Whitening hints and tips

  • Hints for optimal lightening

    Night time wear works well because the mouth is drier and the gels are less diluted by your saliva.

    Don’t worry if the teeth become a little sensitive – the sensitivity will go within a few days.

    You could place a desensitising toothpaste (eg sensodyne in your trays) for 15 minutes. This gives a calming effect and can be done at a different time to whitening.

    Keep your stocks of bleaching gel cool – ideally in the fridge or in a cool cupboard.

    When cleaning your dental trays use cold water so that you do not spoil the accurate fit of the trays.

    6% hydrogen peroxide gels such as Day White work for about an hour before needing replacing.

    16% Carbamide peroxide gels such as Night White may work for 2 to 4 hours.

    Top up your whitening every three months for an hour using your trays to keep that smile sparkling.
