Here are some of our most Frequently Asked Questions about our organic teeth whitening services from our local community.

How to prepare for your teeth whitening treatment.


Stay hydrated.

Drinking water massively reduces sensitivity. Dehydrated nerves cause sensitivity, so drink before and after your teeth whitening appointment.

Don't brush or floss.

Don't brush or floss your teeth at least 6 hours prior to your appointment. This reduces sensitivity too. Brushing/flossing opens up your gum line and you’re more susceptible to experiencing sensitivity after your teeth whitening treatment.

Eat before your appointment.

You won’t be able to eat or drink anything other than water for 2 hours after your treatment. We also have our clients stick to a white diet for 24 hours after their teeth whitening treatment.

After Whitening Care


Teeth Whitening & Oral Health Tips


Coconut Oil Pulling

This improves oral hygiene and removes toxins from the body. The practice involves swishing oil around in your mouth to remove bacteria, which can turn into plaque and can cause your teeth to look yellow.


Brush with Baking Soda

It has natural whitening properties, which is why it's a popular ingredient in commercial toothpaste. It's a mild abrasive that can help scrub away surface stains on teeth. Apply once a week.


Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a natural bleaching agent that also kills bacteria in your mouth. Apply once a week.


Rinse With Apple Cider

Acetic acid, which is the main active ingredient in apple cider vinegar, effectively kills bacteria. The antibacterial property of vinegar is what makes it beneficial for oral health and whitening your teeth. Apply once a week.
