Aqua Brite: More Whitening Less Sensitivity Zoom Alternative

Brite Smile and the Zoom Teeth Whitening system gained rapid notoriety when Discus Dental (manufacturers of whitening products and other professional products) were involved with the Extreme Makeover Television Program produced by ABC-TV.

In terms of cosmetic dentistry, Da vinci porcelain veneers and in-office Zoom teeth brightening became the cosmetic treatments of choice that could create the "makeover experience."

With literally millions of people eventually undergoing treatments for veneer placements and smile whitening (normally required when using only a few veneers) it didn't take long for statistical data to accumulate, demonstrating different levels of success and suitability of treatments for large populations.

Tooth and gum sensitivity symptoms subsequent to whitening treatments, for many patients, became widespread. In response to this growing complaint, Zoom modified their gel formulations that provided a better consumer experience.

Controlling Sensitivity

Strict adherence to the in-office treatment protocol assures for nearly everyone a treatment that is free of pain and sensitivity symptoms. Discus Dental continues to modify their product line with great success.

Nonetheless, both dentists and consumers alike, determined that Zoom is not for everybody. Individual differences, unique medical - dental histories, medication histories and other idiopathic criteria can influence the treatment experience and cosmetic outcome.

Gaining More Control: Whiter Shades - No Sensitivity

Dr. Koeppel, in response to the desires of his patients, acquired an additional teeth whitening product line that offers perhaps the strongest formulations in the industry along with a protocol that includes a special pre-treatment for controlling nearly all potentials for sensitivity reactions.

The Aqua Brite product line uses a special compound to pre-treat the sensitivity potentials of each and every patient. The whitening "treatment" is therefore customized for each patient.

Different combinations of whitening formulations produce a wide variety of whitening results that far exceeds the whitening capabilities of all other known whitening products.

Unique Chemistry

Formulation and manufacture of the whitening compounds occurs in a refrigerated environment. These special formulations are kept under refrigeration right up to the time of application, which maintains the potency of the product. No other whitening product shares this patented whitening chemistry. The shelf life of the Aqua Brite whitening products is short compared to other popular whitening brands, thereby assuring a relatively fresh product.

Tetracycline Whitening Success

Dr. Koeppel has developed a treatment program that whitens a classic antibiotic medication induced stain that has been historically known to be unbleachable. Tetracycline stains, for many patients, can now be whitened significantly... safely and without the usual sensitivity issues.
