On this page you can read all the answers to your questions regarding this very popular treatment.

HOW DOES THE BRITE SMILE TOOTH WHITENING  WORK?

Whiten your teeth with Bright Smile.  Bright Smile is the latest technology in smile whitening. The laser like light is simply a source of concentrated, light energy. A special whitening gel is placed on the teeth and then activated by the laser like light, works quickly and gently to whiten the areas of stained enamel. Teeth naturally darken as we age. Over time, staining may be caused by exposure to coffee, tea, soft drinks, tobacco, and certain foods. Discolouration can also occur because of certain childhood illnesses, medications, physical trauma, etc. Bright Smile is similar to the at home whitening programs. The major difference is that Bright Smile produces immediate results.

The procedure is usually performed in a 2 hour appointment at the Dental Practice.

CAN BRITE SMILE REMOVE STAINS?

Bright Smile will remove discolouration’s with a sustained release action that will oxidize (bleach) stains within your tooth. Your tooth structure remains unchanged. History and research show that all patients treated experienced some level of tooth whitening. Porcelain restorations (crowns, bridges and veneers and white fillings do not whiten with bleaching agents, although stained white fillings appear cleaner.

HOW LONG WILL YOUR TEETH STAY WHITE?

Research and experience has shown that the whitening effect from Brite Smile usually lasts for years. Teeth may darken again if exposed to staining products such as tobacco, tea, coffee, juices etc. However a monthly home boost treatment can be provided on request.

IS THE TREATMENT SAFE AND SIMPLE?

Yes with little or no discomfort at all. The products have been used in dentistry for over 100 years.

HOW SOON WILL YOU SEE RESULTS?

Immediately, although your teeth will continue to whiten for a day or two following the procedure. Please note that depending on the stains results may vary from person to person. It is important to avoid drinking or eating foods that may stain the teeth for two days following the procedure.

ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?

There may be a little sensitivity for a day or two following the procedure.
