~ General FAQ's ~
What is an impression?
A dental impression is used to provide an exact replica or imprint of the teeth and gums of both your upper and lower jaws. Two “horseshoe” shaped trays are used to load a specialised impression material that is a soft “play dough” like consistency. One at a time, these trays are placed into your mouth, allowed to set and removed from your mouth. These impressions are used with specialist dental equipment to fabricate your Custom Fit Teeth Whitening Trays.

What bleaching gel is included in my kit?
We source all of our genuine bleaching products from authentic professional dental suppliers. Many of which are only available to licensed and verified dental practitioners. Remember, there is no need for LED Lights or cheap gimmicks as we only offer whitening gel used and recommended by dentists.
Which Whitening Gel should I choose?
We offer the choice between two formulations and a variety of concentrations to suit everybody’s needs. See our ‘Which Product Should I Choose?’ page to assist in determining which product is best for you. Should you require any additional advice please contact us.
I have a bad Gag Reflex, is this best option for me?
We understand that people who gag may not feel comfortable having dental impressions taken. For this reason, we recommend purchasing one of our Complete Home Teeth Whitening Kits. These kits include 3x Thermoforming Whitening Trays and avoids impression taking.
How is a 'Custom Fit Tray' different from 'Thermoforming (Boil and Bite) Trays?
A Custom Fit Tray is an individualised and customised imprint of your teeth. The end result is two seamlessly fitting whitening trays (upper and lower) that exactly replicate your individual mouth. A Thermoforming Bleach Tray requires a plastic tray to be heated in boiling water than adapted, using your fingers, to your teeth. Although Thermoforming Trays are a great alternative to visiting the dentist they simply do not fit and adapt to your teeth as well as Custom Fit Tray. Clients often find that bleach may leak out of their Thermoforming Bleach Trays if they are not adequately adapted to their teeth therefore, causing irritation and sensitivity.
What happens if I lose or damage my Custom Fit Trays?
Please Contact Us as this will need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
There are a lot of businesses offering teeth whitening treatment how is 'The House of Mouth' different?
The House of Mouth is strictly based on a service modality centralised around professionalism and integrity. We only offer professional grade and authentically sourced products from genuine dental suppliers. Our staff our experienced and adequately trained and are currently working in or have worked within the industry either professionally or as auxiliaries. We simply wish to offer a revolutionary service, which is convenient, affordable and superior to our competitors. For this reason, we have 1000’s of happy and satisfied customers.
Do you offer Health Fund Rebates?
As our services and pricing are so competitive we do not currently offer HICAPS services – it’s important to know that many health funds do not (or very minimally) cover cosmetic services such as Teeth Whitening anyway.
