How to Prepare for Your Treatment
To improve the results of your whitening treatment, we recommend you take the following steps beforehand:
✔ Schedule a checkup and teeth cleaning with your dentist
✔ Start using a sensitive toothpaste a few weeks before your treatment
✔ Avoid consuming dark, sugary and acidic foods and drinks
Our whitening treatments are safe, effective and affordable. If you have any questions or want to discuss your options, we’re happy to help.
What To Expect During Your In-Office Whitening Treatment
On the day of your whitening treatment at Forest Lawn Dental Centre, one of our dentists will examine your teeth to make sure they’re healthy and strong. They’ll then discuss with you how white you want your teeth to be and formulate the whitening gel accordingly. After, a mould will be made or your teeth to ensure that the whitening trays are a perfect fit for your teeth.
The concentrated whitening gel will then be placed in your custom tray and applied to your teeth for 30 to 60 minutes under a curing light to maximize its effectiveness. Once the whitening gel has finished curing, the dentist will rinse off your teeth and schedule a follow-up appointment if necessary. The treatment is straightforward and only takes one to two hours to complete.
What You Should Know About Our At-Home Whitening Treatments
Our at-home whitening kits are easy to use, and you’ll start to see results in just one to two weeks. Unlike many over-the-counter whitening treatments that can cause increased tooth and gum sensitivity, our specially formulated whitening gel will brighten your teeth without weakening them.
In addition, store-bought whitening kits include generic trays that aren’t designed to perfectly fit over your teeth. This can lead to uneven results. By contrast, our professional at-home whitening treatments include custom-designed trays that fit your mouth and will provide superior results.
How To Make Your Results Last Longer
Once you’ve professionally whitened your teeth, there are things you can do to keep your smile looking radiant. Your results will last anywhere from several months to several years, depending on your habits.
If you want to keep your teeth looking their best, you should:
✔ Keep up with your oral health care routine
✔ Avoid foods and beverages that stain teeth such as red wine, coffee, cola and tomatoes
✔ Use a whitening toothpaste to help remove surface stains
✔ Quit smoking
✔ Visit the dentist for regular cleanings
If you minimize the external factors that cause teeth to yellow, it will help keep them white for a long time to come.
