What is GLO Science teeth whitening?
GLO teeth whitening is a process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin.

What causes discoloration of teeth?
There are many causes. The most common include aging and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During the formation of teeth, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Who may benefit from GLO Science teeth whitening?
Almost anyone. However, teeth whitening may not be as effective or some as it is for others. We can determine if you are a viable candidate for GLO teeth whitening through a thorough oral exam, including a teeth shade assessment.

Do many people whiten their teeth?
More people whiten their teeth than you might imagine. A bright, sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. The GLO teeth whitening system makes it easier and faster than ever before.

Is the GLO ScenceTeeth Whitening safe?
Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider teeth whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. As with any teeth whitening product, GLO teeth whitening is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.

How long do the results last?
By following some simple post teeth whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. We recommend minimizing drinking coffee, tea, and red wine and eating blueberries.  Coffee with milk stains less than drinking black coffee.

How does the GLO Teeth Whitening In-Office and take-home whitening work?
 The GLO Science in-office whitening uses 30% hydrogen peroxide. The GLO Science Take-Home Kits have 10% hydrogen peroxide. Both whitening types used the patented GLO Science PRO mouthpiece with LED light. 

What does a patient experience during the GLO Teeth Whitening procedure?
During the teeth whitening procedure, patients may comfortably watch television or listen to music.

How is exposure to the GLO teeth whitening light controlled?
The Sapphire teeth whitening procedure requires that all soft tissue in and around the mouth be protected. The clinician is required to monitor the procedure to insure any exposed skin or tissue is isolated and protected. Protective eyewear is required during the procedure. Light sensitive individuals including those undergoing PUVA (Psoralen+UV Radiation) therapy or other photo-chemotherapy, as well as patients with melanoma, should not undergo the Sapphire Teeth Whitening procedure. Also patients taking light sensitive drugs or substances, should consult their physician prior to Sapphire Teeth Whitening.

How long does GLO In-Office teeth Whitening take?
The complete teeth whitening procedure takes one hour.  A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual GLO Teeth Whitening session.
