What's one of the first thing a person notices about you? Your smile! A bright, white smile helps you look confident, approachable, healthy and vibrant. But did you know that over time, teeth naturally yellow and become discolored? It's true. If you smoke or drink coffee, tea, cola or red wine, the staining can be even more pronounced.
Stained teeth can cause you to feel embarrassed, inhibiting your freedom to laugh, smile or even speak. It can really affect your daily life. Such a discolored smile can also add years to your appearance, making you look older than you are. Who wants that?
There is a solution Thanks to the revolutionary smile whitening technology of the BriteSmile
system, you can have a brighter, whiter smile in only one hour!BriteSmile
offers state-of-the-art technology that is safe, effective and gentle. There's no laser, no heat and no scraping. This whitening system uses only two simple elements: gel and light.
Whitening Gel BriteSmile
uses its own patented whitening gel, which offers safety, comfort and maximum whitening results. While other whitening gels contain as much as 35%-50% hydrogen peroxide, BriteSmile
's proprietary gel contains only 15% peroxide. It is also buffered at a near-neutral pH value that is compatible with tooth enamel. The gel also contains other ingredients such as glycerin and highly purified water to prevent tooth dehydration and to further ensure safety. The gel is specifically engineered to respond to the blue wavelengths of the light system. When the light illuminates the gel, it activates and safely accelerates the whitening process, achieving amazing results in just one hour.
Light The patented BriteSmile
light is not a laser. It's a specially designed lamp that shines a gentle, blue light on your teeth. It works with the whitening gel to accelerate the whitening process. This light has been clinically proven safe for tooth enamel as well as skin, gums, and other soft tissues. It emits virtually no heat and no harmful UV (ultraviolet) light. The lamps are uniquely shaped to illuminate and whiten all "smile line" teeth (top and bottom) at the same time, ensuring natural, even results.
A Simple, Safe and Gentle Treatment BriteSmile
treatment is simple. First, the BriteSmile
whitening gel is carefully applied to your teeth. The gel is then activated by the blue light for 20 minutes while you relax and watch TV or listen to music. This process is then repeated two more times. The treatment is safe for your tooth enamel, fillings and dental work and your gums, and causes little, if any, sensitivity.
Brilliant Results Clinical studies prove that BriteSmile
whitens teeth by an average of 9.3 shades, more than any other dentist teeth whitening technique -- laser whitening, whitening strips, whitening toothpaste, whitening gel and trays, etc. - creating a brilliantly white smile that lasts for years.
Enhanced Health But there's more to BriteSmile
than looking great. BriteSmile
also improves your oral health. In just one hour, BriteSmile
's light technology not only removes years of stain build-up, but it also kills harmful bacteria found in gingivitis and periodontal disease, leaving you with your whitest and healthiest smile. BriteSmile
is the only professional teeth whitening treatment system that can make this claim.
