Marietta Residents Ask: Is Zoom!® Teeth Whitening Safe?

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening in Atlanta and Marietta, GAZoom!® whitening is a quick and easy procedure that will whiten your teeth and give you the bright smile you’ve always wanted.

What Is Zoom!® Whitening?

Over time our teeth become discolored due to staining and wear and tear. Zoom!® whitening exfoliates the stains inside your teeth so they can go back to being their natural color. During the treatment, a hydrogen peroxide gel of 25 percent is used through three 15-minute sessions. Your lips, gums and eyes are protected and covered from the UV light, which activates the hydrogen peroxide. Between each session, the gel is removed from the surface of your teeth and a fresh layer of whitening gel is used.

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening does not go through plaque, so it is best to get a professional cleaning before undergoing Zoom!® treatments.

Zoom!® brings your teeth back to their natural shade. But since every person’s natural tooth color is different, no two patients will have the same results.

Is Zoom!® Whitening Safe?

Yes, Zoom!® whitening is safe. It has gone through extensive clinical studies and research over the years through various dental offices and laboratories. The best way to ensure a positive result is to have a certified, licensed dentist who has done the procedure multiple times and has a portfolio of patients who have had the procedure done.

Zoom!® is not recommended for lactating or pregnant women or children under the age of 13.

There are no serious side effects to the Zoom!® whitening process; however, there can be some sensitivity and a little pain. How you react to the treatment will depend upon how sensitive your teeth are.

There can be some cases where a small amount of the hydrogen peroxide goes past the protective barriers. This makes the gums a little sore, and those sections of the gums may turn white in color. However, this effect will only last about 48 hours after the treatment has been completed.
