Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Teeth Whitening Process?
Teeth Whitening is actually a bleaching process that lightens discolorations of tooth enamel. Our system uses an effective whitening solution retained in 2 thermoforming trays (1 upper arch, 1 lower arch) that are worn over your teeth for only 15 to 20 minutes per day until you have reached your desired level of whitening. Our product is a 36% carbamide peroxide solution which allows the shorter period of time for results. In comparison, a 16% solution needs to be in your mouth 45 minutes to an hour for the SAME RESULTS. Now you can get professional quality dental whitening treatment without an expensive trip to the dentist!
Is this the same product offered in dental offices for $500 or more?
Yes, Our system uses the same active ingredients, percent concentration and methodology as those used in professional dental offices. We provide you with thermoforming trays and supply you with a high quality, effective whitening gel exactly like the formula used in dental offices.
What is the treatment process?
An impression of your teeth will be made by you at home with our easy-to-use instant thermoforming moldable mouth trays. You will then apply our whitening gel inside the thermoforming trays and place the tray over your teeth. Again, since our system is 36%, you can treat your teeth only 15-20 minutes per day. In most cases, you will see results within only one week.
How Does it Remove Stains?
Our system will remove most stains with a gentle action that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel (carbamide peroxide 36%), is broken down, oxygen acts upon the stained organic deposits, which oxidizes them into a white color. This process makes the overall tooth color closer to its natural unstained color. Your tooth structure remains unchanged. Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of this system. Over 95% of people treated achieve some level of tooth whitening. Crowns, bridges, bondings, and fillings do not lighten.
How long does the process take and will it need to be repeated?
Results are dependent upon each individual characteristics of each person and the daily wear-time of the thermoforming trays, but most people usually see results within the first week. Maximum results occur over the next 14-21 days. * If you habitually use products which stain teeth such as coffee, soft drinks, red wine, or tobacco products, it might be necessary to repeat the whitening process every few years. without exception teeth appear whiter after a proper treatment than they appeared before treatment. Also good oral hygiene, and regular visits to your dentist will help the results of teeth whitening treatment last longer.
How important is thermo-fitting the mouth trays properly?
Very Important! Having thermoforming trays is essential to assure proper bleaching results. Non-moldable mouthpieces may cause inconsistent bleaching or spotting on the teeth and they are uncomfortable to wear. This is also true with whitening strips on the market today.
Is the whitening gel harmful to my teeth?
No, carbamide peroxide gel will not cause any harm to your teeth enamel. We do recommend reducing any contact with the gums. Some people experience teeth sensitivity from carbamide peroxide gel but our gel is made using an optimized PH formula and Kosher grade gycerin to help reduce sensitivity. We did not use any animal by products in our formula to improve stabilization for increased whitening performance.
Is it safe to whiten my teeth at home?
Yes, our at-home bleaching system is specially designed to be an easy-to-use system with detailed usage instructions. Over a decade of research indicates that whitening teeth with carbamide peroxide is safe and effective. All of our products comply with FDA regulations.
