Lash & Body Fantasy LED Teeth Whitening Aftercare Instructions
In the first 48 hours after your teeth whitening, the pores in your tooth enamel are open and can absorb stains faster than before. As such, please observe the following recommendations:
Do not use any colored toothpastes, gels, colored mouthwash or home fluoride treatments.
If your daily homecare involves the use of Perio Rx or any Chlorahexidine, please wait 48 hours before continuing the usage of this product.
If post procedure sensitivity occurs, chew sugarless gum to reduce the peroxide levels, take an anti-inflammatory (Advil or Aleve) and brush with Sensodyne. Sometimes applying Sensodyne to your teeth for 5-10 minutes can relieve sensitivity.
Avoid extremely hot or cold liquids. These are dangerous to your white smile because they change the temperature of your teeth. This temperature change (hot and cold cycling) causes teeth to expand and contract, allowing stains to penetrate your teeth. Try cutting down on these types of drinks (including coffee and tea) or try drinking them with a straw to reduce the amount of time they are in contact with your teeth.
Avoid foods and drinks that are acidic. Acidic foods and beverages open up the pores of the tooth enamel allowing stains to more easily penetrate your teeth. Use a straw to help minimize the contact of these substances with your teeth. Once the pores close, which usually happens 24-48 hours after the procedure, you can resume your normal habits.
Cut back on drinking and smoking. Frequent consumption of alcoholic drinks and heavy smoking can reverse the effects of teeth whitening. Many alcoholic drinks such as wine have tannins that can stain the teeth. The same goes for the nicotine in tobacco.
Use smudge-proof lipstick to keep lipstick from getting on your teeth because regular lipstick can stain teeth.
