How do I get started with your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Service?
An impression of your teeth will be made by you at home with our easy-to-use system. You mail these back to us in the postage paid envelope we provide. Our lab technicians then make your DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays from the impressions of your teeth and return these to you, usually within 24 hours. You then apply our Hi-Intensity™ Teeth Whitening Gel inside the DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays and place them over your teeth. You may wear the DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays from 30 minutes to 4 hours per day. Most people see dramatic results after only a few hours of bleaching time.
Are there any side effects to using your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process?
Some people experience temporary tooth sensitivity during the Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process which always is relieved upon the discontinuation or completion of the Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process. There are no other significant side effects.
Is it safe to use your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process at home?
Yes. In fact, many dentists consider this whitening process the safest cosmetic procedure available today. It is the exact same process used in 95% of all dental offices. The process safely bleaches your teeth to lighten discoloration caused by food, coffee, tobacco, aging and other sources. It will not harm the enamel, dentin or pulp of the tooth.
Is your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process safe?
YES! Studies show from the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD Impact, April 1998, p.23) Several studies, during the past five years, have proven bleaching to be safe and effective. A small percentage of people may experience some tooth sensitivity and gum irritation, which disappears once you stop using the product or by decreasing the amount of time you bleach your teeth.
Why is the cost for your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process so much less than going to the dentist office?
You are not paying the cost of $200 to $300 an hour in the dentist chair. You are buying Lab Direct™, taking your impressions yourself and sending them back to us at the lab instead of paying a dentist to do it for you. It's simple - At Brighter Image™ Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening is all that we do and buying direct from the lab saves you $100's!
Are your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Systems the same thing dentists sell me for $500 or more?
Our service is the exact same Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Procedure, Hi-Intensity™ Competitive Strength Teeth Whitening Gel & DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays used by cosmetic dentists in offices across the country. Your DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays are made in a lab right next to the teeth whitening trays dentists are charging $500 plus dollars for. You can also expect the same professional results or better.
Is your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process as effective as laser?
Our Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process is More Effective Than Laser!
Using a laser with a teeth whitening gel, this is an in-office teeth whitening system. The translucent teeth whitening gel is applied to the teeth and a laser light is used to activate the crystals to absorb the energy from the light and penetrate the teeth enamel to increase the whitening effect on the teeth.
The length of time in the cosmetic dentist's chair depends on the degree of discoloration you have.
Many dentists are moving away from using lasers for teeth whitening since they find the heat source is much too difficult to control, and new studies show the result differences to be similar, or even inferior when compared with the Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process.
Costs can vary depending upon the area you live in and the type of teeth whitening treatment you undergo. Laser teeth whitening typically runs from $500 to over $1000 for the complete procedure.
Generally speaking, the price of teeth whitening increases with the number of in-office treatments required by the patient. Dental insurance does not typically cover the cost of any teeth whitening procedure as it is considered a cosmetic procedure.
How can you sell the same teeth whitening process for so much less than my doctor?
It's pretty simple - volume, low overhead, and a focus on Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening
The average dentist usually sees only a few teeth whitening customers every day. The typical dentist usually has to save up orders for a few days or even a couple of weeks in order to get any quantity discounts from a dental lab. That's probably why you have waited for custom fitted teeth whitening trays in the past. Not because the custom fitted teeth whitening trays take a long time to process, but because the dentists are waiting to combine some orders and get a lower price. Brighter Image™'s Lab processes all our handmade DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Whitening Trays every day. We don't wait around to process your DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays. We have our dental lab working around the clock.
It would take more than 500 dentists offices to sell as many teeth whitening systems as Brighter Image™ Lab to make enough money to sell our Lab Direct Teeth Whitening System at the same price we do...Rent, payroll, and equipment maintenance isn't cheap and someone has to pay for it. Until now, that someone was you.
Focus on Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening:
We are a Professional Teeth Whitening Company. We don't sell cheap Do-It-Yourself Kits or Boil-and-Bite kits or anything less than only the finest most professional teeth whitening service. We are focused on having the highest quality teeth whitening system possible. Our goal is to provide you with the fastest, easiest, most convenient way to have your Teeth Professionally Whitened - by phone, mail, fax or the Internet. Lab Direct™, No dentist visit.
How long does the Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process take?
The thin, soft plastic trays provide sufficient comfort to allow teeth whitening while you sleep. Our sticky Hi-Intensity™ Competitive Strength Teeth Whitening Gel formula sticks to the DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Tray and firmly holds it against your teeth to whiten. The formula is gentle enough to wear overnight. You can use the DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Tray for 1 to 3 hours during the day or at night while you sleep. You should continue the Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process for a complete and full curing which generally takes 12 days. However you should see up to 7 shades whiter after only 1 day. The Hi-Intensity™ Competitive Strength Teeth Whitening Gel really only works for up to 3 hours therefore sleeping in your trays will not cause over whitening. Do not eat or drink while wearing your DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays.
Who may benefit from your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process?
Almost everyone will have noticeable results. Our Lab Direct Teeth Whitening Process will not whiten crowns, fillings, or porcelain veneers past their original color, nor will it whiten the dark areas left by gum recession. Our Lab Direct Teeth Whitening Process will whiten stains left by food and beverage consumption (red wine, coffee, tea), smoking, medication (minocycline and tetracycline), and natural aging.
What is full cure teeth whitening?
A full curing is when the teeth are whitened past the surface of the tooth. By doing a full curing of the tooth we whiten into the pulp of the of the tooth which usually makes the whitening brighter and tends to last much longer than just surface whitening that generally lasts only a few months.
What is competitive teeth whitening?
Competitive Teeth Whitening is the same type of teeth whitening that is required for top models, pageant contestant, public speakers. It's for clients who really want to get the whitest results possible. At Brighter Image™, all we do is competitive teeth whitening.
Why are we selling our Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening System direct?
We've seen for years cosmetic dentists who charge as much as $800 dollars (some even more) for our Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening service. All the dentist would do is have his assistant take the impressions of your teeth (same thing you can easily do yourself with our system thanks to new technology that make it truly very simple) then he has the assistant send your impressions to a dental lab like ours. We do all the work! We would make the DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays of your teeth, not the dentist. Then we would send your DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Trays back to the dentist who gives them to you. The dentist made all the money for really doing nothing. We feel that going Lab Direct™ to the client is a better way to grow. We really enjoy helping people from all over the world improve their image with a brighter, whiter smile. All the magic of our Lab Direct Teeth Whitening™ service is in making the DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays and the Hi-Intensity™ Competitive Strength Teeth Whitening Gel. We build your DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays and you apply the Hi-Intensity™ Teeth Whitening Gel ...so why do you need a dentist for Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening? You don't...Now you can have a $1,000,000 smile for less than $200!
Why is your Lab Direct™ Teeth Whitening Process better than others?
Simply put, other processes do not work effectively. Teeth whitening systems found in mass retail markets do not use Carbamide Peroxide, the exact ingredient used in professional dental offices. Some over the counter teeth whitening trays are not moldable to your teeth and do not hold the teeth whitening gel in the proper position. Many over the counter teeth whitening gels are not thick enough to stay in place and will leak out of the teeth whitening tray. Most over the counter teeth whitening gels typically have less effective active ingredients or a lower concentration of active ingredients.
What is the difference between the boil-n-bite teeth whitening mouthpieces and the DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays?
Although both trays are safe, the precision DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays are more precise and more comfortable to wear. These are the exact mouthpieces that a dentist provides. They help you save Hi-Intensity™ Teeth Whitening Gel and are better for people who may have sensitivities to teeth whitening gels on their gums. Also, DURABRITE™ Custom Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays are much easier for you to create since there is no boiling water involved in the formation process.
