 Glamour Beauty Studio

 

 

 PRE & POST TREATMENT



You do not have to do anything specific other than brush your teeth before coming in for your teeth

whitening treatment. You may want to put some lip balm on just before your appointment as your lips will

dry slightly. (we supply this  in the clinic anyway)


It is not necessary to have your teeth cleaned and scraped at the dentist prior to your whitening treatment,

we do however recommend your usual 6 months regular check-ups at the dentist.



WHEN YOU ARRIVE


You will be greeted by a friendly technician. The technician will go through everything with you, do

consultation and answer any questions you may have.


You will sit back and relax in the soothing environment. We will insert the cheek retractor, take a

shade measurement and apply a seal barrier. 


We will apply the whitening gel 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 tooth whitening gel and start the second

15 minute session.


We remove the cheek retractor and you will see your new dazzling white smile in 

the mirror.

  The Complete Guide to Teeth Whitening

 

 

 

 

An educated patient is our best client.  To better prepare for your upcoming appointment please read

this guide to understand what to expect from your in-office teeth whitening appointment. After

performing thousands of procedures, we’ve learned quite a bit. Below is everything you need to know

about your appointment.  For best results it’s important to have a recent dental cleaning. The whitening

gel cannot penetrate through plaque and calculus.



The Whitening Treatment


Teeth Whitening works by exfoliating stains from inside your teeth to bring them back to their natural

color.  


Teeth whitening is a process that uses a 25% hydrogen peroxide gel, the gel is activated via a special UV

light. 


Your lips and gums are completely covered and protected throughout the entire procedure.  Whitening

is considered one of the safest procedures available in dentistry.  The procedure consists of three to four

15-minute sessions.  A fresh layer of whitening gel is applied after each session as the old gel is removed

from your teeth.



Whitening Process - Teeth Whitening Results cannot be predicted


We will measure your initial shade, and the final shade to see how many shades lighter you got.  But there’s

no way to predict how many shades lighter your teeth will get beforehand.  The whitening process removes

stains that we all accumulate over the years from coffee, tea, juice, soda, fruits and berries, sauces, salads etc…

The final shade is your natural tooth color, which is unique for everyone.  The only way to find out is to try the

in-office teeth whitening for yourself.  In our recent office study (August 2013) of 100 random clients, the

average client got results of 7.3 shades lighter.  Some clients got as many as 15 shades lighter, while a small

percentage (<5%) got only 2 or 3 shades lighter.



Before & After - The whitening results will look natural.


Some clients desire for their teeth to look as white as Chiclets.  Others will tell us that they want their teeth

to look natural, not too white.  Since the whitening process removes stains to bring out the natural tooth color,

the results after in-office whitening will always look natural.  Some people are blessed with having a natural

Hollywood smile.  While others, even many famous Hollywood actors, require veneers to get those pearly

whites to look more like Chiclets.



Results are Instantaneous


You will see results immediately after the whitening procedure.  We’ll be able to take your new tooth shade

and measure how much lighter the teeth have gotten. However, the teeth immediately after the whitening

are dehydrated, as they’ve lost moisture.  There’s  a bit of a rebound as the teeth regain their moisture over

the next several days.  This is also why we recommend not to choose the shade for any dental work that same

day. 


If you plan to proceed with any cosmetic work such as veneers or crowns we generally suggest waiting a

week before picking a shade.



Crowns, veneers and bonding won’t change color:


Any previous dental work does not change color.  Crowns and veneers are made of porcelain, the shade of

which cannot be changed. A dental bonding is filling, the color of which is also picked before they're

placed, thus they cannot be lightened. That doesn’t mean that you should not do whitening if you have

crown, veneer, or a filling on a front tooth. Often the color of  the restorative work is actually lighter than

the rest of the teeth.  Over the years the natural teeth may have gotten stained or the shade was never

matched perfectly in the first place.  You have the option to look in the mirror after each session to decide

when it’s time to stop the whitening. 


If you’re unsatisfied with your current bonding, veneer or crown you should also consider replacing them as

an option. Our master technician will consult with you before starting the treatment to answer all of

your concerns and discuss possible options. 



White Spots on Teeth


Many of us have white spots or streaks on our teeth, often we may not even realize they exist.  We’ll

inspect your teeth before starting the procedure and point out any white spots we find.  They’re often

covered up by stains and don’t show up prominently.  The white spots may have been caused by previous

orthodontic treatment or they may be genetic. As we remove the stains from teeth with whitening, the white

spots will become more prominent. The white spots will also get even brighter because they will whiten as

well.  Usually, after a few days the white spots will blend in a bit more.  But expect them to possibly stand out

more in the beginning.



Dietary Restrictions post whitening


For the first 48 hours the pores in enamel are open, they can absorb stains faster than before.  As a rule

anything that stains a white shirt, will stain your teeth.  We realize that the diet is very restrictive.  

Please do your best, if you happen to eat or drink something you shouldn’t then brush your teeth or rinse

with water right after. If you plan on drinking coffee please do so with a straw, this way only the back of your

teeth are exposed to coffee.


Sensitivity from teeth whitening 


Teeth Sensitivity during and after teeth whitening is an important concern for our clients and our office. 

We want you to be comfortable during and after the procedure. While 90% of our clients complete the entire

treatment, it’s important to understand that completing the three or four 15-minute sessions of teeth whitening

is not for everyone.


We monitor our clients closely and encourage them to let us know when they start feeling sensitivity. 


Sensitivity is a “zing,” or a “zap” that your tooth may feel during the procedure. One or two is normal

but more than that means that it’s time to stop.  Our clients generally get good results even if they’ve

completed just 2 sessions.  Sensitivity is the body’s natural way of telling you that it’s time to stop.  If the

whitening process is stopped before teeth become more sensitive, you will be much more comfortable for the

rest of the day.



Sensitivity 


In a recent survey of 250 clients who had teeth whitening in our office; 89% reported little or no sensitivity

after tooth whitening, 9% reported some sensitivity or discomfort, 2% of clients reported discomfort for the

first 24 hours.


Pain Management


Although moderate to severe sensitivity is rare, unfortunately a small percentage (~11 %) of our clients

will experience some discomfort after the whitening. Although we try to encourage everyone to stop when

their teeth start to feel sensitive, it’s not always easy for the client to stop before sensitivity increases. Taking an

anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen, Advil, Aleve etc…relieves the nerves inside teeth that got inflamed

during the whitening treatment. 


Please note Tylenol is not an anti-inflammatory, it works best when taken in combination with an anti-

inflammatory.  We recommend taking 400mg (2 pills) every 4 hours if sensitivity persists. 


Certain toothpastes such as Sensodyne can relieve sensitivity. At home, we recommend applying the

toothpaste for sensitivity to your teeth for 5-10 minutes.



Whitening Is Not for Pregnant Women


Although teeth whitening is a very safe procedure.  Doctors in general do not recommend any elective c

osmetic procedures for pregnant women.  Even if the risk is just 0.000001% it’s still something that’s not

worth taking. There has not been any harm ever reported, it’s just not a risk worth taking.
