Teeth whitening for tanning beds—two dynamic industries—have joined forces in the latest beauty trend. Imagine catching rays while undergoing the same whitening process your dentist offers, but at home or on the go at your favorite tanning salon.

All you have to do is first apply whitening strips or gel to your teeth before tanning. From there, the tanning bed's UV light will boost the whitening process, enhancing results for a brighter smile during your tan session. 

At SNOW, we're leading experts in teeth whitening products, and we can give you the lowdown on how to combine tanning and teeth whitening with our stellar whitening products to amp up your smile game.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Our findings show that active ingredients like hydrogen peroxide in teeth whitening products, like those in SNOW's range, break down and release oxygen molecules to lighten discolorations and remove stains from the enamel and dentin of your teeth. The result? A brighter, whiter smile, also making it suitable as teeth whitening for over 60's!

How Do I Whiten My Teeth While I Tan?

Based on our observations, the ‘how' behind teeth whitening while tanning has to do with UV lights. While you're lying down in a tanning bed, these lights activate the whitening gel, serum, or LED lights used on your teeth, enhancing their effect and leading to better whitening results. Now, you can accelerate your teeth whitening process while tanning.

UV Light And Teeth Whitening

Through our trial and error, we discovered that using UV lights for teeth whitening accelerates the bleaching process. When combined with whitening agents, UV light enhances the oxidation of your tooth stains. This breaks down discoloration compounds faster, resulting in quicker and more effective teeth whitening and making teeth appear whiter at a faster rate.

Take our whitening toothbrush, for instance. It utilizes blue LED light technology to tackle tough stains and whiten your teeth safely and efficiently. When you're done with your tan, start brushing, and watch as the UV light activates the LED lights in your mouthpiece to brighten your teeth.

Now that you know how teeth whitening works inside a tanning bed, let's look at some of SNOW's products you can use for a comfortable whitening experience.

Using Whitening Strips

Our whitening strips for teeth are a game-changer for teeth whitening during tanning sessions. We've designed these strips to strip away years of stains and dissolve in under 15 minutes with virtually zero sensitivity.

When you apply our transparent strips before entering a tanning bed, the UV light not only tans your skin but also supercharges the whitening power of our strips, ensuring a brighter smile in no time. Plus, they come with the delightful taste of lavender mint, making your experience even more pleasant!

Using A Whitening Kit

Our whitening teeth kit is tailor-made tooth whitening for sensitive teeth if you want a brilliant smile while enjoying your tanning session.

Included in our kit is a whitening wand containing our specially formulated serum and an LED mouthpiece that replicates the effects of UV lights in a tanning bed. This synergy ensures a uniform and potent whitening experience, even if you have crooked white teeth.

Start by applying our whitening serum to your teeth using our nifty whitening wand. Then place the LED mouthpiece on your teeth afterwards and witness the dual-action of tanning and teeth whitening unfold simultaneously.

Is Tanning Bed Teeth Whitening Worth It?

Tanning bed teeth whitening is a unique approach that combines the benefits of UV light with the power of teeth whitening products.

While the UV light enhances your tan, it also boosts the effectiveness of whitening products on your teeth. This dual-action means you achieve a sun-kissed glow and a brighter smile simultaneously.

Our research indicates that by combining these processes, you can maximize your results in a single session, making it a valuable and convenient approach for those with busy lifestyles. Here's how:
