Many patients ask us whether there are differences between take-home teeth whitening kits and the Zoom in-chair laser treatment. The differences are quite significant, but there are no hard and fast rules for choosing either.
Which procedure you decide to choose all comes down to personal preference, how much you are willing to spend on teeth whitening as well as your sensitivity tolerance.
The Zoom professional whitening option is slightly more costly compared to home-use solutions, but provides a more secure method of whitening, as it is performed by a dental professional.
Results can be more precise and are seen immediately after a single appointment. For those with more sensitive teeth, who do not mind a longer process, a professional take home whitening kit is the way to go! This option is also slightly less expensive. However, keep in mind that it will require discipline and consistency.
You should ideally use the system for 15-minutes every day before going to bed. An added bonus of the take home kit is that you are able to maintain your results for as long as you desire. Refill bleach tubes can be purchased through the practice.
No, professional teeth whitening will not cause pain. However, tooth sensitivity during treatment is completely normal and occurs due to dehydration of your teeth. Nevertheless, 50% of patients experience little to no sensitivity and are able to sit through the entire procedure.
The other 50% of patients are unable to complete the full four rounds due to sensitivity. If you are a person with more sensitive teeth, there are a few things you can do at home to tackle this before your treatment. For example, using sensitive toothpaste for at least 1 month prior to the procedure is a great start.
