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 ›

Not Sure What to Think - Stockton, CA

I just got the zoom whitening done last Monday, and my teeth were pretty yellow when I first went in. I went through all 4 rounds without any pain, but once I got in my car the zingers hit me. Also, my teeth didn't come out white , but closer to it. I went back in today to ask if there was... READ MORE

Good Results, but It Comes with Some Pain - Brisbane, AU

I'm a 24 male, my teeth have a good alignment and I have small fluorosis stains on one of my front teeth.

The Experience Was Uncomfortable but Worth It -O Fallon, MO

I decided to have my teeth whitened before going off to college next week. I went through a total of 3 sessions that were each 15 minutes long.

The Take Home Trays Are Crucial! - New York, NY

I decided to get teeth whitening before I did color shade match for my new crowns.

Definitely Worth It! - Wichita, KS

Before Zoom my teeth were horribly yellow, even at times looking orange. I was always so embarrassed by the color of my teeth.

It's Good As Long As You're Realistic About The Results - Dallas, TX

The pros. Yes it works but for the price it better or this wouldn't be a widely known method for whitening teeth.

I had Zoom done today. I experienced only one or two Zingers during the treatment. But was shocked that my teeth only changed 1 1/2 shades after 3 treatments.

Awesome Results - Belmont, NH

I had the Zoom performed a week ago. It was well worth the money. I must have had a very exerienced dental assistant do the procedure as it was easy. I had one small "zing" but nothing after the treatment. I went up 7 shades and a week later, it still looks great.  I did stop the... READ MORE
