Is ZOOM! Teeth Whitening Right for You?

West Columbus Oh Zoom Whitening Dentist

Are you unhappy with the way your smile looks right now? Many of our patients wish to achieve beautiful smiles but are unsure of how to get there. At Gibson Dental, our teeth whitening dentists make it our mission to educate patients on their options so that they can achieve a whiter smile that looks natural.

Zoom Teeth Whitening is a method trusted by dentists for years, so there’s no reason to feel insecure about your smile for any longer. Before undergoing any dental procedure, it is important to explore the risks and benefits. When you visit our office, be prepared to discuss the following aspects of Zoom Teeth Whitening with your dentist.


Getting whiter teeth doesn’t have to be a complicated process. When you visit our office, we sit down with you to discuss your dental treatment options before moving forward with a plan that is right for you. For basic treatment, one of our dentists 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 your case is more severe, we will 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 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 treatment, you can achieve a whiter smile at home, with just a few simple supplies offered by your dentist. 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.


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 people may feel a few “zingers”, most of our patients feel as though a whiter smile is worth the temporary discomfort.

After the procedure, some of our patients may feel some slight pain, which can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication and the Relief ACP Oral Care gel syringe 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.

Our experienced dentists are very considerate of our patient’s needs. 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.
