Home care instructions for ZOOM in-chair whitening
In your take home whitening kit you will receive the following:
How to apply the whitening gel
After you have brushed and flossed your teeth:
Some people find their gums peel around where the trays sit. This is just the dead layer of skin coming off, but can make the gums a little tender. This usually happens when you use too much solution.
Top-up whitening gel
The colour of your teeth will continue to brighten 72 hours after the procedure.
After the 72 hour period, if you want your teeth to be even whiter, use the top–up whitening gel. Alternatively, the top-up whitening gel can be kept for future touch-up of the colour.
Top-up gel can be used for up to 3 sessions.
Use 2 x daily for 15 minutes or 1x day for 30 mins.
After the ZOOM procedure, it’s normal for teeth to gradually regress somewhat in colour over time. The degree of regression can be affected by diet and lifestyle choices such as black coffee, red wine, tea, curry, beetroot juice, soy sauce, coke etc. It is recommended that you avoid eating and drinking heavily coloured foods and liquids for one week after the ZOOM in-office whitening procedure.
During the first 48 hours after ZOOM treatment, some people can experience some tooth sensitivity or pain. This is normal and usually mild, but it can be worse in susceptible individuals.
Tooth sensitivity or pain following a ZOOM treatment should subside within 48 hours, but in rare cases can persist for longer periods of time.
Keep your trays safe so that you can use them again year after year. Whitening solution can be purchased directly from us as required.
