How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening is a simple process. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated and your teeth brighter. Carbamide peroxide breaks down into hydrogen peroxide and urea. Once this breakdown occurs, it is in fact the hydrogen peroxide that bleaches your teeth. If the whitening product contains 10 percent carbamide peroxide, it will break down to 3.5 percent hydrogen peroxide. Our in-office system uses either 24% or 30% HYDROGEN Peroxide to whiten your teeth. This results in a faster, more effective whitening result.

Will my teeth be sensitive after using GLO??

The primary fear most patients have while whitening is sensitivity after the procedure. We’ve tried many whitening systems in our office and GLO is the first to show minimal if any post treatment sensitivity. The reason being that most in office whitening systems use a very HOT lamp to activate the peroxide compound. Some reaching over 200°C causing pulpal inflammation and the associated sensitivity. Our in-office GLO Science only reaches 53°C, causing dramatically less if any post-operative discomfort!!!!

How long Does the Procedure Take?

While other in office systems such as ZOOM! can take up to 2 hours of chair time. GLO only takes about 1 hour. This includes roughly 30 minutes of pre-op and post-op cleaning and a total of 32 minutes of whitening!! This product saves you time and gives you the same results!
