It's All About Prep TIPS FOR SUPERIOR RESULTS Achieving a stunning smile involves some very important steps before and after every session. Pre Care Treatment Eating Make sure you eat prior to your SunnaSmile whitening treatment. We recommend waiting an hour before you eat or drink anything, besides water. Dental Cleaning To achieve best results make sure you've had a dental cleaning within 6 months of your treatment. Piercings Take out piercings that are in your mouth. Sores/ Cuts Be sure you have no sores or cuts in your mouth as this will cause discomfort. Post Care Treatment First Hour Drink only water and don’t eat anything for one hour after your whitening treatment. First 24 Hours For the first 24 hours after whitening, do not to consume food or drinks that are likely to cause stains. Such as blueberries, tomato sauces, beets, carrots, red wine, coffee, tea, colas, etc. White Spots On Teeth In some cases you may see white spots on certain areas on your 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. Sensitivity 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 to 12 months is recommended. This could be at home or in our studio.
