Luster™ Pro Light Teeth Whitening System

How far away should I hold the light from my teeth?

You should hold the light about .5 inches to 1 inch from your teeth. The light should not touch your teeth.

How many applications should I do?

Everyone’s teeth whiten at different rates, so do as many treatments as fit your desired whitening level. We suggest 5-10 treatments at first to see if you have achieved the results you’re looking for. If you wish to further whiten your teeth, continue with additional treatments immediately, or resume the treatment over the next few days. Review the treatment schedule options in the instructional booklet to select from options that allow you to complete your whitening in as little as 1 hour or as many as 7 days.

Do I have to use the rinse in between every application?

The rinse is necessary between cycles to remove the old layer of Super Whitener Gel. Because the Gel becomes inactive after using the light, you’ll want to remove it to re-apply a new layer of active Gel for the next cycle.

How do I control excess saliva?

If you do experience increased salivary flow, we recommend placing cotton balls beneath your tongue before each application of the Super Whitener Gel.

How often can I use Luster™ Pro Light?

After doing a full whitening treatment (10-20 applications), we recommend doing a touch-up treatment of 5 applications every 2-3 months. Full treatments should be performed every 12 months to maintain your white smile.

How quickly will I see results?

Everybody’s teeth whiten at different rates. We recommend at least 10 applications to notice a shade improvement. For the best results, we recommend a full 20 applications.

Do I have to do all the applications at one time?

No. Luster™ Pro Light is designed to be convenient. You can do a few applications at a time to fit into your busy schedule. But, the more applications you do in a row, the more quickly you will see results.

Is Luster™ Pro Light safe on my teeth and dental work?

Luster™ Pro Light is clinically proven to be enamel safe, and it results in no tooth sensitivity. While Luster™ Pro Light is completely safe for dental restorations like crowns, caps and veneers, it will only whiten natural teeth. Your dental work will not whiten with Luster™ Pro Light.

How much Super Whitener Gel do I use, and is it safe to re-dip?

You should liberally apply the Gel to your teeth to ensure full coverage, and re-dip the brush after covering each tooth. Because the Gel contains anti-microbial ingredients, it will kill germs on the brush. However, we do not recommend sharing the Gel or brush with another person.

Can I re-use my kit?

Yes! Luster™ Pro Light is designed to be re-usable. Just be sure to replace the batteries after 20 applications to maintain your Whitening Light’s power. And if you need extra Super Whitener Gel, Accelerator Mouth Rinse, or bulbs, visit LusterPremiumWhite.com to order more.

How long will the different components of Luster last?

The Accelerator Mouth Rinse, Super Whitener Gel and batteries are designed to last for at least 20 applications. The whitening bulbs will last for about 5 hours of use.

Where can I get extra Super Whitener Gel, Accelerator Mouth Rinse, or bulbs for the Whitening Light?

Luster’s Distinctly White Dual Action Whitening System serves as a refill kit for Luster™ Pro Light, and contains the Super Whitener Gel and Accelerator Mouthrinse. This can be found in many large US and Canadian retailers. You may also visit www.LusterPremiumWhite.com to purchase replacement parts for Luster™ Pro Light or explore other Luster products.

Distinctly White

How does Distinctly White work?

Distinctly White requires rinsing your mouth with the Accelerator Mouth Rinse, and then applying the Super Whitener Gel. The rinse ensures that your mouth if completely clean and ready for the gel. By applying the Super Whitener Gel, you’re applying active peroxide on your teeth, the ingredient required to whiten teeth. By completing this process twice a day for three days, you’ll see a whiter, brighter smile.

How is Distinctly White different from Luster™ Pro Light?

Distinctly White includes the Accelerator Mouth Rinse and the Super Whitener Gel, while Luster™ Pro Light includes these products plus the Activating Whitening Light. Because it does not have the Activating Whitening Light, Distinctly White requires a bit more time to see significant whitening results. Nevertheless, it only takes one weekend of completing the whitening cycles to see beautifully whiter teeth.

Is Distinctly White safe on my teeth and dental work?

Distinctly White is clinically proven to be enamel safe, and it results in no tooth sensitivity. While Distinctly White is completely safe for dental restorations like crowns, caps and veneers, it will only whiten natural teeth. Your dental work will not whiten with Distinctly White.

How quickly will I see results?

With Distinctly White you can expect to see visible whitening in as little as 2 days, with full results in as little as 3 days.

How much Super Whitener Gel do I use, and is it safe to re-dip?

You should liberally apply the Gel to your teeth to ensure full coverage, and re-dip the brush after covering each tooth. Because the Gel contains anti-microbial ingredients, it will kill germs on the brush. However, we do not recommend sharing the Gel or brush with another person.

How long should I wait between daily regimens?

We recommend doing one treatment in the morning, and one treatment in the evening. Be sure to wait at least 10 minutes before eating or drinking.

How long will the different components of Distinctly White last?

One bottle of the Accelerator Mouth Rinse and Super Whitener Gel should last approximately 16 applications.

Power White Deep Stain Eraser Toothpaste

Why is Power White toothpaste more expensive than other whitening toothpastes?

Power White is carefully formulated to not only significantly whiten your teeth but also to keep your teeth and mouth clean and healthy. Unlike many whitening toothpastes on the market, Power White uses active peroxide—the only ingredient known to significantly whiten teeth—to ensure that our consumers see whitening results. It also includes a gentle cleansing formula that keeps breath fresh and helps fight the bacteria that causes gum disease and gingivitis.  While these ingredients are a bit more expensive, we feel it’s paramount to include them in our products to meet our promise of beautifully whiter, healthier smiles.

Does Power White whiten teeth better than other whitening toothpastes?

Yes. Clinical studies have shown that Power White whitens teeth 2 times more than the leading brand. Power White contains active peroxide, the only known safe tooth whitening ingredient. Many other whitening toothpastes have abrasive ingredients that clean your teeth but will not actually whiten your teeth.

Why does it look like my tube isn't completely full?

A natural by-product of the active peroxide in Power White is oxygen. Because the oxygen has a tendency to expand, Power White is filled in a slightly oversized tube to allow for expansion. You can be assured that there is 2.6oz of toothpaste in the tube, as stated on the packaging.

How long do I have to use Power White before I see whiter teeth?

While every person’s teeth whiten at different rates, most individuals see whiter teeth after brushing twice a day for a full week.

NOW! Toothpaste & Mouth Rinse

How can I get instantly whiter teeth after just one rinse or brushing?

Both NOW! Toothpaste and Mouthrinse contain Bluverite®, a propriety formula that creates a subtle blue foam that clings to your teeth and delivers the optical effect of whiter teeth after only one brushing or rinse.

How long does the instant whitening last?

NOW! Toothpaste and Rinse’s instant whitening will last for hours. With daily use, you will see whiter teeth over time.

Is it safe for my teeth and dental work?

Absolutely. All of Luster’s products, including NOW! Toothpaste and Rinse, are clinically tested to ensure that they are enamel safe and will not harm dental restorations.

Can I use it daily?

Yes. Both the NOW! Toothpaste and Rinse are designed to be used as part of your daily oral care regimen. They can replace your existing toothpaste and mouthwash so that you not only keep your mouth clean and healthy but also get a whiter, brighter smile.

Will it help get permanent stains off of my teeth?

Yes. While the NOW! Toothpaste and Rinse are unique because they instantly whiten teeth, they will both help remove and prevent the recurrence of deep and surface stains with daily use.
