What Not to Eat?
During your whitening treatment and for 48 hours after your last whitening session your teeth will be extremely vulnerable to stains. That’s because the whitening process makes the tooth enamel more porous and likely to absorb pigments from foods and beverages.
Of course you’ve heard by now that eating certain foods will cause your teeth to stain and decrease your whitening treatment efficacy. The most obvious foods to stay from are:
coffee, tea, soda, wine and red sauce.
However there are other foods that you might not be aware of such as:
Curry, vinegar and vinaigrette dressings, fruits, berries, ketchup and colored candies
So What Can I Eat?
The good news for tea lovers and coffee lovers is that you can drink your favourite beverage through a straw just make absolutely sure that the beverage does not reach your teeth.
Teeth whitening Diet:
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, bagel, vanilla or plain yogurt, cereal with milk, and white or green tea, water, or apple juice.
Snacks: Pretzels, chips, crackers, bananas, apples, pears.
Lunch/Dinner: Sandwiches, white cheeses, rice and vegetable dishes, pasta with cream sauce, white fish, chicken, potatoes, white pizza (with cream sauce instead of marinara).
It is very important to stop smoking during your whitening treatment to get the results you are looking for. If you are not willing to stop smoking during the whitening treatment, then we cannot guarantee the best results for you. The best thing you can do in that case is try to minimize smoking as much as possible and to always wash your mouth after a smoke.
Long-Term Whitening Buddy
On average you need more than 2 whitening treatments per year, and that’s where Oralgen comes in! It makes your teeth whitening effort so much easier because you can do it at home whenever you want!
Oralgen is FDA cleared made of dentist grade ingredients and safe! Unlike many of the common Do It Yourself whitening treatments that will ultimately harm your teeth.
By purchasing an Oralgen whitening kit or gel you have clinical guarantees that the product will not only work, but that it’s safe to use.
H2O2 Hydrogen Peroxide
The main ingredient used in teeth bleaching by dentists is hydrogen peroxide. The advantage of using hydrogen peroxide gel is that it works fast and its effectiveness increases with contact time. We recommend using the kit for no more than 30 mins at a time to avoid teeth sensitivity.
Note: Using too much gel will cause H2O2 to reach your gums which will very likely burn a little bit, so if you feel a burn on your gums that might mean you are using too much get and should probably use a smaller amount for your next session.
Possible Side Effects of teeth whitening
This is a common side effect with usual whitening treatments. However, if you use the Oralgen Whitening gel for the recommended amount of time (20 mins) you should not experience any sensitivity. It is important that if it does happen from overuse, there’s no need to worry, this side effect is not permanent and will go away once you stop your whitening treatment.
This is when gums become slightly whiter than usual, which may be accompanied by mild burning. This is not a permanent, it is only a temporary effect and can be treated by doing the following:
- Rinse your mouth out with water making sure to remove all of the whitening product from your mouth
- If severe, take Vitamin E supplements to help accelerate the healing
Teeth can take on a slight to moderate blue or a “chalky” white color. This is also a temporary effect due to overuse, simply stop using your product until your teeth return to a more normal color. Afterwards, continue using the product for shorter periods of time with less frequency.
