Questions About Tooth Whitening

What is BriteSmile?
BriteSmile is a chair-side teeth whitening system that uses a combination of whitening gel and light. BriteSmile is ideal for removing tough stains caused by coffee, tobacco, tea, red wine, and other beverages and food.

How is it applied?
After checking your teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy enough to handle bleaching, Dr. Naini will spread a whitening gel containing a small percentage of hydrogen peroxide over your teeth. Then, she will aim the BriteSmile lamp on your teeth so that its gentle, blue light will activate the BriteSmile patented whitening gel. The gel is specially engineered to respond to the blue wavelengths of the light system. When the light illuminates the gel, it activates the whitening process, leaving you with significantly whiter and brighter teeth in just an hour.

Is tooth whitening harmful to my teeth?
No, tooth whitening is not harmful to the teeth. While certain patients may experience sensitivity after traditional bleaching, with the BriteSmile tooth whitening system, sensitivity will be minimal or non-existent.

How do I take care of my teeth after they are whitened?
Following a tooth whitening session at Aesthetic Dental Spa, you should continue to receive regular cleaning and dental exams to maintain your results.

How long do results last?
Indefinitely! With proper care, the effects of a BriteSmile tooth whitening session can last for years.
