Is Zoom whitening treatment safe for Los Angeles, CA area patients?


Dr. Don Mungcal and the team at Downtown Dental encourage patients to book an appointment to learn about professional whitening solutions, including the Zoom in-office whitening treatment.
Patients in the Los Angeles, CA area who are ready to brighten their smiles often turn to their local drugstore to purchase whitening treatments in the oral healthcare aisle. However, many patients find that these treatment options fall short of providing real results. Instead, Dr. Don Mungcal and the team at Downtown Dental encourage patients to book an appointment to learn about professional whitening solutions, including the Zoom in-office whitening treatment.

What is Zoom?

Zoom is a specialized bleaching service that is available at Downtown Dental for patients who want amazing, same-day whitening results. Our professionals, including Dr. Don Mungcal, find that this treatment can whiten up to eight shades brighter and provide patients with noticeably beautiful teeth in just a short period of time. In one appointment, patients can feel confident in their smile and go about their day with brilliant teeth.

The Zoom whitening system starts with a professional cleaning by one of our dental hygienists to remove plaque and tartar which may inhibit the bleaching gel from working. Then, a barrier gel is placed on the gums to protect soft tissue from the whitening gel. The whitening gel is then administered onto the surfaces of the teeth and activated with a special light to pull stains and discoloration from deep within the tooth enamel. Then the teeth and gums are cleaned one last time. Within one two-hour visit, patients can boost their confidence and go about the rest of their day with a rejuvenated smile.

Is Zoom whitening safe?

Yes! Zoom whitening is administered by our team of professionals to ensure safety and efficiency. We encourage patients to ask about the treatment and learn about the steps we take to provide this treatment. We want our patients to understand that every procedure performed in our practice is safe.

Who is a candidate for Zoom whitening treatment in Los Angeles?

Zoom is a specialized bleaching service that is available at Downtown Dental for patients who want amazing, same-day whitening results.
Patients without restorations are often the best candidates for Zoom whitening. This is because the whitening treatment will not impact restorations in the smile, such as porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, or composite resin bonding. If patients move forward with whitening, their restorations may appear discolored and will need to be replaced. Patients who are serious about whitening their smile and keeping it that way may want to ask about replacing their dental restorations once they have completed their whitening treatment, and then move forward with our take-home options to maintain results.

What other options are available at Downtown Dental?

Patients are often interested in learning about their options when they are faced with dental procedures such as this. In addition to the Zoom whitening services, we also provide alternatives. We offer a take-home whitening kit, which includes a custom-made whitening tray and whitening gel that patients can use at home to brighten their smile gradually over the course of several days and weeks. Some patients who obtain their whitening trays during their routine dental appointments will be excited to learn about our Whitening for Life program, in which patients are given whitening gel at each recall appointment for free, to continually brighten their smile at home. This is a great way to ensure patients make their regular appointments for cleanings and examinations while giving them the opportunity to keep their smiles beautiful for many years to come.

For patients who have minor discoloration issues, such as a single tooth that may be stained or discolored, we may suggest whitening with the use of dental restorations. Dental restorations may include porcelain veneers or crowns that are placed over the problematic teeth to immediately resolve an issue with a single tooth. These are the other solutions that our team of professionals may suggest for specific dental discoloration.

"I am a legit Patient at this practice. The Doctor is amazing - educated, skilled and patient. Allison, my Dental Hygienist, is really friendly, knowledgeable and proactive about her patients' oral health. In my experience, the office staff at Downtown Dental is always professional, friendly, and thoughtful about my time. Plus, they offer reasonable financing! If you're honest about your budget (for people like me who don't have dental insurance), they can often work with you to stay within budget. I also learned that they use the best equipment in their field and staff gets training often on new dental techniques. If you are someone who works, resides or likes to visit Downtown - this is an especially excellent place to see the dentist periodically.

Downtown Dental is a fantastic Dental practice in the heart of the city. They are located near LA's Cultural hub of museums, concert halls and the like (The Broad, MOCA + more ). But don't let all that (magic) discourage you from making your appointment, because traffic is usually very smooth on Grand and getting in and out of their secure and validated parking lot (in their building) is a breeze. They also have 2 e-car charging stations if that's how you roll. If you work in DTLA, like many, you can even get a lunchtime cleaning!

Sidebar: The office is located inside a gorgeous apartment building, full of high end furnishings, accentuated with stunning street art. You may have even passed by & seen the Subway flags at street level- the dental office is right upstairs. It's worth a try, especially if you want great oral health, love art, culture and the city!"
"Still the best I've ever been to! The entire staff is more than knowledgeable & helpful!

Don't waste your time going to other places, this dentist & his team are your best bet!

They are courteous, flexible, and above all: PROFESSIONAL."
"What an amazing staff and dental team!!

I had four front crowns and 2 root canals done all in about 3 hours! It was pain free! Dr Mungcal was fast and I didn't feel a thing! People compliment my teeth all the time! ...Little do they know they're fake! Very grateful!!! I am in Invisalign now and love how it stopped me from clenching and grinding my teeth! My teeth and gums are healthy because of all the amazing dental work they have done and continue to do!! Oh ...And they offered nitrous which made the whole experience awesome! Go here if you want dental work done right!!"
"Downtown dental made my cavity experience as painless as possible, and the technology they use is so up to date and accurate.

The staff are also very friendly and know the best habits for having a healthy mouth.
So glad I started going here!"
"Absolutely the best dental office! In all reality I used to hate going to the dentist I would cancel my appointments at my old Drs office all the time !! But the Hygienists and the staff in general are so welcoming and make you wanna keep coming back. They are always ready to deliver and Allison did an amazing job on my teeth cleaning thank you for that"
"This review is long overdue. I've been a patient at downtown dental since 2005 and have had nothing but positive experiences. I've had quite a bit of dental work and when I had a cracked crown recently, they scheduled me the next day and replaced it at no charge. They would have scheduled me that day but sadly, I'm no longer a patient as I've moved to NorCal. I felt like they really went out of the way to accommodate me and I appreciate that! Thanks guys!!"
"Great practice, the doctors and assistants are very professional, helpful and pleasant. They make dental appointments almost enjoyable...not something I thought possible!

Katie the hygienist is not only gentle, professional and very professional but also inspiring. She makes you want to have the best gums in Los Angeles.

Thank you guys!"
"The team at Downtown Dental are the best! They have done both an implant and Invisalign for me. They keep me informed about all the steps and always get me in and out quickly! I love that they can do everything right in their own offices too."
"My story is: I chipped a took eating cereal! Who does that!?! (The cereal was crunchy I'll admit). I went to Downtown Dental and Dr. Mungcal evaluated my situation and realized my bite needed to be adjusted. I grind my teeth at night also so the combination of it all was wearing my teeth down. He recommended invisalign to align my bite. I was hesitant because it's pricey was SO WORTH IT!!! 8 months later, my bite is fixed and aligned and my teeth are straighter which is a bonus! I am only 34 and I want to keep my teeth healthy and strong for a long time! Dr. Mungcal and the entire staff are amazing and took GREAT care of me. You can rest assured you will be taken care of by them!"
"Came to downtown dental with my husband for his first dental implant. He was very nervous on getting this procedure done.. From his experience he said the staff were super friendly made him feel very welcomed..the dentist made his procedure quick and painless my husband didn't even need his medication for the swelling or pain ... Highly recommend... We Will be coming here from now on for our dental needs."
