Before Treatment


Tips to reduce sensitivity

Staying hydrated before a teeth whitening treatment helps to reduce the sensitivity of your teeth during and after the treatment. It also helps to ensure that your body is functioning optimally, which can improve the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

at least 6 hours prior to your appointment

You should avoid flossing before a teeth whitening treatment because it can cause small abrasions on the surface of your teeth and gums, which can increase sensitivity during the treatment.

Dress Comfortably

It is recommended to dress comfortably as you will be reclining in a horizontal position. This position simulates weightlessness, which can have a profound impact on the body's muscles and joints. Therefore, wearing loose, comfortable clothing can help you fully relax and enjoy the benefits of the massage chair without any restrictions or discomfort.

Tight clothing, restrictive belts, or jewelry may interfere with the massage chair's effectiveness and prevent the body from fully releasing tension and stress. Therefore, dressing comfortably is essential to get the most out of the zero-gravity massage chair experience.

Before Care FAQ's

To maximize the effectiveness of your treatment, brush your teeth and tongue lightly to avoid irritating the gums with excess pressure. You may floss your teeth the day prior, but not within 6 hours of your appointment, as this may cause additional sensitivity and/or discomfort. We recommend avoiding foods and drinks that are known to stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, for at least 24 hours PRIOR to your session.

If you are concerned about sensitivity, consider switching to a toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth a few days before your treatment.

Quality brands that offer toothpaste for sensitive teeth and have good ingredients include:
-Sensodyne Pronamel
-Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief
-Tom's of Maine Rapid Relief Sensitive

These toothpastes can help minimize discomfort during and after the whitening process.

After Care


Wait to eat for at least 2 hours
after your treatment

After a teeth whitening treatment, the pores in your teeth are open and more susceptible to staining. Waiting for 2 hours after the treatment allows time for the pores to close and for the enamel to re-harden, reducing the risk of new stains setting in.

It's important to follow this advice to ensure that your teeth stay white and bright for as long as possible after your treatment.

Avoid color in food and choose an

White foods are less likely to stain your teeth and can help you maintain the results of your teeth whitening treatment for longer.

Darkly pigmented foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine, and dark sauces can all cause staining, especially in the first 24 hours after a teeth whitening treatment.

By sticking to white foods such as chicken, rice, and white vegetables, you can help minimize the risk of new stains setting in and prolong the effects of your teeth whitening treatment.
