6 Steps : Home Teeth Whitening Kit Instructions Cool Teeth Whitening products are so simple to use.

You can whiten your own teeth in 6 easy steps. Please pay attention to the details in these steps. And remember to brush and floss your teeth before each whitening session.

Step 1)

Practice Your Trays: This is the pre-molding step without water. Place the tray over the upper teeth without placing the tray in hot water. Practice with your tongue on the roof of your mouth and touching the inside of the tray. Suck the air out of the tray. When you suck the air out, the trays will fit tighter to your teeth, contouring the tray to the inside surface of your teeth. When finished repeat with the lower tray.

Step 2)

Add Hot Water: For this step, you will use hot but not boiling water. Boil a pan of water about 4” in depth and wait a few minutes for water to cool down a bit. Holding from the tap, dip one tray in the hot water for 5-6 seconds. The hot water will make the tray very pliable and ready to mold. At this stage, trays will tend to stick together and edges will tend to fold onto each other. Avoid twirling the trays and maintain the contour of the trays.

Step 3)

Mold Your Trays: Remove the tray from hot water vertically and quickly place the tray around your teeth and suck the air out like you did in Step 1. You can also your fingers and tongue to shape the trays. This will mold the tray to the unique shape of your teeth. You have about 5-10 seconds before the tray cool down. If you are not happy with the fit, you can repeat Steps 2 and 3 several times.

Step 4)

Trim Your Trays: Once you are satisfied with the fit, trim the front tab away from the tray with scissors. Make sure it is flush with the front surface of the tray. If the trays are too deep for your teeth, you can cut the top of the trays. Custom fitting your trays is very important. Well fit trays keep the gel in touch with your teeth and away from your gums. Poorly molded trays can’t whiten your teeth and your gums may hurt.

Step 5)

Add Whitening Gel: Place a very small bead of gel per tooth in the frontal portion of the tray for the front 8-9 teeth. You do not need too much gel, a tiny bead will be enough. You do not need more than 0.25 cc gel per tray. The gel might irritate the gums if the trays are overloaded. Insert the trays very carefully keeping the gel on the teeth and away from the gums. If you feel the gel on your gums, take off the trays and clean your gums. You have plenty of gel to start over. If this is your very first time whitening at home, limit your first session to 2 minutes. Increase the duration of your sessions gradually only if you are comfortable. You can leave the whitening gel on for up to 15 minutes. Remember to clean your trays after each use.

Step 6)

Turn On the Light (Optional): Light is used during the whitening process along with the trays. Once the trays are filled with gel and already in your mouth, place the light in front of the tray. Turn the light on by pressing the white button. The light is on a timer and it will turn off automatically unless you push the button again. Keep the light on for as long as the treatment lasts.

Remineralization Gel (Optional): Blue colored remineralization gels , also known as desensitizing gels, can be purchased separately. This gel reduces sensitivity of your teeth. It is great for people who have sensitive teeth, especially first-time bleachers. After the whitening process, rinse your trays and clean the residual gel on your teeth. You will use the trays for the remineralization process. Put a very small drop of remineralization gel in the front and back of the tray. Wear your trays back and keep them on as long as you like. If you like, you can do this process before going to bed. You can remove the tray and go to bed without washing your mouth. The gel will work all night. You can do the remineralization process after every whitening or as needed.

Before and After Teeth Whitening Whitening sessions can be done every other day until desired results are accomplished. If you experience sensitivity or gum irritation, discontinue use for 3-5 days and try again. It is recommended to do touch up whitening sessions twice a month. After Whitening: You should give your teeth a chance to recover before consuming food and beverages that may stain your teeth. You may want to wait at least 36 hours to consume food or beverages that may stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, green tea, wine, etc.

3 Golden Rules of Cool Teeth Whitening

1- Start with a 2 minute test session. Increase duration gradually up to 15 minutes, only if you are comfortable. 2- Make sure you do not use too much gel to overflow the trays. 3- Make sure you cut the top of the trays if they are too big for your teeth. Molding and cutting the trays customized to your teeth is very important. The whitening gel will only work with nicely fit trays. Poorly molded trays will not fit well. As a result the gel will not whiten and your gums will hurt. Caution: This is a strong whitening product. It may irritate your gums. Irritation may last up to 24-48 hours. Please proceed with caution.
