How it Works: Instructions
- Step 1 - Brush and Floss your Teeth lightly, be careful not to abrade the gum tissues. Caution do not rinse with any mouth wash.
- Step 2 - Bite into the impression material to create a tooth impression. Wiggle the teeth back-and-forth once the teeth are centered within the impression material. This wiggling will create space for the whitening gel. Note that there is an upper, larger side, and a lower, shorter side, to the dual arch tray.
- Step 3 - Place a thin layer of the whitening gel into the mold; Do not to overload the tray. Do not let the gel come into contact with gums. Wipe off any excess with a Q-Tip.
- Step 4 - Apply vitamen E Q-tip on your gums.
- Step 5 Place the tray into your mouth for at least 30 minutes to 1hour. Do not eat or drink for 1 hour after whitening.
- Step 6 - Follow the whitening process if you have tooth sensitivity use Gel Kam; you can place Gel-Kam in the tray or brush directly onto the teeth then let set for 3 minutes at the end of the 3 minutes spit out the excess material but do not rinse out the material.
- Step 7 - Repeat process daily; discontinue the bleaching gel if sensitivity occurs; if tooth sensitivity occurs do continue the Remineralization gel or Gel Kam twice daily until the sensitivity is gone.

- Our Whitening gel is worn in custom-fitted trays that you can use without a dental lab. The trays fit over your teeth for use of 1-2 hours per day, or even overnight. Many people notice an immediate whitening of their teeth within a few hours of bleaching.
Teeth Whitening Options?
Patients / clients have several options today to achieve a whiter looking smile, including tooth whitening (bleaching), bonding, veneers, and crowns. Tooth whitening is usually more simple and the most conservative option. The most common form of tooth bleaching is the at-home bleaching system followed by whitening performed at the dental office. Rockstar White provides whitening systems for both dental professionals and directly to the consumer'}.
Why do teeth become stained?
Teeth can become stained due to several factors:
- The most common source of teeth staining comes from dark colored food and beverages and habits such as smoking.
- Excessive ingestion of fluoride during tooth calcification can also cause teeth to become discolored.
- Severe trauma can cause staining in non-vital teeth; This occurs when blood in the ruptured vessels in the pulp oxidizes within the tubules, causing the tooth to turn darker.
- The use of tetracycline during tooth development can cause teeth to turn gray, yellow or brown.
How does teeth whitening work?
- We get rid of the unwanted color in teeth by using highly oxidative products such as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide.
- Hydrogen peroxide will break down yielding free radicals that penetrate enamel and dentin; it is the free radicals that dissolve stained molecules.
- Most studies suggest that concentration of carbamide or hydrogen peroxide, and time, is the most important factors for achieving the quickest and most profound color changes in client’s -5.
- We do not use any animal products in our gels.
- Our products are NOT tested on animals.
- Our products are made in the USA.
- Our products are kosher.
- Our products contain natural ingredients.
- Glycerin Carbomer, Carbamide Peroxide
What is the active ingredient in retail or take-home type whitening systems?
- Carbamide peroxide is commonly utilized in take-home products because it is a more stable form of hydrogen peroxide.
- Carbamide is created by combining hydrogen peroxide with urea.
- Combining these ingredients allows a slow release of the hydrogen peroxide as the carbamide peroxide in the whitening material breaks down to form hydrogen peroxide, ammonia, and urea in the presence of saliva, heat, or water.
- Studies abound that show that there is no evidence of harmful long-term effects from bleaching on enamel, dentin, or gingival fibroblasts -6. The use of high concentration hydrogen peroxide has not been shown to damage the surface finish -7 or hardness, of restorations -8.
- It is recommended that pregnant or lactating women refrain from use.
- If gel comes into contact with eyes or skin, flush immediately with warm water.
- If ingested in large quantities contact physician.
- Continue routine dental visits.
Is the pH of a gel important?
Yes! Our gels are neutral in their pH (6-7). We do this to prevent the destruction of the tooth structure during the whitening process. Some manufacturers use lower pH levels, more acidic, to try to decrease whitening times but this will increase tooth sensitivities and decrease the hardness of the tooth.
Generally, a pH of 5.5, or lower is capable of softening the surface 3 micrometers to 5 micrometers of enamel within only a few minuets. If left undisturbed re-hardening may occur over a period of hours. Enamel, while in this softened state, is vulnerable to physical abrasive forces leading to irreplaceable loss and thus tooth wear and chemical erosion resulting from acid attack.
Will brushing the teeth prior to whitening my teeth quicken the process?
- The carbamide/hydrogen peroxide gels flow freely through enamel and dentin but can be inhibited by debris and plaque on the teeth therefore, it is important that all superficial debris on the tooth is removed prior to whitening.
- Fluoride affects the whitening process by inhibiting the release of carbamide peroxide.
- If using fluoride toothpaste, rinse your mouth well with water to remove as much fluoride as possible.
I Already Have Trays. Can I purchase just the Gels?
Yes, we sell our high-energy teeth whitening gels to dental professionals for take-home use for their patients in the same 10cc syringe. Purchase of additional gels can by made through the internet or at your dental office.
What is Tooth Sensitivity?
This is temporary and will subside unless there is an undiagnosed cavity.
Bleaching-induced tooth sensitivity is thought to occur because enamel is permeable and, as such, allows the active bleaching agents (e.g. hydrogen and carbamide peroxide) to enter the tooth, where it diffuses through the dentin and reaches the pulp. There it can either directly stimulate the pulp, making it sensitive, or release minute bubbles of oxygen inside the tooth-particularly inside the dentin tubules-which creates pressure. This form of transient sensitivity subsides upon cessation of bleaching.
Prevalence of dentin hypersensitivity varies from 4% to 57%, with a figure of 15% fairly consistently reported. The permanent canines and premolars are the teeth most frequently affected, and the sites on those teeth most commonly affected are the front and neckline regions of the teeth. Normal saliva contains salts, which help close the pores of the teeth and helps to rehydrate the teeth. If you do experience sensitivity that is more than mild in nature, we recommend the use of Sensodyne Toothpaste or the use of Gel-Kam. 4% sodium fluoride (over the counter products available at most drug stores) to quicken the desensitizing process.
Why are my gums sensitive?
- You are applying too much gel to the trays. If gel settles on the gums during whitening period it can cause sensitivity. If gel spills out of trays onto gums, WIPE GEL OFF GUMS with a tissue.
- Vitamin E swabs are found within the take-home system.
- Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant, which binds to free radicals. Hydrogen peroxide brakes down into free radicals and when these free radicals come in contact with your gums or soft tissues, like the lips, can irritate them.
- The use of the vitamin E will deactivate the free radicals and you should feel comfortable within 3 to 5 minutes.
How Should I Store my Gels?
- Store gel in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight.
- May be refrigerated. No freezer.
- 2-year shelf life.
How do dental office procedures differ from take-home types?
Dentists use higher concentrations of whitening materials because they protect the soft tissues (gums) with barriers. In-office bleaching utilizes whitening gels ranging from 30% - 50%. Since these solutions are stronger than at-home gels it is very important that the dental office isolate and protect the patient’s soft tissues with a rubber dam or paint-on dam.
Light, laser or heat activates most in-office bleaching gels. The newer systems incorporate the use of Xehalgon lamps to initiate the bleaching gel which speeds up the process.
In-office gels work quicker due to a higher concentration of free radicals, which penetrate the enamel, causing the tooth to release more oxygen bubbles. Our professional in-office bleaching gels contain a photo-initiator that is activated by lights or lasers.
Why are lights used in the dental office?
Light is used to accelerate the whitening process. Light is absorbed, scattered, transmitted, and reflected by our professional whitening gel. Our professional whitening gels have been developed for use with light sources that include the addition of an activator and a reflector to improve light absorption and to reduce tooth heating. Our activator and reflector are able to absorb light and accelerate the molecular breakdown of carbamide to hydrogen peroxide.
Why do I lose the initial whiteness several days after whitening?
Typically, a rebound of two shades of color will occur on or around the 7th day post cessation of the whitening treatment -2. This is why it is important to have a Take-Home product for professional systems
- Gives them additional shade changes;
- Allows them to avoid the rebound effect.
The initial take-home treatment would be at day 3-4 post professional whitening, provided the patient was not experiencing any sensitivity. If the client were experiencing any sensitivity the take-home process would begin only after the sensitivity was gone.
When will our product fail to change the color of teeth or take a long time?
Our product will not change the created color on porcelain crowns. If the crowns have become stained our product will remove these stains. Teeth stained by tetracycline during the time of tooth development, teeth that are blotchy from over-dose of fluoride during the time of tooth development must be compliant and willing to use the take-home treatment over many weeks, as short as 4 and as long as 18 weeks. Gels that have been stored or transported incorrectly will lose potency if allowed to reach temperatures over 85 degrees, then the gels performance will be less than anticipated.

How it Works: Whitening Facts
Rockstar White uses tried and true dental products with long safety records. Since whitening’s introduction, millions of people have successfully undergone the whitening process with studies showing no long-term changes in enamel hardness and gingival health.
Do Not Use If:
The Rockstar White whitening experience is not for pregnant, nursing, children under age 14, or uncontrolled diabetics. If you have severely stained teeth from fluoride use, or tetracycline use, your results may be limited.
The whitening solution may come in contact the gum tissue and in rare cases may cause slight inflammation or whitening to the gums or the gum line (blanching). The easiest way to avoid this issue is to limit the amount of whitening gel within the impression material to the upper 1/3 portion and removing excess gel within the impression with a cotton applicator or Q-Tip. However when blanching does occur please apply Vitamin E gel (oral quality) to the affected area and the tissue will be returned to normal within 10 to 20 minutes. Vitamin E can be used on the gums before the whitening process as this will avoid any possible risk of gum irration. However, Vitamin E can also be used as an "as needed" basis when gum irritation occurs.
Caution: most mouth rinses and certain foods (spicey, or acidic) as well as abrasions from eating or cleaning the teeth can predispose you to gum irritation.
Dental Work and Whitening:
Rockstar White’s products will have no negative impact on dental work. The process will not however, change the created colors of these dental materials Whitening can help remove stains from dental work.
At Home Treatments:
At home teeth whitening treatments have risks involved and you should consult your dentist. Some people will experience reversible tooth sensitivity and gum irritations. This will disappear: 1. Within a few days after discontinuing use. 2. Decreasing the time you bleach your teeth. 3. Increasing the amount of time between bleaching sessions.
Tooth Sensitivity - Got fluoride?
Tooth sensitivity is a common side effect of peroxide based teeth whitening; Especially, the first 24 hours after a whitening session. The sensitivity is generally self-limiting. Application of our after care products will eliminate the sensitivity more quickly and is available to our clients for an additional fee.
Instructions for Fluoride Use:
The use of .4% fluoride typically will take care of tooth sensitivities; Severe cases can take up to one to one and a half months to eliminate. Typically the use of fluoride can be safely used twice a day, at bedtime and after breakfast, time periods where you won’t be consuming foods for at least 1-hour post fluoride application. To use our gel, brush on the gel for 1 minute then expectorate the excess without rinsing out the excess. Please consult your doctor or pharmacist if you suffer from any condition that the manufacture considers at risk for the use of fluoride, such as kidney problems. Fluoride will not reduce or eliminate hot sensitivities to the teeth; your dentist must treat hot sensitivity.
It is recommended not to eat or drink for 2 hour after a whitening treatment. Avoidance of dark, acidic beverages such as: coffee, tea, colas and smoking for one week following the treatment is recommended. If you normally consume these products and avoiding them is something you probably won’t do, then use touch up treatments daily during this post-whitening week.
