The sapphire whitening system is made by Den-Mat- they are the same makers as Lumineers. This system uses a very powerful sapphire Plasma Arc light along with a professional grade teeth whitening gel. The sapphire bleaching system is one of the fastest and most effective professional solution on the market. It's completely safe since the bleaching gel is thick and stays stable at the "teeth areas" of the trays. Thus it does not drip over the gums.
The Sapphire unit filters out the infrared emissions created by the plasma arc light so that it does not create a heating effect on the teeth being treated.
The teeth whitening procedure takes about 60 minutes to complete.
The 35% H2O2 gel is first applied to your teeth. The sapphire light activates the gel and propels the stain removal process.
The procedure your dentist follows when performing Sapphire whitening system treatments does not vary greatly from general steps for the typical professional teeth whitening process.
Yes, Sapphire gives an at-home kit that has custom fitted trays. Depending on the condition of your teeth, the at-home kit may take from a few days to two months to give your teeth luster and brightness. The trays are pliable and tabbed.
The bleaching gel is thick and stays stable at the 'teeth areas' of the trays. Thus, it does not drip over to the gums. there is also a desensitizing agent to reduce tooth sensitivity after whitening.
Currently, the Sapphire procedure can only be done through a licensed dental office.
