We had a team "coach" come into our office and she wants us to promote the Zoom bleach system. We do have a light here but I am not a big fan of the process.

I am curious how my colleges on the forum feel about the zoom whitening so I can show the "coach" what the general consensus is

You mean an opinion other than it doesn't work?

The light does a great job of dessicating the teeth so they get real sensitive. They also get lighter in shade until you turn the light off and they rehydrate. The pt knows you did something 'cause they hurt like hell, so you're a hero! Maybe you better trust "coach John" even though I'm sure he's not as pretty as your other "coach". Best of luck - Tom

I heard a lecturer who has done some research on whitening say that the safest and simplest method is to use 10% carbamide peroxide in trays. You may have to use the trays a longer time, since it is a lower concentration of gel, but the teeth will eventually get as white as they can and with this concentration you will have less problems with sensitivity.
Would the Apex forum agree with these comments?

Low and slow. It works. It's what we do.

As Tom mentioned, all the light process does it desiccate the teeth.

The research was mostly done by an Indiana University dentist. In a personal communiction, he said that higher concentrations bleach faster and the result has less durability. Low and slow has significantly less side effects and risks. Low and slow also demonstrates less frequent need for touch-ups. He saw no reason to utilize concentrations that are above those that have approval status.
