Frequently Asked Questions

Will my teeth feel really sensitive after?

It is common to have some tooth sensitivity after teeth whitening treatment. It typically goes away after a few days and should only be mild. It is recommended to use a gentle, sensitive toothpaste to help with the sensitivity.

Does it hurt to have my teeth whitened?

Most patients don’t feel a thing it isn’t considered an invasive surgery. If you decide to have in-chair whitening, the appointment will take about 2 hours. You will lay comfortably in the dental chair whilst waiting for the whitening solution to take effect.

What food should I avoid after whitening?

We recommend you stay clear from colour rich foods or drinks. These include but are not limited to:

  • Tea or coffee
  • Red wine
  • Cola or other soft drinks
  • Acidic beverages
  • Soy sauce
  • Ketchup
  • Berries

Smoking is a huge contributor to staining and damaging your teeth. If you’re thinking about quitting, we are happy to provide you with some helpful resources.

Can I have my whitening touched up?

You certainly can. We provide you with a take-home kit so you can maintain the results at home. We will also provide you with at home instructions, so you know exactly how and when to use your whitening kit.

Along with whitening your teeth, it’s important to maintain proper oral health and hygiene. We recommend brushing your teeth morning and night and floss daily. This will help keep your teeth and gums in a healthy condition.

How long do results last?

Results will vary based on individual diet and lifestyle. However, you will get best long-lasing results if you take care of your teeth and avoid the above colour-rich food and drinks.

How do I know if my teeth are suitable for whitening?

We ask that you book in a consultation with our friendly dentist. We will be able to assess your teeth and gums and determine if you’re a good candidate for teeth whitening.

If you require any general or restorative work, we can plan this prior to teeth whitening treatment. We also offer interest-free payment plans so you can get your smile back now and pay later!
