What to Expect When Getting Your Teeth Whitened

Thursday, June 9, 2016 | 7:13 pm

Teeth whitening is one of the simplest cosmetic procedures if done right. Doing it right means using a proper whitening agent (that is, a good hydrogen peroxide gel) and an appropriate whitening accelerator. The most practical accelerator is a LED lamp emitting cold blue light with a wavelength of around 465 nanometers. This wavelength of light is ideal for activating the hydrogen peroxide and accelerating the whitening process.

The procedure is painless. Hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth. A cold blue light is placed directly in front of the customer’s exposed teeth and run for 15-20 minutes per treatment. Typically, Carte Blanche teeth whitening performs 1 to 3 treatments on each customer during the same session, and the more treatments we perform the better results you obtain.

Although there are significant differences among the teeth whitening lights available in the market, the most important factor is the gel. Hydrogen peroxide works much better than carbamide peroxide. 16% hydrogen peroxide is the strongest teeth bleaching gel you can use without the use of a gingival barrier.

Carte Blanche offers an Advanced Whitening Kit and procedure, which is pain-free, very effective and affordable teeth whitening method. They used to only offer the tray system and still do to those who ask for it, but 95% of customers are happier with the advanced kit. The customer puts on the cheek retractor, and then, using a mirror, applies the gel directly to the teeth using a pen that looks just like a touch-up pen. In this way, there is nothing (such as a tray) interfering between the light and the gel on the teeth.
