Congratulations! You are about to begin a similar teeth whitening procedure performed only in dental offices for hundreds of dollars. Dr. George started the home teeth whitening craze worldwide, when he developed this professional home technique in 1989. Since then, over 8 million have enjoyed similar in-office, professional results at home, for a fraction of the cost!
Dr. George’s Dental White® is intended for COSMETIC purposes only, and is NOT to be used as a medicine or a drug. It is not recommended for individuals who have braces, ill health, recently completed gum surgery, have bad gums or decayed or sensitive teeth, exposed roots, jaw joint problems, periodontal disease or allergies to the ingredients. Do not use tobacco products during bleaching sessions. Do not use during pregnancy. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN! This product should not be used by children under 18 without approval of a dentist and parental supervision. In case of accidental overdose, do NOT induce vomiting and contact a physician and/or poison control center immediately. Do not use this product in any other way other than as described in the instructions. Do NOT attempt to use any household bleaches to increase product strength.
The surface of your teeth may seem smooth, but if you look under a microscope, there are noticeable pores. Stain-causing foods and drinks get into these pores causing teeth to darken over the years. The active ingredient in Dr. George’s Dental White® is hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is extremely small in size and easily enters your tooth’s pores, following the same route as stain-causing foods and drinks. It takes several minutes for the peroxide gel to be absorbed by your teeth, thus the necessity for custom trays. The trays prevent saliva, with its peroxidase enzyme, from causing the peroxide to form regular oxygen and water. Therefore, inside the tray, active oxygen is released, and the tooth is lightened by the actual conversion of colored compounds to colorless compounds. The teeth can be whitened in 2-3 weeks. The Dental White™ process is not only a more effective method, but a safer one – due to the reduced treatment time.
MOUTH TRAY FITTING INSTRUCTIONS
See www.DrGeorges.com/Videos for a video demonstration (of tray fabrication, and syringe filling)
The Dental White™ kit comes complete with two applicator trays; one is for your upper teeth, and one is for your lower teeth. Each mouth tray you are about to fit will conform to your teeth and gums producing a custom fit.
The Practice Run: Fill a pot with 3”of cold water. Hold the tray by the very top of the tab with the “U” shaped channel facing you. Place the tray into the water being careful to keep your fingers out of the water. Lift the tray straight up from the water by the tab and use your fingers to support the back of the tray. Immediately place the tray over your teeth and perform the following:
NOTE: Make one tray at a time. Fit the upper one first. Place a mirror nearby, for assistance. Someone else timing you will make it more accurate, and easier. Do NOT proceed any further until you are comfortable with the practice run.
Caution: Once the tray is heated it becomes extremely flexible. When placing it in your mouth, be careful not to allow the edges of the upper rim of the “U” shaped tray to touch together.
NOTE: The tray will retain its shape by keeping it at room temperature and by protecting it from direct NOTE: The tray will retain its shape by keeping it at room temperature and by protecting it from direct sunlight. Treat the upper teeth first for 2-3 weeks, leaving the lower teeth as they are, in order to monitor your progress. Alternatively, you can wear both upper and lower trays at the same time, but you must first fabricate the lower tray against the upper TRAY, instead of your upper teeth. To do so, use a thin coat of Vaseline over the outer, biting surface of the upper tray, to prevent the lower tray from welding to it, after it has been lifted from the hot water, during its fabrication.
Apply the gel into the tray using the refillable syringe. To fill the syringe, remove the tip cap first, and then remove the plunger completely from the barrel. Unsnap the cap and place the plunger end of the barrel over the nozzle/nipple of the Dental White™ gel bottle cap, and squeeze until the syringe is full, and replace the plunger. If you apply the gel directly from the bottle, you can easily expel excess gel. If you do, then smear out the excess gel with your finger, to prevent foaming and drooling!
