The Brite Smile Teeth Whitening System is a privately developed treatment that is intended to whiten teeth for an extended period of time. The procedure is performed in an office by trained professionals. Special equipment and a special gel are used.
Once in the office, the procedure begins with the application of a special hydrogen peroxide gel. This gel is spread onto the teeth. It is unique because of the lower than average concentration of hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide gel is then exposed to a blue light that was designed specifically to work with the gel. As the gel reacts to the blue light, it begins to shed oxygen. The particles combine with the staining agents that are on the enamel. This new particle is now easier to remove than before.
It takes a total of three applications in order for the Brite Smile treatment to be effective. These three applications are all performed within the same one hour visit. The patient can expect to see eight shades of whitening on their teeth. However, this may vary depending on the condition of the teeth.
Brite Smile has performed studies that show it is safe and will not degrade tooth enamel. Patients who choose Brite Smile will have no recovery time and are able to leave the office and return to their normal schedule immediately.
