- My light does not turn on or beep. What should I do? First check to see if your batteries are installed correctly. There is a diagram on the inside of your light. If they are installed correctly, replace the batteries as they may be the issue. If the light still does not work, please contact customer service and they will troubleshoot your issue.
- I cannot find the battery installation directions for my activating whitening light. Battery Installation Instructions: Remove the cap at the bottom of the Light by sliding the tab to "open." Hold the Light upside down with the blue light facing you. Follow the diagram inside the light to install the 4 Alkaline AAA batteries (included). Insert batteries from left to right shown in Fig. A. Replace the lid and slide the tab to "close". The light should beep to let you know the batteries are correctly inserted. Press the button to test to the light, and press again to turn it off.
- My light does not turn on (but it beeps). This means the light bulbs have gone out. Replacements are available for purchase online.
- There was no instructional booklet in my Luster Premium Pro Light kit. Where can I find a copy? Instructions for Luster Pro Light are available in PDF form online at www.LusterProLight.com under the product details.
- Do I have to do all the applications at one time? No. Luster Pro Light is designed to be convenient. You can do a few applications at a time to fit into your busy schedule. But, the more applications you do in a row, the more quickly you will see the results. we recommend performing 10-20 treatments depending on how much you have to whiten. You can do these treatments all at once or spread them out over a 7 day period.
- I experienced oral irritation with Luster Pro Light. What would you recommend? If the stain lifting serum comes in contact with gums or lips, wipe away immediately and rinse the area with water. The serum does contain peroxide and if too much touches the lips or gums irritation could occur. To prevent irritation, apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the gums and lips before beginning treatment. Stop using the product if irritation does occur. Irritation should subside in 3-7 days.
- My gums turned white after using Luster Pro Light. Why? A subtle whitening of the gums near teeth happens to some users. Stop using Luster Pro Light and begin treatments again when gum whiteness subsides in 24-48 hours. All this means is that you are more sensitive to the peroxide agent. When resuming treatment, we recommend following the Full Week treatment schedule which spreads the treatments over several days.
- Where can I find refills for the AcceleRinse and Stain Lifting Serum for Pro Light? Refill kits are available for purchase online at www.LusterPremiumWhite.com/shop or on Amazon.com. Our 2 Minute White can also act as a refill kit to Pro Light.
