How white can I expect my teeth to whiten?
Most clients will achieve 4 to 8 shades whiter. The results vary as they depend on many factors including the quality, texture and thickness of your enamel. For best results, a dental cleaning is advised (but not required) prior to whitening to remove superficial stains from coffee, tea, tobacco and red wine.
Will my teeth be sensitive after whitening?
It is recommened that you use sensitive toothpaste (e.g. Sensodyne) for up to a week prior to your whitening appointment and up to a week after your treatment. Your teeth may be more sensitive in the first 12 to 24 hours after whitening so it is advised to avoid hot and cold beverages. An optional remineralization formula can be purchased to use afterwards to aid in the restoration of hydration lost during whitening.
Can I drink coffee, tea or red wine after my appointment?
It is advised to avoid these beverages as well as anything that will stain the teeth for 12 hours after your appointment.
Are results guaranteed?
Unfortunately results are not guaranteed as each individual's teeth are unique, as are the particular habits they have which may affect the whitening potential.
How many treatments will I need?
Each client is unique and results are individual. Most clients benefit from a one hour treatment initially. The Registered Dental Hygienist will be able to better advise during your consultation. The longevity of the results is also dependent on the client.
Can I whiten my teeth if I have fillings or restorations on my front teeth?
You can still receive the treatments (most do), however restorations and fillings do not whiten. It is advised that if you are planning on having them replaced, to whiten first and then have your fillings or restorations replaced afterwards as the dentist will match your new restorations or fillings to your natural teeth.
