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 ›

In Some Pain Now, but Overall Great Experience - Illinois

I decided to go for the zoom treatment AFTER I had read all of these reviews because instead of believing everything I read, I asked my hygenist. She informed me that she does about two zoom whitenings a week which means over 200 in two years. She then told me only one person in two years has... READ MORE

Painful - Cant imagine if I stayed to have all of the treatments done - Elizabeth, NJ

The light on your teeth is ok for the first 2 treatments. It feels like toothpaste that's a little to hot. When it was time for the 3rd treatment there 15 minutes apart. The lady at the dentist did say some pain once the 3rd treatment. Well was fine until 9 mins in the 3rd procedure. The... READ MORE

Zoom Teeth Whitening: Not Worth It - Los Angeles, CA

I bought a Groupon to have Zoom at a nearby dentist's office. I had a teeth cleaning beforehand and underwent three 15 minute Zoom sessions consecutively. I had no pain, only felt warmth. After the procedure, my teeth appear almost exactly the same. The technician said they lightened one... READ MORE

Not As Bad As They Say! - Melbourne, Australia

Had this done about an hour ago finished treatment. No pains at all during the whitening, teeth just felt abit funny at the time and lips warm. Make sure you chose a good dentist that covers your gums properly. Otherwise since then I have had a few zingers, which are not fun. But very bearable.... READ MORE

Very Pleased - Scotland, UK

**HONEST REVIEW** Each individual is going to experience different levels of pain depending on both how sensitive their teeth are, and what kind of preparation they do. I got Zoom Teeth Whitening done by my dentist, who carefully explained the procedure to me beforehand, and about these... READ MORE

Not for Sensitive Teeth! - Atlanta, GA

I should have saved my money! I have sensitive teeth and it was so painful that I couldn't even make it through the treatment! I think I did 2 of the 3 (or 4) 20 minute sessions. Also, some of the gel got on my gums and burnt the crap out of me!! I did Zoom prior to getting my veneers, but... READ MORE

Only Lightened Two Shades - Los Angeles, CA

The process is tedious. The roots and gums hurt for about three days after. The worse part was, I was told my teeth were 3ed from the whitest sample tooth, but when I saw them in sunlight they were still yellowish. READ MORE

Great for the Price - Orlando, FL

I purchased Zoom from Groupon for $169. After purchasing I looked at reviews online and was horrified! Everyone seemed to have lots and lots of pain and I wasn't sure if I should go through with it because I do have some sensitive teeth. I decided to go to the consolation and expressed my...

Zoom Review - Austin, TX

I decided to have Zoom to try to get my already pretty white teeth sparkling white. I didn't have a lot of stain, they were just not sparkling and I thought they could be better. I went in at noon for my Zoom and they prepped me which included putting a gel around my gums and a ton of cotton... READ MORE

Worth It! - Bolingbrook, IL

I had zoom Whitening yesterday. My teeth were becoming yellowish and I felt the need to whiten them a little. The procedure was very smooth and I didn't feel pain and felt minor sensitivity at the end of the 3rd fifteen minute session thank God since I was worried after reading... READ MORE

Damaged my Teeth Enamel - California

I had zoom done offered for free to new patients in 2009 and lost the enamel of my teeth. My teeth are white but not shiny anymore. I hope I had read all the reviews before have it done. My teeth lost the shiny finish. :( READ MORE

Painful - regret having it done - Pasadena, TX

I had Zoom Whitening performed in 2003 and regret having it done. First of all the advertisements about being able to get it done during your lunch hour were false, my session took about 3.5 hours. Secondly, the technician applied so much peroxide gel along my gum line that it actually blistered... READ MORE

Don't Do It - West Hills, CA

I had it done a week ago. My teeth looked good for like 48-72 hours and then the original color came back. I'm not a smoker or drinker. For 72 hours I drank milk and water and no foods with dyes. My top ones look slightly better but the top of the teeth, near the gumline, still look the same... READ MORE

Zoom Teeth Whitening

My teeth turned yellow following chemotherapy in 2010. This year I had my teeth whitened with zoom. The process is long but worth it. I experienced minor gum pain after. I am pleased with the results and recomend this to others in similar situations. READ MORE

Pain Temporary

Afterwards my teeth probably got one to two shades lighter.... READ MORE

Just Had Teeth Zoomed Yesterday - Madison, OH

I am in the process of having all my front teeth resurfaced after years of chips and wearing away of the surface enamel. It was highly recommended that before I have the resurfacing done, that I have my teeth whitened by the Zoom process. I did so yesterday. The technician had to take molds... READ MORE

Worth It but Read This for Help!

Experience was good. But no home-care kit provided. Here are a few thoughts: 1. As a medical professional I can say its a really bad idea to take any kind of NSAID or pain reliever BEFORE the procedure. I will explain why below. 2. Be vocal talk to your dentist make them work for... READ MORE

Ouch! But Nice - Birmingham, AL
