BEAMING WHITE PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING?
Although uncommon, some people can experience some tooth sensitivity during the first 24 - 48 hours after the whitening treatment. People with existing sensitivity, recently cracked teeth, micro-cracks, open cavities, leaking fillings, or other dental conditions that cause sensitivity may find that these conditions increase or prolong tooth sensitivity after the treatment. If you experience tooth sensitivity after the treatment, you can use Sensodyne toothpaste to ease the discomfort. Brush your teeth with this toothpaste until tooth sensitivity goes away.
WILL MY PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING BE PERMANENT?
The longevity of your teeth whitening treatments depend greatly on the types of food, beverages and other oral care post treatment. Exposing the teeth to various staining agents, such as coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine, colas, citrus drinks and fruits, etc. can accelerate the regression of teeth color.
However, heightened oral care and additional treatments can ensure your teeth stay white and bright!
WHAT WILL MY TEETH WHITENING RESULTS BE?
Your results will last depend on 2 main factors:
1. Your habits
2. The porosity of your teeth
If you expose your teeth to staining agents such as tobacco, coffee, red wine, tea, colas, etc. on a
regular basis, your whitening results will not last as long. If you have naturally porous enamel, your teeth will be more vulnerable to staining agents and your teeth will get stained again sooner than the average person. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing ahead of time how porous your teeth are. Generally speaking, if you have porous enamel and you expose your teeth to staining agents on a regular basis, your results may last for only 6 months. If you have non-porous enamel and you don’t expose your teeth to staining beverages on a regular basis, the results may last for up to 2 years.
HOW SOON CAN I EAT AND DRINK AFTER PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING?
Do not eat or drink anything except water for the first hour after the treatment because the gel opens the pores of the enamel and makes the teeth very vulnerable to staining agents. You can resume your normal habits 24 – 48 hours after the treatment is complete.
Also, be aware that drinks and food are not the only things that can stain our teeth when the pores are open; lipstick, for example, can stain too. Do NOT apply lipstick soon after whitening your teeth.
CAN I BE ALLERGIC TO TEETH WHITENING?
Some people are allergic to peroxide but are not aware of it. If you had the treatment done
and a few hours or a day later you have a blister on your lips, you are probably having an allergic
reaction to the gel. Buy liquid vitamin E in any drugstore and apply it to the blister until it goes away. It generally goes away within a couple of days by itself. If it does not, please reach out to us!
WHAT SHOULD I AVOID AFTER PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING?
1) Avoid extremely hot or cold liquids. These are dangerous to your white smile because they
change the temperature of your teeth. This temperature change (hot and cold cycling) causes
teeth to expand and contract, allowing stains to penetrate your teeth. Try cutting down on these
types of drinks (including coffee and tea) or try drinking them with a straw to reduce the
amount of time they are in contact with your teeth.
2) Avoid foods that are acidic. These foods open up the pores of the tooth enamel allowing stains
to more easily move into your teeth. If you are drinking fizzy drinks or iced tea, you should use
a straw. The caffeine in these drinks as well as the tannins in tea can stain the teeth. Using a straw can help minimize the contact of these substances with your teeth.
3) Cut back on drinking and smoking.
Frequent consumption of alcoholic drinks and heavy smoking can reverse the effects of teeth whitening. Many alcoholic drinks such as wine have tannins that can stain the teeth. The same goes for the nicotine in tobacco. If you cannot quit drinking and smoking entirely, at least try to do it in moderation or lessen the frequency.
4) Use smudge-proof lipstick.
After going through teeth whitening, you should consider switching your current lipstick for the smudge-proof kind. Some kinds of lipstick tend to cling to the teeth, and the pigments by which lipsticks are made can contribute to the discoloration of your teeth.
