sensitivity. Its annoying and a little uncomfortable pain wise but its manageable. It feels like I bit into something freezing cold. The results are unfreaking... READ MORE

Sparkling White! - San Francisco, CA

My teeth weren't yellow to begin with, but there also weren't their brightest either. My advice for anyone who is interested in Zoom; invest in some Tylenol to take before the procedure and some Sensodyne toothpaste. Your teeth will "Zing" with sensitivity shortly after, but it doesn't last... READ MORE

Very Happy with ZOOM! Whitening - Nashville, TN

Pros: Amazing, beautifully white teeth really fast. Cons: Can experience a couple of days of discomfort after (zingers). I had ZOOM! whitening treatment in 2010 and loved the results, which have been kept up pretty well by using the Nite White product for regular touch-ups. I had a second... READ MORE

Whitening, Crown and Going to Get Veneers - Arlington, MA

My teeth were different shapes and were stained from lots of coffee. I am sure we all have something we don't like. I am glad that I went thru this process as it is coming out better than I imagined. The cons here are that it does take a few hours in the dental chair and worth the long-term... READ MORE

Want Shiny Whites, Love Steak and Red Wine. - Mississauga, Ontario

I got this done for my wedding and was very happy with the results. I have done a lot of at home whitening over the years and found Zoom less "zappy" than other options such as crest. Over all not bad. I drink pop and eat steak and other things that stain your teeth and I used to be a... READ MORE

Decided to try zoom. Found a great dentist online and actually had a deep cleaning done by them about 2 weeks before the zoom.
