AcquaBrite Deep Bleaching™ is the only recognized whitening technique that is so effective that it can often whiten even tetracycline-stained teeth in a short time. AcquaBrite whitening products can achieve these amazing results with little or no sensitivity at all.
The difference with Deep Bleaching is the results. Follow our Deep Bleaching guidelines, and your teeth will whiten beyond any other bleaching technique. Deep Bleaching works by revitalizing the tooth's own ability to absorb oxygen. Oxygen from AcquaBrite bleaching products is absorbed into the tooth and breaks down large dark stain molecules to small white particles. The results are amazing.
Questions & Answers
What does deep bleaching™ involve?
This technique takes a little more time and a little more effort, but will result in a whiteness beyond what any other recognized bleaching technique can create. Results are absolutely permanent with easy periodic maintenance at home.
Will they look too white?
No, natural teeth rarely look too white. Sometimes very white crowns can look artificial because they are made of porcelain.
Will my crowns, veneers or fillings whiten too?
No. If you have any of these on your front teeth, you may need to replace some of these after bleaching.
Is there pain or discomfort?
Occasionally patients experience some mild transient sensitivity; however your dentist will give you easy-to-use AcquaSeal™ desensitizing swabs to take home.
How long does it last?
Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance - wearing the trays for 1 night every 2-3 months.
Is it safe?
Bleaching techniques and products have been used for many years without reports of any damage to teeth or gums. Bleaching is considered entirely safe.
