There are two types of tooth stains:
Intrinsic stain (internal stain) This means the stain occurs from within the tooth. This type of stain cannot be removed by brushing and flossing and sometimes bleaching may not be effective. Some causes of intrinsic staining are injury to the tooth, certain medications (such as tetracycline) taken during tooth formation or an excess fluoride ingested during the formation of teeth.
Extrinsic stain (external stain) This is staining of the tooth surface. Some sources of extrinsic stains are cigarettes, cigars, coffee, tea, or foods that contain a lot of spices. This type of staining can sometimes be removed by good tooth brushing habits or by professional prophylaxis (cleaning).
Can Clear Retainers substitute for Whitening Trays? ANSWER: MAYBE Retainers may hold teeth so tight, that the gel squeezes onto your gums, the Whitening Trays are designed with "WELLS" that allow the gel to rest on your tooth. Using gel with retainers may give you a spotty whitening job...whitening trays provide a more even whitening of the enamel.
Different stains require different solutions, therefore it is important to have a consultation with an oral health professional before trying a tooth bleaching product.
A small number of people experience temporary discomfort during the bleaching treatment series, such as gum or tooth sensitivity. These symptoms disappear within one to three days after completion of the tooth bleaching. It is important that the manufacturer’s directions are followed precisely when using an at home tooth bleaching kit. If any side effects are more than mild or persist, contact your oral health professional. Overall, tooth bleaching under professional supervision is an effective method for whitening the teeth.
Dental Bleaching: Questions & Answers
What is the teeth whitening process? - Teeth Whitening is actually a bleaching process that lightens discolorations of tooth enamel. This process uses an effective bleaching gel retained in a Custom-fitted Whitening Trays) that is worn over your teeth for 1 hour per day (NOT overnight) until you have reached your desired level of whitening. Included with these tooth bleaching systems is 22% professional strength bleaching gel (ONLY 10% - 22% Carbamide peroxide is available), Custom Whitening Trays, toothbrush, sensitivity toothpaste, portable pouch and application instructions.
How does dental bleaching remove stains - Dental tooth bleaching systems will remove most stains with a gentle action that whitens your teeth. As the active ingredient in the bleaching gel (Carbamide peroxide), is broken down, oxygen acts upon the stained organic deposits, which oxidizes them into a white color. This process makes the overall tooth color closer to its natural unstained color. Your tooth structure remains unchanged. Years of clinical tests have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of this tooth bleaching system. Over 95% of people treated achieve some level of tooth whitening. Crowns, bridges, bonding, and fillings only return to their original coloring; they do not lighten any further with professional tooth bleaching.
What is the treatment procedure? - You will make an impression of your teeth at home with our easy-to-use Personal Impression Kit. Ship it back to us and then will receive your Customized Trays in about a week. You will then apply our 22% bleaching gel inside the tray and place it over your teeth. You may wear the trays for up to 1 hour. You will see results the first day!!
Is the whitening process permanent? - For most people, the tooth bleaching treatment will last for many years. Your teeth have become stained in the first place from consuming the foods and beverages. Upon the completion of your initial bleaching process, your teeth are restored to their natural white color. Exposure to foods, drinks (especially coffee, colas and red wines), smoking and other consumables will gradually darken teeth again over time. You may want to periodically bleach your teeth. After an initial treatment, most people do touchups about once every 6-12 months.
How much bleaching gel do I get when I purchase a dental tooth bleaching kit? - You get enough bleaching gel to complete your whitening process (for average stained teeth). Each application (per bleaching tray) will use approximately 0.25ml of bleaching gel.
How Important are moldable bleaching trays? - Very Important. Having a moldable tray of the correct polymer material, shape, & transparency is essential to assure proper bleaching results. Non-moldable trays may cause inconsistent bleaching or spotting on the teeth and they are uncomfortable to wear. Dental tooth bleaching offers two types of moldable trays do-it-yourself thermoform (boil & bite) trays and professional tooth bleaching dental lab-created trays. Thermoform trays sit too close to the tooth and don’t allow for enough gel to properly rest on the tooth.
I already have a set of bleaching trays. Can I buy just the whitening gel from Dental Lab Direct? - Yes, we sell dental tooth bleaching 22% Carbamide Peroxide whitening-gel separately. This refill gel is the same strength that is sold in dental tooth bleaching kits and professional dental offices. It can be used with any dental tray in the same way as your previous whitening gel.
Why is dental bleaching better than other whiteners? - Simply put, other products do not work effectively. Some over-the-counter trays are not moldable to your teeth and do not hold the gel in the proper position. Many OTC whitening gels are not thick enough to stay in place and will leak out of the tray. Many OTC gels typically have less effective active ingredients or a lower concentration of active ingredients. Many professional dental whitening systems provide so little whitening gel that refills will be required to get the desired result. In short, the dental tooth bleaching system offers more effective whitening power for your money than any other system.
Is dental bleaching the same thing dentists sell me for $500 or more? - Yes, Our system uses the same active ingredients, percent concentration and methodology as those used in professional tooth bleaching products at the dental office. In fact many dentists sell dental bleaching to their patients. We provide you with Customized Mouthpieces and supply you with the highest quality, most effective bleaching gel exactly like the formula used in dental offices.
What causes tooth discoloration? - There are many causes. The most common include consumption of foods, coffee, tea, wine, sodas and smoking. In other words, our teeth naturally get more and more stained as time goes on and we continue to live our lives. NOTE - Tetracycline discoloration and artificial dental work, can be, but is usually not greatly responsive to dental bleaching.
Who may benefit from tooth whitening? - Almost everyone. However, there are some cases where treatment may not be effective. Tooth lightening is ideal for patients who have healthy, un-restored teeth and would like a whiter, brighter, younger looking smile. Tetracycline discolorations and artificial dental work, can be, but are usually not greatly responsive to dental bleaching.
Is it safe to bleach my teeth at home? - Yes, dental bleaching at-home bleaching is specially designed to be an easy-to-use system with detailed usage instructions. Over a decade of research indicates that whitening teeth with Carbamide peroxide is safe and effective. All of our products comply with FDA regulations.
How long does the bleaching process take? - Results are dependent upon each individual characteristics of each person and the daily wear-time of the mouthpieces, but many people see results after the first use. Maximum results occur after 5-10 cumulative bleaching hours.
Are there any side effects? - Some people experience temporary tooth sensitivity during treatment. Others have reported discomfort in the gums or in loose fillings. Gum irritation usually disappears within 1-3 days after beginning the procedure and always upon the discontinuation or completion of treatment. There are no other significant side effects.
NOTE - Pregnant or nursing women should not engage in dental bleaching.
Whitening Your Smile
How we look and how we perceive ourselves has much to do with our self-esteem. When the color of our teeth makes us embarrassed to smile, it's probably time to get our teeth whitened (bleached).
As one ages, teeth may darken from coffee, tea, smoking, berries and other substances that get into micro-cracks in the enamel, causing discoloration. Some people have gray or brown bands on their teeth caused by an early childhood fever or tetracycline medication taken when the tooth enamel was forming. In some parts of the country where fluoride is found in naturally high concentrations in the drinking water, individuals have developed teeth with bright white patches or dark brown blotches (mottled enamel or fluorosis).
Not everyone is a candidate for tooth bleaching. Teeth discolored from aging have the best results. If you have tooth-colored resin or composite fillings in your front teeth, they will not change color from bleaching and will stick out like a sore thumb after the procedure. If you would like to have your teeth whitened, call it to your dentist's attention at your next check-up visit. If you are not a good candidate, he or she can suggest alternatives such as bonding or porcelain veneers.
There are various options to whitening your teeth. Bleaching can be an in-office procedure (chair-side). It may involve several appointments of 30-60 minutes each.
Some toothpastes have added whitening agents and can be used as an adjunct to the other two procedures. In any case, there is no reason to ever again suffer the embarrassment of discolored teeth.
Upon receiving your Custom Professional Tooth Whitening Trays, a very small amount of tooth whitening gel from a pre-loaded gel-syringe are placed into them, and then placed over teeth. The trays are worn for thirty minutes to an hour, depending on sensitivity.
Trays are worn for the first 5 days, then twice a week to maintain desired tooth whitening. Compare ours versus the dentists versus the OTC (over the counter) type. You’ll easily see the value of Neon Brite’s products and services.

Teeth Whitening FAQs:
How does teeth whitening work? A whitening gel is placed in a custom fitted tray that fits over your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel, carbamide peroxide, is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel of your teeth and bleaches the colored substances. The structure of the tooth is not changed; only the tooth is made lighter and whiter. Please note: Crowns, Dentures and Bonding will not lighten, as this only works on the natural enamel of your teeth.
What is Carbamide Peroxide and how does it make my teeth white? Carbamide Peroxide is commonly known as "teeth bleaching gel". It is the bleaching gel used by dentists to whiten your teeth. It comes in a variety of strengths, with 16% & 22% strengths being the most common.
Our lab only carries the 22% Carbamide Peroxide Gel, which is a high-viscosity gel that is ideal for those who want extra whitening power for tough stains or faster whitening.
How can I do it myself for only $158.00? Basically, we'll send you some impression material so you can take an impression of your teeth. The material is a clay-type mold that you press your teeth into. After you take an impression of your teeth, you'll send this material back to our lab in the pre-paid postage envelope that comes with your system. Upon receiving it, our lab will make the custom-fitted teeth trays and immediately mail them back to you. Then you'll apply the 22% carbamide peroxide teeth bleaching gel inside the trays and place the trays over your teeth. You may wear the trays from 2 - 3 hours per day and usually within 5 days, your teeth should lighten anywhere from 7-9 shades lighter.
Are the custom trays the exact same trays used at the dentist office? Yes!

Why is your product better than other whiteners?
Simply put, other products do not work as effectively. Some over-the-counter trays are not moldable to your teeth and do not hold the gel in the proper position. Many OTC whitening gels are not thick enough to stay in place and will leak out of the tray. Many OTC gels typically have less effective active ingredients or a lower concentration of active ingredients. Many professional dental whitening systems provide a less percentage of carbamide peroxide. We should note that you can whiten your teeth with a lower percentage, but it takes a much longer treatment time in your mouth. Our 35% gel is HIGHLY effective. In short, we offer more effective whitening power for your money than any other system.
Is the whitening process permanent?
Once you reach your desired whitening level, typically within 7-10 days, the whitening should last several years. Of course, by eating different foods and drinking coffees, beverages, wines, etc., your teeth will gradually darken over time. After your initial treatment, we'd recommend doing a touchup every 4-6 months.
What type of guarantee does your lab offer? Simply put, if your teeth doesn't whiten to your expectations, we will refund 100% of your money back, no questions asked!

Teeth Whitening Toothpaste: Does it Work?
The shelves of every grocery store seem to be filled with teeth whitening kits and teeth whitening toothpaste. Though these pastes are quite expensive then our usual ones but they are much cheaper than professional whitening procedures. Today, an attractive and dazzling smile is what everyone wants. Whether you are a model, a receptionist, an actor or a flight attendant, you need to have a pearly smile to have a pleasing personality. More and more people are opting for professional teeth whitening procedures like bleaching, and the rest are using teeth whitening toothpastes. But the question is, whether these toothpastes can really whiten your teeth as they claim to?
Whitening toothpastes are perfect for people who either smoke or drink red wine, coffee and tea or eat lots of junk foods, as these are the things that stain your teeth and make it yellowish. There are a lot of whitening toothpaste brands available in the market, as the million dollar smile industry is booming. Whitening toothpastes are also advised to be used after you had a treatment for teeth whitening to prevent formation of surface discoloring on your teeth.
Whitening toothpastes are actually toothpastes with a very small concentration of Carbamide Peroxide. It is the main constituent of most of the teeth bleaching systems. They also have mild abrasives that remove some surface stains. Apart from this, some whitening toothpastes also have certain polishing agents and particular chemicals that may be more efficient in fighting against stains than the regular ones. The manufacturers of these toothpastes claim that with sustained and regular use, you will get a whiter set of teeth and a brilliant smile. It is true that whitening toothpastes do lighten your teeth, but the effect might not be as much as you hope. In fact the concentration of carbamide peroxide in such whitening toothpastes is so little that you can not expect them to do much for betterment of appearance of your teeth. However, they are a great way to preserve your whiter smile which you have acquired from dental bleaching.
The makers of these whitening toothpastes also offer you many other features to combat heavy competition. Some offer vivid white teeth while others have freshness and protection against germs. Some claim to make your smile admired by everyone of the opposite sex while others offer rejuvenating effects or long lasting whiteness or tartar protection whitening. And then there are all kinds of flavors! The options are wide and far. It is impossible to choose one toothpaste brand over another and the only way out is to try and experiment as results speak much louder than words. Do not forget to get your dentist’s recommendation before starting with any. Another thing to remember is that your tooth whitening toothpaste should also have fluoride for extra protection against tooth decay.
Though these toothpastes can’t really turn your brown teeth to pearly white but they sure can help you to maintain them in a better way.
