How Does Teeth Whitening Work with ARC?
At ARC, we use peroxide-infused gel to whiten your teeth. Peroxide is proven safe for your enamel and effective at brightening your smile, which is why it’s the exact same ingredient that dentists use.
With our ARC Treatment Strips, we keep the peroxide-infused gel in constant contact with your teeth for maximum efficiency. That’s why each treatment takes just 30 minutes, so you don’t have to slow down your life to brighten it.
Hydrogen Peroxide = Water + Oxygen
2H202 = 2H20 + 02
How does the ARC system whiten?
Over time, your teeth can begin to discolor and yellow as stains accumulate at the enamel’s surface. But it’s easy to spark it back up with peroxide. Peroxide occurs naturally in your body and is present in many biological processes, which is why your body has natural enzymes that help break it down.
As the peroxide breaks down, it releases activated oxygen which attacks the stains.

What’s left? Water, oxygen & whiter teeth!
How does Blue Light teeth whitening work?
The Blue Light works by targeting yellow tooth stains. Blue Light wavelengths are specifically absorbed by yellow, and as the yellow stains absorb the Blue Light energy, they begin to weaken and lose their color. The stains then become more reactive to the whitening action of peroxide, removing the stains more quickly and easily than whitening strips alone.

The Blue Light is harmful to teeth
Fact: Our Blue Light contains LED lights, like the ones in light bulbs and other electronics. However, our scientists have designed our Blue Light to stay within a specific range of wavelengths in the visible spectrum. This special blue wavelength specifically targets the yellow of stains to help harmlessly break them down.
While the wavelengths of infrared and UV lights can be dangerous, the type of light in the ARC Blue light is safe and effective. So, feel confident stepping into the light.
