Wow! That’s scary. I would not have guessed it would hurt that bad. I had professional whitening done as a teenager, just with the trays you use at home, and it definitely made my teeth super sensitive, but nothing like that. Ouch!!

Have you taken some advil? Also, try holding body temp (or room temp) water in your mouth. Whitening dehydrates the teeth and makes you more sensitive.

I’m sorry! I’ve heard a lot about excruciating pain from Zoom!

I had it done too…WORST DAY EVER! It hurt sooooo bad I wanted to die that afternoon/evening. I took 6 tylenol and tried to sip on warm water while sitting in the 90+ degree heat because the air conditioning hurt my teeth. I couldn’t talk because it hurt. It was constant zaps that were so bad I seriously thought it would feel better to rip out my teeth. After 6 tylenol in a few hours and no relief, I took 2 vicodin, threw up from taking too many pain meds and went to sleep pain free. Woke up the next morning and only had slight sensitivity to cold water. The end of the pain is in sight. I promise!

Weird, Darling Husband got it done and he didn’t hurt at all. But when he went they were really careful with the blocking cream on the gums and said if he felt ANY pain to let them know

Try some senstive toothpaste while you’re doing this, the weeks leading up, and after. 

I use the crest 2 hr whitening. And my denstist offers if you come in after your cleaning, no cavities, they send you home with 6 months of whitening. So i’m going to hopfully get that next time!

Oh my gosh, i had this done and it was TERRIBLE. It hurt SO BAD. I, unlike you, did not read ahead and had NO expectation that it would hurt at all, but WTF it was terrible. I guess my teeth are whiter, but I never put in the followup trays because I was afraid it would hurt again.

AGH, what a crazy thing. 

It was better by the next day. You’ll make it!!!

My friend is a dental assistant and told me if you have trays at home or even get like a hockey teeth guard and put sensitive toothpaste like sensodyne in it. Let it sit for a while and do this everyday for a few days until it feels better.

oh, I had no idea it hurt so bad! it makes my stomach turn to think of tooth pain like that.

I had regretted cheaping out and getting the home bleaching kit from my dentist– I only saved about $100. I had the formula for sensitive teeth, so I didn’t do it every single night. but the solution was so mild, I had to keep the trays in for four hours a night!  off and on, it took me a month to get where I wanted to be, and my teeth were not very yellow in the first place.

anyway, the OP helps me realize that maybe I chose the right kit after all.

@MissSunshine: I’m glad you posted this. I actually have an appointment on September 15th to get this done. I’ve had professional teeth whitening before and I never had any problems. I did notice when I went to the dentist last, she did emphasize the “possible pain” involved. I thought, “hmm”. I’ve actually been using Colgate Whitening 3D for the past few months. I’ve noticed my teeth are extremely white now. I had thought about cancelling my dental appointment for the Zoom. I think I definitely will now.

I actually got a compliment the other night when I was out. Someone said, “wow, you’re teeth are SO white!” LOL! Guess i’ll still with the tooth paste.

@CountryGirl80: it’s just colgate 3d white tooth paste you’re using– nothing else?  that’s a good tip, any of us who whiten need something good to maintain it!

@janie-janie: Yep, just the tooth paste. I don’t drink coffee, so that rules out a lot of teeth staining. However, I do smoke. It’s an ugly habit I’ve been trying to kick for years. Luckily, I’ve always had pretty white teeth. I’ve noticed over the past few years a bit of yellowing (I’m assuming from smoking). I’ve been using the Colgate Whitening 3D for maybe 4 months now. I’ve seen a very big difference!
