WHAT IS TEETH WHITENING?
People often throw the terms “teeth whitening” and “bleaching” around interchangeably. However, according to the FDA, teeth are “whitened” when they are lightened to match their natural color, and they are “bleached” when they are whitened beyond their natural shade.
Our L.E.D.-accelerated carbamide peroxide trays whiten teeth safely and are just as effective as other, more expensive whitening methods you’ll see in many dentists’ offices.
HOW WHITE WILL MY TEETH GET?
Everyone is born with a particular tooth color, just like your skin, hair and eyes. Our gels work to return you back to your original genetic tooth color. This varies from person to person. After just one treatment, most people are satisfied. For some people, a second or third treatment may be needed to achieve the results they are looking for. Some stains are much more difficult to remove than others. Depending on age and the type of stains, they may require more attention than others.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Teeth whitening requires maintenance or touch-ups for a long lasting effect. The results can last for 12 months to 2 years and sometimes longer. The older you are, the more stains you have accumulated. Bleaching works to remove discolorations and restore your teeth to their natural white color. You may want to periodically whiten your teeth as exposure to certain foods and beverages will gradually darken teeth again over time. Most people touch up every 6 months to a year. You can whiten your teeth up to 3 times per year with our system.
