At Home Bleaching Kit Instructions

Home Whitening with Opalescence Instructions

  • Brush and floss teeth before inserting tray
  • Load a small bead of gel into each tooth on the clear tray.
  • Place the tray(s) over your teeth. Lightly press them fully over the teeth into position. Some        excess gel will squeeze out of the trays
  • Remove excess gel with clean finger or soft toothbrush. Do not swallow rinsed gel
  • Wear Opalescence 10% or 15 % for at least 60 minutes each day. Trays may be worn                        overnight. Some sensitivity when first using bleach is normal; teeth will return to normal            after  a few days.  If teeth are extremely sensitive or uncomfortable, discontinue                              and contact our office. 
  • After use, clean tray with soft brush and cool tap water only
  • Store tray in case provided or Ziploc bag
  • Do not eat or drink anything for 1 hour after whitening. Do not brush or rinse for 1 hour for          best results.
  • Continue this process daily for 2 weeks or until you run out of gel


  • Pregnant women should not whiten teeth
  • Do not use tobacco products or eat or drink while whitening
  • Teeth are naturally darker along the gum line. These areas may require more time to                    lighten than the rest of the tooth surface and usually remain slightly darker.
  • Crowns, bridges, partial dentures, veneers and composite fillings will not whiten
  • Coffee, tobacco and other products can re-stain your teeth over time. Should this occur,              the teeth can be re-whitened within a few nights using Opalescence
