How long do you leave whitening gel on your teeth?

For first-time users, it is recommended to leave the whitening gel on for 30 minutes to 1 hour, and to increase the wearing time if there is little or no tooth sensitivity.

The amount of time you should leave whitening gel on your teeth for whitening will be determined by the whitening gel’s (bleach) concentration percentage. The length of time will also be determined by the color of your teeth at the start. Bleaching your teeth will take longer if they are stained or very yellow. If you don’t have any sensitivity issues, you can wear the trays for up to two hours. After you’ve finished, make sure you remove all of the excess whitening gel materials from around your gums.

For sensitive teeth, we recommend that you apply it for two weeks, once a day for 15-20 minutes, or until you achieve your desired whiteness. You should only whiten your teeth once a day. Touch-ups can be done as needed after the desired shade has been achieved.

How much Gel should I put in the trays?

Apply a thin, steady ribbon of gel to the tray’s inner surface that comes into contact with the teeth.  Important: Too much gel in the trays can cause tooth sensitivity and gum irritation.  A small amount of gel goes a long way! Keep in mind that 1 gel syringe equals about 3-4 full applications (1 full application being both the upper and lower teeth).

What strength is the gel?

Should I use a whitening gel?

Although over-the-counter gels and pastes are available, we recommend that you use a whitening agent provided by your dentist.  They will provide you with a professional whitening gel as well as a custom mold of your mouth to assist you in achieving your desired bright smile.  Apply the gel to the inside of the mold first, then place the mold over your teeth.  Some gels can be worn for hours at a time, while others can be worn overnight; detailed instructions will be sent home with you.  The custom mold ensures a comfortable, high-quality whitening experience that lasts longer.
