FAQ: Using the DaVinci Teeth Whitening System
Q: Why Should I consider teeth whitening?
A: Your smile is the first thing that people see when they meet you - it's like your introduction to the world. Studies have shown that people with whiter teeth look younger, more attractive, healthier and happier (probably because they are always smiling!) With a brighter smile, you automatically have a competitive advantage in your career, especially if it involves face-to-face interaction.
Most importantly, there is a strong correlation between high self-esteem and a bright, confident smile. For many people, that energized boost in confidence can change their overall quality of life.
Q: How white will my teeth get?
A: With three 20-minute sessions, most patients see an improvement of 5-14 shades! Results vary depending on your starting shade, the composition of your teeth, and the number of sessions you choose. With just one session, the average client sees a 3-5 shade improvement!
Q: How long will the whitening last?
A: This varies from person to person and depends on your diet and lifestyle, but the effects usually last for one to three years with proper maintenance. Periodic touch-up treatments are recommended for customers who frequently consume products such as coffee, dark soda, tea, red wine, tomatoes sauce, or other staining products such as tobacco. Professional Home Maintenance Kits and an On-The-Go Whitening Pen are available to maintain your beautiful smile in between office visits.
Q: Is the DaVinci Teeth Whitening System safe?
A: Yes, DaVinci Teeth Whitening has been supplying products to Dentists and Beauty Professionals for 20+ years. Products are made in their USA laboratories and are FDA compliant. Scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the DaVinci Teeth Whitening Gels are safe and effective for cosmetic teeth whitening. The DaVinci Teeth Whitening Gel does not change or damage the structure of the teeth; it merely lifts and removes the stains, making your teeth brighter.

Q: How long does a whitening session take?
A: One whitening session takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Depending on the level of discoloration of your teeth, your desired results, and the composition of your teeth, you may choose 1-3 additional 20-minute sessions (very few clients need a 4th session). Start to finish your whitening session will take 15 – 60 minutes. It takes no longer than the time it would for you to have a haircut or massage - it is that simple!
Q: What is the difference between having my teeth whitened by your company and having my teeth whitened at my dentist's office?
A: We use the same technology used by Dentists and other teeth whitening providers giving you great results. The developers at DaVinci simplified the process so that you don't have to pay to see the Dentist for whitening - the DaVinci Certified Technician can administer the cosmetic whitening gel specially developed for use with the LED light saving you hundreds of dollars!

In addition to saving you money, your teeth whitening experience will be far more enjoyable than being at your dentist office! For our in-office teeth whitening, we offer amenities rarely found in Dental and spa settings. You will enjoy the privacy of your own private room with Netflix, movie-streaming, and more. And because every client is our most important client, we only book one appointment at a time, giving you undivided attention.
Plus, we can offer our full teeth whitening treatment in your home! We pack up our LED light, whitening gel, and everything else needed to produce the same results in the privacy and convenience of your own home.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: Most clients experience no sensitivity during or after the session. A very small percentage of clients may feel some sensitivity on the teeth or soft tissues, especially if they consume very cold or hot foods or drinks within two hours after the treatment. Therefore it is recommended that clients avoid consuming extremely hot or cold food or beverages for the first two hours following the treatment. Any sensitivity is usually gone within 24 hours. For clients that are prone to sensitivity, you have the option of a 5-10 minute Desensitization Prep Treatment immediately prior to the first session using the True Minerals Desensitizing Gel. Claire provides this service free of charge with the purchase of the gel.
Q: Will DaVinci Teeth Whitening work on crowns, fillings, veneers, and bridges (composite materials)?
A: DaVinci teeth whitening will remove staining from composite materials but will not whiten the composite materials beyond the original color of the material used. DaVinci teeth whitening works well if your natural teeth are darker than the composite materials' original color. Teeth whitening is a good option if you plan to replace the crown or filling after your whitening treatment. DaVinci Teeth Whitening will not damage or hurt the composite material.
Q: Is it possible to book an appointment outside the regular available booking times?
A: Yes. Another thing that makes us stand-out from our competitors - Flexibility. Most places operate 9-5, M-F, while you and everyone else is at work. Although cosmetic enhancements are important to you, your boss may not feel the same way...If you need to book at an off-time, or on super-short notice, call or email Claire and she'll get you in.
Q: Can I get my teeth whitened if I'm under 18?
A: Yes. As long as you have your adult teeth, you can have your teeth whitened. Because we use all-natural food-grade Hydrogen Peroxide, it is perfectly safe for everyone. As with all of our services, if you are 16 or under, we ask that a parent or legal guardian sign a consent form.
