The GLO Professional treatment is simple and can be completed in six easy steps:

- Teeth are dried and the gingival barrier is placed to prevent sensitivity
- The whitening gel is applied and a micro brush is used to ensure even application
- The GLO mouthpiece is inserted to heat the whitening gel and you’ll be GLOing

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do the teeth whitening effects last?
The effects of the treatment typically last one year. Our patients usually come in for another treatment around that time. Certain lifestyle habits can impact the duration of the effects. You’ll want to follow a few tips to get the most out of your new white smile:
- Avoid tobacco use
- Limit food and beverages that tend to stain
- Use a straw
- Brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and rinse after meals
In addition to following the above-mentioned guidelines, you’ll want to visit our Waxahachie office biannually for professional cleanings so we can remove any plaque and tartar to keep your teeth white and looking their best.
Is in-office whitening better than at-home whitening?
Dental offices are allowed to administer whitening treatments that have a higher concentration of a bleaching agent called hydrogen peroxide. This provides results instantly– without having to wait weeks compared to store-bought whitening treatments. Our treatments are applied by trained professionals to avoid contact with your gums for maximum benefits while preventing sensitivity.
GLO Science products take advantage of instant whitening effects offered in-office, with continued whitening that you’ll experience with the at-home system. If you’re interested, contact our Waxahachie office by calling (972) 885-3335.
Will the GLO Whitening work on fillings, porcelain veneers, and dental implants?
Yes! GLO Brilliant Whitening will lift stains to brighten an artificial tooth surface to return them to their original shade. The whitening product won’t be able to change the original color of the surface. It’s best to discuss your desired shade with our dentist to determine if it will match your restorations.
If I have sensitive gums are there any precautions?
GLO products contain a lip and gum barrier that should be used prior to applying the whitening gel. This will protect these areas from becoming sensitive. It’s rare that patients experience sensitivity following a GLO Science Professional Treatment, however, any sensitivity can be managed with toothpaste designed for sensitivity and over-the-counter pain relievers.
