About The Procedure
Our special, gentle whitening gel contains active ingredients that remove not only surface stains, but also the stains found deep inside the teeth. So your teeth get whiter faster, and stay whiter longer.
To ensure your safety and comfort, The Teeth Whitening Shop treatments contain desensitisers and silicons eliminating the risk of experiencing tooth sensitivity.
The technician will first assess your needs, creating a teeth whitening plan that best fits you. Younger clients between the age of 16 and 25, for example, may only require a 30 min express laser teeth whitening session. Mature clients between the age of 25 to 70 or those with heavily stained teeth due to smoking or drinking coffee and red wine will be advised to undergo the one hour laser teeth whitening treatment.
Before the whitening process the technician will measure the colour of your teeth using a VITA shade master, using this shade guide to show you the current colour of your teeth.
(Tips: Bring an iPod or music device. Do not brush vigorously before your appointment. Bring a lip balm or Vaseline as lips can become dry.)
1. You’ll put on the protective eye goggles.
2. The teeth whitening technician will insert the The Teeth Whitening Shop soft flex teeth whitening kit into your mouth, resting the lips comfortably along the outside rim. You should bite down gently and keep a closed mouth — you can still swallow your saliva during the treatment. Most clients find the laser teeth whitening procedure very comfortable with some clients falling asleep during the laser teeth whitening process.
3. Additional lip protection cream may be applied to the outer surface of lips during winter months to help against chapped or dry damaged lips.
4. The teeth whitening technician will then start the laser machine, making sure the positioning of the equipment remains as close to the mouth as possible
5. Once the teeth whitening process is complete, the teeth whitening technician will then provide you with paper towels and a glass of water and instruct you to rinse out your mouth.
