An innovative product from Discus Dental Incorporated is the BriteSmile Whitening System. Teeth whitening has been performed from as way back as in the late nineteenth century, and even way back then, hydrogen peroxide was the agent used.
During a certain period in time heat would be applied directly to the hydrogen peroxide on the teeth to catalyze its action in the whitening process. This however, caused some adverse effects and was not very successful. As a result, the application of direct heat died out.
In modern times once again, the BriteSmile treatment builds on the original system of heat applied on hydrogen peroxide and implements the latest technology in a patented blue light procedure which produces wonder results for teeth whitening.
Here are some of the great benefits of using BriteSmile:
The BriteSmile hydrogen based proprietary gel produces a difference of up to eight shades lighter in teeth whiteness within the short span of sixty minutes. This level of efficiency leaves standing methods like the leading tray system which achieves around 6 shades after several weeks and whitening toothpastes which achieve approximately 1.5 times the shade after thirty days of usage.
Not only does BriteSmile whiten but its usage has been proved to be extremely conducive to good oral and dental health.
Another really excellent factor about BriteSmile is that the treatment does not require any structural changes to your teeth and is therefore a very safe method of whitening. It will be safely administered by a professional dentist in a controlled environment.
Your BriteSmile treatment will be complete in a single dental session. Since no anesthetic or sedation is required, you only have to sit back, watch some television and relax while receiving the treatment.
Your dentist will apply the BriteSmile gel on your teeth and then use a specially designed and lamp with a blue wavelength light that activates the hydrogen peroxide in a chemical reaction. This in turn produces fast-action whitening on your teeth.
You may experience a kind of ‘ache’ on a very low scale for a short while after, but this is also a rare occurrence. BriteSmile means you can spend one hour in your dentist chair and come away with a brilliantly white smile that will keep you sparkling for at least eighteen months before requiring attention again.
