Shortly after you place your order in our online store or redeem a voucher for shipment, you will receive an email confirming your redemption and shipment information. Tracking information will be emailed separately within 1–2 business days of processing your redemption. Be sure to check your spam/junk email folders in addition to your regular inbox for these messages.
If you did not receive your tracking information (remember to check your spam/junk email boxes as well as your regular inbox), or if the tracking information shows no movement after 21 days or a misdelivery, please contact our support team by clicking here and submitting a support ticket.
We process and ship orders as they are received. Therefore, your order cannot be cancelled once it’s been placed, because it’s already on its way to you.
If you’ve provided an incorrect shipping address on your order/redemption, you must wait until the package is returned or confirmed to have been delivered to the wrong address before a reshipment can take place.

How fast you reach results will depend on several factors, including, but not limited to, pre-existing staining, the strength of your natural tooth enamel, all of the instructions in the kit being followed, etc. Even the foods and drinks you consume before and after each application can have an effect on your overall results. We recommend not smoking and avoiding staining and acidic foods and beverages during the entire length of treatment and within 24 hours after your full treatment (if you must consume staining foods/beverages, try doing so with a straw).
You may see results in as little as 1–3 applications if your tooth enamel is very porous, you have little to no pre-existing staining, and you follow the recommendation of avoiding staining foods and beverages during your treatment.
Results may last 6 months or they could last upwards of two year. A wide variation exists because people have different habits. The more staining foods and beverages one consumes, the more he/she smokes, etc., the shorter the duration of results. Other factors include how porous a person’s teeth are and/or how much pre-existing staining there is.
As the gel gets into the pores of your enamel, the peroxide in the gel will open clean out stains, thereby making the pores wide open and very accepting of staining. To seal in your results, we recommend using Remineralizing Gel or our Minerals™ Enamel Booster pen to replenish the essential minerals of your tooth enamel that can be diminished during treatment. Both of these products work great to seal in your desired results, too!
Generally, tooth sensitivity is only experienced with highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel. Our products use carbamide peroxide gel, which does not typically cause tooth sensitivity. The home whitening kit comes with a remineralization gel, which eliminates any sensitivity that you may experience as well as strengthens your enamel.
Our gel is formulated with carbamide peroxide and typically does not cause tooth sensitivity. People with existing sensitivity, recently cracked teeth, micro-cracks, open cavities, leaking fillings, or other dental conditions that cause sensitivity may find that these conditions increase or prolong tooth sensitivity (or “zingers”) during the first 24–48 hours after treatment. If you experience zingers, try using a sensitive toothpaste to ease the discomfort. Brush your teeth with sensitive toothpaste until the sensitivity goes away. Wait until the zingers are gone before starting your treatment again. We also recommend using our Remineralizing Gel or Minerals™ Enamel Booster to help prevent or eliminate tooth sensitivity.
Teeth whitening will not work on artificial dental work including crowns, veneers or composite fillings. The gel will only whiten natural teeth.
We recommend consulting with your dentist before beginning any at-home teeth whitening treatment. Home treatments can carry minor risks if you have poor dental health, wear braces, have had recent oral surgery, or are allergic to peroxide.
Most people will experience a mild, transient gum/lip irritation if the gel is allowed on the gums/lips. An allergic reaction to peroxide can manifest as burning of the gums and/or blistering of the lips, whether or not the gel touches the soft mouth tissue. If this occurs, discontinue use immediately, rinse the irritated area well, and consult your dentist or physician if desired.
Do not use if you: are pregnant/nursing, have poor dental health (decaying teeth, exposed roots, gum disease), wear braces, had recent oral surgery, or are allergic to peroxide. At-home treatments carry minor risks, and you should consult your dentist. Some people will experience reversible minor tooth sensitivity or gum irritation. This will disappear: 1) within a few days after discontinuing use; or 2) by decreasing the length of your bleaching sessions; or 3) by increasing the amount of time between teeth whitening sessions; or 4) by using the Remineralizing Gel more often.
Unfortunately, we are unable to issue refunds on products purchased from Groupon or LivingSocial (since we did not actually perform the original transaction).
Please read and follow all of the instructions that come with your purchase. If your product did not include instructions, please contact our support team by clicking here or visit the product page in our store to see if downloadable instructions are available. Because of the consumable nature of the gel and because every individual’s results will vary and will depend on many factors, we do not accept returns, we do not guarantee results, and we are not responsible for misuse of our products.
If you feel that you may have received a defective or expired gel, we would be more than happy to replace it upon verifying your purchase. Please contact our support team by clicking here and be prepared to provide your proof-of-purchase as well as the lot number and expiration date printed on the small white sticker on the outside of the gel/packaging (photos of the product may be required).
We recommend that no children under 14 years of age use teeth whitening products. This is because a child should have all of their adult teeth in for at least one year. Baby teeth and newly erupted adult teeth should not be whitened. Other things to keep in mind include the condition of the child’s teeth and gums, whether or not they are allergic to any of the ingredients in the whitening gel, and what type and strength of gel is being used.
Our Thermoforming Mouth Trays will form fit to your teeth when prepared per the instructions in your kit.
Remember to do the upper and the lower trays individually, starting from boiling the water. Keep in mind that everyone’s source of heat will vary and some electric stoves may not heat water evenly. Try to use a level burner with even heat when boiling the water. Remember to let the water rest for one minute, off-heat, after it comes to a boil. A tray should only be dipped in the water until it just begins to wilt—typically, this is about five seconds. If a tray is overheated, it may fold over and stick to itself. If this happens to only the back ends of a tray, it’s okay—the back teeth aren’t visible when you smile and you may still be able to apply gel to the rest of the tray in order to proceed with your treatment. If the trays did not melt enough, you can repeat the thermoforming process.
Replacement trays can be purchased here.
