If you're considering professional tooth whitening treatment, you may be wondering what to expect. Here's a step-by-step guide on what typically happens at Sparkle Smiles Studio during a teeth whitening treatment.
Initial consultation: Before the treatment, our dental professional will examine your teeth and discuss your goals for whitening. They may also take before-and-after photos to track your progress.
Pre-treatment preparation: The dental professional will clean your teeth to remove any surface stains and debris. They will apply a protective gel or barrier to your gums and soft tissues to minimize any potential irritation from the whitening agents.
Whitening application: The dental professional will apply the whitening agent to your teeth, which is a gel. They will also use a LED lamp to activate the whitening agent and enhance the results. The whitening agent will typically be left on your teeth for 15-30 minutes and may be reapplied several times during the treatment.
Post-treatment evaluation: After the whitening treatment, the dental professional will evaluate your results and provide guidance on post-treatment care. They may also schedule follow-up appointments or touch-up treatments as needed.
Post-treatment care: To maintain your results, it's important to follow your dental professional instructions on post-treatment care. This may include avoiding certain foods and beverages, using a sensitivity toothpaste, and maintaining good oral hygiene habits.
Overall, a professional teeth whitening treatment by a registered dental hygienist at Sparkle Smiles is a safe and effective way to enhance your smile. By understanding what to expect during the treatment, you can feel confident and prepared for the process. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to ask our dental professional for guidance and support.
