Whether your teeth are stained from coffee, tea, smoking, wine, age, or a combination of factors, teeth whitening can help you achieve the youthful, bright smile you’re yearning for.
BriteSmile is a patented tooth whitening system that uses a 15% hydrogen peroxide gel and a blue-green light to accelerate the whitening compounds. Most tooth whitening procedures require multiple treatment sessions over longer periods of time to achieve results. On the other hand, after just one hour of treatment with BriteSmile, patients’ teeth will be at least nine shades brighter.
The patented light of the BriteSmile is safe for teeth, gums, and soft tissue. No harmful ultra-violet rays are released during use. In addition, during the treatment, you’ll experience no pain or heat, and the light uses no lasers. The gel used in whitening has been shown in multiple studies to be safe for gums and is non-corrosive and non-caustic to your tooth enamel. Furthermore, BriteSmile is safe for your fillings and other dental work. The gel contains glycerin and purified water to prevent dehydration of the tooth during treatment and ensure safety.
The BriteSmile whitening is buffered to a neutral pH that is compatible with your tooth enamel. The gel also has a patented photo-inhibitor that aids in chromophore destruction on the surface of the teeth; in other words, it eliminates parts of certain molecules that are responsible for coloration. To accelerate the whitening process, the BriteSmile treatment uses a liquid whitening agent before the second and third gel applications.
