Zoom Whitening Dentist Jacksonville FL

Consultation for Zoom Whitening

Most people are candidates for Zoom whitening, but it’s important to remember that each patient is different. For example, you may not be the best candidate for Zoom if you have a history of tooth sensitivity or gum disease.

Achieving a whiter smile doesn’t have to be complicated. During your consultation, our teeth whitening dentist will discuss your treatment options before moving forward with a plan that is right for you.

Zoom Teeth Whitening Treatment

An appointment for Philips Zoom whitening is broken into smaller sessions. At the start of these sessions, we will apply a hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth and use our lamp to further activate the whitening process.

Once all the sessions are complete, we’ll give you a special care package so that you can maintain the look of your smile. We’ll also advise you on how to best manage any resulting discomfort from home.

In-Office Whitening vs. Take-Home Trays

If you have slight tooth discoloration, you may be able to whiten teeth at home with custom whitening trays. When considering whether you would like professional teeth whiteningin or out of the office, we recommend speaking with our cosmetic dentist in Jacksonville, FL.

Dr. West will be able to help you make a decision that will be right for your unique circumstances. Whether you are able to do treatment at home will depend on the severity of your case and how much time you want to spend during the whitening process.

Aftercare Instructions

We make every effort to prevent discomfort during and after Zoom whitening. The unique formula used for the whitening gel will not irritate your teeth or gums, which is why it is loved and trusted by so many people.

While some people may feel a few “zingers”, most of our patients feel as though a whiter smile is worth the temporary discomfort. If at any time during the procedure you feel the pain is too much, be sure to alert Dr. West or her assistant. They will stop treatment until you’re ready to continue.

After the procedure, some of our patients may feel some slight pain, which can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication and anything else Dr. West might recommend for you after in-office Zoom whitening. However, don’t let your worry of temporary discomfort discourage you from seeking professional help with your smile.

Different people have different pain thresholds, which means you shouldn’t let one person’s experience define your own personal experience with Zoom teeth whitening.
