About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures due to its universal appeal and incredible social and even (indirectly) financial benefits.

Males and females of all ages desire whiter teeth. According to a multitude of consumer studies, teeth whitening provides amazing benefits: you will be perceived as more attractive, successful, popular, wealthy, and intelligent!

Teeth whitening can even give you a competitive edge in the job market since potential employers are subject to first impressions, too.

Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Many people wonder, "Does teeth whitening work?" The answer is a resounding, "Yes!" Teeth whitening definitely does work. Thousands of people have had their teeth successfully whitened. But how does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening, or bleaching, works by penetrating the tooth enamel with a special peroxide-based bleaching gel containing either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

The special gel actually removes stains and debris that accumulate over the years within the layers of the teeth.

Teeth do tend to darken over the years as well as become more difficult to whiten. This is due to various factors such as dietary habits, whether or not you smoke, your dental hygiene, and genetic factors.

The sooner you begin regular whitening, the easier it will be to get a really white smile.

Home Teeth Whitening

Our home whitening products work great as stand alone whitening treatments as well as follow-up treatments. Nevertheless, for the best, longest lasting results, we recommend that you use our home teeth whitening products as follow up treatments after having one of our professional whitening treatments.

Even though our home bleaching products use the strongest gel available for home use, for best results, you will need to apply the bleaching gel every day, without skipping, until desired results are achieved.

The reason consecutive applications are important is because of the way the enamel interacts with the gel. It's rather dry reading so we won't go into detail here, but trust us, consecutive applications, no more than 24 hours apart, is the most effective way to use home bleaching products.
