BriteSmile tooth whitening system

Can you please comment of the effectiveness of the BriteSmile whitening system. How many visits will I need to make to the dentist (do I have to have the standard scaling/polishing in preparation?) and what I can resonably expect to pay?

Many thanks

The Britesmile system is one of the systems we personally use in all of our practices. I have reviewed reults over a 2 year period and they are extremely pleasing. I have had the procedure done on myself too and am very happy.
It is performed in one visit. You do not necessarily need a scaling/polishing.
We charge R3200 for the procedure which I believe is the cheapest in the world! (according to Britesmile SA).
