    FOR FURTHER TIPS ON USING COLGATE® MAXWHITE ONE PROFESSIONAL; WHITENING TRAY FABRICATION AND MINIMISING IRRITATION, PLEASE SEE THE DENTIST IN-PACK INSTRUCTION LEAFLET.

    • This depends on the effect you're looking for and the condition of your teeth. Normally you will need to treat your teeth once a day from 3 days up to 2 weeks. Your dentist will be able to advise you further on this.

    • Tooth whitening is not permanent and may need topping up from time to time. Top-up kits are available from your dentist. The effect of Colgate® MaxWhite One Professional should last for at least one year, but depends on how well you care for your teeth and what you eat or drink. Ask your dentist for their opinion before you start treatment.

    Your dentist will discuss with you what shade of whiteness you would like. They may show you a shade guide to give you an idea of what is achievable. You can stop treatment once you reach a shade you're happy with.

    • Colgate® MaxWhite One Professional contains hydrogen peroxide. When this breaks down, it releases oxygen. Oxygen gets into tiny grooves in the teeth's enamel surface and removes stains.

    • Colgate® MaxWhite One Professional is pH neutral. This means that it won't damage the enamel structure of your teeth.

    • Having tooth whitening at your dentist is safe and effective. Only a dental professional can legally carry out the first application of tooth whitening products containing more than 0.1% hydrogen peroxide.
      It's also reassuring to know your treatment is being supervised and that you can be given specific advice tailored to your individual needs.

    • No. Treatment must be initiated by a dentist. The first application is made at a dental surgery by a dentist, or a specially-trained dental hygienist or dental therapist.

    • The most common side effect of all whitening treatments is sensitivity. Your dentist may recommend using a toothpaste like Colgate®Sensitive Pro-Relief for sensitive teeth to help with this. Some people get sore or uncomfortable gums, to avoid this don't overfill your tray with gel. Contact your dentist if you're worried about any symptoms.

    • Whitening treatments are not available on the NHS. The price will be set by your dentist - ask about the cost before starting treatment.

    • You have to be over 18 years old to be treated with Colgate® MaxWhite One Professional.

    • Your dentist will show you how to fill your trays to the correct level. It is important not to overfill them. If excess gel oozes out of the trays, your gums may feel sore. Look at the leaflet supplied with your kit for further instructions.

    • You can obtain extra Colgate® MaxWhite One Professional top-up kits from your dentist. Additionally, whitening toothpastes such as Colgate® MaxWhite One may help the effect to last.

    • It is best to stop smoking and to avoid tea, coffee, red wine and cola drinks as these can stain teeth. You should also avoid highly coloured foods such as curry or beetroot. Take good care of your oral health - brush your teeth twice a day, floss and avoid sugary snacks.
