Here is the science behind how it works—- Research has shown that there are five elements to successful teeth whitening; peroxide, light, pressure, heat and exposure.
-Peroxide is the active ingredient in virtually all tooth whitening products. Peroxides react with light and oxygen to form hydroxyl radicals, which penetrate the tooth enamel, breaking down years of stains, and leaving a beautiful whiter smile.
-A gentle LED cold blue light accelerates and intensifies the whitening process. The harmful UV rays and infrared light have been completely removed so it is safe for teeth, gums and skin. It will not irritate the nerves of your teeth that cause sensitivity like some other heat-activated lights on the market.
-Mild pressure is used to squeeze peroxide into the structure of the tooth. Dentists will custom mold a tray of your teeth to press the gel onto the surface of your teeth. This treatment uses a patented mouthpiece without the need for an expensive, custom tray. (In my experience, I spent $400 on a bleaching system including a custom tray with my local dentist after having my braces removed and the bleach was so painful I couldn't stand the exposure long enough to see any results unfortunately)
-Peroxide activity increases with temperature. The combination of the other elements and the heat from your mouth raises the temperature of the peroxide which reduces treatment time.
-The longer you expose your teeth to a combination of peroxide, light, heat and pressure, the whiter your teeth will become- to a point. Peroxide eventually breaks down into water. It “wears out” faster the more light and heat it is exposed to. Therefore a balance must be struck between repetition of applications and exposure time.
It is recommended that you receive 3 whitening sessions of 15 minutes each to assure that your teeth do not revert back to their original color. For tougher stains multiple sessions may be required.
You can expect to see an improvement of 2-8 shades whiter immediately after each session. Results vary from person to person depending on diet, habits, type of discoloration, and genetics.
