Some people find their gums peel around the trays. This is just the dead layer of skin coming off, but can make the gums a little tender. This usually happens when you use too much solution.
- for the first night, wear your whitening trays for 10 minutes. If no sensitivity occurs then you can increase your time, usually up to an hour per night.

- use twice daily for 15 minutes or once a day for 30 minutes.
NITE WHITE- for the first night, wear your whitening trays for 20 minutes. If no sensitivity occurs then you can increase your time, usually up to an hour per night.
Each individual’s sensitivity level can vary. If sensitivity occurs decrease your whitening time and use sensitive toothpaste such as Colgate sensitive pro or Sensodyne.
You can keep whitening until you have reached your desired colour; generally between 5 and 14 days.
Rembember: It is recommended that you avoid eating and drinking heavily coloured foods and liquids for two hours after using whitening solution.
If you drink coffee, red wine, tea, coke, etc. your teeth will take up more stain, so sip water while doing so in order to maintain your whiteness.
Keep your trays safe so that you can use them again year after year. Whitening solution can be purchased directly from us as required.
