How Does the BriteSmile System Work?

Last updated 6 years ago

Tobacco use, tea or coffee, excessive fluoride, and natural aging can all stain your teeth. Having a bright, white smile will make you feel and look better, which is important for your job, your personal life, and even your self-esteem. With the BriteSmile system, a cosmetic dentist can make your teeth dazzling white again in about one hour.

Quick and Easy
The main reason why the BriteSmile system can work so quickly is because it's designed for use by professionals, utilizing potent and effective whitening methods. BriteSmile uses a tried-and-true whitening ingredient—hydrogen peroxide—in low quantities, along with advanced technology. After carefully applying the gel, the dental professional aims blue plasma light at your teeth for about 20 minutes. The light is a specially designed lamp, not a laser, which works with the active ingredients in BriteSmile's gel to whiten your teeth. You can rest and relax while the light and gel do all of the work. The process is repeated twice before you rinse your mouth and head home or back to work with a bright, white smile.

Safe and Lasting
BriteSmile's safety and effectiveness have been demonstrated in published studies. Because BriteSmile uses the blue light to activate the whitening gel, the gel can include less hydrogen peroxide. This makes your teeth and gums less sensitive to the whitening process. The light uses no laser or heat, so the process is gentle and comfortable. Studies have shown that the BriteSmile system doesn't change the structure of the teeth's enamel. This method can whiten teeth up to 14 shades lighter, and the results last for years. The procedure is also safe and effective because it's performed in a dental office by professionals, not at home. The active ingredients used to whiten teeth are best left in the hands of professionals.
