Day White®

Day White® is a specialized take-home whitening treatment that has been designed for use during daytime hours.  Day White® offers an excellent alternative for people who would like to have a brighter smile but do not relish the prospect of wearing strips or whitening trays all night long.  In fact, Day White® treatment will only take one hour per day and is substantially less expensive than some in-office alternatives.

Day White® is an extremely user-friendly home treatment.  The kit includes whitening gel, a patented syringe, and special whitening trays.  There is nothing complicated, messy, or time-consuming about applying Day White®, and it can whiten the teeth by as many as fourteen shades in as few as 10 to 14 days.

How can Day White® help me?

Day White® utilizes proven technology to remove organic stains on the teeth and whiten yellowing dentin and enamel.  Day White® has been created with the wearer in mind and comes in several flavors.

Here are some advantages of the Day White® System:

  • Cost effective.
  • Custom-fitted trays.
  • Lower active ingredient concentration (means reduced sensitivity).
  • No radiation.
  • Pleasant flavors in a viscous gel.
  • Teeth whitened by as many as 14 shades.
  • 2-4 treatments weekly for 1 month, or once daily for two weeks.
  • Unchanged structure of teeth.
What are the main considerations before using Day White®?

It should be noted that Day White® should only be applied to healthy teeth.  Patients who have tooth decay or gum disease need to have these conditions treated prior to applying the Day White® gel.  Day White® may not remove inorganic or deep stains, so it is important to consult with your dentist to ensure that expectations are realistic, considering the current condition of the teeth.

Here are some important points about using Day White®:

  • Once the gel is on the teeth, do not smoke, eat or drink.
  • Consult your dentist before ordering refills.
  • Pregnant and lactating women should not use tooth-whitening products.
  • Avoid drinking heavily staining beverages such as red wine and dark sodas on the day of whitening.
     
How should Day White® be used?

Day White® is a healthy way to whiten teeth. The combination of carbamide peroxide and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (ACP) enables any imperfections in the surface of the teeth to be filled while the bleaching is underway.

Day White® is available in two concentrations (16 and 22% carbamide peroxide).  Your hygienist and dentist will recommend the type that is best for you and inform you of any differences. Each syringe is filled with enough gel to treat the teeth 8-10 times, so the results are under your control.

To use Day White®, simply place a small amount of the gel into the custom-made trays and apply to the teeth for up to 60 minutes daily.  When the time expires, remove the trays, and brush your teeth plus your trays.  Be sure to thoroughly clean the trays after every application.

Whitening will occur gradually over the course of the Day White® treatment, and the end result will be a pearly white smile.
