Santa Barbara Smile Whitening - Dr. Hurtado Dentistry - BriteSmile Teeth Whitening
Lets face it one of the first things you notice about people is their smile. When you meet someone with a bright, natural smile, it catches your attention.
However, over time, the natural aging process and your lifestyle (smoking or drinking coffee, tea, or wine) can stain your teeth.
To get your smile back to looking its best, Dr Hurtado Dentistry can provide you with the Whitening system that works best for you.
The BriteSmile Light
The patented BriteSmile light is not a laser. It's a specially designed lamp that shines a gentle, blue light on your teeth. This light has been clinically proven safe for tooth enamel as well as skin, gums, and other soft tissues. It emits virtually no heat and no harmful UV (ultraviolet) light. Our lamps are uniquely shaped to illuminate and whiten all "smile line" teeth (top and bottom) at the same time, ensuring natural and uniform results.
The BriteSmile Whitening Gel
The BriteSmile's proprietary gel contains only 15% peroxide and is buffered at a near-neutral pH value that is compatible with tooth enamel. The gel also contains other ingredients such as glycerin and highly purified water to prevent tooth dehydration and to further ensure safety. The gel is specifically engineered to respond to the blue wavelengths of our light system. When the light illuminates the gel, it activates and safely accelerates the whitening process, achieving amazing results in just over one hour.
