Pre Care Treatment
Be prepared for your treatment:
Eating: Make sure you eat prior to your whitening treatment. We recommend waiting an hour before you eat or drink anything, besides water.
Dental Cleaning: To achieve best results make sure you’ve had a dental cleaning within 6 months of your treatment.
Piercings: Take out piercings that are in your mouth.
Sores/ Cuts: Be sure you have no sores or cuts in your mouth as this will cause discomfort
Post Care Treatment Now that your smile is brighter, let’s keep it that way!
First Hour: Drink only water and don’t eat anything for one hour after your whitening treatment.
First 24 Hours: For the first 24 hours after whitening, do not to consume food or drinks that are likely to cause stains. Such as blueberries, tomato sauces, beets, carrots, red wine, coffee, tea, colas, etc.
White Spots On Teeth: In some cases you may see white spots on certain areas on your teeth. These are typically caused by calcium deposits or very porous teeth. These will normally disappear within 24 hours.
White Spots On Gums: Should you have any scrapes or cuts on your gums you may see some white spots and/or feel some sensitivity during your whitening session. 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. If sensitivity persists, use a toothpaste developed for sensitivity.
FAQ Teeth Whitening
Can teeth be whitened if I had composite bonding done to there teeth?
With respect to the bonding it is applied in a specific color and any stains that have occurred over time will be removed. The color of the bonding cannot be changed and the whitening gel will not harm the boding material.
Can I do this treatment if I have crowns, caps or veneers?
Yes, it is safe for crowns, caps and veneers, and stains will be removed during whitening, returning to their original colour.
There are quite a few products available on Amazon that seem to be the same whitening system as yours using led light trays but at a far lower price. Can you explain the difference between your product and others on the market sold for much less?
The lights you see on Amazon and Ebay do look the same as the my light, however they are not the same. Almost all of these lights use 1 LED that is either blue or white, my light has 5 blue LED lights. The light was designed to use the same LED nanometre range as the table top light – 450 470 nm, the other lights do not use this light frequency as it was custom designed and manufactured.
After an in-studio teeth whitening session, can I swish my mouth out with water?
Yes – you can swish! Just no drinking anything but H20 for the next 60 minutes. The gel remains inside the tubules and continues to whiten. No consumption of any staining food or beverages 24 hours as the tubules are still resealing.
If I have canker sores or open sores, etc. in my mouth is it still safe to do whitening?
It is not recommended to proceed with the treatment if you have canker sores as it may cause discomfort. Note: the whitening gel will not harm the canker. Peroxide has been used on dental patients to heal oral tissue.
How does the product work on sensitive teeth? Any pain been experienced?
Everyone’s teeth have a different level of sensitivity so it is hard to say if zero pain will be experienced. A small percentage of people will have minor discomfort in their mouth and this normally dissipates within 10 minutes.
What does it taste like?
It tastes a little minty and a little like other whitening gels however the taste is quite subtle.
Will the spa or home light harm my teeth?
No, the LED light is designed to operate at room temperature narrower band of light used in Dental curing lights. The light frequency is above the UV spectrum.
Can I whiten during pregnancy?
I recommend that you contact your physician prior to whitening. No government issued restrictions currently exist.
What are the age restrictions?
The current age restriction is 12 and under.
Can I whiten if I have gingivitis?
If you have gingivitis and or periodontal disease you should consult your dentist prior to whitening.
Should I have a cleaning prior to whitening?
Yes if possible, and if you had not had a cleaning in the last 6 months I highly recommend.
Is there a Guarantee?
If you experiences pain that causes you to be unable to complete the session you will not be charged for the treatment. You will need to sign the consent form and note that you could not complete the treatment.
I recommend that you have teeth cleaning done prior to whitening. This removes the “film layer”on the teeth, providing faster results. If you have not had a cleaning the whitening gel has to remove the film layer prior to removing stains. This will reduce the whitening results for some patients. You do not have to have had a recent teeth cleaning, however, please note that results will vary.
