Until very recently, only dentists could perform teeth whitening treatments. Today, all teeth whitening systems (except those containing fluoride) are considered cosmetic products, meaning that teeth whitening is now considered a cosmetic, non-invasive dental procedure approved by the FDA and Health Canada.
At The Studio by Nicolle Paige, doing it right means using a proper whitening agent (that is, a good hydrogen peroxide gel) and an appropriate whitening accelerator. The most practical accelerator is an LED lamp emitting a cold blue light with a wavelength of 465 nanometers. This wavelength of light is ideal for activating the hydrogen peroxide and accelerating the whitening process.
A hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth. A cold blue light is placed directly in front of the client’s exposed teeth and runs for 15 minutes per treatment (for a maximum of 45 minutes).
Since we DO NOT use trays, we are able to provide custom results for our clients and apply the whitening formula to each tooth individually, enabling us to achieve the best results with little to no sensitivity for our clients.
