Our smile, particularly the color of our teeth, is usually the first thing someone notices about us. People with white teeth are often considered friendlier, richer, and more attractive. You want to whiten your smile to make a better first impression. You’ve tried whitening kits from the local pharmacy, but they don’t work and leave your teeth feeling sensitive. Fortunately, there’s an effective, pain-free way to brighten your smile by using GLO for teeth whitening in Phillipsburg.
What is GLO Whitening?
GLO stands for Guided Light Optics. The way it differs from other whitening treatments is that it relies on heat and light to do its job. There are three parts:
- Bleaching gel
The bleaching gel is a highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide solution that does not contain any harmful chemicals, such as alcohol, that are frequently found in other whitening products. When the gel is applied to the teeth, it separates the bonds between the molecules of stains, making them less visible and allowing the natural whiteness of your teeth to shine through.
Once the gel is placed, it is held on by the mouthpiece. This ensures that the gel maintains maximum contact with the teeth for best results.
Inside the mouthpiece are a series of lights which heat up the gel. The light speeds up the molecules in the gel and make the process happen more quickly.
How Does the GLO Whitening Process Work?
You have two options for how to receive GLO treatment: in the office or at home. If you come into the office, a team member will apply the bleaching gel to the front surfaces of your teeth. Then they will attach the mouthpiece and activate the light. After just 32 minutes, the treatment is done, and your teeth will be 6-10 shades whiter. Your cosmetic dentist in Phillipsburg will provide you with gel and a mouthpiece to continue whitening at home.
Taking the GLO kit home can be more convenient for some patients. You can go about your day at home while waiting for your new and improved smile. It is recommended that you complete 4 consecutive 8-minute treatments a day for 5 days or until you feel more comfortable with your smile.
What are the Benefits of GLO Whitening?
GLO Whitening has several advantages over other methods of brightening smiles, including:
- Less mess. Strips or gels can drip, making the process a mess. The GLO mouthpiece prevents the gel from getting anywhere besides your teeth.
- No sensitivity. The light and heat used in GLO is specially designed to not cause tooth sensitivity.
- Effective and long-lasting. GLO has been clinically proven to give you a more efficient and long-lasting white smile than strips, trays, and other whitening systems.
If you’ve dealt with disappointment because of over-the-counter whiteners, consider GLO. You’ll achieve the smile you’ve been waiting for in no time! Contact your dentist about GLO treatment today!
