You know that you’re going to be extremely thrilled with the results of your Zoom! Whitening treatment. However, when you think about the days, weeks, months, years (you get the idea) that follow, you might wonder how the treatment is going to affect your life. Will you be able to eat whatever you want? Are your teeth going to feel weird or will they feel normal? As you might imagine, we receive these questions quite frequently and are more than pleased to provide you with answers, so you can feel confident about your future vibrant smile.

Skip Staining Stuff For Two Days

On a daily basis, your teeth aren’t going to pick up stains immediately. However, right after Zoom! Whitening, your teeth are much more susceptible to incurring stains for about two days. Then, they go back to their normal selves, which means they are nice and resistant to discoloration. Translation: Avoid food and beverages that are very pigmented for about 48 hours, so your whitening treatment’s results stay in place.

Also, think about anything other than food or beverages that might come into contact with your smile. Do you usually wear red lipstick? Use blue mouthwash? Skip it for a couple days as contact with your teeth can lead to stains for 48 hours after Zoom! Whitening. Then, it’s back to life as usual.

Address Minor Sensitivity

It’s possible to experience a bit of sensitivity as the result of your Zoom! Whitening treatment. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever and go ahead and use toothpaste formulated for sensitivity. The issue will resolve on its own quite quickly.
