1 What is Cold-Light Teeth Whitening?
It’s a technology which harnesses the power of light to safely whiten teeth. The Natural WhiteSpa Teeth Whitening System features the Natural Whitening Accelerator. The Natural WhiteSpa Whitening Accelerator’s high-intensity cold-light activates the specially formulated whitening gel. The 30-40 minute procedure oxidizes the teeth pigmentation through to the dentin layer, restoring it to a beautiful, natural white.
2 Why is Natural WhiteSpa Teeth Whitening So Special?
By using its superior light filtration techniques, Natural WhiteSpa’s technology allows it to operate at a far lower temperature than similar products. It removes both heat and harmful UV rays from the process. Heat and UV are the components of light which irritate the nerves in the teeth and cause the pain and discomfort associated with some teeth whitening processes.
3 How Effective is it?
Natural WhiteSpa’s 40 minute procedure is very effective for teeth that have been stained by smoking or stain-causing food and drinks, such as coffee, tea and curry. It also whitens teeth discolored by medications, such as tetracycline, or speckled by fluoride. When used together with the Beyond Whitening Gel, a specially formulated whitening compound containing among other ingredients hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and 20 nanometer silicon dioxide (SiO2), the result is a shiny, white smile. Natural WhiteSpa’s process results in teeth which score from 5 to 14 points whiter on the teeth shade scale! Comparative testing has shown that Natural WhiteSpa’s single treatment offers results which are more the 30% better than those that can be achieved by home whitening systems, requiring weeks of messy, time consuming uncomfortable sessions. Individual results will depend on how discolored the teeth in question were originally. However the end result will always be whiter, more shiny teeth.
4 Do I need an appointment?
Yes. It’s best to make an appointment.
5 Is the Natural WhiteSpa treatment for everyone?
The Natural WhiteSpa treatment delivers phenomenal results to people with teeth stained by smoking or by foods and beverages like coffee and tea. The treatment also whitens teeth stained by tetracycline, fluoride. It evens works on teeth with hereditary discoloration. However pregnant women, children under the age of 16, and patients with periodontal disease are discouraged from undergoing this procedure. How white could my teeth get? Tests show that, after the treatment, teeth score from 5 to 14 points higher on the teeth shade scale. Individual results will depend on how discolored the teeth were originally. However, the end result will be white, shiny teeth. How long will the whitening last? This varies from person to person and depends on your diet, but the effects should usually last for at least two years.
6 Is it safe?
Yes, scientific studies have shown that using hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in the gel, to whiten teeth is effective and safe. The dental community has used it to whiten teeth for decades. Cold light technology is completely safe. The combined treatment does not change or damage the structure of teeth; it merely makes them appear whiter and brighter.
7 How long does treatment take?
In about 40 minutes, teeth discoloration that has built up over the years will magically disappear. It takes no longer than the time it would for you to have a haircut, a manicure, or a cup of coffee – it is that simple!

What is the difference between Natural WhiteSpa and teeth whitening performed in the dental office?

Natural WhiteSpa’s procedures have been simplified so that trained aesthetic professionals can easily and safely perform the whitening procedure that is the best available anywhere. Will it whiten my existing crowns or veneers? The Natural WhiteSpa whitening treatment cannot change the color of porcelain crowns or veneers.

9 Will it hurt?
Very few of our customers experience pain or sensitivity during or after the treatment. A very small percentage of patients may feel a minor ache in the first twelve hours following the procedure. Taking an over-the-counter pain killer can help remove any discomfort. If there is any teeth sensitivity, avoid very cold or very hot liquids or foods for the first 24 hours after treatment.
