White Guys has been whitening teeth in the Quad Cities for 3 years and going strong. We are an innovator and pioneer in the teeth whitening industry because what we do works. Join the HUNDREDS of people who have done our treatments today!



No, this type of staining is known as fluorosis. It was caused by the uptake into the enamel of excessive amounts of fluoride while the customer’s permanent teeth were forming, again between prenatal to 12 years of age. We recommend that the client seek the advise of their dentist to correct this problem. Cosmetic Teeth Whitening will not help excessively fluorosed teeth.

It is normal that certain areas of a tooth that are decalcified will respond and whiten more rapidly than the surrounding tooth structure. The rest of the tooth eventually catches up with the spots and will become more uniform in color as one continues to bleach.

The teeth usually have a seamless whitening transition zone from whiter near the biting surface of the tooth to less white near the gum line. This is normal and is an expected result because the tooth enamel is thinner near the gum line and will show through some of the tooth’s naturally yellower inner dentin layer. It is this slight transition that makes the tooth appear to be more natural and not just a monochrome “Chiclet” of a tooth, which looks very unnatural.

Everyone’s teeth are different. We all have different body chemistry, dental health, genetics, etc. Most people will experience a 2-4 shades whiter difference with a 20-minute treatment, and 5-8 shades difference with a double (two back-to-back 20-minute regimens) treatment session. The new multi-session regimen, which is five 20-minute treatments any way the client wants, doing no more than a double in any 24-hour period, over the next six months, may result in more than 8 shades whiter from start to finish. Overall, over 98% of White Guys clients are absolutely thrilled and ecstatic about their treatment results. The “WOW!” factor is huge.

No, there is no alcohol in our teeth bleaching gels.

No. We are not aware of any dental insurance that has a covered benefit for Cosmetic Teeth Whitening.  WE ARE NOT DENTISTS AND DO NOT ACCEPT INSURANCE.

For the most part, the light’s wavelength may be approximately the same as ours, but the intensity of these small hand-held lights is much lower and therefore will not work as well or as fast. These lights also come with kits using carbamide peroxide, which does not react as well or as fast as hydrogen peroxide gels do with the addition of a light. The light in this case is more of a gimmick than an actual aid to teeth bleaching, and can help cause the price of these take home kits to be higher than need be.

We recommend that one should avoid eating or drinking any stain-causing foods or beverages (coffee, tea, cola, red wine, dark fruit juices) for at least 24 hours. If you need to drink these beverages during this time, use a straw to avoid a lengthy contact time with your teeth.

Some people may feel a slight tingling sensation or have minor discomfort during or after a teeth-whitening session. A few may have white spots, called blanching, on their gums as well. These effects are transient and quickly dissipate with a few minutes or so. Most people report no discomfort or sensitivity at all during or after their White Guys treatment. Different people react in different ways to chemicals and treatments, and this holds true for Cosmetic Teeth Whitening procedures as well as teeth bleaching products. White Guys recommends that if a client is experiencing pain or discomfort during the bleaching process, they should discontinue the treatment immediately and consult their dentist as soon as possible as this may indicate an undiscovered or unknown problem that might be occurring in their mouths.

The causes are many. The most common are natural aging and the prolonged consumption of staining agents such as tobacco, coffee, tea, red wine, dark-colored soda, and staining foods like mustard, tomato sauce, or blueberries. A good rule to go by is that if it will stain a white handkerchief or white t-shirt, then it may similarly stain your teeth. Other people may have a different type of staining that occurs when the permanent adult teeth are forming, typically at age prenatal through 12. When children of this age group are exposed to excessive fluoride, tetracycline or other antibiotics, certain embedded and permanent stains or discolored tooth formations may occur. These types of “tooth-formation” stains do not respond well to any form of teeth bleaching. These individuals should consult their dentist for other options, such as bonding, veneers, or crowns.

Yes, we use the same type of peroxide-based teeth bleaching gels as a dentist, but White Guys gels may be of a lower strength than what a dentist might use. We do get the same or better results as a dentist in less time, however, depending on the type of treatment the dentist chooses to use.

Again, the answer to this question is that these individuals need to be seen by their dentist first and have the condition permanently resolved prior to any form of teeth whitening or teeth bleaching.

If you are in active orthodontic treatment and have bands and/or brackets bonded or cemented to your teeth, please wait until after completion of treatment and all appliances have been removed before commencing any bleaching treatment. A lower tightly bonded lingual (tongue-side) wire retainer that was placed by an orthodontist after regular orthodontic treatment is fine to have in your mouth while bleaching is done.

All oral piercings (tongue, cheeks, lips, or nose) must be removed prior to having any teeth whiting treatments done. If they are not easily removable, we recommend no whitening products or services to these individuals until the appliances are removed

No, we recommend that the permanent restorations be placed by the person’s dentist before commencing a whitening program.  THE ONLY THING WE EVER RECOMMEND IS TO SEE YOUR DENTIST OR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER AS WE ARE NEITHER OF THESE!

Teeth bleaching will not change any of these restoration’s intrinsic (inside) color, however, it may slightly remove some extrinsic (outside) stains. The procedure will not harm dental restorations. If one’s natural teeth are yellower than the restored teeth, then whitening may bring the natural teeth closer in shade to the restored teeth. If the restored teeth are yellower in color, then bleaching will only make the difference in shade greater between them and their naturally colored counterparts. In this case, one may want to bleach their teeth first, then have the restorations redone by their dentist to match the newly bleached color. This, however, can lead to expensive and extensive dental work, so again, consult a dentist first.

No, we recommend seeing a dentist first before beginning a bleaching treatment of any kind because WE ARE NOT DENTIST. WE DO NOT DIAGNOSE, TREAT, CURE, RECOMMEND, NOR SUGGEST. PLEASE SEE YOUR REGULAR DENTIST OR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER! After that amount of time of not seeing a dentist, many unfavorable conditions could exist in a persons mouth, and that person might not even be aware of those problems. When in doubt, always see a dentist first.

No. Some people are born with close to snow-white colored teeth, but most have varying shades of yellow, gray, or a combination of both. Cosmetic Teeth Whitening does produce some astounding results, and many will say, Wow! after their whitening procedure is completed. The vast majority of White Guys clients are extremely pleased with their results.

In general, if your teeth are stained yellow it will be easier to whiten them. Gray teeth are harder to whiten and don’t respond as well as yellow-stained teeth. If one’s genetically determined base teeth color is yellow (that is, not stained yellow), then those teeth will be considerably harder to bleach white.

White Guys recommends seeing a dentist first before bleaching to those clients that haven’t seen a dentist in 2 or more years, have open unfilled holes in their teeth, or who have untreated gum disease. Also, as with most elective procedures, we do not recommend Cosmetic Teeth Whitening for any woman that is pregnant or nursing.

Yes. Extensive clinical research and trials have shown that Cosmetic Teeth Whitening is safe.[vii] Many dentists and dental researchers consider this process to be the safest dental or cosmetic procedure available. White Guys does recommend that no one under the age of 18 years, nor any women that are pregnant or breast feeding, have this procedure done.

It depends greatly on the client’s lifestyle and habits. If one drinks a lot of coffee, tea, dark soda, or red wine, or especially if one smokes, the results will not last as long. These individuals may have to repeat the process more often. WHITE GUYS RECOMMENDS 4 TIMES PER YEAR MINIMUM.

Again, professional dental research has shown that this process will not harm currently used dental restorative materials.

No, the scientific literature shows that neither the gel nor the light that White Guys uses will cause any nerve damage.

No, research has shown that bleaching your teeth with peroxide-based gels does not harm the enamel of the teeth. This type of bleaching has been done for over twenty years, even with stronger whitening gels than what White Guys uses, and no damage to enamel has occurred.

You may feel a slight tingling, bubbling or effervescence against your teeth for the first few minutes. This is normal and is the sign that the gel is producing the oxygen that does the work of bleaching.

The chairside teeth whitening treatment process, takes a minimum of about a half hour from start to finish to do a single treatment, and about 50 minutes total time to do a double teeth whitening session. That includes initial paperwork, pre-treatment prep, and post-treatment finishing and instruction. So, in less than an hour maximum, one can have a whiter smile.

Cosmetic Teeth Whitening is the #1 requested treatment procedure in a dental office, and is second only to hair treatments in the beauty world. More people than you might imagine have their teeth whitened. A nice bright, white smile can make a big difference in the way a person feels about themselves, and can help boost confidence in almost any social setting.

In the chairside treatment, the client is first given a teeth-cleaning swab that they use to remove any plaque from the surface of their teeth. The beginning shade is measured and agreed upon with the use of a mirror and dental shade guide. Then, the client inserts a mouth prop and cheek retractor into their mouth.

Using the gel syringe, a tiny BB-sized droplet of gel is placed by the client onto each of their teeth that are to be whitened. The client distributes the whitening gel on each tooth with a fine tipped micro brush. The client then relaxes fully against the head rest of the chair, and the light is positioned correctly and activated. The client relaxes in the chair with the light on for 20 minutes, at which time the light automatically goes off. The client then rinses their out mouth with water.

Double Session – If a second 20-minute session is to be done, the client reapplies fresh gel to their teeth and the process is repeated. After final mouth rinsing, the ending shade is agreed upon and the whitening treatment is complete. Lastly, the client is given post-treatment instructions both verbally and written, and the client takes home written post-treatment instructions and recommendations.

White Guys currently has two methods to whiten teeth. First is our chairside light-accelerated power bleaching system. This method uses our proprietary photosensitive hydrogen peroxide gel and Accelerator Lights, which allow us to complete a whitening in as little as 15 minutes with an average shade change of 2-4 shades as measured on a standard dental shade guide. This type of process is self-administered.

No! the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved the use of peroxide for over-the-counter use. Our customers perform the teeth whitening (sometimes called teeth bleaching) procedure on themselves. Since our products are all self-administered, either by the chairside method or by our take home products, it is no different procedurally from what they can perform on their own. We never give them dental advice, and we never represent ourselves as dentists. We do recommend that our customers visit their dentist regularly and if they do not, we will advise them not to whiten their teeth until they have done so.
