FAQs

 Frequently Asked Questions

 

  1. WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER WHITENING MY TEETH?
  2. Studies have shown that not only do people with whiter teeth look younger and more attractive, they also possess a higher level of confidence and self-esteem.


  3. WHAT CAUSES TOOTH DISCOLORATION & YELLOWING?
  4. Frequent consumption of coffee, tea, cola, red wine and other dark foods and beverages as well as smoking stain teeth over time.  Childhood use of antibiotics can cause permanent “tetracycline” staining.   Excessive use of fluoride may also result in noticeable white spots (“fluorodosis”).


  5. HOW DOES THE kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit WORK?
  6. A special whitening gel, Photo-White, utilizes a unique 30% carbamide peroxide formula, which, during treatment coats the teeth.  Saliva and natural body heat begin to break the peroxide formula down into its basic elements, water and oxygen.  The KoolBlu LED light accelerates this natural process reducing treatment time. The released oxygen molecules enter the enamel pores and bleach the stains that are lodged there, thus whitening the teeth.


  7. WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT USING THE kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit?
  8. Although results vary for each individual, experience and testing have shown that most people (95%) experience noticeably whiter teeth (3-5 shades) after a single 20 minute treatment and very dramatic results after applying all six treatments included with the kit.


  9. IS USING THE kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit SIMILAR TO DENTAL OFFICE WHITENING?
  10. Absolutely. In fact, dental office teeth whitening treatments use the same ingredients (peroxide-based whiteners) and blue light technology as the kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit.  Results are essentially the same but at much less cost.  And, no dental office visit! 


  11. IS THIS NEW TREATMENT TIME CONSUMING?
  12. This is the good news! Each treatment takes only 20 minutes.  For maximum results, it is recommended to perform two back-to-back 20-minute treatments a day for three days.  This is much shorter and faster than any other self-applied kit treatment available today. 


  13. IS USING THE kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit SAFE FOR MY TEETH?
  14. Yes. The new Photo-White whitening gel has been specially formulated by our chemist to achieve the proper, safe ph level to protect the enamel during whitening.  Only teeth whitening products that are properly ph balanced are considered “safe” to the enamel.


  15. HOW DOES THE kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit DIFFER FROM OTHER WHITENING KITS?
  16. It is superior in at least three significant ways – Easier to use, quicker whitening time, better results (See questions 9,10,& 11 for more details).


  17. HOW IS THE kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit EASIER TO USE?
  18. The kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit is easier to use than traditional whitening kits due to the revolutionary Soft-Bite silicon impression tray included with each kit.  Other kits utilize an archaic, inconvenient, and time-consuming “boil and bite” tray where the tray must first be softened in boiling water before it can be used!  Our state-of-the-art Soft-Bite tray is ready to use as is.  No preparation necessary. 


  19. WHY DOES THE kissMe! TEETH WHITENING KIT TAKE LESS TIME THAN OTHER KITS?
  20. The new kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit has been developed to accommodate today’s fast-paced lifestyle.  First, a stronger whitening gel is used - our Photo-White gel contains 30% carbamide peroxide - which works faster than kits that contain a much weaker whitener.  Second, the handy KoolBlu portable whitening light accelerates the gel’s whitening action. Finally, the gel contains a photo-initiator called Photo-Boost which enhances the effect of the blue whitening light adding speed to the whitening action.  All three of these factors combine to shorten teeth whitening time by at least 50%.  No other home whitening product contains all three time-reducing elements.


  21. WHY ARE BETTER RESULTS EXPERIENCED WITH THE kissMe! WHITENING KIT?
  22. For precisely the same reasons the treatment takes less time – a stronger whitening gel (30% carbamide peroxide), the KoolBlu accelerator light, and the photo-initiator additive, Photo-Boost.  This triple-action method closely resembles dental office whitening which typically uses a stronger whitening gel along with the same blue light technology yielding maximum whitening results and shorter treatment time. 


  23. HOW LONG DO THE TREATMENTS TAKE? 
  24. Each treatment can be completed in 20 minutes or less.  Other whitening kits and methods require 45 minutes to an hour and longer to achieve comparable results. 


  25. HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE MAXIMUM RESULTS?
  26. Maximum results with the kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit are achieved after only six 20-minute treatments whereas other products usually require many more time-consuming applications.


  27. HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
  28. This varies from person to person.  Much depends on your eating/drinking habits and genetics. But, on average, after correctly applying all six treatments in your kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit, most people can expect their teeth to stay pearly white for many months, especially when maintained regularly with the convenient Pocket Whiteneravailable from this website.


  29. WHERE ARE YOUR WHITENING PRODUCTS MANUFACTURED?
  30. Our special whitening gel, Photo-White and state-of-the-art food-grade silicon Soft-Bite mouth trays are both manufactured in the U.S.  It is very difficult to establish the quality and effectiveness of these materials if imported.  All our products comply with FDA regulations.


  31. CAN FILLINGS, CROWNS AND OTHER ARTIFICIAL MATERIALS BE WHITENED?
  32. The kissMe! Teeth Whitening Kit is effective in removing stains from artificial tooth replacements and/or dental work such as, caps, crowns, veneers, bridges, bonding, etc.  However, these materials will not whiten beyond their original shade.


  33. IS TEETH WHITENING FOR EVERYONE?
  34. The effect of teeth whitening on pregnant or lactating women and children under the age of 14 has not been fully established.  These groups should therefore avoid using any teeth whitening product unless otherwise directed by their physician or dentist.  Individuals who have a known sensitivity or allergy to hydrogen peroxide should consult their physician or dentist prior to using any teeth whitening product.  In addition, those with any of the following conditions should not use any teeth whitening product without first consulting their physician or dentist: health problems, periodontal disease, decayed teeth, exposed roots, colitis or jaw problems, those who wear braces or have recently had oral surgery.


  35. ARE THERE ANY SIDE AFFECTS FROM USING TEETH WHITENING PRODUCTS?
  36. Some people have experienced temporary tooth sensitivity during teeth whitening treatments that use a peroxide-based whitener. Others have reported discomfort in the gums or in loose fillings. In extremely rare cases, mild swelling of the lips and/or oral blistering may occur. These conditions are not serious and usually disappear within 24-48 hours.
