Teeth Whitening Aftercare
Now that your smile is brighter, let's keep it that way. After your SunnaSmile session(s), there is some very important information to help you care for and maintain your new whiter smile.
For the first 24 hours after whitening, do not to consume food or drinks that are likely to cause stains unless you add our protect tray. These include: curries, beets, carrots, blueberries, tomato sauces, dark gravy, red wine, coffee, tea, colas, etc.
White Spots on Teeth
In some cases, you may see white spots on certain areas of one or more teeth. These are typically caused by calcium deposits or very porous teeth. These will normally disappear within 24 hours.
White Spots on Gums
Should you have any scrapes or cuts on your gums you may see some white spots and/or feel some sensitivity during your whitening session. These will normally disappear within 24 hours.
A small percentage of people will have minor tooth and/or gum sensitivity. This normally dissipates within 30 minutes. If sensitivity persists, use a toothpaste developed for sensitivity.
Touch Up Treatments
After your initial whitening session a 20-minute "touch up" session every 6-12 months is recommended. You can also purchase out whitening + aftercare gel and simply add to your toothpaste nightly to whiten and prevent restaining.
