Teeth Whitening with Invisalign (Video)
In this video we will show you how to do teeth whitening at home with your Invisalign trays. You will have to first purchase any over the counter whitening gel. We recommend any product that has between 10% to 20% active ingredient – anything above that may cause extreme tooth sensitivity. Here we are using Ultradent’s Opalescence 15% whitening gel easily purchased from amazon.com.
First clean your Invisalign tray and apply a few small droplets of whitening gel to the front portion and then place them on your teeth. It is not necessary to apply any gel for your back teeth since nobody can see them anyway.The Invisalign trays are tight and will evenly spread out the whitening gel over your teeth.
Any spots under the Invisalign attachments will also get whitened because your teeth are porous and acts like a sponge when absorbing the whitening gel.
After about 15 minutes, you can remove and wash the Invisalign tray then rinse your mouth rigorously. Do this about twice a week until the desired tooth shade has been achieved.
