Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the teeth whitening take?
Each professional whitening session is 20-30 minutes and can even be done while tanning! You can even do this treatment at home with our mobile teeth whitening option. During your appointment, prescription strength gel is applied to the enamel, avoiding the gums and lips. Results are instant, lightening teeth 2-4 shades whiter each session and continue to develop over 24 hours post session.
Is there any prep or aftercare with teeth whitening?
You should brush your teeth before your session and eat, as you will want to only consume water after for up to two hours after your appointment. Dark staining foods such as red pasta sauces, wine and coffee should be avoided for 24h after your treatment as teeth are continuing to brighten.
How often can you whiten your teeth?
Depending on how white you want your teeth and how stained they are (which depends on how much coffee and red wine you drink ect.) you can start with 2 sessions a month or do a few back to back sessions for extra whitening power. We will give you a consultation and put together a plan that will work best for you. Each session comes with a touch up kit to take home and continue to use, as well as a complimentary chapstick and mouth wash!
What does the whitening gel taste like?
Fresh, minty and lightly sweet! The whitening gel will not make much contact with your tongue (it's ok if it does) so you likely won't notice a taste to the gel at all.
What product do you use for teeth whitening?
Our gel is different from other whitening options in several ways: it’s safe on enamel, protects gums, causes little to no-sensitivity, is a registered natural health product and on top of all that, it’s more cost-effective.
