Pre Zoom – five days before treatment – apply GC Tooth Mousse twice daily. Place the mousse directly onto the teeth, or use a mouth tray. This will help to reduce sensitivity.
Stop using the GC Tooth Mousse 24 hours prior to the procedure.
After Zoom apply the mousse twice daily for three to five days, as required.
If you experience sensitivity, take two paracetamol tablets prior to going to bed. (We recommend paracetamol, rather than ibuprofen, as paracetamol is safer for the majority of patients and doesn’t produce photosensitivity reactions.)
