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 ›

$350 in - Hoover AL

Just got done about 30 minutes ago. Everything seems fine. No problems while procedure was being done. Hopefully no zingers at all. I have been using Colgate sensitive for a few weeks and occasional fluoride rinse. Also took two Aleve right before I sat down in chair for them to start... READ MORE

Horrible Experience - Chicago, IL

I would reccomend never to ever ever do this. It was painful during and extremely after. My lips were burnt, and swollen for a day. My gums were burnt and had white spots on them. This treatment is insane. Absolutely like going back to the 1700's and I'm shocked any dentist could possibly... READ MORE

Not Worth it! - New York, NY

I got this on the recommendation of my dentist. Personally, I was not impressed with the results of the Zoom Whitening. My teeth were whiter but I think any at home treatment would have cost me %10 of the price and would have given the same, if not better results. Definitely not worth the $400... READ MORE

Worth Every Penny - Woodland Hills, CA

I had this done this week and am very pleased. Saw my dentist on a Tuesday for a cleaning and check-up. Also to discuss Veneers as I was pretty unhappy with my teeth lately. They found a cavity so we arranged for me to comeback and get the cavity done on Thursday and do the whitening. My... READ MORE

Extremely Painful for Almost No Change - Coral Gables, FL

Before I had this done, I spoke to someone in the dental office about the procedure. I am prone to sensitive teeth and wanted to make sure it wouldn't be a problem. I was assured that it would not be. Once I arrived in the office, I was given paperwork that indicated that the procedure might... READ MORE

Zoom = OUCH! - Monroe,CT

I did Zoom whitening two days ago. It was HORRIFIC. My dentist said absolutely NOTHING about the possibility of pain with this treatment. Everything was fine at first. The doctor took a picture of my teeth prior to starting. She painstakingly covered every part of soft tissue, leaving only my... READ MORE

Disaster! Left With 2 Abscesses in Front Teeth - Melbourne, Australia

WARNING !!

Lots of Pain! Pain Subsided After 2 Hours - Norco, CA

I had mine done at 9:30 a.m. and felt no pain for first (3) 15-min sessions and felt some minor zingers during the middle of the 4th. I thought it was all fine and was told I'd feel some "sensitivity". No, this was NOT sensitivity. It was pure pain! Every 20-30 seconds, pain would last about 3-5... READ MORE

Zoom Teeth Whitening, Great Result

Had this done several years ago now, was quite painful (more so than I expected), the procedure creates a sort of popping sensation in the teeth which is really unpleasant. At the time I had a discoluored front tooth and general yellowing and so this was a treatment before trying a veneer. The... READ MORE

Painful and Not Effective - Moscow, Russia

I had my Zoom done one week ago. Despite having anaesthesia, I had extremely painful zingers during the third and fourth sessions and for about 5 hours more. Then zingers stopped, but my teeth hurt all the night. At the beginning my teeth were really white, but now, despite being on the white... READ MORE

NIce Results That Didn't Last - Florida

Spent $400 for Zoom Whitening in 2010. I had very minimal sensitivity. My teeth did get a lot whiter and looked great - for about a week. 1-2 weeks later they looked pretty close to what they did prior to whitening. I was given an aftercare kit which admittedly I didn't use consistently. The... READ MORE

Not Sure if It's Worth It Yet... - West Chester, PA

I got a Groupon for this and had this done today at a dentist that is not mine personal dentist. The technician who did seemed to know what she was doing, but she didn't really take time to explain the procedure or discuss my teeth. I asked about sensitivity, which she said was dependent...

Heard Whitestrips Work Better.. I Believe It.. - New York, NY

I love white teeth and am a coffee drinker so I decided to try out this Zoom. 10 years ago I did the trays at a Dentists office. I got a deal from Groupon. What a mistake.

Extremely Painful for Very Little Change - Miami, FL

As I have aged, my teeth has slowly yellowed over time. I never smoked or drank coffee, and my dentist just said that the change in color was due to age.
