How does it work?

In short, a whitening gel is self applied to your smile teeth (the teeth that are visible when you smile) which is then activated by a cold blue light. Three 20min sessions of whitening gel with intense blue cold light will result in your new beautiful bright smile.

The machine:
The BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select system uses real power whitening technology. The foundation of our technology is the use of a powerful halogen light source. Clinical trials have determined that halogen light sources produce significantly superior whitening results than both LED and plasma arc lights, making BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select the most powerful cosmetic teeth whitening system currently available.

The technology:
BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select contains an advanced filtration system designed to remove all harmful heat and UV light. Light from the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select Whitening Accelerator is filtered through over 12,000 optical fibers and 30 layers of coated optical glass before accelerating the whitening process. With this system in place, BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select delivers the most intense, tailored beam of blue light of any cosmetic system on the market without the risk of UV exposure and the hypersensitivity associated with other whitening systems.

The whitening gel:
Further to that, our gentle, enamel-sale 16% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is specially formulated to produce optimal whitening results in the shortest amount of time, while minimizing sensitivity and leaving the teeth with a glossy shine following the treatment.  Other treatments use much stronger gel, anything up to 35% which can cause severe pain and discomfort.  Whilst their treatments times may be shorter, we offer very safe and comfortable services.

The science bit:
During the 60-minute BEYOND™ WhiteSpa Select treatment, the combination of a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel and intense, halogen light source oxides rapidly the organic discolorations found on the surface and inside the teeth, rendering those stains neutral in colour and resulting in a brighter appearance. At the same time, our proprietary gel formula gently polishes the surface of teeth. The result is a white, shiny smile with years of stains from food, drinks, and cigarettes erased after one, hour-long treatment.

Is it safe?

Yes, scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select Whitening Gel are effective and safe for cosmetic tooth whitening. The dental community has used these ingredients in performing teeth whitening for years. The BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select Whitening Gel does not change or damage the structure of the teeth; it merely makes them appear white and shiny.

BEYOND™ products have been covered in many clinical trials and product reviews around the world over the years. The BEYOND™ Whitening Accelerator has been proven through numerous clinical studies to be both safe and effective. Studies have included efficacy rates, enamel microhardness, post-treatment hypersensitivity, and effect on tooth pulp. In addition to clinical studies, many BEYOND™ products, including the BEYOND™ Whitening Accelerator have been tested and reviewed by dental publications, universities, and dental researchers. Such reviews have focused on product safety, efficacy, and sensitivity. The BEYOND™ Whitening Accelerator or other BEYOND™ products can be seen in product reviews from leading dental publications nearly every month around the world. Such publications include Dental Tribune International, Dentisty (UK), Asia Pacific Dental Notice, The Dental Advisor (U.S.), America Latina Noticias Dentales, Irish Dentist, Private Dentistry (UK), and Dental Products Report (U.S.). Most recently, the BEYOND™ Whitening Accelerator received a 4 ½ of 5 star review from The Dental Advisor, a leading U.S. independent dental products review body.

Is it painful?

No, not at all.  We use a very gentle whitening gel in three 20min sessions and thereby ensuring client safety and comfort.  It is very uncommon to experience any discomfort, however in rare cases some clients may experience slight discomfort. This will quickly pass.  It is also recommended that clients avoid consuming extremely hot or cold food or beverages for the first 24 hours following the treatment.

Does it damage my teeth? I’ve heard that my teeth can go brittle?

Absolutely not.  The process does not damage your teeth or enamel in any way. Scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select Whitening Gel are effective and safe for cosmetic tooth whitening. The dental community has used these ingredients in performing teeth whitening for years. The BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select Whitening Gel does not change or damage the structure of the teeth; it merely makes them appear white and shiny.

Do many people whiten their teeth? Why should I whiten my teeth?

Yes, more than you would imagine. A bright, sparkling smile can make a very big difference to a person's confidence and self esteem. Studies have shown that people with whiter teeth smile more readily and tend to make more eye contact whilst engaged in conversation. People with whiter teeth also do not revert to putting their hand over their mouth when speaking! Typically, people will not immediately note that your teeth have been whitened, but they will think to themselves that you are looking very healthy, without putting their finger down to why this is the case!

What is the treatment process, how long does it take?

The BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select treatment consists of three, 20 minute self applications of whitening gel and light. It is usually recommended that you have these three sessions done in a single one-hour session so that you can walk away from the treatment with a dramatically whiter smile. However, if you don’t have enough time to do one hour all at once, or would prefer to split up the treatment for other reasons, talk to your aesthetician about your preference for this.  Allow 1h15min for treatment time as we need to discuss individual treatment plans.

Whilst undergoing the whitening process, you can just just lie back and relax in our comfy treatment chair, sleep, listen to some music or the radio.

How white will my teeth go?

After undergoing whitening with the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select System, teeth shades can brighten about 6 shades, with an average improvement of eight shades on the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select Whitening Shade Guide. Although individual results will depend on how discoloured the teeth were originally, the end result will be white, shiny teeth.

I’ve seen some Hollywood celebs with extremely white teeth? I’m not sure if I want my teeth to go that white?

Many Hollywood celebs have veneers which give off an extreme, almost eye-blinding white smile.  Please do not worry, teeth can only go as white as they were when you were a child. Individual results will depend on how discoloured the teeth were originally, the end result will be white, shiny teeth.

What causes tooth discolouration?

Teeth discoloration happens to all of us. Teeth can be stained by smoking or by substances such as coffee, tea and especially red wine. Teeth stained by Tetracycline, speckled by fluoride, or hereditary discoloration can also be successfully whitened.

Who should not undergo this treatment?

The BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select treatment is contraindicated for clients who are pregnant or lactating.

The treatment is also contraindicated for children under the age of 16.

Additionally, any clients with known allergies to hydrogen peroxide or glycols should not undergo the treatment. Allergic reactions to the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select treatment are rare, however if the client was previously unaware of his or her allergy and has had a reaction to the treatment (usually evidenced by blistering along the gum line and/or swelling of the lips and gums), the client should contact his or her general practitioner immediately for treatment.

What if I have caps, veneers or crowns?

As with all cosmetic teeth whitening treatments, this treatment is only effective on natural teeth. If your dental work is visible when you smile, you should discuss your appropriate recourse for matching these items with your surrounding enamel with your dental professional. Please also note that the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select treatment will not damage any existing dental work.

Is it a dental procedure?

No.  We are not dentists and do not purport to be.  We are professionally trained in assisting clients through the whitening process.  What this means is that we do not come into contact with the clients oral or perioral area, we simply instruct the client in a very easy step-by-step manner through the whitening process.  We will instruct the client in self applying the whitening gel to the teeth and positioning the light in the correct way.  This is a very easy process and completely safe and trouble free.

What about other systems like gel trays and lights?

The advantage of whitening your teeth with the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select system is that you can achieve the same whitening results that would take you multiple treatments and many days (even weeks!) to achieve at home with other non-light accelerated, over-the-counter whitening products. The concept is the same: using a hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel to remove stains from your teeth – but the advantage of the BEYOND™ WhiteSpa® Select system is that this process has been accelerated to produce the same results in only one hour. No more messy gel trays that you have to sleep with!
There are also several systems in the cosmetic teeth whitening market that use ultraviolet (UV) light as the source of their light acceleration technology. Not only are UV lights not as effective as halogen lights, the client’s exposure to UV light during the whitening treatment should be minimized, not maximized through direct, unfiltered exposure.

Our treatment is also a lot cheaper!

Why are your prices so low?

We believe that teeth whitening should be available to everyone.  We do not carry the normal operating costs associated with a Dentist office and therefore can pass these savings onto our clients. We are also not tied in with onerous franchise agreements. Please rest assured that our products are of the highest safety standards and in no way does our price reflect an inferior product.
