The White Diet & Steps for Brightening Success
As of September 2019
Step 1 to Teeth Whitening
Book your appointment with one of the Certified Tooth Whitening Aestheticians at the Appearance Clinic and understand the process involved in restoring. After this appointment you will be given the Consent form, The White Diet sheet and a tube of Dental Grade toothpaste to help reduce any potential sensitivity.
Prepay and Save
After your consultation if you decide to go ahead and prepay for your dental treatment, your consult will be 100% free. If you want to go away and think about it you will be required to pay for the consultation. The consultation fee is discounted and covers staff time.
Read and educate yourself as not all machines are equal and those of you that know us, know that we like up to date technology and our machine is a Beyond II Ultra Sonic with Ionization. Essentially this means that while the Gel is on you teeth and the ultra sonic will be gently vibrating the particles to penetrate deeper into the tooth. The difference with our protocol is that we work on cycles, studies have shown that the maximum benefit of Gel activation is at approximately 12 - 20 minutes (depending on the level of staining). So depending on your assessment, we break your treatment up into cycles with a reapplication of Gel for each cycle ie. fairly white teeth might have 3 x 12 minute cycles, heavily stained might have 3 x 15 minute cycles.
Step 3 - Your Appointment
You must not have been to the dentist or hygienist for a scale or dental procedure for 2 weeks prior to your appointment , this is to ensure that your gums will have settled back down.
