FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How white will my teeth get?
Everyone's teeth will respond differently. Your results will depend on how porous your teeth are, current tooth shade, treament time, and the composition of your teeth. After undergoing whitening with the GLOW Teeth Whitening System, teeth shades will brighten up to 14 shades, with an average improvement of five to eight shades with each 20 minute session. Your end result will be a whiter, healthier smile. Everyone's teeth are different and will have a natural stop point. We recommend a 60 minute session for optimal results and to remove all layers of staining.
How long will the whitening last?
This varies from person to person and depends on your diet, lifestyle, and personal oral hygiene. However, with proper maintenance and periodic touch-up treatments, you can keep your smile looking great for a lifetime. For extended long term results, you may choose to use the Home Care Maintenance Kit and/or Touch-up Pen for on the GO maintenance.
Is GLOW Teeth Whitening safe?
Yes, the GLOW whitening gel formulation is an organic plant and mineral based product with built in enamel building qualities. Scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the GLOW Teeth Whitening Gels are safe and effective. Our whitening equipment is FDA approved and has been used throughout the dental and cosmetic community for years. GLOW Teeth Whitening does not change or damage the structure of the teeth; it merely lifts and removes the stains, making your teeth whiter.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment times are offered at 20, 40, and 60 minutes depending on the discoloration of your teeth and how white you want them. 60 minute sessions are highly recommended for maximum results. It takes no longer than the time it would for you to have a haircut or a facial - it is that simple!
What is the difference?
The GLOW teeth whitening system uses the latest LED cold laser technology and our signature whitening gel consisting of natural plant and mineral ingredients. Our system has proven to yield superior results with little to no sensitivity when compared to other whitening systems.
Does it hurt?
Most clients experience no sensitivity because our signature laser gel is all natural, however, everyone's sensitivity level varies. A very small percentage of clients may feel some tooth sensitivity, especially if they are dehydrated or consume very cold/hot foods or drinks within two hours after the whitening session. Any sensitivity is short term and gone within 24-48 hours. We do offer solutions for those that are concerned about sensitivity.
Will GLOW Teeth Whitening work on crowns and fillings?
Yes, GLOW teeth whitening will remove staining from existing dental work and take it back to the original color. Our goal is to clean up the existing dental work and whiten the natural teeth to match for a nice even smile. We cannot whiten them beyond the original color of the material used at the time of placement. If your existing dental work is not in your smile line it won’t matter either way because it is not visible.
Should I consider GLOW Teeth Whitening?
Studies have shown that people with whiter teeth look younger and there is a correlation between high self-esteem and a bright, confident smile. GLOW Teeth Whitening is a great way to instantly enhance your appearance.
Is GLOW Teeth Whitening treatment for everyone?
The GLOW Teeth Whitening treatment provides dramatic results for anyone who wants to whiten their teeth. This includes people with teeth that have been stained by smoking or by substances such as coffee, tea, soda, wine and other consumable items. We also see great results on people with teeth stained by tetracycline, fluoride, and hereditary discoloration.
