How Does GLO Whitening work?
Teeth whitening can often be a frustrating, problematic and unpredictable proposition. Historically, whitening system companies have promised ease-of-use, outstanding results and happy patients. But you’ve probably experienced a gap between what’s promised and what’s delivered. Most dentists providing teeth whitening have been frustrated with a lack of predictability, effectiveness, and longevity of effect, as well as complaints of sensitivity by patients.
Intrinsic tooth color is a result of large natural pigment and stain molecules trapped within the microstructure of teeth. The larger these molecules are, the more chromophores they contain, and the darker the teeth appear.
All peroxide gels work by forming hydrogen peroxide as their end product. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down to water, oxygen, and numerous radicals and byproducts known as “bleaching factors” that lighten teeth.
Optimum whitening results are achieved only when these whitening gels are: fully potent; chemically influenced to produce a high percentage of free radicals (instead of simply oxygen and water); and are allowed extended time for these factors to diffuse thoroughly into the microstructure of teeth.
Clinical Research Associates (CRA) as well as other researchers have found that whitening gel in conventional whitening trays is only strongly active for 25-35 minutes. This is due to rapid contamination of the whitening gel by saliva.
Both saliva and sulcular fluid contain an abundance of the anti-oxidant enzyme peroxidase. When filling a set of upper and lower whitening trays with whitening gel, approximately 6.5mg of peroxide is placed in the trays. Saliva is capable of destroying a full 29mg of peroxide per minute! It takes very little contamination of the whitening gel in the trays by saliva to destroy whitening gel on contact.
GLO Vial Teeth Whitening Gel
Forget about uncomfortable trays, runny gels, and messy strips. Our patented GLO Vials are designed to let you easily brush on our specially formulated, sensitivity-free, no-drip hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening gel. It only takes seconds to apply and it stays on your teeth without running onto your gums.
Plus, GLO Vials feature an air tight seal inside so you always get fresh, active gel even after opening – no refrigeration required.
Simply brush the gel directly onto your teeth – it will penetrate and evaporate, vaporizing stains and whitening your smile. No messy strips needed and no need to rinse. Each GLO Vial contains enough gel for at least 6 applications.
Use GLO Vials on their own to whiten in seconds on-the-go, or accelerate your results by pairing them with your GLO Device.

How does the GLO Whitening System combat the sensitivity issue?
GUIDED LIGHT OPTICS (G.L.O) ACCELERATING TECHNOLOGY
The GLO Teeth Whitening Device
The magic is in the warming heat acceleration!
Invented by NYC aesthetic dentist and world renowned oral health expert, Dr. Jonathan B. Levine, the GLO Teeth Whitening Device harnesses the power of Guided Light Optics (G.L.O.) technology to accelerate your results.
Special heat resistors and light reflectors inside the mouthpiece direct the energy of gentle warming heat and safe 470nm LED light into the whitening gel, speeding up the whitening process by energizing the hydrogen peroxide formulation, surrounding each tooth with more whitening power and leading to faster results – without sensitivity.
This patented, one-of-a-kind technology is available only from GLO Science and is registered with the FDA. It has been recognized with a Silver Edison Award for innovation and is the same teeth whitening technology used in thousands of dental practices.
