Teeth Whitening

  • Try whitening the upper before the lower to notice a difference
  • Avoid highly coloured food and drink for the first three hours after removing the trays.
  • Avoid carbonated and acidic drinks throughout the whitening period, these may make your teeth more sensitive.
  • Some sensitivity is to be expected but will settle down after a short period of time.
  • It is advisable to use sensodyne toothpaste or re-mineralisation gel in your trays if you suffer sensitivity.
  • The process may take three weeks or even longer for very dark areas.
  • Make sure the whitening gel is kept refrigerated.
  • To maintain the whiteness we recommend you whiten your teeth for one hour every week or at your own comfortable level of consistency
