Teeth Whitening Care

What to expect after your Professional LED Teeth Whitening Treatment

First Hour

For the first hour after your appointment, you will be advised to not eat or drink anything besides water. 

24 Hours After your Appointment

For the first 24 hours after whitening, do not consume food or drinks that are likely to cause stains. Remember that after a teeth whitening treatment, the pores of your enamel are open and this makes them extra vulnerable to any stains. Avoid food with color such as, Beets, berries, tomato products, and/or chocolate. You will also want to avoid coffee, red wines, dark beer, and teas. 

White Spots on Teeth

In some cases, you may see white spots on certain areas of one or more teeth. These are typically caused by calcium deposits on very porous teeth. These will normally disappear withing 24 hours. 

White Spots on Gums

Should you have any cuts or scrapes on your gums, you may see some white spots or feel some sensitivity during your whitening session. These white spots can also occur from the whitening gel slipping from the teeth onto the gums. These will normally disappear within 24 hours. 

Sensitivity

A small percentage of people will have minor tooth and/or gum sensitivity. This normally dissipates within 30 minutes after your appointment. If sensitivity persists, use a toothpaste developed for sensitivity. 

Touch-Up Treatments

After your initial whitening session, it is recommended to come in until desired whitening is achieved. After desired whiteness is achieved, we recommend coming in within 3 months of your previous appointment for a 30-minute "touch up". You can also purchase our whitening + aftercare gel and simply add a whitening toothpaste to your routine.
