Teeth whitening CARE
No brushing teeth or flossing within 4 hours of appointment.
Eat before, you won’t be able to eat for at least 2 hours after.
Laser whitening appointments last 1.5-2 hours. Please plan ahead accordingly.
Avoid drinking beverages (other than water) and eating food for the next 2 hours.
Do not smoke or chew tobacco for the rest of day (at least.)
Any sensitivity is typically gone within 24 hours. You may choose to purchase desensitizing gel or take a mild pain reliever. Please let us know at booking if you will be requiring a sensitivity treatment, as it adds 20 minutes to your appointment.

The soonest you will be able to come back is six months from your appointment, and we strongly encourage you to book in order to keep up maintenance on your smile. These are spaced out to prevent long term sensitivity and keep your enamel healthy.
It’s best to plan whitening appointments before gem appointments or at the same time if you are planning on whitening.
Come in with clean teeth.
Eat before – you will not be able to eat for at least 2 hours after the appointment.
Don’t eat for 2 hours (including gum) and eat only soft foods for at least 12 hours.
