THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE CHEMISTRY
The Science Behind
Teeth Whitening System
We provide the best in-office teeth whitening sessions available. Our Promise is that each SmileLABS™ location is spotlessly clean, staffed by pleasant, trained and knowledgeable SmileLABS™ Team Members who use only the most cutting-edge Teeth Whitening Products.
The Infinity™ Series Whitening Accelerator Lights
Professional whitening is best performed with light technology. Light technology is referred to as photocyclization and was first approved by the FDA for teeth whitening in 1996. The Infinty™ Series lights feature 8 LEDs (Light Emitting Diode) "bulbs" that emit a cool blue light with a wavelength of 480-520 nanometers, which is well within the visible light spectrum wavelengths. The light technology system works by accelerating or catalyzing the chemical reaction, which results in the speeding up the session time. During a session, the accelerator light is placed directly in front of the customer's open mouth for 15 minutes. The Infinity™ Series lights emit the perfect wavelength of light and are designed to accelerate the whitening process of our teeth whitening gel.
New Paint-On Technique & Teeth Whitening Gel
The procedure is very simple. First, the customer inserts a mouth prop between their back teeth to slightly open the mouth. Second, the client then inserts a disposable cheek retractor in their mouth to pull the lips and cheeks open slightly and to expose the teeth. Then, the client applies a tiny droplet of whitening gel to each tooth to be bleached and spreads each drop evenly over the tooth with a special brush. Our teeth whitening gel utilizes peroxide-based chemistry. SmileLAB's teeth whitening gel has a water base which means that the whitening gel hydrates the teeth throughout the whitening process. Hydration of the teeth is important because that is what prevents sensitivity. The client then puts on the protective eyewear, adjusts the light correctly, the light is turned on and the session starts. The session time is in 15-30 minute intervals and may be repeated once per 24 hours maximum for a total of 45 minutes per day.
It's Simple. Affordable. And Safe.
Results are impressive. SmileLABS teeth whitening treatment is considered by industry insiders to be the best. A 15-30 minute session yields an improvement of between 2-4 shades, and a double session typically yields a 5-8 shade improvement. The more sessions a person does over the course of six months to a year, the whiter the teeth may get and remain white and bright.
The SmileLABS™ Cosmetic Teeth Whitening System is very simple, but very effective as well. It uses technology that has been in use by dentists for over twenty years. It is a safe, pleasant, and very quick pro to whiten your teeth in a fifteen to thirty-minute session, and at a price that just about, anyone can afford.
Dental science has known that peroxide-based bleaching gel will break down into its working components of what is known as free oxygen radical atoms. These oxygen atoms are very reactive in this free radical state and will cleave (break into smaller pieces) the long-chained chromophores (color containing molecules) that are abundant in stains on the outer surfaces and inside the microscopic pores of the enamel (outermost layer) of adult teeth. When the atoms leave these long molecules into smaller pieces, these pieces are no longer perceived as being “colored” or “stained” by our eyes and brain. The stain molecules are therefore still there but in smaller uncolored pieces. The result is that the teeth appear whiter and brighter.
Dental research scientists also discovered that this breakdown of peroxide into free radicals would occur much more rapidly if the peroxide were exposed to bright intense blue-green light in the wavelength of 480-520 nanometers. So this light greatly speeds up the reaction that makes teeth whiter, allowing cosmetic teeth whitening to occur in a matter of minutes rather than many hours of exposure to the peroxide. The result is bright white teeth in 15-30 minutes.
The SmileLABS™ Cosmetic Teeth Whitening System uses exactly this science in its whitening gels and accelerator light. We find that exposure to gel and light for 15 minutes will result in an average color change of 2-4 shades whiter as measured on a dental shade guide, and 5-8 shades whiter in a double session of two 15 minute sessions back to back in the same appointment. So, let us take care of the science, and let your customers have whiter teeth fast using the SmileLABS™ Cosmetic Teeth Whitening System.
