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 ›

beware don't zoom! Orange County, CA

I have always had really white teeth. I wanted them to be even whiter so I decided to Zoom. It was the worst experience ever. I have never had a cavity, and have no gum disease. I was in extreme pain. The whiter effect lasted a week or two, and I noticed the enamel wearing off my teeth. Now I... READ MORE

I had the zoom whitening done so that my teeth better matched my bridge instead of redoing my bridge. - Hagerstown, MD

I had the zoom whitening done so that my teeth better matched my bridge instead of redoing my bridge. They hygienist was fantastic and made sure the barrier was on my gums and protected them. I had no issues with the procedure at all. The next day my teeth were definitely a little sensitive but... READ MORE

Zoom Whitening Is NOT Worth It!! - Philadelphia, PA

Had my teeth whitened using Zoom. It did absolutely nothing except hurt. I was expecting descent results, like if I used Crest White Strips every day for a few months or something..but nothing happened at all. It hurt really bad, it was hard to eat for 2 days afterward and again, there was... READ MORE

15 Years Old - Ottawa, IL

I had wanted my teeth whitened since I could remember and now that I had a job and could afford to purchase it for myself I did. I went into the consultation very pessimistic due to all of the reviews saying how terrible it was. The doctor was extremely nice and very knowledgeable. These... READ MORE

100% Painless, but Annoying - Marina Del Rey, CA

I got a coupon from my local paper for a new dentist trying to build the practice. Offering ZOOM for $89.99. I was nervous having read all about the pain. The hygienist was bad, roughly cleaning my teeth, sanding my gums, disorganized, sloppy, illogical. But the dentist, who noted the color... READ MORE

The Minimum Result That Was Achieved Disappeared After 2 Days! - Bocholt, DE

Zoom is not worth a penny. The almost invisible result (25% peroxide 3 times 15 minutes) disappeared after 2 days. Today (the third day after the treatment) I'm back to square one. I had better results after using White Crest strips only 4 times. I have bleached my teeth before, with a different... READ MORE

Just Wanted Whiter Teeth

Just to let you know that my root canal was less painful. I love the results but if I had known of the horrible pain I was going to be in after I would have not done it! I took extra strength Tylenol after the root canal & had no pain. Did the same after Zoom & it did not even touch the pain!... READ MORE

Didn't Fix Intrinsic Stains - Houston, TX

I have grey-blueish intrinsic staining in my lower front teeth from years of taking the antibiotic mynocin for acne. the zoom treatment helped minimally; but not worth the cost and, well, discomfort. 2 items: it took a long time sitting in the dental chair-to the point where i was getting...

Zoom Whitening - Orlando, FL

Got a groupon deal for 100.00 for 3 15 minute sessions, this is 1st time with a new dentist, he took exrays and cleaned my teeth two weeks ago. He didnt give me any instructions on what to expect or if I should take advil, etc before procedure. Since reading reviews will take a combo of... READ MORE

My experience was a wonderful experience all together. The staff a whole took care of me and provided the most comfort possible. I would recommend this to anybody who would want to get a reduction.

If You Have Even Mildly Sensitive Teeth DO NOT DO THIS PROCEDURE - Simi Valley, CA

I went in for a routine checkup and both the assistant and dentist said i had "perfect teeth" for a whitening; I've been noticing my yellowing teeth for some time, I've never had a whitening nor used whitening products other than toothpaste and mouthwash so I decided why the heck not. They told... READ MORE

Skip Zoom Unless You Have Stains That At-home Treatments Have Not Fixed - New York, NY

Apparently, there are different types of machines: Zoom! and Zoom! 2. The second supposedly works better. I bought a $100 deal for Zoom whitening and am pretty sure it was the older version. I regret the purchase because the improvement was very difficult to notice. I already have white... READ MORE

Somewhat Painful, but Great Results! - Pittsburgh, PA

I was aware of the "zingers" felt by those before and after the treatment as the office staff at Aspen Dental warned me prior to making the appointment for the whitening. Prior to my appointment I took 600mg of Ibuprofen. I did 3 cycles on high and started feeling the zingers in the middle of... READ MORE

Preparation Makes All the Difference. - Toronto, ON

First I will say I had a great experience with this procedure. I was rather concerned since I had read most of the reviews on here just prior to heading in for my session and it really seemed like most people have a terrible time with this. One thing I must point out is that most people who... READ MORE

Zoom Treatment Wooo - Tulsa, OK

I have always been the type of person that takes care of my teeth as fat as brushing, flossing, etc. But due to me taking medication my teeth wasn't as white as I wanted to be thru the years. So I didn't to get the Zoom treatment prior to the treatment. My dentist gave a fluoride toothpaste to... READ MORE

Worth the Zings! - San Francisco, CA

The dental hygienist that performed my zoom procedure did a great job. there was no pain during the procedure. the only discomforts came from having to sit there for 45 minutes (3 intervals at 15 min each) with my mouth propped open, unable to move and the occasional sharp shooting pains (zings)...

Thank You Dr. Fiss! - Chicago, IL

Wow!!! That is the first word that comes to mind! This is by far, hands down, the best way to see the dentist! I found Dr. Fiss online and was impressed by his credentials and the amount of information and services he provides. I made an appointment online right away and I have to say I was... READ MORE

Horrible Procedure! - Long Island, NY

Today I had Zoom Whitening done and it definitely wasn't worth it. I only did 2 - 15 minute sessions because the pain was horrible during the second session. My teeth are whiter but it definitely isn't worth the pain and money from this procedure!!! I don't think that I would ever do this nor... READ MORE
