- Q: Why do we recommend the Icing Teeth Whitening system?
A: Simple:The Icing Teeth Whitening line delivers powerful results with minimal sensitivity. Icing™ was developed by a dentist with the patient in mind. Icing™ is formulated with carbamide peroxide because the results last longer while preventing tooth dehydration that occurs with the use of hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide can also help prevent decay. Icing™ combines carbamide peroxide with a special desensitizing agent, potassium nitrate.
- Q: How can I maintain my whiter smile after a whitening treatment?
A: Following teeth whitening, avoid coffee, berries, red wine, curry, smoking and other teeth-staining items. Teeth are more porous for the first 24 hours after whitening and will easily stain from these food products. Drink beverages that stain teeth, such as coffee and cola, through a straw to help teeth stay white longer. If you forget and turn your teeth pink from a glass of red wine, simply re-whiten teeth for another 30 to 60 minutes. Proper brushing, at least twice a day, is one of the best defenses against staining and preventing new staining after whitening. An ultrasonic toothbrush is even more effective than a standard brush with results visible in as little as two weeks. Don’t be fooled, not all electric toothbrushes are ultrasonic.
- Q: Can I use whitening toothpaste with my whitening system?
A: Yes, but whitening toothpastes are designed to be abrasive and remove the top layer of enamel. They only remove stains on the outside of the tooth. Frequent use of whitening toothpaste may result in teeth becoming sensitive to hot and cold.
- Q: What about laser whitening?
A: Avoid whitening with lasers, high-intensity lights or heat. You will get the same results with gel methods and avoid dehydration of the tooth and increased sensitivity. The use of lights and lasers speeds up the whitening process and severely dehydrates the teeth. For many people, laser whitening is an incredibly painful procedure afterwards. Our formulas are powerful and usually whiten 3 to five shades in one 90-minute session.
- Q: How long is my whitening gel good for?
A: Whitening gel can be stored in a refrigerator and remain efficacious for up to two years.
- Q: I have a custom tray my dentist made me. Can I use those instead of the trays you provide?
A: Absolutely! Trays from your dentist are the best way to use a whitening gel. However, our kits do come with moldable trays that allow you to custom fit your own. When whitening, a custom fitted tray is superior to one-size-fits-all tray systems. Make sure the tray is scalloped along your gum line and not covering up your gums. This will prevent the uncomfortable burning sensation caused by the peroxide. Just like peroxide that cleans out a wound, peroxide on your gums will begin “cleaning” any bacteria. Excess peroxide can be irritating to gums if the peroxide is not removed. If you’re dentist has already provided you with trays - use those trays to whiten.
- Q: I’m not seeing a difference when I whiten?
A: Don't whiten top teeth and bottom teeth at the same time. This helps you see how well the whitening system is working. Whitening the teeth in sections also reduces any sensitivity you might experience.
- Q: Will whitening systems work on crowns, veneers, bonding, colored fillings and on teeth affected by tetracycline?
A: Porcelain crowns, bonding, veneers and and tooth colored fillings will not whiten – with any system. If possible, consider whitening teeth before having any visible tooth colored dental work completed. Or, if you have teeth that have yellowed and no longer match a crown(s) /veneers – then a whitening system is a great way to match your teeth to their whiter crown/veneer counterparts. Teeth stained by Tetracycline use can whiten – but this can take many sessions over a long period of time. Thicker enamel whitens more than thin enamel. Enamel is thinnest along the gum line and can look more yellow than the rest of the tooth. Bottom teeth have thinner enamel than top teeth and might not get as white.
- Q: I’m worried about sensitivity. Will your whitening products cause discomfort?
A: There are two potential areas of sensitivity in a whitening process: your teeth and gums. Icing™ and our other systems contain potassium nitrate. This is the same desensitizing agent found in toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. The high concentration in our whitening lines help to ensure no sensitivity or dramatically reduced sensitivity during and after the whitening process. Gum sensitivity is different. Just like peroxide that you pour on a wound to cleanse it of bacteria, peroxide that comes into contact with your gum line will begin to deep clean. If peroxide comes into contact with your gums, either because a gel has pushed past the whitening tray or a “strip” system is pressed too far above the teeth, it can cause irritation. Some people experience no irritation at all. If you see excess gel, wipe it away. If your gums whiten or if you feel a burning sensation both should pass relatively soon. Stop whitening and give them a rest, avoid acidic foods until the discomfort resides. Then, be sure to be mindful of removing gel from the gums next time you whiten. If you do use trays to whiten, be sure they are scalloped along your gum line but not covering them.
- Q: How much gel should I use?
A: A tiny droplet in each tooth impression of your trays is all you need. Using large amounts of gel in your trays can push the gel to the gums - causing a burning sensation and discomfort if not wiped away. It’s better to use less gel and whiten more than once.
- Q: How often can I whiten?
A: Your mouth will be your best barometer. The nerves in teeth are sensitive. If you are whitening too much then you may begin to experience sensitivity to hot and cold. If you begin to notice discomfort then avoid whitening for a while. Next time you whiten try using less gel or whiten for less time. Whitening sessions longer then 90 minutes are not effective. After 90 minutes oxygen is no longer being released from your gel.
FAQ PAGE PEAK ORAL CARE
You have TWO trays - one for the top and one for the bottom.
Heat water to near boil 160˚F (71˚C). Water should feel very hot when tested on inside of wrist area. Remove from heat source (e.g. cup in microwave). Holding tab, place trays in hot water for 3-5 seconds. Wearing heat-protective gloves is advised.
Immediately place trays in mouth and close lips tightly around the tab. Press tongue against the roof of the mouth and the back of the teeth. With a strong sucking action, suck out all the air and water, tightening lips against the front side of the teeth for at least 5 seconds. (If tray is too hot, immediately remove and start over from step 1.)
Open mouth and use fingers to press trays against inside and outside surfaces of teeth.
Remove and rinse under cold water for 30 seconds to set. NOTE: If tray does not fit the first time, repeat procedure with the same tray.
Using small scissors, remove excess material by trimming the tray to the gum line, following the shape of each tooth.
Brush teeth. Load ¼ syringe of Icing™ inside the trays, and should be on the front surface of teeth when tray is placed in mouth. Do not overfill trays as you only need a small amount of Icing. Focus on your front teeth as most people do not show their back teeth.
After placing trays into mouth immediately remove any excess Icing™ that is on your gum tissue, lips or other parts of your mouth using a tissue or cotton swab.
Icing™ should not be worn longer than 90 minutes during a single session. Test for any sensitivities for approximately 10 minutes before proceeding with full 60-90 minute session.
When finished, clean teeth and trays with soft toothbrush and cool water. Do not swallow the Icing™ whitening solution.
Save cleaned trays for next teeth whitening session.
- Do not use on patients with known sensitivities to peroxide products.After placing tray into mouth immediately remove any excess Icing™ that is on your gum tissue, lips or other parts of your mouth using a tissue or cotton swab.
- Use caution when handling hot water and tray. Check temperature before placing tray in mouth. Tray should be hot, but should not burn your skin.
- Not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.
- Store Whitening gel out of heat/sunlight. Do not freeze.

As tracking numbers get reused any shipping concern must be addressed within 60 days of the shipment date. Also, we suggest contacting your local post office or FedEx with your tracking information so that they can contact the postal delivery person.
