Keep your whitening gel in the refrigerator. This will make it a little easier to manipulate.
Before starting, floss and brush thoroughly.
Place a VERY SMALL amount of whitening gel in each tooth slot on the cheek side of your custom whitening tray. It is best to place it towards the top of the slot to allow the gel to disperse evenly downward.
Place tray and rub the front of your teeth to spread whitening gel.
NOTE: if whitening gel comes in contact with your gum tissue, remove tray and rinse mouth. This means that there is too much gel in the tray. Apply less gel at next application
Allow trays to stay in place for ONE HOUR. Do not drink or eat during this time.
Remove trays, rinse and brush them with cool water. Using hot water may distort trays making them less effective.
Rinse mouth with warm water and brush teeth thoroughly.
Repeat these steps every day for TWO WEEKS to enjoy your new bright smile.
If teeth are really sensitive, try leaving the trays in place for 30 minutes TWO TIMES per day
To conserve on whitening gel look at your smile in the mirror and place gel as far back as you can see. You can also skip any teeth that have crowns. The whitening gel will only affect natural tooth structure.
If the gel still oozes onto gum tissue, continue to decrease the amount of gel being used. Only a VERY SMALL amount is needed. If the gum tissue turns white, discontinue use until natural color returns.
