Post Whitening Care With Your Leicester Dentist.


Teeth whitening is a quick and easy way to boost your confidence and give you a brighter, happier smile. With two options available here at Hallcross; the one hour Zoom laser treatment or the home whitening kit, you can do whichever one suits you best. Its important post whitening to be careful what you eat or drink so as not to stain your freshly whitened teeth. Avoid ‘darker’ food and drink if possible such as tea, coffee, red wine, red pasta sauces, ketchup and mustard. Also avoid and tobacco products as these are also very likely to pick up staining as your teeth are porous after whitening. The less dark foods you consume, the longer your bright smile will last!

Some people suffer with sensitivity after treatment. If its a little uncomfortable, we recommend that you clean your trays to remove all of the gel and pop some sensodyne in each ‘tooth’. Wear for thirty minutes or so and they should help ease the sensitivity so you can enjoy your lovely white teeth!

The most important thing to remember is that you should only ever ask a dental professional to whiten your teeth. I’ve blogged about this before and can’t stress enough how important it is to only let your qualified dentist or hygienist carry out the treatment for you. It’s been in the news again last week about unqualified beauticians providing clients with the treatment- this is dangerous and can cause problems with your oral and general health. Come and see us for a free cosmetic consultation and we can discuss your options and put a plan into place!
