Commonly Asked Questions & Tips

Q: Why should I use Aspro Bright?

A: Aspro Bright has been an innovative leader for the past decade in over-the-counter teeth whiteners using a light. It is strong enough to compete with dental office teeth whiteners while still being affordable. The 18-month shelf life guarantees freshness and flexibility. It will work when you’re ready to use it. And if you’re prepping for a photo shoot, job interview, wedding, or first date, a quick treatment of Aspro Bright will make all the difference!

Q: Why don't over-the-counter systems offer a 25% concentration of whitener?

A: One reason is shelf life. Many of the whitening products take months to make it to the shelves and by offering a lower concentration of active ingredient they increase the shelf life to, in some cases, several years. It is common for a consumer to buy a product that is over a year old. Aspro Bright has an 18-month shelf life and guarantees freshness to the vendor so you know you are using the strongest and freshest teeth whitening system available today.
Another reason is how they apply the teeth whitening gel. Most systems are VERY crude in their design. They require messy amounts of gel to be placed in a tray and then squished into place only to ooze gel throughout the mouth and all over the gums and soft tissue. Even the expensive molded teeth trays made by a dentist can ooze undesired amounts of gel if the amount is too great or the customer bites down too hard on the apparatus. Most teeth whitener manufacturers keep their active ingredient down to a minimum (in some cases as little as 1.5%) so the potential for customer dissatisfaction due to sensitivity is reduced. The negative side to this is that most over the counter whitening systems rarely contain enough solution to meet expectations of today’s customer.

Q: How do I store my Aspro Bright kit?

A: Wash the mouthpiece in warm, soapy water and store it, along with the gel and light, in a cool dry place away from excessive heat. We don’t recommend it being left in a car or exposed to direct sunlight since that can impact its effectiveness

Q: Does Tooth Bleaching really work?

A: Yes. Almost all “Natural” teeth respond to the process. However, there are some individuals whose teeth just do not respond to any bleaching product. Research has not figured out exactly why, but there appears to be about a 2 to 3 percent non-success rate. This is thought to be due to a chemical/mineral structural difference in the teeth. Rest assured that if you or your customers fall in this 2-3% you can rely on Aspro Bright for a full refund if not satisfied.

Q: How many ways are there to lighten or bleach teeth?

A: There are several ways to lighten or bleach teeth. Here are three of the most popular: In-Dental-Office Procedure: Tooth bleaching using a high percentage of approximately 35% Hydrogen Peroxide. This is only done in the dental office environment. This procedure is also used in conjunction with heat or light to accelerate the whitening results. In-Home Process: Tooth bleaching using a percentage of approximately 10% to 12% carbamide peroxide. A patient is provided bleaching trays for both their upper and lower arches. They are then required to apply the bleaching gel to the trays and wear them for a prescribed duration and frequency.
Combination In-Office/In-Home Procedure: Some Dental Professionals use a combination of both In-Office and In-Home Procedure. This is done to basically use the “Power Bleaching” (name given to the In-Office Procedure) to show the patient a rapid change in tooth shade. The dentist then uses the In-Home Process to do the main whitening process. It is important to note that both procedures offered by a dentist, and that yield the most optimum results, use carbamide peroxide as the active bleaching agent.

Q: How does Aspro Bright work?

A: The active ingredients in Aspro Bright’s gel effectively penetrate the teeth to break down discolored molecules and remove stains, leaving you with a brighter smile.

Q: What about "Laser Whitening"?

A: “Laser” or “high intensity light” bleaching consists of using a very strong whitening solution (usually 25% to 35% whitening agent) and “activating” the solution with a laser or other high intensity light. Because this solution is so concentrated this procedure must be undertaken in the dental office. This procedure can take up to three dental office visits or more, and may cost over $1,000. As with any professional dental whitening system, follow up treatments will be needed to insure your teeth stay vibrant and white.

Q: What are the active Ingredients in Aspro Bright?

A: The active ingredients in Aspro Bright are Denatured Alcohol and Hydrogen Peroxide.

Q: How strong is Aspro Bright?

A: Aspro Bright has the strongest formula available in over-the-counter kits. It utilizes a 25% concentration of whitening agents, and employs special polymers to dry and adhere to teeth during whitening. The no-rinse formula allows it to continue to whiten even after the mouthpiece is removed.

Q: How long will it take to whiten my teeth?

A: Everyone’s teeth whiten at their own rate. Some stains disappear quickly while others require longer processing. Teeth that are more yellow/brown whiten faster than teeth that are blue/gray. The key is to match your teeth to the whites of your eyes for your most natural smile.

Q: Is Aspro Bright safe for me to use?

A: Teeth whitening is a safe and comfortable method for achieving a brighter smile. Processing time may vary depending on the level of staining and whiteness desired. Keep in mind that crowns, fillings, bridges, and veneers will not whiten. And, although it will not whiten them, it will not damage them either.

Q: How long will my teeth stay white?

A: Teeth whitening results are very stable and you can expect to keep your stunning smile long after treatment. There are a few factors, however, that may impact the length of your results, like certain foods and beverages, some medications, age, genetics, or smoking. A simple Aspro Bright touch-up treatment is all that’s needed to restore your smile.

Q: Will Aspro Bright cause tooth sensitivity?

A: Aspro Bright is the first to utilize a system that doesn’t submerge your teeth (virtually over exposing the tooth’s surface) in a tray. Aspro Bright utilizes a polymer-based system that adheres to where you apply it and starts whitening immediately. That means you can be specific about which part of the tooth receives treatment, and avoid more sensitive areas like soft tissue (gums) or the biting edge, this is where your top teeth meet your bottom teeth and the surface is constantly ground down making it the most susceptible to sensitivity. If sensitivity does occur, it is often temporary and will go away once you’ve completed the whitening process. The formula is strong and effective, but suitable for the most sensitive teeth and backed by our money-back guarantee.

Q: Can I whiten a crown or filling?

A: No. Only natural tooth structure can be whitened, and any crowns or fillings will not respond to the whitening gel. If you have a crown or filling that is easily visible, you may want to consult your dentist for other options for brightening your smile.

Q: Who should not use teeth whitening?

A: If you are pregnant, have gum disease, worn enamel, cavities, or exposed roots, you shouldn’t use teeth whiteners.

Whitening Tips

  1. Only natural teeth will lighten.
  2. Some stains respond better than others. Stains caused by tea, coffee, smoking, certain foods, and age stains respond more quickly.
  3. If soft tissue (gums) or tooth sensitivity occur, cease using the product. These can be transient side effects and will typically subside within 1 – 3 days. If they do not, it may signify an unrelated problem and you should consult your dentist. It is important to put the mouthpiece in first, then apply the gel so as not to apply gel directly to ANY soft tissue.
  4. Individuals with gingivitis, bleeding gums, or cavity-laden teeth should not use this product and should consult a dentist to ensure that optimum dental and oral heath is maintained.
  5. Keep Aspro Bright and all medicines away from children.
  6. Keep out of direct sunlight and store in a cool dry place.
  7. Do not wear the mouthpiece while sleeping.

FDA - Rules, Guidance, Regulations and Classifications

What is an ultraviolet activator?

It is a device that produces ultraviolet light intended to polymerize or take off resinous dental pit and fissure sealants or restorative material by transmission of light through a rod.
The scope of this guidance includes devices that use light sources such as quarts-tungsten-halogen lamps, light emitting diodes (LED’s), and xenon-plasma arcs, as well as laser energy sources.
RULE: The FDA guidance does not include heat or light sources intended exclusively for tooth bleaching procedures. These are classified under 2CFR 872.6475, Heat Source for Bleaching Teeth, product code EEG. These devices are exempt from the premarket notification procedures in subpart E of part 807 of this chapter, subject to the limitations of 872.9. (This action being considered cosmetic.)

What is FDA's authority over cosmetics?

It is very important to understand that Congress passes the laws and govern the United States. To put those laws into effect, Congress authorizes certain government agencies, including the FDA to create and enforce the rules and regulations, but only those as authorized under the law. A change in FDA’s statutory authority over cosmetics would require a full congressional vote. (It would take an act of Congress.)
