In office laser whitening is performed by your Brighter Smiles Dentistry professional over a period of four fifteen-minute intervals. The procedure will begin as your teeth are isolated with a paint-on rubber dam to ensure the protection of your gums. Then, a high-concentration peroxide gel is applied to the teeth and a specialized laser light will be shined on your teeth to activate the gel. Patients with particularly stubborn stains may return for a second session or continue whitening at home with a take-home whitening kit.
Teeth whitening is not permanent, it needs to be maintained with regular brushing and flossing, cleanings etc. Dental veneers are a more permanent solution for patients who either would like a whitening option more resistant to future stains or have deep set stains which cannot be removed with teeth whitening alone. At Brighter Smiles Dentistry, teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment as it is a significantly cheaper procedure than dental veneers.

The Chic Flic Teeth Whitening and Lip Gloss Plumper Pen is a product developed by Whiter Image Dental that is designed to be an on-the-go teeth whitener and lip plumper tool in one. The product is effective at providing safe teeth whitening treatments and offers an alternative to more expensive in-office whitening or take-home whitening kits.
The Chic Flic pen utilizes a mint flavored carbamide peroxide whitening gel that helps to whiten teeth effectively and safely. Carbamide peroxide is considered a bleaching agent by the FDA and is often used for cosmetic as well as pharmaceutical applications. In the teeth whitening application in which the product is intended, it works to oxidize extrinsic staining within tooth enamel. This bleaching agent is also used in take-home whitening kits that utilize mouth guards that are worn at night.
