Professional Teeth Whitening course will come with the following:
Hydrogen Peroxide was always used as an antiseptic to help treat the gums. A dentist in 1960 happened to notice that when he had his patients do an overnight treatment with the carbamide peroxide the patient’s teeth were significantly whiter. Hydrogen Peroxide and Carbamide Peroxide levels of strength 10% to 44 % Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.
Teeth whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. Teeth with yellow tones will whiten more easily than brown teeth. Teeth with gray tones may not bleach at all. Teeth Whitening will not work on caps, veneers, crowns or fillings. It also won’t be effective if your tooth discoloration is caused by medications or a tooth injury.
According to the FDA, the term "bleaching" is permitted to be used only when the teeth can be whitened beyond their natural color. This applies strictly to products that contain bleach – typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.
The term "whitening," on the other hand, refers to restoring a tooth's surface color by removing dirt and debris. So, any product that cleans (like toothpaste) is technically considered a whitener. Of course, the term whitening sounds better than bleaching, so it is more frequently used – even when describing products that contain bleach.
Starting color: We are all equipped with an inborn tooth color that ranges from yellow-brownish to greenish-grey and intensifies over time. Yellow brown is generally more responsive to whitening than green-grey.
Translucency and thinness: These are also genetic traits that become more pronounced with age. While all teeth show some translucency, those that are opaque and thick have an advantage: they appear lighter in color, show more sparkle and are generally more responsive to whitening. Teeth that are thinner and more transparent – most notably the front teeth – have less of the pigment that is necessary for whitening. According to cosmetic dentists, transparency is the only condition that cannot be corrected by any form of teeth whitening.
Eating habits: The habitual consumption of red wine, coffee, tea, cola, carrots, oranges and other deeply colored beverages and foods causes considerable staining over the years. In addition, acidic foods such as citrus fruits and vinegar contribute to enamel erosion. As a result, the surface becomes more transparent and more of the yellow-colored dentin shows through.
Smoking habits: Nicotine leaves brownish deposits which slowly soak into the tooth structure and cause intrinsic discoloration.
While whitening can occasionally lighten tooth color by nine or more shades, most of those who whiten their teeth are likely to see a change of two to seven shades.
Teeth whitening treatments are safe when procedures are followed as directed. However, there are certain risks associated with whitening that you should be aware of:
Sensitivity: Although rare with our gentle gel, teeth whitening can cause a temporary increase in sensitivity to temperature, pressure and touch.
Whitening sensitivity usually lasts no longer than a day or two, but in some cases may persist a little longer. We recommend toothpaste for sensitive teeth to reduce sensitivity.
The use of the vitamin e swab is very successful in eliminating gum sensitivity.
Restorations such as bonding, dental crowns or porcelain veneers are not affected by bleach and therefore maintain their default color while the surrounding teeth are whitened.
We recommend that the client’s teeth be color checked after the first 20-minute session in these cases, as it may be all that is required to match the restorations.
Pregnant or lactating women are advised to avoid teeth whitening. The potential impact of swallowed bleach on the fetus or baby is not yet known.
We also recommend the treatment for persons over the age of 16.
Individuals with highly sensitive teeth, or those who are in need of dental work should consult their dentist before having a whitening procedure.
The teeth whitening procedure is completely hygienic and you never touch your client or their mouth. The procedure is effectively a DIY tooth whitening kit with an LED light accelerator to give the client maximum results in less than one hour.
With the kit alone and no accelerator these results would take weeks of continuous treatment.
This accelerated treatment is gentler on teeth and gums as there is less time with tissue exposed to the chemicals.
