How does it work?
Our specially formulated dental grade whitening gel, custom trays, and specialized LED light is used in the process. Our whitening light is engineered with the most powerful whitening LED technology. The reflector design around the LED’s provides maximum coverage simultaneously of both upper and lower teeth. The light will increase the oxidation process of hydrogen peroxide thus releasing more oxygen which accelerates the whitening process.
Does it hurt?
No, our process does not hurt. Most clients with healthy gums report that they feel no discomfort whatsoever. A small percentage of clients may experience some mild discomfort. However, it is generally no more severe than that of hard teeth brushing.
Is it like the dentist?
The most popular whitening treatments dental offices offer utilize ultra violet lights. This can cause a form of “sunburn” inside the mouth and cause severe discomfort. Whitening Lightning treatments utilize a blue light which provides heat. The heat from the lamp will activate the peroxide which will result in up to 8 shades of whiter teeth.
I have used trays and strips in the past but they made my teeth sensitive. What can I expect from your product?
Our Whitening Lightning treatment will not cause long term sensitivity like strips and trays do because the exposure is limited to 20 minutes. With strips and trays, you must do repeated treatments in order to achieve results.
How long does it take?
The process itself takes only 20 minutes. However, with prep time, your entire appointment should take only 30-35 minutes.
How long does it last?
We can remove the stains from your teeth. Some habits are more likely to cause new staining such as drinking red wine, coffee, tea, and smoking.Once you resume your normal routine and depending on your habits, your result will last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.
How can I prolong my results?
Obviously, avoiding substances that stain the teeth will help. We also have maintenance products we may recommend for you to help fight tough stains and prevent new stains from forming.
How white can my teeth be?
Generally, a single treatment can whiten your teeth up to 6 shades. This is a stark improvement. However, your teeth can never be whiter than they were when you first got your adult teeth.
I have caps, crowns, and veneers. Can you whiten them?
Our Whitening Lightning 20 minute Miracle can remove staining from your dental work and restore them to their original, beautiful color. We cannot change the color of the dental work itself, but can make them look beautiful again.
Is there anything I need to do before or after the treatment?
There are no special instructions before your treatment. After your treatment, you will want to steer clear of the following for at least 12 hours (24 hours is better): coffee, tea, red wine, fruit juices, berries, dark colored sauces and red sauces.
