What you need to know about teeth whitening
-The amount of whitening cannot be predicted or guaranteed.
- Teeth will not whiten past your genetic whiteness (what you were born with).
-Yellow or brown teeth with surface stains whiten easier than gray or blueish teeth.
- Striped or spotted teeth are also difficult to whiten.
- Filling, crowns or veneers will whiten back to the original colour they were when first placed.
- our whitening gel has adjust Ph (acidity) and conditioners to reduce teeth and gum sensitivity.
- If gel comes in contact with gums, tingling and white bumps (blanching) can occur; these are not harmful in any way and will disappear in 1-2 days with normal saliva.
- If you have fillings that are breaking down, decay in your teeth, erosion of the teeth, or exposed root surfaces due to periodontal disease, the gel will come in direct contact with these areas and may cause sensitivity during and after treatment. The sensitivity will go away within 1-2 days.
