FAQS


What type of whitening gel is this?

Teeth Bleaching Kits use Carbamide Peroxide as the whitening agent. When wearing the filled trays, Carbamide Peroxide is slowly broken down into Hydrogen Peroxide which whitens the teeth. The 36% gel whitens quicker but can cause temporary sensitivity to temperatures.    
                                           

How long does it take and how white will they get?

Gel systems need to be used 10-14 days to achieve maximum whiteness. Virtually everybody who whitens their teeth will see improvement. The length of time determines the ultimate whiteness of the teeth exposed to the whitening gel and the mineral composition of the teeth. Teeth whitening is kind of like a reverse suntan. Some people get excellent results in only one or two days while others need more treatment time. 


How can the gel be the same as the dentist use?

In 1998, the FDA ruled that this product is a cosmetic and therefore needs no prescription and can be sold by anyone.                                    

 How does this system work?

Each kit contains two boil and bite trays (1 upper & 1 lower). Just dip them in hot water for 3-5 seconds and bite down on them. Using your tongue and fingers gently mold them to the contours of your teeth. It takes about 2 minutes, and they are ready to use. These trays will make impressions of your teeth which will Maximize the effectiveness of the gel. Once the trays are fitted a whitening gel is placed on each tray or on the visible tooth surfaces and the trays are fitted over the teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel, carbamide peroxide, is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and bleaches the colored substances. The structure of the tooth is unchanged; only the tooth is made lighter and whiter.                         

How long does the whitening last?                               

Duration of whitening varies from person to person depending on lifestyle. The most common causes of staining include genetics, aging, consumption of staining substances (smoking, coffee, tea, colas), 
tetracycline (antibiotic) staining, excessive fluoride, and old fillings. Whitening toothpaste can remove a stain that is on the outside of the teeth. Dentists call this extrinsic staining. However, whitening toothpaste and professional dental cleanings will not change the color or intrinsic staining of the teeth. That is why tooth whitening (sometimes called tooth bleaching) is so popular. Your teeth will remain white as long as you continue using the touch-up process every few weeks. No whitening procedure will ever permanently whiten your teeth; a touch up is needed.

Who may benefit from teeth whitening?         

Almost everyone. However, there are some cases where treatment may not be adequate. Teeth lightening is ideal for patients who have healthy, unrestored teeth and would like a whiter, brighter smile. Tetracycline discolorations and artificial dental work are usually not significantly responsive to dental bleaching.  
                                            
Is the teeth whitening process permanent?

With proper oral care, the treatment will last for many years. Your teeth have become stained in the first place from consuming the foods and beverages. Upon the completion of your initial bleaching process, your teeth restored close to their natural white color. Exposure to meals, drinks (especially coffee, colas and red wines), smoking and other consumables will gradually darken teeth again over time. You may want to bleach your teeth periodically. After initial treatment, most people do touchups about once every 6-12 months. 
 
How does it remove stains?

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.
