Whitening products contain either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide as active ingredients. Carbamide peroxide breaks down and becomes hydrogen peroxide, which is the whitening agent. Whitening products remove the surface stains and deep stains in the tooth enamel. They can also make the teeth lighter than their natural color.
Most whitening agents that are used by dentists contain 35-45% peroxide. Those that you get from the drugstore contain closer to 7% peroxide. So, to get whiter teeth, a trip to the dentist is the best choice.
The Glo Whitening System uses a special tray designed to be speedy and safe, using a professional strength whitening gel. The Glo system combines light and heat in the special tray to activate the whitening gel. The heat and light make the hydrogen peroxide more effective and don’t cause sensitivity.
The Glo Science whitening system has been designed to be fast, efficient, and safe. This advance in technology allows the dentist to get rid of messy trays and light guns. The patented light system, the Guided Light Optics (GLO) unit combines light plus warming heat in an enclosed system that activates the professional strength GLO Whitening Gel.
The technology combines heat and light to optimize the specially designed hydrogen peroxide paste. The system is so safe that it can be used on caps, crowns, bonding, and veneers.
The procedure works with several 8-minute applications to whiten the top and bottom teeth at the same time. The Glo system gives you a whiter smile in less than an hour.
To be very successful at teeth whitening you need to do more than just apply whitener and then wait for it to work. To get the best results, there are things that you should do and things that you shouldn’t.
We will start with the things you should do.
It is important to have good oral hygiene before and after whitening. If your teeth have buildup from infrequent brushing, the whitening treatment may not work as well. The layer of buildup on the teeth can absorb some of the whiteners and not allow it to whiten the teeth.
Whiten your teeth professionally to ensure safe treatment. Professional treatments are far more effective than those you do at home. The professional whitening will ensure that all teeth are whitened in a way that matches your skin tone and it will have a lasting impact.
Avoid dark foods and drinks before and after your whitening procedure. This is very important right after your procedure. Avoid foods that are acidic because they can strip your teeth of the whitening treatment.
Talk with your dentist about what you need to be doing before your whitening procedure. They will inform you best about your specific needs.
Don’t do it yourself. It may seem less expensive, but it doesn’t work as well and can cause problems if it isn’t done correctly.
Don’t whiten your teeth too often. Whitening too frequently can cause sensitivity problems that outweigh the white smile you want.
Don’t mess with the ingredients. Your dentist knows best and will give you what you need for that beautiful smile.
The GLO Whitening system will leave your teeth many shades whiter. The specially designed gel combined with the warming and light will make the enamel glow.
The company claims that the GLO system has been shown to whiten teeth up to five shades lighter. Outcomes will vary, depending on how white your teeth are when you start. If you drink dark liquids or smoke, it will take longer to get the results you are looking to achieve.
