FAQS

You probably have a lot of questions to ask before going ahead and whitening your teeth with ShinaDent. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that may help you make your decision:

What is the teeth whitening process?

Teeth Whitening is actually a bleaching process that lightens discolorations of tooth enamel. Our system uses LED light technology to whiten teeth.

How it removes stains?

ShinaDent whitening system will remove most tooth stains with a gentle action that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel (carbamide peroxide), is broken down, oxygen acts upon the stained organic deposits, which oxidizes them into a white color. This process makes the overall tooth color closer to its natural unstained color.

What is the treatment procedure?

An impression of your teeth will be made by you at home with our easy-to-use instant thermoforming moldable mouth trays. You will then apply our whitening gel inside the thermoforming trays and place the tray over your teeth. Again, since our system is Dental Strength, you can treat your teeth only 15-30 minutes per day. In most cases, you will see results after the first treatment.

Why is your product better than other whiteners?

ShinaDent is quick, safe and convenient.

What causes tooth discoloration?

There are several causes of tooth discoloration. The most common include consumption of foods that stain, tea, coffee, wine, sodas and smoking. Teeth get more and more stained naturally as we live our lives.

Who can benefit from tooth whitening?

Nearly everyone can benefit from ShinaDent whitening. However, there are cases where treatment may not be effective. Tooth lightening is ideal for patients who have healthy, unrestored teeth and would like a whiter, brighter smile. Discolorations and artificial dental work are not effective when whitening teeth.

How long does the bleaching process take?

The whitening process takes 15-20 minutes.

How much does it cost per treatment?

ShinaDent treatments can cost anywhere from $150-199 per session.
