Tooth Bleaching: You should avoid teeth staining drinks like tea, coffee, wine etc. while bleaching your teeth. Also, refrain from having acidic drinks like fruit juices, fizzy drinks, and alcohol, which can worsen your tooth sensitivity.
Teeth Whitening: You can enjoy foods devoid of natural or artificial colourings like white rice, white bread, lean meats, fish, potatoes, cauliflowers, egg whites, cheese etc. Avoid pigmented sauces and condiments like turmeric, soy sauce, ketchup, mustard etc.
Teeth bleaching: If you opt for at-home bleaching trays, you can expect to see results after 2-3 weeks of use. We recommend you wear the trays for a few hours every day during this time, most people find it more convenient to wear the trays overnight.
Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening using home bleaching trays will get results within a few weeks of wearing the tray for the designated time every day.
If you have sensitivity after teeth whitening, you can ask your dentist to prescribe desensitizing toothpaste or gel. Avoid rinsing the mouth with cold water, and instead, use lukewarm water.
In most cases, professional teeth whitening will last anywhere between six months to two years, depending on your eating habits and oral hygiene. Your whitened teeth are susceptible to stains from pigmented food such as tea, coffee, ketchup, wine, beets etc. So to make your teeth whitening treatment last longer, drink lots of water, eat non-staining foods and brush immediately after your meals.
