Special trays (stents) are made to hold the agent to the teeth the amount of time these trays are worn depends on the type of staining and whitening method used.

The Facts about Whitening Toothpaste
This could be beneficial for removing new surface stains that develop from tea, coffee, and tobacco or plaque build-up. These tooth pastes only remove surface stains; they do not change the colour of the teeth. Some whitening tooth pastes (especially marketed for smokers) are more abrasive than others and can potentially cause damage to the teeth, these should be avoided.

- People who already have sensitive teeth may not be suitable for whitening.
- You may need to replace old fillings or crowns as they will not lighten and the colour difference may become more noticeable.
- Some teeth may not whiten evenly.
- Irritation of gums can sometimes occur if whitening agent is not placed correctly.
