Your smile’s appearance is often an indicator of health, wealth, and personal worth. However, when your smile has stains from everyday food and beverage consumption, it could portray the wrong message. Unfortunately, that could mean you miss out on the perfect career opportunity, or your social life may suffer. Therefore, our GLO Pro Dental Practice, Tenaglia Smiles, shares information about GLO teeth whitening so that you can flash a bright smile no matter the occasion.
What is the GLO teeth whitening system?
Guided Light Optics® (GLO) is an FDA-registered teeth whitening system developed by a top aesthetic dentist that uses the patented technologies of warming heat acceleration, blue LED light, and whitening gel to accelerate whitening results at home. Our Lansing cosmetic dentist who offers GLO explains that wear times are short with accelerated whitening results, causing decreased sensitivity risks. In addition, the process proves safe and effective in clinical studies while providing gentle yet dramatic results within five to seven days.
How does the GLO system work?
GLO offers an in-office and on-the-go professional teeth whitening treatment that combines a quality brightening agent with blue LED light science to expedite whitening results. If you choose our in-office GLO treatment, it takes only 32 minutes, which means brighter teeth on your lunch break.
Before any treatment or procedure, our cosmetic dentist in Okemos recommends brushing and flossing your teeth to remove food debris and bacteria for the best results. If using a take-home GLO Pro Whitening Kit, you apply the whitening gel to all tooth surfaces and place the soft mouthpiece in your mouth where it surrounds your teeth and permeates them with light. Then, using the controller or app on your Bluetooth-connected device, begin your cycle lasting about five to seven minutes depending on your brightening desires.
Will GLO cause sensitive gums or teeth?
Our East Lansing teeth whitening dentist explains that with GLO teeth whitening produces little to no teeth sensitivity.
Plus, enjoy the following benefits:
- Gentle yet effective, producing minimal tooth sensitivity in rare cases.
- The gel is thick enough to stay in place.
- Cruelty-free, vegan, and gluten-free.
- Clinically created to remain on your teeth and off your gums and surrounding soft tissue.
- Safe ingredients free from carbamide peroxide and alcohol.
- A vast majority of patients using GLO do not experience sensitivity during or after treatment.
Can patients with crowns, fillings, or veneers use GLO?
Some teeth whitening agents do not change the color of dental restorations. However, the GLO system can provide astonishing teeth whitening results, even when you have one of the following dental treatments:
GLO works with:
The GLO process can brighten most dental work along with the surrounding natural teeth to provide a seamless, beautiful, bright smile. However, our Okemos family dentist explains that patients undergoing orthodontic care with traditional braces should not use the GLO system until their braces are removed for the best results.
How long should GLO results last?
Most teeth whitening products fade over time requiring touch-up appointments, which takes time from your busy schedule. With GLO, the process is like getting your hair colored: it requires maintenance after the initial treatment. For example, after completing a full GLO whitening treatment to reach your desired shade, which is five to seven days, maintaining the brightness requires one whitening day per month, including three back-to-back applications. Then, after six months, another five to seven-day complete treatment can restore your bright smile once again. If you notice coloring or stains before your subsequent treatment, you can use the whitening gel by itself until you reach the desired shade between treatments.
