Known for its gentleness and ease of access, the BriteSmile® teeth whitening system can significantly improve the appearance of dulled or otherwise discolored teeth in a single office visit.
The BriteSmile whitening procedure uses a combination of a 15 percent or 25 percent hydrogen peroxide gel and a specially designed lamp that accelerates the process. The gels are pH balanced, compatible with tooth enamel and specifically formulated to respond to the blue wavelength of the activation lamp. They also contain glycerin and water to help prevent tooth dehydration. The light, which is safe for tooth enamel, skin, gums and other soft tissue, is shaped to illuminate and whiten all upper and lower teeth in the smile line at the same time.
The BriteSmile® Whitening Process
- Before undergoing the BriteSmile® whitening procedure, your dentist will perform a routine dental cleaning before applying the appropriate concentration of whitening gel to your teeth.
- The BriteSmile® blue light will then be positioned over the teeth and illuminated to activate the gel throughout the oxidation process. During this time, you can watch TV, listen to music or nap. Generally, the gels are applied to the teeth for three 20-minute intervals.
