Whitening Pro System FAQ

Q: How many different people can use each kit?

A: The kits are designed for one individual. Each kit contains enough gel for approximately 10-12 uses, however to achieve optimal results, the gel would be used repeatedly by one person. Also, please note that the trays are custom molded to each person's mouth and each kit only comes with one set of trays.

Q: What should I do prior to treatment?

A: Brush and floss your teeth just prior to bleaching.

Q: Will this whiten a dead tooth?

A: Dead teeth do not behave the same as living teeth. Many dentists will tell you that it is unlikely that the dead tooth will benefit from the application of any whitening product.

Q: How to prepare tray for usage?

A: Mold the thermo-forming trays to the teeth. They are molded by heating them up in hot water and then placing them in the mouth to form a precise mold of the teeth. The special blend of polymers has a very low molding temperature so there is no need to use extremely hot boiling water. DO NOT USE BOILING WATER.

Q: How to use remineralizing gel?

A: The remineralizing gel is used to desensitize the teeth and prevent tooth sensitivity. Rinse and dry your trays before applying the gel. Place a line of remineralizing gel on the inner front surface of the tray, and spread it around the inside front surface, just like you did with the whitening gel. Leave in your mouth for 5 minutes. Remove trays but do not rinse your mouth. It is recommended to remineralize before going to bed for a thorough night-time remineralizing process. Remineralize once a week during your whitening process and once a week thereafter until you run out of gel.

Q: How big are the moldings after formed? Are they the size of mouth guards? Or are they small enough you don't feel them?

A: The trays are slightly smaller than mouth guards but are definitely noticeable to the wearer.

Q: I grind my teeth at night and my dentist told me I need a night guard. Can the molds also be used for this purpose? I understand I would only need either an upper or lower mold.

A: Unfortunately, the molds were not designed to be used for grinding.

Q: Do you know if the gel can be used for sensitive teeth?

A: Individual tolerance can only be evaluated by the individual. Some people do experience reversible tooth sensitivity and/or gum irritation. Steps can be taken to minimize this, including decreasing the length of each bleaching session and increasing the amount of time between bleaching sessions. The remineralizing gel, included in the kit, is also used to desensitize the teeth and prevent tooth sensitivity.

Q: I understand this will not whiten implants but is this safe to use on them?

A: Yes, the whitening gel is safe for implants.

Q: Is there an expiration date on this?

A: The gel is good for 1 year and should be kept out of direct sunlight for storage.

Q: Do these kits do any damage to the enamel?

A: No, the gel does not damage the enamel if instructions are followed.

Q: Do the kits work on tetracycline stains?

A: No, this will not whiten the discoloration caused by tetracycline.

Q: Are there any side affects from using the Whitening Pro System?

A: Some clients experience mild temporary sensitivity.

Q: How long do you keep the solution on the teeth, before rinsing?

A: You should typically keep the solution on your teeth for 20-30 minutes.

Q: Where is this product manufactured?

A: All teeth whitening products are manufactured in the United States.

Q: Where are the ingredients from?

A: All teeth whitening ingredients are from the United States.

Q: Does the Whitening Pro System meet ADA guidelines or is it approved by the ADA?

A: The ADA does not approve products nor does it govern manufacturing standards. It does endorse certain products; however, we have not sought an endorsement from them. All the Teeth whitening products are manufactured in FDA Registered Facilities in the USA.     

Q: When will I see improvement?

A: This is subjective to each individual – most begin noticing improvement after their first session.

Q: Is it safe to use while pregnant?

A: Please do not use if you are pregnant – please consult with your physician.

Q: Is there any flavor to this?

A: There is a mild, hint of mint to the flavoring, but it is not mint flavored.

Q: How should I store Whitening Pro System?

A: Wash your mouth trays with a tooth brush or Q-tip and cold water. Store in a dry place (preferably in a retainer case). Be sure to keep the whitening gel in a cool place (the refrigerator is a great place). Attention: DO NOT FREEZE. If you refrigerate the gel please take the gel out of the refrigerator at least 1 hour before each teeth whitening session so it is at room temperature when you use it.

Q: Can I drink staining beverages during the treatment?

A: During the entire length of your whitening treatment, you should avoid staining beverages as much as possible, including coffee, tea, red wine, colas, and citrus beverages. If you must consume these, it is highly recommended to do so through a straw.
