San Francisco and Marin CA
Our teeth naturally stain from the foods and drinks we consume but practicing good oral hygiene like brushing twice a day and flossing daily, paired with regular dental cleanings helps reduce stains and buildup. However, even with a strict oral hygiene regimen, stains still occur. A yellow or dingy smile can make you feel self-conscious and put off the wrong impression when meeting others. Therefore, if you’d like to learn more about brightening your smile, you’ve come to the right place. Today on our newest blog, find out how to get your smile GLOing in 2024.
GLO teeth whitening system
At Glen Park Dental, we offer the GLO teeth whitening system, an approved and registered FDA treatment suitable for adults that desire whiter teeth. GLO uses patented technology of warm heat acceleration of an LED blue light and whitening gel to provide safe and effective whitening results without leaving your home. The at-home whitening device is Bluetooth connected so that you can be hands free while whitening your teeth and doing other tasks around your home, like preparing dinner, cleaning, or relaxing while reading a book. Each GLO whitening treatment session takes about eight minutes and you can achieve results in as little as three to five days.
Will GLO teeth whitening make my teeth sensitive?
One of the most frequently reported benefits of GLO is that it rarely, if ever, results in sensitivity because of its special formulation containing potassium nitrate, which acts like a protective barrier and desensitization agent. Therefore, desensitization treatments are not necessary in most cases. However, if your lips and gums are prone to sensitivity, apply GLO Lip Care to these areas prior to whitening.
GLO teeth whitening system is also available as an in-office whitening treatment. This option is available in two strengths. We can help you decide which strength is best for your smile needs. The in-office whitening treatment takes about an hour, although only one session is needed. It also includes trays and bleach to take home with you if you prefer to touch-up your results later.
Money back guarantee
Perhaps one of the best benefits of GLO teeth whitening is that it is backed by a 30-day guarantee. The brand is so sure that you will love your results that if you are dissatisfied for any reason, you can get a full refund. Plus, your GLO device is covered by a one-year limited warranty. We are also confident that you will love your results!
What not to do after whitening your teeth
GLO teeth whitening gel takes about 24-72 hours to fully penetrate the tooth enamel and break down stains. Therefore, during this period, avoid drinking dark colored beverages like coffee, tea, and wine, acidic foods and beverages like sodas, and citrus fruits, pineapple, and grapes, as well as dark colored foods like tomato sauce, turmeric, soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, curry, and hot sauce. We also recommend avoiding sugar-loaded foods, and tobacco usage. Additionally, be sure to stick to a strict oral hygiene regiment by brushing and flossing daily and remember to see the dentist twice a year for cleanings and checkups to keep your smile GLOing all year long.
