After Care: 30 Minutes and 24 Hours Following Your Session | Manufacturer’s Tips
For 30 minutes following your LED (Laser) teeth whitening, do not consume food or drink, in addition, don’t swill the mouth with water, or brush your teeth for up to 30 minutes either, the reason for this is to allow the residue of whitening gel which remains on the teeth, to continue to work until it dissolves naturally.
After the initial 30 minutes you can begin eating and drinking, however, for 24 hours adhere to the guidance laid out below.
Non-alcoholic drinks you can have
Still or Sparkling Water, Tonic Water, Flavoured Water, Lemonade, Skimmed milk etc.

Vodka, Malibu, Vodka Ice, Gin, White Wine.

Red Wine, Beer, Guinness, alcohol which contains colour

Cereals, such as Rice Krispies with Skimmed milk.
Avoid all fruit except for Apples, Pears and Bananas, the first two should have the skin removed.
Avoid sauces such as Bolognese however White Pasta sauce is ok. Chewing gum is fine but no chocolates or sweets, etc.
It’s recommended by the manufacturer to substitute white toothpaste (if you use a coloured variety) in order to clean your teeth for up to 24 hours following the use of our product, in addition, coloured or clear whitening mouthwashes should also be avoided for up to 24 hours too.
If you smoke, it would also be beneficial if you can stop smoking for 24 hours too – we appreciate this particular suggestion may be more difficult to adhere to, should that be the case, then a reduction in the amount of cigarettes smoked in the time scale mentioned (following the use of our product) is an acceptable compromise. Vaping is acceptable, however please try and reduce the frequency of vaping for 24 hours too.
