Whitening Instructions

Whitening Instructions

Below are the instructions for our most popular whitening products. As with all whitening, the most common side effect is temporary tooth sensitivity. Therefore we always recommend start using sensitivity toothpaste several days prior to using these whitening products. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our office. We look forward to seeing your sparkly smile!

ready-to-go - Opalescence Go 15%

Wear Go Trays for only 20 minutes per day.  Video Instructions - YouTube


Customized - Opalescence PF 45% Whitening Gel

Opalescence PF whitening gel is applied in custom trays. These trays require two appointments - one to scan or impress your teeth and the second to deliver the trays and review the instructions.

Step 1

Express gel in one continuous bead halfway up the front side of the trays from molar to molar. This should use about 1/3 of a syringe per tray.


Step 2

Insert the trays in your mouth. Gently apply pressure to the front to adapt the trays and gel to the sides of your teeth. 

Wear for 30 minutes per day. You may need to shorten this to 15 minutes if you have sensitive teeth which varies person to person

Step 3

Remove the trays and use a soft toothbrush to remove excess gel from your teeth. Rinse your mouth twice to remove any excess gel.  Then gently brush with a sensitivity tooth paste without rinsing after.


Step 4

Gently clean the trays by brushing with a soft brush and cool tap water. Store the trays in the provided case away from heat or pets.


Please contact our office if you have any questions, excess sensitivity, or concerns with your whitening. We look forward to seeing your white and sparkly smile!
