A Bright White Smile is a popular accessory for almost everyone today! 




Important Information Before and After treatment.



BriteWhite is the first chair-side professional teeth whitening systemUnlike laser, plasma light, halogen or

ultraviolet, this exciting technology utilizes cool Blue Light Emitting Diodes to activate the custom blended gel; 

attacking discolorations without affecting the pulp or softening the enamel.


BriteWhite Teeth Whitening System® treats the entire front and back teeth by inserting the mouth plate 

directly inside the mouth during the treatment time, without the need for cheek retractors, rubber dams, or 

goggles.  This method of teeth bleaching prevents the gels from oxidizing, as with other out-side-the mouth 

devices.



An educated person is our best client.  To better prepare for your appointment please read this guide to 

understand what to expect from your in-office teeth whitening appointment. After performing thousands of 

procedures, we’ve learned quite a bit. 


Below is everything you need to know about your appointment. For best results it’s important to have a recent 

dental cleaning. The whitening gel cannot penetrate through plaque and calculus.



Pre & Post Instructions



You do not have to do anything specific other than slightly brush your teeth staying away from the gum line 

before coming in for your teeth whitening treatment. Please DO NOT floss before your appointment!


It is not necessary to have your teeth cleaned and scraped at the dentist prior to your whitening treatment, we

do however recommend your usual 6 months regular check-ups at the dentist.



When You Arrive



You will be greeted by a friendly technician. The technician will go through everything with you in detail, do a

consultation and answer any questions you may have.


You will sit back and relax in the soothing environment. We will insert the cheek retractor, take a color shade 

measurement and apply a seal barrier. 


We will apply the whitening gel and activate the LED light which will acctivate the first 15 minute session.


After the first session is completed we will reapply a new layer of tooth whitening gel and start the second 15 

minute session.


We remove the cheek retractor and you will see your new dazzling white smile in the mirror.

Whitening Process - Teeth Whitening Results Cannot Be Predicted



The Whitening Treatment


Teeth Whitening works by exfoliating stains from inside your teeth to bring them back to their natural color. 

Teeth whitening is a process that uses a 25% hydrogen peroxide gel, the gel is activated via a special UV light. 

Your lips and gums are completely covered and protected throughout the entire procedure. 


Whitening is considered one of the safest procedures available in dentistry.  The procedure consists of three to 

four 15-minute sessions.  A fresh layer of whitening gel is applied after each session as the old gel is removed 

from your teeth.



We will measure your initial shade, and the final shade to see how many shades lighter you got.  But there’s no

way to predict how many shades lighter your teeth will get beforehand.  The whitening process removes stains 

that we all accumulate over the years from coffee, tea, juice, soda, fruits and berries, sauces, salads etc…The 

final shade is your natural tooth color, which is unique for everyone.  



The Whitening Results Will Look Natural



Some clients desire for their teeth to look as white as Chiclets.  Others will tell us that they want their teeth to

look natural, not too white.  Since the whitening process removes stains to bring out the natural tooth color, 

the results after in-office whitening will always look natural.  Some people are blessed with having a natural 

Hollywood smile.  While others, even many famous Hollywood actors, require veneers to get those pearly 

whites to look more like Chiclets.



Results are Instantaneous



You will see results immediately after the whitening procedure.  We’ll be able to take your new tooth shade and

measure how much lighter the teeth have gotten. However, the teeth immediately after the whitening are 

dehydrated, as they’ve lost moisture. 


There’s  a bit of a rebound as the teeth regain their moisture over the next several days.  This is also why we 

recommend not to choose the shade for any dental work that same day. If you plan to proceed with any cosmetic 

work such as veneers or crowns we generally suggest waiting a week before picking a shade.



Crowns, Veneers and Bonding Won’t Change Color



Any previous dental work does not change color.  Crowns and veneers are made of porcelain, the shade of 

which cannot be changed. A dental bonding is filling, the color of which is also picked before they're placed, 

thus they cannot be lightened. That doesn’t mean that you should not do whitening if you have crown, veneer,

or filling on a front tooth. Often the color of  the restorative work is actually lighter than the rest of the teeth.  


Over the years the natural teeth may have gotten stained or the shade was ever matched perfectly in the first 

place. You have the option to look in the mirror after each session to decide when it’s time to stop the teeth 

whitening. If you’re unsatisfied with your current bonding, veneer or crown you should also consider replacing 

them as an option. We will consult with you before starting the treatment to answer all of your concerns and 

discuss possible options.



White Spots on Teeth



Many of us have white spots or streaks on our teeth, often we may not even realize they exist. We’ll inspect your 

teeth before starting the procedure and point to any white spots we find. They’re often covered up by stains and 

don’t show up prominently.  


The white spots may have been caused by previous orthodontic treatment or they may be genetic. As we remove 

the stains from teeth with whitening, the white spots will become more prominent. The white spots will also get 

even brighter because they will whiten as well.  Usually, after a few days the white spots will blend in a bit more. 

But expect them to possibly stand out more in the beginning.



Dietary Restrictions Post Whitening



For the first 48 hours the pores in enamel are open, they can absorb stains faster than before.  As rule anything 

that stains a white shirt, will stain your teeth.  We realize that the diet is very restrictive. Please do your best, 

if you happen to eat or drink something you shouldn’t then brush your teeth or rinse with water right after. 

If you plan on drinking coffee please do so with a straw, this way only the back of your teeth are exposed to 

coffee.



Sensitivity From Teeth Whitening



Teeth Sensitivity during and after teeth whitening is an important concern for our clients and our office. We 

want you to be comfortable during and after the procedure. While 90% of our clients complete the entire 

treatment, it’s important to understand that completing the three or four 15-minute sessions f teeth whitening is 

not for everyone. We monitor our clients closely and encourage them to let us know when they start feeling 

sensitivity. 


Zinger Sensitivity is a “zing,” or a “zap” that your teeth may feel during the teeth whitening procedure. One or 

two is normal but more than that means that it’s time to stop.  Our clients generally get good results even if 

they’ve completed just 2 sessions. Sensitivity is the body’s natural way of telling you that it’s time to stop. 


In a recent survey of 250 clients who had teeth whitening in our office; 89% reported little or no sensitivity after 

tooth whitening, 9% reported some sensitivity2% of clients reported discomfort for the first 24 hours.



Pain Management



Although moderate to severe sensitivity is rare, unfortunately a small percentage (~11 %) of our clients will 

experience some discomfort after the whitening. Although we try to encourage everyone to stop when their teeth 

start to feel sensitive, it’s not always easy for the client to stop before sensitivity increases. 


Taking an anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen, Advil, Aleve etc…relieves the nerves inside teeth that got

inflamed during the whitening treatment. Please note: Tylenol is not an anti-inflammatory, it works best when 

taken in combination with an anti-inflammatory.  We recommend taking 400mg (2 pills) every 4 hours if 

sensitivity persists. Certain toothpastes such as Sensodyne can relieve sensitivity. At home, we recommend 

applying the toothpaste for sensitivity to your teeth for 5-10 minutes.



Whitening Is Not for Pregnant Women



Although teeth whitening is a very safe procedure for most. Doctors in general do not recommend any elective 

procedures for pregnant women.  Even if the risk is just 0.000001% it’s still something that’s not worth taking. 

There has not been any harm ever reported, it’s just not a risk worth taking.



How are Teeth Whitened?



There are more products available every year to help whiten your teeth. But behind them all, there are really 

only two scientific approaches to a brighter smile: one is surface stain removal and the other is interior 

bleaching.



What causes tooth staining, yellowing and discoloration?



There are many reasons why your teeth lose their beautiful whiteness. 


The most common reasons for discoloration are:



Genetics



Normal teeth may be shining white or even have a pale undertone of yellow, brown or grey, or may be more

severely stained; it all depends on your genes. Some visible discoloration due to enetic dental abnormalities 

generally occurs in tooth's "dentin," the material that lies beneath a tooth's enamel surface. These stains can

sometimes be improved by whitening, sometimes not.



Physical Causes



Everyday wear and tear and illness can also cause teeth to stain. Regular use of cola drinks, medications, tea, 

coffee, cigarettes and other tobacco products may cause surface staining, however, people with this normal 

kind of discoloration are good candidates for teeth whitening, except in specific instances. 



Tetracycline



Tetracycline stains are dark, and the surprise for dentists that haven’t treated this much is that the deeper they 

go into the tooth, the darker the stain gets. Ordinary teeth whitening solutions don’t always have good effect. 

Fortunately, BriteWhite System is able to treat these stains. Tetracycline teeth are often hard to whiten but as

this photo shows you will see improvement with our BriteWhite system. 



What Makes Teeth Sensitive?



In a recent survey of 250 clients who had teeth whitening in our office; 89% reported little or no sensitivity after 

tooth whitening, 9% reported some sensitivity, 2% of clients reported discomfort for the first 24 hours.


Inside every tooth are millions of microscopic "dentinal tubules" that extend from the nerve (pulp) inside the 

tooth to the outside surface of the tooth. There's fluid inside these tiny tubes, and when this fluid moves inside

the tubes, it causes sensitivity. 


Minerals from saliva normally plug up the open outer ends of the tubes, preventing fluid movement and most 

sensitivity. All bleaching gels tend to dissolve these "plugs" allowing the fluid in the tubes to move and cause 

sensitivity. 


Dental sensitivity is the most common issue surrounding teeth whitening-and it can happen to anyone, with 

almost any method. But, according to Dr. Rod Kurthy, DDS, recognized expert in the field of whitening 

science, "how severe the reaction is depends on each individual and three important factors: genetics, bleach 

stability and acidic reaction."



Genetics



For some people the reaction is minor, but for others the reaction can be very painful - and that's where the 

subject of genetics comes into play. It seems that everyone has a different reaction. Fair-haired and fair-skinned 

(you know who you are, you "burn" instead of "tan") tend to experience the highest degrees of sensitivity. 



Bleach Stability



Just think about how strong a whitening gel has to be to actually change the color of your teeth. It's no surprise 

then that manufacturing dental-grade bleach formulas for oral applications is a tricky science. And it's hard

to get it right; make them too powerful and they're hard to keep at peak strength throughout the blending, 

shipping and storage process. Make them too weak and they won't work at all. That's why the people who 

make whitening formulas aim for something in the middle - literally - the goal of most whitening gel scientists 

is to create a shelf-stable bleach with a completely neutral acid/alkaline ratio or pH.



Acid Reaction



The overall action of bleach on enamel, dentin and gums is the big daddy cause of most sensitive reactions; and 

the one most people are familiar with. Minor dental problems  (chips, cracks, decay) or daily living and also

consumption of acidic foods and beverages (such as some sodas, sour candies and abundance of fruit) can 

weaken your tooth enamel (or create small openings in enamel) to make it easier for acids to reach the inside

of the tooth and dissolve the little plugs at the end of your tubes. 


That's why good hygiene and a good diet make difference in keeping sensitivity at bay. Regular cleaning, 

flossing (plaque removal) and examination catch small issues as they occur - minimizing chance for damage to 

the inside of your teeth.



Realistic Expectations



Please be realistic on the results of your whitening treatment and understand the machines do NOT put white 

on your teeth. The light activates the solution that is applied to your teeth and then the whitening process begins 

removing the color that has been allowed to stain your teeth over years.
