.. I've never done any teeth whitening before, besides just tooth paste. Ha. A couple years ago, my dentist though 'filling' a crocked tooth would be a great idea. Yeah, my tooth look straight now, but that area is stained, from soda, coffe, juice... I hate smiling because of it. Anyway, so I was excited to get to try this tooth whitener, thinking it will work on that tooth! I've heard good things about Dr Song, and I like their other products Ive tried, so why not..
I've used this kit, which includes 8 things of the whitener, a brush to apply it, 3 trays, and a
light, maybe 3 times now.. I can already see a differance! Love the results so far! Here's some directions for using the Whitener and the Remineralization Gel:
Step 1: Place the tray over the upper teeth without placing the tray in boiling water. Practice with your tongue on the roof of your mouth and touching the inside of the tray. Suck the air from the tray. This contours the guard to the inside surface of the teeth. Repeat with lower tray.
Step 2: Bring water to a boil. Pour the water into a cup and let sit for 1 minute. Dip the tray into the water for 5 seconds. Make sure the edges do not fold onto each other (occurs when dipped for too long, if this happens, reshape tray back to original form, allow to cool and try again).
Step 3: Lift the tray vertically from the water using the tab. Carefully and quickly place the tray around the teeth and then immediately perform the procedure outlined in step 1.
Step 4: The tray can be reformed multiple times by dipping them again into hot water, repeat until satisfied.
Step 5: Once you are satisfied with the fit, trim the front tab away from the tray with scissors.
Whitening Treatment Instructions:
Please do not rush the whitening process. Going slowly and achieving results in the long run is the best way. Keep the use of gel to a minimum, less is more. Keep the gel away from your gums as they may irritate them/cause temporary bleaching of gums.
Step 1: Brush and floss just prior to bleaching your teeth. Dispense .5 ml of gel into a small bowl and using the applicator brush, apply a thin layer of gel to the front teeth only, keep the gel away from the gums. Do not whiten the back teeth, since no one can see them.
Step 2: Insert whitening trays in the mouth over the teeth. Immediately wipe any excess gel off of the gums. Wear the trays for 15 minutes and up to 4 hours if a stronger treatment is desired. If sensitivity or irritation occurs, wait 24 hours between treatments and use less gel. Repeat process daily as needed.
Optional: If you have a LED tray light, you can place it over the trays and use it for 15 minutes at the start of each session. Make sure to take out the clear plastic safety disk in the battery compartment before attempting to turn on.
Final Step: Gently remove any excess gel that remains on the teeth.
If you need faster results, mix the gel with a small amount of water before applying as water/saliva can activate the whitener. Shelf life of whitener is approximately 12 months upon receiving when stored properly in a cool, dark place.
Ingredients: carbamide peroxide, water, glycerin, carbomer, potassium sorbate, disodium EDTA, flavor
Remineralization Gel Instructions:
Use the remineralization gel after each teeth whitening treatment to eliminate any sensitivity or use as often as needed/desired.
Step 1: Brush your teeth each time before using the remineralization gel. The gel is most effective on clean teeth.
Step 2: Make sure that dental trays are clean and dry before applying remineralization gel into them. Moisture reduces the efficacy of the remineralization gel.
Step 3: Apply a small amount of remineralization gel around the bottom interior of the dental tray.
Step 4: Position the dental tray over your teeth and press gently so that the remineralization gel covers the entire surface of your teeth. Wipe off any overflow gel. Wear dental trays as needed from 30 minutes to 4 hours. Overnight applications are acceptable.
Step 5: After your remineralization session, clean the dental trays with warm water and toothbrush.

Results depend on how long you use it and how often.. I seen results after the second use.. well,
they were more noticable after the second time anyway. There was no sensitivity, I really thought there would be, considering Ive never used a whitener before. So far Im happy with the product and results! Id recommend to anyone looking for an at home teeth whitening kit!
