  • PRODUCTS
  • PROS
  • CONS
  • TIPS
  • Safe & Gentle: Causes little tooth sensitivity or gum irritation on most customers.
  • Very Effective: Gives professional results when used properly.
  • Multi-Purpose: Can be used to whiten, to prevent color regression, to enhance results after a professional whitening treatment, or to maintain a whitening treatment.
  • Long-Lasting: Results last up to a year.
  • Length of Time: It takes a longer time to see results than with hydrogen peroxide. We recommend that you use it daily for up to 10 days and you need to leave it on for at least 30 minutes per application.
  • A small percentage of people are allergic to carbamide peroxide teeth whitening gels and might get swelling and blistering on their lips and gums. This goes away but can be painful.
  • Use EVERY day without skipping – or even twice a day. Just don’t skip a day.
  • If you have sensitive skin, rub vitamin e oil on lips and gums before and after using. You can also apply lip balm before using.
  • Look for concentrations between 22% and 44% for maximum safety and effectiveness.
  • Use remineralizing gel at the end of the whitening treatment.
  • Most Effective: HP is the most effective whitening ingredient available. It all depends on the concentration: the higher the concentration, the more dramatic the whitening. This is what most dentists use for chair-side treatments.
  • Fast: HP is the fastest way to dramatically whiten teeth. It’s the most effective gel for 1 hour tooth whitening.
  • May cause tooth sensitivity and gum/lip irritation if not used properly or in too high of a concentration. Needs refrigeration. For these reasons, it is seldom used in home whitening kits.
  • A small percentage of people are allergic to hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening gels and might get swelling and blistering on their lips and gums. This goes away but can be painful.
  • Do not attempt to use anything over 16% at home.
  • Protect lips and gums with vitamin E and/or lip balm.
  • Use with a cheek retractor. Follow up with remineralizing gel.
  • Do not do entire treatment more than once every six months.
  • Deluxe Home Whitening Kit
  • Safe: Releases less than 0.1% hydrogen peroxide.
  • Non-Peroxide: Meets restrictions on teeth whitening products in the European Union.
  • Effective: Very effective. Moreover, since it doesn’t open up the pores of the enamel it’s safe to be used more often, without harming your tooth enamel.
  • Fast: Results are immediate.
  • Treatment has to be repeated often.
  • Results don’t last as long as with peroxide-based gels.
  • Should be used with special “activator/cleaning” liquid, which needs to be rubbed on the teeth for about one minute prior to the gel application.
  • Safe: Special non-abrasive formula.
  • Non-Peroxide: It releases 0% peroxide so it complies with restrictions in the European Union.
  • Effective: Very fast-acting and effective.
  • Natural: Sodium bicarbonate is considered to be a natural ingredient.
  • Too high concentrations of sodium bicarbonate can be aggressive on the enamel.
  • As fast and effective as peroxide gel, but results don’t last as long.

Whiten Teeth Professionally

WHITEN TEETH PROFESSIONALLY

It used to be that if you wanted to get your teeth whitened, you had to go to the dentist. But now if you want to whiten your teeth professionally, you’ll find the service offered in salons, spas, gyms, in malls, and even on cruise ships! We discuss the pros and cons of dental whitening versus non-dental whitening here:

AT THE DENTIST

There are many advantages to having your teeth professionally whitened at a dentist office, such as…

DENTAL EXAM AND TEETH CLEANING

The dentist can give you an exam to determine if you have any problem with your teeth or gums. A dental professional can also clean your teeth if needed, which would allow for better results from your teeth whitening treatment.

CUSTOM MOUTH TRAYS

The custom mouth trays a dentist makes will give a better fit than any mouth tray that comes in a home whitening kit. The better fit helps to put the gel in better contact with tooth surfaces as well as helps to prevent seepage of the gel onto the gums, which could cause some irritation.

HIGHER POWERED GELS

Only a dentist is able to use gels with the most potent concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. Because these gels are so strong, they require the application of a gingival barrier. A gingival barrier may only be applied by a dentist or dental professional and protects the gums from the powerful gels.

Many dentists swear by our Advanced Kit (16% hydrogen peroxide) and our Pro Kit (38% hydrogen peroxide) but we also manufacture whitening products for dentists under several private labels. Just ask if the kit your dentist uses is made in the USA by Beaming White! If so, you’re sure to get good results.

Probably the main reason people opt to have their teeth professionally whitened by a non-dentist is the higher cost typically associated with having their teeth whitened at the dentist. The other reason is because with advances in teeth whitening technology, non-dental professionals are able to provide excellent teeth whitening results in less than an hour.

AT A SALON, SPA OR KIOSK

Today, just about anyone in the beauty industry may professionally whiten your teeth because most countries have determined that teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment, not a medical or dental procedure.

 

These teeth whitening professionals are able to guide you with a self-administered teeth whitening treatment that gives you results that can be just as good and as fast as from a dentist, but at a lower cost. If you want to whiten your teeth fast and effectively, but also affordably, and you don’t mind applying the whitening gel to your teeth yourself, this might be the perfect option for you.

 

Be sure to always ask for the Beaming White System when you want safe and effective 1 hour teeth whitening (aka laser teeth whitening).
