Hey is it available in India
Teeth whitening is available in India. We are not too familiar with the processes locally, but it should be very similar. Best to speak to a dentist locally for advice.
I can make these trays. It takes 5 minutes to make and they charge $300.00 at
the dentist office. Yeah rite….🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
How do you make these?
Is it comfortable sleep with this on?
It is a bit odd at first, but you quickly get used to it.
Going through the process at the moment, my pocket is £350 lighter though 🥺
@Hao S lol same
@Hao S how please?
@Claire online idk, I told my dentist I want whitening and he said it’s for free so I did it.
@Hao S Oh I see, cool i’ll do that thanks!
Did the process work for you?
What material do you use to make tray?
Different materials can be used depending on the manufacturer. One of the most common is ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA).
How long does the dentist take to make these trays? so let say I go to the dentist and they take my teeth impressions, how long do I have to wait to get the trays?
It can be within just a few days. Normally about a week.
I want my teeth whitened before I go through 18+ months of orthodontic treatment, which will render the tray useless. Can I simply, but carefully, put the gel directly on the teeth and hold my mouth open until washing it out?
No. Whilst you could have trays and whiten your teeth before the braces, you are much better to wait until your orthodontic treatment is complete. Because during that treatment your teeth will move and may expose different parts of the tooth which were not successfully whitened first time. Whitening after braces will ensure a consistent and best result. Plus your trays should then be suitable for many years.
Wait i got retainers that I still wear from braces. Is that gel/product over the counter and if it is could it be used with the retainers
If you are in the UK, you will have to get it from your dentist. You should be able to use your retainer as the tray for whitening.
So in the morning when u take it off, you shouldn’t eat for 30mins?
Ideally you want to wait 30 minutes after brushing and flossing before you eat or drink
@Electric Teeth is it ok to drink with guard in?
I was told by my dentist to put really small dots. Is that correct. Your dots look way bigger? What’s ur advice for the size?
You only need a small amount. Follow your dentists guidelines.
How are they different from usual drugstore strips? Do trays make them more white?
It depends on your location and the rules around the strips available from the drugstore. In the UK for example the % of whitening agent in the normal whitening strips is incredibly low compared to the gel/trays available form the dentist.
In the USA for example, it is quite different, the strips are stronger and more like the gel for the trays from the dentist.
The stronger the whitening agent, the quicker and whiter they will become. Although everyone’s teeth have a limit to how white they will actually turn.
I can’t get a boner after using these. Is that normal? My wee wee is now like a gummy worm
Were do do you get the jel from?
From a dentist.
I have a veneer is it suitable for that or should I just leave that space empty?
Veneers can’t be whitened. So yes, the space in the whitening tray that your tooth with the veneer fits needs no whitening gel.
My upper teeth near gum part still yellowish colur, where as teeth clour from middle to down got white colur. I mean teeths top part ( near gum)is still yellow colur. I tried to put the gel directly on tooths upper side too and placed the tray, but still no use. Can uou pls help ?!!. But this problem not happend with under jaw teeth. Issue is only with upper jaw front side teeth. Also wanted to ask, can i drink water or any juice etc while tray is in mouth?!. Because my doctor told me to use this tray all over at night, so ehen i woke up with thristy ,can i drink water?!, the gel will not go inside body with water ?!!
I can’t comment on why your tooth is still yellow in places. It is likely you need to continue the whitening for longer to achieve the result you want.
You should avoid drinking when using the trays as this just washes away the whitening gel and dilutes the effectiveness.
If you wear at night, take out first thing and then have a drink. 👍
When getting a customised teeth whitening tray, will having some teeth missing have an impact on the effect of the whitening process? Specifically with how the mould will look?
And lastly, is there a difference between buying a customised teeth whitening tray online instead of getting one from a local dentist?
It will likely look similar to the one in the video Kieran. Where the teeth are missing the tray will fit close to the gum, with no real gap so you apply the gel only in the places where the teeth are. Missing teeth won’t affect the whitening process.
The main difference with getting one from a dentist is you can be assured of the quality and fit. You can’t get the whitening gel online (in the UK at least) you have to go to the dentist.
Don’t do it!
I did it for 10 days just like my dentist said and it didn’t work, I also took really good care of my teeth, I didn’t eat anything with color, didn’t drink coffee didn’t drink alcohol and didn’t smoke.
I even rensed my teeth with water everytime that I ate just to make sure
It’s an scam, don’t waste your money
Very unusual for it not to work. What gel were you using and the strength? How long were you wearing the trays/gel for per day?
If we have one molar crown teeth then ?
You can still whiten the teeth if you have a crown on a molar tooth. The crown won’t whiten though. So either you will need to leave the crown a different colour or have the crown replaced.
