Teeth Whitening After Care

Manufacturer's Guidelines

Manufacturer Aftercare Suggestions

Please do not eat or drink anything other than water for 30 minutes after whitening teeth.
To ensure your teeth do not suffer discolouration after they have been whitened it is important to eat only white foods for the first 12 hours. The pores of your teeth take up to 12 hours to close after whitening teeth and any coloured food will sink into the pores and stain.

It is also important that you do not smoke for 12 hours after whitening teeth as this will also cause discolouration.
