Teeth Whitening

You do not have to do anything specific other than brush your teeth before coming in for your teeth whitening treatment. You may want to apply some lip balm just before your appointment as your lips will dry slightly. If you have naturally sensitive teeth it is recommended to use Sensodyne toothpaste for 1-2 weeks leading up to your appointment.

For the following 24 hours After Treatment you must:

  • Avoid any dark staining drinks like Tea, Coffee, Red Wine, coloured soft or alcoholic drinks and fruit juice.

  • Avoid all dark staining foods like bolognese, soy sauce, red meat, chocolate and all fruit except bananas. 

  • Avoid any foods or drinks that would leave a stain on a white shirt.

  • No Smoking for 24 hours, smoking a cigarette within the first 24 Hours will stain your teeth

  • Moderate use of electronic cigarettes is OK.

  • Avoid coloured toothpaste (red or blue) or Mouthwash for 24 hours.

  • Consume only "White Foods" listed below.
