Beaming White invented the paint-on teeth whitening system for use by non-dentists several years ago, and we have never looked back. It’s what propelled us to where we are today because it turned out to be the best way to whiten teeth when you can’t touch the customer’s teeth or protect the gums. In the US, only dental professionals can touch the customer’s mouth, so if you can’t touch the mouth, you can’t possibly apply a gingival barrier, which is what dentists use to protect the gums when using stronger teeth whitening gels such as the 38% hydrogen peroxide in our Pro Whitening Kit.
When we say that we invented the kit we mean that we made it possible for non-dentists to have a paint-on kit because these are the exact kinds of kits that dentists already used. We took that concept and created the first self-administered chair-side paint-on kit. Until that point, the only kind of kit that spas and salons used were mouth-tray kits, be they pre-loaded trays or the kinds that the service provider loads with gel from a syringe, like our traditional whitening kit.
The Advaned Kit comes with a cheek retractor to keep the lips away from the teeth while keeping the mouth open with no effort on behalf of the customer. The customer is given a mirror and uses the pen that contains the 16% hydrogen peroxide gel while he/she is guided by the service provider on how to properly apply the gel. Once the gel is applied, the operator turns on the blue LED light for 15 minutes while the customer relaxes. The kit contains enough whitening gel to perform up to 4 applications, but they must all be done on the same person preferably during the same visit. We recommend a minimum of 2 applications but preferably 3 for better results.
16% hp gel is too strong to be used in a mouth tray as it causes too much gum irritation because any gel put into a mouth tray goes onto the gums. This means that the only way to get the excellent results that 16% hp gives is with the paint-on system like the Advanced Kit because the gel is painted exactly onto the teeth and not the soft tissue.
Customers usually complain that the mouth tray itself is very tiring regardless of what gel is used, as you have to strain to smile so that the teeth would be exposed to the light. Hence, the cheek retractor, which requires no effort from the customer, is much more comfortable than a mouth tray, and it actually exposes the teeth to the light a lot more. In addition, there is no mouth tray between the gel on the teeth and the blue light. With a mouth tray, regardless of how clear the material is, the tray will always refract or reflect some of the light, so there isn’t as much light reaching the teeth as you would like.
Today, around 98% of the whitening kits we sell in North America to non-dentists are the Advanced Kit. Most service providers have tried mouth tray kits, and once they try the Advanced Kit they prefer it. Ask for a free sample today if you have never tried it, and you’ll see what we mean.
