Bleaching/ Teeth Whitening

How do I use the teeth whitening trays?

Trays are custom made to fit your teeth. A small reservoir has been fabricated on the front of the tray for each tooth to be whitened. This is where a very small amount of bleaching gel is to be placed. You will receive four syringes of whitening gel when your trays are delivered.

  • Place a very small amount of the gel in each reservoir.
  • Place trays over teeth.
  • Wear your trays for two hours each day or you may wear them overnight.
  • Clean trays after use by brushing with your toothbrush under warm water.
  • Should you feel the need to sterilize your trays, simply wash gently with warm water and soap and then rinse thoroughly.
  • Store in case away from pets.
  • Do not eat or drink for 30 minutes after bleaching.
  • Try to avoid excess coffee, tea, dark sodas or red wine during your bleaching process.
  • If you should experience any sensitivity during this process, alternate bleaching days and use Sensodyne toothpaste.
  • Keep extra syringes in the refrigerator.
