Zoom whitening Post Care
ZOOM! In Office Whitening Post Care Instructions
(To be followed for the first 48 hours after the procedure)
CONGRATULATIONS! You have just experienced a revolutionary tooth whitening
procedure. The next 48 hours are important in enhancing and maximizing your whitening
results for a long lasting, bright and healthy smile.
Everyone’s teeth have a protective layer called the acquired pellicle. This layer
contains the surface dental stains and is removed during a regular dental cleaning or the
whitening process. It takes 12 to 24 hours for the barrier to fully develop again.Drink only
water for the first hour after your Zoom procedure. To maximize the whitening, we ask that
for the next 48 hours, you DO NOT consume dark or yellow staining substances such as:
-All Tobacco Products
-Avoid Colored Lipstick
-Coffee / Tea
-Lettuce & tomatoes
-Mustard / Ketchup
you must not use any colored toothpastes or gels for the first 48 hours. In
addition, do not use any colored mouthwash or home fluoride treatments. If your daily
homecare involves the use of Peridex (Chlorhexidine), please wait 48 hours before continuing
the usage of this product.
If post operative sensitivity occurs,
I chew sugarless gum to reduce the peroxide levels, take
an Advil or Tylenol, or what you would normally use for a headache, and brush with Sensodyne. Use
Vitamin E soft gel capsules( puncture and use gel inside capsule) to relieve any discomfort.
