Q: How white will my teeth get?

A: Quickwhite’s whitening formula has shown it can whiten teeth by up to 10 shades. Quickwhite can whiten your teeth dramatically. Results will vary due to factors such as tooth density, tooth porosity, and lifestyle habits. Most people will whiten their teeth substantially with one treatment.

Q: Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?

A: If you can answer, “yes” to these questions, you’re an excellent candidate for whiter teeth.

Q: Why is QuickWhite better than other common whitening systems?

A: Quickwhite uses ETC technology (Energy Transfer Controllers), that controls the peroxide temperature all the time the gel is on the teeth during the bleaching treatment.

Q: How long should my whitening last?

A: Your Quickwhite smile can last up to 3 years. However, people’s habits and lifestyles vary and the use of tobacco, regular drinking of red wine, coffee, or tea will affect how long your results will last.

Frequent visits to the dentist for professional cleaning will help maintain the results. You may wish to use the QuickWhite treatment frequently, and keep a whiter smile!

Q: What can I do about it?

A: Simple brushing and whitening tooth pastes are just not enough as the staining is deep and built up over many years. Excessive brushing, apart from being uncomfortable can actually damage the teeth as toothpaste has a slightly abrasive effect.

The most effective treatment for whitening teeth is either an in-surgery procedure using a Hydrogen Peroxide whitening gel, performed by a professional, results can then be further enhanced by the use of a home maintenance kit.

You can also use the home whitening using Carbamide Peroxide, placing the whitening gel into formed trays and placed onto your teeth. Different percentage strengths are available for various staining and duration.
