Q – Does teeth whitening work?

A - Yes, teeth whitening does work on natural teeth that have experienced some surface and/or subsurface stains from eating, drinking or smoking things that leave stains on or in the tooth enamel. Our customers have been very pleased with their results from our professional whitening services.

 

Q – How long does teeth whitening last?

A - Average results for peroxide-based whitening gels last 6 months to 1 year and this also depends entirely upon your own tooth enamel and on your habits.

 

Q – Does it hurt?

A - Most people experience absolutely no sensitivity with Beaming White products. Less than 5% reported tooth sensitivity or gum irritation from our Advanced Kit – which is for professional use only and contains 16% hydrogen peroxide gel.

Less than 1% of our customers reported experiencing an allergic type of reaction to our peroxide-based whitening gel. An allergic reaction can be painful and even cause blisters. This risk is included in the warnings on all Beaming White teeth whitening products with peroxide-based gels. If this happens to you, discontinue use immediately and, if desired, see your Smile Glam by Holly Whitening professional about methods to help the skin heal faster. We recommend applying pure vitamin e oil to the irritated parts of the mouth.

People with gum disease might experience irritation because their gum tissues are not healthy. Only use whitening products if your gums don’t bleed when you floss.

 

People with tiny cracks in their tooth enamel, any stage of dental carries, or very thin or porous enamel might experience tooth sensitivity from peroxide-based whitening gels. If this happens to you, discontinue use and see Smile Glam by Holly whitening professional about effective ways to prevent and eliminate any potential tooth sensitivity.  We offer a Minerals Enamel Booster, as well as the remineralizing and desensitizing gel that comes in some of our kits, does help with tooth sensitivity.
