Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH WHITER CAN MY TEETH BE?
Tests show that, after our treatment, teeth score from 2 – 14 shades lighter on the teeth shade scale and are visibly whiter. Individual results will depend on how discoloured the teeth were originally, however the end result will be whiter, shinier teeth.
IS THE TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR ANYONE?
This treatment delivers exceptional results to people whose teeth have been stained by smoking or by substances like coffee, tea, or cola drinks. However pregnant women, young children, and customers with periodontal disease are discouraged from undergoing this procedure.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, scientific studies have shown that using Hydrogen Peroxide to whiten teeth is both very effective and very safe. The dental industry has used it in teeth whitening for over twenty years. Our specifically created gel does not change or damage the structure of teeth, there is no harm done to the enamel, dentine or the teeth at all; it merely makes teeth whiter and brighter.
DOES IT HURT?
The vast majority of customers experience no pain or discomfort. In extremely rare cases, some slight discomfort can arise, which is easily remedied with over the counter medication. In the very unusual instance of sensitivity, we recommend Difflam Mouth Gel, which is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, and it can be put on both the teeth and the gums.
HOW LONG WILL THE WHITENING LAST?
This varies from person to person and depends on your diet, but the effects should usually last from 6 months to a year, in some cases the effects last longer.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TREATMENTS?
Our whitening technique whitens your teeth immediately and has no side effects. The result is 30% better than home whitening products and comparable technologies and at 1/3 of the price (or less!)
WHO WILL BE ASSISTING ME DURING THE PROCESS?
A trained Authorized Dealer or their employee will assist you. They are not dentists or dental personnel. This is not a dental procedure; it is a cosmetic procedure. They will not be performing any invasive actions. They don’t insert their fingers, instruments, or anything in a customer’s mouth.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Each session cycle takes 15 minutes and up to 2 or more cycles can be requested to get the best effect. It is that simple!
WILL IT WHITEN MY CROWNS OR VENEERS?
Any whitening treatment will only ever bring teeth that are crowns, veneers, fillings, plates, bonded etc, back to the original colour they were, when the work was done by your dentist. However, your teeth will not only be whiter after a Smile Labs ‘whitening’, but also lighter and brighter when the stains are removed.
The specially formulated gel does not damage the bonding, caps, veneers, plates, porcelain etc, and is exceptionally effective, with all of the teeth looking great on completion.
