About Teeth Whitening

Until a couple of years ago, only dentists could perform teeth whitening treatments. Today, almost anyone that learns how to offer this simple procedure can have a profitable teeth whitening business. It is quick and easy for all parties involved.

Teeth whitening is one of the simplest cosmetic procedures if done right. Doing it right means using a proper whitening agent (that is, a good hydrogen peroxide gel, and in the UK and France you can use non-peroxide teeth whitening gel) and an appropriate whitening accelerator. The most practical accelerator is an LED lamp emitting cold blue light with a wavelength of around 465 nanometers. This wavelength of light is ideal for activating the hydrogen peroxide and accelerating the whitening process.

The procedure is very simple. Hy drogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth. A cold blue light is placed directly in front of the customer's exposed teeth and run for 15-20 minutes per treatment. You typically perform 1 to 3 treatments on each customer during the same session, and the more treatments you perform the better results you obtain.

A cosmetic teeth whitening treatment will NOT make the teeth pearly white. It will make them whiter. How much whiter? It really depends on a multitude of factors, including how stained the teeth were before the whitening, what kind of staining agent caused most of the coloration, how well the person's enamel reacts to peroxide and the number of treatments performed. It also depends on the kind of gel (carbamide vs. hydrogen peroxide), the concentration of the teeth whitening gel and the kind of application system that is used.

Most people will get impressive results while a few will get less dramatic results, but 99% of people are very satisfied with the results they obtain with our system. Some people's teeth cannot really be whitened at all, such as those that were stained by the antibiotic tetracycline or fluorosis. We teach you how to recognize these conditions and tell you how to handle these and many other situations.

Although there are significant differences among the teeth whitening lights available in the market, the most important factor is the gel. Hydrogen peroxide works much better than carbamide peroxide. 16% hydrogen peroxide is the strongest teeth bleaching gel you can use without the use of a gingival barrier. However, this gel is so strong (and therefore gives such good results), that it cannot be used with a mouth tray because with the mouth tray it gives too much gum irritation because some of the gel goes onto the gums. The only way to use this gel and avoid gum irritation is with our proprietary teeth whitening system. We also have a professional teeth whitening kit for dentists that is 35% hydrogen peroxide that includes a gingival barrier and desensitizing gel.

As to the differences in teeth whitening lamps, the main differences are in esthetics and price. Within the few reputable lamps in the industry, you should choose the one that is most practical for your needs, one that looks nicest according to you, and one that is affordable. Just make sure that it is a legitimate LED teeth whitening lamp that emits blue light. Teeth bleaching is a very easy and profitable business, especially when you don't have to invest too much.

I can't believe the difference it made to my teeth. All my friends noticed, and my boyfriend loves it.

Amy, 18

I felt everyone noticed my grey teeth. I would hide my smile in public because I was so embarrassed. Now I have so much confidence, that I can't stop smiling.

Jessica, 26

I feel like a Hollywood star. An extreme makeover, without the extreme.

Madison, 21

I've heard a lot about these teeth whiteners, but never thought they were for me. But when my wife commented that my teeth were looking stained and old, I decided to try UltraWhite. After two weeks of easy home sessions, my teeth are glowing. Even my kids noticed.

Michael, 37

The take home kit is so easy. I used it while watching TV every night, and every day I could see the difference. Now I use the Touch Up pen to keep my teeth white. How easy is this!

Stephen, 32

My teeth were so yellow from years of coffee and redwine. I thought nothing would fix them. Thank you UltraWhite for making my teeth shine again. It has taken years off my looks.
