How to use teeth whitening kit at home
Step 1(practice): Place the tray over the upper teeth without placing the tray in boiling water. Practice with your tongue on the roof of your mouth and touching the inside of the tray. Suck the air from the tray. This contours the guard to the inside surface of the teeth. When finished repeat with the lower tray.
Step 2: Bring water to a boil. The bowl should be at least 4″ deep to ensure the tray’s full immersion. Remove the container from the heat and place one tray in the hot but not boiling water. Leave the tray in water for 5 seconds. Make sure the edges do not fold onto each other.
Step 3: Lift the tray vertically from the water using the tab. Carefully and quickly place the tray around the teeth and then immediately perform the procedure outlined in step 1.
Step 4: Once you are satisfied with the fit, trim the front tab away from the tray with scissors. Make sure it is flush with the front surface of the tray.
Step 5: Place asmall bead of gel per tooth in the inside of the tray (.5cc or less per tray).The gel might irritate the gums if the trays are overloaded. Insert the trays very carefully keeping the gel on the teeth and away from the gums. The Gel contains 44% Carbamide Peroxide.
Step 6: Wear thetrays for 15 minutes. If sensitivity or irritation occurs wait 24 hours between treatments and use less gel. Be sure to rinse trays thoroughly after use.Repeat process daily until you reach the desired shade.
Final Step: After completing the bleaching process it is always a good idea to take a tooth brush and gently wipe away any excess gel that remains on the teeth and gums to prevent any possible irritation. Rinse excess gel from your tooth brush completely.
About The White Light: It has a transparent plastic tab that needs to be removed to allow the batteries to make contact. Once the tab has been removed press the white button to turn the light on. Once the trays are filled with the gel and already in your mouth, place the light in front of your teeth – as close as possible – for as long as the treatment lasts. If you have a problem with the light, please see our troubleshooting guide.
