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 ›

Great Results-no Pain

My teeth were not that yellow to begin with, but I did want a bit of 'brightening'. I decided on zoom for immediate results. I had a couple zingers right after the procedure, but no sensitivity or pain. I love the results and would totally recommend it to friends & family :) READ MORE

Zoom Teeth Whitening, It Works, but It Hurts!

I had this procedure done yesterday to prepare for veneers that I'm gettin on my four front teeth in a few weeks. About 3 weeks ago, my dentist gave me toothpaste containing a strong amount of fluoride which was to help in desensitizing the teeth. I was supposed to brush 2-3 times a day,... READ MORE

Two weeks before the actual treatment, I was given a fluoride paste to make my teeth less sensitive during the procedure and also did the molding for the trays. When I went in for the procedure, the hygienist and the dentist were very accommodating. They made sure to cover everything but my... READ MORE

Inhumane Torture

Had the most painful side effects after a procedure I've ever experienced. Would not recommend this. First off my gums were shielded. Had a slight burn & the dental assistant adjusted the shielding. That went away. But it was afterwards, within 30 min. of walking out of the office,... READ MORE


Prior to having the zoom 3 whitening procedure performed by my dentist, I did much research and read MANY reviews. All but a few described extreme pain. But, having coffee stained yellow teeth and only being 30 I went for it anyways. At the dentist the hygentist performed the entire procedure... READ MORE

No Change in my Teeth

I've never been able to follow through on a full treatment with white strips or at-home trays, either from the dentist or drug store, due to pain and sensitivity or chemical burns to my gums. So I was really scared of trying Zoom. The good news is that it didn't hurt! I was expecting to be in a... READ MORE

Zoom: Great Results with Some Pain

I first tried non-Zoom whitening with a dentist, plus at an at home whitening kit. Results were minimal. Finally, I decided to try in-office Zoom with another dentist. *Much whiter!!* Very happy!! Definitely had pain afterward for about 12 hours-- in my case an overall ache, plus cold... READ MORE

Great Experience with Zoom, No Pain!

I visited Dr. George's office in UTC (San Diego near La Jolla) yesterday for my first ever in office whitening treatment. I was scared to death after reading all the negative reviews on this site.

I decided to do this procedure because I've always wanted whiter teeth and figured why not. The procedure was 4, 15 minute long sessions which i did all 4 on high level, no problem.

Average for Tetracycline Stains and Poor Customer Service. Fort Atkinson, WI

I have had stains on my teeth since a young child due to Tetracycline medication given to me for illnesses. The procedure did lighten my teeth a small amount, but not enough to justify the cost. The procedure itself was a little painful at times, but I did endure it. The pain is from the... READ MORE
