Wholly moley, I write as I sit here in pain after a midnight trip to the emergency room and on Vicodin! I got a great groupon deal for zoom teeth whitening and had it done yesterday afternoon. I felt it was important to post for other brides consideror has having it done. It did whitened my teeth beautifully, and it didn’t hurt during. But about an hour after thesensitivity started and like childbirth labor it kept getting worse until I ended up in the ER.
Here is the warning/tip: The procedure dehydrates the teeth, so ask ur dentist to give you the “zoom mousse” which is an after treatment to help hydrate the poors of the teeth faster, which is shy they are sensitive. I also read to apply vitamin e directly to the gums.
The pain can last one to three days.
My results are great, but I will never do it again…. Owie-ouch

I was told by my densist after the fact (not the one that did the zoom) that I should have been using a flouride toothpaste to help with the pain. It was the worst experience ever for me!

@Mrs.SplatterPaint: very good tip! I read on another blog here that one user used sensodine toothpaste with fluoride for a couple weeks prior and it helped. My regular dentist did tell me also that fluoride helps with sensitivity. I did zoom ten years ago with no pain at all, so this came as a big shock this go round. That’s it for me, crest 3d strips from now on.

@111111: I have had it done twice. The first experience was similar to yours, it was very painful afterwards for a day or two. The second time I had it done it was painless and the results were wonderful. I think it comes down to the experience of the DDS. Literally, I could not tell I had anything done the second time and my teeth were beautifully white.
