We do not claim to be dentists nor dental hygienists. This will NOT replace any dentist practice. This process is considered as a cosmetic treatment. It is gentle and considered a self-administrated treatment assisted by a trained technician. It is accelerated with a UV light for 20 minutes.
Recent scientific research by the University of Leuven, in Belgium, has shown that when the teeth are normal and healthy, there are no adverse effects on the tooth enamel. Furthermore, North American White Smile ensures the recommended strength.
The ingredient is 35% Carbamide Peroxide Whitening Gel, the same safe ingredients as dentist use.
People that are too young or have used medicines such as tetracycline are not eligible for the treatment. Also any discoloration or stains resulting from decalcification; such as excessive use of fluorides and porous teeth will have limited results from the treatment. People born with grey teeth will likewise gain little benefit from the treatment. However, it may be assumed that North American White Smile will have a positive effect for 90% of users, though it is advisable for the teeth to be in good condition and without cavities.
Results depend on the individual characteristics of each person. Like age and the grade of discoloration, but most people usually see results after the first treatment. Optimal results are achieved after 2 to 3 treatments (20 minutes each) depending on personal parameters as described above.
The treatment is not guaranteed to be permanent. Your teeth have become stained in the first place from consuming foods and beverages. Upon the completion of your bleaching process, your teeth are closely restored to their natural white color. Exposure to foods, drinks (especially coffee, colas and red wines), smoking and other consumables will gradually darken teeth again over time. You may want to periodically bleach your teeth. (Once a year) After an initial treatment, most people do touch-ups with our maintenance pen.
People with healthy teeth and gums, but who have stains or a yellowish tint seem to get the best results.
The clients will not experience any heat or discomfort. On some occasions, they may feel a little tingling or perhaps a slight sensitivity. Teeth and/or gums may be sensitive for a short time after treatment.
Clients may see temporary bleaching to the gums, however this is normal and will disappear, usually in less than a day. The teeth will never be whiter than your genetic traits.
All teeth bleach differently. Possible white spots or demineralization may appear on people who have had braces or who have porous enamel, but this will disappear in 24 hours.
The treatment will not whiten nor damage veneers, crowns or false teeth.
Aftercare & Maintenance:
For a minimum of 24 hours after the process, please avoid consuming coffee, tea, dark colored soda, red wine, curry, beetroot and other food or drink that would stain the teeth. A good rule of thumb is; if it would stain a white shirt it could stain your teeth. If your teeth are sensitive you can use Sensodyne™ toothpaste for immediate relief. Of course, we suggest that you brush and floss as directed by your dentist. There is no guarantee as to the longevity of the results, therefore we recommend daily maintenance with our Ultra Bright pen.
