10. Zoom in office whitening can brighten up to 7 shades before big event ( red carpet or wedding etc). Zoom uses a high percentage of hydrogen peroxide gel that is placed on the front surface of the teeth for about 45 minutes. A bright blue plasma light activates the gel after your gum tissue is blocked out and protected. About one in ten people have minor short-term sensitivity either during or up to 24 hours following the procedures. Use Sensodyne prior to procedure to avoid this! A clear/white diet is required for 24 hours following the procedure.
