I told a friend I was going to set an appointment to do Zoom whitening, and they told me that Luster Premium is the take home kit. Are they equal in their results?

They are two completely different systems and brands. I’m not sure why your friend thought they were the same. Luster premium also works completely differently. The light isn’t really strong enough to be effective, so I’m not sure why it is there. Also, their whitening ingredient is the Zinc-oxide in their super whitener. This is just a pigment that will stick to your teeth and make them look whiter, but the effects will definitely wear off and you’ll have to keep buying it to maintain the same look to your teeth.
Zoom Whitening uses a peroxide that seeps deep into your teeth and is activated by the Zoom light. The peroxide oxidizes your teeth from the inside out, permanently getting rid of your stains. Although Dr. Cha previously used Zoom to whiten teeth, in 2020, he switched to KöR™. Unlike Zoom, KöR doesn’t activate the gel with a light, which dries out teeth and causes sensitivity. KöR hydrates and conditions teeth to make treatment comfortable.
