Whitening Best Practices with Invisalign®
One of the fantastic things about Invisalign is that you can whiten your teeth by using the Invisalign trays. Granted, you’ll need to obtain the appropriate whitening gel. Over-the-counter options that have an active ingredient ratio of between 10 to 20% are recommended, as stronger doses can cause severe tooth sensitivity. Of course, if you want the best, we offer Philips Zoom whitening gel that can be used with Invisalign.
Once you have acquired the appropriate whitening gel, you’ll need to clean your Invisalign tray completely before applying a few droplets of the gel. Make sure to apply the gel to the front portion of your tray, so it’ll be contacting the front of your teeth.
Since our Invisalign trays are custom-molded for your teeth, this will ensure that the gel is completely spread out to cover everything. Once you’ve inserted the tray, keep it in for 15 minutes and then you can remove for cleaning. You’ll also want to spend at least a minute rinsing out your mouth completely.
This form of tooth whitening can be repeated two times a week until your teeth have reached the desired brightness.
