Getting the whitest teeth possible is always your goal when looking at teeth whitening systems. There are differences between some of the most popular systems, and it's crucial to understand these distinctions before making a decision. Take, for instance, the GLO vs. Snow teeth whitening systems. Let's get into the main differences between the two, since both systems use LED light and gel to brighten smiles.
Trust is a big factor when it comes to choosing a whitening device to place inside of your mouth. You want to be sure that the device is safe and that it does what it's supposed to do. User reviews are one way to determine trustworthiness but when you look deeper into things, it's clear that one brand stands head and shoulders above the other in the area of trust.
GLO products were conceived and invented by Dr. Jonathan B. Levine, a practicing dentist and well-regarded expert in oral health. Dr. Levine is also a professor and inventor who holds numerous patents for his GLO teeth whitening innovations.
Snow is a company created by a young entrepreneur, and it's apparent that this company has done some good research. However, there is no confirmable information about dental health expertise or innovation behind its products at the time of this article.
In the area of advanced technology, GLO easily outshines Snow. While the Snow device may look somewhat similar to GLO's device, there is nothing similar between the two when it comes to how these devices operate. A key difference is that GLO uses patented heat and light technology for its innovative mouthpiece. While, Snow's mouthpiece tech offers no heat to facilitate the teeth whitening process.
Quality of whitening gel formula is another reason to choose GLO Kits over Snow. GLO's formulations are designed to work hand-in-hand with all of its innovative tech. Both the formulations and high-tech delivery systems were developed by experienced dentists. Many years of dental expertise went into designing and creating every GLO product and it shows by how easy it is to use GLO and how fast and efficient GLO works. On the other hand, Snow doesn't seem to have any scientific dental expertise behind its system.
Use by Dental Professionals
GLO Science offers such breakthrough systems for home users because the technology and whitening systems were inspired by those commonly used by dentists. These systems are developed by a highly regarded practicing dentist and oral health expert to be used in a dental practice in addition to being used at home. In fact, GLO Kits are used and trusted in thousands of dental practices and in thousands of private homes. And because GLO Science has proven to be highly effective in whitening all sorts of smiles, these whitening products are now the preferred teeth whitening system for a growing number of dental professionals. That's right! GLO offers advanced technology for consumers and dental professionals alike. This makes it easy to get a bright GLO smile wherever you go.
Snow claims to be formulated by dentists but as of now, this system is a consumer-only brand.
Gel Formula Safety
An LED light cannot do the job of whitening teeth alone. Effective whitening requires an LED light combined with heat and whitening gel formulation. Both of these systems use their own unique gels. So, how does each one stack up in the area of safety? Let's find out.
Dr. Levine brought years of expertise and understanding about what makes the best whitening gel to formula development, and this gives GLO Science a real edge in this head-to-head comparison. GLO gel has hydrogen peroxide as its active ingredient, which is safe and effective for teeth whitening and breaks down cleanly into harmless oxygen and water. Most importantly, this formula is free of carbamide peroxide, a weaker cleaning agent for teeth and gums that breaks down into urea and ammonia in your mouth. It's so much better to use the GLO Science gel formula that breaks down into elements your mouth encounters every day - O2 and H20. GLO Science's unique gel formula is great at removing stains, even on sensitive teeth, and it does it without causing discomfort.
Users also appreciate how simple and easy it is to apply the gel using the patented G-Vial. Each vial contains precise amounts, and there's never a mess to deal with during application.
Snow whitening gel contains carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide requires three times the concentration of hydrogen peroxide, which poses an increased risk for tooth sensitivity. And without being sure of what the concentration is for Snow, you can't be sure how much of a risk that is.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Getting whiter teeth at home is going to take a certain amount of time, and there's no getting around that. Even so, you want to spend as little time as possible getting the best whitening results. So, how much time does GLO Science vs. Snow require?
GLO Lit and GLO Brilliant can give you a whiter smile within five to ten days. You only have to commit to a week of treatments to see results.
Alternatively, the Snow whitening system requires quite a bit more commitment. How long? According to Snow, it can take as little as 21 days and as long as 30 days to see results. Are you willing to commit to following this system for a whole month when there is a faster whitening system?
Hmm. That's another key thing to think about when deciding to go with either the GLO or Snow teeth whitening system.
Both GLO Science and Snow come with everything you need to use the system. But only GLO Science goes above and beyond the basics with convenient GLO device accessories. Get a charging dock or replace a GLO mouthpiece, power pack, universal power cord or travel case whenever the need arises. GLO Science has a 30-day moneyback guarantee on all of its products, so you can test them out for yourself.
Overall, when taking all of the above comparisons into account, GLO Science edges out Snow in all areas thanks to its innovative and patented design, ease of use, safety and convenience.
