I Got Zoom Teeth Whitening For The First Time | Macro Beauty | Refinery29

A smile means to me that you are secure with yourself and confident enough to showcase that to the entire world. My name is Shrena Nangia and I’m getting my teeth whitened today. I’m 22 years old and I’m from Kathmandu,
Nepal but I live in L.A. My teeth are definitely an insecurity or at least something that I’m conscious about. When I post a picture on social media I tend to smile with my mouth closed so that they don’t get shown to the world. And when I do smile with my teeth I make sure to use a little app to make them brighter. For as long as I can remember, my teeth have had a slight yellow tint to them. But recently they have been a little bit more stained, probably because of the really bad caffeine addiction that I have, so I’m really excited to have my teeth whitened. I feel like I’m definitely be more confident
once my teeth have been whitened because I’ll feel like I’ll be able to smile more and I won’t have to rely on any apps to make me feel better. I’m Dr. Erin Cohen. And I’m Dr. Monica Madan. And we are the founders of Beverly Hills Orthodontics. I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I went to the University of Washington for
my orthodontic training. I came back here to Los Angeles and within a year met Erin. I grew up in a very small town in southwestern Pennsylvania and I moved to New York City. I stumbled into Columbia University for dental school. We have a very well-rounded practice. Our main service is Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. We also offer teeth whitening. A lot of patience love to teeth whiten. Come right in, I’m Dr. Cohen. Have a seat! When I first met Shrena, when she walked in, I saw a lot of promise in her smile. They could have been tolerated to be slightly whiter. I’m a little nervous about having my mouth exposed for like an hour. I do have a little spot up front where it
is chipped, so that could be a little sensitive. We are going to start your bleach procedure, we are going to use Zoom which is an in-office procedure that is about an hour long. It’s about three sessions of 15 minutes
each. And you are going to be about 8-10 shades whiter than you are now. We use the cheek retractors that will protect the patient’s tongue and lips from also getting bleached and protective eyewear. The active ingredient of the whitening gel
is hydrogen peroxide for the Zoom bleaching. And there is amorphous calcium phosphate in there that really helps re-mineralize and reduce sensitivity. And then there is a light that activates it. Teeth whitening does not damage teeth enamel because it is able to bleach deeply into the tooth without taking away any of the structure. Within three 15 minute sessions you’ve gone 8-10 shades lighter. Oh my gosh it looks so good! I absolutely loved it. It was so much easier and quicker than I thought it was going to be. My favorite part of the procedure was definitely the results. As soon as I looked at the mirror it was kind of unbelievable, like I expected it to be bright and fake looking, but the natural results really wowed me. I felt so much more confident. My least favorite part would definitely be
the slight sensitivity. I don’t feel the need to use a teeth whitening app anymore because my teeth look bright and natural. Shrena was a really great example of a great result for an average person. She went to one of our brightest shades and that really was within the 45 minutes. Right after the procedure you want to make sure that you don’t drink anything that can stain, like coffee, red wine, tea, you know berries. Those sort of things for about 24 hours. So the after care process after you’ve had
an office bleaching is really to judge when you feel like you need a touch up. If you notice your smile is dulling, you can
come back for another in office treatment but most commonly patients will take home a set of overnight or day time bleaching trays and we can provide that with the gel solution. I won’t be smilizing in my pictures in my
social media anymore. You will definitely be seeing a nice big smile. Thank you so much for watching Refinery29. To watch more videos, click here. And to subscribe, click here.

  3. Why do you need to include these weird ASMR-like sounds in these videos??? They're annoying and don't add anything to the video…

  4. Ive gotten this done twice before and id never recommend it. My teeth were insanely sensitive for a week after getting it done both times. And during the process I got intermittent sharp stabs of pain in my gums

  5. It’s rlly sad that this girl feels insecure about her teeth because she’s so beautiful and seems rlly sweet

  6. I think veneers would be helpful or braces to straighten them FIRST then whiten. I know this cause I have crooked teeth and I'm going through that process

  7. they made her teeth look more yellow in the ''after'' shots 4:02 than they were in the beginning of the video 1:00 to make a more dramatic difference
