Smile-A-Nu provides teeth-whitening services to erase telltale signs of tar-chewing contests and catching paintballs in your mouth. After comparing the current shade of your teeth with a shade-guide comparison chart, a Smile-A-Nu technician will assist you in applying hydrogen peroxide gel directly onto each mouth bone while ensuring minimal spilloff onto gums. Peroxide concentrations vary between treatments. In the traditional treatment, a gel is applied to a tray that’s placed in the mouth and worn under an LED light for 30 minutes, while in the advanced treatment, customers don a cheek retractor, then apply gel directly to teeth themselves before a 15-minute LED light shines brightness into dull incisors.
