Beyond® White Spa Teeth Whitening Questions and Answers

Q: Is it for everyone?
A: In fact, Beyond WhiteSpa gives magical results to anyone who wants to whiten their teeth. This includes people with teeth that have been stained by smoking or by substances like coffee or tea. It also whitens teeth stained by tetracycline, specked by fluoride or hereditary discolouration. Pregnant woman or clients under 16 years of age should not receive the whitening treatment.

Q: How white could my teeth get?
A: Tests show that, after whitening with the beyond spa system, teeth can move 5 to 14 shades on the WhiteSpa whitening shade guide. The results depend on how white the teeth were originally, but the end result will be white, shiny teeth.

Q: How long will the whitening last?
A: This varies from person to person and depends on your diet, but the effects should usually last for about 2 years. Periodic touch-up treatments can be taken for clients that frequently have coffee or other staining food or drinks or those that use tobacco products.

Q: Is it safe?
A: Yes. Scientific c articles have shown that the active ingredients in WhiteSpa whitening gel are effective and safe for cosmetic tooth whitening. The dental community has used these ingredients for tooth whitening for years.
It does not change or damage the structure of the teeth: it merely makes them appear whiter and brighter.

Q: How long does the treatment take?
A: In a little over an hour, discolouration that has built up over years will magically disappear. It takes no longer than the time it would for you to have a haircut or facial – it’s that simple.

Q: What’s the difference between WhiteSpa and other methods of whitening?
A: Beyond WhiteSpa is power whitening and is not comparable to other methods of whitening. This technique whitens your teeth right away and has no side effects. The results are far better than over the counter home whitening products.

Q: Will it whiten my existing crowns or veneers?
A: The whitening treatment in general cannot change the colour of porcelain crowns veneers or fillings.

Q: Will it hurt?
A: Most patients experience no pain or sensitivity after the treatment. A very small percentage of patients may feel some minor tooth sensitivity, especially if having very cold or hot foods within a few hours following the treatment. Avoid hot or cold drinks for the first 24 hours if there is any sensitivity.

Q: What is the difference between Beyond WhiteSpa and whitening in the dental office?
A: The Beyond WhiteSpa system is the same technology used in dental offices for power whitening and the results are comparable. The WhiteSpa whitening gel is designed for safe treatment by aesthetic professionals.
