Get ready to uncover the secrets of effective whitening that not only enhances the beauty of your smile but also promotes long-term oral health.
How to Correctly Apply the Whitening Gel
Place a small drop of whitening gel on each tooth on the front surface of the whitening tray.
⚠️ Remember that the application technique is more important than the amount of gel. Position the tray on your teeth and press gently to distribute the gel evenly. Use the tray with the gel according to your dentist’s instructions, and after removal, rinse your mouth and the tray well with running water.
Managing Tooth Sensitivity
If you feel tooth sensitivity during the treatment, use the S.O.S Fluoride gel included in your kit. Clean the tray and apply the gel in the same way as the whitener, keeping it in your mouth for two minutes. Then, spit out the excess without rinsing and avoid consuming any substance for 30 minutes. If sensitivity improves the next day, you can proceed with teeth whitening.
Diet During Treatment
Avoid foods and drinks with strong pigmentation, such as coffee, cherries, and red wine, to ensure the best possible result from your whitening.
Care After Whitening
- The color change varies from person to person and it is not possible to predict the exact result for each individual.
- If sensitivity persists, communicate with your dentist so they can adjust the concentration of the gel or consider other desensitizing methods.
- Use a toothpaste for sensitivity in the first few days, like Sensodyne, to reduce the risk of discomfort.
- Due to the possibility of sensitivity, avoid acidic, citrus, and cold foods during the treatment. Do not eat or drink with the tray and gel applied.
- Good oral hygiene is essential to prevent complications during the treatment.
- Smokers may notice nicotine stains and, consequently, less bright results than expected.
- The treatment usually lasts 2 to 3 weeks and should be done daily to be effective.
- It is not necessary to use the gel at the same time every day, but it is important to keep the tray in your mouth for at least 4 consecutive hours, ideally wearing it while sleeping. In the morning, rinse your mouth with water and wash the trays.
