Nevertheless, it is up to your LUMIWHITE dentist to determine your eligibility for LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening.

LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening can safely and legally only be provided under the supervision of a dentist.

If your LUMIWHITE dentist decides you are not dentally fit and require remedial dental treatment, they will advise you on what steps to take in order to become dentally fit. It is imperative that anyone wanting to use LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening must be dentally fit prior to commencing treatment.

Your LUMIWHITE dentist will give you the option of undertaking remedial dental treatment at their dental practice. The cost of any additional treatment (including interest-free payment plans) is up to the LUMIWHITE dentist and LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening holds no responsibility for the cost of any additional treatment required.

In general, LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening products is not suitable for:

  • Anyone under 18 years of age.
  • Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Patients who are not dentally fit – i.e. have caries, extensive and/or deficient restorations, periodontal problems or other problems which may cause hypersensitivity during whitening.
  • Patients who want to whiten their crowns, veneers, fillings or dentures
  • Patients who have unrealistic expectations.
  • Patients who are not willing to carry out the treatment as directed by their LUMIWHITE dentist.

LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening is a professional-grade teeth whitening system developed by UK dentists. Non-professional alternatives, such as whitening toothpastes and blue light whitening, contain zero (or very small amounts of) Hydrogen Peroxide – which is the main active whitening agent used by LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening. Hydrogen Peroxide safely and effectively whitens teeth by breaking down the large organic molecules that cause staining.

LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening contains up to 6% Hydrogen Peroxide which is the maximum, legal and safest concentration. It is illegal for anyone, including dentists, to offer or provide teeth whitening at a concentration greater than 6% Hydrogen Peroxide.

At LUMIWHITE, we believe it is important to provide you with DAY and NIGHT whitening options so you can choose the type of whitening that best suits your lifestyle.

With LUMIWHITE BY DAY you can achieve optimum results with minimum wear time (as little as 1½ hours!) whilst LUMIWHITE BY NIGHT is designed to be worn overnight for maximum comfort and convenience.

Both DAY and NIGHT options offer an option for sensitive teeth.

 

Cosmetic products, such as LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening, are subject to EU wide safety regulations. These EU requirements are implemented in the UK by the Cosmetic Products Enforcement Regulations 2013 – also known as the EU Cosmetics Regulation. These regulations forbid the use of teeth whitening products which contain more than 6% Hydrogen Peroxide or for any associated products, such as Carbamide Peroxide, which release greater than 6% Hydrogen Peroxide to be used for cosmetic purposes.

Our LUMIWHITE BY DAY range includes a 6% Hydrogen Peroxide option as well as a 4% Hydrogen Peroxide option.

Moreover, our LUMIWHITE BY NIGHT range includes a 16% Carbamide Peroxide option (which releases approximately 5.76% Hydrogen Peroxide) and a 10% Carbamide Peroxide option (which releases approximately 3.6% Hydrogen Peroxide).

Rest assured, LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening products are safe to use under the supervision of a dentist. They have been passed by an independent safety assessor as safe to use and all products are compliant with EU and UK regulations.

LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening has been designed to ensure the whitening results are long-lasting.

We completely understand how important it is for all our patients to maintain the level of whitening that has already been achieved.

Most patients tend to top-up on their teeth whitening at least one night every 2 months in order to maintain a B1 tooth shade. However, your LUMIWHITE dentist will be able to recommend an appropriate top-up whitening regime with you to help you keep your teeth the way you like them.

Rest assured, we are confident you will be very happy with the whitening results achieved using LUMIWHITE Teeth Whitening products.
