Teeth Whitening

 

We're so excited you've made the decision to brighten your smile with us.

Here are some helpful tips and FAQ: 

It is recommended that anyone under the age of 18 receive parental or guardian consent for the Professional In-Studio treatment.

Currently there is no regulation on whitening during pregnancy. Whitening sensitivities vary from client to client and pregnancy can result in heightened sensitivities among clients.

It is not recommended to whiten if you have gingivitis and or periodontal disease. In either case, please consult with your dentist prior to whitening.

We recommend you have a cleaning prior to whitening. This removes the film layer on the teeth, providing faster results. If you have not had a cleaning, the whitening gel has to remove the film layer prior to removing stains. This will reduce the whitening results for some patients. We will not refuse anyone without a recent teeth cleaning, however please understand that your results will vary based on the state of your teeth.

It is not recommended to proceed with the treatment if you have canker or open sores in the mouth as it may cause discomfort and pain during the treatment. The whitening gel will cause no harm to the canker or to the open sores as peroxide has been used on dental patients to heal oral tissue, however, we want you to be comfortable and enjoy your experience.

All oral piercings must be removed prior to whitening.

The gel has a subtle mint and slight peroxide taste. The gel taste is very comparable to other whitening gels on the market for anyone who has used other whitening products.

When bonding is applied to someone's teeth, it has been applied in a specific color. Any stains the have occurred over time will be removed from the bonding but the original color of the bonding will remain the same. The whitening gel will not harm or weaken the bonding but the gel cannot change the original bonding color, which can result in our client having mismatching teeth as some are whiter than others. It is important to understand this before your treatment begins.  We will do a shade match on teeth that do not have bonding for most accurate results.

There is no limit to how many professional in-studio sessions you can do in your lifetime. Be advised that teeth cannot be whitened beyond their maximum natural whiteness, which will vary client to client. Since the gel is pH neutral, it cannot harm the enamel. Once you have reached maximum results, your teeth will not get whiter. You can maintain whiteness by doing an in-studio session every 2 to 6 months pending on your stain levels.

You can do another session the following day (24 hours) minimum in between provided you have no white spots or soreness. If you experience white spots or soreness, it is advised to wait until any white spots have been disappeared.
