Teeth Whitening Aftercare
Teeth will continue to brighten for 24 hours after treatment.
Be careful of foods and drinks with lots of coloring.
Rinsing after meals and drink is recommended for the first 24 hours.
You can eat and drink right away because stain x was applied to the teeth.
If sensitivity occurs later take Tylenol/ Advil and coat (not brush) the teeth with toothpaste.
Do NOT brush or use mouthwash directly after treatment, the bristles of the toothbrush will be too abrasive for the dehydrated enamel and mouthwash coloring will stain the whitening process.
If the gel touched the gum and there are white lines…ensure they will go away within 24 hours and you can place vitamin E oil over those areas.
Some teeth have natural markings in them, the whitening will enhance that for the first 24 hours but they will then settle back into the normal color. There are natural pigments in their teeth that have just been heightened due to the treatment. Once the teeth are re hydrated (24 hours) those markings will fade.
