Glo is the acronym for "Guided Light Optics." Glo Whitening, one of the most advanced teeth whitening systems available, combines a unique, patented, light-activated technology that combines warming heat and blue LED light to speed up the whitening process for dramatic results in a shorter time. Besides their efficacy, they do not cause any teeth sensitivity issues as they do not damage the teeth's enamel.
When is Glo teeth whitening used?
Teeth can get discolored or stained due to several of the following reasons:
- Drinking coffee, wine, or dark-colored liquids, highly-citrus food
- Not brushing teeth regularly
- Not visiting the dentist regularly
- Certain medications, including antihistamines, antipsychotics, and high blood pressure medications
- Aging, genetics
- Lifestyle and diet habits
- Illness and medical conditions
Teeth whitening is used on teeth that have been stained or discolored to give them a bright appearance.
What does Glo teeth whitening involve?
The Glo teeth whitening procedure is a simple procedure and typically takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. It begins with a consultation with your dentist to go over your dental health. Your dentist will then evaluate your mouth and your teeth and gums and decide if teeth whitening is right for you.
Your dentist will then prepare the whitening solution, which will be applied to your teeth using custom-fit trays that are unique to you. This gel will be activated with an LED mouthpiece. Depending on the level of whitening you choose, your dentist will either apply the whitening solution till the desired results are obtained. If you have sensitive teeth, your dentist will formulate a specialized whitening solution to reduce tooth sensitivity and discomfort.
As per several clinical trials, Glo teeth whitening treatment can improve dental shade up to six shades lighter.
