ZOOM! Whitening with Dr. Kay at The Philadelphia Dental Spa – Review

A few weeks ago, I was invited by my {new} friends at the Philadelphia Dental Spa to come in and treat myself to a Zoom! Whitening experience with Dr. Kay.

Whiter teeth by a dental professional in less than an hour – I’m SO IN. 

Basically any excuse to sneak away and enjoy some solo time, sitting in a dentist chair, watching TV + listening to tunes. Sounds pretty fabulous to me.

But also – WHITE TEETH!

I’m a bit of a white teeth fanatic. You know I sell whitening toothpaste {its amazing} and my teeth are generally pretty white – even Dr. Kay complimented me on my teeth whitening! But you can always take it to the next level – which is exactly what I did during this treatment. For me, I wanted to even out my whitening on my top and bottom teeth – and of course, go a shade or two lighter if possible. Why not?!

A little about Zoom! Now virtually everyone can have beautiful white teeth safely, effectively and conveniently. Introducing the ZOOM! In-Office Whitening System, the revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It’s safe, effective and fast, very fast. In just one hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. ZOOM! Whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of ZOOM! in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual teeth whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual.

When I first got to the office, we chatted about the procedure and what to expect. Like I said, I basically got to sit back and relax for an hour, when it was time to get up -> whiter teeth!

Since I did some research before going on reviews + experiences online and didn’t see many, I figured it would be helpful to share mine with you here on the blog, for anyone who might be thinking about checking out Zoom! Here’s how it all went down:

First, they put in this super cool mouthguard of sorts, to make it easy for the Zoom! light to have access to your teeth, but also to protect your lips and tops of your gums.

Next to prep for the whitening, a gel was inserted around my teeth and over my gums – for further protection of the rest of the mouth NOT being whitened. This took a few minutes and didn’t cause any discomfort or pain. I couldn’t feel any of it- basically an easy prep before the procedure really got started.

Here’s what the gel looks like as it outlines your teeth and covers your gums.

Then its time for the Zoom! A gel is put on your teeth and this specific ZOOM! Whitening Gel is activated by a specially designed light. There are 2-4 different 15 minute sessions which can be used for each treatment, depending on sensitivity. I am typically a VERY sensitive person when it comes to teeth, but I was able to power through all 4 sessions without any sensitivity until the last 90 seconds. Then I started to feel it a bit, but it was totally worth it!

Even though I had this crazy mouth guard in and this bright light shining away – it was a super relaxing experience. I just got to sit there, watch a show on TV, listen to music of my choice {Adele!} and relax for a bit – which is hard to come by these days.

And just like that – a little over an hour later, I was super pleased with my results!

Here’s the best photo I could get to really show the drastic difference in the whitening – and it may not look like it compared to the After photo, but even before, my teeth were pretty white! But now they are seriously WHITE! And I love it!

Teeth typically become ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A five-minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. And for 24 hours after the treatment, you are to stay away from any food or drinks with any color in it, because you teeth need some time to relax a bit after the treatment, and any coloring could stain them.

Dr. Kay told me “If it could stain my white coat, it will stain your teeth.” So I kept my food + drink intake light for the rest of the day. Again, totally worth it.

Zoom! was something that I had always wanted to try, so I am very grateful for the opportunity. I had such a great experience and the team at Philadelphia Dental Spa were all sorts of amazing. Thank you so much Dr. Kay + Co. – I really appreciate it!

To all my local Philadelphia area friends, you HAVE to check out Dr. Kay and the rest of the team at the Philadelphia Dental Spa. It’s a fantastic boutique dental spa – if you are looking for new dental care or a cosmetic dentist in the area be sure to check them out! And for EVERYONE else – go get yourself some Zoom!
