Frequently asked questions

How does Love My Smile work?

Our Dual cleaning and whitening foam work together to first clean and remove surface and below surface stains, while our gentle whitening foam works to lighten the natural tooth structure. The dual foam system, with its mild formulations and high water content, prevent dehydration of the tooth and any sensitivity during the cleaning and whitening process. Unlike most gel systems, which just sit on the surface of the teeth, our foam based cleaning and whitening technology penetrates the tooth structure. Love My Smile is pH neutral unlike many of the whitening systems which are highly acidic and can eventually cause enamel erosion.

When will I start to notice results with Love My Smile?

You will start to see cleaner and whiter teeth after 3 days. Results vary from person to person.

How long will whitening last?

The length of time your teeth will stay whiter is influenced by several factors including whether you smoke and how often you drink coffee, tea, dark colas or red wine. We recommend using our 90 day Maintenance Foam after the 30 day Whitening and Cleaning Treatment. This 4 month cycle can then be repeated with our number 1, 2 and 3 Foams for White Teeth For Life. See our Tips for other helpful ways to maintain a white smile.

Can I use the product longer than instructed to get better whitening results?

We recommend following usage instructions for each product.

How do I maintain whiter teeth for life?

After using Cleaning and Whitening, maintain white teeth with our Maintenance Foam. This is used in between Cleaning and Whitening cycles. The Maintenance Foam, peroxide free and SLS free, is gentle enough to use every day. Its non-abrasive formulation and ingredients help prevent stains from accumulating on teeth by putting a protective coating over them.

Can I replace my tooth paste during the cleaning and whitening process?

We recommend maintaining your normal oral care routine. However, you can replace your tooth paste during this process due to the foaming cleaning action of our products.

The Maintenance Foam can also replace your tooth paste, however, it is important to know that none of our products contains any fluoride.

Can I use Love My Smile on caps, veneers and bridgework?

Yes. Love My Smile works on caps, veneers and bridgework. Its non abrasive foam technology helps to remove stains without scratching the porcelain and returns them to their original lustre.

Will Love My Smile remove smoking stains?

Some stains can only be removed by your dental professional. Smoking stains can be more difficult to remove and may take a little longer. If you continue to smoke after whitening, your teeth may discolour faster. We recommend using our On The Go Teeth Cleaning Pen regularly after smoking to better maintain your white teeth.

To combat red wine stains, we recommend using our Teeth Cleaning Pen regularly after drinking red wine. Also try our Tooth Gloss which provides a unique coating to teeth protecting them from stains.

Get your confidence back
through your smile.

How to increase your confidence through your smile

The smile is one of our greatest assets, second only to the eyes as the most noticed feature on a person’s face. This is why one in three Canadians have gone through the trouble of whitening their teeth. And yet, the vast majority are not happy with the duration of the results or the painful, inconvenient and costly process.

This is why we set out to develop a system that minimizes the use of harsh chemicals that can cause sensitivity and irritation. Our Love My Smile 3-step system begins with a non-abrasive, dual action penetrating foam technology that goes deep beneath the surface of teeth to remove stains and then whitens. This is then followed by our gentle-action maintenance foam that helps maintain your teeth white longer.

We also developed unique one of a kind smile enhancing products like our On The Go! Cleaning Pen and Tooth and Lip Glosses. Our On The Go! Cleaning Pen helps remove stains on contact while giving you a burst of freshness no matter where you are. And our Tooth Gloss provides a unique protective coating to teeth making them look cleaner and shinier. The smile enhancing Lip Gloss uses a mild formulation for plumping and moisturizing while adding reflective properties to enhance the smile.

The smile is all about getting close and personal and having the confidence to do so before those important moments. It is, after all, a prelude to a kiss.
