Now you have your sparkling new smile. The next 48 hours are important in enhancing and maximizing your whitening results.
Teeth sensitivity is common following whitening procedures and should subside within 24 to 48 hours. However if you are experiencing discomfort take 1 to 2 tablets of 200mg Motrin, every 4 hours as needed for pain.
For gum sensitivity apply a small amount of vitamin e oil to the gums as needed.
For the next 48 hours, dark staining substances should be avoided, such as:
- Coffee and/or tea
- Tobacco products
- Mustard or ketchup
- Red wine
- Soy sauce
- Berry pie
- Red sauces
