Do you feel like your teeth are yellow or stained and no amount of brushing is helping? Dr. Dan Dental is happy to offer our patients a one-time complimentary teeth whitening kit.
After an initial exam to be sure there is no decay on any of your teeth (any existing decay will become incredibly sensitive and should be fixed before doing any sort of cosmetic procedures), impressions will be taken of your top and bottom teeth. An assistant will fabricate customized trays made of a plastic material which conform to your teeth only. Our office uses Philips Zoom “NiteWhite” 22% Carbamide Peroxide whitening gel. Included in your kit is: Instructions for use, 4 whitening gel syringes and a case for your trays.
Instructions for use:
⦁ Brush and floss your teeth. Twist off the clear plastic cap from the syringe and replace with the mixing nozzle.
⦁ Place a small “teardrop” amount of the gel in each tooth compartment in the tray.
⦁ Place the tray with the gel in your mouth.
⦁ Keep gel away from the gums. If any gel extrudes onto your gums, use a tissue, your finger or a dry toothbrush to remove.
⦁ NiteWhite is recommended to be worn overnight or 2-4 hours a day. We recommend starting with one hour and increasing length depending on any sensitivity. Most people see results within 2 weeks.
⦁ After whitening, remove and rinse trays with cold water. Brush your teeth with water only to remove gel from teeth.
Important: avoid direct ingestion of this product. Avoid direct contact of the whitening gel with the gums and/or salivary flow. If any gel comes into contact with your saliva be sure to spit it out. If nausea or vomiting occurs discontinue use.
