Tips before bleaching: the key steps

To perform a good whitening and that this is durable, we have to prepare our teeth for the treatment to be effective.

Check at the dentist: we must go to our dentist to make a complete review and rule out any kind of problem that may affect the treatment.

Cleaning: if you have not yet done the annual cleaning recommended by experts, it is time. Before performing a tooth whitening is essential to perform a cleaning because with it, we can eliminate problems such as stains or tartar.

The days before: the days before the treatment are the key days. It is important that, during these days do not use any type of mouthwash or aggressive toothpastes, as they can harm the treatment.

Allergies: If you are allergic to some type of item that is used during whitening, talk to your dentist so he or she can decide if the treatment is right for you.

Tips during treatment: is it painless?

It is a completely painless and non-invasive treatment, which usually lasts about 60 minutes depending on each patient. It should be added that it does not deteriorate tooth enamel.

It is also very important to go to a good center, because there you will create the molds to your measure and will suit your needs.

After bleaching: what can I do and what not

This step is arguably the most important in the process. Thanks to what we do after the treatment, our whitening will be more or less durable.

General tips for teeth whitening:

Do not smoke. It is one of the strictest steps to follow so that your smile does not return to the previous one.

Strict dental hygiene. It is no longer worth skipping brushing, whitening requires daily cleaning to make the treatment effective and durable. On the other hand it is also advisable to refrain from the use of mouthwash that may contain chlorhexidine, as they are too aggressive for our mouth.

Use of the splint. For 15 days after treatment, a splint should be applied for two hours for treatment to be finished adapting to the mouth. It is very important that our mouth is with impeccable hygiene. Once these two hours have passed, we must clean the splints as well as our teeth.

Foods to avoid:

Drinks with dyes. Coffee, wine or tea are some of the drinks that should be discarded from your diet.

Fruit. not all fruit is discarded but it is recommended to reduce the consumption of strawberry or raspberry. Likewise, it is also recommended not to abuse the consumption of citrus as they can damage the enamel.

Curiosity: lipstick

It is not something that is scientifically proven but, many professionals recommend that the use of lipsticks is not abused because, in a certain way they are in contact with our teeth and all the elements that form them can become very aggressive for our teeth.

A year later. What now?

Although the treatment lasts two years, it is advisable once the first 12 months after the whitening have passed, to return to the dentist for a review. Your dentist will be able to see how time has passed in your mouth and how it has affected the treatment and whether it has been lasting or not.

Many professionals recommend a cleaning after a year of treatment so that the effects do not disappear.
