Teeth Whitening Kit by Harvey & Coco FAQ

Q: What does the kit contain?
A: Each kit contains 10ml (10 x treatments) of the sophisticated ‘Pro-Gel’ peroxide free whitening gel, 2 x Thermo Trays, 5ml Whitening Accelerator Spray, 10 x Oral Finger Wipes and full detailed instructions with aftercare advice.

Q: How do you perform the treatment?
A: full detailed user guide is included, but in brief simply mold the gum shields to your teeth using warm water and apply the gel to the tray ready for application. Open a finger wipe, spray 2 x squirts of the Whitening Accelerator Spray onto the finger wipe and rub the front of your teeth (top and bottom) for 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, immediately insert the gum shields (loaded with gel) and leave in for 30 minutes. When finished, rinse mouth with water.

Q: How often do you perform the treatment?
A: Perform 1 treatment per day, or every other day (no more than 1 per day) for best results. For your first kit purchased, try to use the 10 treatments as close together as possible.

Q: How long do the results last?
A: This varies from person to person, depending on your diet and lifestyle. Results typically last around 6-9 months.

Q: Does the gel damage your enamel?
A: Your enamel has thousands of ‘pores’ (very similar to your skin) which is where stain particles collect, eventually turning your teeth a dull yellow. Our unique ‘Pro-Gel’ safely lifts the staining from within these pores without affecting your enamel or making you sensitive. The gel is 100% safe to use, even when swallowed (but try not to).

Q: Will my teeth become stained more easily after using the kit?
A: No. After 6-9 months (longer for some people), your teeth will start to gradually return to their ‘natural’ shade, as they were before you used the kit. There is no increased risk of staining.

Q: I have really sensitive teeth, can I use this kit?
A: Yes, it is peroxide free and ideal for those with sensitive teeth.

Q: Why does a dentist charge £400 for this treatment?
A: A number of reasons. The dentist will most probably take an impression of your teeth and then send it off to a lab to create custom fit whitening trays (expensive, and not 100% necessary to achieve good results). You are also paying for the dentists time and expertise. The gel’s/procedure’s used are often typically the same or very similar to what is found within this kit.

Q: What is the difference between this kit and ‘laser’ whitening?
A: During ‘laser’ whitening a strong chemical is manually painted on the front surface of the teeth and an LED ‘laser’ light is held over the mouth to speed up the ‘cleaning’ action of the gel (saving time). Laser whitening can be dangerous due to the risk of the heat from the LED laser damaging the nerves within your teeth, and also the strong chemicals damaging the enamel.

Q: What sort of stains will this kit erase?
A: The kit is highly effective on all types of staining including coffee, tobacco, red wine, discolouration from medication, and also from general ageing. Whitening your teeth makes you look younger, feel more confident and healthier in general.

Q: Does it work on false teeth (caps, crowns and veneers)?
A: The gel within our kits will lift any staining from the surface of the cap/crown/veneer and take it back to it’s original colour when first fitted. Patients with a mixture of natural and false teeth should monitor results after each treatment. Typically false teeth are ‘whiter’ than natural teeth, so if a patient uses a kit it will bring the natural teeth level with the shade of the false teeth. The gel is completely safe and will not affect the ‘cement’ used to secure caps, crown or veneers in place.

Q: My friend told me that only peroxide whitening kits work, is this true?
A: No. Advances in technology now means that non-peroxide whitening gel’s have become a LOT more effective. In tests we found that our ‘Pro-Gel’ peroxide free whitening gel, when combined with our powerful Pre-Whitening Accelerator Spray, achieved better results than most peroxide gels, without the pain or sensitivity. Peroxide kits can leave you with sore/burnt gums and severe sensitivity that can last for weeks.

Q: Who can use this kit?
A: Anyone over the age of 18 with good oral health can use our product. You should not use any whitening products if you are pregnant, lactating, have gum/periodontal disease, or suffer from generally poor oral health. If you suspect you have a dental issue, please see your dentist. Keep out of reach of children. If you have any questions regarding your oral health, please consult your dentist.

Q: Which ingredients are used to create the whitening gel and accelerator spray?
A: We only used CE approved ingredients within this product.
