How Does it Work?

Our whitening system uses a high intensity bleaching gel process accelerated by a LED light which activates the gel components. We can remove most stains with a gentle LED bleaching action that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredients in the gel, are broken down, heat, oxygen and light acts upon the stained organic deposits, which oxidizes them into a whiter color. This process makes the overall tooth color closer to its natural unstained color while your tooth structure remains unchanged. Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of this system. 

How long does treatment take?

Each session cycle takes 15-20 minutes and you may wish to do 2 or more cycles for full effect. It is that simple!

How many shades whiter can I expect my teeth to get?

The amount of whitening varies from client to client and cannot be predicted or guaranteed; but in general use, teeth may lighten anywhere from 4 to 10 shades on the whitening shade guide.  The results depend greatly on how discolored the teeth were originally.  Yellow or brown teeth, surface stains, and uniformly darkened teeth are easiest to whiten.  Additional whitening treatments may be needed in order to achieve the desired shade, especially with heavily stained teeth.

How long will it last?

This will vary from client to client and greatly depends on the types of foods and drinks you include in your everyday diet. This also greatly depends on your general dental hygiene habits.  The affects from this bleaching process should last from 6 months to a year.  Again, depending on your habits, periodic touch up treatments maybe recommended for those who drink coffee, smoke, drink red wine, iced tea, colas, and other staining foods. Typically, most people like to whiten again every 3 to 6 months. Depending on how often you whiten most people will only need one session to return to their whitest shade.

Does the FDA regulate whitening gel?

Teeth whiteners are not classified as drugs, therefore the FDA does not regulate them directly. In the USA, however, they do regulate the gel manufacturer. Therefore, it’s of high importance to use USA-made gels. All of our whitening gels are manufactured in the USA.

Does your mouth or teeth get hot from the bleaching light process?

No. The LED light source is calibrated to produce a constant, comfortable temperature even to the touch.

Who Administers the Product?

Because this process borders dental, it is mandatory that the clients handle and apply the products themselves. It is a self-managed procedure, but one of our Aestheticians will guide and assist indirectly in the application.

What causes the gum discoloration after whitening?

Part of the gum line may turn white if extra bleaching gel comes in contact with these softer tissue areas.  The peroxide component will bubble and turn white.  This is a common occurrence in the dental industry known as “blanching.”  The affected areas should return to normal in 15 – 30 minutes.  Rubbing vitamin E on these areas will help relieve any sensitive issues and return the natural color of the gums.

I have splotchy teeth with mottled tan, brown, and white spots on them, especially the front ones. Will this processes repair this?

No, this type of staining is known as fluorosis. It was caused by the uptake into the enamel of excessive amounts of fluoride while the customer’s permanent teeth were forming between 5-12 years of age. Cosmetic Teeth Whitening will not help excessively fluorosed teeth.

Will it hurt?

Most of our clients experience no pain or sensitivity to teeth or gums after the treatment. A very small percentage of people may feel minor sensitivity in the first ten to twelve hours following the procedure. Avoid cold or hot drinks for the first 24 hours if there is any tooth sensitivity. The use of a Sensodyne™-type toothpaste can often immediately eliminate any minor sensitivity issues.

Does the process cause damage to teeth enamel or nerves in teeth?

No.  Research has shown that bleaching with peroxide-based gels does not harm the enamel on peoples’ teeth. This type of bleaching has been done for over twenty years. The scientific literature also shows that neither the gel nor the light that we use will cause any nerve damage.

What are the benefits of Potassium Nitrate?

Potassium Nitrate is used in toothpastes for treating sensitive teeth. It’s use has increased dramatically and is approved by the FDA. As a significant benefit it also helps whitening as it is also an oxidizing agent.
