Fortunately, getting that bright smile you've always dreamed of is now safer and more accessible than ever before thanks to cutting edge technology and incredible advances with whitening procedures. However, there are still many of those who would like a whiter smiles but are hesitant for numerous reasons. Whether it’s for fear of pain, tooth damage, or the unknown, whitening can be an intimidating process for those who are unfamiliar with it. Rest assured, your smile is safe with us at Celebrity Smiles of Utah.

Myth #1: Teeth whitening isn’t safe-

Given the overwhelming amount of fake info to sort through on the Internet, it’s smart to be skeptical, especially when it comes to advertised products. That’s why it’s important to know the facts behind the products. With Celebrity Smiles of Utah, you can be assured to know that we use all natural and organic chemicals when whitening your teeth. Our products are organic, and have enamel building compounds. Our products are enamel and dental work safe, and will not cause harsh sensitivity. Our products are so gentle, that they are safe for children!

Myth #2: Teeth whitening hurts-

Whitening is notorious for causing pain, but our whitening products are specially designed to prevent sensitivity. Our closed-system mouthpiece featuring gentle warming heat allows whitening molecules to penetrate the teeth quickly and produce the best results.

Myth #3: Teeth whitening damages enamel-

The active ingredient in many whitening products is hydrogen peroxide. When activated, this ingredient simply breaks down into its component molecules of oxygen and water. When used as directed, research studies have concluded that peroxide-containing whitening products are completely safe for tooth enamel.

Myth #4: It’s not good for you to put chemicals in your mouth-

It’s true that the chemicals used in some oral care products can be harmful. That’s why weonly use ingredients that are proven to be completely safe. Hydrogen peroxide, for example, has antimicrobial properties which help protect against bad bacteria in the mouth. The whitening gels also contain potassium nitrate and sodium fluoride, which act to reduce sensitivity pain and prevent cavities and tooth decay, respectively.
