The safety for you is our 1st concern. Our Teeth Whitening Kits have a proven track record of consistently producing excellent results.
Australian legislation sets the maximum levels of Carbamide Peroxide allowed in any consumer products at 18%. Rest assured, we comply with all Australian standards and regulations for teeth whitening.
18% Carbamide Peroxide is still dental-grade. It is the perfect blend of safe and effective and provides less chance of gum irritation and sensitivity than higher strengths. Any teeth whitening product containing over 18% Carbamide Peroxide (or 6% Hydrogen Peroxide) is not allowed to be sold in Australia (unless under supervision of a Dentist)
Teeth Whitening is actually a bleaching process that lightens discolouration of tooth enamel. Our basic system uses an effective whitening solution retained in 2 thermoforming trays (1 upper arch, 1 lower arch) that are worn over your teeth for only 15 to 30 minutes per day until you have reached your desired level of whitening.
- How does it remove stains?
Our system will remove most stains with a gentle action that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel (Carbamide Peroxide), is broken down, oxygen acts upon the stained organic deposits, which oxidises them into a white colour. This process makes the overall tooth colour closer to its natural unstained colour. Your tooth structure remains unchanged. Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of this system. Over 95% of people treated achieve some level of tooth whitening.
NOTE: – Crowns, bridges, bondings, and fillings do not lighten.
- What is the treatment procedure using our Teeth Whitening Kits?
An impression of your teeth will be made by you at home with our easy-to-use instant thermoforming mouldable mouth trays. You will then apply our whitening gel inside the thermoforming trays and place the tray over your teeth. Again, since our system is 18%, you can treat your teeth only 15-30 minutes per day. In most cases, you will see results within only one week.
- What is Carbamide Peroxide?
When Carbamide Peroxide Gel comes into contact with natural teeth, it breaks down into oxygen which penetrates through the pores in the teeth enamel to break down and oxidise the stains, leaving them clear.
This process makes overall teeth colour closer to its natural unstained colour.
All our Gels contains 18% Carbamide Peroxide, plus are made in the USA under strict USFD guidelines and the highest grade permitted to be sold in Australia.
CARBAMIDE PEROXIDE – INGREDIENTS:
18% Carbamide Peroxide Whitening Gel: PROPYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERINE, CARBAMIDE PEROXIDE, LIMONENE (food grade) or PEPPERMINT (all natural food grade)
- What is Remineralising Gel?
Remineralising Gel reduces the sensitivity of your teeth and is especially great for people with sensitive teeth, especially 1st time bleachers. Remineralising Gel is also known as Desensitising Gel.
When a bleaching product is applied to the teeth, it can get under the gum-line and between the teeth. Short-term exposure is a good thing, but if the person does not brush and rinse immediately after treatment, some active gel can remain in crevices and continue oxidising the teeth. Over the next hours, this residue can cause some minor degradation of the teeth and gums which isn’t a concern if it only happens once, but over a lifetime of whitening procedures, can lead to erosion of the tooth structure. The minerals in the Remineralising Gel instantly react with any Carbamide Peroxide present, stopping the action, and protecting the teeth while the potassium nitrate reduces the pain-sensing potential of the nerves.
Simply put, the teeth bleaching process breaks down the enamel and needs to be replenished for structural integrity. Remineralising gel thus works to maintain a strong and healthy tooth enamel.
The application of remineralisation gels allows essential minerals to be deposited onto the teeth enamel, this strengthens the general tooth structure, replenishes the enamel, making the teeth stronger, and less sensitive. They are highly recommended to be used when whitening your teeth.
Using a remineralisation gel after teeth whitening is the perfect way to protect your teeth, it will make your teeth strong, healthy and less prone to sensitivity. Our remineralisation gels use a special formulation of calcium, phosphate and fluoride to replenish and strengthen the enamel.
Benefits of using Remineralising Gels are –
- Maintains stronger enamel
- Reduces the risk of tooth sensitivity
- Can remineralise small lesions in teeth
- Can be used overnight for best results
REMINERALISING GEL – INGREDIENTS:
Remineralising Gel: ACTIVE INGREDIENT: PROPYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERINE, CALCIUM PYROPHOSPHATE, POTASSIUM NITRATE, TRIETHANOLAMINE, CARBOPOL
- Is the whitening process permanent?
For most people, the treatment will last for many years. Your teeth have become stained in the first place from consuming the foods and beverages. Upon the completion of your initial bleaching process, your teeth are restored close to their natural white colour. Exposure to foods, drinks (especially coffee, colas and red wines), smoking and other consumables will gradually darken teeth again over time. You may want to periodically bleach your teeth with your Teeth Whitening Kits. After an initial treatment, most people do touch ups about once every 6-12 months.
- Is this product the same thing dentists sell me for $500 or more?
Yes, our Teeth Whitening Kits use the same active ingredients, and methodology as those used in professional dental offices. We provide you with thermoforming trays and supply you with a USA made high quality, effective whitening gel exactly like the formula used in dental offices. All our Gels are the Maximum percentage (18% Carbamide Peroxide) permitted to be sold over the counter in Australia
- What causes tooth discolouration?
There are many causes. The most common include consumption of foods, coffee, tea, wine, soft drinks and smoking. In other words, our teeth naturally get more and more stained as time goes by and as we continue to live our lives. Our Teeth Whitening Kits will help you to overcome most of these issues.
- Who may benefit from our Teeth Whitening Kits?
Almost everyone. However, there are some cases where treatment may not be effective. Tooth lightening is ideal for patients who have healthy, unrestored teeth and would like a whiter, brighter smile. Tetracycline discolouration and artificial dental work are usually not greatly responsive to dental bleaching.
- Is it safe to bleach my teeth at home with Teeth Whitening Kits?
Yes, our at-home bleaching system is specially designed to be an easy-to-use system with detailed usage instructions. Over a decade of research indicates that whitening teeth with Carbamide Peroxide is safe and effective. All of our products comply with USA FDA regulations.
- How long does the bleaching process take?
Results are dependent upon each individual characteristics of each person and the daily wear-time of the thermoforming trays, but most people usually see results within the first week. Maximum results occur over the next 14-21 days.
- Are there any side effects?
Some people experience temporary tooth sensitivity during treatment of Teeth Whitening Kits. Others have reported discomfort in the gums or in loose fillings. Gum irritation usually disappears within 1-3 days after beginning the procedure and always upon the discontinuation or completion of treatment. There are no other significant side effects. You should not use this product if you are/have
- Have health problems
- Periodontal disease or gums that are in poor condition
- Wear braces
- Had recent oral surgery
- Have decayed teeth
- Have roots that are exposed
- Have colitis, or have jaw problems.
The manufacturer and re-seller assume no responsibility for any usage of product. You should consult with a dentist before attempting any at-home treatments and understand that there are risks involved if not doing so. A small percentage of people may experience reversible tooth sensitivity and gum irritation which disappears when use ends, or by decreasing the amount of time you bleach your teeth each time, or by increasing the amount of time between bleaching sessions.
- How much whitening gel does it take per treatment?
Each individual tray application (upper or lower arch) will use approximately 0.25 to 0.5 ml of whitening gel. The lower amount of 0.25 ml per treatment is accomplished by 2 things: experience of using the whitening process, dabbing just a small amount of gel in the frontal portion of each tooth exposed when smiling only, and most importantly, trimming the thermo forming trays at the gingival line (tooth/gum line). If you take small scissors and trim the trays on the gingival line, you do not have a waste factor of gel and do not expose the soft tissue to the process.
Example – if you use 0.25 ml per tray (.5 ml for upper & lower trays combined) and use the application 5 days per week for 1 month then you will have used up 1 x 10ml syringe of Carbamide Peroxide Gel.
ie. each 10ml syringe could last you for up to 1 month.
- How often should I whiten my teeth with the Teeth Whitening Kits?
We recommend once a day for 15 to 30 minutes without the LED light and 10 minutes with the LED light. If you receive the results you are looking for in a few application you should use the remainder as needed to brighten your smile as required.
- OTHER WHITENING PRODUCTS
- Whitening Toothpastes – Inexpensive ($3 – $10) – If the product doesn’t contain at least 10% Carbamide Peroxide, it probably will not work well. Additionally, Carbamide Peroxide must stay on your teeth for a period of time to be effective.
- Dental Practice – Expensive ($300-$600) – The process consists of the dentist forming a mouth piece for you and dispensing Carbamide Peroxide. Our tooth whitening system works the same way except you form the tray yourself.
- Laser Bleaching – Expensive $500 -$1,000. This procedure is usually done in a few hours at the dentist office using a light source to speed up the process.
- Whitening Strips – Inexpensive strips coated with a low percentage (non- dental strength) whitening gel. Strips cover front teeth only. Strips do not work well in removing stains between teeth. Because of the low percentage of whitening gel and ineffective non fitting delivery method, additional strips are required for frequent maintenance.
- Other Information – Carbamide Peroxide has an approximate shelf life of 2 years at room temperature plus another year if refrigerated.
