It starts with our special whitening gel tray. Then the BB-Cool Advanced III is activated. Carbamide peroxide and oxygen will break into water molecules and free hydroxyl radicals. The oxygen radicals combined with carbon-based molecules on a discolored surface removes discoloration. This process will penetrate the tooth enamel but will not damage the enamel.
We would recommend it as a daily maintenance. It is best when used twice daily after brushing your teeth.
Typically, discoloration come from exposure to tea, coffee, smoking, juices, colas, wine, age, or just about anything that would stain a white t-shirt.
Research has shown that if the teeth and gums are normal and healthy there are no adverse effects to bleaching one’s teeth. People with tooth decay and with any type of gum disease should avoid this treatment. Never treat a pregnant woman; there are no known side effects, but it is simply a precaution.
Almost everyone can enjoy the benefit to the whitening process if his or her teeth and gums are healthy. Remember, teeth cannot be bleached whiter than genetically possible. BleachBright products are not recommended under the age of 18 without parental permission.
Yes- crowns, caps, veneers and implants can also be discolored by coffee, tea, colas, smoking, wines etc. so the SmileBright procedure can take your teeth back to the color you chose with your dentist, before application.
Generally No, while a small percentage of people may feel a little tingling sensation, white gum line, or sensitivity, all of which are normal and hold no real danger.
In the first 24 hours, we would recommend avoiding coffee, tea, dark-colored sodas, red wines, berries, candy, red sauces, beets, or any foods that can discolor. This is not necessary if a whitening is followed by a session with bluminerals™.
