RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PATIENTS AFTER TEETH WHITENING
Teeth will be noticeably whiter after the treatment, but the final effect will be observed about 2 weeks later. The duration of the whitening effect depends on individual predispositions, diet, and oral hygiene.
1. Oral Hygiene
The whitening effect lasts about 2-3 years, depending on the diet and how the patient cares for their oral hygiene. To slow down the re-staining process, consider repeating the tray-based whitening after about a year.
Do not eat or drink for 2 hours after the treatment.
Maintain a white diet for 2 weeks – avoid smoking, drinking coffee, strong tea, cola, red wine, berries, etc.
Avoid acidic foods and drinks for one day after the treatment.
If tooth sensitivity occurs, rinse your mouth with a solution of baking soda (two teaspoons per glass of water).
Don’t forget about dental check-ups every 6 months and professional cleaning to remove deposits and tartar.
If you have fillings in the front teeth, consider replacing them about 2 weeks after whitening to match the new shade.
