PRE & POST TREATMENT
Prior to you appointment
You do not have to do anything specific other than DO NOT brush your teeth 3 HOURS before your teeth whitening treatment. You may want to put some lip balm on just before your appointment as your lips will dry slightly. (Though we have more than enough to share)
We do however recommend your usual 6-12 monthly regular visit to the dentist, so just go whenever you are due.
During your appointment
You will be given the link to the Treatment Consent Form for you to read over and sign, confirming that you are happy to go ahead with the treatment.
Your FDA Certified Teeth Whitening Specialist will go through everything with you, do a consultation and answer any questions you may have.
You can sit back, relax and watch TV. We then insert the cheek retractor, take a shade measurement and have a look at your teeth to make sure everything is OK to progress with the treatment.
We will apply the protective base along gums then whitening gel on your teeth and activate the laser light which will start the first 15 minute session.
After the first session is completed we will reapply a new layer of teeth whitening gel and start the second 15 minute session.
Repeating as necessary, depending on services selected.
We remove the cheek retractor and you can see your dazzling new white smile in the mirror.
