In the dentist's office, a whitening treatment is completely safe and controlled by a professional. The whitening methods available on the market do not ensure the same effects as the professional whitening and it is not effective in all case of discoloration.
To make the effects of the whitening long lasting, maintain the "white diet" for 48 hours, meaning that you should not eat staining food and drink. The principle is simple: anything that can stain a white shirt, should be eliminated for 48 hours after the whitening. During this time you should also avoid smoking cigarettes. Many dentists recommend the white diet for a week after the treatment. To maintain the whitening effect, you can use whitening toothpaste for daily oral care.
