Zoom! In Office Whitening Post-Operative Instructions

Sensitivity may occur after Zoom! whitening treatment. If for some reason you do experience post-op sensitivity, it can be treated with over-the-counter analgesics. It is also helpful to use Sensodyne for a few days before the whitening treatment.

Color Spotting on the teeth may occur after Zoom! In-Office Whitening due to temporary dehydration of the teeth. This should diminish within a few days after treatment. Prolonged color spotting is due to hypocalcifications already present on the tooth. If you already have color variations in your tooth, it will make them even more apparent, therefore making you not an ideal candidate for Zoom! whitening.

Restorations (fillings/veneers/crowns) will not lighten with Zoom! treatment. Make sure to wait 4 weeks following whitening treatment to allow the shade of your teeth to stabilize if you have new restorations planned in the future (especially in the esthetic zone).

Avoid foods or drinks that stain following the whitening procedure, i.e. brown or red drinks/foods such as: 

  • Red wine, dark sodas, coffee, tea
  • Grapes or any fruit with color
  • Mustard or Ketchup
  • Red sauces
  • Soy sauce or steak sauce
  • Smoking and Lipstick
  • Red meat (steak or hamburger) 

If provided with take home whitening treatment, use according to manufacturer's instructions to your discretion. These are meant as touch up/maintenance only.
