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 ›

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

The Most Painful Experience Imaginable - Erindale, AU

Let me start off by saying that you cannot even imagine the pain that comes from the Zoom Whitening.
