There are many different whitening systems available on the market these days, but do any of them actually deliver the same caliber as what you would get from going to the dentist, or even come close? We tried out the Glo system and we were pleased enough with the results that we wanted to pass along the info of how you can try it out for yourself.
He worked for years to find a way to bring the professional technology of “doctor’s office” teeth whitening into the hands of his patients. The greatest challenge had been creating a device that was both safe for the layperson and affordable.
At $275 (a fraction of the in-office cost) for a system that you own, can continue to use, and can even share, and a device that utilizes automatic technology to turn itself on and off, and one that works with a lower level of peroxide for the same results as in-office, GLO is absolutely dummy-proof and comparatively inexpensive.
You do have to use it at the beginning for 5 days in 32 minute session each day (eight minute applications, four times in a row), but it’s a small time commitment for big results.
HOW IT WORKS: Likes its in-office counterpart, GLO Brilliant uses both heat and light to whiten teeth. But even better than the “professional” version, GLO has a closed system mouthpiece which makes it much more efficient, preventing whitening oxygens from escaping the surface of the teeth and accelerating and stabilizing the whitening results. And because the GLO mouthpiece builds Guided Light Optics™ technology directly into its design, with a molded flexible circuit activating light and heat, there’s no need to use an extreme level of hydrogen peroxide as is done in the dental chair – the GLO whitening gel is formulated with only 6% Hydrogen Peroxide, that is both alcohol and carbamide peroxide free, to remain gentle, safe, yet entirely effective. Hence, less sensitivity (even with repeated use) and no concern for having in-office technology in the home. Overall, GLO technology speeds up the whitening process for faster, better results, without tooth sensitivity, whitening the upper and lower teeth at the same time. Clinical studies show results of up to five shades lighter, an improvement in the shade of teeth in three to five days, and no sensitivity. To maintain these results, Levine recommends using one eight minute application per week, or four eight minute applications per month.
WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY: “I have never seen such a happy patient population before…A number of subjects indicated that they would love to buy and use this system if it comes out to market. All subjects were ready to go even longer treatments if they could do so. Some subjects were so interested and asked about more information about bleaching and stated that they would love to repeat the bleaching treatment whenever necessary,” says Dr. Hatice Hasturk, DDS, Ph.D.
GLO Brilliant™ Personal Teeth Whitening Device is a finalist in the 2012 Edison Awards for Innovation and Innovators validating Dr. Levine’s pioneering efforts in the Teeth Whitening Category, establishing Glo Brilliant as the benchmark for innovation in the at-home teeth whitening category.
