GLO Science Whitening: What is it?

Posted in Teeth Whitening

GLO Science Whitening is a convenient way to whiten your teeth at home while also benefitting from patented light technology that is used in dental offices.

Each GLO mouthpiece holds the whitening gel directly against your tooth surfaces. A small handheld activator and cord is tucked into your pocket and controls the light exposure of the GLO whitening tray. Unlike other types of at-home light accelerated whitening kits, GLO does not require you to hold a separate light against your teeth; it is simply built into the tray itself.

Most GLO whitening patients enjoy results that are 5 to 8 times brighter than other types of at home whitening kits. GLO Science Whitening gel is completely free of carbamide peroxide, allowing you to avoid unwanted tooth sensitivity. The alcohol-free formula also prevents common side effects like dry mouth.

Use your GLO Science Whitening kit once a day and within just a few days you will begin to see dramatic whitening results. Lift stains like tea, coffee, and tobacco, which darken your enamel and make teeth look older than they actually are. The kit is even safe enough to use on existing restorations like porcelain crowns, dental veneers and tooth colored fillings. Although it will not change the color of the ceramic material, it is safe and effective enough to lift superficial stains from these permanent restorations.

Are you a candidate for GLO Science Whitening? Your dentist will screen for cavities or gum infections that might interfere with your treatment, otherwise most other people can start whitening right away. Schedule your visit with your cosmetic dentist to find out more!
