What to expect from a professional teeth whitening kit in Brampton

Who doesn’t want to have a dazzling, white smile? This is why teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental treatments. Over time, your teeth can get stained. If you want to make your smile beam bright and white, Opalescence is the perfect professional product. However, before you make a decision, there are some things that you should know, including what to expect from a professional at-home teeth whitening kit. 

What to do before using a teeth whitening kit?

Teeth whitening is a relatively simple procedure. However, there are some things you need to know before the treatment:

  • Eat before you start. Opalescence tooth whitening systems are to be worn overnight for best results. However, suppose you are not comfortable wearing them overnight. In that case, opalescence tooth whitening systems could also be worn 2-4 hours twice a day.
  • Brush your teeth before the trays are inserted. Food deposits and plaque can prevent the whitening solution from entering the surface. It is recommended to clean your teeth right before you begin the process thoroughly. Alternatively, you can schedule an appointment with your dentist to clean your teeth professionally before taking the Opalescence whitening kit home. 
  • Use desensitizing toothpaste. For a few days, before you commence your whitening treatment, you should brush your teeth using desensitizing toothpaste to reduce tooth sensitivity for the procedure. Not everyone experiences sensitivity. However, if this is a concern, speak to your dentist on a few recommendations to help subside any sensitivity. 
  • Wear headphones. This may seem like an odd suggestion. However, as mentioned above, if you choose to wear the whitening solution for 2-4 hours during the day, you may need some distraction. Listening to music or watching a few episodes of your favorite show will help you relax and enjoy the process. Not to mention it may even help the time go by faster. 
  • Wear comfortable clothes. Think of the treatment process like a spa service. Wearing comfy clothing will help set the tone of the experience.
  • Make sure that you have a clean face. Do not wear any makeup or lipstick.
