What does the whole teeth whitening procedure look like?
1. Your gums and mouth are protected with isolation materials.
2. The PrevDent teeth-whitening gel is professionally applied and activated by a light source.
3. After six ten-minute applications over the period of one hour, your whitening is completed.
4. You rinse. You smile. Wow!
This is simply a great way to a whiter, healthier looking smile.
Sure, there are a few options like teeth-whitening toothpaste or tray system, but most of them are not as fast, easy, convenient and effective as PrevDent. The PrevDent method gives you a faster, more convenient experience and a better result than any other. PrevDent is clearly better! Top researchers and clinical professors from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New York University and the prestigious Forsyth Institute confirmed the safety and efficacy of the method.
How white will my teeth get?
In clinical studies, PrevDent has been able to whiten your teeth up to 8 shades. Your results, of course, will depend on the genetic colour of your teeth, but in all cases, the results are truly dramatic. Ultimately, the goal will be to achieve your optimum, natural whiteness. During the consultation, the dentist will explain what you can expect based on your individual situation. Severe discoloration can be treated and yield good results in many instances. However, the more difficult cases can sometimes require a more lengthy treatment than the standard one-hour procedure.
How long does it last?
The long-term results depend primarily on the individual. Certain habits, such as the use of tobacco products, drinking a lot of coffee, tea, dark soft drinks, and infrequent visits to the dentist for regular cleanings, etc., can work against the results. Regular professional care and use of the BriteSmile Professional Whitening After Care products can help maintain your natural whiteness for up to 2 years or more. Some people may prefer to do the BriteSmile whitening treatment more frequently.
How does it work?
The WIT dentist will first examine your teeth and gums for good oral health. Next, as you relax in the chair, our proprietary whitening gel is applied to your teeth and the revolutionary, patented BriteSmile light will be positioned over them to activate the gel. As you watch TV, listen to music or nap, your teeth will lighten, and your natural whiteness will be restored in about an hour through a completely safe process of oxidation. Because of our unique chemistry and revolutionary blue wavelength light, a process that used to take many hours can now be accomplished in just one hour.
Will it hurt?
The majority of our clients experience no pain or sensitivity after the PrevDent Professional Teeth Whitening treatment. A very small percentage of customers may experience a minor dull “ache” following the procedure. Taking some sort of analgesic almost always resolves the feeling. It is best to avoid very hot or very cold drinks for the first 24 hours if there is any tooth sensitivity.
Is this procedure for everyone?
Virtually everyone wanting to whiten their teeth can benefit from using PrevDent – including people with severe food, coffee, tobacco or tetracycline stains. The dental examination by the WIT dentist will determine whether you are a good candidate for whitening at the time of your appointment. If the dentist uncovers a condition that would delay whitening, you will be referred back to your primary dentist for possible treatment or you can make an other appointment with the dentist.
How old do you have to be?
Currently, the minimum age is 18 years old, with clinical proof of safety and effectiveness.
Will the procedure whiten my existing crowns/veneers/bonds, etc.?
The PrevDent Professional Teeth Whitening treatment has been successful at removing stains from caps, veneers or bonded teeth. However, a whitening treatment in general cannot change the original colour of the caps, veneers or bonds. We recommend that you discuss your situation with a WIT dentist to determine what you can expect.
Does this work on Tetracycline stains/is it safe to use on Tetracycline stained teeth?
The PrevDent treatment has achieved excellent results with Tetracycline stained teeth. However, results definitely vary depending on the severity of the stains. You will receive a brief consultation prior to your treatment, so the dentist should be able to give you a better indication as to what type of results you should expect to achieve after your treatment has been performed. In addition, the BriteSmile treatment is completely safe and will not harm or effect your gingival or tooth enamel.
Can I have this done if I am pregnant?
WIT recommends that you not do this process while nursing or pregnant. While we have no data that suggests PrevDent would be problematic for pregnant women, we simply choose not to do so. Rather, we recommend that patients wait until after childbirth and/or nursing, to have our whitening process performed.
Are other types of dental work – cleanings, fillings, crowns, cosmetic, etc. – performed at the BriteSmile Professional Teeth Whitening Centers?
Yes. WIT is also a regular dentist practice. If you have other dental needs, you can make a appointment.
How can I maintain my new white teeth?
We recommend the following to maintain your new BriteSmile:
•Brush your teeth at least twice daily or after each meal; floss daily
•Use the PrevDent Toothpaste and the Sonicare toothbrush
Visit your dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups (recommendation: every 6 months)
