Frequently Asked Questions

Teeth Whitening Questions

Can anyone whiten their teeth?

Anyone can whiten their teeth if they are over the age of 12 years old and are not pregnant or lactating. If an individual has diabetes or is in poor overall health, including poor oral health, it is strongly recommended they seek dental or medical professional approval prior to whitening their teeth.

Will teeth whitening whiten my caps, crowns, veneers, composites or dental implants?

No. The miBrite whitening system solely whitens natural teeth and will not harm any cosmetic dentistry or man-made material.

Are there any side effects with miBrite’s whitening formula?

The only side effect is a whiter smile! The miBrite system has been created with ingredients to reduce sensitivity issues sometimes associated with teeth whitening. As a preventative measure, we recommend using nanowhite toothpaste as your regular toothpaste.

Our products are gluten-free, vegan, and contain no parabens or phthalates.

How long will my whitening results last?

No matter what teeth whitening products you choose, your lifestyle and porosity of your teeth will determine how long your whitening will last. After using a miBrite teeth whitening kit, teeth whitening results can last several weeks.

If you drink coffee, tea, red wine, eat foods that have intense color, or smoke, your whitening results will be reduced. To combat losing results, we recommend regularly maintaining your teeth with the miBrite collection of teeth whitening products.

Does teeth whitening work for everyone?

About 3% percent of people do not respond to teeth whitening. There are a number of factors contributing to this including the porosity and density of the enamel.

What is the best first step when whitening my teeth?

A professional dental cleaning within 7 days prior to beginning a whitening treatment is highly recommended for the very best results. A professional dental cleaning will remove the pellicle layer and allow for the teeth whitening gel to penetrate more effectively, producing better and faster whitening results!

Are your products cruelty-free or vegan?

Yes! All of our products are both cruelty-free and vegan. We do not test any of our products on animals.

The recommended wear time along with other important recommendations and instructions are included with the miBrite ilustra Teeth Whitening Home Kit.

What happens if I salivate during my ilustra teeth whitening home kit treatment?

If you salivate during your miBrite ilustra Teeth Whitening Home Kit treatment, we recommend you swiftly remove your mouth tray, spit, and quickly place the mouth tray back into your mouth to complete your teeth whitening treatment. Do not remove or add any more than the recommended amount of teeth whitening gel during this process.

One miBrite ilustra whitening treatment a day is all you need. If more than the recommended whitening treatments are performed per day, tooth and gum discomfort may occur.

I have bright white spots on my teeth. What are they from?

Bright white spots on teeth could stem from a number of factors including, but not limited to, genetics or poor hygiene.

Will the ilustra teeth whitening home kit reduce the appearance of white spots on teeth?

Yes. Using the miBrite ilustra Teeth Whitening Home Kit will gradually and greatly reduce the appearance of white spots on teeth by creating a uniformed brighter and whiter smile.

What happens if the whitening gel comes in contact with gums or soft tissue?

Whitening gel coming in contact with gums or soft tissue may cause temporary discomfort.Gums and soft tissue may turn temporarily a lighter shade and will quickly reverse themselves within 20 minutes.

The miBrite ilustra syringes have indicator lines so you know how much whitening gel to place in your mouth tray for each treatment. Instructions come with each purchase in order to avoid any confusion.

Can I purchase just the whitening gel if I already have a mouth tray from my dentist?

Yes. You can purchase just the ilustra refill whitening gel if you already have a mouth tray from your dentist. Mouth trays we recommend using should have been made specifically for teeth whitening purposes. We do not recommend using Invisalign trays or any other tray not made specifically for teeth whitening products.
