Here are a few answers to Frequently Asked Questions about the Whitening Pro System:
Q: How many different people can use each kit?
A: The kits are designed for one individual. Each kit contains enough gel for approximately 10-12 uses, however to achieve optimal results, the gel would be used repeatedly by one person. Also, please note that the trays are custom molded to each person's mouth and each kit only comes with one set of trays.
Q: Will this whiten a dead tooth?
A: Dead teeth do not behave the same as living teeth. Many dentists will tell you that it is unlikely that the dead tooth will benefit from the application of any whitening product.
Q: How big are the moldings after formed? Are they the size of mouth guards? Or are they small enough you don't feel them?
A: The trays are slightly smaller than mouth guards but are definitely noticeable to the wearer.
Q: I grind my teeth at night and my dentist told me I need a night guard. Can the molds also be used for this purpose? I understand I would only need either an upper or lower mold.
A: Unfortunately, the molds were not designed to be used for grinding.
Q: Do you know if the gel can be used for sensitive teeth?
A: Individual tolerance can only be evaluated by the individual. Some people do experience reversible tooth sensitivity and/or gum irritation. Steps can be taken to minimize this, including decreasing the length of each bleaching session and increasing the amount of time between bleaching sessions. The remineralizing gel, included in the kit, is also used to desensitize the teeth and prevent tooth sensitivity.
Q: I understand this will not whiten implants but is this safe to use on them?
A: Yes, the whitening gel is safe for implants.
