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 ›

Painful, but Somewhat Effective - Annandale, VA

Purchased coupon online, so it wasn't as expensive. Went to my regular dentist for cleaning, x-rays, & check-up a couple days before Zoom. I've *never* had sensitive teeth or any tooth pain before and I was not uncomfortable during the zoom process - the light felt sort of warm on my... READ MORE

Great Results. Some Pain. - Charlotte, NC

I'm really happy with my results. I read a lot of reviews and was really scared it would be too painful. I asked to stop as soon as I felt pain. I did 3 treatments and tried to do the fourth knowing the pain was coming and got a substantial jolt and that was it for me. I did get zingers... READ MORE

Not Really Worth the Office Visit! - Bryan, TX

I got the procedure done in the office yesterday and the take home trays. Made it through 3 of the 4 treatments. Got about 2 shades whiter, but the pain is so not worth it. READ MORE

Do Not Get This Procedure! - Phoenix, AZ

I was told that if I took a Benadryl or Nyquil I would be able to fall asleep through the procedure. I decided to take 1 hydrocodone and 1 800 mg ibuprofen just in case and figured I could try to sleep. I did not have pain up until phase 3 out of 4 of the procedure. I could feel extreme shocks...

1 1/2 Shades Whiter with Severe Pain - Carterville, IL

I only made it through session 2 of the 3. It felt like my teeth were being shocked and I literally wanted to jump off the table. By the time I got home my heart rate was elevated due to the pain and I couldn't help but cry. The pain was worse than any tooth ache I have ever had. My husband... READ MORE

This Really Hurts! - Buffalo, NY

I had this procedure done at 10:30am. Three sessions at 15 minutes each. I had just gotten 7 mini dental implants the week before and dentist threw in the whitening for free. Normally costs $350.

Zoom Whitening - Tracy, CA

Love my results!!! Definitely worth it, but the zingers are very discomforting. I am still getting them :( It's been about 3 1/2 hours since the procedure. I'm hoping it stops soon! I would do it again though, it is worth the pain. No pain no gain! READ MORE

Satisfied with the Results; Zingers Were Manageable - Fort Worth, TX

Purchased service thru GroupOn. Did some research first and decided to go for it. Discussed the procedure with both the dentist and the dental tech. Was impressed by the thoroughness of protection to my lips, cheeks and gums, which can be irritated by the lightening goop. The tech warned me of... READ MORE

Time Will Tell - Oak Brook, IL

I saw a recent photo and my teeth were looking pretty yellow. I drink several cups of coffee a day and the yellowing was probably a result of aging and the coffee. After reading the reviews, I was pretty anxious about it as my teeth were sensitive to the whitening trays provided by a... READ MORE

No Pain! Fair Results - Germantown, TN

I have always had VERY sensitive teeth and gums and so was anxious about trying Zoom after all the reviews I have read about pain. However, I did not experience ANY pain or discomfort during or after the Zoom treatment. The result was only a couple of shades brighter. I got a great price through... READ MORE

Painful! - Sydney, AU

I had this treatment done approximately 4 months ago. Never again. Although i love the result (my teeth are indeed a few shades lighter), the post treatment pain was absolutely excrutiating. Actually, the pain started mid way through the procedure, but the dentist kept leaving me alone in a room... READ MORE

Not As Bad As the Reviews Suggested - Florence, KY

Not a day at the beach but well worth the results. I was anxious after reading the reviews but truly not a bad experience. I even had my teeth cleaned right before the whitening. I was in the office for 3 hours with the cleaning and whitening. Seriously, worth the time and money. I've tried... READ MORE
