Brighten Your Smile: 7 Things To Know Before Your Teeth Whitening Treatment


At Brunswick Dental, we understand the importance of a radiant smile and offer professional teeth whitening treatments to help you achieve that. Before you take the plunge, let’s explore some key considerations that will ensure your teeth whitening experience is as effective and comfortable as possible.

1. Consultation Is Key: Before undergoing any cosmetic dental treatment, including teeth whitening, it’s crucial to consult with our experienced dental professionals. We’ll assess your oral health, the current shade of your teeth, and discuss your expectations to determine if teeth whitening is the right option for you.

2. Types of Teeth Whitening: Day or Night Teeth Whitening: depending upon your lifestyle, we’ll help you understand the differences and recommend the best approach based on your individual needs.

3. Realistic Expectations: While teeth whitening can yield impressive results, it’s important to have realistic expectations. The degree of whitening achieved may vary based on factors such as your starting tooth colour and lifestyle habit. Our goal is to enhance your smile while ensuring it looks natural and healthy.

4. Preparation Is Key: Before your teeth whitening treatment, we might recommend a professional cleaning to ensure optimal results. Removing surface stains and plaque build-up can improve the effectiveness of the whitening process.

5. Post-Whitening Care: Maintaining your newly brightened smile requires proper aftercare. We’ll provide you with guidelines on foods and drinks to avoid immediately after treatment, as well as tips to prolong the results. Regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups, are essential to preserving your smile’s brilliance.

6. Lifestyle Considerations: Certain lifestyle choices, such as tobacco use, excessive consumption of staining beverages (like coffee and red wine), and poor oral hygiene, can impact the longevity of your teeth whitening results. Making positive changes can help you enjoy a whiter smile for longer.

7. Long-Term Maintenance: Regular use of ‘top-ups’ will be necessary to maintain the desired level of whiteness. Our team will guide you on the appropriate use and how often to top-up based on your unique situation.

At Brunswick Dental Practice, your smile is our priority. Before embarking on your teeth whitening journey, we want to ensure you’re well-informed and confident about the process. A brighter smile awaits, and our experienced team is here to make your teeth whitening experience both rewarding and comfortable.

If you’re ready to achieve a radiant smile that reflects your inner confidence, schedule a consultation with us today.
