When beginning a new whitening regimen, what Supersmile products do you recommend?
When beginning any whitening routine, first check with a dental professional to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy. To whiten natural teeth or restorations, start by using our Professional Whitening System in conjunction with our Whitening Pre-Rinse and Activating Rods. Once you have achieved your optimal level of whiteness, maintain your teeth with Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste.
What is Calprox®?
Calprox® is Supersmile’s proprietary form of Calcium Peroxide. Calprox® is a safe, clear, bleaching ingredient that breaks down the protein pellicle (which is the sticky film that bacteria and stains adhere to) on your teeth. By dissolving the protein pellicle, you remove the plaque, stains, and bacteria that adhere to it, and your teeth stay cleaner for longer.
Is Calprox® safe on dental work?
Calprox® will not harm any dental work. It restores bonding, caps, veneers, and dentures to their original whiteness. It maintains and enhances the vibrancy of professionally bleached teeth and removes coffee, tea, tobacco, red-wine, and other stains without harsh abrasives or the risk of sensitivity. Our whitening products can be used every day without any harm or detriment to the enamel.
What is the recommended time used for brushing?
We recommend that you brush your teeth for at least 2 minutes in the morning and 2 minutes at night right before going to bed. It is extremely important to brush at night, because, during the day, we swallow up to 20,000 times (as we drink and talk, we contribute to the quantity of saliva our mouths produce). At night, however, we only swallow about 20 times, allowing plaque and bacteria to form uninterrupted. If plaque remains on your teeth for a few hours, it turns bacterial, contributing to “morning breath.”
What is the advantage of using Supersmile products as opposed to other whitening products?
The Advanced Whitening System is the #1 whitening system recommended by cosmetic dentists worldwide. Our products do not contain harsh abrasives that can lead to sensitivity or silica, which scratches the enamel of your teeth, leaving it porous. Supersmile also contains our own proprietary ingredient, Calprox®, which eliminates the protein pellicle – that sticky film to which bacteria, plaque, and stains adhere. Our Professional Whitening Toothpaste contains Fluoride, as well as Calcium, Magnesium, and Phosphates, so it can be used daily in place of your regular oral care routine. Supersmile requires no extra steps, messy trays, or ill-fitting strips. Just brush & whiten!
What is Xylitol?
Xylitol is a healthful sugar alternative that is beneficial to dental health. Xylitol helps reduce dental cavities, plaque, and tooth decay. Studies have shown that Xylitol is actually cariostatic; in other words, it reduces new tooth decay by inhibiting plaque and suppressing decay-causing bacteria. It is 100% natural, Kosher, gluten-free, colorant-free, preservative-free, additive-free, sugar-free, sucralose-free, as well as yeast and dairy-free.
Can I use mouth rinse after I brush?
You can rinse your mouth out after you brush with water. We recommend that if you are using a deep-colored oral rinse that you rinse with it before you brush. Using a red or orange colored rinse will only stain your teeth if used after you brush. Use a lightly-colored rinse after brushing, such as the Supersmile Oral Rinse, or a clear oral rinse like the Supersmile Whitening Pre-Rinse can be used after brushing.
Can I use an electronic toothbrush?
You can definitely use an electronic toothbrush when using our products; as long as the toothpaste is applied to a dry brush head the formula will be effective. The Supersmile LS 45° Sonic pulse™ Toothbrush is an ideal instrument to add to your oral care regimen.
How long will it take to see results?
Results vary for each individual. Some people may see results in three to five days; for some it will take a little longer. This process is a gradual one. Please remember that there are a lot of factors that go into how long the process takes, such as age, medication, eating habits, dental work, etc. It all depends on the stains, how long they have been there and how deeply rooted they are in the enamel. Positive results are usually apparent in about 4 weeks.
