HOW DOES THE SPA DENT TEETH WHITENING SYSTEM WORK?
HOW WHITE WILL MY TEETH GET?
A number of factors determine results including genetics and your starting shade. Almost all individuals depending on starting shade will see at least 2 to 8 shades.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
For initial home whitening most people will achieve their maximum result in less than 7 days. A 40 minute in office session will achieve the maximum whitening result for over 95% of people.
IS IT SAFE FOR ENAMEL?
Problems with enamel are associated with acidic and abrasive products. Spa Dent is PH neutral, has no silica and has Xylitol which neutralizes the bacteria that causes plaque.
WILL MY TEETH BE SENSITIVE?
There is virtually no sensitivity with Spa Dent. A small percentage of people will have minor gum discomfort and this typically dissipates in less than 10 minutes.
WHAT ABOUT CAPS, CROWNS AND VENEERS?
All of these stain over time through normal eating and drinking. The Spa Dent gel will not harm any of these and will remove the stains that have accumulated over time.
SHOULD I HAVE MY TEETH CLEANED PRIOR TO WHITENING?
We recommend that you have your teeth cleaned prior to whitening. For maximum results, it is recommended you whiten at your cleaning session. Many offices also use the Spa Dent prophy paste which will help in the whitening process. If you cannot go to the Dentist prior to whitening it will take several more days to achieve the same result.
HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN EAT OR DRINK AFTER MY TREATMENT?
For the first hour drink only water. After in office whitening avoid staining foods for 24 hours.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Typical results vary based on a number of factors including genetic traits and lifestyle. Everyone requires an aftercare program to maintain their smile. All whitening systems require aftercare to prevent re-staining. Using Spa Dent trays and our whitening pump as a toothpaste boot will maintain your smile.
HOW OFTEN CAN I WHITEN?
Initial whitening and maintenance all detailed in all of our products. Nightly maintenance with our pump can be done daily.
SHOULD I HAVE A FLUORIDE TREATMENT AFTER WHITENING?
Whitening opens up the tubuals in your teeth providing the greatest surface area possible for Fluoride to be effective. As an added benefit a neutral Fluoride will seal the tubuals helping to prevent re-staining and eliminate any sensitivity.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Some people may feel a slight tingling sensation, white gum line, or slight tooth sensitivity. These side effects are normally transient. Typically, they will last less than 10 minutes.
WHAT IF MY TEETH ARE STAINED FROM MEDICATIONS SUCH AS TETRACYCLINE?
Unfortunately, this is not a stain it is actually part of the tooth and cannot be removed. Your dental professional can review your specific case and provide you with other options.
WHAT ARE THE AGE RESTRICTIONS FOR TEETH WHITENING?
Age restriction in the United States is unregulated, however the ADA suggests 15 years old. In Canada it is regulated to 12 years of age and older. Crest White Strips also recommends 12 years and older.
