Is ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Right for You?
Are you unhappy with the way your smile looks right now? Many of our patients come to us feeling the same but are unsure of how to achieve transformative results. If your problem is tooth discoloration, our Columbus, OH, cosmetic dentist can introduce you to Zoom teeth whitening which can brighten your teeth by multiple shades in just one visit.
Here’s how professional teeth whitening stacks up against what you might grab off the shelf as well as 3 benefits of choosing Zoom.
How Zoom Compares to Store-Bought Whitening Products
Walk down the oral care aisle in the supermarket and you’ll see countless products promising pearly whites in just a few uses. While somedo leave your teeth looking brighter, results are not always long-lasting.
The ingredients often contained in theseare also damaging to teeth. For example, many boast about using charcoal to whiten teeth but fail to warn that charcoal is abrasive and can wear away at your natural enamel. Others are made with higher than recommended levels of bleach or hydrogen peroxide.

Zoom in-office teeth whitening is trusted by dental professionals nationwide and is clinically proven to be effective. The procedure is also done under the supervision of Dr. Gibson and assisting staff so you’ll have trained eyes monitoring the entire process.
We Offer Zoom Whitening Because of Its:
Getting whiter teeth doesn’t have to be a complicated process. When you visit our West Columbus, OH, dental office, we’ll sit down with you to discuss your dental treatment options before moving forward with a plan that is right for you. For basic treatment, Dr. Gibson will paint whitening varnish on your teeth before putting on a coat of quick-drying sealant. After a half-hour has passed, you will be able to easily remove the varnish and sealant by brushing or wiping it away to reveal a whiter smile.
If yourare more severe, we recommend a more involved treatment that is broken into three 15-minute sessions during the course of your visit. We will apply the whitening gel to your teeth and use our WhiteSpeed LED lamp so that you don’t have to be inconvenienced by long waiting times. After your dental procedure, we will provide you with a special care package so that you can maintain the look of your smile and manage any resulting discomfort from home.
Depending on your preferences, you can achieve a whiter smile inside our office or on your own thanks to take-home teeth whitening supplies provided by Dr. Gibson. When considering whether you would like treatment in or out of the office, please feel free to start a conversation with one of our dental hygienists.
We can help you make a decision that will be right for your unique circumstances. Whether you are able to do the treatment at home will depend on the severity of your case and how much time you want to spend during the whitening process.
3. Minimal Resulting Sensitivity
Do you have sensitive teeth? The unique formula used for the whitening varnish or gel will not irritate your teeth or gums, which is why it is loved and trusted by so many people. While some may still notice a few “zingers”, most of our patients feel as though a whiter smile is worth the temporary discomfort.
After the procedure, any discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication and thesyringe we give you after your procedure. 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 that one person’s experience doesn’t have to define your own personal experience with Zoom teeth whitening.
If at any time during the procedure you feel that the pain is unbearable, we will stop until you are able to continue. We can also stop the procedure entirely if you feel it is necessary. At Gibson Dental, we do our best to make sure that you always feel in control of your treatment.
