Dr Song Professional Teeth Whitening Kit 44% Carbamide Peroxide Review
I’m a crest white stripes kind of girl. While I didn’t want to deter from them since I know they work, I got an offer to try Dr. Song’s teeth whitening system. I received a full set of mouth guards that custom fit (like if you purchased a mouth guard), tooth whitening formula, paint brush to put on the tooth whitening formula & LED to assist with the whitening. The only thing not included was instructions. Luckily after contacting customer service, I was directed to their website.
First, this is a long FIRST process. You have to boil water to get the mouth guards to fit nicely. It’s worth the effort to have them fit comfortably. Next step is painting your teeth. Instructions recommend .5ml but I found you could put out A LOT less. Once you paint your teeth, you put the guard in and wait 15 minutes to 4 hours. You then just add the LED light for 15 minutes to start. I only used the kit for 15 minutes to see how sensitive it would make my teeth. The next day I was fine. You can view the pictures below for results- not bad!!
The kit itself gives you a full year of whitening. You can purchase additional sensitive paste to help with any sensitivity to the whitening formula.
Dr Song Teeth Whitening Kit includes:
• 8 large syringes - good for 50 applications
• gel applicator brush - for easy application of whitening gel
• LED Blue Light Accelerator - for acceleration of whitening process
• moldable teeth trays
•Good for over 50 applications, professional teeth whitening take home kit.
•44% Carbamide Peroxide, Gel Applicator, White LED light, & thermoform trays
•Meets USP standards & FDA compliant
Safety Information: Maximum strength. Do not use if you have sensitive teeth or you may experience discomfort.
Step 1: Place the tray over the upper teeth without placing the tray in boiling water. Practice with your tongue on the roof of your mouth and touching the inside of the tray. Suck the air from the tray. This contours the guard to the inside surface of the teeth. Repeat with lower tray.
Step 2: Bring water to a boil. Pour the water into a cup and let sit for 1 minute. Dip the tray into the water for 5 seconds. Make sure the edges do not fold onto each other (occurs when dipped for too long, if this happens, reshape tray back to original form, allow to cool and try again).
Step 3: Lift the tray vertically from the water using the tab. Carefully and quickly place the tray around the teeth and then immediately perform the procedure outlined in step 1.
Step 4: The tray can be reformed multiple times by dipping them again into hot water, repeat until satisfied.
Step 5: Once you are satisfied with the fit, trim the front tab away from the tray with scissors.
Whitening Treatment Instructions:
Please do not rush the whitening process. Going slowly and achieving results in the long run is the best way. Keep the use of gel to a minimum, less is more. Keep the gel away from your gums as they may irritate them/cause temporary bleaching of gums.
Step 1: Brush and floss just prior to bleaching your teeth. Dispense .5 ml of gel into a small bowl and using the applicator brush, apply a thin layer of gel to the front teeth only, keep the gel away from the gums. Do not whiten the back teeth, since no one can see them.
Step 2: Insert whitening trays in the mouth over the teeth. Immediately wipe any excess gel off of the gums. Wear the trays for 15 minutes and up to 4 hours if a stronger treatment is desired. If sensitivity or irritation occurs, wait 24 hours between treatments and use less gel. Repeat process daily as needed.
Optional: If you have a LED tray light, you can place it over the trays and use it for 15 minutes at the start of each session. Make sure to take out the clear plastic safety disk in the battery compartment before attempting to turn on.
Final Step: Gently remove any excess gel that remains on the teeth.
If you need faster results, mix the gel with a small amount of water before applying as water/saliva can activate the whitener. Shelf life of whitener is approximately 12 months upon receiving when stored properly in a cool, dark place.
Ingredients: carbamide peroxide, water, glycerin, carbomer, potassium sorbate, disodium EDTA, flavor
Remineralization Gel Instructions:
Use the remineralization gel after each teeth whitening treatment to eliminate any sensitivity or use as often as needed/desired.
Step 1: Brush your teeth each time before using the remineralization gel. The gel is most effective on clean teeth.
Step 2: Make sure that dental trays are clean and dry before applying remineralization gel into them. Moisture reduces the efficacy of the remineralization gel.
Step 3: Apply a small amount of remineralization gel around the bottom interior of the dental tray.
Step 4: Position the dental tray over your teeth and press gently so that the remineralization gel covers the entire surface of your teeth. Wipe off any overflow gel. Wear dental trays as needed from 30 minutes to 4 hours. Overnight applications are acceptable.
Step 5: After your remineralization session, clean the dental trays with warm water and toothbrush.
