Professional lab created trays
1 Remove the impression trays and material from the package.Your hands must be clean and dry before mixing the impression materials.Open one set of impression material (one container of blue putty and one
container of yellow putty).Quickly mix the two colors of putty together.Knead and roll the two colors together, like mixing play dough, until fully
blended into one color.Make sure that the putties are blended completely
into one color (not two colors swirled together).Total mixing time
should be less than 20 seconds.At 30 seconds, the material begins
to harden.Roll the material into a cylindrical shape and place in
the plastic impression tray. The material will set up in 3 minutes.
2 Take the tray filled with the impression material and place over the center
of your upper teeth.Push the tray over your teeth with firm pressure
while making sure that your teeth do not touch the plastic of the tray.Your teeth must be surrounded by the impression putty and not be touching
the plastic.Make sure that your teeth and gums sink into the impression
putty just past the level of your gums (your gums should be imbedded into
the impression putty about 1/2 of an inch). The impression material will
squeeze through the holes in the tray).Keep the tray in place over
your teeth for three minutes.
Please Note:If you have fixed dental
work (such as bridges and crowns/caps) take extra care not to get the impression
material under them.The impression material can setup under them
making the trays more difficult to remove.
Step 3 Once the impression
tray has been in place for three minutes, remove the tray from your mouth
while leaving the impression material in the tray.Do not remove the
material from the tray unless you need to retake your impressions.Rinse the impression with cold water and inspect.It is not necessary
that your back teeth (rear molars) are included in the impression.However, it is critical that
the front six teeth and gum line are clearly visible.The fit of your
custom trays will depend on how precise you create your impressions.If needed, an extra set of impression material is included.The same
tray may be used again if necessary.
Repeat the above steps
for your lower teeth.If you need to retake an impression you can
tear out the impression material and make sure you get it out of all the
holes in the tray.
|Once completed please place your impressions
in the original pre-addressed, prepaid shipping envelope, seal the envelope
and mail back to us via standard US Postal Service. When we receive your
impressions, we will fabricate your custom trays and return them to you

|TIP Making your Dental Impressions
for Professional Lab-created Mouthpieces - With the Professional, you
will need to make your dental impressions from the included professional
impression materials. These impressions are then sent to our dental lab
so that we can create your professional quality mouthpieces.Be sure
to mix the two types of impression putty together very thoroughly so that
it will harden properly after you have imprinted your teeth into it. After
mixing the putty together and placing it into the impression tray, bite
down on the tray so that your teeth are completely submerged into the impression
putty such that about 1/4 of an inch of your gums is included in the impressions.
Also when biting down, make sure that your teeth do not scrape down the
side of the plastic tray that hold the impression putty. Your teeth should
be completely surrounded by impression putty on all sides.Keep your
teeth embedded in the impression putty for 3 minutes to allow putty to begin
to harden. Do not remove the putty from the tray as you will be mailing
the tray with putty to our lab.

a pot of water and then submerge your mouthpiece into it for 5 to 15seconds.You will see the mouthpiece begin to wilt.NOTE -Keeping the mouthpiece submerged too long will cause it to shrink.
the mouthpiece into your mouth and press it against the front of your teeth
with your fingers and the back of your teeth with your tongue. Let it cool
and your mouthpiece is now perfectly molded to your teeth. NOTE - You will
only need to conduct the boil-n-bite procedure once for each mouthpiece,
not each time you conduct your whitening session.
Squeeze Whitening gel into
the front of your mouthpiece. You don't need to over fill it. Place mouthpiece
over your teeth for 1-3 hours.Repeat this process for both upper
and lower teeth once per day until teeth have reached desired shade of white.
|TIP Forming your Boil & Bite Mouthpieces
- You must form your mouthpieces in order to achieve the best results from
the Boil-n-Bite Whitening Kits.This is a very simple process of heating
the mouthpiece in hot water so that it becomes soft and moldable.Keep in mind that you do not need a perfect mold of your teeth for your
dental bleaching system to be effective.We provide an extra mouthpiece
in each kit so that you can experiment with this process if needed.To mold your mouthpieces you should bring a pot of water to a boil and then
turn off the stove to let the water begin cooling.While holding the
mouthpiece by its specially designed holding-tab, submerge the mouthpiece
into the water for approximately 10 seconds.This will make the mouthpiece
soft. After letting it cool just enough not to burn your mouth, place the
mouthpiece over your teeth (either upper or lower). Now press the mouthpiece
down onto the front of your teeth using your fingers while using your tongue
and teeth to press the rear of the mouthpiece to that back of your teeth.
If the mouthpiece seems to big for you, simply put it back into the hot
water and it will shrink to fit any sized mouth. Repeat these steps for
both upper and lower teeth. When the mouthpiece has cooled, test the fit
and repeat the above process if you need to adjust the shape of the mouthpiece.When the molding process is completed, cut the holding-tabs off of the mouthpieces
so that you can close your mouth completely when the mouthpieces are in
Teeth whitening tips and cautions
Whitening Gel Usage: Whitening gel is placed around the inside, front
of the mouthpiece. There is no need for the whitening gel to come in contact
with the back side of your teeth since they are not visible to others. Place
the mouthpiece over your teeth.You will notice that the whitening
gel squeezes so that full coverage of all teeth is attained.There
may be some additional gel that overflows out of the mouthpiece into you
mouth.Simply discard this overflow gel by spitting it out. You should
wear the mouthpiece for 1 to 3 hours per whitening session. You may decrease
your weartime or frequency of use if you experience sensitivities, although
you whitening gel will stay active for up to 4 hours.Some people
report watering of the mouth when whitening their teeth.This is a
normal reaction and tends to diminish as time goes on.You will need
to wear your mouthpieces for a total of 20 - 40 cumulative hours to complete
the process. These cumulative hours of weartime can be completed in consecutive
days or you may skip days if you like.It will not matter so long
as you complete your 20 - 40 cumulative hours. After completion of each
whitening session, wash your mouthpieces with water and store in a dry place.Be sure to keep your whitening gel refrigerated when not in use.There
are several things you can do to make you dental whitening activities more
effective and pleasurable. Take the time to read the below tips to make
your dental whitening experience as easy and effective as possible.
important: Please read before using
tooth whitening bleaching gel.
Work: Tooth Whitening (bleaching) gel will only whiten natural teeth.
It will NOT bleach (whiten), nor harm bonding, caps, crowns, bridges, fillings
or any other artificial dental work. You may have to have the dentistry
redone in order to match your new white teeth. Tetracycline (an antibiotic)
stained teeth or grayish teeth are more difficult to bleach and have a varied
prognosis. Exposed root portion of teeth which occurs with gum recession
will also not bleach. If you have amalgam (silver) fillings in, near or
behind the front teeth, long term bleaching can cause the surrounding tooth
to have a greenish tinge. Bleaching teeth which have a lot of translucency
(see thru) can cause the teeth to become even more translucent and may give
the tooth a darker appearance. It is important to consult a dentist if you
have any of the above concerns.
Sensitivity: Your teeth or gums
will most likely become sensitive. This is common while using all products
containing peroxide based gels and it is not harmful. In case of increased
sensitivity reduce usage time and/or frequency until the sensitivity subsides.
Due to the high prevalence of sensitivity, Just4teeth recommends the routine
use of UltraEZ desensitizing gel following bleaching.
Warnings: Keep bleaching gel out
of reach of children. Do NOT use if pregnant or during nursing. Do NOT smoke,
drink or eat while bleaching your teeth.
GEL SHOULD BE REFRIGERATED FOR LONG TERM STORAGE. Shelf life is 1year
unrefrigerated and 2 years refrigerated. Use only in accordance with these
for Professional Dental Whitening Gel
It is important that you apply the teeth
whitening gel properly so you do not waste any of the gel and that you experience
the least amount of sensitivity while using the gel.
1. Prior to Treatment:
Brush and floss just prior to bleaching
your teeth. The whitening gel is the most effective with clean teeth.
Try the trays in first without any beach to check the fit and
comfort. Make sure that the bleaching trays
are clean and dry before applying the whitening gel. Moisture reduces
the efficiency of the whitening gel and slows down the whitening process
2. Applying the Bleaching Gel:
When you apply the gel make sure not
to fill the trays. Place a SMALL drop(o) of tooth whitening gel half
way up on the inner front surface of tray (in the front of each tooth
in the tray). Do not spread the bleach around. Recap the syringe for
next treatment until empty. The average treatment
per arch requires approximately 0.5ml of whitening gel. We recommend
that you only bleach the front 6-8 teeth as no one sees the back teeth.
3. Inserting the Bleaching Trays:
Insert whitening tray in the mouth
over the teeth. Seat the tray firmly against the teeth. Wipe the excess
gel, which seeps over the brim of the tray onto your gums, by holding
the tray up with one hand, wipe the excess gel off of the gums with
your finger or tissue. Wear the tray with the gel as directed below.
that if you have not whitened before, use for 30 mins to 1 hour the
first time and increase the wearing time if there is little or no tooth
recommended wearing times are:
5. After Whitening:

floss and continue routine dental cleaning. Apply desensitizing gel
if your teeth become too sensitive - follow steps 1 through 4 again
using the desensitizing gel.
for Your Trays and Gel:
whitening trays with a toothbrush or Q-tip and cold water. Store trays
in the tray holder and gel in cool dry place away from heat and direct
sunlight. The gel may be refrigerated to prolong the shelf life, but
do not freeze.
15% or 16% can be used 2 to 4 hrs once or twice/day or overnight
while sleeping if no sensitivity
or Day White bleaching gel: use for 30 mins to 1 hr once or twice
per day (do not exceed 1 hr/application). Day White Bleaching gel
must only be used for 30 mins to 1hr.
- 35% only use for 30 min per day
As an average, optimum results are
achieved after 20-30 cumulative sessions of wear-time
Longer wear times create faster whitening
Faster results can be achieved with higher
concentrations of Carbamide Peroxide or hydrogen peroxide.
