What preparation is necessary before the BriteSmile? treatment?
BriteSmile? elicits the best results on clean, healthy teeth. Therefore, a thorough cleaning is recommended prior to the treatment, to rid the teeth of plaque, tartar and rotting food particles. The dentist will always thoroughly examine the teeth while performing the cleaning to check for any fractures, inflammation or decay. Photographs might also be taken of the teeth prior to the bleaching procedure. This makes "before and after" comparisons more evident. Though the whitening procedure only takes an hour in the office, BriteSmile? toothpaste, dental trays and a less concentrated version of the gel may be given for home use. BriteSmile? is long lasting and effective, but stains can quickly reappear on the teeth - particularly if tobacco is being used.
