Teeth are more susceptible to staining for the first 48 hours following bleaching treatments. For the first 48 hours after whitening, it is best to avoid dark-colored foods or beverages that can stain your teeth. Any item that can stain your clothes can also stain your teeth.
Teeth may also experience increased sensitivity to hot/cold in the days following a whitening procedure. Daily use of a desensitizing toothpaste may help alleviate this sensitivity.
Avoid berries, cola or other dark sodas, red wine, coffee and tea, tobacco, and ketchup, soy or other dark sauces.
