Saliva will pool up in your mouth during treatment. Try not to swallow saliva if possible, just wait to spit out at the end of treatment. If swallowed saliva, there is no harm. If you sense gagging, then pause treatment and restart after you spit out saliva. If you gums or teeth experiences discomfort, then stop the whitening immediately. Normal discomfort will subside within 24 hours. If the pain persists past 3 days after you’ve completely stopped treatment, then see a dentist.

What is the difference between carbamide and hydrogen peroxides?
Carbamide peroxide is approximately 1/3 of the strength of hydrogen peroxide. LumiSmile® White whitening gel is a carbamide formulation.
How does peroxide whiten teeth?
When peroxide breaks down (either on its own or accelerated with a light) it forms oxygen bubbles that get down into the microscopic pores of the tooth to clean out stains.
Is it necessary to use a light with the LumiSmile® White whitening gel?
The LumiSmile White whitening gel may be used with or without a light. However, we recommend the LED light whitening tray to accelerate and activate the whitening process.
Will tetracycline stains whiten with LumiSmile® White?
Intrinsic stains (stains inside the tooth, often caused by medications) are more difficult to whiten than extrinsic stains (surface stains, generally caused by smoking, coffee, red wine, etc.). However, good whitening results can be achieved with either system. Lengthier whitening sessions, higher concentrations, or multiple treatments will help to achieve better results. Each patient is different and results will vary. If whitening does not produce the desired results, cosmetic crowns or veneers may be better options.
How white will the teeth get and how long will the reuslt last?
Each patient is different. There is not a way to determine before the procedure how your teeth will respond to this whitening kit. There is no guarantee that your teeth will be brightened with this kit. Most of our patient reported their teeth were brightened 2-3 shades and their results lasts up to 2-4 weeks. Results are temporary. For more permanent result, ceramics such as crowns or veneers are the only solutions.
What percentages are available with LumiSmile® White whitening gels?
LumiSmile® White are available in 16%, 22%, and 32% Carbamide peroxide formulations. You'll be getting the strongest concentration 32% through us that you can't get anywhere else.
Is sensitivity an issue with LumiSmile® White whitening gels?
LumiSmile® White whitening gel is specially formulated to reduce sensitivity, but the level of sensitivity will vary on each and everyone’s own tolerance.
How long (how many treatments) should each whitening syringe last?
The number of treatments per syringe varies on how much whitening gel you place on your teeth, how many teeth you want to whiten, and the size of your teeth. We see on average each whitening syringe can last anywhere between 3-5 treatments depending on how many teeth you want to whitened.
