Whitening Home Care Tips and Information
|Everyone’s teeth brighten at different levels over varying periods of time. Usually, if trays are worn everyday for 30 minutes, you will notice brightened teeth in 2-3 weeks.
|Keep trays and whitening solutions away from direct sunlight and heat.
|Refrigerate unused whitening gel until needed for future touch-ups
|Coffee, tea, red wine, dark sodas, smoking, ect will cause teeth to stain more quickly and “touch ups” may be needed more often. Usually, a touch-up requires wearing the trays approximately 2-3 times to brighten to desired shade every 1-2 years.
|To help combat cold sensitivity and produce whitening results that may last longer, you may want to brush or rinse with a prescription strength fluoride.
|If you have cold sensitivity or gum or throat irritation, please discontinue whitening and contact a member of the Klement Dental Team at your convenience.
|You may want to avoid acidic foods and drinks while whitening teeth if it causes sensitivity to occur.
|Do not eat, drink, or smoke while wearing trays
|Results will vary per patient
