  • Remove the syringe cap and screw the applicator tip into place.
  • Ensure teeth are clean before inserting trays but do not brush immediately before treatment.
  • Place a SMALL drop of tooth whitening gel halfway up on the inner front surface of tray (in the front part of each tooth in the tray).
  • Place the tray around your teeth and apply gently with pressure.
  • Wipe away any excess gel from the tray edges with a tissue. .
  • The average treatment per arch requires approximately 0.5ml of whitening gel.
  • Avoid smoking and staining foods and drink such as, tea, coffee, red wine, curry etc, as this will affect the results.
  • We recommend you whiten one arch at a time, after 7 days you can check and assess the shade difference.
  • Clean your whitening trays using a soft brush, running cold water and dry them before storing.
  • Protect the gel from sunlight and store in a cool dry place.
  • No eating or drinking when whitening is in progress.
  • Do not use for more than 4 hours at one time.
  • If you experience sensitivity we recommend you use a sensitive toothpaste and fluoride mouthwash.
  • White fillings, crowns will not get whiter, therefore if your teeth shade are lighter you could speak to your dentist if you wish to have your fillings or crowns replaced.
  • Extra syringes can be brought if you wish to have a top up at an additional cost. Please speak to your dentist.
