What is BriteSmile!?
Whiter teeth, in about one hour . It’s that simple! Years of yellowing as well as harsh staining from coffee, cigarettes, and red wine are almost magically erased in the time it takes to get a haircut, a manicure or lunch. In fact, there are clinical studies which prove that the BriteSmile! tooth whitening treatment resulted in an average improvement of 8+ shades whiter! Looking Great Has Never Been This Easy!
First you’ll have a complimentary 10 minute consultation to answer all your questions and if you are interested in moving forward with the treatment, a dentist will then examine your teeth and gums to ensure that they’re healthy for whitening at that time. Then, while you relax, watch TV, or even nap, our proprietary gel and blue light treatment work to whiten teeth to their optimal brightness.
1. Your gums and mouth are protected with isolation materials and a “Before” picture is taken.
2. The BriteSmile tooth whitening gel is professionally applied and activated by the light source.
3. After three 20-minute applications over a one-hour period, your tooth whitening is completed and your “After” picture is taken.
4. You rinse. You smile. Wow!
How white is white?
In clinical studies, BriteSmile has been able to achieve 9+ shades whiter on average. Your results of course will vary as your starting point maybe different and everyone’s teeth respond a little differently, but in virtually all cases, the results are dramatic. Ultimately, the goal will be to achieve your optimum, natural whiteness. During your first consultation for tooth whitening, your dentist will go over what you personally can expect for your individual situation.
Severe discoloration can be treated and yield good results in many instances. However, the more difficult cases can sometimes require a more lengthy treatment than the standard one-hour treatment. Some enhanced results may also be achieved when tooth whitening materials are additionally used at home over a week or so. An important note “The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient, depending on the structure of the teeth, the brand of material that is used, the duration of time that the system is used and on the way that the material or system is administered by your dentist.”
How long do the results last?
Long-term results depend primarily on the individual. Certain habits, such as the use of tobacco products, drinking a lot of coffee, tea, dark soft drinks, and infrequent visits to the dentist for regular cleanings, etc., can work against the results. Regular professional care will help maintain the BriteSmile! up to 2 years. Some people may prefer to do the BriteSmile! whitening treatment more frequently.
We are proud to offer top quality products and services that offers our patients safe and effective way to dramatically whiter teeth from our professional one hour tooth whitening treatment to several other premium teeth whitening and whitening maintenance products. We trust that, with BriteSmile!, you will enjoy a whiter, healthier looking smile for years and maintain your overall dental health.Take-home Tooth Whitening Kits:Your teeth will be lighter than they were and you may need to re-whiten your teeth for one or two nights every four to six months. This will vary from individual to individual.
How is it done?
BriteSmile!: Your dentist will first examine your teeth and gums for good oral health. Next as you relax in the chair, a proprietary tooth whitening gel is applied to your teeth and the revolutionary, proprietary BriteSmile! light will be positioned over your teeth to activate the gel. As you watch TV, listen to music or nap, your teeth will lighten to their optimum, natural whiteness in about an hour.
At home tooth whitening: An impression is taken of your upper and lower dental arches and custom fitted clear trays are fabricated. These trays will closely conform to your teeth and allow a minimum amount of material to come in contact with your teeth.
Your dentist or dental hygienist will provide an overview of the quick and easy procedure and you are on your way to brightening your Smile! In office procedures will generally yield results within 30 minutes with most patients. Using a take home kit will generally improve the results and again these results will vary from patient to patient. Follow-up visits beginning the day after first usage and continuing onto the first and second week and third weeks may be suggested and comparisons and evaluations of your tooth shade will be done at that time.
Will it be uncomfortable?
The majority of our patients experience no pain or sensitivity after the BriteSmile Professional Tooth Whitening treatment.
A very small percentage of patients may experience a minor dull “ache” following the procedure. Taking an over-the-counter analgesic like Tylenolâ or aspirin almost always resolves the feeling.
In moderate cases, a clear dentist dispensed fluoride rinse my help as well. It is best to avoid very hot or very cold drinks for the first 24 hours if there is any tooth sensitivity.
Is it Safe?
BriteSmile!: Yes. The BriteSmile! procedure will not soften enamel or existing fillings. The primary ingredient in the BriteSmile!’s gel is hydrogen peroxide, which has been safely used in tooth whitening for over 100 years and is recognized as an effective whitening ingredient by the dental community. The percentage of hydrogen peroxide used in BriteSmile!’s proprietary gel is only 15%, much lower than other tooth whitening gels that often contain 35%-50% hydrogen peroxide.
Unlike the “do-it-yourself” at-home tooth whitening options, the dental team will perform every aspect of the BriteSmile! process. Before moving forward with the procedure, your dentist examines your mouth and gums to ensure they are healthy. If any potential problems are detected, a recommendation is made to correct the problems before proceeding with BriteSmile!
Additionally, BriteSmile! tooth whitening gel has a very small amount of hydrogen peroxide gel which further ensures the safety of your teeth and gums. At-home or In-office tray systems: At home or in-office tray systems for whitening teeth with carbamide peroxide under the supervision of a dentist has been shown to safe for teeth and gums. Some patients have experienced increased tooth sensitivity and some temporary discomfort of their gums. These symptoms tend to disappear within 1-3 days after stopping the process.
Usually after the sensitivity disappears the tooth whitening process can be started again and usually the sensitivity does not return. In any case, any reaction should be reported immediately to your dentist or hygienist for their special instructions. Over-the-counter quick bleaching kits may cause problems that you may be unaware of such as irritation of the gums and surrounding soft tissue. Over zealous use of over-the-counter home bleaching can wear away tooth enamel, especially due to the fact that these solutions have a very high acid content. We can’t over emphasize that these types of procedures are best controlled at your dentist’s office. Your progress will be monitored carefully which will certainly reduce most secondary effects. Only a dentist can make your teeth their whitest.
