Teeth Whitening has become one of the most requested cosmetic treatments, and for good reason. Studies have shown that a beaming white smile not only makes you more attractive, it also helps you appear younger, more intelligent, successful, and friendly! Everyone feels better when they have great looking white teeth.

YES, years of teeth whitening treatments in dental offices have proven that it is safe. If directions for use are followed, home application is also safe. Occasionally, problems such as teeth sensitivity (mild or moderate) or gum irritations may be experienced. If this happens, the frequency of use should be reduced. People who do experience teeth sensitivity will notice that it normally subsides quickly following completion of treatment.
Yes, teeth whitening does work on natural teeth that have experienced some surface and/or subsurface stains from eating, drinking or smoking things that leave stains on or in the tooth enamel. Most of our customers have been very pleased with their results from our home whitening products as well as our products for professional use.
During the teeth whitening process, the active ingredient in the gel (hydrogen peroxide) is broken down to water and oxygen, oxygen enters the tooth enamel. This bleaches embedded discoloured substances (stains). The structure of the tooth is not changed; only the tooth enamel stain is changed and becomes a lighter and whiter shade. Fillings, crowns, bridges and bonding are slightly affected.
Whitening results often become apparent during the first treatment. Typically, the whitening effect becomes even more evident after a second treatment. Teeth will continue to whiten with each successive treatment until desired results are achieved.
Although results vary, in our experience backed by studies, they show that 90% to 95% of people experience some level of whitening. We have experienced up to 7 shades in one 15 minute Salon/Spa Cosmetic Whitening procedure.
For most people, the results are long-lasting. Exposure to coffees, teas, tobacco, red wines and certain other stain producing substances will eventually darken teeth again over time. Maintenance kits for home are recommended and provided to stop the teeth from staining
YES, our exclusive photo-ion initiators greatly accelerate the whitening process. Extending actual treatment times for faster overall whitening results may also work if the teeth are not overly sensitive. As the gel is activated, a slight tingling or bubbling sensation may be felt. This is the oxidation process taking place.
Treatment should be done on upper and lower teeth each day at home until your desired whitening is achieved. Twice a day treatments may also achieve faster whitening results.
After initial treatment, some people do touch-ups every 3-6 months based on the amount of stain-producing substances to which they are exposed. The iBriteTM tooth whitening system is a professional whitening system using LIGHT and not a “supermarket” tooth whitening kit. It is considerably stronger and more effective.
The active ingredient in the whitening gel, hydrogen peroxide, is milder than the Professional Dental Office strength with Photo-Ion initiators for faster whitening with less sensitivity in less time.
YES, the light we use is called an iBriteTM photo light and it is safe. There are no harmful Ultraviolet (UV) or Infrared (IR) rays in this Diode light source at 400 to 500 nanometers. This light is the same type of light as the ones that are used in many dental offices.
