Jennifer Stachel Orthodontics’s own Jennifer Stachel, D.M.D. was featured in the December 2017 issue of Men’s Health for her expertise about laser teeth whitening. In an article titled “Turn Back Time with Tech: Defy Age with These Cutting-edge Non Surgical Treatments.”
In the article, she is quoted describing how at-home bleaching products may work, but take too long to see results. Most patients want faster, more consistent results than an over the counter teeth whitening kit can provide. Her GLO LED system is mentioned in the article.
How GLO Works
GLO is a professional grade teeth whitening system that uses LED light technology and patented warming heat to deliver whiter teeth in less time than some teeth whitening measures.
The procedure starts with the application of a thin layer of professional strength teeth whitening gel that is applied directly to the front of your top and bottom teeth. The dentist will place a mouthpiece in your mouth that is connected to a special device. The whole process takes around 30 minutes or so and delivers a bright, white smile the same day.
There is an at-home GLO system that you can use to complement professional treatments. The process is slightly different and doesn’t use the professional grade teeth whitening gel. However, the at-home system can be used between professional treatments at your dentist.
Importance of Whiter Teeth
Having whiter teeth is more than just vanity. Having a more confident smile means you’ll have more self confidence and feel better about how you look. This could help improve your mood and give you a more youthful appearance.
Whiter teeth you’re proud to show off can help you make a great first impression. If you’re going on a job interview, you’ll be more likely to get the job if you come across as friendly and confident. If you’re getting married, you’ll be happier to look back on photos that show off your beautiful smile.
Both men and women want to have whiter teeth, as it can make them appear younger and healthier. Whether you opt for laser teeth whitening or a cutting edge treatment such as the GLO system, you are making an investment in your smile and overall appearance.
