Help after your laser teeth whitening
How to keep your NEW white smile
Even though your Led Blue Light teeth whitening treatment from Smile Tec 360 will be lasting a long time and be highly effective – you will benefit by following a few rules which relate to what you drink and eat during the first 48-hours after your treatment.
You are likely to be thrilled by the amazing results achieved by the Led Blue Light teeth whitening process – so you will want to ensure that your teeth continue to look pristine and radiantly bright – to avoid damaging the terrific work performed by the treatment.
During the initial 48-hours after treatment your teeth will be highly absorbent. This is because to be effective the Blue Light whitening treatment will have opened the micro pores of your teeth.
It will take a day or two for these to return to their normal state – so, to avoid undoing the whitening process performed by the treatment you should exercise a little care over what you eat and drink and by trying to refrain from smoking.
Blue light teeth whitening ‘after care’
For the first 48-hours following treatment you should avoid:
What you CAN eat and drink in the period following treatment
Maintaining good dental hygiene
Led Blue Light teeth whitening is purely a cosmetic treatment and will never replace the need to look after your teeth by ensuring that you always practice good dental hygiene. Food or drink contains various sugars and starches that can be damaging to your teeth.
By brushing your teeth at least twice a day using good quality toothpaste, especially after eating, will help to protect your mouth from harmful bacteria that cause tooth decay and cavities. Good dental hygiene will also prolong the long-lasting effects of your Blue Light teeth whitening treatment.
Many foods also contain harmful acids that can erode tooth enamel, but regular brushing will help protect you from the effects of these erosive substances.
The less time was damaging fermentable carbohydrates (sugars and starches), and acids are allowed to remain on your teeth the more likely you will be to maintain a healthy mouth.
Time is of the essence, so you should always brush your teeth as soon as you can after eating. Persistent exposure to acids leads to irreversible loss of dental hard tissue caused by erosion.
Drinks including fruit juices such as orange, apple and grapefruit contain acids.
The calcium, phosphorous and fluoride contained naturally in your saliva can however help preserve your tooth enamel.
