Will Zoom! Whitening Hurt My Teeth?

At Greenspoint Dental we offer the Zoom! Teeth Whitening system to provide patients with significantly whiter teeth in just one easy appointment. During the Zoom! procedure, a member of our team will apply a gel to the surface of your teeth and then use a special light to activate the gel’s whitening potential. You should be able to tell a difference in your smile immediately after treatment. While some patients have reported mild sensitivity after the procedure, any pain usually subsides after a few days and can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen. Zoom! Teeth Whitening has not been known to cause any permanent harm to the tooth surfaces. If you’re looking into at-home whitening remedies, it’s important to consult with your dentist first. Using a whitening product incorrectly or too often can cause significant tooth pain and may even damage the tooth root. Get your dentist’s advice before trying out any store-bought whitening treatment. Whitening treatments won’t always give the same results and depend largely on the condition of your teeth. To find out if Zoom! Teeth Whitening is right for you, contact Greenspoint Dental today and ask to set up an appointment with Dr. Bossé.
