How does the teeth whitening process work?
Teeth Whitening is a process that lightens discolorations of tooth enamel. Celebrity Smile Teeth Whitening take home kits use an effective whitening gel formula applied with a revolutionary pen applicator, using a soft applicator tip, daily until you have reached your desired level of whitening. Using professional-dental grade strength whitening gel formulated with 6% hydrogen peroxide, 18% carbamide peroxide gel and sensitive free non peroxide gel - is the most widely used gels and most desirable methods to effectively whiten your teeth. The Advanced Whitening Kits include our special easy to use clear cheek retractors unlike traditional messy whitening kits that use moulded mouth trays.
How does it remove stains?
Celebrity Smile Teeth Whitening products will remove most stains by performing a gentle reaction that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel (hydrogen peroxide, carbamide peroxide or non peroxide depending on your product), is broken down, oxygen acts upon the stained organic deposits, which oxidizes them into a white colour. This process makes the overall tooth shade closer to its natural unstained shade. Your tooth structure remains unchanged. Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety the effectiveness of this type of system. Over 98% of people treated achieve some level of tooth whitening. Crowns, bridges, bondings, and fillings do not lighten than their original colour and will not be affected in any way from the gel formula.
How long should I keep Teeth Whitening gel on my teeth before I rinse or brush?
It is advised to only rinse your teeth to remove the excess gel formula before apply a second or third treatment. Brushing in between sessions is not necessary with the use of Celebrity Smile Teeth Whitening products as the gel dissolves naturally with your saliva, leaving your mouth clean and fresh, However, you choose to rinse in between applications and only brush 1 hour after final treatment to avoid any gum or tooth sensitivity.
Why is there bubbling and fizzing of the gel after application?
The bubbling and fizzing is actually part of the whitening process and the gel formula doing its job, the bubbling and fizzing is the formula working as the surface stains are oxidising.
